Wow, I did not know that. I assumed that none of Anthony de Mello's conferences had ever been taped, but it turns out that YouTube has a ton of his videos. He was a Jesuit from India that died in 1987, and was the author of Awareness, among other books (but if you had to pick one to read it would be Awareness). His unorthodox style (referencing the Buddha, Sufism, removing attachments etc.) got a kind of a reprimand in 1998 from the Church, assumedly because they didn't want a new generation of Catholics talking and thinking like he did.
