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

By Dr. Margaret Paul
"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."
"Fulfilling and rewarding experience. I feel empowered to work on Inner
Bonding with myself. Inner Bonding process is very simple and very hard at the same
time. I know it will be a big commitment and I feel very ready for that. It
helped me to see that I am not only responsible for myself, but to the entire
universe by Inner Bonding with myself." Rowe, MA, 4/04
'I have known and read the Inner Bonding books, but this experience created the pathway for me to see how I can do the work on my own. Also in the safe, trusting environment I was able to allow or be willing to learn about a core wound that I had not connected to before. Profound - Thank you!' Dr. Margaret's love & compassion is incredible. Thank you for all that you do.' Week-end workshop - Anaheim Hills, CA 2.15
'This has felt life changing for me. I met my Inner Child for the first time. Really heard her. I now realize that a lifetime of abandoning myself has caused a lot of pain. I am grateful for the concrete tools to begin to develop a Loving Adult that can listen to and pay attention to a long neglected core self. Thank you!' Southern California Weekend Workshop, 4.13
'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
My experience has been eye opening. I’ve learned a lot about myself during this process. I’ve also learned about my parents, partner and past traumas. I feel I have the information now to be able to deal with my anxiety and relationship issues in a healthy way now. Margaret, has a beautiful soul! I appreciate Margaret sharing her history, wisdom and insight on life. Thank you for creating Inner Bonding for all of us.
