Daily Inspiration

If people could read your mind, what would you not want them to know? Today, focus on thinking thoughts that you would be happy to share with others - thoughts that energize rather than deplete your being.

'It felt like such a warm, welcoming and nonjudgmental environment to go through the 6 Step process.  Margaret was so authentic, warm, real and gentle and created a safe space for me to process with my inner child and connect with my heart and God's presence again.  Best place to be!'  Weekend Workshop - Anaheim Hills, CA 3.14

"Wow! I got in touch with my inner child! It's me she's been angry, resentful, sad, joyful about - not the rest of the world. I have abandoned her, ignored her, paid no good attention to her - now I know where my efforts need to be directed - it's scary and enormously hopeful." Kripalu Workshop - Lenox, MA - 5/2001

"The workshop was an excellent introduction to this new world of spiritual connection. In just one weekend I feel that I was given the primary tools to refocus my energies and reconnect with my essence and spirit."
Elizabeth Ehrhardt

'I recognized the guidance part as integral to my healing and growth.  I had a couple of tremendous insights that were core for me and was affecting my relationship with myself and my daughter.  I feel very grateful for this teaching and expect my practice to be life changing.' Rowe, MA Workshop, 4/08
Mary Beth

Learning about acting with intent.  I think the frequent check-in with my inner child is so valuable.  We used to play a lot together - less over the years, so it is time to re-engage.  Sometime what I say is taken as an offense.  I realize I have to check in with my inner child- am I saying this to be hip, cool?  Or to be loving and sharing?

"Appreciate so much your authenticity!  I wasn't feeling too well, but got a lot out of the workshop - and felt it was thorough, beneficial and inspiring.  Was able to stay present, engaged, learned so much from the demos." Rowe, MA Workshop, 4/08.

Weekend Workshop

Heal the cycle of shame and self-abandonment that leads to anxiety, depression, addiction, aloneness and relationship failure. Discover how to love yourself rather than reject yourself, and learn to make your best decisions through consistent connection with your personal source of spiritual guidance.

The innovative Inner Bonding process shows you how to:

  • Rapidly heal false beliefs about yourself, others and God
  • Heal guilt, shame, emptiness and aloneness
  • Move beyond self-judgment into self-compassion
  • Address the resistance that may be keeping you stuck
  • Learn how to heal relationship conflicts and attain the intimacy you've always wanted

This powerful and life-changing process is the result of Dr. Margaret's 48 years of personal inner work and work with her clients.

Unless you were raised by parents or caregivers who were loving to themselves, each other and to you, you may not have learned how to lovingly manage your painful feelings. As a result, you may be operating from your ego wounded self, controlled by your fears and false beliefs.

Your wounded self may often take over in unloving ways, trampling on your hurts, ignoring them or avoiding them with various addictions and controlling behavior such as: 

  • Addictions to drugs, food, nicotine, alcohol, relationships, work, TV or video games.
  • Co-dependence - trying to control others with anger, violence, guilt or compliance - making others responsible for your sense of safety and worth.
  • Staying in your head rather than being present in your body
  • Self-judgment, shaming yourself
  • Obsessive thinking, ruminating
  • Resistance to self, others, Spirit - to taking loving care of yourself

These forms of self-abandonment perpetuate fears of rejection, abandonment, aloneness, engulfment or failure, which heal through the practice of Inner Bonding.

Through discussions, exercises and direct work with Dr. Margaret Paul or other Inner Bonding Facilitators, you learn the Six powerful Steps of Inner Bonding.

"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
