Where is the 50 stars button for the 5-MeO-DMT flashlight!? 5 stars doesn’t begin to give worthiness to this retreat centre and it’s AHmazing full service owners/facilitators!

I’ve NEVER felt so much love, kindness, non-judgemental, massive compassion, trust & supportive therapeutic intentions, actions and energy from anywhere for me to have a safe space to just let  it all out and get my healing!

For YEARS I went from therapist to therapist making my half joke in our first session, “Do you have the magic wand?” I know their answer would always be “no” or “that doesn’t exist.” But something very deep in side me ‘knew’ that there was one and that one day, I would find it. Well… I ‘asked’ and I ‘received.’

My first 3 solo retreats were literally like having 8 years of traditional talk therapy in one 8+ hour 5-MeO-DMT session with Inner Realms! Like, I totally FOUND my magic wand right here. I kid you not. So much so that I’m a regular as much as I’m able now!

This is not “fast therapy” per se asI still have to put in “the work” but comparatively, its the fastest that I’ve every experienced and trust me… I’ve done and taken a lot to make that calculation.

I so knew there was a magic wand out there somewhere, so to speak, and I will be ever so grateful to Inner Realms Center for giving me back a life quite literally worth living.

Inner Realms’ 5-MeO-DMT journey is the flashlight to take into your shadows… making way for healing of a massive depth one can only imagine.

Forever Thank-Full for my new found freedom!

My experience during my Ibogaine treatment was exceptional and well coordinated. I was made to feel extremely comfortable so my transition into the introspective world of Ibogaine was smooth. Any question was answered and every need was met with compassion and love.

My psycho spiritual and addiction healing journey was worth every penny since I no longer crave like I used to, with a black hole to feed every single day. Freedom is something everybody needs from their demons and this was the catalyst in my case.

InnerRealms facilitated a great transformation in my life. When I was at my very worst, they helped me turn my life around.

With the help of Garyth’s knowledge of the medicine and life time of experience, along with Blair’s incredible ability to relate to others in a kind and nurturing way, I was able to change internally, on a deep level.

Opiates had been a problem for me my entire adult life. From age 19 to age 37, on and off for 18 years, but mainly on. I had never been clean for longer than 12 months. I had tried many different methods of quitting from going cold turkey on my own, detox, methadone, 12 steps, moving to different cities and even Rapid Opiate Detox surgery

I came to Inner Realms with an addiction to grams of pure heroin a day habit for many years. I was nervous at first but right from the second I arrived, I knew I was in great hands. I was even given medication right away so I could stay comfortable the whole time.

Garyth and Blair are both extremely knowledgeable and caring, and they saved my life.

When I found out about ibogaine and the use of it became very urgent for me to get into center as soon as possible.

I talked to 2 other ibogaine providers before Garyth. None of them felt my urgency as much as he did.

And I was on the flight to Vancouver from New York with a heavy and obsessive heroin addiction.

When I first decided to seek Ibogaine treatment, a friend of mine who had been through treatment herself had just 3 words for me: “Get to Garyth.”

She told me that he was really the best provider around, and my experience in treatment showed me the value of her advice.

Inner Realms is a small, client-centric Ibogaine center run by Garyth and Blair. Over the course of several weeks, they weaned me slowly off a 10+ year methadone addiction and provided the kindest, most loving care and treatment.

They were attentive to my every physical, spiritual, psychosocial and emotional need, and made me feel both safe and welcome at Inner Realms.
