Daily InspirationWe don't surrender to Spirit because we have hope in having control - over people, outcomes, and our own feelings. Today, notice how often your thoughts turn to, "If I do this, then this will happen." "If I say this, then the other person will react in this way." Our hope of control is very deep, but it will never bring us true peace and safety. By Dr. Margaret Paul
'This workshop is both practical for learning how to enjoy life everyday as me, & for showing up filled with confidence & the ability to flow in what I do & who I'm interacting with. I can see & feel how applying Inner Bonding in my life will not only benefit me, but will have a positive loving impact on others.' Kripalu Workshop, 9.15 - Lenox, MA
"Absolutely wonderful experience! This has empowered me to be completely responsible for my own peace, happiness and joy. It is so freeing to know that it's okay to take care of myself w/out feeling selfish or unkind." LA Workshop, 7/05

"Wonderful! I learned so much intellectually, even though I've read 3 of the books! I learned so much experientially." Rowe Weekend Workshop, 5/06
"I wanted to let you know that after taking the 30 day ‘Attracting Your Beloved’ course I have met and begun a new relationship – the first one in 7 years at the age of 40!
"Although it is still very early days, I am astonished that I have met someone so kind, honest, open and relaxed. I have NEVER experienced such a sense of safety with a man and my inner child feels so comfortable with him. He really is a joy to be with.
"I am thrilled and yet calm - not experiencing any of the previous senses of panic or fear because I know, come what may, I will never lose me again.
"I’m in no doubt that this has happened due to the inner work I have undertaken since discovering Inner Bonding and I am so very grateful to you and to my higher guidance."
'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
'The knowledge and understanding that was shared was extremely valuable to me. You clarified so many things & reinforced things I knew deep down but hadn't completely accepted as my truth. I feel that I now have a practice that I can begin to guide me to a happier & more fulfilling life.' Inner Bonding Weekend Workshop, Rowe, MA, 4/10
