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.

In the myriad of ways to realize our essential nature the way of Beauty is perhaps the least obvious, yet most mysterious. The sense of beauty is not an aesthetic concept or sentimental
feeling but a powerful throb within consciousness, a reflection of its own magnificence. Although some traditions dismiss creativity as nothing but volitional activity and therefore causal in its nature, if we are opened to another possibility we might uncover the inner artist and the very reason behind existence. Extreme sensitivity to beauty–with harmony as underlying structure of all formations–stupefies the mind of its entanglement in dual structure of the brain, even if momentarily, giving one direct and palpable experience of unity amidst diversity. This, when cultured enough
and brought to the level of one-pointed recognition – from cathartic experiences in the arts of various forms, to most mundane of encounters in daily life – culminates in a highest state
of Aesthetic Rapture. At once, an outpouring of creative impulses and bathing in the light of one’s own self-recognition. This is an invitation to re-evaluate the nature of experience and to reclaim your divine status. The only quest here is in beholding life awakening through you as existence itself. This is the Path of Beauty…
