Daily InspirationWhat are the characteristics you generally notice in yourself and others? Do you often notice what is wrong or what is wonderful? Today, focus on noticing what is wonderful in yourself and others - and then notice how you feel toward yourself and others! By Dr. Margaret Paul
"I found it to be a loving, supportive environment in which to learn about the various parts of myself and to shift from anger and frustration to compassion and love. I've done quite a bit of this work. I always find it valuable and inspiring. This is the first time I've done it with a loved one, and it was great."
'I came here broken. My Wounded self was running my life and broke all aspects of it. I learned so much on who my Wounded self is. NOT ME. The relationship and conflict info. was Huge for me.' Weekend Workshop - Kripalu - Lenox, MA 9.14
"I realized how many manipulations and controlling behaviors I used. It was illuminating to acknowledge and love my wounded self - and liberating!

"The experience is one of the most profound I have ever experienced. As the program developed it became more and more clear that not only

"Very helpful, insightful, loving atmosphere, great tools…" L.A. Workshop, 1/08
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
