Ofosu Jones-Quartey


About The Teacher

Ofosu Jones-Quartey is a meditation teacher and practitioner, whose focus in both teaching and practice stems from the Burmese style of vipassana as taught to him by his teacher Bhante Buddharakkhita, from the lineage of Mahasi Sayadaw. Ofosu's outlook however, incorporates viewpoints from the Mahdyamaka-Prasangika school of Tibetan/Mahayana Buddhism as well as other spiritual traditions and philosophical backgrounds ie Christianity, Judaism, etc. He has been teaching the Insight Meditation Community of Washington's (IMCW) Family Meditation Class with his co-teacher Jennifer Jordan since 2008. He has been working with Minds Incorporated in bringing mindfulness practice to schools, working with students directly in the classroom since 2014. Ofosu also co-teaches adult classes and retreats at various centers and Sanghas around the country as well as family retreats for IMCW and Spirit Rock. An accomplished musician, Ofosu also performs both domestically and internationally as a Hip Hop and Electronic Music artist. He often incorporates music into his teachings, creating a unique and special atmosphere for fellow practitioners. He is the voice of Stanley, the snail on the Sprout Network's cartoon "Ollie and Moon" and the male voice on the mindfulness app Balance. Ofosu's writings on how he incorporates his Buddhist philosophy into his secular music have been published by Mahachulalongkorn University in Ayuttaya, Thailand. He currently lives in the Washington, DC area with his wife Ayanna and their four children, Sundara, Samadhi, Sati and Siddhattha

Why Retreat?

We asked people why they go on retreat, here's what they said:

So that I am rejuvenated to be the best I can be in my relationships - personal, work and in Society - offering and giving to be of benefit to others! Laura
