Ofosu Jones-Quartey has been practicing meditation since 2000, with a focus on Vipassana in the Mahasi and Thai traditions, incorporated with Madhyamaka philosophy. He is a part of the Bhavana Society community and a student of Bhante Buddharakkhita, among others. Ofosu is also an accomplished musical artist and was a founding member of the Buddhist-inspired Hip Hop band, Shambhala. Ofosu is now a solo artist, making both pop and Buddhist-inspired music.
Often times we think of the spiritual path as a journey to an idealized place or state, but really, the spiritual path is a journey home to where we always have been.
Dedicated to the memory of my friend Shawn Lucas who passed away while I was on retreat.
