We cannot get to know each other just through talking. We get to know each other deeply through being - laughing, crying, playing, loving, conflict, learning. Words are easy - anyone can say anything about themselves, but we cannot hide our intent in our real interactions. We cannot know someone's heart through words alone.

The changes since the Inner Bonding intensive are fundamental. I'm enjoying the best relationship ever with my spiritual Teacher. The days of working hard to heal my wounds are over. There is an ease to the healing and living process now that is exquisite. As a result of this wonderful inner relationship, my outer relationship is changing. Everything I have dreamed of is becoming a reality just because I'm in love with myself. I feel deeply loved a lot of the time.
The environment was beautiful in its setting and a safe place to do this work. Margie created the safety. The great value is in the recognition of intention to act in a loving and compassionate manner toward myself.
'It was an incredible experience of growth, learning and healing. It was so important for me in terms of breaking through my denial, and to be able to make that commitment to myself to being loving. What I liked most about the Intensive is that it is life-changing when I apply all the tools that I've learned. The intensity of the personal experience in addition to learning from others' experiences allows for deep healing and transformation. Some benefits of the Intensive are seeing tremendous role modeling of being a Loving Adult. It is a safe, loving community that is formed. You are able to create life-long connections and relationships with like-minded individuals. I feel such gratitude for Margaret and this experience - what an incredible gift!'

"Words fail in describing the sheer brilliance of the Inner Bonding process. I have been in intensive therapy, 12-step and other self-help studies consistently for over a decade, and Inner Bonding has provided a key to unlocking true healing. The Intensive was fun, challenging, intense, freeing and eye opening. Five days is the perfect amount of time to take a journey from the bondage of self to self love and freedom. I've made connections to the other participants that I hope will last a lifetime." Santa Barbara, CA Intensive, 2/08
"The experience has been very rewarding and beneficial in a much deeper way than regular therapy. Experiencing and 'practicing' the process was the crucial component for me. Being surrounded by the caring, loving & unconditional support of others made this an invaluable experience. The setting was very comforting and the connections made with others added to feeling a sense of community. I look forward to the ongoing support and being part of the Inner Bonding community!

"I started very scared, very depressed, very skeptical and ended with answers I
needed to heal myself from the misery I was going through. The words scared
me (Spiritual, Guidance, among others) but after participating I got the tools
I needed to begin in my healing."Santa Barbara Intensive, 11/04
