There is no such thing as you without that Divine power. That’s all there is to it. Kundalini is the power behind your individuation. The Goddess is the individuation ‒ it’s the soul in any of its states, absolutely all of them. So this is a very simple realization that you need to make. It [Kundalini] is a greater you in you – as simple as that.
~ Igor Kufayev
Kriyas - spontaneous yogic processes
The phenomenon of kriyas remains a relatively unexplored subject in today's world of spirituality, yet is a profoundly fascinating one. We refer to them as spontaneous, involuntary movements such as mudras (symbolic gestures), bandhas (body locks), asanas (postures), pranayamas (yogic breathing), vocalizations, and more. There are physical kriyas, emotional and mental kriyas. They arise in meditation as the result of the stirring, awakening, and unfolding of Kundalini Shakti, the divine cosmic energy. Kriyas are a by-product of greater activity of pranic flow through the subtler pathways of energy ushered by the activation of Life Force. It is the sacred energy of Grace, bestowed through the power of transmission, which conducts the process of awakening within each of us.
“There is no Awakening without kriyas...”
This phenomenon is a constant and fascinating feature of Igor Kufayev’s retreats, arising in nearly every participant. We wish to provide glimpses into these humbling experiences through a selection of rare, beautiful images which were captured during recent immersions with Igor in Belgium, Mallorca, California and Canada in 2016.
We wish to honor and pay homage to the very power that is the timeless source and origin of yoga — and of all spiritual traditions. Reverence to Sri Kundalini Devi, the Divine Mother of All.
Diving Deeper into the Heart
THE PATH OF BEAUTY IS THE PATH OF THE HEART
THE PATH OF THE HEART IS THE PATH OF LOVE...
... To recognize this path, let alone walk it, requires a pure Heart awakened to truth and beauty. Yet true beauty cannot be revealed, unless the all-consuming power of love absolves the autonomy of our individuality into the heart of Being. This path transcends heaven and earth, as it at once takes us to the highest abode, and into the deepest cavern of life‘s mysteries. The Path of the Heart is not for the fainthearted – its power is sustained by that mighty offering kept alive through that Heart-to-Heart connection.
Sharings from Sadhakas
This Grace-filled, energetic work with Igor brings about life-changing transformation for many, but again, trying to commit these experiences to words can be daunting, and descriptions often fall short of the firsthand experience. Here, some of our deeply committed companions who have given themselves to this path share their unique experiences, describing in their own words how these teachings and this work has impacted their lives. May the divine flavor and fragrance of the powerfully transformative processes unfolding through this sacred work with our Teacher, come alive through these heartfelt sharings of his students, and be sensed and experienced through the words.
“Guru is literally both the teacher and the student as one indivisible whole. One makes the other. Just as teacher makes the student, so the student makes the teacher — mutually supporting each other in the spirit of highest Truth. This giving and receiving is the greatest teaching in disguise.”
