Daily InspirationOften, when you feel anxious and stressed, it is because you are trying to control something you cannot control. The moment you choose to surrender - to "Let go and let God", you will notice that the anxiety and stress release. By Dr. Margaret Paul
"I arrived, terrified at the prospect of revealing myself in the work process. As the walls came tumbling down with the tears, I was finally able to open to myself and my group. It was such a tremendous release and relief to know that my primary focus is to become a loving person, and to do that I need to (get to) take care of myself. Margaret creates a wonderfully loving safe environment for beautiful healing things to happen." Rowe, MA Workshop, April, 2000
'Margaret's teaching of how to connect with all my key parts has been wonderful. I finish this weekend with a true intention to learn more about myself in an active way and to connect to my Child and Guidance.' Weekend Workshop - Kripalu - Lenox, MA 9.14
'At the Workshop I reconnected to my higher self, and experienced confidence building to do the right thing. It gave me hope that my partner and I can learn the tools we need to have a healthy relationship, first with ourselves and then with each other. I really liked the Visualizations led by Margaret. I would recommend the Workshop because it is very reflective and so empowering to be given permission to take care of yourself.' Los Angeles Weekend Workshop, 3.11
"Inner Bonding was explained clearly and fully. The activities were deeply moving and thought provoking. Excellent ratio of individual and group work." Los Angeles, May 2000
"I have to tell you that my husband and I are not living together and have filed for a legal separation BUT we started doing the relationship course when I received the 12 weeks of the toolbox. We've done the first 3 weeks already and both of us are getting a lot out of it. After several years and more than $10,000 of what I now call "thera-chat", we have finally found something helpful! So thank you for making this material available!"
"I realized how many manipulations and controlling behaviors I used. It was illuminating to acknowledge and love my wounded self - and liberating!
