I went to Kapitari in November 2017. It was one of the best weeks of my life. I was very scared to go there as I am not a drinker or drug taker, but I accompanied a friend who suffers from PTSD, and having exhausted all options in America, was seeking treatment there. I am so incredibly happy I went to the retreat. It has changed my life, in all positive ways. The center felt like a place of acceptance, love and hope. I met the most incredible people from all over the world whom I have kept in touch with. I never saw anybody with a positive attitude and an open heart have a bad experience. I felt Don Lucho was very intelligent and experienced, and felt that he cared about each of our wellbeing. He truly helped my friend. With that said, the retreat is far from medical help. They aren’t Western medical doctors. I feel that there is a certain amount of danger in any sort of trip thousands
of miles away from home but the fact that hope is offered to people with severe PTSD and crippling drug addiction may be worth that risk.
I myself plan on returning again this November.
