Human life is Divine, not only in terms of its potentiality, but because it is a perfect manifestation of all divine impulses of nature, reflected throughout our human physiology as the universe incarnate...


An artist, Advaita Tantra Teacher and founder of the Flowing Wakefulness Fellowship, for over a decade 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 all seekers of truth to recognize 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.

How willingly are we prepared to lose ourselves in that which is our true nature?


"Igor Kufayev is heart master and world teacher in the lineage of the illumined sages whose presence has engendered human spirituality, enlivening the earth with sacred resonance and enabling individual union with the divine. His knowledge of sacred tradition and techniques expresses itself as non-intellectual, heart-based illumination..."

— Michael Peter Cain, Founder Art Department,

Maharishi International University





Have you had a brush with awakening, or a full-blown collision with the infinite, but find it hard to integrate your experience? Are you a jaded seeker lacking spiritual ardour and tired of knocking on heaven's door? Are you subject to states of dissociation, and feeling lost in the process? Perhaps you've tried many approaches to heal the traumas in your past, to no avail. If some of this rings true, then this work is for you. Whether you are a total newcomer, in need of sound orientation to support your personal efforts or a seasoned meditator with decades of experience looking to break through the limitations of your practice, this work can be beneficial to you. Yet whilst this work is universal and open to all, irrespective of creed, race and gender, only those who are fully committed to their own progress will truly be able to benefit from it. In short, this work is for the householder, the maverick, the artist, the rebel, the pirate. Welcome aboard!




TANTRIC CHRIST – Realization of Christ-Consciousness as Awakening into the Essential Nature of our Heart

Speaking of the great traditions of the West, we can no longer view the story of Christ as an autonomous event, separate from our own awakening into the essential nature of Ultimate Reality, which is our very own Self. ​Here, we are being encouraged to draw parallels — to gain deeper insights into the dynamics of spiritual processes...

In-person events with Igor form the heart of this work. As a uniquely skilled guide, Igor nurtures and facilitates spiritual growth using whatever means best suit each individual participant, from energetic transmission to breath work, mantra work, self-inquiry, emotional introspection, and more. It is here in the presence of an adept that spiritual transformation unfolds with speed and safety, opening us to the discovery of our own true nature. The results are life changing.

Immersion days include meditations, discourses, question-and-answer sessions, and free time to rest and reflect. Vegetarian meals are provided. If you are a newcomer to work with Igor Kufayev, we highly recommend that you schedule an introductory live session with a Flowing Wakefulness facilitator before enrolling in an immersion.


I believe his voice and presence is really needed in our community. I wish I could put into words the value and importance of what he offers. Working with Igor moved me from the life of a seeker, to Life itself. And beyond my own flowering, I see Igor as part of the rising of the Divine Feminine in our world. I believe he hasn't yet been fully recognized for what is he and what he is doing, because we - collectively - are still very caught up in an outdated mindset that doesn't always allow us to know what we are seeing. We don't yet have the eyes to see or the ears to hear, although that is coming. Igor's is the voice of Shakti, rising within Shiva to enliven our awareness. The path that Igor teaches is one of deep respect for the power of the Feminine, for that infinite life force that is the source of all spiritual practices and traditions. It is a path of Grace, of beauty, of innocence - sometimes graceful and gentle, sometimes fierce and powerful - like the Mother.

— Bhumi Devi Clinchard

...Igor is a teacher with tremendous integrity whose strong presence is available to his students, ceaselessly investing in others and bringing light into this world. Here is a teacher who uncompromisingly urges his students to grow up, one who guides them safely through a process of tremendous alchemical changes in Consciousness, and allows suppressed archetypal forces of the Mother to regain their territories. With that, he facilitates the re-establishment of solid foundations for promoting healthy generations to come...

Ayurvedic Food ~ Myths & Reality

Unlike the image many have of Ayurveda as exotic and unfamiliar, the Ayurvedic diet is, in reality, much closer to the whole foods you consumed while growing up.  Think of rice pudding, vegetable soup with cornbread, mashed parsnips, or even lasagna. Any dish you can think of can be sātmya – that which is wholesome and agreeable to nature.


Denial of Peter l Pontius Pilate Washing 

In this excerpt from the Tantric Christ Immersion, Igor discusses the denial of Peter and the role of Pontius Pilate, the Governor of Judea, in condemning Christ to be crucified. Both Peter's denial and the role of Pilate are discussed from the point of view of the liminal stage of Christ Consciousness.

Flowing Wakefulness is united by a shared vision in exploring alternative possibilities for consciousness-based culture. The timeless beauty of this work lies in its all-embracing nature. Established and led by Igor Kufayev, this path is universal and open to all irrespective of creed, race or gender. It transcends any tradition and cultural identity. The essence of the path is to embody the fullest potential present in human birth, as Unity in diversity in all its uniqueness.

That vast territory that opens up between the beings who share profound Love for Truth — even if it looks like an ordinary encounter for an uninitiated one — in reality that‘s nothing less than a spark of Divine Grace which sets to illumine everything in its vicinity.



This work is always carried on the shoulders of enthusiasm

and through the hearts of commitment...
