Expert in Ancient Warrior Wisdom Traditions
Whether delivering a high-energy speech or a power-packed workshop, Kamran draws from his extensive background in ancient warrior traditions and methodologies that were employed by expert warriors, coupled with the latest research findings in neuroscience and evolutionary psychology. By bringing these two unique processes together, Kamran is able to demonstrate how they benefit every aspect of our lives and expand our capacity for creative thinking and leadership, including the development of strategy and tactics. For the past 50 years, Kamran has been a practitioner of Japanese and Indian classical warrior tradition. As an acknowledged expert and martial arts historian, Kamran has extensively researched the origins and tradition of warrior arts. During his research that has spanned over four decades, Kamran worked closely with the late Dr Gayatri Nath Pant, curator of India’s National Museum, who is the world’s foremost expert on Asian arms and armor. Through this work, Kamran is widely acknowledged as the leading researcher on the migration of the warrior arts from India to the Far East.
When delivering his inspirational speeches and power-packed workshops, Kamran draws from a variety of sources. These sources are used to guide the participants toward developing the best version of themselves, while also learning from time-tested processes, strategies and knowledge. The sources Kamran relies on are the product of a lifetime of study, research and dedication. Kamran Loghman’s search for inner transformation began at the young age of 11 when he started his training in the Eastern method of hypnosis under the renowned master hypnotist Fereydoun Farivar. Kamran’s search continued with a lifelong, in-depth study of the mediaeval Japanese warrior and ancient India warrior philosophy and traditions. In addition, for the past 45 years, Kamran
has been a practitioner of meditation and mindfulness directly under the tutelage of the world-renowned meditation master, the late Swami Muktananda Paramahansa, and later under the Siddha master Swami Chidvilasananda Paramahansa. These studies were specifically focused within the Indian tradition of Yoga, Vedanta and the non-dual school of Kashmir Shaivism, which has one of the most profound and in-depth studies of human consciousness. During this period, and to further deepen his knowledge, Kamran studied directly with Lakshman Joo, a scholar and mystic of Kashmir Shaivism, with an uninterrupted lineage dating back to 850 CE. It is interesting to note that Kamran’s search for inner transformation is connected even by bloodlines. Kamran’s maternal sides were Catholics from Georgia and a close relative of Joseph Jandieri, the mystic wonderworker (c. the 1700’s) who has been canonized as a saint by the Georgian Orthodox Church. His paternal side, however, is direct descendants of Ibrahim Adham (c. 718) one of the most prominent of the early ascetic Sufi saints. His story is one of the most celebrated in Sufi legends, like that of a King renouncing his throne and choosing asceticism closely echoing the legend of Buddha. The famed poet Rumi has extensively described the story of Ibrahim in his book, the Masnavi.
Kamran Loghman’s maternal side was from Tbilisi Georgia and his paternal side from Azerbaijan Iran. Kamran moved to Switzerland for schooling at an early age and migrated to the USA, in the early ’70s. He has a diploma from École Internationale in Geneva and obtained a B.A. in Philosophy from the University of San Francisco and an M.A. in Eastern Philosophy from The Catholic University of America.
