About Root Healing Iboga Retreats
Root Healing offers Iboga Retreats primarily in Thailand, but also in Mexico, Costa Rica, and Portugal. All Iboga Retreat ceremonies are done following the traditional Missoko Bwiti protocols laid out by 10th Generation Shaman Moughenda. Our main provider (Bio Below) trained with and was empowered as an Iboga Provider by Moughenda in Gabon. It is important for us to promote the Bwiti tradition when working with Iboga to encourage the healing help of the medicine’s spirit, our Bwiti brothers and sisters, other spirits, and ancestors. The Bwiti style of ceremony comes from the Iboga itself, and therefore, is the best method for our aim.
Another big priority of ours is SAFETY. We go above and beyond what many Retreats are offering to ensure a safe retreat. We have a Doctor and Nurses on staff who will help with evaluations, EKG‘s and monitoring throughout the ceremonies and processing days. Our Iboga Assisted Detox (IAD) program has some of the strictest safety measures in the industry with our Full-Time Doctor and Nursing staff who are always there. They will monitor with intensive care.
When it comes to healing with Iboga, we believe in a long term strategy. Our retreats are 7 days long, but the work extends outwards before and after the retreat. We will coach you along in your preparation for the retreat and offer an extensive 6-month integration process post-retreat. The reason our retreats are 7 days, is because we believe it is optimal for healing to include 2 ceremonies, 2 processing days, and 2 integration days.

Madeleine Cullerton - Hospitality/Coaching
Madeleine is a writer, nascent herbalist, and certified coach. After having been a cynic for many years regarding plant medicines, she finally came to Iboga in 2020 after seeing the incredible shift in Ryan. After two ceremonies, she knew this medicine had changed her life forever & committed to helping in its facilitation. Using her years of experience in the hospitality industry, she currently works as head of hospitality at Root Healing, providing a nourishing environment to its guests. As a practicing Buddhist & coach, she is integrating the profound teachings of the Bwiti (and therefore iboga) into her practices. Madeleine is an effective coach that works with our guest before, during and after retreat.
