Iboga Wellness Center

Iboga Wellness Center is an Iboga retreat centre situated in the verdant region of Perez Zeledon, Costa Rica. Established in January 2014, it boasts the distinction of being the longest-running shamanic, traditional Bwiti Iboga retreat in the Western Hemisphere. The centre provides a serene and supportive environment where individuals can undergo profound life transformations through the sacred medicine of Iboga, guided by ceremonies rich in the spiritual traditions and teachings of the Bwiti people.

The facility spans a 4-acre property featuring a 9-bedroom house surrounded by lush plant life, trails, and beautiful views. With a focus on integrating nature and healing, the property is home to over 100 fruit trees and numerous species of birds and animals. A key aspect of the centre’s offering is its culinary experience, where private on-site chefs craft meals using locally sourced, whole foods, catering to a wide range of dietary preferences. The retreat programs, including the IWC 7 Night Retreat and the Iboga Selva – 5 Night Retreat, are designed to provide a holistic approach to healing, incorporating both traditional Bwiti practices and modern therapeutic techniques.

The team at Iboga Wellness Center is led by Levi Barker, who has over 15 years of experience with Iboga and has been serving the medicine for the past 8 years. Trained by a 10th-generation Gabonese Bwiti Shaman, Levi and his team ensure that every guest receives personalized care and attention throughout their healing journey. The centre’s commitment to creating a safe and nurturing space allows guests to explore deep spiritual growth and personal development, making it a sanctuary for those seeking to heal and transform their lives.
