Sayulita 2009

The first International Ibogaine Providers and Facilitators Conference was held in Sayulita, Mexico between March 21st and March 25th, 2009. Presentations were shared by many foundational figures in the ibogaine field, in the honour of the late Howard Lotsof. The conference recognized the need for more dialogue amongst providers, as well as the need for standards of care, ethics, and patient rights to be developed. Building on years of previous work, these discussions laid much of the foundation for GITA’s incorporation.
