Daily InspirationYou cannot control another's caring about you. In any given moment, others are either caring or they are not, and it has nothing to do with you. Being caring is a soul quality of a person - who they essentially are, but many people are numb to their essential self. When we are connected with our true, essential soul-self, caring is our way of being in the world. By Dr. Margaret Paul
'At the Workshop I reconnected to my higher self, and experienced confidence building to do the right thing. It gave me hope that my partner and I can learn the tools we need to have a healthy relationship, first with ourselves and then with each other. I really liked the Visualizations led by Margaret. I would recommend the Workshop because it is very reflective and so empowering to be given permission to take care of yourself.' Los Angeles Weekend Workshop, 3.11
"I arrived, terrified at the prospect of revealing myself in the work process. As the walls came tumbling down with the tears, I was finally able to open to myself and my group. It was such a tremendous release and relief to know that my primary focus is to become a loving person, and to do that I need to (get to) take care of myself. Margaret creates a wonderfully loving safe environment for beautiful healing things to happen." Rowe, MA Workshop, April, 2000
"It was truly transformative and enlightening. Generous, well-done in terms of not being heavy-handed. The one-on-ones with Margaret & participants was the most powerful and helpful. I've never been a 'group' person but learned so much from others." Kripalu Workshop, Lenox, MA, 10/09

"I found this workshop to be very informative, supportive, and just what I needed at this time in my life! All the information given and shared was extremely helpful in learning the Inner Bonding experience more fully. I definitely recommend this workshop!" L.A. Weekend Workshop, 11/04
'It has been helpful to see the process worked in front of a group, to see others experiences, as well as working in small groups. Sharing each others experiences, strength & hope. Margaret defined over & over the differences of the Loving Adult & the Wounded Child & that has been very helpful as I have struggled with this concept.' Kripalu Workshop, 9.12
"The Inner Bonding workshop saved my life. I was just diagnosed as being
bipolar and had been out of work on disability. I now feel I can take care of
myself, love myself and face any challenges I come across by utilizing the Inner
Bonding process." Omega Workshop, 5/04
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
