Keizan Titus O’Brien

VDZS practice facilitator Keizan (Respect Mountain) Titus O’Brien has studied Zen for nearly three decades, since he was introduced to the idea by a teacher in college – the composer and artist John Cage. Keizan spent years residential training in centers and monasteries in both Korean and Japanese Zen schools, and has studied in other religious traditions. He is an authorized instructor in the Soto Zen tradition in the lineage of Taigen Dan Leighton and Shunryu Suzuki. His understanding of Zen is informed by his Christian upbringing, professional life in arts and education, as well as a lifelong interest in body and movement arts including hatha yoga and Tai Chi Ch’uan.
