Brian Culkin is a 2001 graduate of Skidmore College with a B.A. in American Studies. While at Skidmore, Brian was an NCAA Division 3 Regional All American basketball player as well as graduating as the all time leading scorer in its basketball program.
After a brief professional basketball career in Europe, Brian returned to Boston where he began a career in the finance industry.
In mid 2008 Brian became disillusioned with the state of the entire financial world. There was, at the time, a consideration to apply to several top tier MBA programs in order to develop new business skills and foster new relationships.
Instead, he shut his business down and spent the next 2 years traveling the globe, studying yoga and meditation at a variety of prestigious centers and taking a series of courses on organizational theory, executive training, and management consulting. This included a one year stay at the Esalen Institute, the world renowned human potential center in Big Sur, CA.
He has since started Jai Yoga, a small yoga center south of Boston and is doing consulting work for the Open Mind Training Institute. OMTI is boutique consulting firm located in Santa Monica, CA that consults businesses and leads workshops around the world.
Brian is a Senior Consultant in this organization working directly under OMTI founder Dr. Ronald Alexander.

In this pivotal moment from my play, No One Leaves This Place Dead, one of the main characters has a sudden cognition in regards to the context in which he had existed throughout his life. His prior notions about “being a good person” had suddenly been tested in a way he had not prepared for, and a lifetime of regret and inauthenticity comes rushing to the surface in a compelling outpouring of spontaneous emotional expression.

I have experienced many practitioners of yoga to have systematically divorced their theoretical approach of matters pertaining to war and violence with actual application, instead holding certain principals of Indian philosophy as an abstraction for some remote time in the future versus the extremely dangerous situation we find ourself in today as a planetary culture. This pertains primarily to the political choices and social affiliations that seem to be popular and in agreement with the yoga community.
