WBAC 2020 Integration.

The World Bufo Alvarius Congress

México City
24-26 July 2020

The Conference

The 2020 World Bufo Alvarius Congress (WBAC) will be hosted again in Mexico City.  

 

WBAC’s theme this year is “INTEGRATION”. Even though the Bufo Alvarius toad is native to the Sonoran desert of Mexico and across to the southern USA, there is widespread use of the secretion from its glands across the world, and a global Bufo culture is blossoming. All of us have the joy and responsibility to nurture and shape this culture as we make sense of our experiences, sharing and exchanging information to develop best practices, safety, integration, conservation, science, understanding and so much more.

WBAC 2020 will host scientists, practitioners, (neo) shamans, academics, writers, filmmakers, psychonauts, natives, doctors, and people from all over the world that have experienced the healing of the Bufo Alvarius / 5-MeO-DMT medicine, or are interested in learning more. 

 

Due to the situation with the restrictions to travel, some of the talks will be on site and other ones will be streamed, making of this event an hybrid between online and live lectures, workshops, live concerts, and breakthrough groups.

 

Join us again for three days of communion at this global multidisciplinary gathering focused on this unique substance, its carrier, and related topics at our venue in Mexico City.

Learnings for 5MEO from the Iboga Movement

The Global Ibogaine Therapy Alliance (GITA) has been successful in creating cohesion from the myriad facets of the world of iboga and ibogaine. For the past ten years, GITA has established a Mission Statement, created Clinical Guidelines, led Research Initiatives, provided Patient Advocacy, and organised international conferences. From therapeutic to ceremonial, 'organic' to synthetic, and controlled to legal 'limbo', the field of Iboga has many parallels to that of bufo alvarius and 5-MeO-DMT.  Clare Wilkins, a GITA member who has sat on their Board of Directors since its inception, offers a model that could be of interest to the 5-MeO-DMT world. Chad Charles, the Conclave's Outreach Coordinator, joins her in exploring how existing structures within the bufo/5 world could learn from the successes and challenges that GITA has experienced in the last decade.
