Publisher's Summary

In her third and most important work, Juliet Diaz, the best-selling author of Witchery, offers an approach to magic, spirituality, and healing like no other and takes listeners through the deep work of decolonizing their spirituality.

The Altar Within: A Radical Devotional to Liberate the Divine Self is a work of spiritual revolution for all peoples, offering them practices and rituals in the arts of self-worship, self-discovery, and self-activism. The Altar Within is like no other approach to spirituality, breaking through the vicious cycles of harmful and toxic spiritual practices and beliefs. Diaz speaks for those victimized and enslaved by colonization and offers a new take on personal development based in the resounding plea of our ancestors to live our divined lives, the ones they could not have for themselves.

In the book, Diaz leads the listener through an exploration of:

  • Self-worship: Here, the listener comes to ritualize the experiences of self-compassion, mindfulness, self-acceptance, and radical self-honesty, creating practices that help them to see their divinity and altar within. Through these rites, listeners will have a better understanding of what it means to decolonize their spirituality, giving birth to new spiritual practices while honoring the experiences of our ancestors. Dismantling the idea that divinity must only exist from without, Diaz takes listeners on a journey of powerful self-worship, connecting them into the divinity that resides within all of us.
  • Self-discovery: In this section, Diaz helps the listener to discover their divined lives, but in a way that most teachers haven't offered. As Diaz shares, it isn't through our achievements that we find our purpose but through understanding the divine self. Here, Diaz leads listeners through practices in self-love, self-patience, and self-forgiveness, helping them to experience the stillness and wholeness needed to hear the messages shared by the divine.
  • Self-activism: Unlike traditional manifestation teachers, Diaz recognizes that manifestations are not brought forth by #goodvibesonly but by a real and committed process of activism, standing in our deep worth and sharing our humanity. In this section, Diaz offers a series of devotionals to guide listeners in the practice of community care, connecting the work not only with the magic of manifestation but with our communities, our ancestors, and the divine self within.

Pushing back on #lightandlove and #goodvibesonly, Diaz dismantles the wellness industry, releasing listeners from the practice of spiritual bypassing into a far more powerful experience of self, healing, hope, and spirit. This book is for anyone, including those who can't afford to buy all the tools, pay for the expensive memberships, people who have real-life issues, illnesses, and hardships. Through The Altar Within, Diaz brings the magic to real life, acknowledging our humanness by connecting with our spirit.

The Altar Within will help listeners create success in every area of their lives - from wealth, health, relationships, and personal development, to the nourishment of their relationship with the divine self. As Diaz explains, when we can finally decolonize our spiritual beliefs, divinity can be a super force in our lives, making us whole, stronger, wiser, and setting us on a path of transcendent activism. 

In this life-changing work, Juliet offers listeners a collection of rituals, ceremonies, meditations, daily exercises, journaling, and subconscious and mindset techniques to take their spiritual and magical practice to the next level, healing deep trauma and finally living their divine lives.

Great book! wish It came with PDF

Love love love! Really put into words what I’ve been trying to express for a long time. I really wish the audio came with a pdf so us audio listeners could get the full experience with the QR codes and journal prompts.

Here for it!

Yes, at the beginning of the book Juliet speaks on colonialism and appropriation. I didn't know what these terms meant. I decided to look them up and continued listening. When she speaks out for people of color it gave me the chills. I know it in my soul that this was meant to be written and I as well as many others are meant to read it. I'm trusting in my intuition. don't let things that confuse you stop you from anything in this world. You are divinely powerful friends ❤️

Disappointed

I absolutely loved Juliet's first two books! I was so excited when I heard this one was coming out and I couldn't wait to get it. I will be completely honest, I didn't get too far in the book before I decided I just couldn't anymore. I couldn't even finish it. I didn't even get halfway through.
In the very beginning when she brought up race and gender, I was a little confused and wondered what that had to do with our own spiritual path. It caught me off guard, but I thought "okay, I'll just keep listening. Maybe just a statement she felt she had to make." But then I heard it again....and again. I personally just don't know what race and gender have to do with our spiritual path. I guess this particular book just wasn't for me.

Decolonizing self care

I love this. I can’t wait to get my hands on the hard copy but listening to Juliet’s voice guiding through the process is comforting and relaxing.

Not for me.

I find that listening to an audio book during my daily work commute keeps me grounded and in a level headspace, but I feel this book isn’t for me. It contains lot of #hashtag #talk, and in my opinion, isn’t very eloquently written (or spoken), and it seemed to go in circles. Although I have very much enjoyed the authors previous work.

Spoke to my soul

I’ve been trying to work on my spiritual self for years with various degrees of success and struggle. This book has shaken me to my core. It’s like this was written just for me. I was in tears before she even finished the introduction.

Life changing

Thank you Juliet for speaking truth. We as the white colonizers we are need to be held accountable. And even though I am a white woman, I never slighted or hurt by what was written. I appreciate truth because someone speaking truth, is speaking love. Thank you Juliet.
