The Origin organizes ceremonies in the Netherlands & journeys to Gabon, Colombia and the Sinaï desert in collaboration with different indigenous communities (i.e. Bwete, Gabon, Grupo Palchucán Putumayo Colombia and Live the Bedouin Life Sinai tribes.)

Celine Reliba, Bokayé, and their international team are carrying out their mission to make the ancient knowledge of indigenous tribes available and taking you back to your origin by opening doors to deep introspection.

This work provides an opportunity to address the root cause of your issues, to heal and profoundly transform the source of blockages, hidden pain, survival mechanisms and belief systems that no longer serve you.

The Origin’s main goal is to be of service to the indigenous tribes and to guide through their teachings, by serving as a safe anchor for all participants of the ceremonies.
If you would like to participate in one of our ceremonies or journeys and

The Origin Iboga ceremonies are created with love and respect to support you on your journey of spiritual and personal (growth) development.  The sacred plant medicine helps you to break with karma and free yourself from negative thoughts, addictive behaviors, family trauma, patterns and habits (for example, substance use, eating disorders and otherphysical ailments) holding you back from living your best potential life. The medicine supports you to reconnect your body and soul in the daily life. Iboga has the unique quality to remind you of your natural state of Being and brings you to a state of higher consciousness.
