Daily InspirationDo you play enough? Do you have creative time? Do you have enough fun? Do you have enough laughter in your life? Do you get enough rest? Do you get done the things you need to get done? Today, focus on creating balance in your life between work and play, between doing and being, between time with others and time alone. By Dr. Margaret Paul
'This was the greatest thing I ever did for myself. Taking this step forward knowing that I have a tool box with all the tools I need to start my Journey. I would recommend this to anyone that wants to start loving themselves.' Weekend Workshop - Kripalu - Lenox, MA 9.14
"Amazing! I really feel it combines cognitive behavioral therapy with spirituality in such a way that is more healing and meaningful than just changing one's thoughts. What brought it home to me is really visualizing my wounded child as an actual child and asking myself, 'Would I really speak to a child that way?'" L.A. Workshop, 1/08
"This is a beautiful synthesis of deep spiritual wisdom, psychological understanding of the human process and profound wisdom. Hooray for Margaret's clarity, kindness, compassion and brilliance. I am particularly struck by the simplicity and caring awareness of the absolute importance for healing the child within all of us and how beautifully this is accomplished (encountered) in Inner Bonding!"
'You are such a gift! The connection and love you shared with us was authentic and healing. You walk your talk and the evidence is in your peaceful, loving, joy-filled Spirit. I am most grateful for this opportunity and look forward to seeing you again.' Kripalu Workshop, 9.12
"This workshop helped me realize how my wounded self takes over and hinders me in life. The workshop was nurturing and intimate. The way I hope to be as a loving adult." LA Workshop, 7/05
"This workshop provided me with some very deep insights into what keeps me stuck in my life and how to get unstuck. The piece about connecting core shame with fear of feeling helpless sent ripples that shook me to my toes! Margaret was very skilled as a presenter. She was articulate, present, very responsive to the participants, insightful and loving."
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
