Daily InspirationCompassionately embrace each painful emotion as you are aware of it. Let it teach you what it is here to teach you, then release it to Spirit, and ask for it to be replaced with peace. All of our painful feelings are here to teach us. Once we receive the message, then we need to release the energy of the emotion. Trapped emotional energy creates disease. Compassionately embrace, learn, and release to Spirit. By Dr. Margaret Paul

"Before I came to Kripalu to take the Inner Bonding Workshop I had a large feeling of Aloneness. The workshop has allowed me to understand my Self abandonment, and how to work on loving my own inner child. After one weekend of Inner Bonding I feel wonderful and the experience is unlike anything I have ever experienced." Kripalu Workshop, Lenox, MA, 10/09
"The experience is one of the most profound I have ever experienced. As the program developed it became more and more clear that not only
did this make sense, but that it is the way to become a fully 'functioning' loving Adult." Rowe, MA, 4/04
'This was the second time here. We came last year. This has been very reinforcing for my Inner Bonding process. The weekend went too quick.' Kripalu Workshop, 9.12
"It was truly transformative and enlightening. Generous, well-done in terms of not being heavy-handed. The one-on-ones with Margaret & participants was the most powerful and helpful. I've never been a 'group' person but learned so much from others." Kripalu Workshop, Lenox, MA, 10/09

"This has been a very healing day for me and the process has shown me my true potential. I realize that the only real choice is to move into Spirit because without it means working very hard at a solo effort." Los Angeles, May 2000
