Kapitari Retreat: September 8th-14th 2013
My experience at Kapitari was wonderful. I was the only woman out of a group of 14 and felt right at home with Don Lucho and his family. Mamacita and the ladies cooked delicious food for us everyday and took special care in preparing "dieta" meals for all including a few vegetarians in the group. Don Lucho and Mamacita were also very helpful in advising specific plant medicines for chronic ailments and general well being. Tambo #4 was lovely. Thank you Mamacita for suggesting the lady of the group to stay there. : )
We were very fortunate to have Don Lucho, his son and Grandpa all present our first ceremony. Their icaros were magical and soothing. I highly recommend the walk to see Don Lucho's farm land. His work is so important to the conservation and sustainability of the Manacamiri region. Many thanks also go out to our facilitators and thanks to everyone at Kapitari for your care and hospitality. I highly recommend this retreat to all, but especially to those who are first timers with the jungle medicine. You will have a safe and comfortable experience there.
