Journey guided by The Bwiti

Bwiti is a spiritual philosophy of introspection and self-discovery, not a religion. Journeyers to Gabon will experience an authentic initiation, serving to help break through into an uncharted new phase of life and shed aspects of what no longer serves them. Participants report that this experience marks the beginning of a huge shift in their lives.
