The Inner Bonding Workshop
Heal the cycle of shame and self-abandonment that leads to anxiety, depression, addiction, aloneness and relationship failure. Discover how to love yourself rather than reject yourself, and learn to make your best decisions through consistent connection with your personal source of spiritual guidance.
The innovative Inner Bonding process shows you how to:
- Rapidly heal false beliefs about yourself, others and higher spiritual guidance
- Heal guilt, shame, emptiness and aloneness
- Move beyond self-judgment into self-compassion
- Address the resistance that may be keeping you stuck
- Learn how to heal relationship conflicts and attain the intimacy you've always wanted
This powerful and life-changing process is the result of Dr. Margaret's over 50 years of personal inner work and work with her clients.
Unless you were raised by parents or caregivers who were loving to themselves, each other and to you, you may not have learned how to lovingly manage your painful feelings. As a result, you may be operating from your ego wounded self, controlled by your fears and false beliefs.
Your wounded self may often take over in unloving ways, trampling on your hurts, ignoring them or avoiding them with various addictions and controlling behavior such as:
- Addictions to drugs, junk food, nicotine, alcohol, relationships, work, TV or gaming.
- Co-dependence - trying to control others with anger, violence, guilt or compliance - making others responsible for your sense of safety and worth.
- Staying in your head rather than being present in your body
- Self-judgment, shaming yourself
- Obsessive thinking, ruminating, worrying
- Resistance to self, others, spirit - to taking loving care of yourself
These forms of self-abandonment not only perpetuate fears of rejection, abandonment, aloneness, engulfment or failure, but they can contribute to illness. Inner Bonding is a powerful process for healing self-abandonment and learning to love and value yourself.
Through discussions, exercises and direct work with Dr. Margaret Paul or other Inner Bonding Facilitators, you learn the Six powerful Steps of Inner Bonding.
"Transformational Beyond Words! My heart and soul and true essence overflow with love and gratitude. I'm so eager and excited to go home and do Inner Bonding, and share this with my husband and son, and most of all MYSELF at any given moment." Kripalu Workshop, Margaret Dean Godhard, Mom, Educator, Gainesville, GA

"I found this workshop to be very informative, supportive, and just what I needed at this time in my life! All the information given and shared was extremely helpful in learning the Inner Bonding experience more fully. I definitely recommend this workshop!" L.A. Weekend Workshop, 11/04
"Life-altering. I've heard new concepts that helped me challenge my old ways of thinking and relating to myself and others. I am happy to share this moment with myself and my partner." L.A. Workshop, 1/08
"I felt that the information given to us was extraordinary. It gave us an outline and tangible steps and processes one could do that were unlike anything I had ever encountered before. What was most important, for me, was that unlike other workshops or seminars I had gone to, we were left with very specific ways to continue the process and a host of people (of course, including Margaret) whom we could connect to in the future." Kripalu, Mass. Workshop, 10/06
'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
"Wonderful, empowering and joyous. I feel this experience has been extremely positive on myself and my [inner] child and I am looking forward to seeing where it will lead me in the future."
"The workshop helped me see that there is a bridge between the science of
psychology and spirituality, that mind and spirit can exist harmoniously in one body.
The workshop helped me heal the holes in my heart bored there by the slow
drip of life's insanity." Omega Workshop, 5/04
