Iboga Integration

Experiencing a powerful Iboga retreat begins to create huge shifts in our consciousness. However, the work to uncover the true self does not end when you leave the retreat environment.

In fact the reality is that this exciting and transformative work has only just begun. Integration begins when the ceremony ends and we begin to process what we have learned under the direct influence of the medicine. Read this article for a broader look at what to expect, and tips on how to ride the wave.

At Awaken Your Soul we place a significant amount of importance on the integration support and highly encourage guests not to skip this step!

Awaken Your Soul Iboga Integration

Integration includes the following, as well as many other, elements:

  • Taking the lessons and teachings of Iboga and implementing them into everyday life
  • Nurturing our connection to our soul and to the medicine
  • Focusing on working through areas of our life that need love, attention and clarity
  • Learning to stay present in our everyday life; not spending time in pain of the past or worrying about the future
  • Staying connected to our truth, valuing our life, consistently reminding ourselves that life is a gift
  • Learning how to set intentions and manifest abundance in our life
  • Using the mind as a tool, not the master; beginning to change old thought patterns, programming, conditioning and belief systems that no longer serve us; working to break down our limiting beliefs
  • Creating a plan to make necessary life changes that bring peace, wellness, abundance and support our highest truth
  • Potentially changing relationships, careers, or relocating (once we hav given the experience time to settle)
  • Looking at our life from a different, more grateful and loving perspective
  • Beginning to forgive ourselves and learning to cultivate self-love

*Integration is recommend for EVERYONE. Without this post-ceremony support the teachings and the transformations are often not as deep nor lasting. It is also critical for those who are looking to heal from addiction and trauma. This journey will truly elevate with the appropriate support, a trained professional will help make the effort and investment deep and lasting.

Why is post ceremony iboga integration support important?

During a retreat, we are doing intensive healing work in as little as a week’s time. Some will say that this can be equivalent to 10+ years of psychotherapy. This rapid and profound shedding leaves us sensitive, vulnerable, and can be a lot to process all at once. With some objective guidance these lessons can truly be applied to our daily lives, and thus producing lasting results.

In the weeks and months to follow ceremony, we will at times experience our shadow side and our lightness as well. Integration is an essential part of accepting our lives and embracing everything about ourselves.

This takes time, and having unbiased and experienced support is invaluable and will help move through the layers in a smooth and supported way. Implementing practices and lifestyle changes is also paramount!

We recommend guides whom we trust implicitly. Either they are AYS facilitators, trusted colleagues or have supported us through our own Iboga integration. If you are looking to reach out we strongly recommend that you have a conversation with them in advance to see if it is a good fit!

Integration guide.

Johannah has over 20 years of experience in the mental health field, having served as an Addictions and Trauma therapist, in clinical and psychiatric settings.

Johannah has found that the trauma informed integration work that follows ceremony, is the most vital part to creating lasting changes in your life. She assists you in becoming the embodiment of the insights that the medicine provided for you and allowing them to become a living reality by integrating the parts of yourself that you have been disconnected from for so long due to trauma, conditioning and programming. The medicine gives you critical access points, to which you can utilize integration to create new, lasting pathways to your fullest soul expression. Her compassionate and comprehensive approach to integration utilizes restructuring the psyche, repatterning the nervous system, healing the gut microbiome, restoring your innocent inner child, coming home deeply into your body and learning to listen to your heart. Johannah utilizes the most updated trauma resolution modalities, somatic practices and spiritual guidance to weave you back into the embodiment of your soul.

IHDS Certified Human Design Analyst, Guide, and Astrologer

John is a seasoned astrologer and Human Design Analyst, certified by the International Human Design School. He provides guidance based on extensive experience over decades in working with plant medicines, including undergoing multiple Iboga journeys with Awaken Your Soul.

Human Design, similar to astrology, utilizes your birth time and location to generate a chart called a BodyGraph, that outlines the mechanics of your life force. This chart highlights consistent gifts, natural capacities, and susceptibilities to external influences. Understanding your design offers a roadmap for navigating life more authentically. At its core, Human Design fosters a connection with the body's innate intelligence, serving as a compass for your life's journey. This alignment allows the mind to assume its intended role as an observer, enhancing one’s life experience and fulfillment of purpose.

John's approach blends deep knowledge in these systems with lived experience, tailored to acknowledge the individuality and inner authority of each client. He aims to support individuals in connecting with their true selves, fostering enhanced awareness, acceptance, and self-love in harmony with their authentic nature.

Dr. Carder Stout

Depth Psychotherapy & Soul Integration

Dr. Carder Stout is an LA based psychologist who has been initiated into the Bwiti tradition several times. As a trauma survivor, Iboga has done for him what years of therapy could not. Carder's eyes had been opened by the medicine but still challenges lay ahead. Forming a strong connection to soul helped him navigate the complex nature of the human experience.

The ceremony is simply the beginning of your new way of being. But often we feel pulled back into old patterns of behavior and beliefs that no longer serve us. In the integration there is continued psychological work to be done. The transition between having the knowledge and putting it into practice is where Carder’s expertise will help you most, developing a plan to stay connected to your soul and use it as your biggest asset towards continued healing. His focus will help you to distinguish between the voice of your soul and that of your ego, so that you stay centered in love, wisdom and truth. Carder works with depression, anxiety, trauma and relationships as well.

Being True to You

Transformational Addiction Recovery

Being True To You has several qualified coaches at an affordable cost to support you through psycho-spiritual transformation and/or trauma or addiction recovery. AYS has a specific core group of their coaches we recommend and founder Deanne Adamson will help fit each guest with their ideal coach.

After you leave the retreat you will continue your transformational experience through a coaching session with the intention that you will see the value in this support and continue at your own pace to ensure lasting results. Integrating your Iboga ceremonies, especially relating to trauma/addiction recovery require ongoing introspection. Committing to the post-retreat work is as vital to the healing process as the retreat itself.
