Ofosu Jones-Quartey has been meditating for more than 20 years, and he has been teaching families, children, and adults for the last 14 years. Pulling from his experience as a father of four, electronic music and hip-hop artist, and children’s book author, he enjoys infusing humor and fun into his meditations. Ofosu believes that meditation isn’t just about sitting still; rather, it’s a living practice that can be done anytime, anywhere. As a teacher, he enjoys having a positive impact in the world and helping people better understand themselves. Among Ofosu’s favorite things are silent meditations, leather jackets, Batman, and dad jokes.
