Welcome to MEYAYA MEYAYA : The first French site dedicated to Eboga


- the ancient, perennial religion of Eboga,
- initiation into the religion for people of both sexes and all ages through taking Tabernathe iboga,
- the development of a treatment methodology by experienced practitioners,
to guarantee a maximum of safety whilst taking Eboga,
remembering that what is good for indigenous populations is not necessarily good for all peoples.........
For many years, both Europeans and Africans taking Eboga have realised that the Bwiti religion, whether Mitsogho or Fang, deals with the healing of the spirit. And, as such, constantly re-adapts it's powers to the mythologies and archetypes of whatever culture uses it. And that in Europe we have lost this type of knowledge, to our great detriment, sometime during the years of the Inquisition, or perhaps at the hands of the Carthans.
It's in this spirit that in 1995 we began to look at, with the help of the Cameroon Bwiti, the possibility of adapting the essence of the Eboga experience, that it might be brought into more widespread usage amongst the peoples of the West. In doing this, we drew heavily on the experience and knowledge of the artists and intellectuals of the Cameroon, to ensure our work would be free of ethnocentric limitations.
>From then on, we have worked closely with a Cameroon Bwiti chapel, agreeing that our objective should be to take inspiration from the initiation ritual. But, in order that the

Features of Africa
Africa is the second-largest continent , after Asia, covering 30,330,000 sq km; about 22% of the total land area of the Earth. It measures about 8,000 km from north to south and about 7,360 km from east to west. The highest point on the continent is Mt. Kilimanjaro - Uhuru Point - (5,963 m/19,340 ft) in Tanzania. The lowest is Lake 'Asal (153 m/502 ft below sea level) in Djibouti. The Forests cover about one-fifth of the total land area of the continent.
The Woodlands, bush lands, grasslands and thickets occupy about two-fifth.
And the Deserts and their extended margins have the remaining two-fifths of African land. World's longest river : The River Nile drains north-eastern Africa, and, at 6,650 km (4,132 mi), is the longest river in the world. It is formed from the Blue Nile, which originates at Lake Tana in Ethiopia, and the White Nile, which originates at Lake Victoria. World's second largest lake : Lake Victoria is the largest lake in Africa and the is the world's second-largest freshwater lake - covering an area of 69,490 sq km (26,830 sq mi) and lies 1,130 m (3,720 ft) above sea level. Its greatest known depth is 82 m (270 ft).

A frican art - Ceremonial sculpture masks , and crafts produced by African tribal cultures , as well as by the African cultures of colonial and post-colonial periods. Generally African art means sub-Saharan art, with the cultures of Africa's northern parts typically referred to as Egyptian and North African. Making generalizations about the visual culture of any group of people is a crude endeavor, especially with a culture as diverse as Africa's. With this thought in mind, know that this survey, as any must be, is tremendously limited in its breadth and depth.

Harvard Gay and Lesbian Review , Fall 1995.
(published here with permission) We will never know if Lucy was a lesbian. The discovery of the famous skeleton in Ethiopia in 1974 by Dr. Richard Leaky was the clearest proof to date of human evolution beginning on the African continent. Carbon dating revealed that Lucy lived some 3 to 3.7 million years ago. Yet, whether she ever lusted after other female Australopithecines is a secret that will remain hers for eternity. Lucy is not the only one with secrets. The recorded knowledge of sexuality in African societies is far from encyclopedic. Little more than anecdotal attention has been paid to departures from procreative sexual practices in traditional cultures. The issue of individual desires rarely makes it into a body of anthropological literature dominated by analysis of the collective. At best, homosexuality is allocated little more than a footnote to any discussion of sexuality in Africa. If anthropologists and other researchers needed an excuse to avoid the subject, they've only had to point to widespread denial of homosexual practices by Africans themselves. Homosexuality is often thrown on to the pile of unwanted debris and issues, such as consumerism, attributed to the legacy of European and Arab colonialism.

In working with indigenous knowledge for sustainable development, researchers and practitioners should be aware of the gender aspect that runs through all the problems they are trying to solve. This is perhaps best done by adopting a conceptual framework right from the start. Such gender-analysis frameworks or methodologies are a combination of related concepts and selected observation tools. A classic framework is the Harvard Analytical Frame. It focuses on women's/men's activities and their access to and control over material resources and benefits, thus providing a clear picture of gender divisions in labour. Other frameworks have been developed to meet the more practical, strategic or political needs of users or policy planners. A guide to gender-analysis frameworks explores some of the best-known analytical frameworks for gender-sensitive research and planning. Based on a pack developed for Oxfam staff and partners in 1996, it was written by an experienced gender development project officer, together with gender advisers. The editors have incorporated into this edition feedback from Oxfam staff, consultants, and individuals.
