Between October 2nd and 6th, The Global Ibogaine Therapist Alliance (GITA), hosted its 3rd international conference on iboga and ibogaine research and practice in Vancouver, Canada. This event consisted of 4 days of private meetings for GITA members and one day of public presentations. In addition, several GITA members offered a two-day post-conference training module (October 8th to 9th), the first of its kind, attended by physicians and aspiring lay therapists.
Including our online participants and presenters, attendance included over 80 guests, representing 17 countries on 6 continents. The caliber of the presentations demonstrated a strengthening community of dialogue, and the discussions revealed some clear directions for future efforts.
This report is designed to give a general sense of the content and outcomes of this meeting for our members, partners, and supporters around the world.
