Daily InspirationToday, think about softness - the softness of your smile, of your kindness and caring, of the tenderness of your touch. There is such power in softness. Today, discern the difference between softness and weakness. Weakness is allowing others to run over you and control you. Softness is the result of a powerful loving Adult standing in your truth and being unafraid to express your love. By Dr. Margaret Paul
"Thank you! A wonderful taste of reconnecting with myself - a loving, gentle
weekend with some real tools to bring home." Rowe, MA, 4/04
"I was delightfully surprised to learn how all the different practices I do - Zen, 12-Step programs, reading other authors, and bodywork - are harmonious. I also heard the description of a past issue of someone else that resonated with my own experience. The anger process is something I've been looking for, for years. Finally something made sense." Toronto Workshop - Toronto, Canada - 4/2001
Anne Marie Jackson
"I was able to become more connected to myself and learned very helpful tools to start to take care of myself. I have been feeling very lost and abandoned during this past year & now realize that I had abandoned myself (just an observation, not a criticism)! I am very excited about bringing this all into my everyday life along with the Core Energetic training I am doing."
'Your calming, learned persona is very lovely to be around, and I feel hopeful and non-anxious about proceeding with this work.' Kripalu Workshop - Lenox, MA, 9.13
"This work is so profound for me, so healing. I was needing to be reconnected with Spirit and I think I've got it! Thanks."
"Transforming! I've learned so much about us! It far exceeded my expectations. I found it very helpful to be here with a close friend, and even more helpful to know we will continue to dialog about our experiences here. The people that I met here also helped to enhance the process! [Margaret was] exceptional. Very knowledgable, open, and safe. A very good listener." Rowe, MA Workshop, April 2000
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
