"After 30 years of personal growth work, my experience in the Intensive gave me the tools to embrace myself and live my life more fully. At 56, it's time for me to know joy without reservation. I had such a need for the simple basics of how to love myself. I know this practice of inner Bonding will allow me to be myself, and reclaim my personal power and creativity. Just knowing how to navigate when my wounded self is triggered will be an exciting practice. The context of the Intensive is safe and transformative; a place to be reborn."

An Inner Bonding Intensive is like being handed a recipe for the most healing dish you can imagine and then showing you how you by yourself can cook it, and then eat it, and share it with others, and bring health to your whole system of being on this planet. Basically, it shows you how to take really good care of yourself."

"I have been on the healing path for a long time and found that this intensive gave me some of the most profound support I have ever received. I found the strength to look at and feel some extremely difficult issues. I am a survivor of childhood trauma and feel that my body and heart had the chance and safety to open and own what happened to me and to consider that healing is really possible. Thank you so much. I am flooded with gratitude." Lucerne Valley, CA - May 2002

"I have been working on a path of self understanding and growth for about 7 years. I have read books, gone to therapy, worked on my spiritual connection. Inner Bonding has allowed me to bring this all together - as well as giving me a key to continue my growth - not with outside or external motivators but with an inner motivator." Lucerne Valley, CA - May 2002

Dorothy Lowrie,Business Analyst

"The second time around has been extremely valuable, I've had a real experience to know the value of unconditional love, living my truth and that I'm never really alone. I'm so thankful that I listened to Phyllis - my guidance - and came here even though I really didn't know why I was coming. As Colin says "this shit works". As a final note: the second time around is better because I'm better." Lucerne Valley Intensive, CA - May 2002

"This has been my third intensive and I'm so full of gratitude. I've healed so much since my last one. I've had so many changes in my life that if someone had told me that this was going to happen, I would have thought they were crazy or mad. Thanks to Inner Bonding,I'm enjoying life more and more and freeing myself gradually of all the blocks, false beliefs and addictions that were deeply instilled in me. Thank you, Margie, thank you God and thanks to myself." February 2002 - Lucerne Valley, CA

"I cannot put words to my experience that could possibly express it. Some things must be experienced, lived and felt. The Inner Bonding 5-Day intensive did for me what a year of private therapy didn't. It gave me the tools to truly begin to heal myself and grow.

"Before coming here I was kind of resistant to coming to the Intensive. But after coming here and experiencing the bond with not only myself but with all the other people, it was a wonderful experience.

"I came here [to the intensive] with no knowledge of Inner Bonding and with the intent to prove it wasn't for me.

Lucerne Valley, CA - 7/01

Eileen Hutcheson,Flower Essence Practitioner
St. Louis,Missouri

Although it is impossible to actually describe the intensive experience, I will make the following attempt. I experienced true healing of emotional and spiritual wounds, the warmth of an open loving environment, and the grace and love that is God. Prior to the intensive I was a carpenter with no hammer and no diagram. The intensive experience and Inner Bonding have given me the tools with which to build the "dream house" that is my life and access to the plans. Since the intensive I have felt like a caged bird who has been given the freedom to fly. Just as a side note, the accommodations were wonderful. The food was excellent. Lucerne Valley, Royal Way Ranch and the desert were more beautiful than I could have ever imagined. Lucerne Valley, 7/01

Danielle Koprowski,Accountant

"All couples who are looking for an answer, this seems to be the place to go. This has helped where everything before didn't." Couples Intensive, Lucerne Valley, CA - 8/01

"I've known the power of the practice of Inner Bonding for several years. As I've taken this journey I've found the intensive experience to be the safest and most compassionate place I could ever imagine. It is always amazing and joyous to experience deep, transformational work and to watch as others go to a deeper level of healing. I can think of no greater gift that I have ever given myself than to participate in the intensive experience. I found Santa Fe incredible. The retreat center has a wonderful serenity that contributes such a calming energy for this deep work. The closeness of a wonderful and challenging hiking trail up a nearby mountain was one of my favorite things. I often had profound experiences of clarity there." Santa Fe, New Mexico - 4/2001

Patricia Gerrish,Nurse
Hazel Park

"My second intensive here has been a wonderful experience. I noticed I was different from the first intensive by a large degree in that I did not feel the overwhelming need for approval. I feel I was here to work and that's what I did. The space held was extremely safe. Margie, Valerie and Colin really supported each person often through some very difficult work. I could really feel their love for us and the work. The repetition of the Six Steps really helps to start to get it in your body. The issues others worked on often related to my own issues and their work brought up mine to look at. Retreat Centre - loved it - felt comfortable - the views are magnificent, the energy is peaceful and alive - food exquisite." Santa Fe, New Mexico - 4/2001

Nancy Cronyn,Psychotherapist, RN

"This 5-Day Intensive has been the most profound inner experience of my life! It is a very powerful process. And it really works!!! I've learned to be mindful of my feelings, aware of my resistance and compassionate to my inner child, while connecting to my Spiritual Guidance. Inner Bonding changes my life and positively affects the life of my husband and children. I highly recommend it to anyone who is open to learning." Lucerne Valley, CA

"The couples intensive helped illuminate the common dynamics (resist/control, etc.) that we experience in our relationship. I learned from everybody's work (including our own) how I can lovingly learn through conflict." Couples Intensive, Lucerne Valley, CA - 8/01

Sylvia Poareo -,Social Worker

"I find it hard to put into words, mostly because I cannot put love into words. I know now what it means to be my own best friend. What's more, I have the tools for being that friend. I'm profoundly thankful." Lucerne Valley, CA

Linda Joanou,Artist

"Absolutely mind-shattering. Inner Bonding is an incredibly powerful tool to use on the journey of life. I've had an outwardly successful life, but have felt for a long time that something was missingÖ´hat life was less than full (sometimes totally empty). I came to the Intensive hoping to find some guidance about being more fulfilled in life. What I got was so much more; real, personal connection to Spirit, Energy, the higher force that I had theoretically believed was there, but NEVER had more than a brief, experiential glance." Lucerne Valley, CA

Erik Blum,Technology
San Francisco,California

"Relief. Internal relief. I knew something was missing in my heart and life. A heaviness was weighing me down. I was able to discover why I was feeling aloneness, codependency, addiction and pain. Now I can allow myself to discover and enjoy the real me. The environment & love through an intimate group setting is relaxing and very comforting. My belief in a Higher Power, and guidance from Spirit is a strong rediscovered comfort." Ossining, NY - 7/01

Lisa M. Davis,Interior Designer

"April 3 is the day I was born. July 27, 2001 is the day I began to live! I thank the wonderful people who shared from the heart (throughout this intensive). I started the intensive with tremendous turmoil mixed with an inability to get in touch with my true feelings. I'm leaving these 5 days with a glowing feeling inside. It shines bright from the love I feel for my core essence and from the hope I have for my future based on the "tools" I've been provided. From the bottom of my heart, thank you Margie, Patti, Nancy, Bob and my fellow intensive attendees." Ossining, NY - 7/01

Erika,Marketing Director

"I came to find a process to connect with & develop a spiritual process. I was very impressed with the simplicity and profundity of what we did. The process was not mystified and very accessible. I also found the sharing of other tools and techniques to be very generous ad useful. The tapping energy process was absolutely healing." Ossining, NY - 7/01

Tanya Marquette,Bldg. Proj. Consult./Homeopath

"I found the Intensive to be a focused, safe and intentional space where I was able to work on issues current in my life and receive insight and support and expert coaching in creating new ways of being with myself with Spirit and with others." Couples Intensive, Lucerne Valley, CA - 8/01

Tom Pemberton,Massage Entrepreneur

"The Intensive experience brought home the reality that we are all responsible for our feelings. In a couple, it's so easy to blame and not realize that it's the inner child that's needing attention. I am grateful to have witnessed 5 other couples work on similar issues as my husband and I. So much thanks to Margie, Nancy and Bob. I'm certain we will return!" Couples Intensive, Lucerne Valley, CA - 8/01

Nancy Swisher,Counselor, Writer

Rick Fria,Construction Management

"It has been my second intensive. I can not say with words how the whole Inner Bonding process has affected my life. For the first time in my life I'm feeling hopeful. I feel that there is a way out and that it is in my hands. I deeply thank God for bringing me here, for the people, for the space, for the assistants and for Margaret Paul. And I thank my Inner Kid for forgiving me and still loving me. Thank you all." Lucerne Valley, CA - 11/2000

Pedro Alvarez,Marketing Consultant

"I came with the intention of being open to learn and I was highly rewarded. I have new insights into who I am, what I need and, with Margie's help, how to get it all! The group experience added to the effectiveness as we all worked and openly exchanged our thoughts, feelings and experiences. This was a really safe place to explore my demons and realize the beauty of who I really am." COUPLES Intensive - Lucerne Valley, CA - October 2000

Mark Lininger,Financial Services
Los Angeles,California

"These 5 days have been an immersion in exploration and love. An opportunity to integrate a healthy approach to learning to care for ourselves in a spiritual way into our daily lives.
