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

Daily InspirationToday, think about softness - the softness of your smile, of your kindness and caring, of the tenderness of your touch. There is such power in softness. Today, discern the difference between softness and weakness. Weakness is allowing others to run over you and control you. Softness is the result of a powerful loving Adult standing in your truth and being unafraid to express your love. By Dr. Margaret Paul

I recevied the emails with great articles the I share with my recovering friends. Great food for that. So grateful a friend saw my suffering and recommended your website. Ive been able to heal my traumas and share with others" Kripalu 9.18
'I read the Inner Bonding steps before I came, but now I understand them much better. I can identify my wounded self now and I understand what my core feelings are. I was feeling very lonely and my wounded self was telling me I was unloveable and I would be alone forever. I am learning that I am loveable and I have the ability to make myself happy. I don't need others to bring happiness to me.' Weekend Workshop - Anaheim Hills, CA 3.14
"So helpful to reconnect to spiritual guidance and a reminder to stay present and keep returning to my loving adult. You're a natural presenter." Kripalu9.18
"The workshop felt very safe, well-organized and well led. Even though I worked with others I felt like the process was mine. It is what I have been searching for, for a long time, and I believe I was here at the best time. The process I did with Margaret was a powerful learning experience. The workshop was very well balanced. I liked the way we moved from one method of working to another. [Margaret was] excellent - one of the best teachers I've learned from!" Toronto Workshop, April, 2000
