with Ofosu Jones-Quartey

March 6 - 8, 2020

Ofosu’s unique teaching style helps us bring mindfulness into our daily life in a way that we can take home and practice. He teaches kindness, love, presence and how they support and interact with mindfulness. Knowing how music can reach us in ways that words alone cannot, he also uses his music to punctuate the Dharma he is teaching.
By observing the mind and body and their processes we develop a deeper understanding of truth, right here, right now. Then by seeing how we attempt to construct a coherent world from a series of mental events and assumptions, we come to understand the impermanent nature of existence.

In this retreat Ofosu will guide us through Dharma concepts and practices that will shows us very clearly that we have the tools to take control of our happiness and help create happiness for others.
