Bette Corsan

About The Teacher

Bette Corsan is a Medicine Elder in the Bwiti Tradition of Iboga Tabernanthe Medicine. She trained with a 10th generation African Shaman and learned how to safely guide people to experience the medicine and themselves in a way they never have before. The experience of raising and home-schooling a family of 6 children gave her clear insights into the developmental and creative potential we possess. She taught marine and eco-system education from K – Gr. 12, as a volunteer. She worked as an archival researcher for 5 yrs., and a professional artist for 9 years.

Her passion for the last 7 1/2 years has been to help people to heal themselves with Iboga. In 2017, she was a speaker at the European Iboga Forum in Vienna. Her talk was aimed at bridging the gap between the medical and traditional models of treatment. None of this would be possible without the support of loving communities, so she is here in Nelson to give a safe and insightful introduction of the medicine to women who may not otherwise have the opportunity to connect with this medicine.

      Opiate/Fentanyl Addiction

    I want to thank Bette for all she’s done. I am almost three years clean and sober. My addiction killed me multiple times. I tried every potential remedy, including various treatment facilities. Sobriety would only last a couple months, and then I would fall back into my old ways. A friend suggested I contact Bette. I was skeptical at first, due to my lack of knowledge. There was a limited amount of information found online regarding Iboga. Within five days I was fully recovered. I was waiting for the withdrawals, but they never arrived. It blew my mind. Coming from a six year intravenous user. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions regarding my experience.
