Daily InspirationDo not be dismayed when you find yourself facing the same issues over and over. We all experience this - it is just different levels of the same soul's lessons. Each time, embrace the issues with compassion. By Dr. Margaret Paul
'Having previously read 'Inner Bonding' I had the essential parts of this process already. What I did get was more insight into accessing the higher source and how important that is to the whole process. Not being a particularly metaphysical person this was a real accomplishment. I also got an improved vision of what the wounded self is and why it is important not to confuse it too much with the classic definition of ego.' LA Workshop, 3.7.10
"My experience here was excellent. I received so much more information than I would have expected in 2 days. I now feel that I have the basic tools to know how to take care of myself. All I need to do now is practice the principles in my daily life. I look forward to attending a 5-Day Intensive!" L.A. Weekend Workshop, 11/04
"I have done much work before but this goes right to the essence of what it means to (be)come human."
Van Houte Johannes
"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
'Being here has been very Self-affirming. I feel as though I have taken action on what it means to love myself by being here. I am saying to my Inner Child - you matter, you're important, I love you and I am committed to taking care of you. I feel more responsible for myself and my feelings. I feel more capable of standing up for myself, and I feel empowered to let go of my addiction to approval from others.' Los Angeles Workshop, 1/09
"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, 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
