    I’m upset! Where do I even start. First of all, I’ve read of all berstein’s book and not a fan per say, but somehow ended up riding along her popularity. Some of them are good, most of them not so good. And you guys, I love self-help, personal-development, and spirituality books, so I’ve read it all, heard it all. She’s certainly been through a lot and is brave for sharing her experiences, but I find that many of her teachings, ideas, a...

    Bernstein dials back on the mysticism of her earlier works enough to make Judgment Detox accessible even to skeptics like me. The book provides a simple yet effective technique for identifying and eradicating resentment and its toxic effects from your day to day life. (Docked one star for the shout out she gives to Joel Osteen who this Houstonian isn’t yet enlightened enough to forgive for keeping his church closed during Harvey.)

    Three stars but really this was between a 2 1/2 and 3. I thought the book was ok, and I did like it, but I find after having read a lot of her books, it is a lot of the same information recycled and re worded. There is certainly nothing earth shattering in the content, but there are a lot of great reminders of concepts I am already familiar with so overall, a pleasant read.

    Did not find much of valuePurchased this book after hearing the author on a podcast. It is a subject that I am quite interested on different levels but this book provided little information that I found helpful. The author seems to borrow many ideas without exhibiting much real depth of understanding. While her candid self revelations might be refreshing for some I was somewhat taken aback by her seeming lack of mastery on a subject she was autho...

    There have been a couple of Gabby’s books which literally were life changing for me. This wasn’t one of them. The first half felt forced and I almost didn’t finish it. I’m glad that I did, because I did feel that some of the last chapters were helpful.

    I couldn’t finish it. Right out of the pen the book started casting normal human behavior (from a social psychology perspective) as potentially “toxic.” There’s a certain degree of naiveté you have to have in order to approach this book. I guess you could say I failed the judgment detox. I’m okay with that 👌

    I've read most of Gabby Bernstein's books, and Judgment Detox will satisfy readers who love her forthright but loving teaching style. And like her other books, it will challenge readers to face plenty of uncomfortable thoughts and moments with the ultimate goal of freeing them from that unnecessary emotional weight.What I like best about this book is that she clearly and thoughtfully takes readers through techniques to acknowledge and address the...

    The concept of judgement holding us back is thought-provoking, Gabby makes it relatable & easy to understand giving a toolbox full of actionable directions to guide us back to a joyful & serene existence.

    A relatable, unexpectedly relevant follow up to ‘A New Earth;’ which I finished a few weeks back. I’m so glad I found this gem. I loved Eckhart Tolle’s wisdom, but putting things into practice on a relatable level is something this book guides you through with simplicity and approachability. As I stumbled through Gabby’s 6 steps of judgement detox, I could almost instantly feel the freedom associated with forgiveness, which was much nee...

    Every few years, I come upon a book that is life changing. I read this at the right time for me. All the puzzle pieces are clicking into place. The Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) exercises, the prayers, the meditations and the journal that comes with it all have transformed how I am living my life. At first I thought, how can I do this? Not judge anyone for anything? Jeez. That is impossible. Especially self judgment. I am my harshest critic. ...

    A spiritual activist, Bernstein writes that the act of judgment or judging others is an addiction response to deep-rooted trauma. By choosing this fear and separation instead of love, we become disassociated from our truth. This leads to an obsession with an outward projection of who we think we are.By healing judgment we're forced to live in reality and accept unconditional love. Bernstein offers a series of steps such as meditation that lead to...

    This was the first Gabrielle Bernstein book that I have read. I found the concepts very interesting and it was a great guide for me into starting to meditate more. I think this book is a great complement to your faith, whatever it is, and helps you connect to yourself on more of a spiritual level. ---To find yourself spiritually. I love the concept of the inner spirit guide and I found the tapping technique to release negative energy and judgemen...

    I am judgmental, a grudge-holder. I strive to be more compassionate with myself and others. This book gives six steps that, when practiced, lead one away from judgment and towards live.While I’ve not begun my own judgment detox, having read this book over the past week, I plan to go back and follow the steps. Journaling and meditation are two practices I’ve long wanted to do successfully, and tapping has interested me after hearing about it o...

    I cannot get into this book. It's written like a church sermon - lots of discussion of prayer examples and 'going into the light'. Also, her examples are ludicrous. She lost me completely at page 39 in her example of how you might judge academic know-it-alls because when you where in 6th grade, the smart popular boy you had a crush on told you that you were stupid. I shut the book at that point and will happily return it to the library, the remai...

    Once again, Gabby doesn’t disappoint. No truly new information, just great reminders in the tone of a chat with a good friend. A spiritual pep talk, if you will, and encouragement to stay on the path.

    If you’re looking at this cover and thinking “Nah, I’m good. I don’t need to read this,” that means you should! Excellent book with tips you can apply immediately. Release your judgment through the powerful tapping exercise. I was surprised to find myself crying as I did it. What a release! Judgment - especially self judgment - is a work in progress, but this book will help you let some of that $hi* go. 🙌🏻

    I found this to have a lot of truth that I can pull out and use within the Christian world view through which I process life. It was pan-theistic to a degree that I felt somewhat uncomfortable buying into it fully.I voluntarily read an advanced review copy provided by the publisher via Netgalley and offer my honest opinion in response.

    I put myself on hold for this book and thought - hmmmm whatever. But after listening to this book, I want to buy it and go through all her steps. Just the past few days I have noticed myself "judging" in ways that I never would have characterized it as "judging' before but I can see how it does nothing to benefit anyone and instead just makes me miss out on amazing things. Anyone want to be my check-in partner and go through the whole process tog...

    I’ve been a fan of Gabby Bernstein for a while. This is the first of her books that I’ve read. I had really high expectations for this book because I’ve heard so many rave reviews about her other books. I was a little disappointed. Some parts of the book were not as enlightening as I anticipated. I read one of the top reviews for the book, and it said that parts of the book felt forced, and I agree. I also wish she had left the short portio...

    Full disclosure--I haven't finished this yet. I may never finish this book. It may not be the sort of book a person is ever meant to finish and shelve away. This book is hard. It requires you to go deep within yourself and evaluate your own judgement--without judging. See? Hard. This book makes me realize how often I judge myself and other people and how reliant I have been upon judgement to numb my pain.What this book does is makes you aware of ...

    Like others say, it's difficult to judge a book about judgement. I think when it is uncomfortable, it is a really good sign that we need to dig deeper within ourselves why we feel this way. What do we need to work on? What needs to change? How can we improve? I listened to this book on audible and probably would have preferred to read the physical book too, to facilitate the exercises better. But there is nothing wrong with the audio version. Thi...

    This is the first book I’ve read from this author, and I enjoyed it. The title grabbed my attention, so I instantly set my own expectations for the content. There is a lot of great advice that can apply to anyone as long as the reader heeds the warning not to judge the spiritual perspective. We all have difference religious/belief backgrounds and could easily get tripped up over the definition of God and/or Holy Spirit. If you are capable of re...

    I really needed to read this book and to learn some more techniques to let specific things go, stop judging myself and others, and learn the practice of forgiveness. I have found the approaches outlined to be helpful and I am having success. Would have preferred less on the “miracles” (yes, that was judgmental). Having said that, the book does allow for all manner of spiritual belief and is not centred in any religion. Some quotes that have h...

    Once I stopped judging Gabrielle Bernstein for having her photo on the front cover...I fell in sync with her honest and forthright writing and wisdom. Without doing all of the suggested exercises, I was comforted and validated by the fact that we all judge, all of the time. We use a Walking Judge which only brings unhappiness and dissatisfaction. Bernstein gives many exercises, examples, and explanations (personal and professional), which I did a...

    I’ve been reading this through slowly to try and process the information as well as to stop myself from hurling it at the wall at times. I’ve got fairly mixed feelings about it.On the one hand, it presents an interesting perspective on how to catch yourself in judgement and how to shift your views. On the other hand, a lot of the advice was to offer it up to the spirit/universe/God/flying spaghetti monster and let them take care of the rest.A...

    I wanted to put this book down a third of the way through but I thought, am I judging this book? I finished reading it and still felt the same way as I did in the first few chapters: the topic is important but what you get out of this book really depends on how you feel about the author. Bernstein spends time relating anecdotes from her life and work that may resonate with fans but fell flat for me. I won't be using her "6 Step" techniques for re...

    This book was okay. There were parts that I found interesting like when she told personal stories, but a lot of it felt like repeated material from other books I’ve read. I didn’t hate it, but I didn’t find it very compelling. I think she has written better material.I do appreciate receiving this book as a giveaway and wish I could say that I loved it, but I didn’t. ***I received this book as a complimentary Goodreads giveaway.***

    Both practical and spiritual, this book gives tips on releasing judgment and accepting our natural state of love: for ourselves and all other beings.Favorite quote: “When one person remembers their true nature, they light up the world.”

    I always enjoy Gabrielle’s work. While there wasn’t anything tremendously new in Judgement Detox (being honest!), I found her study of judgement timely and helpful.

    I had high hopes for this read. She lost me when she said the pain of the far right was the same as oppressed groups in the US. This book drips in a white privileged worldview and is eye roll worthy.
