Interested in becoming a Certified Facilitator of Inner Bonding?
See important details below!
The Inner Bonding® Facilitator Training Program (IBFTP) 2017-2018 Pilot Program is currently in progress and, thanks to a group of wonderful participants, assistants and trainers, it has been a great success so far. That said, we are learning a great deal from our pilot program and are making some important changes to our future program. Please stay tuned to this page for updates regarding the IBFTP, such as program dates and schedule.
One of the most important changes to the Inner Bonding® Facilitator Training Program is the inclusion of additional program prerequisites. We’ve determined that the Facilitator Training Program should be the last step in a person’s journey toward becoming an Inner Bonding® Facilitator, and that each potential participant must fulfill a number of prerequisites in order to be eligible to enter the IBFTP. If you are interested in becoming a facilitator, you can begin your journey now by completing the following program prerequisites:
Inner Bonding® Online Courses: Love Yourself, Loving Relationships and your choice of either the 30-Day Frequency online course or Dr. Margaret Paul’s new book, Diet for Divine Connection
The patented SelfQuest℗® Program. We will provide the 6-month option for SelfQuest membership at a 50% discount ($197 instead of $397) to those who intend to participate in the next IBFTP. This discount will be approved after a qualifying conversation with Stel Fine, Co-Director of the Training.
A minimum of 8 in-person, telephone or Skype sessions with a Certified Inner Bonding® Facilitator
Attendance at an Inner Bonding® workshop
If there is no workshop near you, we will accept your completion of the Inner Bonding® Workshop CDs available on the Inner Bonding® Website or your participation in the virtual Inner Bonding® Workshop offered once a year on The Shift Network
Attendance at a minimum* of one Inner Bonding® Intensive
*The hallmark of Inner Bonding Facilitators is the work they have done on themselves, as well as their facilitation skills. Therefore, applicants to the IBFTP must demonstrate a high level of maturity, self-awareness and ability to apply the steps and concepts of Inner Bonding to their personal growth. It is therefore likely that the majority of applicants will need to attend more than one intensive to arrive at this level. It is up to the discretion of the trainers to determine whether a person is ready to join the program, which may require one, two or more intensives.
A self-guided study program of one Inner Bonding® book (in addition to any of the above) and one Inner Bonding® CD/mp3 lecture or course of your choice (in addition to any of the above)
It is our vision to offer Inner Bonding® Intensives and Facilitator Training Programs in various parts of the world in the near future. If you are currently unable to attend intensives or trainings due to distance, please contact us so that we can add your name to our list for future Inner Bonding® Workshops, Intensives and Training Programs in other parts of the world.

"What I liked most about the training was doing Psychodrama, learning about resistance and going through the steps of Inner Bonding in such creative ways. Karen and her team were led by guidance to give us exactly what we needed."
"All trainers were knowledgeable, experienced, brilliant, vulnerable, competent and modeled much of the spirit of Inner Bonding."
"The training met my needs and more. I came with the intention of getting better connected to my Loving Adult and that has been fully achieved to a much greater impact than I realistically expected."
"I loved the vulnerability and realness of all the trainers. It was what drew me to Inner Bonding and continues to do so."
"The experiential nature of the training helped me assimilate the six steps in a deeper way."
"Far beyond what I could have asked or imagined!"
"Could not have been improved. It was divinely inspired."
"Brilliant, lovely, compassionate, intelligent IB course leaders, trainers and attendees. So perfect."
"I liked the variation of teaching techniques--psychodrama, posters around the room, acting things out, etc."
"Exceeded my expectations."
"Each facilitator was wonderful, supportive, kind, open, available!!!"
"The trainers were all fabulous--open hearted, very in-touch with the group, open to feedback and able to shift as needed."
"I don't know how it could have been better!"
"It was beyond awesome!"

Daily InspirationIs there something you have always wanted to do but have not yet done? Is there something that would be fun, creative, and fulfilling that you keep putting off doing? Take a moment to look inside and discover what your Inner Child might be passionate about that you are not paying attention to, and then notice what is in the way of taking this loving action. Today, begin to take the loving action. By Dr. Margaret Paul
"I felt that the information given to us was extraordinary. It gave us an outline and tangible steps and processes one could do that were unlike anything I had ever encountered before. What was most important, for me, was that unlike other workshops or seminars I had gone to, we were left with very specific ways to continue the process and a host of people (of course, including Margaret) whom we could connect to in the future." Kripalu, Mass. Workshop, 10/06
'This was truly a life awakening experience for my sister and I. Being scared but okay to open up was challenging but extremely rewarding. I can't wait to take these tools and apply to my life at home. Margaret was fantastic and I felt her care for each one of us was sincere and true.' Weekend Workshop - Kripalu, Lenox, MA 9.14
'Inner Bonding gave me an easy format to access my core feelings. Im leaving feeling empowered and confident in my emotional well being.' Weekend Workshop - Anaheim Hills, CA 3.14
"Uncovering the layers of taking personal responsibility has really helped me to open to wanting to & being devoted to doing this. Margaret, thank you for your love, help & unwavering support." Rowe, MA Workshop, 4/08

"It was truly transformative and enlightening. Generous, well-done in terms of not being heavy-handed. The one-on-ones with Margaret & participants was the most powerful and helpful. I've never been a 'group' person but learned so much from others." Kripalu Workshop, Lenox, MA, 10/09

Inner Bonding is the greatest process ever! Margaret Paul is an inspired genius! Does this sound a little too effusive? Well, yes, probably I am biased because I am an Inner Bonding facilitator, but let's put the chicken before the egg here: I trained to become a facilitator after I experienced the huge difference the process made in my life, and as I witnessed the enormous changes in myself and others who used the 6 Steps. I wanted to bring to others what Inner Bonding and Margaret Paul brought to me.
So if you are serious about healing yourself, if you really mean business when it comes to changing your disfunctional behaviors, if you really want a method to engage productively in conflict with others, then jump on the Inner Bonding train. The destination is your own, and the journey is well worth it!
