How Iboga Heals Eating Disorders with Karen O’Neel

Our guest is Karen Oneel, who credits her full recovery from a decades-long struggle with severe bulimia to Iboga. She now works at the Serenity Beach Center in Mexico, assisting other people with using this plant medicine to overcome addiction and eating disorders. She is passionate about removing the stigma around bulimia as well so that people can feel more comfortable discussing their struggles and ultimately discover this cure.

In this fascinating episode:

* Karen talks about her iboga journey and the fascinating visions and insights she received that cured her of bulimia during life-changing plant medicine work

* We delve into, who is this grandfather iboga plant spirit and what are its teachings?

* We explore some interesting theories on eating disorders and addiction: Tara suggests that perhaps drug addictions result from distorted attempts to receive healing from plant medicine in adulterated form and that overeating might really be a way of putting more Earth energy into our bodies so we can nurture ourselves, while the purging of bulimia is similar to the emetic action of some healing plants — could these be attempts at healing?

* Karen talks about what she has witnessed at the clinic she works at in Mexico and shares that iboga’s success rate in treating drug addiction is 60% (compared to 5% in 12 step groups)!

* Karen explains integration and aftercare and talks about what is required to maintain a transformation after iboga ceremony

The Toad: 5 MEO DMT with Joel Brierre

Discussed in this episode:

* What is a "full release" on toad medicine and what does it feel like?


* Who should NOT work with the toad?

* What role is the toad playing in the expansion of the Universe?

* What are some safety issues coming up with facilitators?

* How can yogic philosophy help people integrate peak experiences?

Our guest is Joël Karamdeep Singh Brierre began his relationship with psychedelics as a teenager in an exploratory manner. Marveling at the chance to explore the unexplored, Joël began training with Curanderos in Peru in 2001 where he further pursued these heightened states of awareness. Eventually shifting his focus into a deep and devoted yoga practice, he began teaching yoga and meditation and soon moved on to India to study in an ashram setting in Rishikesh. From there he traveled all around the world, soaking up knowledge and sharing what he’d learned. He was reintroduced to plant medicine in 2009 while living in the Caribbean, and began to incorporate it into his yoga practice. Joël took on various mentors in the medicine world, learning all he could about holding sacred space, and safe practices. With this combination of knowledge, Joël now leads retreats and workshops around the world on the plant medicine and yoga connection.

With over 10 years of teaching and multiple teacher trainings, Joël is certified at 500 ERYT. Joël works with the venom of the Bufo Alvarius toad, which contains the compound 5-MeO-DMT as well as working with the pure molecule itself. This compound is said to be the most powerful entheogen on the planet, allowing participants to experience a non-dual state of awareness in which they cease to view reality as an individual and are completely absorbed into the infinite. Joël believes the toad medicine’s effect of a non-dual experience is congruent with the Samadhi states that can be attained through yoga. He assists individuals through pre and post integration using a program he has derived from the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali.
