"I learned that it is important to honor your inner child and to access your higher power/Spirit on a regular basis. This is critical if we want to find a true balance in our life." LA Workshop 9-10/01
"I've had 'Inner Bonding' (the book) for over six months, read it and started practicing what I learned from it. Being able to attend the workshop was a continuation badly needed. The personal delivery of all the information, the sharing of Margaret's experience and the 'sessions' carried during the workshop, added a special dimension to what I got from her book. [Margaret is] a wonderful, sensitive human being, to say nothing of her wit and quick mind!" Toronto Workshop, April, 2000
"I have a sense of direction now about healing myself that I never had before. Margaret was fantastic."
"I really enjoyed this workshop. It was very informative & helpful in helping me to overcome my 'victim' mentality and helping me to take responsibility in my life for my own feelings & happiness." Kripalu Workshop, 9/08
'This workshop was transformative for me. It gave me insight into how my wounded self is operating in my life. Best of all, I learned tools to help me heal my wounded self and to finally begin to love myself.' Kripalu Workshop, 9.15 - Lenox, MA
'Margaret is a truly gifted Facilitator working with a transforming body of work. I've been on a journey of personal discovery for almost 20 years, but got insights from this workshop which were new and insightful for the first time. I actually went somewhere in the guided meditation on day one and on day two I was able to have an inner dialogue I've not experienced before. This was very meaningful. I also enjoyed and got great benefit from the breakout sessions with my group.' LA Workshop, 3.7.10
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
