About The Author

Don Joseph Goewey is the executive director of the Center for Spiritual Exchange, the official archive for the works of Anthony De Mello. Prior to that, Don managed the department of psychiatry at Stanford University Medical School and directed the Center for Attitudinal Healing (CAH), where he helped pioneer a psycho-spiritual approach to overcoming catastrophic life events. At CAH, Don worked with people faced with some of the most stressful situations on earth, including people facing terminal illness, parents struggling with the loss of a child, prisoners serving life sentences, and refugees of the genocidal war in Bosnia struggling with extreme post- traumatic stress. For its breakthrough approach, CAH was awarded the Excellence in Medicine citation by the American Medical Association.

Don also spent six years directing a think tank that integrated breakthroughs in neuroscience into a psychospiritual model for rewiring the brain to extinguish stress reactions and amplify the higher brain function that enables a human being to flourish. The model has been successfully applied in the high-pressure work environments of Fortune 100 companies. For more information on The End of Stress, please visit
