Floetic Father Vision
I. Malik Saafir is passionate about helping fathers in co-parenting relationships find their flow using contemplative prayer techniques in Christian, Islamic, and Buddhist secularism.
His vision is a world where fathers actively engage in their children's lives, even when separated by distance. He envisions a community of resilient and connected fathers who inspire each other, share their experiences, and create a nurturing environment for their children's growth.
Through his Floetic Father coaching, he aspires to redefine co-parenting as an opportunity for fathers to impact the lives of their children and families holistically.
