Daily InspirationWhen someone has hurt you deeply and you just want to get back at him or her, ask yourself: What is the high road? What is truly loving to myself? Will hurting another heal me? By Dr. Margaret Paul
'Wonderful experience, very instructive with a lot of practical role plays and lots of time for question and answer. A good way to deepen your understanding of the process.' Rowe, MA Workshop, 4/08
"After doing Inner Bonding for six months it was valuable to hear the process explained from beginning to end. Being new to this process it was amazing to share this process so intimately with others." Kripalu Workshop, Lenox, MA, 10/09
"I had an enlightening experience in this workshop and a wonderful connection with my Inner Child. I realized I have mostly been sharing my truth from a wounded child and my loving Adult needs to be there first for my Child before I try to get this from others. I am committed to continuing learning Inner Bonding" Toronto Workshop, April, 2000
Linda Atkinson -
"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."
"Everyone is always telling me to stop being so controlling. Margaret is the first one who has given me the tools to do it - a way to reconnect with my core - my inner child - and learn how to take responsibility and feel the hurts that lie underneath it all. I feel incredibly empowered." Kripalu Workshop, 9/08
Connie Florio Welton
"Absolutely wonderful experience! This has empowered me to be completely responsible for my own peace, happiness and joy. It is so freeing to know that it's okay to take care of myself w/out feeling selfish or unkind." LA Workshop, 7/05

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
