Wisdom and knowledge cannot be imposed or given to anyone. It takes a sincere aspirant who makes every effort to discover the ultimate gift of Existence---Self-Knowledge.
- Salaheddin Ali Nader Angha, Pir, Oveyssi
Tamarkoz means concentration, particularly the concentration of our energies. Tamarkoz is the gateway to true self-awareness, harmony and balance. It includes sets of practices which assist one in attaining a more advanced physical, mental, emotional and spiritual state. Based on the 1400 year old discipline of Islamic Sufism, Tamarkoz training has been opened to the public for the first time by the Sufi Master, Hazrat Salaheddin Ali Nader Angha.
KEY ELEMENTS OF TAMARKOZ®
The following types of exercises are key components of Tamarkoz®. Their organized, disciplined practice is an essential element in the process of positive change.
Movazeneh® includes specific postures and positions as well as slow movement exercises which stimulate, concentrate, and balance the flow of energy of the 13 major electromagnetic centers of the body.
Clearing the Mind develops control of the neural circuitry of the brain, consciously slowing down brain waves. This halts habitually interfering thought patterns, diminishes emotional reactions, and prepares us physically and mentally for concentration.
Breathing Exercises focus on increasing respiratory capacity and controlling the rhythm and duration of breathing. This ensures maximal oxygenation, aids in regulating other vital processes, and reduces reactivity.
Deep Relaxation teaches muscular control, and relieves tension and stress, which allows the body to recuperate and revitalize.
Visualization replaces critical, negative thought patterns with more positive, healing images which encourage hope, vitality, motivation and creativity.
Concentration provides neurological and sensory training which enables us to learn to focus like a laser beam on a single point.
Sufi Psychology Association Conferences include Tamarkoz® exercises, and Tamarkoz® Retreats focus on the various elements of Tamarkoz®.
In North America, classes are held in Los Angeles and Sacramento.
In Europe, classes are held in London, Paris, Versailles, and Dusseldorf.
