Daily InspirationConsciously notice and think about what you are grateful for and what brings you joy. Notice how you feel when your thoughts are on what you want rather than on what you don't want. By Dr. Margaret Paul
"The couples intensive is the best gift anyone can give to themselves and their spouse." Couples Intensive, Lucerne Valley, CA - 8/01
It has been one week since our intensive came to a close, and I find myself quietly reflecting in gratitude for the experience. And yet, the first phrase that comes to mind to describe it is MIND BLOWING (although mind expanding would probably be a more apt term!). The Inner Bonding system is an amazingly inclusive approach to healing, bridging the gap between psychological and spiritual truth in a wonderfully integrative way, illuminating no gap ultimately exists. For me, this has worked almost magically, helping to connect different parts of myself which I've spent years fearfully defending. And on a deep, intrinsic level, this has created a more authentic, intimate experience of Self -- interpersonally and intrapersonally. I still have a long way to go, but somehow, I've walked away from our time together with a somatic knowing that I'm more than up for the ride -- it is indeed, as Margie describes, a sacred privilege. I met two of my spiritual guides for the first time on this journey, and luckily for me, they both agreed to come back with me to New York!
'This Intensive has challenged me in the deepest of ways. I was not always happy about it, but it was exactly what I needed and it will stay with me for the rest of my life. I felt I was unable to release my grief for the death of my Father when I was 6. But Dr. Margaret Paul along with the Facilitators were able to create such a safe space, that I was able to jump-start that process. Most of all it was made clear that it is my responsibility and that I have to move into the intention to learn and open my heart.' Colorado Intensive 10.14
'Before the Inner Bonding Intensive, I had suffered major anxiety and depression for most of my adult life. I tried countless ways of getting "rid" of it. Learning Inner Bonding at the Intensive finally gave me the tools I needed to take care of my emotions, to be in tune with my Inner Child, and to take loving action in positive, fulfilling and exciting ways! I'm so excited for the relief that I feel! I know that it's more than just a band-aid, but a long-lasting strategy for life!!' Santa Barbara Intensive, 2.12
