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 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, 9/08, Margaret Dean Godhard, Mom, Educator, Gainesville, GA

I remember once being humble in my youth. I abandoned it for a more powerful being within. Now I long for those simpler times of freedom.

'I've done a fair bit of Inner Child work. This was the first time I really connected with my inner child! I also learned a process to be present as the adult when exploring painful feelings. The workshop was fabulous. Thank you!' Southern California Weekend Workshop, 4.14
It helped me understand the process more. I took the “Love Yourself” course and this workshop continued the learning. It was a more in depth experience. Really understanding it. Dr. M. Paul answers your questions. I learn from other questions and examples she gives that I could relate to me.
'I learned about the core feelings—deep down—and why I try to control others. And why I sabotage myself from my own Amazingness!' Los Angeles Inner Bonding Workshop, 4.12
'Being here has been very Self-affirming. I feel as though I have taken action on what it means to love myself by being here. I am saying to my Inner Child - you matter, you're important, I love you and I am committed to taking care of you. I feel more responsible for myself and my feelings. I feel more capable of standing up for myself, and I feel empowered to let go of my addiction to approval from others.' Los Angeles Workshop, 1/09
"It is the first workshop where time flies! I learned a lot about myself and I am embracing a new road in life. I enjoyed learning this simple yet challenging process. I will make it part of my daily routine."
