Anthony DeMello, a Roman Catholic of the Jesuit Order, was a prolific writer of stories, meditations, spiritual exercises and parables. Born in Bombay, India, he presented "Christian exercises in Eastern form" in an attempt to bridge the gap between east and west. His emphasis on living in the presence of God in the present moment was the centerpiece of the many retreats he held over the course of his lifetime.
DeMello's critique of the capacity of "religion" to interfere with our relationship with God has drawn criticism from various quarters, including the Vatican. In the penetrating introduction by fellow Jesuit William Dych and in his selection of deMello's essential writings, readers may assess for themselves the message of a true spiritual master for our times.

ANTHONY DE MELLO was a Jesuit priest born in Bombay, India in 1931. He is widely known for his ground-breaking and enduring work that integrates western and eastern spirituality. De Mello is the author of the bestselling masterpiece, Awareness, along with 11 other books that have been translated into 21 languages and have sold more than 2 million worldwide.
De Mellos most recent book, Stop Fixing Yourself / Wake Up! All is Well centers on his core assertion that you and I are OK exactly as we are. We are not a problem to be solved, nor is there anything we need to fix in ourselves. It is enough for us to simply be watchful and awake. By simply being aware, all that seems false and neurotic in us will drop, and our eyes will open to the reality of joy surrounding us.
His body of work continues to have impact beyond his untimely death in 1987, influencing acclaimed spiritual teachers such as Rhonda Byrne, Eckhart Tolle, Neil Strauss, Adyashanti, Thomas Moore, and Paulo Coelho.
