The End of Stress

Four Steps to Rewire Your Brain

About The Book

Rid yourself of stress and live a richly beautiful life filled with the joy you deserve! Using a simple method, The End of Stress shows you how to change your brain’s default reaction from stress, anxiety, and depression to calm, creativity, and happiness.

Have you been struggling with your levels of stress, unable to escape it completely? It’s not your fault. We were brought up in a fear-based, shame-based culture that wired our brains’ default systems to stress and fear—triggering all sorts of stress reactions that sabotage happiness, compromise health, and block our potential to flourish. If ignored too long, long-term stress can become deadly, resulting in a build-up of toxic stress hormones in your body, shrinking your brain mass and lowering optimum brain function, depressing your emotional set point, and shortening your lifespan.

There’s now proof that the deadly long-term effects of stress are reversable and The End of Stress provides four steps to better achieve success and happiness. This specific shift literally rewires the brain to deliver the full measure of intelligence, creativity, and emotional balance that enables you to thrive instead of struggle.

The End of Stress: Four Steps to Rewire Your Brain guides you through an evidence-based process that achieves this powerful shift. This book is designed as a workshop-in-a-book, supported by a website of tools, audio files, and materials that can help create a new and healthier you!

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
