Daily InspirationContentment is understanding with wings, and it can only be captured in the moment. By Dr. Erika Chopich
'This was the greatest thing I ever did for myself. Taking this step forward knowing that I have a tool box with all the tools I need to start my Journey. I would recommend this to anyone that wants to start loving themselves.' Weekend Workshop - Kripalu - Lenox, MA 9.14
"This workshop was profoundly enlightening, beyond merely understanding myself, into direct contact and experience of Self and Spirit. I had been out of touch for so long - my [inner] child feels so desperate to love and be loved - this workshop brought me deeper into the truth. [Margaret was] A-one, tops, the best! Totally present, open, giving, loving. Thank you." Rowe, MA Workshop, April, 2000
'I read the Inner Bonding steps before I came, but now I understand them much better. I can identify my wounded self now and I understand what my core feelings are. I was feeling very lonely and my wounded self was telling me I was unloveable and I would be alone forever. I am learning that I am loveable and I have the ability to make myself happy. I don't need others to bring happiness to me.' Weekend Workshop - Anaheim Hills, CA 3.14
'I came here with a very small understanding of Inner Bonding and had read a few articles on yours and Sheryl Paul's website. My love and relationship has been struggling for a year now and I was at my breaking point. It was so enlightening to learn Inner Bonding and understand that my wounded self was doing all the talking and treating my partner badly. All the time before it felt as if I was 'right' and it took this session for me to realize that I can only be right for me. I look forward to exploring Inner Bonding and loving myself and my partner the way we both deserve. This course has been excellent.' Weekend Workshop - Kripalu, Lenox, MA 9.14
"I have a sense of direction now about healing myself that I never had before. Margaret was fantastic."
"Thank you! A wonderful taste of reconnecting with myself - a loving, gentle
weekend with some real tools to bring home." Rowe, MA, 4/04
