Nana Kwasi Oppong
Workshop & Ritual Facilitator
Nana Kwasi Oppong is an initiated Okomfo (a priest of the Ghanaian spiritual tradition) of over 40 years and has had lifelong exposure to healing work by working in the shrines of his father and his maternal and paternal grandfathers. Nana Oppong is from the town of Oyoko, located in the Ashanti region of Ghana, West Africa; he currently resides in New York City.
Nana performs his work on two continents. Nana Oppong is the Okomfo Panyin of Aduro Ye Akomfo Fie of Koforidua, Ghana, where he possesses Nana Asuo Adesua, Nana Kwaku Odaaku, Nana Sankofa Amoa, Obaa Panyin Asuo Yaa and Oba Fen. He has initiated many African Americans in the U.S. and the Caribbean. His mission is to bring the gifts of traditional spiritual practices to the diaspora. Nana Oppong is a master herbalist (Odusane) and a very skilled minister of ritual healing work and accurately communicating with Spirit. He is honest, open, and generous--all important qualities in a teacher of the spiritual sciences.
Let’s not forget to mention that Nana Oppong was one of the people who Wofa Kwasi helped to get settled in the US. It wasn’t long before Nana Oppong became one of the information resources for Wofa Kwasi and one of Wofa’s best friends. We are blessed to have him perform the auspicious ritual of the Akonnua Tumtum.
