The Inner Bonding Workshop

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 higher spiritual guidance
  • 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, Margaret Dean Godhard, Mom, Educator, Gainesville, GA

"I intuitively knew this was the workshop for me.  It more than met my expectations.  I've never heard a facilitator take the words right out of my mouth and realize that she had gone through the exact same reactions, feelings, experiences in her relationships and not only her but all or almost all of us here at the workshop.  Thank you Dr. Margaret for creating the open, safe space.  I love your directness!  'Thank you.'" Art of Living, 5.18

"[Of most value was] The combination of conceptual understanding and practice, all in bite-size learning chunks. Inner Bonding is a psycho-spiritual technology that should be in every therapist's toolbox, and deserves a special place in the lives of all pursuing self-development!" Los Angeles Workshop, Feb. 2000
David Grudermeyer, Ph.D.

"It was very gentle, yet powerful. I have been doing Inner Bonding for 2 years and I was able to deepen my own understanding of the process. I loved the supportive environment and enjoyed the openness of the other participants. I was also able to deepen my connection with my child and spirit. Thank you for a wonderful experience!!!" Toronto Workshop - Toronto, Canada - 4/2001
Shelley Riutta

'The Inner Bonding workshop has taught me ways to deal with my feelings like no other program, book or therapist. I am amazed at what the workshop had to offer and will continue to offer as I learn to apply the six steps of Inner Bonding. I know that stumbling upon the Inner Bonding website was a sign from my higher guidance, and taking advantage of this Loving action was truly one of the best actions I could have taken. I would highly recommend this workshop to anyone who has the desire of becoming a more loving person. I can't wait to attend an Intensive workshop!' Southern California Weekend Workshop, 4.13

"This is a very high quality workshop.  I have learned more in one weekend about how to live a loving, joyous and wonderful life than I learned in my 52 years prior.  The tools and process are practical, make so much sense and will be so valuable in my life." Kripalu, 9.17
