Tricia Eastman is an Iboga facilitator who has supported over 1600 people's journey with this powerful plant medicine. Tricia shares how she found herself face-to-face with the Bwiti tribe in Gabon and how she was initiated into three different lineages and given permission to carry and serve this potent medicine.
In this mind-expanding episode, Tricia describes some of the bizarre practices of the Bwiti lineage from "pygme paste", to genies, to mermaid deities. She describes what a “Nema” is, what “Mabundo” means, and the interesting use of an “Akume Torch.”
We talk about how Iboga is becoming endangered, how we can support organizations like "Blessings of the Forest" which are engaged in sustainable growing practices, reciprocity, and Tricia shares her thoughts on creative alchemy and integration.
