Daily InspirationSeek not to give authority to others to tell you who you are or what is right or wrong for you. When you open to your spiritual Guidance, you become the world's authority on you! Only your own Guidance knows who you are and what is in your highest good. Today, seek to know yourself and support your highest good through being open to learning with your higher self. By Dr. Margaret Paul
"Probably the most powerful spiritual experience I have ever known in a two-day workshop." Rowe, MA, 4/04
'This workshop was exactly what I have been asking for for the last few months. I learned so much re: How to shift my feelings. I knew my feelings were telling me I was off the mark, & separate from Source. So How to get reconnected is very good news. The 6 steps put it in a concise, clear & doable format.' Rowe, MA Workshop, 4/08

'This was truly a life awakening experience for my sister and I. Being scared but okay to open up was challenging but extremely rewarding. I can't wait to take these tools and apply to my life at home. Margaret was fantastic and I felt her care for each one of us was sincere and true.' Weekend Workshop - Kripalu, Lenox, MA 9.14
"I am a therapist with 25 years of experience, have been in long term therapy in the past, do yoga, shinkiko (energy work), exercise & generally take care of myself, but found the workshop so helpful in fully illuminating my self-abandonment tendencies - I came here with my friend who lost her husband & child - to support her and to learn the technique for my practice, but found it so important for me." Kripalu Workshop, Lenox, MA, 10/09
'This has been an excellent experience into getting in touch with myself and Spiritual Guidance. This is a great tool to use with my clients. I feel refreshed and free. Excellent Workshop. Thank you for helping me heal.' Weekend Workshop - Kripalu - Lenox, MA 9.14
"I wanted to write and again express my appreciation to you for the workshop on Inner Bonding you recently conducted here. All of us involved in putting together the workshop feel that it was a tremendous success. I have heard from several participants that although they had already read your books on the Inner bonding process, having the opportunity to hear you and work with you directly was immensely beneficial."
