Synthesis of Tradition, Innovation & Insight
The World is as you see it. Whatever you behold, behold it tenderly; it is alive and throbbing with infinite possibilities of which you are but an expression of Love in Its pure potentiality…
~ Igor Kufayev
My offerings are based on the transformative teachings and the ‘Path of the Heart’ of Advaita Tantra teacher and founder of Flowing Wakefulness, Igor Vamadeva Kufayev. During my first encounter with Vamadeva in Holland in 2015, I recognized in him my ultimate spiritual guide.
Vamadeva is an extraordinary spiritual teacher who abides in an uninterrupted state of Unity Consciousness. He has the rare gift of awakening the dormant spiritual energy, called kundalini, in aspirants through the transmission of spiritual energy (shaktipat), and guiding his students in their process of realizing, embodying and living Oneness.
Vamadeva’s teaching is the knowledge of the Self, streaming spontaneously from the Heart in resonance with the necessity of time. It is rooted in the non-dual philosophy of Kashmir Shaiva Tantra of Northern India, which is known for its sublime, down-to-earth approach for the modern householder. However, having studied such diverse traditions as Vedanta, Tantra, Sufism and Zen for many years, Vamadeva remains elusive to categorization, maintaining that tradition is not a set of esoteric teachings and techniques but a vibrant field of energy enlivened in the hearts of those who go through this transformative process firsthand — and bring these teachings to life. Vamadeva’s background as a famous artist highlights the importance of the refinement of perception and opens us to the wonder of this creation as the manifestation of Divine Consciousness.
Many have awakened in Vamadeva’s presence over the last years and are guided to transform ordinary perception into the vision of the Divine. His work is an invitation to respond to the timeless calling of the soul and bring the greatest spiritual teaching of the Self where it rightfully belongs — in the very cells of our bodies, from where it radiates into our lives and all that we do. This is what it means to manifest heaven on earth.
The ‘Path of the Heart’ as taught by Vamadeva has transformed my life, guiding my spiritual journey through the Grace descending power of Consciousness and the all-embracing nature of this teaching, and it’s a great honor for me to serve his teaching and share what I’ve learned over the past five years.
