"I learned a great deal at the Intensive, both personally and professionally. Personally, through my personal work and the work of others, I have learned about the dysfunctional patterns in my life and how I can change them. Professionally, I learned how to be a better therapist by watching the amazing gifts of Margaret. Her loving attention to each person has been an inspiration to me, and the growth we all achieved is extraordinary." Santa Barbara Intensive, 2/06

"This was one of the best weekdends of my life. Such love, support, deep healing, growth and fun too. The layers of the wounded self are so deep and tricky. Each intensive I attend with an intention to learn I'm able to explore and heal the same core issues at a deeper level and move thru them much more quickly. Thanks to Margaret and the group for such a deep, rich and delightful experience. If you have attended a 5 day intensive give yourself a gift of an advanced intensive, it is sooo worth it."

"Margaret Paul is a Wizard. She gives you tools to do personal transformation. Tools that you can carry with you everywhere, and you don't need any high-tech for it. Tools that will bring you the lost part of yourself. This Intensive is way beyond anything I could have imagined. We shared common human stories of our woundedness and different ways we expressed it, and our struggle to change. And we started to change. It was a blessing to see people starting to understand what we were doing to ourselves, believing that others are doing it to us." Intensive, Lucerne Valley, CA, 7/05

"The Intensive is very unique. It's a 5-Day Retreat consisting of 12 participants. Margaret and her Assistant facilitated the group in healing and growing. Individual work is done but everyone learns from it. It is wonderful to see how we are all so human and wounded, but there is a choice in every moment to be a Loving Adult with Guidance to feel joy, love and peace." Intensive, Lucerne Valley, CA, 7/05

I feel I have a clear understanding of how to take care of myself by listening and feeling and honoring my true essence. To heal oneself is truly an empowering process. Margaret Paul is the most amazing communicator I have ever met. This is not a voodoo, snake oil, hocus-pocus process. It is about what is truth and what is not." Santa Fe, NM, 4.05

"It was my third Intensive and another great experience. It's amazing to me how at each time I discover new issues and I work on them. It's also a great spiritual experience of communion with other people. Learning from other people's work is very valuable for me too." Santa, Fe, NM, 4/05

Kashia Coulouvrat,Physician

"An Amazing experience!!! Sharing we experienced with other participants was so rich and insightful. I learned so much from sitting through other people's process. We all share the same core issues in different settings. I felt oneness so intensely during the intensive. The opportunity to get connected to my core essence, true beauty, my own power, and being in touch with my inner child was so powerful and potent. What's great thing about Inner Bonding is I can get in touch with them anywhere, anytime!! We formed such a special family. I know I can count on other participants for their availability to share and support." Santa Fe, NM Intensive, 4/05

Yuko Hashimoto

"I've done a lot of work on me in the last 8 months. But for the first time I really get the process. I'm very thankful that I had the courage to come, because I really believe my life will change from the process of Inner Bonding. You made the process feel easy and real. Thank you.from Tonya Gachett and the little 12 year old girl in me." Santa Fe, NM Intensive, 4/05

Tonya Renee Gachett,Loan Consultant

"After having read two of Margaret's books and worked half way through her "Healing your Aloneness Workbook", I got stuck. I was so desperate that I eventually decided to travel half way around the world out of Germany to attend a 5 days Intensive. But then I experienced the very best of all the previous 44 years of my life. I found the key to healing which I had been searching for such a long time! I would like to encourage all persons in Germany who have considered attending an Intensive to do so, though I consider English knowledge at conversational level necessary." L.A. Intensive, 2/05

"I knew self-love was my core issue. For the last 30 years I have been searching the psychological and spiritual scene for the tools. The progress has been slow. The Inner Bonding Intensive helped me make a great leap and has given me tools I need to make rapid progress. For the first time in my life I feel at home with myself. Inner Bonding is a profound healing modality." L.A. Intensive, 2/05

James Molloy,Field Service Engineer
Escazu, Costa Rica

The Inner Bonding Intensive and Dr. Margaret Paul's wisdom, attention, and love brought out things that would have taken years to uncover in traditional therapy. I am more present, in the intention to learn, and have forged a stronger connection to my higher guidance - all in 5 days! I now more readily acknowledge the many deeply painful feelings that I formerly ignored. I also recognize the varied addictive behaviors I employ to avoid those uncomfortable feelings. Ive uncovered a slew of false beliefs that were causing me grief. Importantly, I've learned that I need to acknowledge my essence (innate talents and gifts) and to insure that I make time for the things I love in my busy life. Best of all, I now have the tools to heal and comfort myself and I own the fact that only I must learn to give myself the attention, approval, acknowledgment, and love that I need. Besides all that....the other participants were kind, supportive, and loving, the retreat compound was breathtakingly beautiful, and the food was delicious, healthy, and plentiful! Hiking in the desert hills, soaking in a hot tub with a view of the mountains, viewing a full sky of constellations (for the first time in many years) were also a special part of my Inner Bonding Intensive journey in Lucerne, CA. I highly recommend the Intensive to anyone seeking a deeper sense of self love and appreciation along with a solid connection to one's spiritual guidance. I will never forget this experience! L.A. Intensive, 2/05

"What a gift I received. Margaret's wisdom and compassion offered each of us a safe haven to explore our inner depths, to embrace the feelings which had held us hostage for so long, and to open to a new path of light - to reconnect with our own TRUE essence. What a journey I had, what wonderful tools I left with, what wonderful people I've connected to. Attending and participating in this intensive for me was like taking an express train from: fear to strength; ignorance to wisdom; lethargy to action; darkness to light; passenger to engineer." L.A. Intensive, 2/05

Pat Heubner,Retail Management
Long Island,New York

"No other experience has gotten me closer to healing my core shame and realizing the manipulative power of my wounded self. As an MFT intern on track to be a licensed therapist, I highly recommend Inner Bonding, particularly the Intensive to anyone involved in the counseling profession. Inner Bonding is by far the most profound and effective healing modality I have experienced." L.A. Intensive, 2/05

Jeff Frymer,MFT Intern
Los Angeles,California

"The Intensive is such a safe environment for deep healing to happen - by deep healing I mean to really get that you are not your wounded self. Even if you've practiced Inner Bonding for a long time, there are always more layers of healing to do. And it's a wonderful journey!" L.A. Intensive, 2/05

Nancy Swisher,Inner Bonding Facilitator/Writer

"I had a wonderful time at the Inner Bonding Intensive. This work is deeper than anything else I've done and during the Intensive you really get tools that you can use at home to maintain the connection that you've created." L.A. Intensive, 2/05

Juliette Gelbard

I met Margaret about 24 years ago. I participated in her "Women's Group" in the early '80's and learned from that experience that she was the most gifted, talented, insightful and intuitive teacher I'd ever met. I found her, after all of these years, and went to her 5-day Intensive in Montecito, California last November. She radiated more than I'd remembered and her gifts and nurturing ability have grown a thousand-fold since I'd last seen her. The Intensive changed my life and the way I love myself, my children, my husband and the way I understand friends. Traditional therapy dims in comparison to the learning and growth that is accomplished in an Intensive. The wonderful people who came from all over the world, literally, shared their lives and their hearts. Each day the room was filled with acceptance, understanding, encouragement and growth. I am so grateful to have found Margaret after all of these years. Innerbonding works. 11/04

"It was very powerful, very deep, and I have no doubt it will have lasting transformational effects. I felt safe and supported throughout. I really loved the emphasis on the spiritual - the missing link in so many therapies - and how mind, body and spirit are equally honored. Plus, it was fun! L.A. Intensive, 2/05

"Coming from Spain to this incredible healing experience is worth every inch of this half of the world travel." L.A. Intensive, 2/05
