Daily InspirationA major challenge in staying conscious is to take loving action in your own behalf. As soon as you don't, it is likely you will feel numb or anxious, depressed or angry. The numbness is your inner child's way of not feeling the pain of the inner abandonment. The anxiety, depression or anger are your inner child's feelings that result from inner abandonment. Notice your feelings and take the appropriate loving action in your own behalf. By Dr. Margaret Paul
"This workshop was exactly what I needed. I trusted my Inner Guidance, which led me here. Through the workshop I learned that my loneliness is based in the truth that I wasn't heard or loved as a child. My loving adult now is open to loving my inner child/wounded self. Although I still desire to be in a loving partnership with a soul mate, I now know I don't need that soul mate to be loved - I truly know now that I am loved by myself and by God." Kripalu Workshop, Lenox, MA, 2009
" Very loving, respectful - very informative, both verbal and printed - the experiential parts were great!" Toronto Workshop - Toronto, Canada - 4/2001
"This has been a very healing day for me and the process has shown me my true potential. I realize that the only real choice is to move into Spirit because without it means working very hard at a solo effort." Los Angeles, May 2000
"I have never felt so energized by an experience. I feel the teacher arrived when me, the student, was ready. Margaret, you speak right to my Soul. Thank you for you." Toronto Workshop - Toronto, Canada - 4/2001
"Inner Bonding was explained clearly and fully. The activities were deeply moving and thought provoking. Excellent ratio of individual and group work." Los Angeles, May 2000
"[The workshop] really opened my eyes and my heart to compassion...around my addiction to shame. Helped me see the need to accept my helplessness over others. Margaret was excellent - outsides match insides - can see the work of the six steps in her life."
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, resulting in relationship problems.
- Fears of: rejection, abandonment, aloneness, engulfment or failure.
The Inner Bonding process provides a powerful roadmap for healing these issues.
"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
