Daily InspirationDo you feel unseen by others? Then you may not be seeing yourself. Do you feel unheard by others? Perhaps you are not hearing yourself. Do you feel discounted by others? Then you are likely discounting yourself. Do you feel unappreciated by others? Do you appreciate yourself? Today, focus on seeing, listening to, attending to and appreciating yourself. By Dr. Margaret Paul
'A wise and warm introduction to profoundly effective work. Brilliantly designed and warmly presented. As a professional I've seen a lot of approaches to personal growth & liberation and this is by far the best I've encountered. The intention of Dr. Paul makes all the difference; she is a gift to this culture.' Inner Bonding Weekend Workshop, Rowe, MA, 4/10

'Even if you have been a member on the Website, this Workshop will deepen your practice and take you to the next level. I was scared of opening up to strangers, but you created a safe environment for us. Thank you!'
I have met with Nancy Swisher and find Inner Bonding a very moving and spiritual event that every one should be part of. My inner child keeps getting stronger every day.
Keep on doing what you are doing and enjoy what Inner Bonding can bring to you.
"As someone who went to a 5-Day Intensive I knew the process very well already, however, there was still plenty of learning and growth that I experienced over the weekend. Different details of the process always come up, and it is always a joy to watch people heal." Kripalu Workshop, Lenox, MA, 2009
'I wanted to attend this workshop, no obstacle would have prevented me from attending. At the workshop I was able to immerse myself in the process, previously, I only read the instructions on your website. I specifically liked learning about all of the ways that we deny ownership & responsibility for our Inner Child, and all of the ways we can integrate this Inner Child into our lives. I did benefit in understanding dynamics of relationships much better, and in understanding false belief systems and how they sabotage our happiness. I would recommend the Workshop because it is excellent for achieving awareness of how to evolve into a better person. I am grateful for this experience. It has opened up my understanding of my life.' Los Angeles Weekend Workshop, 3.11
"I tell everyone about Inner Bonding. It sort of flips some of the ways of being in the world on it's head. I've been into spirituality and personal growth since reading Gary Zukav's Seat of the Soul at 14. I'm a certified somatic therapist, and have done numerous workshops, types of therapy, and retreats. Inner Bonding was truly the missing piece for me. Even though I had done psycoscophy and worked with subpersonalities and inner child work, nothing simplifies it or is as empowering as Inner Bonding…. I really, really would like to see the word get out about Inner Bonding and it be taught in AA, NA, Unity Church, and any and everywhere that people are ready and open to healing… I have woken up in the middle of the night and been unable to go back to sleep chronically off-and-on for 12 years. Inner Bonding is totally healing me!! I've been sleeping all though the night."
What is Inner Bonding?
INNER BONDING is an easy-to-learn system, a Six Step roadmap that, when practiced, brings rapid healing of the fears and false beliefs that control our lives. Practicing INNER BONDING offers a clear direction toward becoming loving to ourselves and others. Healing deep issues through INNER BONDING results in the peace, joy, fulfillment, empowerment, and emotional freedom that we all seek but find so illusive.
INNER BONDING is a process that leads to loving yourself through teaching you how to take 100% responsibility for your own feelings and needs. Self-abandonment is the core issue behind anxiety, depression, anger, addictions, relationship problems, and parenting problems. Self-abandonment leads to feeling like a victim, while Inner Bonding leads to emotional freedom and personal empowerment.
INNER BONDING is an easy-to-learn system, a roadmap presenting clear steps that, when practiced, brings rapid results in understanding our feelings and behavior, resolving our fears and false beliefs that control our lives, and gives us clear direction toward becoming loving to ourselves and others. Healing our deeper issues through INNER BONDING results in the peace, joy, fulfillment and empowerment that we all seek but find so elusive.
INNER BONDING is a powerful six-step mind/body/spirit healing process that will transform your life by teaching you to:
- Recognize your true worth
- Discover your passion and purpose in life
- Take loving care of your heart, mind, body, and spirit
- Take responsibility for your own feelings of pain and joy, safety and worth
- Create deeply satisfying and enduring love relationships
INNER BONDING is not just another technique to solve problems - it is a deep healing process that leads to connection with self, others, and Divine Love. INNER BONDING works, regardless of one's spiritual or religious background or how severely one was abused, neglected, or indulged as a child.
There is a paradox that has kept many people from complete healing: We cannot experience deep spiritual connection until we love ourselves, but we cannot love ourselves until we experience the love that comes from a deep spiritual connection. In other words, love of self -- which is what Divine love teaches us -- is a prerequisite to self-growth.
INNER BONDING goes to the heart of this paradox. It is a simple yet sophisticated system that:
- Teaches you how to establish a deep daily personal connection and dialogue with a loving source of spiritual guidance.
- Frees your essence -- your core Self, the light within -- and fills your heart with love.
- Heals the false beliefs of your wounded self - your wounded inner child -- beliefs that are the source of the fear, pain, and relationship problems in your life.
- Develops a powerful adult self who can take loving action for yourself and with others.
Traditional psychology has centered on becoming aware of and healing our difficult and painful feelings and behavior. Spirituality has stressed connection with God. Neither has helped individuals to develop a personally-responsible loving Adult capable of healing the pain of the past, bringing joy in the present, and connecting with our spiritual Guidance. This is the major component missing from most other self-help processes. Individuals find that, while many processes bring short-term relief, they may not change the quality of life. INNER BONDING does.
Our society is evolving toward a more spiritual solution to our problems, a solution that has not been offered by either psychology or religion. People are recognizing that life is empty without the spiritual dimension, but religion has not always provided that. INNER BONDING differentiates between the earthly and the spiritual, between love intended to get and love intended to give, between power over others and power within self. It provides a much-needed process for moving out of fear and into love, out of the need to control and into trust so you can weather the storms of everyday life and embrace the sacred privilege of life on this planet.
INNER BONDING is built upon the concept of intent. Our intent is our deepest desire, our primary motivation. There are only two possible intents we can have in any given moment: the intent to protect ourselves from pain or the intent to learn about loving. Our culture operates on the earthly premise that joy is found in avoiding pain and seeking pleasure. When we shift to the spiritual perspective, we operate from the premise that true peace and joy come from an intent to be a loving human being.
