Daily InspirationWe all wish we could control the outcome of things, and we spend much energy trying to do so. Today, be present in the moment, let go of the future and the illusion of control. Accept that Spirit is in charge of outcomes - and that Spirit always supports your highest good! By Dr. Margaret Paul
"It's great to have a method to work through issues. It's great to know that I can hold myself responsible instead of others because I can change me but not anyone else. My most precious memory is seeing through visualization my inner child happy & laughing & joyous & filled with life playing naked in the pine tree grove and knowing that she doesn't need anyone else to make her feel so happy & alive!" Kripalu Workshop, 9/08
'This is my second workshop for Inner Bonding and I got so much more out of it this time. I would definitely return again and again.' Kripalu Workshop, 9.12
'Dr. Paul created a safe & nurturing environment while offering wonderful tools about Inner Bonding & explaining in detail with clear examples of how we can lovingly take care of ourselves on every level - emotionally, physically & spiritually in order to live in peace & joy.' Kripalu Workshop, 9.15 - Lenox, MA
"Although I have been doing Inner Bonding for almost 2 years through the books, I was still amazed at how I was able to gain some important insights into a problem I have been struggling with for about 1 year. So being able to do it with Margaret's guidance was wonderful. Not only that but, there was such a 'holistically healing' experience of being able to get away, eat organic healthy food, do yoga & meditation, that brought the point of doing Inner Bonding 'home'." Kripalu Workshop, 9/08
'I was very pleased at the diversity of the participants, (age & sex), as this added to the experience when they shared. This process, Inner Bonding, is a wonderful learning experience and really works. I specifically liked when Dr. Margaret worked with individuals, as it really helped me understand how the Inner Bonding process works. Three ways I've benefited from this Workshop are: 1. It raised my self-esteem 2. Learned that I have, we all have Guidance and how to connect to it. 3. Improved my relationship with myself. I would recommend this Workshop - everyone needs this opportunity and understanding. It could ultimately heal families and our sick society.' Los Angeles Weekend Workshop, 3.11
"Being taken through the steps in this format was extremely helpful and
beneficial. The most benefit for me was watching and experiencing the work you did
with others individually. It took the workshop to a whole other level. I am so
blessed by your presence in my life and that you are truly the gifted healer
that you are. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!" Rowe, MA, 4/04
