Daily InspirationHow much time do you spend in your ego wounded self and how much in your loving Adult? This week, choose to be conscious of which state you are in. If you feel hurt, angry, anxious or depressed, you are in your wounded self, and if you feel open and peaceful inside, you are in your loving Adult. By Dr. Margaret Paul
"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
"It was a very positive experience. Margie has such a wealth of knowledge and most importantly, experience, that is quite evident." Toronto Workshop - Toronto, Canada - 4/2001
"Inestimable value. It provides the truth; the truth necessary for any healing work to be effective; the framework to ensure that whatever tools you work are applied with the right intent. Thank you for helping to birth this work and for continuing to offer your gift to others. Very nice work you're doing!"
I found some very useful concepts which are kind of new to me, with an understanding of this relationship between inner child, loving adult and wounded self. It shed a lot of light on my relationship with my adult daughter and I am looking forward to beginning to apply them.
"This week-end has enlightened my soul. Inner Bonding is life changing. Margaret is amazing - she is the look of Freedom." L.A. Workshop, 12/06
"Very informative, a bit daunting in terms of how much work there is to do. Margaret was very personal, accessible, very willing to answer questions & explain in detail. I think I'll be attending an Intensive at some point next year, and I'm hoping my husband will agree to attend with me." Kripalu Workshop, Lenox, MA, 10/09
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, resulting in relationship problems.
- Fears of: rejection, abandonment, aloneness, engulfment or failure.
The Inner Bonding process provides a powerful roadmap for healing these issues.
"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
