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, 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

“It was an excellent workshop. So graceful. I really appreciate having additional opportunities to attached workshop. Everything was amazing. I really appreciated your openness and honesty.” Nov 2018
'Margaret's teaching of how to connect with all my key parts has been wonderful. I finish this weekend with a true intention to learn more about myself in an active way and to connect to my Child and Guidance.' Weekend Workshop - Kripalu - Lenox, MA 9.14
"It was an incredible experience. It was far better than I could imagine. I can't believe the depth of feelings I accessed in two days. The combination of lecture and 6-Step session was very rich. Adding the group and pain sharing made it a great method for learning through the four strategies. Margaret was excellent: a top rank presenter, a good facilitator and wonderfully kind human being. She was generous with giving information and with sharing meaningful examples from her own life." L.A. Weekend Workshop, 11/04

"This process is a miracle for me. I have tried my whole life to have a connection with God and not until I found the Inner Bonding process, have I been able to make that connection. This process is helping me get in touch with my truth and honoring my truth without needing validation from others. I am looking forward to a passionate life full of love by connecting to God and bringing that love to myself and letting that love shine."
'Unlike many courses and workshops I've done, Inner Bonding speaks to all aspects of who we are: Mind, Body, Spirit, Emotions. I appreciated very much the smallness of the group and the intimacy that it allowed. This work is profound. Thank you, Margaret.' LA Workshop, 3.7.10
'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
