    Iboga Spirit, Plant Psychedelics & The Shamanic Journey | Herbal Hour Podcast #82

    Iboga Spirit, Plant Psychedelics & The Shamanic Journey | Herbal Hour Podcast #82

    The Iboga tree is central to the Bwiti spiritual practices in West-Central Africa, mainly Gabon, Cameroon and the Republic of the Congo, where the alkaloid-containing roots or bark are used in various ceremonies to create a near-death experience, and on a more regular basis is eaten in smaller doses in connection with rituals and tribal dances performed at night. In 2000, the Council of Ministers of the Republic of Gabon declared Tabernanthe iboga to be a national treasure.


    In lower doses, iboga has a stimulant effect and is used to maintain alertness while hunting. Recent research in the west has centered around potentials of the alkaloid ibogaine in the treatment of drug addition and mental health disorders.

A wealth of knowledge

I love listening to this podcast. Every single one is another great viewpoint that has opened my eyes to many different facets in healing, mindfulness and holistic health.

Not so pleased

As a mental health therapist, I’m finding some of this information to be somewhat counterproductive to wellness. To be fair, I’ve only listened to one episode, with Laura Gouge, and was not impressed with the guest.
We have a tendency to subtly and not so subtly shame people who struggle emotionally and many mental health practitioners do not really understand the humans mind, let alone one that has been traumatized. Gouge seems to be one of these practitioners.
I will definitely listen to more episodes though as it appears the person who moderates carried the episode and seemed well versed in mental wellness.
