Don Lucio is one of the greatest men I’ve met. He has a wealth of knowledge and is revered by all that know him and work for him. The ceremonies are incredible… other worldly. The icaros (chanting) and attention given to each participant is enough to bring you to tears.
There are two other shamans, Anderson and Luis Jr who are also exceptional and staged a ceremony when do Lucio couldn’t attend for health reasons.
It isn’t as strict a diet as many of the other retreats and the food is incredibly healthy, nutritious and tasty.
Contrary to many of the other retreats, don Lucio and his team brew the ayahuasca in the true form and do not cater for the ‘tourist’ crowd. According to some sources, other retreats add things like angels trumpet which can be lethal in order for the participant to have an even more crazy trip which is unnecessary and can be dangerous.
The love and care that you experience here is second to none and I have no hesitation in highly recommending this retreat. It helped me a lot.
