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

Today, allow joy to be your guide. Think thoughts that create inner joy. Take actions that create joy. Spirit has given us the experience of joy to let us know when we are on track with our beliefs, thoughts, and actions. Joy is Spirit's way of communicating to us that we are thinking and behaving in true and loving ways.
By Dr. Margaret Paul
"I am most impressed by how simple, yet effective the Inner Bonding process can be. I feel that I have grown from the experience and that I will use the Inner Bonding approach to continue my journey toward self-actualization."
'This was truly a life awakening experience for my sister and I. Being scared but okay to open up was challenging but extremely rewarding. I can't wait to take these tools and apply to my life at home. Margaret was fantastic and I felt her care for each one of us was sincere and true.' Weekend Workshop - Kripalu, Lenox, MA 9.14
'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
"This has been very freeing. It reinforced that I only have control over me and my behavior, no one else, and that my inner child is so important to my whole being."
"Being taken through the steps in this format was extremely helpful and
beneficial. The most benefit for me was watching and experiencing the work you did
with others individually. It took the workshop to a whole other level. I am so
blessed by your presence in my life and that you are truly the gifted healer
that you are. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!" Rowe, MA, 4/04
"I decided to come at the last minute and knowing nothing about the Inner Bonding process or the workshop leader. I leave here today sensing that I can learn to better love myself and to love others. I will need to learn to listen to my body, to access help from spirit, to know that I do not have to be alone with my pain, and to honor the joy and peace within me. This has been a sacred time."
