the meaning of our name
Icaro (cuechua: ikaro) is a south american indigenous colloquialism for magic song carrying an intention. today this term is commonly used to describe the medicine songs performed in vegetal cermonies, especially by shamans to induce a profound state of healing, awareness and protection. we chose this name as an intention to share awareness of healthy wholefoods to heal our bodies, incorporate sustainable initiatives and be a space where community feels welcome and at home sharing in conversations and discussions to create positive changes.
