Although headquartered in Costa Rica, facilitators provide Ikara Retreat Centre Ontario ceremonies in Canada. Iboga is an ancient plant medicine that originates with the Bwiti of Gabon. It offers remarkable healing potential to those suffering from addiction. It is also a psychedelic medicine. When used in a ceremony it offers seekers a new perspective on their lives and selves.
Facilitator and Nganga, or shaman, at Ikara Retreat Centre, Luis Makonza Da Silva often returns home to Canada. He offers private and comfortable Iboga ceremonies at retreats in Ontario. Makonza sees his role in the ceremony as one of creating “a sacred space for guests so that they can heal and connect”.
