Hi List!!
Was reading some stuff on Ibogaine and I found something on the Bwiti credo.
Is  fascinating for me to find out that they believe thet a full confession is necessary before using Ibogaine :
"
In all Bwiti sects, initiation is considered to be a direct contact between man and the Divine and this is triggered by the ingestion of iboga root in large quantities: 50-100 times the quantity used during the ordinary collective ngozé. The person to be initiated must ingest it in repeated small doses within a 8-14 hour time-span. The ingestion of the hallucinogen is preceded by a ritual offering to the forest and to its trees, and also by a confession pronounced before the presiding officiants. The confession concerns the entire past of the individual. According to the Fang people, sins of an antisocial nature are by far the worst. In the event of non-confession of sins, it is thought that the effect of iboga can trigger a "bad trip" with unpredictable consequences, leading to madness or - should the concealed sin be homicide - even to the death of the person being initiated. There is only one confession and it is made once in a lifetime, during the first part of the initiation."

Same principles of AA / NA   Where they believe that you cant have a full recovery if you don't unload the weight of sins ?/!
