Daily Inspiration

If you have given and given to others and have not received love in return, consider that you may be giving to get from a empty place within, rather than giving from an inner place that is overflowing with love. Turn your attention to filling your own emptiness first, and you will find yourself finally feeling loved.

'The Inner Bonding Workshop has allowed me the freedom to spread my wings.  For many years I felt like a bird locked in a cage.  I possess this God given talent of flight however I'm confined to this tiny cage.  Inner Bonding helps to raise your Spiritual I.Q. so that you may figure out how to unlock this cage and begin to do what God has put us here to do…FLY.' LA Workshop, 3.7.10

'I came to this weekend not knowing anything about Inner Bonding, but came with some wounded self issues that were fresh and intense.  I found the workshop overwhelming at first, and by the end, I now have a sense of who I am and can be as a loving adult.  I'm looking forward to joy and creativity!' Rowe, MA Workshop, 4/08

"I recognized this process as tough love for myself. Because I embraced it even feeling the risk and fear of finding out about myself, I am awakened, being transformed and my life commitment now is to Being and giving Love. Thank you." Omega Workshop, 5/04

'This has felt life changing for me. I met my Inner Child for the first time. Really heard her. I now realize that a lifetime of abandoning myself has caused a lot of pain. I am grateful for the concrete tools to begin to develop a Loving Adult that can listen to and pay attention to a long neglected core self. Thank you!' Southern California Weekend Workshop, 4.13

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
