Iboga is a small tree that is indigenous to central western Africa. In Gabon, this tree is used by the people there to understand Life itself. The bark of the roots of the Iboga tree contains very special medicine (alkaloids). The roots of the Iboga tree are harvested in a very special way. When humans eat this root bark medicine, it acts as a key to gain access to the spirit of Iboga. Eating this medicine allows and asks this spirit to come into their body and mind. Once the Iboga spirit has entered the body and mind, consciousness is broadened and expanded.
