Daily InspirationThe avoidance of loneliness, heartbreak and helplessness over others and outcomes is often at the root of controlling, compliant, resistant or addictive behavior. It is helpful to learn to name the feeling we are trying to avoid. When we name it, we can allow it, acknowledge it, embrace it, bring love and compassion to it, and then release it to Spirit. Denying it keeps us stuck. Naming it allows us to manage it, release it and take loving action in our own behalf. By Dr. Margaret Paul
"I almost did not come back for the 2nd day but I'm so glad I did. I didn't really believe that there really was any help and relief from the feelings I'm having but I realize now that there is. I feel really hopeful and I'm excited to finally becoming my own best friend." L.A. Workshop, 12/06
"I found the workshop to be very inspirational. For the first time in awhile, I am starting to really take care of myself." Kripalu Workshop - Lenox, MA - 5/2001
'This workshop was exactly what I have been asking for for the last few months. I learned so much re: How to shift my feelings. I knew my feelings were telling me I was off the mark, & separate from Source. So How to get reconnected is very good news. The 6 steps put it in a concise, clear & doable format.' Rowe, MA Workshop, 4/08

"I've been on a journey to 'find myself' for a while now. That included attending Tony Robbins' Mastery University and having counseling. Something was missing though. I knew the answers were inside me but hadn't found the tools yet to access them. Margaret gave me the tools and it was light a light bulb! This makes so much sense to pay attention to myself, ask myself - honor myself.. She was excellent - compelling, passionate, loving - one of the best [leaders] I've had."
"I feel exhilarated by the openings I've experienced for my process. Especially a balance of positive empowering tools for my wounded self while I'm giving my inner child more loving attention. i.e. 'new job'; embracing, learning & dialog to core self, enhancing how to grow with loving adult guidance enhanced action."Kripalu Workshop, Lenox, MA, 10/09
"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
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
