Brian Collins "The Rabid Monk"
The Rabid Monk Story
Known as "The Rabid Monk", Brian Collins is a multi award winning business owner ( for 25 years in Boston’s Back Bay) now is an online spiritual consultant with a semi private practice.
Brian was born in the Old Harbor Housing Projects in South Boston, Massachusetts and raised during some of the most violent times in South Boston's history. Seasoned by the 1970‘s/1980‘s violence of the local Irish crime lord ridden streets as well as the stereotype attached to him by being Irish and from South Boston, Brian sought for the answer to the question “Why do people hate each other?” at a very young age..
In his youth, he rebelled against all forms of racism and oppression and as a result of that fateful decision to do so, his spiritual quest to have his life questions answered began. His travels for esoteric answers brought him to the powerful spiritual centers of Mainland China, Hong Kong, Taipei , Mexico, Scotland, England, Ireland and the Sacred Valley's of Hawai'i. As a result of his absolute dedication to this inner journey, he unlocked amazing healing energies within himself that he then used to change the course of history for countless clients at his practice for 25 years in Boston's Back Bay.
Brian was widely known for providing jaw dropping results (as well enlightening people through his street wise, in your face, no nonsense approach to energetic and spiritual healing). Brian also is a Master of Arnis ( A Filipino Martial Art) and was featured in Boston Magazine numerous times for his vast knowledge of meditation and energy. He was also a contributing writer to The Toilet Paper Entrepreneur Website/ Mike Michalowicz Blog where he discussed varied ways on how to use ones spiritual energy to better the workplace .In addition to having his healing/spiritual consultation practice of 25 years he is currently designing online spiritual teaching programs (currently in development) and enlightened clothing to induce inner smiles. His cartoon stylings also were featured on the Absurd.com comedy website, City Shopper and Walking magazines in Boston.
Brian refers to his enlightenment style as “Subconscious chi vibes ” and adds 21st century spiritual lessons to his comedy influenced spiritual instruction so that messages of growth and empowerment immediately register and uplift ones subconscious without the weight and confusion of historical oppressive modalities of the past. His vast knowledge of spiritual energy and 21st century spirituality combined with his "Southie" wise ass Irish nature is truly a impactful energy to encounter and experience. Some call Brian Collins a comedian, some call him a Spiritual Master....Brian Collins "The Rabid Monk" calls himself, Brian.

"I was referred to Brian about 15 years ago by my, then therapist who felt he might be able to help me. At the time I was suffering from near debilitating depression. I had tried, what I thought was everything, drugs, therapy even ECT. Nothing had worked"
Then I met Brian. I believe that it was Brian who really pulled me out of the black hole I had been inhabiting for over a year. I am an accountant, I deal in hard facts. I can't explain what happened to me after seeing him. Just being in his presence was a transformative experience, I have never met anyone like him. He was a loving , funny , caring person who helped me to see the values of living. I am extraordinary fortunately to have had Brian in my life. He is a treasure" .
