Daily InspirationWhat do you do when your heart hurts from others unloving behavior or from the pain of life? Do you get angry and blame someone? Do you shut down or turn to addictions? Do you ignore your feelings? Instead, hold your pain with compassion and gentleness and give yourself permission to cry, which is the god-given way of releasing pain. By Dr. Margaret Paul
"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

'Wonderful experience, very instructive with a lot of practical role plays and lots of time for question and answer. A good way to deepen your understanding of the process.' Rowe, MA Workshop, 4/08
"As someone who went to a 5-Day Intensive I knew the process very well already, however, there was still plenty of learning and growth that I experienced over the weekend. Different details of the process always come up, and it is always a joy to watch people heal." Kripalu Workshop, Lenox, MA, 2009
"It was just what I needed at exactly the right time. So the universe has delivered what I asked for, the answers to my questions. Outstanding! Impressive! The years of Margaret's own impressive, courageous (I can only imagine) journey shows in all the gems of wisdom and her knowing of where people are in the process." Kripalu Workshop - Lenox, MA - 5/2001
"I LOVED this week-end Workshop. This is the second one I've taken and I still got a tremendous amount of benefit from this experience. I'm so grateful for this work." L.A. Workshop, 12/06
"It was very gentle, yet powerful. I have been doing Inner Bonding for 2 years and I was able to deepen my own understanding of the process. I loved the supportive environment and enjoyed the openness of the other participants. I was also able to deepen my connection with my child and spirit. Thank you for a wonderful experience!!!" Toronto Workshop - Toronto, Canada - 4/2001
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 Frequency
The Patented SelfQuest® Program
A minimum of 12 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
Attendance at two Inner Bonding intensives (these must be completed in-person)
Regular participation on the Inner Bonding Website (which requires membership in Inner Bonding Village)
A self-guided study program which includes two Inner Bonding books, plus three Inner Bonding CDs or courses (of your choice)
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."
