How to Prepare for your Iboga Retreat Experience

STEP #1 ENSURE THAT YOU ARE INFORMED ABOUT YOUR CHOICE TO EXPERIENCE IBOGA

At SoulCentro, we support informed consent and cultural context to the very best of our ability. The iboga experience also requires personal accountability for our choice to partake. Do your due diligence to ensure that you are making a conscious decision. Review the supplementary information offered about iboga offered on our retreat page (scroll down). Please note: There is much misinformation about iboga on the web, especially with reviews for DIY or treatments without responsible medical support, thus, it is important to learn from credible sources, such as those noted on the iboga resource page of our website.

STEP #2 ​REGISTRATION + SACRED AGREEMENT

​SACRED AGREEMENT

I agree to follow all advice of the medical directors as it pertains to this treatment. In the event that medical advice is not followed by mistake, I agree to be completely transparent and promptly communicate the details—for the my safety and the safety of the ceremony container.

“Coming in a good way.” I am willing and able to participate in a good way, with respectful communication, openness to the collaborative process, and understanding that hosts honor a traditional lineage. Services are a creative partnership—not therapy or medical treatment. Results may vary depending on individual circumstances, and they can be related to the depth of my own participation.

While the SoulCentro team provides comprehensive information for informed consent regarding the medicine experience, I understand that each transformational experience may have unique elements that no words can describe, and I understand that it is also my responsibility to conduct personal research for medicine work. I understand and value that the modalities discussed can be challenging.  I understand that the modalities discussed have certain risks.

I agree to stay present at the retreat site for the entire 8 day retreat so that the team can properly care for me with this long-acting, powerful medicine, and I understand that sacred traditional sacrament is always optional.

I agree to not hold the facilitators liable for any challenging results or personal choices I make after services.

I understand that I am responsible for creating a plan and selecting support professionals for the broader integration process, post-ceremony.

Services are not meant to diagnose, prescribe, recommend, or in any way to replace qualified medical & psychiatric care. No services are presented as a cure for any particular ailment.

I am responsible for voicing my questions, concerns, and boundaries throughout all communications and the retreat process.

STEP #4 REVIEW OUR CANCELLATION POLICY

Deposits are generally non-refundable in order to make this retreat possible. It can sometimes take months to properly prepare guests for an optimal experience, both medically and otherwise, so last minute changes are not sustainable. Thank you in advance for your understanding.

With at least 30 days or more advance written notice, 100% of the deposit can be transferred to a future retreat—or to another guest who is prescreened & qualified by our staff—to be utilized within 1 year.

With less than 30 days advance written notice: 0% of the deposit is transferable—unless we are able to fill the space with another guest who is screened & approved by our staff, which is not guaranteed.

EXCEPTIONS: In the event of any government imposed travel restrictions or documented current personal covid diagnosis, 100% is transferable to a future date within 1 year, at any time. In the event that medical tests reveal contraindicated medical conditions (very rare), 100% of the deposit will be refunded immediately if all required medical test results have been submitted at least 45 days in advance.

*Refunds or transfers are not available if contraindicated substances are consumed prior to the retreat, within the specified time frame noted by our medical directors. This will result in complete forfeiture of deposit. The medical team reserves the right to drug test prior to the retreat if they have questions. “Contraindicated substance” is defined by our medical team to avoid problematic interactions, and this could include but is not limited to illicit drugs, medications, herbs, alcohol, or other substances.

If any extenuating circumstances arise that cause the facilitators or venue to cancel the retreat, 100% refund will be granted immediately.
