Daily InspirationWhat journey are you on - earthly or spiritual? Is your journey motivated by love, starting with yourself, or is your journey motivated by getting love and avoiding pain? Are you doing to define your being, or are you doing to express your being? Do you give to others but not to yourself - giving to get? Do you expect others or work or food or TV or alcohol or drugs to fill your emptiness instead of opening to Spirit to fill you with love and peace? Today, notice, without judgment, the journey you are on, moment by moment. By Dr. Margaret Paul
'Very helpful in getting, (beginning), to get in touch with myself. Seeing how I'm sabotaging my relationships. Regular therapy hasn't gotten to the core of my problems/issues. This has. I'm hopeful things will change for me now.' Kripalu Workshop, 9.10
"The Inner Bonding Workshop has helped me to see myself more clearly. I've made a commitment to take care of my little girl and I'm looking forward to attending a 5-Day Intensive as soon as possible. I would recommend this to anyone who wants to connect with themselves and others."
"This Workshop (lecture & role-play) was very enlightening. I'm inspired to continue connecting with myself through internal process of Inner Bonding - daily and throughout the day." LA Workshop, 7/05
