Daily InspirationYour emotions are a great gift, letting you know when you are on track or off track in your thinking and behavior, or when you need to attend to what is happening with a person or situation. Today, practice learning what your painful emotions are telling you, rather than avoiding them with your various addictions. By Dr. Margaret Paul
'As a 15 year old going to this Workshop with my Mom, I was obviously skeptical about whether it would be a huge waste of time or not. But after meeting some of the people and getting to know them, I realized that my age changed nothing. I was treated the same way. And I guess that made me open enough to get what I needed out of the experience. I feel so much more mentally prepared to take things on and I never thought I'd have that.' Rowe, MA Workshop, 5.12
"Thank you! A wonderful taste of reconnecting with myself - a loving, gentle
weekend with some real tools to bring home." Rowe, MA, 4/04
"Although I have been doing Inner Bonding for almost 2 years through the books, I was still amazed at how I was able to gain some important insights into a problem I have been struggling with for about 1 year. So being able to do it with Margaret's guidance was wonderful. Not only that but, there was such a 'holistically healing' experience of being able to get away, eat organic healthy food, do yoga & meditation, that brought the point of doing Inner Bonding 'home'." Kripalu Workshop, 9/08
"Intimate, life and love changing for me. Has deepened my commitment to Love - of myself, family, friends, people. Has deepened my commitment of who/what I love already - Nature, Love, Hearts and unknown." Rowe Weekend Workshop, 5/06
"I LOVED this week-end Workshop. This is the second one I've taken and I still got a tremendous amount of benefit from this experience. I'm so grateful for this work." L.A. Workshop, 12/06
"The workshop has taught me the importance of connecting with my inner child and how to do that. I appreciate being taught how to love myself - something I have been starving to do but was not sure how."

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
