“[Soul Without Shame] is not only a study of the inner critic and how to deal with it, but a clear presentation of how this work can be done in a way that actually helps reveal our true and spiritual nature. In other words, it demonstrates how the work on the inner critic can become a path toward realizing true conscience—the essential conscience of which the inner critic is merely a limited imitation. Byron has also succeeded in demonstrating how the work with the inner critic and the arising of inner spiritual states are related, and how they contribute to and support each other.  – A. H. Almaas


In this free recording, A. H. Almaas, founder of the Diamond Approach, and Byron Brown, originator of Soul Without Shame, explore ways the Diamond Approach can help us begin to directly address our inner judge and use true strength, compassion, and awareness to reclaim what the judge has taken from us. Also learn more about the online course Soul Without Shame: Exploring the Nature of Self-Judgment that can help us disengage from the judgment process through understanding and deliberate action.

A. H. Almaas is the pen name of A. Hameed Ali, founder of the Diamond Approach to Self-Realization, a contemporary teaching that developed within the context of both ancient spiritual teachings and modern depth psychology theories. Almaas has authored eighteen books about spiritual realization, including the Diamond Heart series, The Pearl Beyond PriceThe Void, and The Alchemy of Freedom. He is the founder of the Ridhwan School for Spiritual Development, an inner work school devoted to the realization of True Nature. The orientation of the school is directed toward guiding students to realize their true nature to the fullest realization and further still to endless enlightenment.

Byron Brown has been a Diamond Approach teacher since 1990. He leads groups, works with individuals, and trains teachers in the Ridhwan School. He has taught workshops on the superego across the US and in Europe for the last twenty years. His book, Soul Without Shame: A Guide to Liberating Yourself from the Judge Within, was published in 1999 by Shambhala Publications.
