Judgement Detox by Gabrielle Bernstein
Genre: Non-Fiction | 240 Pages | Published:
Book Jacket Synopsis:
From featured “next-generation thought leader” on Oprah Winfrey’s Super Soul 100 and #1 New York Times bestselling author Gabrielle Bernstein comes a clear, proactive, step-by-step program to rid yourself of the tendency to judge yourself and others, and find your way back to true healing and oneness.
Judgment—both being judged and judging others—is the core of our discomfort. While it’s powerful, judgment isn’t complicated. It’s simply the separation from oneness. The moment we see ourselves as separate we detour into a false belief system that is out of alignment with our true nature. That separation, often a reflection of our own insecurities projected onto others, keeps us feeling alienated and alone.
The Judgment Detox is an interactive process that calls on spiritual principles from the text A Course in Miracles, Kundalini yoga, meditation, EFT, and metaphysical teachings, allowing us to release the beliefs that hold us back from living a better life. Gabby has demystified these principles to make them easy to apply and commit to.
The six steps include:
-Witness your judgment without judgment
-Honor the wound
-Put love on the alter
-See for the first time
-Cut the cords
-Bring your shadows to light
This step-by-step process offers a path to true healing, oneness, and a deeper connection to the universe and those around us.

Review & Thoughts: I enjoyed the author’s voice as she narrated the book, however this wasn’t a book I would recommend on audio. There were practices discussed in the book that require both hands and some that needed eyes closed for meditation. The author’s voice was soothing and calm but I didn’t get a lot out of it due to the way I listened; I tend to listen to audiobooks while driving and doing things around the house like laundry and dishes.
If I’d read the physical book I may have enjoyed this more or if I’d listened to the audio while sitting in a chair with my hands free. I’d be interested in reading her other books but would only consider a print or digital version if it has meditation in it.
I liked the overall concept of finding light and love, offering forgiveness, and releasing judgement from our lives in order to embrace the light and love. If you’re looking for an everyday combination method of tapping and meditation, this book may offer good guidance on your path. If you’re looking for more of an inspirational specific book this might not be the one for you.
Recommend for: those looking for part inspiration part guided meditation
