Daily InspirationWhat do you do in conflict? Do you learn or do you run? Do you use conflict as an opportunity to evolve your soul in love, or do you do all you can to avoid the conflict? We can learn much through adversity. People who have it easy are often not nearly as strong as people who have had to overcome adversity. Today, embrace conflict as a wonderful opportunity to learn. By Dr. Margaret Paul
'I was impressed with Margaret's innate ability to guide, invite and support the group's most entrenched challenges. She was a patient and clear facilitator with timed sessions and an openness to the many questions that manifested within us. Thank you. You are wonderful and giving.' Weekend Workshop - Kripalu - Lenox, MA 9.14
"I have never felt so energized by an experience. I feel the teacher arrived when me, the student, was ready. Margaret, you speak right to my Soul. Thank you for you." Toronto Workshop - Toronto, Canada - 4/2001
"I thought the course was very well designed and helpful. The online format (versus face-to-face) allows for deep reflection, the extended time (a full month vs. a one-week or three-day workshop) promotes development of new habits, and hearing others’ perspectives of course, makes for a very rich experience. Being able to ask you specific feedback and get answers immediately was fantastic. Thanks for all your help!" 9/13
'Excellent. Really brought shifts I experienced in the evenings after leaving the workshop. Helped clarify areas needing work.' Kripalu Workshop, 9.12
"The workshop was a wonderful description and reminder of a powerful and
effective healing process for our wounded selves. It's a complete process that
can be done by ourselves as a daily practice as well as being facilitated by
another person." Rowe, MA, 4/04
"I feel like a lot of questions have been answered and that I have a whole new toolbox to take into the world that will help me love myself and those around me.
It was an extremely useful training in accurate self-care - an area where I have been really stuck. A few very important reminders, a few pieces of 'diamond dust' - new revelations."
Rev. Alexia Salvatierra
