Daily InspirationResearch indicates that happy people create happy relationships, not the other way around! If you believe you need a relationship to be happy, or the "right" relationship, you may stay stuck being unhappy. Unhappy people either don't get into relationships, or often create unhappy relationships. Put your energy into making yourself happy and then see what happens! By Dr. Margaret Paul
"This workshop gave me the time and space to attend to myself in a loving way. Being with like-minded people for two days was very helpful in inspiring me to connect to my own guidance. I learned a great deal personally and professionally. I'm very sorry it's over. [Margaret was] excellent. Her calm and centered presence enabled me to do the work I wanted to do." Toronto Workshop, April, 2000
"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

'I came here broken. My Wounded self was running my life and broke all aspects of it. I learned so much on who my Wounded self is. NOT ME. The relationship and conflict info. was Huge for me.' Weekend Workshop - Kripalu - Lenox, MA 9.14
i've had incredible moments of connection and grace of late, as well as synchronicity and oneness and i've felt so incredibly grateful that inner bonding came into my life. I feel like it's the best thing that ever happened to me.
When it came into my life i was looking for something to make me feel 'better', but now I realise that's only the start and the path inner bonding put's you on is way more profound and meaningful than I could ever have possibly imagined. I feel it has completely changed my view of life, the universe and much more besides, and it gets deeper and deeper and deeper. Obviously there are lows still, but i'm trying to welcome them and i feel like I learn and grow each time they come. Working from 'in to out' has such a powerful effect on the world around you, it's really magical.
