– Maestro Arturo sings Shipibo Icaro to elevate energy-
In many Amazonian medicine traditions, Icaros or healing songs are learned melodies passed down from generation to generation and sung by curanderos for different healing and protection purposes according to the ceremonial needs of the moment. For example in the Quechua tradition there are many beautiful melodies that inspire connection with animal and elemental spirits and with divine states of consciousness, that may be shared and learned by all.
In contrast, Icaros in the Shipibo tradition are unique blessings “received” by the maestros from the spirit of the medicine of Ayahuasca and other master plant spirits, that the maestro has “Dieted” with over many years of long, slow and arduous spiritual learning and advancement.
These special gifts of melody and poetry spring from deep spiritual connections forged between the curandero and the plant spirits, and become the sacred tools by which the maestro heals and transmits his/her power and knowledge to the patient’s body, mind and spirit. Knowledge that is often attained through many years of painful struggle, tears and finally courageous triumph over the challenges along this warrior’s path, to achieve the high levels of wisdom, love, compassion and immense technical skill required for true healing capability.
For these reasons, we express our deep gratitude to some of our maestros and maestras for sharing these short previews of their medicine, and we ask that you respect the precious nature of these offerings, and do not copy or distribute them in whole or part without written permission from Caya Shobo Healing Centre.

I was in Caya Shobo in last December 2021, this was a very deep experience. Entering the subtil consciousness of the healing master plants , feeling the peace coming inside my heart, and feeling the guidance of their wisdom. Receiving “Madre Ayauasca” , then receiving Icaros from Maestro Arturo, Maestro Pedro and Maestro Walter was a benediction and a sacred journey through different patterns to shift. The intelligence of the plant is amazing . The vision and healing transformation power of Maestros magnificent too. The Spirit of Ayauasca and master plants knows what is to heal, much more than our own spirit . Their level of consciousness is so amazingly and highly linked to unconditional love and life energy, that the healing process is on, eventhough we don’t see, don’t understand or do not have words for it . The Maestros are enhancing the process through their divine Icaros , singing to our soul. The healing process is maturing at different levels of our being , and lives . This ancient knowledge is a treasure . I wish I will encounter other amazonian master healing plants, and diet for longer time in the future . This connection to the plant is something that connect us to pure LIFE ENERGY , and we wish to continue the journey , once we are back . Thank you to all Caya Shobo team to allow it to exist now , and to go on with sessions . I am coming back from there , full of Love and Gratitude . And I will come back to Caya Shobo . Thank you also to be the keepers of this tradition , and to offer it in a very safe and secured way . I appreciated that retreat so Much !!
