Retreat InfoAbout the Retreat:
IbogaQuest is located in a high mountain valley an hour and a half from the Mexico City airport. It is an ancient pueblo, overlooked by a pyramid still central to the cultural life of the community. There is a thriving mountain spirit of protection and a rich history of traditional shamanic healing.
We began over 12 years ago as an unintentional community with a shared interest in helping ourselves and others heal and make fundamental changes. Over the years, we have honed our skills and evolved into a professional and focused team of caregivers, prepared to cheerfully take on both the challenges of addiction interruption and at the same time able to provide the set and setting for a safe deep dive into the psychospiritual realm. We are actually one of the few hybrid Ibogaine providers around. We have endeavored to build a reputation for safety and excellent patient care. A reputation based on a deep respect both for the medicine itself and the glowing experiences of those whom we’ve had the honor to serve.
We consciously create an atmosphere promoting mindfulness and awareness offering a protected and inspiring space for our guests to process inner material, aloud or in silent contemplation. We aspire to treat all those seeking our services with compassion and have seasoned meditation teachers and therapists on our team to facilitate the deep connection with the Iboga Spirit.Description of Services:
We seek to honor and nurture the person beyond the addiction, psychological or emotional issue, or spiritual blockage that currently manifests as suffering and turmoil. While working with this plant is rewarding and fulfilling unto itself, what really moves us is seeing real transformation in those that trust us with their care and the many lives that have been transformed from contact with this medicine.
We offer 6-10 day programs for spiritual growth, mood disorders and addiction interruption. Working with 4 people per month we purposely keep our groups intimate and very personalized with a high ratio of staff to guests in order to provide an authentic connection within our community.Practitioners:

Our ProcessOverview of Experience:
Preparation: Application process and medical testing in conjunction with one of our team members as well as our doctor. Phone consultations and guidance by a team member to help prepare each individual depending on their specific needs. Specific attention is paid to helping those coming for addiction interruption to help set up Aftercare.
Experience: Your 6-10 days with IbogaQuest would essentially include a flood dose of Ibogaine, which is a 36 hour experience, followed by 2 days of recovery and engagement with our staff for such things as massage, psychotherapy, meditation, breathwork, sweat lodge, and mountain forest walks. Followed by a significant booster dose of Ibogaine and then a day or 2 for integrating the profound experience prior to departure.
Integration: We offer a free monthly group integration via Zoom with one of our psychotherapists. Our therapists are also available for individual integrations sessions for a very affordable fee upon request.Intake Process:
We have come to understand the role of careful screening and straightforward communication, as well as the benefits of good pre-care and after-care as integral aspects of optimal healing. We work closely with our doctor and medical team during the application and intake process requiring several medical tests and an in-depth history of each participant. Unfortunately, we cannot accept people for treatment who are either unlikely to benefit, or for whom treatment would be ill-advised due to underlying medical or psychiatric problems.Supplemental Modalities: Meditation, Massage, Psychotherapy, Temazcal (Sweat Lodge Ceremony), Gestalt Therapy, Breathwork, Mountain Hikes, Addiction CounselingPsychedelic Substances Offered: IbogaHow does this Center source medicine?:
