Daily Inspiration

If you go deep inside, you will discover that the hope of all addictive, controlling behavior is to protect you from feeling the loneliness of not being connected with another, and from feeling helpless over others and outcomes, and from the heartache and heartbreak of others' unloving behavior, and from feeling the grief of loss. When you learn to accept and manage these very painful feelings with kindness and compassion toward yourself and through your connection with Spirit, you will heal and find your joy, wholeness and freedom.

By Dr. Margaret Paul

'I was very fearful of doing this workshop because of some spiritual abuse from my past and being very, very stuck from that.  Margaret was very insightful, very helpful and the support of the group helped me feel safe enough to let go and let healing begin.  I have been learning tools about how to take care of myself in the future and to heal the past wounds and to be present with my feelings.' Jan.'09 Santa Barbara Intensive
Katherine McGregor

"After having read two of Margaret's books and worked half way through her "Healing your Aloneness Workbook", I got stuck. I was so desperate that I eventually decided to travel half way around the world out of Germany to attend a 5 days Intensive. But then I experienced the very best of all the previous 44 years of my life. I found the key to healing which I had been searching for such a long time! I would like to encourage all persons in Germany who have considered attending an Intensive to do so, though I consider English knowledge at conversational level necessary." L.A. Intensive, 2/05

"What a gift I received. Margaret's wisdom and compassion offered each of us a safe haven to explore our inner depths, to embrace the feelings which had held us hostage for so long, and to open to a new path of light - to reconnect with our own TRUE essence. What a journey I had, what wonderful tools I left with, what wonderful people I've connected to. Attending and participating in this intensive for me was like taking an express train from: fear to strength; ignorance to wisdom; lethargy to action; darkness to light; passenger to engineer." L.A. Intensive, 2/05

"I have welcomed the knowledge and the tools to enable me to begin my journey into becoming a more loving adult not only to myself but to others as well. I am seeing things in a different light! This morning I prayed for thy will to be my will and for guidance to actually be thy will. This is the first time I have prayed in years." Lucerne Valley, CA
Becky Felder

"I learned a great deal at the Intensive, both personally and professionally. Personally, through my personal work and the work of others, I have learned about the dysfunctional patterns in my life and how I can change them. Professionally, I learned how to be a better therapist by watching the amazing gifts of Margaret. Her loving attention to each person has been an inspiration to me, and the growth we all achieved is extraordinary." Santa Barbara Intensive, 2/06
Jean Schumaker, Ph.D, S.E.P.

"I had a wonderful time at the Inner Bonding Intensive. This work is deeper than anything else I've done and during the Intensive you really get tools that you can use at home to maintain the connection that you've created." L.A. Intensive, 2/05

5-Day Intensive

Dr. Margaret Paul and other Inner Bonding Facilitators offer five-day intensive workshops for both individuals and couples.

In an environment of safety and compassion, discover and heal the cycle of shame and self-abandonment that is the root cause of your anxiety, depression, addictions and relationship struggles. Dr. Margaret Paul and other facilitators quickly see exactly how you are treating yourself that is causing your suffering and gently guide you in learning to love yourself and others rather than continue to abandon yourself. 

  • Heal the fears and false beliefs that limit you, moving into the ability to manifest your dreams.
  • Heal the abandonment, shame and self-abandonment issues that lie at the center of anxiety, depression, addictions and relationship problems.
  • Heal taking/caretaking control issues, resolving anger, withdrawal, compliance and resistance.
  • Heal fears of rejection, engulfment, aloneness, and failure.
  • Heal addictions to drugs, food, nicotine, alcohol, relationships, work, sex, and other addictions.

The workshop maximum of 12 people (occasionally 13) provides a safe, intimate, caring environment for individuals and couples to work in exploring deeper issues. Through Inner Bonding, you learn to develop a loving adult who connects deeply with your core Self, your wounded self, and your Higher Guidance. We work with Inner Bonding eight to nine hours daily, giving participants plenty of time for healing work.

In the Inner Bonding work, the woundedness that started in your family of origin is addressed and you are helped to understand and heal your fears and beliefs that create anxiety and depression, and stand in the way of loving yourself and others. You learn how to create a safe space within which to resolve conflicts, as well as the necessary tools to resolve conflict in ways that lead to increased closeness in all your relationships. 

"The Intensive exceeded my expectations. The atmosphere, safe environment, fun and gentle support provided the most amazing place in which to heal, learn and grow.  Sunrise was the perfect place to do the workshop - a loving, peaceful retreat.  I am definitely going back." ~ Irena Grgona, MSc Psychology Student & Executive Assistant, London, UK, 10.14

"The Inner Bonding Intensive is the most profound healing experience I have ever had.  It helped me to embody my Loving Adult and I gained enormous clarity about the false beliefs of my Wounded Self.  I have been propelled further along the path of having a very strong connection with my Guidance.  I am immensely grateful to Dr. Margaret Paul for making her work available in this format." A.M.,  2.14
