Medicine work is about 5% of what happens in ceremony and 95% of how we prepare for it and what we do with it afterward, which is the art of becoming medicine, a little bit more every day.

When you come to Iboga wanting your life to be like a “new rose,” what you get right after ceremony is not a new rose. What you get is a rosebud, with the template for a perfect bloom. A rose bud needs careful tending: sunlight, weeding, fertilizer, nurturing, songs, admiration, and attention. This is likened to the pathway of integration.

Integration is vital; it means practicing the precious answers and embodying the insights we received from medicine into our daily lives.

Integration can take many forms including:

Art therapy


Psychedelic integration support groups

Positive community connection

Iboga & Bwiti informed therapists, coaches, and counselors

Silence & meditation

Nature therapy

Tending holistic health

Deep rest

Psychedelic integration support groups

Complimentary recovery programs

Changes in diet & exercise

Studying new life skills

Integration is ultimately the sacred responsibility of every guest. Every person is unique. Thus, there is no one cookie-cutter integration plan or helping professional that is right for each person. Journeyers must design their own long-term integration plan and commit to it.

To help support a broader integration process, we offer:

One-on-one Bwiti integration session with a lead facilitator post-retreat

Complimentary monthly online Bwiti Fire Talk integration calls
The signature SoulCentro Integration “Play Book” filled with integrative information, questions, and projects
