"The Inner Bonding Intensive is a life-changing experience in which participants learn what it truly means to care for ones self, as well as how to recognize when one is not caring for himself or herself. It's packed with information, process and practice, and you leave with a deep understanding of what it means to truly love yourself now and in the future." Intensive, Lucerne Valley, CA, 7/05

"Be prepared at the Inner Bonding Intensive to shift your energy and raise your frequency. I not only forged a stronger recognition of my Essence, but also forged a stronger connection to Spirit and my Guidance. This was a priceless experience and was invaluable to my healing and growth." NY Advanced Intensive, 5/05

J.W.,Design Business Owner

"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

Michelle Lipton,Lawyer

"The Intensive workshop was by far the most useful tool I have ever been taught to deal with my feelings and emotions. 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

Sandy Hersman,Equine Physical Therapy

"A part of me has been lost for a very long time. Inner Bonding showed me the way to find my true self. Words cannot explain what happens during a Five-Day Intensive. Just do it!" Santa Fe, NM, 4/05

Andre Saint-Jacques,Restaurateur

"Always helpful, consistently supportive of transition. With each Intensive that I experience I become more aware of my thoughts that interfere with my own fulfillment. Margaret is a true mirror of truth and her honesty has been a true gift in my life."

Enid Kessler,Minister

"Each Intensive I do unpeels more layers and takes me deeper inside. I am so grateful to Margaret and the other participants who help to unfold this process, and I come away from this Intensive with great appreciation for my commitment to Inner Bonding and to my wholeness. Many thanks for another wonderful loving experience." NY Advanced Intensive, 5/05

Merry Oislander,Teacher

"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

"This helped me to understand the principles of Inner Bonding in a very powerful, experiential way. I feel that this is the most concrete, accessible process that I have found to date to connect with both myself and my Spiritual Guidance, and I highly recommend the Intensive to anyone seeking their growth and their joy." Santa Fe, NM Intensive, 4/05

Dr. Ilene Krems,Psychotherapist

"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

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

Pedro Alvarez,Graphic Designer

"I came to the Intensive with no sense of how to get to my inner voice. That my child was wounded was apparent in everyday life - interactions with my wife, family, friends, all were reflecting a desire to have my little boy taken care of - and of my desire to take care of everyone else. But nothing of me. After the Intensive I finally have access to the tools. I've found my voice and I intend to keep my child safe and secure." L.A. Intensive, 2/05

"I believe the experience of the Intensive was life altering. For the first time, after many years of searching through countless therapies, I have discovered the gift of giving up control. Through Inner Bonding I will focus on being a loving adult to my wounded inner child. I'll let my higher self guide me and I will not hand her to others to fill me." Santa Barbara Intensive, 11/04

Marcy Bloomstein,Real Estate Broker

"It was my third Intensive and a fabulous experience again. Each group is different & the energy of this group was great, Margaret told me that it was because I was at a very different place compared to my first intensive - And it feels great, happy & true. I will encourage everybody to come to the Intensive, I've met wonderful people who I hope I'll see again." Santa Barbara Intensive, 11/04

Kashia Coulouvrat,Physician

"Came desperate, left happy." Santa Barbara Intensive, 11/04

Monte D. Umphress,Letter Carrier
El Cajon,California

The Intensive showed me that the love I was longing to find was always abundantly available inside myself as soon as I opened to the Inner Bonding process. When I align my Inner Child with my Compassionate Adult and listen to my Spirit Guide then my mind becomes clear and my heart overflows with an abundance of loving Energy - Thanks, Margaret" Santa Barbara Intensive, 11/04

"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

Lalia Baisley,Jeweler

"Before Inner Bonding came into my life I was a loner and an atheist. Since it has, I'm still a loner. But now a happy loner because I experience the continuing joy of internal connection among spirit guidance, loving adult and inner child. The solidity and reliability of this most fruitful relationship depends, however, on meeting the challenge day by day, hour by hour, of making sure that the decision maker, the loving adult is indeed fully loving. Happily, this challenge becomes easier and easier to address as the days go by - Life in joy can become habitual." Santa Fe Intensive, 10/04

"This 3-Day Intensive was awesomely powerful. I identified with each and every person's work.

Advanced Intensive, Amherst, MA, 10/04

Enid Kessler,Interfaith Minister

"This was a phenomenal experience! I really got things in a much deeper level - integrated them.

Advanced Intensive, Amherst, MA, 10/04

Susan Settle,Inner Bonding Facilitator

Dianna Hazelton,Mother, Artist

"In three days, I've identified deeper levels of ways I control and what I need to do to release my false beliefs to Spirit. From Day One, our group was a connected and supportive team. Everybody came open and wanting to learn how to be more loving, and left in a more compassionate place for themselves." Advanced Intensive, Amherst, MA, 10/04

Michael Barmak,Inner Bonding Facilitator

"Phenomenal life changing experience. Margaret Paul is a woman with deep integrity and spiritual connection. There is no other spiritual healing process like it on the planet.
