Bwiti Nganga

Our Nganga Makonza has trained extensively in Africa over many year and has completed the following rites and initiations: Muiri (Men’s Rites), Ngoyi (Female Rites), Edicka (2) (Le Ngondey), Moumeney (Le Ngondey), Mudaki ( Le Mangonga),
Sombi (Le Ngondey),Mougnimbi (Le Ngondey), Na Kombo (Le Ngondey), Kombi Na Missingui ( Le Mangonga), Nzegho (Black Panther)
Our job as Ngangas is to ensure the safety of our guests. We learn to step out of the way of Spirit so that it can heal the individual. We are servants of God; we do as we are told and create sacred space for guests so that they can heal and connect with Spirit.
Spirit saved my life; I will always be grateful and honoured to work alongside It.

The Sacred Wood


Some have claimed Iboga is a dangerous substance, but nothing could be further from the truth. That being said, there is a proper way to ingest Iboga, & the importance of ceremony & tradition cannot be understated. The journey of Iboga must be undertaken with a trained Nganga. That is where we come in
True healing begins within. You are Spirit; you are your own Healer. Iboga will show you the way. Looking to self-proclaimed “shamans” will not fix your situation; in fact, this often makes things worse.
Iboga is a Spirit of truth. It acts as your mirror. It will cleanse you, heal you, & save you from yourself and your racing mind. Iboga will ask you to face your inner demons & hold you accountable for your future actions.

What is Nganga

Servant to God

The Nganga being a man of God must know and embody Bwiti, meaning he lives without the need to control. He relinquishes to the divine connection to God entirely. He does not live outside of the self in material image. He does not live in ego or material gratification that seeks accolade, approval, or affirmation from others to justify his position of self. His seat is in the self and only through this sovereignty can he be the voice of spirit, the letting go of that which is, this is the protection we experience with Nganga. Nganga achieves attachment to Spirits through rites and initiations. These Spirits he embodies, he becomes more of the self through these connections and these subsequent connections bring protection and spiritual accuracy to those healing. The art is one of gentle pow

What is Iboga

Iboga is a spirit not a medicine

When we are here in this physical life, we are meant to be happy, spontaneous and joyous but this has been lost. As a protector Iboga is put here in this physical realm appearing as a plant but a spirit in nature. It opens up a portal to reconnect us to our greater personhood, so that we may iron out the physical maladies that we have created to assail us. We cannot lose the majesty of this gift. For life is about experience and if you believe in evolution and survival of the fittest, that we are born and then we die, then you will have fear. Let us all be safe in the knowledge that death doe
