Remembering Christine Wright (1958 – 2018)

Christine Wright has been a longtime friend of Allan Combs, the California Institute of Integral Studies’ faculty/ students, and she has also been a friend to many members of the Society for Consciousness Studies. 


Christine passed away on July 16, 2018, as the result of a medical problem she struggled with for years; Christine was only sixty years-old when she passed. 

As we gather together for the upcoming conference at the Yale, the Society will remember the impact that Christine had on those who knew her. 


Christine was born in Jamaica; Christine was an only child and she and her mother came to the United States when Christine was seven years-old. Throughout her life, Christine mentored youth first as a high school teacher then later as an elementary school teacher. Christine’s real passion was being able to mentor youth in an after-school program she developed and ran as a non-profit for a number of years. 

In 2007, Christine married Robert “Bob” Wright, PhD, a member of the Society. Dr. “Bob” plans to join us at the YDS for the Summer 2019 Consciousness Conference. Christine and Bob have spent the last ten years building “Stress Free Now”, a podcast/ website series that is among the top 50 stress podcasts in the world. 


Christine impacted many others’ lives during her own lifetime. It is my hope that we will take the time to honor her and acknowledge her work in our gathering and sharing of knowledge. 

During her life, Christine also supported the charity work done by members of her family. One such organization, The Liberian Overseas Covenant Keepers, seeks to help Liberian people in having their basic needs met. Here you can download their brochure.
