Rev. Kogen Ananda, Keith Martin-Smith, is an author and recognized Northern Kung Fu lineage holder and SiFu.  He has been studying and teaching Northern Shaolin Kung Fu and Qi Gong for over 20 years and runs a school out of Boulder, Colorado. 

In 2009, his first collection of short stories, The Mysterious Divination of Tea Leaves, was published. In 2012 his second major work was published, the memoir of Jun Po Denis Kelly Roshi, A Heart Blown Open, which Ken Wilber called, “A must-read for anyone with even a passing interest in human evolution.” In 2014, Jun Po and Kogen collaborated on another book, The Heart of Zen, which provides an in-depth question and answer discussion about Mondo Zen and Jun Po’s path to creating it.
