About Don Joseph Goewey
Don Joseph Goewey has committed his life to helping people understand and reduce stress, navigate challenges, and live happier, more fulfilled lives. Outside of his own coaching and writing, Don serves as the executive director of the DeMello Spirituality Center. In his role as Executive Director of this nonprofit organization, Don’s primary responsibility is to spread the teachings of Anthony DeMello across the world.
Throughout his career, Don has worked with some of the most stressful situations on earth – with 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. These experiences led him to author the Amazon bestseller, “The End of Stress ~ Four Steps to Rewiring Your Brain” which is based on breakthroughs in neuroscience that facilitate the specific shift in mindset that changes brain structure to quiet stress reactions and amplify the higher brain function that predicts greater success and happiness in life.
Prior to joining the DeMello Spirituality Center, Don served as the director of a human performance firm where he focused on alleviating stress and elevating the experience of work. Don previously managed of the department of psychiatry at Stanford Medical School, ran a regional emergency medical services system, and for twelve years headed ICAH, which received the 2005 Excellence in Medicine Award from the American Medical Association for pioneering a breakthrough approach to overcoming catastrophic life events. He also spent six years directing a research effort that integrated breakthroughs in neuropsychology into a model that changes brain structure to extinguish stress reactions and amplify the higher brain function that enables a human being to flourish. The model has achieved outstanding results in high pressure organizations.
