    Bwiti: an ethnography of the religious imagination in Africa by James W. Fernandez (Professor of Anthropology at Princeton University)

    The name of this instrument is Ngombi Harp. To quote from the book:

    "...it is the ngombi harp which, above all, symbolizes the microcosm and the macrocosm of Bwiti life. It represents the body directly. The hole below is the birth hole; the two holes above are the breast holes from whence comes the nurturance of Nyingwan Mebege [the female principle of the universe and Goddess of the Night]. Very often the entire harp, particularly if it carries a sculpted head post represents Nyingwan Mebege herself. The support post is her backbone, the keys her ribs, the strings her sinews, the sounding box her stomach. During the engosie [the all-night ceremony] her voice comes into the harp and speaks, in musical mode, to the membership."

    (not my picture, found a good one on the web almost identical to my own harp)

    So then it makes sense that they place the harp on the third eye, on the spine and chest and play at the break of dawn during the ceremony (the engosie)... to channel the Goddess of the Night into the initiated persons soul... as I said before it was quite a rush when they did this!

    That is very kool Dev.

    Very fascinating also. I very much enjoy your report threads.

    One fatal tree there stands of knowledge called, forbidden them to taste. Knowledge forbidden? Suspicious. Reasonless. And why should their Lord envy them that? Can it be sin to know? Can it be death? And do they stand by ignorance, is that their happy state, the proof of their obedience and their faith?

But they, indigenous shamans, have been doing this for thousands of years... what the fuck do we gringos know? LOL!

    Btw I bought one of those harps... after the experience I have been obsessed with it... it enchanted me you could say, and gave me new visions of music I had not considered before (but nothing I can put into words).

    i play the didgeridoo on people... it's an awesome experience.
    thanks for sharing your experience dev.

    I can didge it.

    Basse people, I am only sharing direct experiences. The best source of knowledge, just like those threads we have of lab work with pictures. The armchair scholar approach will only get you started, I doubt it will carry you all the way. IMO.

    Even the information from the Fernandez book about the harp was verified on site and the author was correct because he stayed in Gabon for a long time. But a lot of sources come from books only and are highly suspicious. Always go see for yourself, sometimes this requires you go all the way to Africa and other times just out into your garden to get herbs for lab work.

    I have always had a strong connection to animals. There was a black dog where we were in Gabon that had lost all her pups giving birth. She was a very sad looking dog. Just a day or two before the ceremony I came across this dog at night. I looked at it. I SAW it... and I told it that it did not need to be sad anymore. Then I gave it a hug. After this the dog did not look sad anymore. It seemed no one had bothered to heal it.

    I have had such events before in my life, maybe I can heal animals? Last night I had a dream. There was an angry dog. I was warned not to pet it. But I did anyway. I curled up with the dog. I held its head singing Icaros to it. It was not dangerous anymore.

    I tell this because it is part of the Iboga experience, aftershocks that can last for months and years. Sometimes when I am in a dark mood I close my eyes and I can almost see visions. Like an Iboga-echo telling me to not submit to darkness. There is nothing there of value. Again the only stress is death, so get busy living!

    Found this vid,

    Joe Rogan talks about IBOGA TRIP!!!
    Iboga treatment vs. DMT



    I have to say I haven't got to a place I can talk about yet...maybe I never will, its all a
    bit personal, however this guy's story is pretty cool, but be aware you may not like
    what you find!

    I found DMT was easy IBOGA was a challenge...for me that is

    Nice... although as always negative. Imagine if every car article mentioned car accidents and number of deaths.
