The Journey Within — Embracing Self-Judgement



Dear Truth Seekers,

Welcome to the “The Journey Within” newsletter, which talks about how working with psychedelics, we embark on a profound exploration of self-judgment and its transformative power. We get to delve into the realm of spirituality and self-reflection, shedding light on the importance of understanding and embracing our inner judgements. By doing this work, we embark on this enlightening journey together!


1. The Nature of Self-Judgement:

We get to reflect on the nature of self-judgement and its impact on our spiritual growth. See and feel how our inner critic can either hinder or facilitate our progress, and learn to discern between healthy self-assessment and self-destructive judgements. By doing this we get to acknowledge our feelings and feel into how our body feels in response to our inner critic.


“Be faithful to that which is exists within yourself.” 

Andre Gide


2. Embracing Compassion:

Compassion towards oneself is a vital aspect of spiritual development. We get to explore practices and techniques to cultivate self-compassion, allowing us to approach self-judgement with kindness, understanding, and forgiveness.


3. Breaking Free from Limiting Beliefs:

Our self-judgements often arise from deeply ingrained limiting beliefs. Psychedelics can guide you through a process of identifying and challenging these beliefs, empowering you to transcend them and open doors to personal transformation.


4. The Gift of Self-Reflection:

Self-judgement, when approached with mindful reflection, can become a powerful tool for growth. When we explore practices pre, during and post psychedelic session, such as journaling, meditation, and introspection, it enables us to engage in constructive self-reflection.


“One of the best guides to how to be self-loving is to give ourselves the love we are often dreaming about receiving from others.” 

Bell Hooks


5. The Path to Self-Acceptance:

True self-acceptance lies beyond judgement. We get to delve into practices and perspectives that nurture self-acceptance, helping you recognize your inherent worth and embrace your authentic self.


6. Inspirational Stories:

Working in a group and also post-integration groups, we share stories of the individuals who have embarked on their own journeys of self-judgement and self-discovery. These uplifting narratives offer insights, inspiration, and guidance for those navigating their own path towards self-acceptance.

7. Cultivating Self-Love:

Self-judgement diminishes when we cultivate a deep sense of self-love. We provide practical techniques and affirmations to nurture self-love, fostering a compassionate and nurturing relationship with ourselves.


. Community Corner:

We invite you to share your experiences with self-judgement and self-acceptance. What practices have helped you on your journey? How have you transformed your relationship with self-judgement? Your insights and stories are valuable contributions to our growing community.  Integrating your psychedelic work by surrounding yourself with supportive and loving people is just as important as doing the medicine.  


“We are each gifted in a unique and important way. It is our privilege and our adventure to discover our own special light.” 

Mary Dunbar


Remember, self-judgement is an opportunity for growth and self-awareness. Embrace the path of self-discovery with compassion, and may this edition of “The Journey Within” inspire you to transcend self-judgement and embrace the love and light that resides within.
