Daily InspirationIt is not always what we say or do in a moment that defines us in that moment, but rather the energy with which we speak and act. Our energy in any given moment is open or closed, loving or unloving, accepting or judgmental, kind or unkind, soft or hard, flexible or unyielding, controlling or learning. Regardless of the words, the energy always betrays our intent. By Dr. Margaret Paul
"The February 2003 Workshop in LA was an awesome experience; very enlightening and instructional on how to become a loving adult to yourself first, then all others in your life. Thank you."
"The ideas expressed resonate with me. I've had glimpses into this for years. It's wonderful that people believed there must be a truth out there and pursued it. I'm responsible for making this new approach work in my life." Los Angeles, CA - September 2001
"It was a joy and a gift to be present as an assistant and to support Margie in bringing this work to Toronto. Thank you." Toronto Workshop, April, 2000
I so much appreciated this experience. It became so clear to me that I have been looking externally for love and approval rather than internally. I look forward to not only meeting my [inner] child on a daily basis, but my spiritual guidance as well.
"This workshop came as the right thing at the right time. I was coming to this in my dreams and through my intuition, but actually coming to the workshop brought me to concrete steps that I can take to heal my wounded self and actually move on through behavior that no longer serves. I feel empowered." Rowe Weekend Workshop, 5/06
'So helpful. I've been out of touch with my feelings all my life. I don't even know what boundaries are. This seems as if it were created just for me. The integration of spirit with deep psychological work is the missing piece in all the other therapies & meditation practices I've done.' Inner Bonding Weekend Workshop, Rowe, MA, 4/10
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
