Inner Work 057: Spiritual Bypassing

Robert Augustus Masters defines the term “spiritual bypassing” as a collection of behaviors and beliefs through which we use spirituality to avoid life. Some of these behaviors include anger-phobia, boundaries that are too strict or too porous, emotional numbing, and over-detachment from life.

When we engage in spiritual bypassing, we trick ourselves into believing that we’re healing and working through deep issues, but we’re actually only staying on the surface of what’s really going. In this episode, I invite you to explore the key behaviors of spiritual bypassing so you can move beyond them into deeper, more transformative, and long-lasting healing.

Masters’ book can be found here: Spiritual Bypassing.
