Daily InspirationWhen you tune inside, do you feel empty or full? Emptiness is letting you know that your wounded self is in charge and you are disconnected from the love that is Spirit. When you open to learning about loving yourself - loving the beautiful essence that is the spark of God within - your heart opens to Guidance and Love fills your being. Today, stay tuned in to whether you feel empty or full inside. By Dr. Margaret Paul
"Twenty years of marriage, I never understood why my wife called me 'controlling'. I got it! The things I learned about my anger and how to own it, and lovingly learn from it are terrific." Rowe, MA Workshop, 4/08
'I wasn't sure what to expect upon entering the workshop - my eyes were definitely opened to how I have developed a pattern of ignoring my inner self and looking to others to fulfill my needs. I have come away with a sense of empowerment and hope that I haven't ever felt before. Thank you!' Kripalu Workshop-Lenox, MA, 9.13
"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
"The workshop was an excellent introduction to this new world of spiritual connection. In just one weekend I feel that I was given the primary tools to refocus my energies and reconnect with my essence and spirit."
'Margaret's teaching of how to connect with all my key parts has been wonderful. I finish this weekend with a true intention to learn more about myself in an active way and to connect to my Child and Guidance.' Weekend Workshop - Kripalu - Lenox, MA 9.14
"Although I have been doing Inner Bonding for almost 2 years through the books, I was still amazed at how I was able to gain some important insights into a problem I have been struggling with for about 1 year. So being able to do it with Margaret's guidance was wonderful. Not only that but, there was such a 'holistically healing' experience of being able to get away, eat organic healthy food, do yoga & meditation, that brought the point of doing Inner Bonding 'home'." Kripalu Workshop, 9/08
