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.
