'This has felt life changing for me. I met my Inner Child for the first time. Really heard her. I now realize that a lifetime of abandoning myself has caused a lot of pain. I am grateful for the concrete tools to begin to develop a Loving Adult that can listen to and pay attention to a long neglected core self. Thank you!' Southern California Weekend Workshop, 4.13
I feel that this workshop was life-changing. Finally, after years of therapy and reading every book I could get my hands on, I have a tool that I can use on a daily basis that will help me grow to become the person I want to be. The process and theory behind Inner Bonding just makes complete sense to me. I feel that I can finally, FINALLY make some progress on the road to being loving and accepting of myself and creating boundaries that are loving to me while not being controlling to others. Thank You!! Can't wait to read your books and take a class.
'Margaret is an amazing facilitator. She is so intuitive and real. I did not know what to expect and was very edgy about the weekend, but found the experience very safe and truthful. While I know I have a long way to go before I grasp the process, it is good to have made a start, and I look forward to continuing the journey.' Inner Bonding Weekend Workshop, Rowe, MA, 4/10
Inner Bonding is already a powwerful took for health and growth in my life! And its only been 2 days! Can't wait to continue this work. Dr. Margaret is wonderful - all that I've heard is true! My friend called her "a force of nature"! So true!
"Having completed an Inner Bonding workshop it was very rewarding and made me feel like a different person. Because of Inner Bonding I have a better understanding of my inner child, my loving adult and intent to open to love. I will continue Inner Bonding to go deeper into my Guidance for directions." Kripalu Workshop, Lenox, MA, 2009
