Daily Inspiration

When someone behaves in a way you don't like, you have only three choices: accept them while compassionately embracing your feelings, open to learning to reach understanding and acceptance, or accept that their behavior is not tolerable to you and leave. Changing them is not an option, for only they can change themselves, and only if they want to.


"1. Tremendous amount of meaningful information, great wisdom. 2. Very thorough written materials; the most comprehensive and insightful checklists of patterns I've ever found. 3. The leader provided personal examples from her own journey, and answered our questions about how to use the process. 4. I feel very satisfied, and eager to incorporate this process as my very own spiritual practice. I was hopeful for this! 5. Flexible approach as to how we see or define our inner guides." 4/2002 - Rowe Conference Center - Rowe, MA

"Very informative & encouraging experience that shed light to provide self insight into my fears and provides tools to learn a path of courage, love, acceptance of self and motivation to continue to learn." L.A. Workshop, 1/08
Rachel Monderer

'I learned the difference between my wounded self & my inner child, the difference between answers, & learning by doing the work, & direct knowing.  The difference between taking, giving & sharing love, the intention behind my actions to gain control to get love, avoid pain & feel safe.  I know I have a lot to do, but as Margaret said it is never too late.'  Weekend Workshop - Anaheim Hills, CA 3.14

"It felt so very safe and each person was so full of love and support for each other. It was a place to feel your pain." Los Angeles Workshop, Sept. 1999
Robyne Harrington

"My experience is mystical. I now have a tool that allows me to LOVE and receive LOVE. What's profound is that I've learned that it all begins with setting the intention to learn about what's the loving action I should take for myself. To ACCESS my Spiritual Guidance. That my Essence is not the false beliefs that I have held onto for 30 years. I am freeing myself. It's wonderful."
James Beard

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
