Iboga showed me the truth. The emotions that I’ve been hiding since I was a child. It showed me what I was running from and how to feel.
All those interested in joining must have a phone consultation prior to placing a deposit. Email an introduction to firstname.lastname@example.org and we can arrange a time.
This is not a clinical or medically supervised retreat. Substance use, pharmaceutical use, mental disorders and poor health create risk that requires more time and supervision than we provide. Guests must be free from all drugs, pharmaceuticals, medications and alcohol prior to their ceremony. In some cases, more time is required. A phone consultation is needed to determine whether they may join or how long they must be substance-free.
Long drive or fly in guests are encouraged to travel the day before and all guests must stay locally, the night following. The cost for an IbogaJourney ceremony is $880 CAD. Confirmation of attendance is completed with an initial deposit of $300 CAD. Email email@example.com for payment info. Deposits are not refundable or transferable

IbogaJourney has provided for close to 700 people since its creation. Jeremy and Deena attend to every detail throughout the entire three days. They provide a space that feels safe and held in confidence and love. A space where surrender will be natural. They are present any moment guests require them.
The respect of silence in the ceremonies is much different than a Bwiti ceremony, but the Western ego has far thicker walls, and silence is the most effective environment for the medicine to penetrate to the core.
Iboga is from West Africa, and respect is given to tradition in many ways, like using raw root bark and moving into Bwiti music on the second night. Jeremy and Deena also incorporate First Nations
traditions, such as the talking stick and calling in the directions. This feels very appropriate as we tread lightly on a land so permeated with Indigenous energies. Many additions to ceremony have been intuitive, and can be unique to each group. Being comfortable with the providers is very important, so please feel free to contact us. We can also arrange an interview in person within the Squamish-Vancouver area.
