My experience in the IB intensive was more powerful than 10 years of counselling.  My marriage was transformed when I attended my first intensive and then my husband started practicing IB with me and we attended together.  We are truly achieving intimacy in our relationship.  It has exceeded all expectations.  It is the best environment to heal self judgement and shame.  I have never been happier in my life.  Dr. Margaret Paul models the healthy adult.  I am filled with gratitude to have the opportunity to work with her.  I would highly recommend an IB intensive to anyone who desires to grow in body, mind, and spirit.

Margie Bult,Retired R.N., Homemaker
Springfield, MO

'This work that Margaret is doing is critical. I finally learned and saw how often my wounded child is running my life, even though I am a very capable adult.  This Intensive gave me a chance to work on a number of my own false beliefs, but even more important than that, I learned a lot from the one on one work that Margaret did with other people.  I think everyone would benefit by coming to an Intensive like this.' 5-Day Intensive, 6.15 - Loveland, CO



'Being in a loving supportive environment while getting in touch with my biggest frailties, and others, has definitely ignited some sacred force on my growth in love and compassion...being able to see the essence of everyone while dealing with our wounded selves has renewed my trust in life.  Inner Bonding is truly a precious resource for me... the step-by-step process is helping to bring me back to a meaningful relationship with myself and the world around me. The Intensive has also helped me immensely to consolidate the practice of Inner Bonding into my life.  For me it was a rite of passage in my life. I truly needed to work through my emotions with someone who could offer an unconditional presence in Love. I could have never done that by myself. I am grateful to you, Dr Margaret and to all that supports you. Being back home never felt as much like home as it does now. Thank you! Thank you!',  5-Day Intensive, 10.15 - Loveland, CO

'Inner Bonding is a very comprehensive 6-step process that has empowred me to connect with my higher power, feel my deep feelings & emotions and look at the challenges in life with awareness of my wounded self and the true essence of my inner child. It provides the techniques to compassionately love ourselves which is the spiritual path.' 5-Day Intensive, 10.15 - Loveland, CO

Christina Low,Tantra Coach

'My wife and I attended the 5-Day Intensive in Loveland, CO. It was a great experience of learning how to connect with our Inner Child & loving presence.  To honor ourselves & to be aware of what we are telling ourselves and no loner letting our wounded self control us. Inner Bonding is a great process to begin to live & love ourselves daily.' 5-Day Intensive, 10.15 - Loveland, CO

'I came in with the intention to deepen my understanding of the Inner Bonding process and it did not fail to deliver.  It was a mind and soul opening experience in a safe & open environment.  I am leaving with a new love and understanding of myself (my inner child, my wounded self, my loving adult & my guidance), and feel I have something I can work with when I am back home and in the real world.' 5-Day Intensive, 10.15 - Loveland, CO

Shannon Hamrick

'I'm proud to have the willingness and courage to be at this Intensive. It's difficult to look at things to improve my life, however I always feel better afterwards! Before Inner Bonding I never knew it was possible to feel this good. Inner Bonding has given me the tools I need to grow up. I really trust this process, Margaret Paul makes a safe environment to learn & grow.' 3-Day Advanced Intensive, 2.15 - Anaheim Hills, CA

Linda Joanou,Artist

'Very powerful & life changing process. Dr. Paul is a true Master who embodies unconditional love & creates a safe & loving space where very deep pain can be felt, healed and released.' 5-Day Intensive - 6.14 - Loveland, CO


'This Intensive has been life-changing. It's been designed to allow each participant the opportunity to learn to love themselves and others. It's possible to get in touch with yourself at a soul level. As a result, I feel prepared to create my own happiness & share that with others in magical ways.' 5-Day Intensive, 6.14 - Loveland, CO

San Antonio,TX

'Immersion into the Inner Bonding process was extremely beneficial to me. I learned so much by watching Dr. Margaret stay tuned in with her feelings & reflect what she experienced in interactions with others.  I love reading the materials online, but there's nothing like experiencing the process in person for myself & others. I learned as much or more watching Dr. Margaret's interactions with others as she helped us all understand the Inner Bonding process. Dr. Margaret is so skilled at putting feelings into words and expressing them in a clear, direct ways with others. This was a very safe place to express difficult feelings, get support from others, and also learn ways that the IB process can help me move forward & change my response to difficult feelings.' 5-Day Intensive, 6.14 - Loveland, CO

Susan Gallagher,Education

'I am very grateful for my experience at the Intensive. The Inner Bonding process is very effective and actionable. I made more progress dealing with difficult emotions during the Intensive then I have made during years of therapy. I recommend it highly.' 5-Day Intensive, 6.14 - Loveland, CO

Warren Huff,Executive

'An opportunity to learn about yourself through Margaret Paul and through participants. Five days allows time to process, bond, process, ask questions and go deeper.  As the work of Inner Bonding is a life long process, having 5 days of uninterrupted time to focus on all the different aspects of the steps and how they are practiced for yourself is invaluable.  Much learning from watching others struggle & learn from listening to Margaret and themselves. Reassuring to see how everyone has essentially the same wound.' 5-Day Intensive, 6.15 - Loveland, CO

Winnie Huff,Lawyer

'I had no idea what to expect when I signed up for the intensive. All I knew was that I was in a crisis and that another period of intense depression was on the horizon. I'm so glad that I decided to step away from everything and come to Colorado for the intensive! The Sunrise Ranch is an absolutely beautiful place and the ideal location for this type of work. I'm writing this now a week after the intensive and I still feel a profound change within me: I am more calm, centered and connected. I am not looking for approval and love from external sources as I have done so consistently before, I am now giving this to myself. Even though it is clear to me that I have a lot more work to do and that it is going to be an ongoing process, I already feel that my relationship with myself has changed dramatically: I have a lot more love and compassion for myself and I feel that I'm on a very positive and exciting path of self-love and trust.' 5-Day Intensive 10.15, Loveland, CO

It's incredible the energy of the leader within the group and it's amazing how we all learn from each other through the experience.

Brenda Spaude,Commercial Photographer

'My experience of the Intensive was being part of a diverse group of the most amazing people - each there for their own growth yet learning from the work of each other member.  Dr. Margaret Paul teaches the actual Inner Bonding process through the direct work she does with each participant and she creates a safe, supportive and nurturing environment where I was privileged to see each member of our group make life-changing breakthroughs.  The best part is that I am leaving here knowing how to continue my growth using the Inner Bonding process.'  Colorado 5-Day Intensive - June 2015

Tracy May

'I participated in Margaret's 30 Day Inner Bonding class, had several personal coaching skype sessions with Margaret, and am now taking her Relationships 30 Day Course. I have been in a very sad, wounded space since a breakup 7 weeks ago. I felt so incredibly lost in my wound and was becoming more and more in touch about how I had and was abandoning myself over and over. I was very anxious to come to the Intensive and was feeling very vulnerable to authentically show up in pain. The Intensive provided me with a family of like minded souls all willing to support and hold a space for me to feel safe. With the work in the middle of the circle with Margaret, and participating in everyone else's work, brought me home to myself. The practice of Inner Bonding is priceless to finding my way back to my center. Years and years of help didn't heal my low self worth or teach me not to abandon myself.  Inner Bonding does. I'm so grateful and I will attend again and again.'  Colorado Intensive 4.15

Terri O\'Grady,Writer, Photographer, Consultant, Coach

'Initially on arriving at the Intensive I was very apprehensive, but, as we progressed through the work it started to become very evident that deep healing was taking place for all involved. I feel I got to address some deep core issues, and also leave the Intensive with a toolset that allows me to integrate the work into my daily life.'  Colorado Intensive 4.15

P.H.,Group Head of IT

'Margaret facilitated a safe space for me to grow and learn and share and deepen my understanding and ability to love myself. The Inner Bonding 5-Day Intensive experience and the beautiful people in the group will stay with me as a powerful reminder of what is possible when I dare to accept my vulnerability and ask for guidance.'  Colorado Intensive 4.15

Caroline Waters,Recording Artist/ Vocal Freedom Therapist
Los Angeles, CA Amal, Sweden

'The 5-Day Intensive has been emotionally, spiritually, physically & intellectually amazing & healing! The toolbox of options that has been revealed is hope-filled beyond measure; my missing link! I am blessed immeasurably for the gentle, loving kindness Margaret & Mark facilitated God's Spirit. The trauma release processes used as well as the simplicity of core self & deep compassion for self has been genius.'  Colorado Intensive 4.15

Celia Hoenig,LMFT
Seal Beach,CA

'Excellent. Dr. Paul walks the talk. Because she shows up grounded & in love, it makes it easier to open up. The experiential nature of the workshop makes it easy to incorporate immediately.  The group experience is helpful to provide practice & triggers to work on right on the spot.'  Colorado Intensive 4.15

Shelly Byrne,EarthDay Trec Adventures/Adventure Life Coach

To say I’m grateful is doing the Intensive a disservice.  Grateful feels like a “typical" thing to say and NOTHING about this weekend felt typical.  It was not the “same old therapy”.  I have been in therapy at different times in my life and the same issues were always discussed...again and again and again.  And while traditional therapy is a brave step for someone to take when they need help, it just wasn’t enough for me - something was still missing. Inner Bonding is like finding that last missing piece to a puzzle!  It is logical, practical and results oriented.  It is a tool that works.  Already today I was able to catch quite a few false beliefs!  I listened for them and stopped when I heard them.  I took the time to know where they came from and I allowed myself to feel the hurt that  I know was damaging to me as a child.  Then I let myself know that it wasn’t the truth about me and finally, I let myself feel what it feels like when you are loving to yourself.  I know that I can and will do these few simple steps to retrain my brain to know love.  It WILL be my sacred privilege to take care of and love soul…my essence. Thank you Margaret.  You are a miracle and I will be forever in your debt.  Southern California Advanced Intensive - 2.15

'The Intensive was awesome.  If anyone has ever felt unhealed, alone or misunderstood - this class is just what is needed.  It is awesome to watch Dr. Paul at work.'  Colorado Intensive 10.14


'This is my second Intensive and all I can say is extremely Powerful!  Dr. Paul is an extremely compassionate Master Teacher and Healer.  I highly recommend you to give yourself this gift of your true self.'  Colorado Intensive 10.14

Scott F.

'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

Philippe Carroll,Farmer
Fort Wayne, IN

'Wow!  I am so glad I decided to come to the Intensive.  It has changed my life by changing my relationship with myself.  I have come to realize how I was abandoning myself and instead focusing on others.  I was in a pattern of taking care of others and not looking after my own needs.  I was also not owning my gifts and my power.  I came in knowing instinctively that I am doing the right thing for myself and I leave the Intensive now with a full, grateful heart.  Do yourself a favor - this work will change your life!'  Colorado Intensive 10.14

Dipika Kapadia,Spiritual Teacher
Seattle, WA

'This experience has been phenomenal in deepening my understanding of Inner Bonding, and to continue my self quest.  I fully embrace it as part of my growth, wisdom and courage to nurture inner peace and love in all aspects of my life.  Most important to me is the constant connection to Spirit and Guidance.  I thank you for this incredibly enriching experience.'  Colorado Intensive 10.14

Liliane Carroll,Grief Counselor
Fort Wayne, IN

'I really benefited from witnessing the processes of the other participants.  Their issues touched off my own and I was going through my own healing with them.  It was such a safe space for being vulnerable and doing deep work.'  Colorado Intensive 10.14

Kirsty Mckay
Christchurch, New Zealand

'The Intensive exceeded my expectations.  The atmosphere, safe environment, fun and gentle support by Margaret & Carla & Stel, provided the most amazing place in which to heal, learn and grow.  I feel I made friends in the workshop and at the Ranch.  Sunrise was also the perfect place to do the workshop - a loving, peaceful retreat.  I am definitely going back.'  Colorado Intensive 10.14

Estella,MSc Psychology Student
London, UK

'If you want to live before you die, if you want a true taste of freedom, peace, love and joy - this is the way.'  Colorado Intensive 10.14

Barbara Kepinska

'Margaret's compassionate and non-judgmental presence provides the ideal model for how we can learn to be with our Selves in Inner Bonding: to be present with our fears, our false beliefs, our immature efforts to cope with pain & wounding that turn into maladaptive patterns.  All find a safe container for healing in the Inner Bonding process. Thank you.' Colorado Intensive 4.14

Paula T. Dimeck

'It was scary to be here with my partner.  It was a totally different experience from going alone 2 years ago.  But I again have learned invaluable lessons that will continue to help me learn to evolve in love.' Colorado Intensive 4.14

The desire to control and not be controlled is so great in many people that it often overrides caring about self and others. When you feel pulled at by someone to do what they want, do you go into automatic compliance or resistance? Next time you feel the pull, stop and ask yourself, "What is in my highest good, to do what this person wants or not?" This way you are making your own choices rather than being controlled by the other person or by your resistance.
