A Symphony of Movement with IKSRE and Maydn: Sound & Spinal Energetics.
Fri Feb 03 2023 at 06:30 pm to 08:30 pm
Centre of You | Melbourne, VI
About this Event
Spinal Energetics is a process of unwinding and detangling layers of your life experience, trauma and unprocessed emotions that become stagnant and stored in your body. The process unravels tension in your spine and nervous system. Easing physical symptoms/pain-reducing emotional stress, clearing your energy field and releasing trauma stored in your body.
This incredibly special event will see sound alchemist IKSRE (Phoebe Dubar) + movement and spinal energetics practitioner Maydn (Ghislain) guide you through an immersive energetic experience, interweaving deeply emotive, textural music with gentle movement, breathwork and spinal energetics. A movement of symphony is a pathway to and through yourself.
While being bathed in IKSRE’s live, looped vocals, strings and synths, backed up by the deeply healing sounds of the natural world, Ghislain will guide you through a gentle movement practice, releasing any tension in your body, before anchoring you in stillness and the depths of a breathwork experience, connecting you with your inner landscape. You will be guided through your body, interlacing with your energetic bodies, as you arrive into a state of deep rest + relaxation, to receive spinal energetics healing, as bound energy is released to leave you feeling renewed.
About your facilitators:

A Mindful movement who are committed to helping people create moments of stillness and connection in their lives. Ghislain understands the impact of trauma, after healing + transforming her own life, she is deeply passionate about facilitating experiences that allow people to move through and release what is no longer serving them so they can connect to their internal truth and compass.
IKSRE is Naarm/Melbourne-based multi-instrumentalist, vocalist, producer and sound healer, Phoebe Dubar. She combines field recordings from her beloved Australian bush with lush strings, swirling synths and vocals with ambient drone and binaural beats to create a unique sound which sits somewhere between the yoga studio and the after-party. You may be familiar with her sound baths, but this will be an entirely different experience, as she delivers her original music, completely live.
“Her sound palette lies at the delicate intersection of the natural world in fissure with atmospheric electronics and instruments. Much like Philip Glass or Ryuichi Sakamoto, Dubar’s way with a subtle shift into an irregular rhythm, a harmonic modulation or change in articulation, tricks the listener into a trance. IKSRE is seriously slept on - it's time to wake up.” The Wire Magazine
Things to note:
Centre of You has plenty of bolsters, blankets, and cushions for you to get cosy with though feel free to bring any personal items that may afford you a sense of greater comfort and familiarity.
You will be invited to sit/lay upon the floor so loose clothing that enables easeful, light movement and deep breathing will serve you most supportively. There are chairs available should you need or desire one.
Arrival: Endeavour to arrive by 6:15pm to allow enough time to visit the bathroom and settle in. To preserve the experience for all involved, doors will close 15 minutes after commencement. Truly, it breaks our heart to have to turn latecomers away yet the disruption to the whole group experience by virtue of lateness does require management. We ask that you find understanding and consideration for the timebound nature of the container and make every effort to arrive on time.
