Brian Reid


While admiring the unshakeable groundedness yet passionate preaching of his Pentecostal minister grandfather, Brian was raised in a strong Catholic household. Thanks to some of his parents’ closest friends, he celebrated many Seder meals and discovered how Christ was actually raised as a Jew. By the time Brian got to college, he noticed that he kept reading the “Intro to Buddhism” book on the bathroom floor. Years later, he completed a 18-course foundational program in Tibetan Buddhism and graduated from the advanced series in 2010. Brian formerly served as Mahasukha’s Executive Director and Board Vice-President. Today, he serves as a Senior Teacher at Mahasukha as well as teaching nationwide and abroad. You can contact him at
