Freedom to Be Yourself Mastering the Inner Judge ~Avikal E. Costantino

Inner judge, superego, barking dog are some of the different names for that presence that judges and evaluates every aspect of our inner and outer experience. The judgment is so fundamental to the way we function that we not only take it for granted, but accept it even when it is the cause of great suffering, misunderstanding and conflict.

Many traditions take this presence to be one of the greatest obstacles on the spiritual path and in the endeavour of personal realisation.

In Freedom to be Yourself, Avikal E. Costantino uses his more than thirty years experience of psychological and spiritual seeking to unravel the way this judge works and to show how it limits personal growth, sexuality, affective and work relationships, as well as any original expression of our potential. He provides exercises and inquiry to recognise the presence of the judge in daily life and to begin the concrete transformation in our capacity of loving, creativity and individuality.


Avikal E. Costantino is spiritual teacher, poet and martial artist. Curiosity, passion and love for the truth guide his life and teaching. He is director of the Integral Being Institute active in Europe, Asia and Australia. Avikal worked as an anthropologist and a free-lance photographer. His love for Martial Arts, which he began in 1970, took him to teaching Aikido and Sword in 1987, while his love for the body produced diplomas and professional activity in Shiatsu, Yu-Ki and Seitai (healing techniques). In 1983 Avikal becomes a disciple of the Indian Mystic Osho and from 1988 to 1990, when Osho leaves the body, he is also his personal photographer. From 1989 to 1994 he is the director of the Osho School for Centering and Zen Martial Arts in the Multiversity in Osho’s commune in Pune, India. Being involved with Zen and Advaita for more than 25 years, he leads retreats such as Satori and The Awareness Intensive. These retreat are focussed on the existential question “Who am I?”. Since 1997 he has developed an innovative and original approach to the work with the Inner Judge and he is a well known teacher of Essence and Ennegram. He is also a Life-coach, Management Trainer and Executive Mentor working with presence, leadership, resilience and conflict resolution in Italy and Australia. Avikal is also a poet.

Making of a Mystic: Writing as a Form of Spiritual Emergence by Paddy Fievet (Author)

When Life Cried Out is a courageous woman’s amazing adventure as she surrendered to the Spiritual to discover what life and self-love are all about. As you journey with the author through fearful agoraphobia experiences, profound metaphysical escapades, and mystical revelations, the adventure turns prophetic as it touches the heart of the reader. The story not only speaks to the heart of spiritual seekers, but also insightful passages remain within the soul of the reader long after the book has been completed. It is a must-read for anyone who seeks to understand life at higher levels.


Born so deep in the South that the Okefenokee Swamp was in her backyard and swatting mosquitoes was a local pastime, Paddy Fievet is a happily married, free-spirited, modern mystic who understands intuition as the language of the soul. The author of five books (three of which were previously published, WHEN LIFE CRIED OUT is currently released, and MAKING OF A MYSTIC is to be published later this year), her writing has an interesting introspective twist along with a strong mystical aspect, appealing to adventurous spirituality seekers. Like Thomas Edison, she successfully discovered 10,000 things that would not work in her life before she finally had a profound “light bulb” moment: Life is a Sacred Story.

During an intense spiritual awakening, she traveled extensively, experiencing profound mysticism in Ireland, a soul’s journey in Auschwitz, the feminine spirit in Malta, and Unity while sitting in the Great Pyramid. During these and more insightful spiritual experiences, she gradually understood joy, authenticity, and love are truly experienced from the inside out. Paddy’s studies include a PhD in Metaphysics with a focus on the integration of mind, body and spirit.

Writing as a Form of Spiritual Emergence

In her book The Making of a Mystic, Paddy Fievet discovered to her own astonishment that there’s a Modern Mystic in everyone. At the beginning of a rather profound, spiritual awakening, Paddy Fievet attended a weekend seminar on accessing intuition at the home of a friend. She amazed herself by not only participating in the exercises to awaken her sixth sense, but by completing the exercises successfully. The last lesson of the day changed everything she knew about what is possible through God.

We journey with the guest through fearful agoraphobia experiences, profound metaphysical escapades, and mystical revelations. The story not only speaks to the heart of spiritual seekers, but also insightful passages remain within the soul of the reader long after the book has been completed. It is a must-listen for anyone who seeks to understand life at higher levels.
