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 (now being offered as The Wildly, Madly, Joyously in Love Course through flourishtogether.com) 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 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. (2019's Shift Network course begins on January 31 and goes for 7 weeks.)
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!"

"Incredible - insightful - as if I am taking the workshop for the very first time [this is her second time] - but as a 'different' me. I am grateful for my growth and yet still see how far I have to go. [Margie was] amazing. Open. Honest. Beautiful." Los Angeles, May 2000

"The workshop opened me up to a part of myself I never knew I had. Margaret was absolutely amazing! Professional, compassionate, beautifully open to learning."
"I came into this weekend scared of having to expose myself. I feared expressing my feelings of shame and guilt and embarrassment. I most especially was afraid to cry in front of others. I felt like I'd rather die than to be so vulnerable amongst strangers. But, after having participated this weekend I feel some of that fear has diminished and I now know that it's okay to cry without embarrassment or shame. I feel safe." LA Workshop 9/10/01
'I'm so glad and happy that I took this Workshop, it has helped me so much. I can relate to most of what was covered. I'm now taking the steps to love myself. I always thought that I was going to get it from someone else. I now know that I'm going to get love from myself. Thank you.' Rowe, MA Workshop, 5.12
"The Inner Bonding workshop saved my life. I was just diagnosed as being
bipolar and had been out of work on disability. I now feel I can take care of
myself, love myself and face any challenges I come across by utilizing the Inner
Bonding process." Omega Workshop, 5/04
