“Play is the highest form of research.” Albert Einstein
“This is the real secret of life is to be completely engaged with what you are doing in the here and now. And instead of calling it work, realize it is play.” Alan Watts

Our mission includes helping people access joy.
This involves rebuilding the pleasures system and relearning how to play. It can start to seem that at some point life became work and work became a habit. Dependencies can also become a lot of work to maintain. An overabundance of work without balance in less serious sources of excitement can result in an inability to find deep experiences of gratitude, joy and pleasure from life.
When you don’t feel pleasure, there are whole networks of neurons in your body that aren’t being cared for. Ibogaine can help to do a substantial amount of brain repair by loosening up rigidity in behaviors and moods and gives an opportunity to deeply restructure your life.
Learning how to play has been shown to bring a plethora of benefits, including decreased rates of depression.1
