I had first heard of the healing and visionary capacity of the sacred wood Iboga in 2007 when I traveled in Nepal. It came at a time when I was desperately seeking answers and healing. Being from Malaysia, it took me many years before I would step foot in Gabon, and become initiated into the Bwiti at Ebando.
I was fortunate to be able to stay in Gabon for nearly 2 years. I had the opportunity to participate in not only my own initiation, but as a supporter in the initiation ceremonies of other bandzis (initiates) at Ebando. Tatayo and his team are amazing, generous, capable and highly in tune and skilled.
I knew I was in good hands the moment the preparation rituals for the initiation began, and I was able
to relax and concentrate on the many levels of healing and other processes that was happening. My initiation was truly life changing. It was profound, shockingly beautiful, intense and its positive effects and guidance is still unfolding in my life. It has been a true rebirth and it has given back to me a sense of love, and a connection to the heartbeat of life.
I am grateful to Tatayo and his team for showing the way, taking care of us and being wacky, wild and wonderful. Thank you Ebando!
