The Source of Ultimate Knowledge, Power & Joy
A groundbreaking, pre-recorded 11-part online course with Igor Kufayev
A Welcome Note From Igor Kufayev
Being able to relate something which is not short of the most precious realisation any human being can have is a pure joy, which makes this into a truly worthwhile undertaking. And when it comes to that realisation, there is nothing that takes place outside of the domain of Kundalini. Long gone is the time when information on Kundalini was scarce and limited to selected publications known to insiders and scholars alike. Contrary to that, the internet is flooded with readymade references, lengthy articles, classical and clinical perspectives, and personal accounts, including a variety of assessments on the importance of what it is, but there is still no coherent view on what this power represents. And although Kundalini is no longer an exotic term shrouded in mystery, it is possibly the one and only word that unites all true spiritual breakthroughs across the variety of cultures throughout the ages.
Although Kundalini has firmly entered the vernacular of many languages, and despite being one of the most well known of spiritual processes, the term still remains ambiguous if not largely misunderstood, and is often misinterpreted or even dismissed in certain spiritual circles today. Some of these perspectives are biased by a lack of understanding of what the term represents in its full measure, but the reason for the often conflicting views is rooted in the complexity of the process—of how it manifests itself in terms of the bio-energetic field of the body, as well as the deeply personal nature of experiences. Another reason that the Kundalini concept turns to quicksilver, is that it represents our soul’s potential—that which animates all our experiences—and as consciousness, it cannot be reduced to an object of observation. Being the power which illumines all our feelings, thoughts, cognitive and motor processes—even as a dormant energy—Kundalini empowers all our perception. When aroused, it brings insight into the greater reality of who we are; and when fully awakened, it acts as the tour de force of spiritual transformation, without which all spiritual wisdom is but another mental concept. Full sublimation of its power consumes the dichotomy of the subject-object dynamic, along with the one who could claim it—what remains is a shimmering field of awareness awake to its own glory.
This is an invitation to partake in the unraveling of life’s greatest mystery, exemplified in consciousness coiled unto itself so as to experience what we call human being at this moment in time of our shared reality.
–Igor Vamadeva Kufayev, Mallorca, April 2021
What is Kundalini?
At the core of human and of all cosmic life is the vibrant force, the quiver at the heart of all creation, emanating as a shimmering luminous ocean of sound, and manifesting as all forms and phenomena. These frequencies, in their varying degrees of vibration, are manifestations of Shakti in its cosmic and individual form. As the ebb and flow on the sea of infinity, these divine pulsations are rhythms of creation and Kundalini is the orchestrating power that moves it all in waves of bliss. And though it is the power that illumines all experiences, there is no way to grasp nor describe its brilliance when it reveals itself in the heart of men as joy personified.
Coiled upon itself, Kundalini is a spiritual energy which animates all processes in the body and all currents of vital energies, on all its levels, whilst residing in the causal body at the base of the spinal column in a self-imposed state of slumber. Often referred to as life force—which remains dormant in most human beings—when aroused it brings about the expansion of awareness, and when awakened, brings radical shifts in perception about one’s essence. It is, at once, consciousness and the kinetic power behind all creative processes, which ultimately expresses itself as human experience.

About The Teacher
An artist, Advaita Tantra teacher, and founder of the Flowing Wakefulness Fellowship, for over two decades Igor Kufayev has been serving as a conduit of transmission for awakening towards the new era of heart-centered consciousness. Speaking from direct realization of Oneness, he inspires and initiates the recognition of the fullest potential present in human birth. Many have been touched by grace and awakened in his presence, as he continues working towards building a global community to serve as a container for exploring possibilities for alternative, consciousness-based culture.
Igor has been working with kundalini emergencies and all sorts of aspects of energetic transformation for nearly two decades now, drawing on rich experience of his own process and having guided many on this path of energetic transformation.
Igor’s involvement with sacred tradition expresses itself as non-intellectual, heart-based illumination. It could be said that Igor’s teaching methods are rooted in Advaita Tantra of Kashmir Shaivism. However, having studied such diverse traditions as Vedanta, Tantra, Sufism and Zen for many years, Igor remains elusive to categorisation, 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.
Igor emphasises the psycho-physiological nature of the awakening process, pointing to the importance of purification of the nervous system from accumulated stresses, accompanied by major rewiring of neural pathways which awakens dormant areas in brain cortexes. A teacher of immense spiritual experience, Igor facilitates spiritual growth using whatever means best suit the individual student—the degree of their spiritual evolution, readiness and capacity to respond—from energetic transmission to breathwork, mantra work, self-inquiry, and emotional introspection.
Having lived a full life in the world as a successful artist, Igor as a family man is now lovingly raising his three children with his partner Amrita Ma Devi. These skills of bringing the loftiest spiritual teachings into “the marketplace of life” make Igor an exceptional teacher. Igor not only brings the rare ability to initiate others into profound tantric practice, but also safeguards his students through all stages of awakening whilst emphasizing the importance of bringing the teaching where it rightfully belongs—into this body, into one’s relationships and the all-embracing perception of this world.
Igor’s debut book, Camatkāra: The Hidden Path, is a lucid exposition on Tantra’s most compelling outlook, which offers an alluring perspective on the role of aesthetic astonishment in our daily life, and ultimately points to the purpose of human experience. The book was published earlier this year.

The course… it is a work of art… a symphony of spontaneous throb. Life-affirming, succinct, profound, boundless and elemental in its influence. Something to behold with a depth that calls over and over again for visiting, wondering and pondering. A bubbling spring of remembrance. A Road Map For the Brave and Humble…to the Divine…”
—Sharareh, Kundalini Course participant
This course is like ghee, going through everything and feeding, healing all aspects of myself… but Igor has the sweetness of honey, the work of countless little bees working as one, harvesting the nectar of countless flowers. I don’t know how the course might impact others but I know the effects it has on me, how it is rippling through and lifting years of uncertainties and loneliness. Thank you for giving me more years of Life. May they be put to wise and loving use. This is a tool the world and the future has needed: I bow in humble gratitude for bringing it in. Very aware and appreciative of the incredible feat this is at too many levels to cite them all.
—Isis, Kundalini Course participant
When Kundalini started activating in me I was so very lost and confused. The only books I had read containing spirituality were The Bible and The Power of Now by Eckhart Tolle. I had no terms, ideas, mantras, and had only been meditating with YouTube videos. Thank you, and God bless you for all that you do. Your course is serious and so profoundly knowledgeable, and a lot of long hard work, but I would never have been learning any of this and that if it weren’t for you. I hold you in my Heart and look forward to many more modules we have yet to discover. Love and Light. So Ham.
