Iboga and personal transformation – an MD’s inquiry [ONLINE]

About this Event
An intimate conversation between Dr. Pamela Kryskow and three Canadians who have benefited from iboga treatment to live healthier and more empowered lives.
Ibogaine is an indole alkaloid extracted mainly from the Tabernanthe iboga plant that grows in West Africa. It has been used traditionally for centuries in Gabon for its healing effects and as part of rituals and initiation ceremonies. Ibogaine works in the mind and psychological self, allowing a person to release stories and patterns clearing the path to start developing new ways of being and behaving, and connecting spiritually.
Early scientific findings show some promise that iboga could provide a very effective treatment for neurodegenerative diseases, such as Parkinson’s.

Maria was dependent on opiates for a number of years. In 2016 she got clean with the help of Ibogaine. 4 years later, she’d still clean. She’s got an amazing life today and a beautiful 20-month-old baby boy.
Robyn K. Experiencing Iboga and the simple truths of the Bwiti tradition is the reason Robyn is who and where she is today. A mother and co-founder of IbogaSoul Shamanic Healing Retreats. Aware of the soulful power of her inner being and the innate human capacity to create with the mind, Robyn embarked on a journey to aid in gifting personal power back to the people. In 2019 along with her husband, Mark Howard, their retreat centre was featured in the award-winning documentary film ‘Dosed’.
