ICBRKR EXTRAORDINAIRES: Meet Isis Indriya, Ritualist, Visionary and Event Producer
Welcome to our ICBRKR Extraordinaires Series, where we periodically highlight one extraordinary ICBRKR. Our community is our backbone, and we’re proud to bring together such a passionate and engaging group of people. ICBRKR: MEET YOUR GLOBAL COMMUNITY. ⚡️
Today, we introduce you to Global Explorer, Music Lover, and Wellness Advocate, Isis Indriya. This inspiring and accomplished woman co-founded Living Village Culture, a collective of educators and creatives dedicated to bridging art, immersive experiences, and activism through event production, education, retreats, and ceremonies. We’re big fans of the spiritual events she creates, and we hope to be able to attend them again soon!
Isis, you embody the spirit and community we strive for at ICBRKR. Can you tell us more about your background and what you do exactly?
I have been an event producer since 2001, and for the last 8 years, I have been co-curating the education, wellness, rituals, and intentional content for DoLab’s Lightning in a Bottle festival, along with my collaborator, Eve Bradford. We have our own area within the festival called The Compass that includes art, education, and music.
What inspired you to do what you do?
I am native Chamorro and was raised on the island of Guam. We are a very community-based culture, and in some way, I have always done my best to independently recreate this kind of community in a modern day America. When I first experienced the rave culture dance floor in the mid 90s, I not only had a deeply profound, transcendent experience, but I also felt a sense of community in the U.S. That’s what led me into event production.
You also organize an amazing experience in Egypt every year. What’s the story there?
Ancient cultures and civilizations have fascinated me my entire life. While studying Transpersonal Psychology & Stargates in the late 90s, I ended up following my teacher to Egypt for a 3-week initiation journey. That trip introduced me to Egyptian Cosmology and I now facilitate regular 2.5 week-journeys to the Sacred Lands. I work with a dear friend and Egyptian guide, Mahmoud Khodeir.
What do you like most about ICBRKR?
I enjoy ICBRKR’s community aspect and the cross-pollinating nature of those that align here. It is incredible how widespread ICBRKR is, and the Web of Relations gathered here is impressive.
What is your favorite city and why?
It's a tie between Marrakech and Istanbul. Both evoke a multi-sensory experience for me with the scents, music, food, aesthetics, art, culture, language, and Spirit that moves through all these expressions. I love exploring both Morocco and Turkey in general, and these cities are perfect starting points into the mystical nature of each.
One of my favorite places I have been to thus far are the Wahiba Sands in Oman. It is the softest sand I have ever run my fingers through.
Sounds magical. Finally, what is your guilty pleasure?
Sour Patch Kids . I know they are insanely terrible for my body and mind, but every once in a while…
Every now and then, they’re good for the soul! Thank you for sharing your story with us, Isis! We can’t wait to experience your incredible events again hopefully soon.
