Daily InspirationRemember why you are here in this body, on this planet. You are here to evolve your soul in love - for yourself and others. You are here on a spiritual journey of your soul. Remember this when there are challenges, when there is adversity. The adversity is your challenge to evolve your soul in love. Welcome it, and choose love. By Dr. Margaret Paul
"Experiencing the whole process was so helpful. It filled in so many gaps in my growth experience. I've made a commitment to work on my process and practice the steps daily." Los Angeles, May 2000
"I feel a wonderful sense of being taken care of, of being loved and full of joy and it came from within me. Getting in touch with my personal power is awesome."
"During the workshop, I was able to recognize that my relationship with myself, i.e. the ways I take care of myself, were patterned after the way my father took care of himself and interacted with me. I'm now able to make a different choice to honor and care for and cherish the relationship with my self as primary."

"The workshop brought together many concepts I had been exploring. It increased my understanding of the connections. It has helped me come to terms with the concept of powerlessness & lack of control. It has helped me to identify why it is so important to love & care for yourself and has given me the tools to learn how to love & care for myself." L.A. Workshop, 1/08
"Very informative, a bit daunting in terms of how much work there is to do. Margaret was very personal, accessible, very willing to answer questions & explain in detail. I think I'll be attending an Intensive at some point next year, and I'm hoping my husband will agree to attend with me." Kripalu Workshop, Lenox, MA, 10/09
"This workshop came as the right thing at the right time. I was coming to this in my dreams and through my intuition, but actually coming to the workshop brought me to concrete steps that I can take to heal my wounded self and actually move on through behavior that no longer serves. I feel empowered." Rowe Weekend Workshop, 5/06
