About Hakim Tafari

Although Hakim Tafari defies categorization, a few things are clear. This guy has light. And his journey of personal transformation is nothing short of remarkable.

Hakim is a unique and gentle soul of many trades and traits. But fundamentally, he is a seeker. A journeyman of reinvention. An ambassador of running culture & mindfulness. A master of many a martial art from Kung Fu to Tai Chi. An herbalist, massage therapist, a vegan. And an ardent student and practitioner of several spiritual traditions from Buddhism to Daoism.

Hakim's life didn't come easy. Nor was it delivered overnight. Instead it's the hard-wrought product of devotion to progressive growth. To being just a little bit better today than yesterday.

Register today to hear Hakim's story.
