Doen Roshi is the founder of Lost Coin Zen, an international Zen training organization. The Lost Coin Clan gathers in person for Sesshin/Intensives & Workshops at least four times yearly. We practice together and remain close through our Lost Coin Arts & Ways practice, The Lost Coin Study Center, and multiple weekly online meetings.

Roshi has an intimate and genuine style of teaching traditional Zen enriched by his own eclectic background in ‘The Way’ including years of Gurdjieff training and the 25 years he studied Zen Buddhism before beginning to teach. Doen Roshi studied with Hakuyu Taizan Maezumi Roshi (founder of the White Plum Asanga), John Daido Loori Roshi and Genpo Dennis Merzel Roshi.
