Hi! I’m Bob Bray,
and I exist for one reason and one reason only:
to reduce suffering in the world.
Lofty? Idealistic? Outlandish? Some people might think that way; but clearly, I’m not one of those people.
In fact, I’m confident I play a vital role in alleviating the pain associated with trauma and that I was born to do so on a global scale.
In my formative years, news headlines centered on JFK, Martin Luther King, Jr., Watergate, and Vietnam. Riots, corruption and needless killing were topics of every day conversations. It was clear to me early in life that justice and peace could only be found if people learned how to break free from the entrapment of fear, anger and violence—the three emotions that were the driving force behind the evil that seemed to control American culture. That’s why I started volunteering at the campus help center at S.D.S.U. It was a place where scared, lonely, addicted and suicidal students sought refuge. It was here that I got my feet wet using many of the skills I use in my practice and teach in my workshops today—more than 30 years later.
