Unmasking the Inner Critic: Lessons for Living an Unconstricted Life November 1, 2022

Happy Tuesday, everyone!

This is a bit of a promotional post because my new book, Unmasking the Inner Critic: Lessons for Living an Unconstricted Life, is now officially available for purchase!


“In Unmasking the Inner Critic, Andrew Lang has created a beautiful and accessible guidebook to help you do the inner work central to the act of being human.”

—Brian D. McLaren, author, activist, and teacher with the Center for Action and Contemplation


Andrew Lang Unmasking the Inner Critic: Lessons for Living an Unconstricted Life


I wrote this book to help you:

  • do the work of inner excavation with spiritual practices that hold and embolden it,

  • dig deeper for a more authentic way of living and being who you truly are,

  • lay aside the masks that keep you from fully experiencing the world,

  • engage the inner life as the beginning of sustainable activism, and

  • live a healthier, more confident, and well-grounded life.

If this sounds like it might support you where you’re at on your journey, you can grab a copy here!

“Andrew compassionately reminds his readers we’re all in possession of inherent creativity, significance, and sacredness beyond what we may currently recognize or believe…We’re invited to release binding footholds and begin believing in the goodness that exists behind the critical masks we’ve long worn.”

—Sarah Southern, writer on spirituality


What Unmasking the Inner Critic is all about:

I’m not good enough. I’m not in control. I don’t know who I am.

These constrictions are brutal. But who among us hasn’t felt one of these constrictions at some point in their life?

Rooted in the teachings of mystics, saints, poets, and prophets, Unmasking the Inner Critic offers guidance and support for how to move beyond some of our most challenging fears and negative inner narratives.

With an intuitive blend of reflection questions, contemplative practices, action prompts, and his own personal story, Andrew Lang shares the wisdom from secular poets and therapists—as well as from Christianity, Buddhism, and Sufism—that has grounded his workshops for almost a decade.

The perfect book for progressive Christians, secular seekers, and those who are deconstructing Christianity, Unmasking the Inner Critic helps us expand our spirituality beyond the institution of religion for our personal transformation and communal healing.

Move beyond the inner narratives that hold you back and rediscover the world as deeply interconnected, filled with inherent dignity, and inviting us to embody something new.

Buy it now and get access to a free 3-week workshop series!

“Andrew reintroduces us to an ancient-mystic-remedy for the bodily aches of internalized messages such as lovelessness, earned worth, grasping for control, and the false choice of conquer or be conquered. His guide book is gentle, widely sourced, transparent, and prescient for these times.”

—Troy Bronsink, founder of The Hive: A Center for Contemplation, Art, and Action
