About Inner Bonding
What is Inner Bonding®?
INNER BONDING a 6-step spiritually based therapeutic modality that heals shame, and the resulting self-abandonment, that is often the root cause of anxiety, stress, depression, low self-worth, addictions and relationship problems. INNER BONDING creates profound connections with Self, Spirit, and others that heals emptiness and aloneness, unleashing creativity, imagination, passion and purpose, love and joy!
The practice of INNER BONDING is about learning to love yourself and share your love with others.
INNER BONDING transforms your life, creating emotional freedom, by teaching you to:
- Recognize your true worth
- Discover your passion and purpose in life
- Take loving care of your heart, mind, body, and spirit
- Take responsibility for your own feelings of pain and joy, safety and worth
- Create deeply satisfying and enduring love relationships
INNER BONDING is a deep self-healing process that works, regardless of your spiritual or religious background or how severely you might have been abused, neglected, or indulged as a child.
INNER BONDING is a simple yet sophisticated system that:
- Teaches you how to establish a deep daily personal connection and dialogue with a loving source of spiritual guidance.
- Frees your essence -- your core Self, the light within -- and fills your heart with love.
- Heals the false beliefs of your wounded self, beliefs that are the source of the fear, pain, and relationship problems in your life.
- Develops a powerful adult self who can take loving action for yourself and with others.
Traditional psychology has centered on becoming aware of and healing our difficult and painful feelings and behavior. Spirituality has stressed connection with God. Neither has helped individuals to develop a personally responsible loving adult self, capable of healing the pain of the past, bringing joy in the present, and connecting with your spiritual Guidance.
INNER BONDING offers a complete self-healing process that has not been offered by either psychology or religion. People are recognizing that life is empty without the spiritual dimension, but religion has not always provided that.
INNER BONDING differentiates between love intended to get and love intended to give, between power over others and power within self. It provides a much-needed process for moving out of fear and into love, out of the need to control and into trust, so you can weather the storms of everyday life and embrace the sacred privilege of life on this planet.
Daily InspirationNotice if your focus is on caretaking others, or taking care of yourself. Does your compassion go first to others, or first to your own feelings, your own Inner Child? Only when you have compassion for yourself first will you be able to take loving care of yourself and then extend your love and compassion to others. Compassion for others without caring for yourself may be manipulative - giving to get others to take care of you. By Dr. Margaret Paul

"Thank you! A wonderful taste of reconnecting with myself - a loving, gentle
weekend with some real tools to bring home." Rowe, MA, 4/04
"I had an enlightening experience in this workshop and a wonderful connection with my Inner Child. I realized I have mostly been sharing my truth from a wounded child and my loving Adult needs to be there first for my Child before I try to get this from others. I am committed to continuing learning Inner Bonding" Toronto Workshop, April, 2000

'I wasn't sure what to expect upon entering the workshop - my eyes were definitely opened to how I have developed a pattern of ignoring my inner self and looking to others to fulfill my needs. I have come away with a sense of empowerment and hope that I haven't ever felt before. Thank you!' Kripalu Workshop-Lenox, MA, 9.13
"I wanted to let you know that Inner Bonding has made an incredible difference in my life. Your books (Inner Bonding and Healing Your Aloneness) have led to transformation in me. As a result of the personal growth I have experienced, I have been amazed to find that every one of my relationships (work, parent, child, romantic) has undergone a transformation as well. I have found that as I have healed me, these hurts have healed in my relationships.
"I have spent the last 20 years searching for a way to heal my life. I have read (literally) dozens of books, done affirmations, tried therapy and worked endlessly to grow past my childhood. It was not until I connected with my own child inside and became a loving adult that I received the benefits of all of the other work I had done on myself. It has been like an avalanche of joy and abundance broken loose by the Inner Bonding process. This level of sheer pleasure in being alive every day - the gratitude that is my every breath was not possible without your help."
"What I most learned from this course was to be a loving adult. I have been reading your books for the last three years and I knew how to identify my inner child, and have been practicing dialogue occasionally. But I really didn't know how to grow my loving adult and connecting to the Spirit. There were so many questions during this process, but you answered every single question. With your guidance and support, now I am able to do the inner dialogue most of the time of the day (I can't say every single moment!), but I can sense that when my wounded self is in charge, so I can let the wounded feelings go and learn where it was coming from. My daily life has been so peaceful.
"I am single and being alone now but I am sure that if I started dating again, I will face all the difficulties in life. But I am pretty confident that I can handle them much better than before. I found myself becoming a risk-taker a little bit. I no longer blame myself or giving myself harsh words with self-judgment. Life became a little easier for me. This is great feeling. I am so happy to be able to take this course." 7.15
