Kaya Bloom is a sacred abode, a place for everyone to flourish
The word Kaya has many meanings in various cultures and languages, it has a different meaning in Sanskrit, Japanese, Armenian, and Scandinavian among others.
The meaning, which inspired us here at Kaya Bloom, comes from the sacred place of the Mijikenda people in Kenya. To them, Kaya is a sacred forest, with the literal meaning of “home”.
