Daily InspirationDo you try to create safety with control or with love, with your wounded self or with your loving Adult? Notice that trying to create safety with your wounded self will always make you feel unsafe. By Dr. Margaret Paul
'I came to this weekend not knowing anything about Inner Bonding, but came with some wounded self issues that were fresh and intense. I found the workshop overwhelming at first, and by the end, I now have a sense of who I am and can be as a loving adult. I'm looking forward to joy and creativity!' Rowe, MA Workshop, 4/08
'Thank you so much for this peaceful, gentle, life-changing process of Inner Bonding. I feel very lucky to have attended this 2 day workshop, and I'm empowered to use the Inner Bonding process now on a daily basis. It's so complete and so healing. Thank you!' Weekend Workshop - Anaheim Hills, CA 3.14
"The ideas expressed resonate with me. I've had glimpses into this for years. It's wonderful that people believed there must be a truth out there and pursued it. I'm responsible for making this new approach work in my life." Los Angeles, CA - September 2001
"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
"[Of most value was] The combination of conceptual understanding and practice, all in bite-size learning chunks. Inner Bonding is a psycho-spiritual technology that should be in every therapist's toolbox, and deserves a special place in the lives of all pursuing self-development!"
Los Angeles Workshop, Feb. 2000

'Very, very enlightening! I was able to have insights about myself and my childhood that I have not had in 10 years of self-study. What a brilliant, beautiful process. I look forward to seeing the amazing, positive changes that will happen in my life as I continue to practice Inner Bonding and nurturing my Inner Child. Thank you!' Kripalu Workshop, 9.10
