Daily InspirationLove does not compromise itself. It stays firm even in the face of disapproval, rejection, loss, threats. Love does not fly away in the face of fear. There are no conditions under which love leaves. Notice today how you react in the face of fear. By Dr. Margaret Paul
"Incredible - insightful - as if I am taking the workshop for the very first time [this is her second time] - but as a 'different' me. I am grateful for my growth and yet still see how far I have to go. [Margie was] amazing. Open. Honest. Beautiful." Los Angeles, May 2000
'I was impressed with Margaret's innate ability to guide, invite and support the group's most entrenched challenges. She was a patient and clear facilitator with timed sessions and an openness to the many questions that manifested within us. Thank you. You are wonderful and giving.' Weekend Workshop - Kripalu - Lenox, MA 9.14
"The weekend is a powerful illumination of the 6 steps of Inner Bonding. Because Inner Bonding is a practice one commits to (or not), the weekend is very valuable even if you already have been doing the Inner Bonding process."
"I entered in a lot of inner pain, and today I feel very strong & positive towards personal self-care, growth & becoming a self reliant, loving me." Kripalu Workshop, Lenox, MA, 10/09
'It felt like such a warm, welcoming and nonjudgmental environment to go through the 6 Step process. Margaret was so authentic, warm, real and gentle and created a safe space for me to process with my inner child and connect with my heart and God's presence again. Best place to be!' Weekend Workshop - Anaheim Hills, CA 3.14
"A cynic - what is this? Another workshop? The Inner Child - can't be.. and then it was, all my pent up feelings, anger, hostility jumping out at me. And what I learned over two days was to start to listen to my 'gut' feelings. They were there to put me on track but I had discarded these feelings as being silly, not adult-like. What a revelation to me and the start of some work and growth to assimilate the loving Adult and Inner Child."
Toronto Workshop, April, 2000
