What you'll do

With the help of personal pictures and stories, I will take you through the journey of my life, from fleeing my homeland due to persecution and war to arriving in Australia by boat and creating a life for myself. Throughout my life I have endured traumatic experiences that I was able to survive with a resilient mindset. I want to talk to you about these experiences and share how you too could practice and integrate resilience into your life. After surviving my journey as a refugee, I have since taught myself to thrive by letting go of all fear of failure and allowing my faith to be stronger than my fear. I want to share the power of this mindfulness with you.

I want to hear about your life; your goals and challenges, and the things that you could achieve if fear did not hold you back.

Towards the end of the session I will guide you through a brief meditation that has helped me perform both physically and mentally. The meditation will be centered around empowerment, to manifest your goals and leave you feeling inspired.

I am an IOC Refugee Scholarship holder for the Tokyo Olympics, where I hope to compete in Karate. Originally from Afghanistan, I fled to Iran due to ongoing conflict and war when I was young. I stayed there until I was 16, during which time I was persecuted because of my ethnicity. Due to the need to protect myself, I began learning and developing a passion for Martial Arts. Around seven years ago, I fled to Australia as an asylum seeker by boat. I have since been granted Refugee status.

When I am not training for Tokyo, I work as a Personal Fitness Trainer and a Disability Support Worker. By sharing my journey as a refugee as well as mindfulness exercises, I hope to inspire and empower people to become the best versions of themselves.

Asif has an incredible soul. As someone who has lived so much, and channels such incredible energy, he has a powerful story and message to share. His Experience will transport you through the challenging journey, resilience, and belief he has in himself and humanity to achieve what he has achieved. Asif is not only an incredible athlete, and a kind human, but ultimately a change maker. Strongly recommend doing his Experience!

Learning meditation from a professional athlete is an unmissable experience. Athlete's face intense pressure, they need razor-sharp focus, and they have to get in the 'zone'. All of those things give athletes a very unique point of view when it comes to meditation. Asif is a very mindful person who seems wise beyond his years. The peacefulness of his presence is powerful and I can imagine how that peacefulness gives him the ability to achieve greatness in his sport and in his life. I learned about how he utilizes meditation to achieve success in sport and in life. This knowledge is extremely important to me. Whether you're on the mat in front of an Olympic audience, at home alone, or presenting a project at work, the ability to stay calm, mindful and clear is something that everyone should have.

Asif's experience was very powerful and insightful. He shares his journey with both honesty and gratitude, and he actively involved all guest throughout the experience. The way that Asif spoke about the fear of failure and how to overcome this was very significant. The meditation was also a highlight, as it was both relaxing and empowering at the same time. I highly recommend this experience to everyone!
