Tokpa Korlo is a gifted musician, photographer, videographer and sobriety activist with a large international following. Born in Austin, Texas into a family of meditators, he has since travelled the world extensively and lived in both Europe and Asia. Tokpa earned recognition as a jazz guitarist since his early teens, studied Jazz Performance and Composition at California Institute of the Arts and the Musicians Institute in Los Angeles where he was honored with the college’s “Outstanding Guitarist” award.
Like many artists Tokpa struggled with substance abuse before rediscovering his childhood roots in meditation and changing the direction of his life. Today, Tokpa shares his inspirational journey through photography, music, video and film. His work is based on a continuing effort to bring truth and clarity to this world through his art forms, and with it the passionate expression of sound, depth, color and light. The living embodiment of the transformative power of meditation, Topka brings his artistic talents and heartfelt insight to the Mindworks team as Chief Creative Officer and a Mind Trainer. Tokpa is a featured Mind Trainer in our Addiction, Recovery and Forgiveness meditation course. Check out his blog post on Overcoming the Fear of Now.
