Brian Collins "The Rabid Monk"

 Intense, loving, bullshit destroyer

Intense, loving, bullshit destroyer

It all started when...

a young kid from the violent housing projects of 1970's South Boston questioned the racist energies that surrounded his life and began a mission to shift the often negative world around him. That once young kid was Brian Collins (aka The Rabid Monk). Brian has spent the past 40 years of his life studying, traveling and teaching metaphysical/martial practices and was a highly sought out hands on "healer" for 23 years at his offices in Boston's Back Bay.

From his studies in the isolated villages of China studying the secrets of Chi Gong with Masters, to the deep recessed Valleys of Hawai'i studying cosmic metaphysics and the inner workings of the mind with Kahunas,  Brian's abilities far surpassed any expectations of his former teachers and in the mid 1990's he quickly gained a reputation for being somewhat of a metaphysical wunderkind for his ability to manifest change on the physical and spiritual planes. Brian's in your face, no nonsense, streetwise, tell it as it spiritual methodology often shatters the mold of how a "Guru" is supposed to act and his clients frequently comment on how his unique combination of humor, metaphysical abilities and kindness has truly helped to reshape their lives. 

His understanding of energy has gone beyond the stereotypical "new age" concepts into an all encompassing extension of the idea ( and real world practice) of quantum entanglement itself. Brian's amazing connection to the energies of the subconscious and superconscious mind has been his healing "secret" since 1996 when he opened his 1st office on Newbury Street in Boston. It was at this humble location where his status of being a "healer" was born and he aided countless people with hands on techniques as well as remote distant healing sessions for clients all over the world.  During this time he was also covertly sharing another facet of chi, his cartoonist energy as a contributor to the City Shopper, Walking magazines and most recently Brian has been a cartoonist/comedy contributor to  website.

Brian now uses many forms of energy to help shift the reality that he experiences, as he is truly living the life mission he began as a child. Be it his spiritual humor based cartoons, his blog posts, his metaphysical consultation services for clients and businesses , the random strangers he may help , the destinations he travels to to shift stagnant energies, all of his actions and efforts are a humble extension of his enlightened energy and his unending dedication to creating positive ripple effects on Earth.

As Brian says :

"There is always some BS that needs cleaning up, you can either add your own crappola to what you see and create a an ever increasing bigger steaming pile or you can dig deep within and transmute what you see as reality and create a new world ".

Brian's clients range from Harvard Scientists to PhD's, from Lawyers to Financial Services Leaders, from Rock Stars to Movie stars, from the stay at home Mom to world renown Chefs. The one thing they all had in common?  Brian Collins "The Rabid Monk" has helped them all.





If you like your zen teachings with a little bit of sarcasm and street, Brian Collins is the man!

I am particularly fond of his South Boston working-class sense of humor

The world is redeemed by masters like Brian who, out of compassion for sentient beings, share freely of the wisdom that they have attained.  My life has been immeasurably enriched by our encounter.

“He is the best”

Brian Collins is a man who has changed my life. He has taken the confusion out of today's diluted, drive-through spirituality and has helped me forge an authentic path of love and acceptance for myself and others.

— N.M Boston, Ma..


Collins’ brand of spirituality and meditation—one worlds away from sitting cross-legged on a yoga cushion—is a welcome break for those tired of New Age-y jargon.

I am so grateful for all you have done for me.

“Enter the Rabid Monk.... .”

"Brian Collins Is the Real Deal. The Life Changer. He's a genuine healer, a wise teacher, and a good friend. I should also mention he is one of the most unique and funniest individuals I've ever had the pleasure of knowing !" 

— Whitesnake Bassist Michael Devin, Los Angeles, California.


"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" .

Brian has walked the walk more than anyone I've ever met.”

There is no way I could write a letter that could do justice to all the things Brian has done for me, my family and the world.

— B.H Boston, Massachusetts.


Profane sense of humor that combines the best parts of an Irish standup comedian and Zen master.”

For years it has felt like only those of us lucky enough to have encountered him know that one of the wisest men in America is a wise-ass sage from Southie. 

— Patrick Kiker Washington D.C.


“Nothing like what you would expect”,  Brian is a true spirituality and enlightenment ninja. 

— Dr. Jeff Karp, Principal Faculty at the Harvard Stem Cell Institute and Associate Professor at Brigham and Women's Hospital and Harvard Medical School.
