Timeline of Igor Kufayev


Igor often refers to his teaching as “The Path of the Heart,” and explains that it is a non-intellectual and direct cognition of the essence of one’s reality — one which transcends any tradition, because by definition it cannot be contained by a set of doctrines. Here, knowledge is not mental or intellectual, nor spoken of in terms of acquisition; it is simple direct knowingness itself — beyond concepts and precepts, understanding, and language. Igor explains this:

So when I said I don’t belong to any tradition, I want to make one little adjustment to that. I do belong to a tradition and that is the tradition which could be called simply, “the heart.” And don’t try to decipher it again through any “isms” or spiritual traditions, because the experience of the heart transcends all traditions. And the time has come when we have to transcend those traditions that calcify to themselves…


Central to Igor’s teaching methodology is the transmission of spiritual energy, which occurs primarily during in-person events. He has commented that “the real work happens at the immersions — the real work happens in these specifically created containers.” Participants at his immersions commonly experience spontaneous, involuntary kriyas, in the form of asanas, pranayama, glossolalia, and vocal harmonizing. One of the unusual but constant features of Igor’s live events is spontaneous vocalization and overtoning by the participants.

Igor states that these phenomena are both a result of release of stress, as well as the “Song of the Goddess” — literally a manifestation of Shakti through a group of people in meditative trance.

In 2014, Igor consecrated the Flowing Wakefulness Fellowship, with a stated mission to serve “as a platform for revealing and realizing possibilities for a Consciousness-based culture, aimed at the recognition, development and actualization of the fullest potential present in human birth.”


In September 2013 Igor Kufayev was interviewed for the ‘Conscious TV’ (London based Channel), where he shared his views on the subtleties of awakening process based on biographical events of his life, and addressed the unifying complexity of self-realization and integration of higher states of awareness as seen from the biological perspective of human consciousness.


In October 2006, in an interview with Seva Novgorodsev for the BBC Russian Service, Kufayev talked about his years as an artist and the decision to leave painting.

Igor now lives with his partner and their two small children in Mallorca, Balearic Islands, Spain. In 2006 he moved back to Uzbekistan and lived in his birth city of Tashkent for almost four years. Between April 2011 and December 2012 he and his family were traveling in Central America with the base in Costa Rica, followed by spending nine months, until September 2013, in Mallorca Kufayev has a grown-up daughter from a previous relationship who lives in Warsaw, Poland.


Since 2002 Kufayev has been sharing his insights into the nature of Being. Despite many requests, he declined to place himself in the role of a teacher until he made the conscious decision to give his full time to teaching in February 2008. Since 2012 he has offered online webinars and in-person gatherings and retreats worldwide. Many of his video-podcasts and recorded gatherings are freely available on his YouTube channel.


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 which subsequently blossomed into spontaneous unfoldment of Grace.


The following series of four tondos under the same title, Zauber was an achievement which took two years to complete (1995–1997).


He moved to London in August 1991, the same year his six year old daughter from his first marriage died in a road accident. He remained in a prolonged period of grief unable to paint until he was able to come to terms with the personal tragedy and embarked on the series of dramatic paintings. The turning point came in 1994, on the wake of the one-man exhibition, entitled Burnt Earth and dedicated to the memory of his daughter Laura, he put his name on the map of London’s art scene as one of the most promising young painters. In less than a decade Kufayev managed to establish himself as a successful artist, and opened his own studio in London where he held private views of his work annually. The Zauber tondo was created in response to the commission Igor Kufayev received from Elton John AIDS Foundation, which was to accompany the performance of Mozart’s opera Die Zauberflote at Christie’s head-quarters at St James’s in London, in the autumn of 1995. A few months later, in January 1996 he was granted British Citizenship.


In 1990 Kufayev left Russia and moved to Warsaw, Poland. This was a formative time. An encounter with the art critic Andrzej Matynia lead to Kufayev’s first solo exhibition, Eternal Compromise at the Monetti Gallery, Warsaw. Igor was invited to take part in The Meeting of Sacred Images, at the National Museum of Ethnography in Warsaw, with his triptych Compromise, alongside such Icons as the Black Madonna of Częstochowa and Mexican Our Lady of Guadalupe as well as modern masters as Christian Boltanski.


Igor Kufayev was born in Tashkent, Uzbekistan. In his childhood he had many spiritual experiences associated with awakening of Kundalini. Classically trained in art from an early age he attended a private studio of a martial artist and painter Shamil Rakhimov, a place of underground meetings between liberal thinkers, poets and painters. The violent death of his mentor lead to young Igor’s decision to become an artist. Kufayev received his formal education at the Art College in Tashkent, and after two years of compulsory military service, resumed his studies at the Theater and Art Institute, at the department of Mural painting. In 1988 he was accepted as a student of a second year to the Academy of Arts (now Imperial Academy of Arts) in St Petersburg, Russia. Independently of his official program, he studied and painted directly from the masterpieces of western art, in the Hermitage Museum.


Igor Anvar Kufayev /ˈ k uː f ə j ɛ v / (Russian: И́горь Анва́р Kу́фаев , IPA: [ˈiɡərʲ ɐnˈvar ˈkufəɪf] ; born January 5, 1966), is a Russian British artist, yogi and spiritual teacher. Also known as ‘Vamadeva’ (Sanskrit), which means “preserving aspect of Shiva in his peaceful, graceful and poetic form”.

Kufayev is one of a rare breed of artists who believe in going back to go forward… Born in Tashkent, Uzbekistan, in 1966, he studied at the Tashkent School of Art, where his early love of drawing was honed and refined for four years. He had, in fact, been drawing professionally since the age of 12, and recognized as something of a prodigy… His zeal to perfect drawing technique led him to move to St Petersburg and The Academy of Fine Art and, independently of his studies, he began making numerous copies of the great Western masterpieces hanging in The Hermitage… The whole of his show, Burnt Earth, is redolent of archeological finds – the secrets masquerading as treasures only a few feet under the surface. Blood and earth are unified in Kufayev’s vision, emphasising our origins and our certain end.
