Daily InspirationWhen someone has hurt you deeply and you just want to get back at him or her, ask yourself: What is the high road? What is truly loving to myself? Will hurting another heal me? By Dr. Margaret Paul
"I like the sense of community that develops with the group over the course of the intensive. Lacking this in my everyday life, it is incredible to experience what a loving, open, sharing community could/can be like."
The environment was beautiful in its setting and a safe place to do this work. Margie created the safety. The great value is in the recognition of intention to act in a loving and compassionate manner toward myself.
'Inner Bonding Intensives are always a gift to myself. I always come away with greater insight; useful information that allows me to be authentic and care lovingly for myself.'
'I had a real breakthrough in this Intensive. Although I had been to many others before, for the first time, I connected to all of my wounded issues and realized that I have abandoned myself my whole life. I learned for the first time how to let God/Grace come into my presence and fill me.' Long Island Advanced Intensive, 12.12
"Before I came to Kripalu to take the Inner Bonding Workshop I had a large feeling of Aloneness. The workshop has allowed me to understand my Self abandonment, and how to work on loving my own inner child. After one weekend of Inner Bonding I feel wonderful and the experience is unlike anything I have ever experienced." Kripalu Workshop, Lenox, MA, 10/09
"I have let go of significant self-limiting behaviors and false beliefs and moved more fully towards thoughts and actions that are truly loving to myself and others. With Margie's help, I have seen, felt and started to reclaim my spontaneous, creative essence. This process has helped me feel more deeply the reality that we are all God's children."
Even though I had just completed a two year Master's degree in Counseling Psychology, I learned so much more about loving myself during the intensive. The experience has substantially changed my life and I now have a very practical tool to use in transforming my fears and worries into compassion and love. I highly recommend the experience - my wife and I are incredibly grateful!
