Daily InspirationToday, really notice your thoughts. Notice which thoughts create fear, anxiety, anger or depression. Notice which thoughts create peace, joy, lightness of being. Notice how these feelings result directly from your thoughts. Thoughts that create pain are not in your highest good. Thoughts that create peace are thoughts that are in harmony with your being. With practice, you can learn to be more in charge of your thoughts. By Dr. Margaret Paul
'Your calming, learned persona is very lovely to be around, and I feel hopeful and non-anxious about proceeding with this work.' Kripalu Workshop - Lenox, MA, 9.13
'I really appreciate learning how to love myself from someone who has walked the hard journey of learning to love & take responsibility for herself by opening to God's love & guidance. It is clear from observing her that true love for others flows from allowing God's love into yourself to become your love of yourself. Love it!' Weekend Workshop - Anaheim Hills, CA 3.14
"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
'I have been in therapy for 10 years and this weekend at Kripalu, changed my life forever.' Kripalu Workshop, 9.12
"Very informative, a bit daunting in terms of how much work there is to do. Margaret was very personal, accessible, very willing to answer questions & explain in detail. I think I'll be attending an Intensive at some point next year, and I'm hoping my husband will agree to attend with me." Kripalu Workshop, Lenox, MA, 10/09
'A wise and warm introduction to profoundly effective work. Brilliantly designed and warmly presented. As a professional I've seen a lot of approaches to personal growth & liberation and this is by far the best I've encountered. The intention of Dr. Paul makes all the difference; she is a gift to this culture.' Inner Bonding Weekend Workshop, Rowe, MA, 4/10
