Robert “Bob” Wright, Jr., Ph.D., COFT is a graduate of the California Institute of Integral Studies doctoral program in Transformative Studies. Dr. Wright is the author of the first published study to show a correlation between grief, stress, and nitric oxide flatlining and grief recovery, stress reduction, and nitric oxide spiking. Dr. Wright’s study breaks new ground since his findings demonstrate that the same physiological mechanisms needed to induce relaxation also help us dissolve pain and grief. The study bolsters the linkage between the physiological mechanisms underlying the Relaxation Response and any method which causes a Relaxation Response to occur.
