"I believe the experience of the Intensive was life altering. For the first time, after many years of searching through countless therapies, I have discovered the gift of giving up control. Through Inner Bonding I will focus on being a loving adult to my wounded inner child. I'll let my higher self guide me and I will not hand her to others to fill me." Santa Barbara Intensive, 11/04

"It was my third Intensive and a fabulous experience again. Each group is different & the energy of this group was great, Margaret told me that it was because I was at a very different place compared to my first intensive - And it feels great, happy & true. I will encourage everybody to come to the Intensive, I've met wonderful people who I hope I'll see again." Santa Barbara Intensive, 11/04

Monte D. Umphress,Letter Carrier
El Cajon,California

The Intensive showed me that the love I was longing to find was always abundantly available inside myself as soon as I opened to the Inner Bonding process. When I align my Inner Child with my Compassionate Adult and listen to my Spirit Guide then my mind becomes clear and my heart overflows with an abundance of loving Energy - Thanks, Margaret" Santa Barbara Intensive, 11/04

"I started very scared, very depressed, very skeptical and ended with answers I needed to heal myself from the misery I was going through. The words scared me (Spiritual, Guidance, among others) but after participating I got the tools I needed to begin in my healing."Santa Barbara Intensive, 11/04

Lalia Baisley,Jeweler

"Before Inner Bonding came into my life I was a loner and an atheist. Since it has, I'm still a loner. But now a happy loner because I experience the continuing joy of internal connection among spirit guidance, loving adult and inner child. The solidity and reliability of this most fruitful relationship depends, however, on meeting the challenge day by day, hour by hour, of making sure that the decision maker, the loving adult is indeed fully loving. Happily, this challenge becomes easier and easier to address as the days go by - Life in joy can become habitual." Santa Fe Intensive, 10/04

"In three days, I've identified deeper levels of ways I control and what I need to do to release my false beliefs to Spirit. From Day One, our group was a connected and supportive team. Everybody came open and wanting to learn how to be more loving, and left in a more compassionate place for themselves." Advanced Intensive, Amherst, MA, 10/04

"Both Judy and I rediscovered our abandoned Inner Children while we were participating at the Inner Bonding Intensive in Santa Fe. The added bonus was finding our power again. This has been an amazing process both individually and as a couple. Margaret Paul has been miraculous as the leader and co-founder of the Inner Bonding process. This process has allowed me to realize that I can be in a relationship without losing myself." Couples Intensive, Santa Fe, 8/04

Art Ross,Real Estate Broker/Shopping Center Developer
Westlake Village,California

"Finally, after years of having relationships end the same way with the same problem (intense fighting and thinking the other person is the problem) and ending up alone, I finally was able to see myself and how I was contributing to the problem or how my way or being was activating or contributing to the result of separation. I see that I was addicted to anger, and I was looking outside of myself to validate who I am. I know and will take the time to love and take care of myself, and that anger is my addiction and not the solution." Couples Intensive, Santa Fe, 8/04

Michelle Ota,Mortgage Broker
Del Air,California

"I have enjoyed attending Intensives in the past on my own - attending with my partner was an even more rewarding experience since I was able to observe our system and my role in it. As well, we now have a shared experience and vocabulary to work through our challenges together." Couples Intensive, Santa Fe, 8/04

Liz Radzick,Management Consultant

"[The Intensive] is a personal experience and group process where you can be in touch with yourself and others in a powerfully healing way. I loved every minute of it and can't wait to do it again! I learned so much from witnessing others, as well as doing my own work. It's a good way to access your feelings and the messages they are giving you, and find the support and guidance you need in the moment, at any moment." Santa Fe Intensive, 5/04.

Naomi Roen
So. Burlington,Vermont

"In a supportive and loving environment, I was able to explore my thoughts, behaviors and intentions when in relationship to myself and others. The Inner Bonding process offers a way to freedom, clarity and joy. If you are ready to take full responsibility for yourself, open to what is possible for you and experience an Intensive." Santa Fe Intensive, 5/04

"This intensive was a major gift and turning point in my life. Watching Margaret Paul was so confirming, affirming and such a tremendous role model for pure consistent, unconditional love without a shade of judgment." Santa Fe Intensive, 5/04

Patricia Bruno,Businesswoman

A transformational experience, beyond any previous therapy. Each intensive that I attend allows me to move closer to achieving my full potential. Inner Bonding is the key to successful relationship. I deeply appreciate the opportunity to participate in this safe, loving, learning experience. Margie is a dedicated teacher, with a wonderful gift to share. 2003

Enid Kessler,Interfaith Minister/Addiction Counselor
New York, NY, USA

Spending 5 days in this loving [intensive] environment is a freeing and joyful experience. It brings me such a sense of what life on the planet can be, and teaches me how to live my journey in a way that lets the light in - Inner Bonding is a process to practice with intention, and thereby I have found joy. 2003

Rick Fria,Construction Management
Snoqualmie, WA

This [intensive] was probably the safest I have felt since birth! Margaret Paul created a nurturing container of pure love and curiosity which allowed me to face and address an issue I have hidden from for 50+ years. I came hoping for a breakthrough experience and I found it.

Marti Neal,Therapist

I feel that Margie is an enlightened person. She has an intensity that stimulates all levels of communication within my being. I'm a better person for my work with Margie [at the intensive] and I look forward to continuing my growth.

Michael Narutowicz,Entrepreneur

Before the intensive I was feeling hopeless and cynical about trying one more thing. After the first day, this workshop had changed my life permanently. What I had thought was a lot of money to spend on a five-day intensive I now will pay willingly and gratefully again and again as I continue to bring Inner Bonding into my life.

Karen Kral,Graduate Student, Counseling
Santa Fe,New Mexico

After having completed my second Intensive, I am filled with inner peace and joy. This feeling comes from having found my spirit! With my spirit as my guide I am never alone. I am very excited about the work that I have done and look forward to integrating the Inner Bonding process into my life and work. Thank you Margie!

Joanne Blayman,Registered Nurse
Chapel Hill,North Carolina

My experience with Inner Bonding [the intensive] was that the six step process took me much deeper into my psyche than I expected or have experienced with other psychotherapist's methods. I recognized how deceptively controlling I am of myself and others to ensure my needs and responsibilities are handed over to my wife and others. I will now be learning to take responsibility for my needs and begin to give much needed love and attention to my inner child.

James Schmidt,Retired Aerospace Engineer
Albuquerque,New Mexico

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!

Mark Lersch,Intern - Counseling
Santa Fe,New Mexico

If you consider five days of your life, there is no better way to get to know yourself and walk away with a process for continued positive growth. I loved being here learning from Margie and all the participants. The bonding that occurred was both inner and with everyone with whom I shared this time.

Michael Solomon,Entrepreneurial Advisor

The Intensive provides a safe environment to create a healthy dialogue between your healthy adult and inner child. The workshop participants provide a wonderful mirror of our own issues and experiences. The Inner bonding process gives you an opportunity to tune into your spiritual connection and learn what is in your highest good.

Wayne Minor,Sales
Ft. Lauderdale,Florida

I came to this intensive program somewhat reluctantly as my wife wanted to attend. I leave, five days later, with an intense sense of gratitude that I attended and a feeling of being greatly privileged as I and others in the group spoke our truth and discussed our issues. The feeling of safety and encouragement and Margaret's insights made a great deal of progress possible. Many times I felt a chill as comments and suggestions made by Margaret hit home and were understood at the gut level by the participant. I would encourage all human beings who want to grow emotionally and spiritually to attend this program.

Shazad Carpenter,CPA and Therapist
San Jose,California

Intensive #2. Now I really 'get' how to use the 6 steps and know that by constantly and consistently practicing them that I will release the fear and anger that has been blocking me from the sunshine of spirit.

David Rhodes,Business Owner - Realtor - Psychologist
Chapel Hill,North Carolina

The [couples] workshop offered an excellent opportunity to learn by examples what it means to listen to your inner child, to open to spiritual guidance, and to practice the entire sequence of the Inner Bonding process. Observing (and sometimes participating) in other people's explorations offered both an opportunity to see the Inner Bonding process in action, but also an opportunity to see an issue one has being dealt with by another person who has the same issue. Doing one's work with Margie as a coach is very effective.

Dorothy McKinney,Engineer
San Jose,California

I came to the intensive with an overwhelming sadness and anger, but I did not know the cause, or essence of it. I trusted Margie and her assistants (Patti and Colin) to know how to unleash these feelings. By trusting, and having a willingness to learn about myself - I have broken down the walls that protected the pain I was holding onto. I no longer want to focus on these negatives, I want to use the knowledge for loving myself and others.

Laurie Dalton,Property Master/ TV and Film
Los Angeles,California

The Ossining Intensive was powerful and incredibly healing. Michael and Nancy made a truly safe - and sacred - place for us in this lovely old farmhouse. They helped us explore the defenses we had created against extremely painful memories, losses and fears from childhood, all with the intent to know and love ourselves more deeply. They are so grounded in this wonderful Innerbonding process -- and it works! Nancy brings her strength and Mother Earth presence and Michael his persistent, gentle spiritual connection: a dynamite combination! The meditations, dancing, hilarious story-making, inner child's play like blowing bubbles, and Notessence collages of our core selves all helped create community and gave us a way to integrate this profound experience. We were empowered and transformed. And we laughed as much as we cried. This was my third intensive and filled with gratitude for the way my life has changed over 15 months. Thank you Nancy and Michael for the gift of seeing ourselves through the eyes of grace. Thank you for the privilege of being with other beautiful souls and sharing a part of their journey. Namaste.
