Traditional and modern Iboga use
Ibogaine is the holy sacrament of the spiritual Bwiti spirituality of Gabon and Cameroon. The Punu, Mitsogo and Fang tribes of Gabon and Cameroon are practitioners of Bwiti. It is traditionally an animistic religious practice based, as many African religions, on ancestor worship. In modern Bwiti in some cases they have incorporated parts of Christianity into a syncretistic system. It has been consumed probably for thousands of years in initiations and rites of passage. In smaller quantities they use it in dancing ceremonies and other more mundane religious practices.
In initiations it used in large amounts to create dissociative experiences to delve into the darker parts of once consciousness and to get in contact with the ancestral realm. Traditionally it has a variety of uses, from spiritual to healing pathological patterns. In modern use people see it as a useful agent for therapeutic use and to heal substance and emotional addictions.
