Daily InspirationNotice your judgments towards others. Each time you notice one, notice how it makes you feel when you judge. Are you judging yourself in a similar way? Notice how that makes you feel. Ask your Guidance if any of your judgments are truth or lies. What is the truth? By Dr. Margaret Paul
'At the Workshop I reconnected to my higher self, and experienced confidence building to do the right thing. It gave me hope that my partner and I can learn the tools we need to have a healthy relationship, first with ourselves and then with each other. I really liked the Visualizations led by Margaret. I would recommend the Workshop because it is very reflective and so empowering to be given permission to take care of yourself.' Los Angeles Weekend Workshop, 3.11
"I have done much work before but this goes right to the essence of what it means to (be)come human."
Van Houte Johannes
"It was a wonderful healing process for me. I came with the intention to learn and heal and as a result - I got what I came for."
'Being here has been very Self-affirming. I feel as though I have taken action on what it means to love myself by being here. I am saying to my Inner Child - you matter, you're important, I love you and I am committed to taking care of you. I feel more responsible for myself and my feelings. I feel more capable of standing up for myself, and I feel empowered to let go of my addiction to approval from others.' Los Angeles Workshop, 1/09
"It was insightful and sooo helpful. God/Guidance led me here to deal w/ anger which I did in chair work for the first time in my life. I was able to express, (in a good, safe way), anger at the past abuses and deaths of loved ones, the present, and allow myself to feel anger in the NOW. Thank you. Thank you sooo much!" LA Workshop, 7/05
"Amazing! I really feel it combines cognitive behavioral therapy with spirituality in such a way that is more healing and meaningful than just changing one's thoughts. What brought it home to me is really visualizing my wounded child as an actual child and asking myself, 'Would I really speak to a child that way?'" L.A. Workshop, 1/08
