Tools for Bwiti Pre-Initiation

Ryan “Ghenigho” Rich of Root Healing and Steven “Moubengui” Callahan of Iboga Healing are offering Bwiti Iboga Pre-Initiation ceremonies outside of Gabon.

The Bwiti initiation is an ancient ceremony meant to connect you to the Bwiti, nature, the truth, and who you truly are. It is truly an honor to be empowered to offer the Pre-initiation ceremony.”

— Ryan "Ghenigo" Rich

USA, June 30, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Root Healing and Iboga Healing are pleased to share that they will be offering traditional Missoko Bwiti Pre-initiation ceremonies both together and separately depending upon the retreat and location.

Iboga, the Godfather of all plant medicines, is the world’s most powerful healing tool. The Bwiti have been working with Iboga for thousands of years and their Initiation ceremony is one of the most profound life-changing experiences a person can have. Many documentaries, films, and articles have been written about this ritual due to the growing popularity of plant medicine. However, much of this press has been focused on a newer form of Bwiti which has merged with Christianity and French Colonialist beliefs. In reality, most Bwiti had to go into hiding to protect their tradition from the colonialists. We are lucky that today, it is safe for the Missoko Bwiti to share their tradition and offer their powerful healing ceremonies with the world. The Pre-initiation is nearly identical to the Missoko Bwiti Initiation, except full initiations must be done in Gabon. Pre-initiation is a wonderful gift for those who wish to prepare spiritually for the full initiation and those who may not be able to go to Gabon for whatever reason.

“In our modern world, we have separated ourselves from nature and replaced our rituals and traditions from a celebration of nature, truth, and life to one that worships the material and self-generated insecurities. The Bwiti initiation is an ancient ceremony meant to connect you to the Bwiti (study of life itself), nature, the truth, and who you truly are. It is truly an honor to be authorized to offer the Pre-initiation ceremony to people outside of Gabon and be with them during the most profound moment of their lives.”
Ryan “Ghenigho” Rich of Root Healing

“Having performed Bwiti pre-initiations for dozens of people. This is truly a special experience, allowing you to dive deep into personal healing. These ceremonies are designed to break us free from childhood trauma and also face the truth about life. Bwiti initiations offer a deep grounding into yourself and clear the old patterns that hold us back”

Steven “Moubengui” Callahan of Iboga Healing

Both Steven “Moubengui” Callahan and Ryan “Ghenigho” Rich are traditional Missoko Bwiti Iboga Providers trained and empowered by 10th Generation Bwiti Shaman Moughenda. They are currently the only Iboga Providers empowered to do Pre-Initiations.

Steven “Moubengui” Callahan has been working as an Iboga Provider for over 8 years and is one of the most experienced people working with “the medicine” outside of Gabon. He also offers traditional psycho-spiritual retreats via Iboga Healing.

Ryan “Ghenigho” Rich also offers Iboga-Assisted-Detox alongside Moughenda and a medical team via Root Healing. Ryan also serves as a liaison, helping connect people to Moughendas Village for full initiations, Rites of Passage, and Iboga Provider training via Iboga Retreat Center.

HIP Video Promo presents: Saint Dre's "Thinking" music video is what hip-hop dreams are made of

Saint Dre's "Thinking" has stems rooted deep in devotional and Christian music but with the flare and fire of a great hip-hop track.

NASHVILLE, TN, USA, June 30, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — We all have or want something to believe in that’s bigger than ourselves. We want to believe that there’s a higher power that controls everything, from religious beliefs to trusting the vast universe. It gives us peace in difficult times and joy in happy times. That’s something that up-and-coming artist Saint Dre believes in. The Nashville native has become the world’s next greatest Christian singer, completing the ultimate acts of God by sharing His gospel through music. Between his music and his impressive brand, Dre makes sure to keep God at the center of everything he does. Each passing single holds an important lesson of hope and positivity that we can all use a little more of.

“Thinking” is what hip-hop track dreams are made of: it’s upbeat with some of the sickest rhymes you’ll ever hear. The song is jam-packed with dream-like piano chords and the sharp beats of the trap drums. It has stems rooted deep in devotional and Christian music but with the flare and fire of a great hip-hop track. The lyrics play out like a constant reminder for Saint Dre of the confidence he feels and has through his unwavering relationship with his religion. When he raps the words out, it’s never cocky or self-involved; instead, it’s about being reassured about who he is. He uses this song and the other tracks on Faith Over Fear to remind others to be hopeful and to help them feel as peaceful as he does.

The video for “Thinking” is simple in its appearance and makes a mighty impact. It opens up with the beautiful skyline of Nashville in slow sweeping angels. From there, it’s to the city streets where we see Saint Dre laying down his tracks in front of a vibrantly spray-painted wall. Backing him up is an impressive-looking Chevrolet and the city of Nashville itself later on in the video. In between the performance shots, we see a group of dancers standing in front of even more fancy cars as they drop their sickest moves. Each member of the dance crew is decked out in their bright red “Faith Over Fear” hoodies. The video ends with Dre surrounded by the people he loves the most and their beautiful smiling faces.

Bridge Publications and City of Commerce Community and Business Leaders Reach Out to Seniors With a Special Surprise

An unexpected visit to a City of Industry senior complex this spring brightened the day of those on both the giving and receiving end.

LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, June 29, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Many lives have been turned upside down by COVID-19, says Camila Gonzalez, public affairs director for Bridge Publications, the all-digital print-on-demand publishing house of author L. Ron Hubbard’s nonfiction works. Bridge wanted to do something special for the community and she reached out to local civic leaders as the city was beginning to reopen to find out what project they would like to get behind. Councilman Hugo Argumedo answered immediately—something that will help the seniors. Many older people lack resources or families to look after them.

“This gave us the idea of how we could help in more than one way,” says Gonzalez. She and the other staff at Bridge had already been brainstorming about doing something for nearby Tamayo Restaurant and Art Gallery. Any other time, Tamayo’s would be brimming with customers enjoying their cuisine and ambiance.” But this was before restrictions lifted, and a year of COVID protocols has been very hard on the restaurant industry, trying to survive by providing takeout alone followed by indoor dining at reduced capacity.

Bridge raised the funds to provide a Tamayo lunch to 93 residents of the Rosewood Park Senior Apartment Complex and with the help of restaurant president Humberto Veloso selected the menu and worked out the planning.

Councilman Argumedo pulled together a team of volunteers to deliver the lunches, including his wife Jessa, who also arranged for a truck to come to the restaurant and pick everything up.

Pauline Rodriguez, manager of the Rosewood Senior Apartment Complex, confirmed the time and date and made arrangements to oversee the entire affair.

“I want to thank Bridge Publications for the wonderful opportunity to ensure our seniors had a nice visit and lunch,” said Jessa Argumedo. “The smiles on the seniors’ faces showed how thankful they were.”

“I think all of us as a team pulled together something very good,” said another volunteer. “The seniors are lonely. They were grateful for the thoughtfulness—for someone thinking about them. Delivering the luncheon didn’t feel like work. It was fun.”

One of the residents, suspicious at first when the volunteer came to her door, could hardly believe the meal she was being offered wasn’t a mistake. When the volunteer assured her it was for her, she stayed outside her apartment enjoying the weather and watching the volunteers go from door to door with their packages.

“One of the best moments in this whole activity was seeing Tamayo’s Humberto Veloso’s surprise when we presented him with a $1,000 donation to show our appreciation for their help on the project and to support them in these challenging times,” said Gonzalez.

“You helped from your heart,” said Veloso, “and we were able to help you do so. It not only helped our business after a year of struggle, but it also gave us all something to be part of that made a difference.”

Located at 5600 E. Olympic Boulevard in Commerce, Bridge Publications is the world's largest all-digital, print-on-demand facility. Bridge is a winner of the Manufacturing Leadership 100 awards for 2021 and 11 previous years and has been listed on the ML100 Creators Respond Honor Roll for their work in response to the pandemic.

Author Teresa Shields Parker Reveals How Breaking Strongholds Led to 250 Pound Weight Loss

“Sweet Surrender: Breaking Strongholds,” by Teresa Shields Parker (Write the Vision)

Author Teresa Shields Parker

The new book, "Sweet Surrender: Breaking Strongholds," pulls back the curtain on some of the reasons we run to food and other addictions first instead of God.

These are the culprits that helped me gain up to 430 pounds and kept me there for many years.”

— Teresa Shields Parker

COLUMBIA, MO, USA, June 29, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — In the new book, "Sweet Surrender: Breaking Strongholds," author Teresa Shields Parker pulls back the curtain on some of the reasons we run to food and other addictions first instead of God. The six-time author, who has lost 250 pounds and kept it off since 2013, says the simple answer is that we have strongholds that are directing our lives.

“We cannot break strongholds on our own,” says Parker. “We must surrender our addictions to God and allow Him to show us how to break those stubborn mindsets which we have allowed to govern everything we do.”

Parker’s study revealed the reasons that cause us to use certain things like sugar-laden foods to manage our emotions are really mindsets, which become strongholds and then lead us to become entangled in various addictions. The addictions aren’t the strongholds; though. It’s the lies we believe.

“When we start to believe half-truths, they grow into lies and eventually morph into strongholds that keep us from the destiny God has for us,” says Parker. “We all have times when we believe things like I don't matter, I'm not valued, I can't go on, I am a failure, God can't use me and so much more. These are strongholds that God wants to eradicate.”

In her new book, each of the 14 chapters examines a different stronghold she encountered on her journey. “These are the culprits that helped me gain up to 430 pounds and kept me there for many years,” says Parker. “Embracing what seemed like God’s mysterious, and sometimes hidden truths, helped set me free to follow Him completely.”

This issue-focused memoir is relevant to any life-controlling issue we have including difficulties with relationships, careers, shame, anger, food, money, alcohol, drugs, pornography, overspending and so much more.

Included in the book are action steps and questions to help readers learn the source of their strongholds and how to work with God to break them.

"Sweet Surrender: Breaking Strongholds" is published by Write the Vision, and is available now at Amazon in print, kindle and audible editions.

About the Author: Teresa Shields Parker, author, coach and podcaster, lives in Columbia, MO, with her husband. They have two grown children and have been foster parents to 10 behaviorally challenged teens and young adults. She has written six books and two study guides.

Prominent Religious Researchers Discuss COVID’s Impact on Gender Equality Worldwide

Impact of COVID-19 on Women

Impact of COVID-19 on Women

How the pandemic affected women as a vulnerable sector of the population is a critical issue that needs to be discussed as nations begin the healing process.

We need to bring to the discussion how the pandemic affected women as a vulnerable sector of the population, but also how gender equality is crucial in the post-pandemic scenario.”

— Dr. Sofia Caseiro

WASHINGTON, D.C., UNITED STATES, June 28, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — The G20 Interfaith Forum, the world’s leading organization focused on the intersection of faith and policy, is gathering religious experts from the humanitarian and research sectors to discuss COVID-19’s global impact on women at a gender equality webinar.

The virtual meeting will take place on July 1, 2021 from noon to 1 pm EDT, focusing on how women have been negatively affected by COVID-19 and analyzing religion’s role in promoting gender equality. Register for the free webinar at https://us02web.zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_RTm1QNaVRVaVIDJ2OJ4WHQ

In the 2017 Beirut Declaration, which enhanced the role of religions in promoting human rights, faith and civil society actors pledged together to “ensure non-discrimination and gender equality” in their efforts.

A UN study shows that in 2020, global gender equality experienced a 25-year setback. According to data, women saw their workload increase through remote work, household work and increased child care responsibilities as schools and day-cares closed their doors. Violence against women also increased; women were trapped in isolation with perpetrators and left with limited contact to reach for help from already-overburdened support systems in the outside world. The pandemic increased women’s vulnerability economically, socially, physically and psychologically.

As religious organizations and faith-based groups are woven inseparably into the fabric of every community, the G20 Interfaith Forum declares that the voices, perspectives, and support of religious actors are essential to any effort in building a more inclusive, peaceful, and equal society.

Sofia Caseiro, head of the G20 Interfaith Working Group on Gender Equality, said the discussion will be essential to the group’s efforts to develop policy recommendations for the G20 this fall.

“This topic is essential as we move forward as a society. We need to bring to the discussion how the pandemic affected women as a vulnerable sector of the population, but also how gender equality is crucial in the post-pandemic scenario,” Caseiro said. “We need expertise that is based on both experience and research, and the women speaking at this event are uniquely suited to provide that expertise.”

The webinar’s guest speakers occupy prominent positions in their respective religious and academic communities.

Sadhvi Bhagawati Saraswatiji, Secretary-General of the Global Interfaith WASH Alliance (an international organization dedicated to clean water, sanitation and hygiene) and President of the Divine Shakti Foundation, is well-known throughout India and the world for her work with humanitarian causes, sustainable development and women’s empowerment. She serves on the UN Faith Advisory Council on Religion, and has been featured on CNN, NY Times, BBC, NPR and more.

Dr. Olivia Wilkinson directs the research of the Joint Learning Initiative on Faith and Local Communities (JLI), focusing on the role of faith actors in the humanitarian and development sectors. Since early 2020, she has assisted with the “Religious Responses to COVID-19” database project, which looks closely at how the pandemic has affected (and been affected by) religious actors and vulnerable communities, including women.

About the G20 Process

The Group of Twenty, or G20, is the premier forum for international economic cooperation,
bringing together the leaders of Earth’s most prosperous economies. Collectively, G20
members represent around 80 percent of the world’s economic output, two-thirds of the
global population and three-quarters of international trade. Throughout the year,
representatives from G20 countries gather to discuss financial and socioeconomic issues as
well as broader humanitarian issues targeted by the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals.
