Daily InspirationWe come to this planet to be all that we can be - not to limit others or be limited by others. Have the courage to leave those who desire to limit you. Seek to only be with others who fully support your freedom and what brings you joy. Seek to fully support the joy and freedom of others. By Dr. Margaret Paul
"Having completed an Inner Bonding workshop it was very rewarding and made me feel like a different person. Because of Inner Bonding I have a better understanding of my inner child, my loving adult and intent to open to love. I will continue Inner Bonding to go deeper into my Guidance for directions." Kripalu Workshop, Lenox, MA, 2009
'As a 15 year old going to this Workshop with my Mom, I was obviously skeptical about whether it would be a huge waste of time or not. But after meeting some of the people and getting to know them, I realized that my age changed nothing. I was treated the same way. And I guess that made me open enough to get what I needed out of the experience. I feel so much more mentally prepared to take things on and I never thought I'd have that.' Rowe, MA Workshop, 5.12
"The workshop brought together many concepts I had been exploring. It increased my understanding of the connections. It has helped me come to terms with the concept of powerlessness & lack of control. It has helped me to identify why it is so important to love & care for yourself and has given me the tools to learn how to love & care for myself." L.A. Workshop, 1/08
"This is my 6th Inner Bonding Group Experience (Workshops and Intensives) and the review was alive for me and inspiring, deepening my practice and commitment to taking loving action for my highest good. It is like reading wisdom literature -- the words come alive in different ways, reaching into your heart in new places, transforming you anew." L.A. Weekend Workshop, 11/04
"I am a therapist with 25 years of experience, have been in long term therapy in the past, do yoga, shinkiko (energy work), exercise & generally take care of myself, but found the workshop so helpful in fully illuminating my self-abandonment tendencies - I came here with my friend who lost her husband & child - to support her and to learn the technique for my practice, but found it so important for me." Kripalu Workshop, Lenox, MA, 10/09
"Wonderful! I learned so much intellectually, even though I've read 3 of the books! I learned so much experientially." Rowe Weekend Workshop, 5/06
The Inner Bonding Workshop offers a definitive technology for developing a spiritually-connected loving inner Adult that becomes the loving parent to ourselves that we may have never had.
Unless we were raised by parents or caregivers who were loving to themselves, each other and to us, we have not learned to be loving Adults. As a result, we operate from our ego wounded selves, controlled by our fears and false beliefs.
The wounded part of us often takes over in unloving ways, tramples on our hurts, shuts them out, or covers them up. This internal split creates the serious self-destructive patterns many of us face, such as:
- Addictions to: drugs, food, nicotine, alcohol, relationships, work or sex.
- Codependence: trying to control others with anger, violence, guilt or compliance.
- Fears of: rejection, abandonment, aloneness, engulfment or failure.
Dr. Margaret Paul and other Inner Bonding Facilitators demonstrate
"Transformational Beyond Words! My heart and soul and true essence overflow with love and gratitude. I'm so eager and excited to go home and do Inner Bonding, and share this with my husband and son, and most of all MYSELF at any given moment." Kripalu Workshop, 9/08, Margaret Dean Godhard, Mom, Educator, Gainesville, GA
