In meditation the limited sense of individuality is poured into the Self.
~ Igor Kufayev
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.
Igor regularly hosts immersions in Western Europe and North America. The daily schedule includes meditations, discourses, question-and-answer sessions, and free time to rest and reflect. Vegetarian meals are provided.
Week-long residential immersions are sometimes followed by an optional, but highly recommended integration period, or "spillover." Spillovers are generally three days in length, and provide a graceful transition from the immersion back into our daily duties.
Weekend immersions, from Friday night to Sunday afternoon, provide a rich taste of this work and are especially well suited for newcomers, and those who cannot participate in longer programs.
If you are new to this work with Igor, we recommend that you book a Seeing Through the Heart session with a Flowing Wakefulness facilitator. These sessions form an initial connection to the teaching, and prepare newcomers to smoothly enter into the work as it unfolds at an immersion.
If you are interested in attending an immersion and you have any questions about the programs, we offer a free 20-minute intro-ductory question-and-answer session with one of Igor's students who is familiar with this work. Please have your questions written down in advance, to make the best use of your time. If you would like to book a session, write to email@example.com
and please mention the country where you currently reside.
There are also regular online Darshans held by Igor Kufayev for the worldwide community and for newcomers to this work. The online Darshan is an opportunity to have your personal questions addressed by Igor. The 2-hour program begins with a short guided meditation followed by a question and answer session.
The essence of the spiritual path is not so much in gaining, but in simply uncovering that which is already there. And that is what darshan is. Successful darshan, successful satsang is that — it is to peel the layers, to remove yet another layer, so that the truth can shine forth on its own; that truth can shine forth.
“Igor is an extraordinary spiritual teacher who beautifully articulates the essence of many sacred traditions. Drawing most frequently from Vedic, Kashmiri Shaivite, Buddhist, Taoist, Sufi sources, he speaks from both direct experience and scriptural texts. He exalts the awareness of persons receiving his darshan through direct transmissions imparted during group meditation practice that enflames practitioners’ hearts into collective ecstasy. Many retreat participants report lasting transformations, including sustained higher states of consciousness.”
