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, 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

Daily InspirationBeing safe is not about controlling others and outcomes. Being safe is not about staying in the mind and figuring things out. You will feel safe when you connect with your spiritual Guidance, who has your well-being at heart at all times, and will guide you toward those actions and situations that support your safety and highest good. By Dr. Margaret Paul
"The workshop opened me up to a part of myself I never knew I had. Margaret was absolutely amazing! Professional, compassionate, beautifully open to learning."
"This is my 6th Inner Bonding Group Experience (Workshops and Intensives) and the review was alive for me and inspiring, deepening my practice and commitment to taking loving action for my highest good. It is like reading wisdom literature -- the words come alive in different ways, reaching into your heart in new places, transforming you anew." L.A. Weekend Workshop, 11/04
"I found a way to complete the work I have been doing for so many years. I'm intuitive and like moving from one 'plane' to another. I'm excited. You validated the acceptance that no one is going to do it for me. The timing was right for this. [Margaret was] very excellent - she is living her teachings. Rowe, MA Workshop, April 2000
"I almost did not come back for the 2nd day but I'm so glad I did. I didn't really believe that there really was any help and relief from the feelings I'm having but I realize now that there is. I feel really hopeful and I'm excited to finally becoming my own best friend." L.A. Workshop, 12/06
My experience was one of completely letting go to new ideas and learning. I feel renewed and able to work in a new direction for myself. I have been anxious and depressed for years and now know that was my wounded self. I will care for myself daily.' Kripalu Workshop, 9.15 - Lenox, MA
"The workshop was very supportive and sincere. The experience was very nurturing. It helped shed a lot of light on the dynamics of the reason and feeling phenomena and what their purposes are. I really liked the emphasis on the spiritual aspect." Los Angeles, CA - September 2001
