Daily InspirationIt is easy for most of us to judge ourselves, and challenging to be in compassion for ourselves. Yet it is compassion that motivates and heals. Today, focus on having compassion for the wounded judgmental part of you, and for all of your feelings. We learn and grow with compassion, and we shut down and get stuck with judgment. By Dr. Margaret Paul

"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
"Very positive. My first workshop of any kind; really, the first time I've truly looked into myself. I've suffered from depression and addictions since I was in my early teens, reaching a crescendo of late. Lest I lose my family, I need to do this. So far, so good. I really enjoyed it, even though painful." Rowe Weekend Workshop, 5/06
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
