Daily InspirationToday, notice all self-judgment as a form of control. "If I judge myself, then others won't judge me." "If I judge myself, I can get myself to perform, to accomplish, to do it right - and then people will like me." "If I judge myself as being flawed and therefore the cause of others' rejecting behavior, I can continue the illusion that I cause - and therefore control - others' feelings and behavior." Today, notice your false beliefs about judgment and control. By Dr. Margaret Paul
"I came into this weekend scared of having to expose myself. I feared expressing my feelings of shame and guilt and embarrassment. I most especially was afraid to cry in front of others. I felt like I'd rather die than to be so vulnerable amongst strangers. But, after having participated this weekend I feel some of that fear has diminished and I now know that it's okay to cry without embarrassment or shame. I feel safe." LA Workshop 9/10/01
'I really enjoyed the workshop. It's a lot to take in - some I already knew from the website - but this really helped me to begin to integrate it all. It feels like a great starting place, or, I mean that I am excited for what this weekend is going to spark in me.' Kripalu Workshop - Lenox, MA, 9.13
"It was an incredible experience. It was far better than I could imagine. I can't believe the depth of feelings I accessed in two days. The combination of lecture and 6-Step session was very rich. Adding the group and pain sharing made it a great method for learning through the four strategies. Margaret was excellent: a top rank presenter, a good facilitator and wonderfully kind human being. She was generous with giving information and with sharing meaningful examples from her own life." L.A. Weekend Workshop, 11/04

"Life-altering. I've heard new concepts that helped me challenge my old ways of thinking and relating to myself and others. I am happy to share this moment with myself and my partner." L.A. Workshop, 1/08
'This was the greatest thing I ever did for myself. Taking this step forward knowing that I have a tool box with all the tools I need to start my Journey. I would recommend this to anyone that wants to start loving themselves.' Weekend Workshop - Kripalu - Lenox, MA 9.14
'I came into this workshop knowing only the information my Aunt fit into a 30 minute explanation before we came. Without having any background knowledge, I was able to gain a good grasp of the 6-step process and was able to truly experience more than I ever thought would be possible. Even if I were not to study this concept any further in the future, I feel like I have the tools to lead a more fulfilling life and love for myself because of this workshop.' Los Angeles Workshop, 1/09
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
