Chad Charles and Clare Wilkins (Canada, USA, Mexico)

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.

PANEL: The God Experience

Amongst all the necessary discussion on conservation, best practices integration, etc, let us not forget the heart of the 5-MeO revelation: the God experience. If toad is a key to unlock our own innate divine potential, what do we do with this? How do we keep the sacrament sacred? How can we avoid the dogmas of religion to maintain a dynamic personal relationship with the divine within?

 

 

12:40 - 13:20  

David Gallegos (USA)

The Importance of Therapeutic Integration

The therapeutic approach to 5MEO is based on the idea that people do not need to be fixed, they need to be guided, motivated and understood, so that they can reach their full potential, enjoy happy relationships, and have meaningful lives free of trauma.

Spiritual emergency caused by the consumption of bufo, a transpersonal approach

The ego dissolving qualities of the 5-MeO experience can precipitate a spiritual crisis in unprepared individuals. How can we use crisis as an opportunity for self transformation and how can we integrate into a better whole?

 

 

16:20 - 17:20 

PANEL: PTSD Solutions and Working with Veterans

About WBAC 

What is WBAC?

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. 

 

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