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 God
- 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 48 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, food, nicotine, alcohol, relationships, work, TV or video games.
- 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
- Resistance to self, others, Spirit - to taking loving care of yourself
These forms of self-abandonment perpetuate fears of rejection, abandonment, aloneness, engulfment or failure, which heal through the practice of Inner Bonding.
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, 9/08, Margaret Dean Godhard, Mom, Educator, Gainesville, GA

Daily InspirationLet joy be your guide. Our joy is how God lets us know we are being loving to ourselves and to others. What fills your heart and brings you joy? By Dr. Margaret Paul
'Prior to this weekend workshop, I had read a few books, worked through the website, listened to Podcasts. Having the live sessions, WITH OTHERS LEARNING AND ASKING QUESTIONS, made it all solidify. Very happy with my decision to invest in this weekend.' Kripalu Workshop, 9.12
“Stel, thank you for your knowledge, love, compassion and excellence teaching style. It was so easy to connect and learn from you. Thank you for your authenticity and choosing this path to help others” Nov 2018
'I learned the difference between my wounded self & my inner child, the difference between answers, & learning by doing the work, & direct knowing. The difference between taking, giving & sharing love, the intention behind my actions to gain control to get love, avoid pain & feel safe. I know I have a lot to do, but as Margaret said it is never too late.' Weekend Workshop - Anaheim Hills, CA 3.14
"The Inner Bonding Workshop has helped me to see myself more clearly. I've made a commitment to take care of my little girl and I'm looking forward to attending a 5-Day Intensive as soon as possible. I would recommend this to anyone who wants to connect with themselves and others."
'I've been doing some Inner Child work with myself for awhile now but it feels more structured, now that I am aware of the wounded self component to the work. The work before felt scattered & confusing and now that I am able to access my Loving Adult when my Wounded Self pops up, I'm able to learn with far less judgment what purpose my Wounded Self is serving and what is in my highest good. Thank you!' Kripalu Workshop, 9.12
'Very enlightening. Terrific primer for long-term bonding work.' Week-end workshop - Anaheim Hills, CA 2.15
