Tamarkoz | sufi meditation beyond concentration

Last weekend i had the blessed opportunity to participate in the Tamarkoz meditation class organized by UCLA (university of california, los angeles) MTO sufi association. The class was instructed by experienced Tamarkoz practitioner and instructors. The experience was really energyzing and rejuvenating. Following the meditations there was zikr session and breaking of fast as well. As i observed it, Tamarkoz feels like it has incorporated fusion elements from ancient yoga of indian tradition and chinese tai-chi such as harmonious body movement and postures.

:: What is Tamarkoz
Tamarkoz is a Persian term that means concentration, referring to the concentration of abilities. Consequently, the term concentration is synonymous with close attention, convergence, gathering, condensing, and consolidation. Moreover, Tamarkoz is the 1,400 year-old Sufi practice of concentration and meditation, allowing the seeker to connect with the reality within.

Tamarkoz facilitates the journey of self knowledge, as it enables the individual to connect to one's inner source of energy by accessing the energy centers of the body. It guides the student through harmony and submission in order to achieve unity.

Unlike simple concentration methods taught in classes bearing the title “meditation,” Tamarkoz goes beyond concentration, which is limited to the mind, and moves to the heart - enabling deeper meditation. The practice is built on a series of 5 different exercise groups which use posture, breathing, movement, relaxation, visualization, and energy work. The exercises include:
  • Mental Relaxation
  • Movazeneh – Energizing Physical Movements,
  • Breathing Exercises – using rhythm, duration and depth,
  • Deep Relaxation and Visualization – Achieving Total Relaxation
  • Tamarkoz - Exploring the function of the body's energy centers
:: Electromagnetic Centers of Energy
The human body has a built-in electromagnetic system consisting of 13 main centers. The inherent functions of these centers are vital to the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual well-being of the human being. The most important of these centers resides in the heart. According to the teachings of Professor Sadegh Angha, the 41st master of the MTO Shahmaghsoudi School of Islamic Sufism, the Source of Life in the heart is the primary energy source of the body.

"In Tamarkoz, the magnetic centers are in a progressive process of activating, balancing, and unifying our energy fields. Through awareness of these centers we are guided toward fulfilling our inherent potentials. With Tamarkoz, the energies are aligned, balanced, and unified so that the mind, heart, and magnetic fields all work together." - From Hidden Angles of Life By Professor Sadegh Angha Pir Oveyssi.
