Going deeper in the experience of life – IGOR KUFAYEV


An early interest towards spirituality lead to his practice of Yoga with initiation in 1996 to Transcendental Meditation, founded by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi. He immerses himself in the study of diverse spiritual traditions with special emphasis on Indian Philosophy, Sufi and Zen. At the age of thirty six Igor had undergone a radical transformation of consciousness[7][8][9] which subsequently blossomed into spontaneous unfoldment of Grace.

He abandoned his art career and for the next five years he continued long hours of meditation, integrating expanded state of awareness throughout his daily activities. During that time he discovered the teachings of Swami Muktananda which led him to the tradition of Kashmir Shaivism. Its ‘transcendental physicalism’ appealed to his down to earth, creative sensibility, unique to that tradition’s doctrine of Spanda (Sanskrit: “throb, vibration”) which had been verified by direct experience, in perceiving the World as a Throb of Pure Consciousness in the Heart of his own.
