even feeling the risk and fear of finding out about myself, I am awakened,
being transformed and my life commitment now is to Being and giving Love. Thank
you." Omega Workshop, 5/04
"Wonderful, incredible. Two major epiphanies; one was that my inner child requested a need for bonding from me, hence I now really get the workshop title "Inner Bonding". Two, was that the cherishing I have been feeling, I've missed all my life from my family, I can give to me. Thank you." Kripalu Workshop - Lenox, MA - 5/2001
"Completely and utterly life-changing. I have been working on this broad idea inside of myself and 'coming home to myself' for awhile, so this is just what I needed in my life at this time. These 6-steps are very powerful and I will now use them to help fully heal myself and really let my Inner Child know she is worth it and that I am making a commitment to take care of her!" Kripalu Workshop, 9.10
'I read the Inner Bonding steps before I came, but now I understand them much better. I can identify my wounded self now and I understand what my core feelings are. I was feeling very lonely and my wounded self was telling me I was unloveable and I would be alone forever. I am learning that I am loveable and I have the ability to make myself happy. I don't need others to bring happiness to me.' Weekend Workshop - Anaheim Hills, CA 3.14
Aloneness is a very painful feeling that results from the disconnection with ourselves and a source of spiritual Guidance. Inner Bonding is a powerful process for healing this disconnection, thus healing aloneness. When we are inwardly and spiritually connected, we can be alone without feeling alone.
NNER BONDING is a process that leads to loving yourself through teaching you how to take 100% responsibility for your own feelings and needs. Self-abandonment is the core issue behind anxiety, depression, anger, addictions, relationship problems, and parenting problems. Self-abandonment leads to feeling like a victim, while Inner Bonding leads to emotional freedom and personal empowerment.
Inner Bonding was created in 1988 by Dr. Margaret Paul and Dr. Erika Chopich. INNER BONDING is a transformational six-step spiritual pathway that creates a powerful connection with your core Self and your Higher Guidance. This connection enables you to access truth and love, giving you the power to take loving action for yourself and with others. INNER BONDING leads to healing core shame, anger and pain, opening the door to the sacred privilege of expressing your love and gifts upon the planet. Through books, lectures, weekend workshops, 5-day intensive individual and couples retreats, groups and individual work, INNER BONDING has helped thousands of people throughout the world heal their aloneness, their relationships, and move into personal power.
The latest book on the Inner Bonding process is Do I Have To Give Up Me To Be Loved By God? The following, from the Introduction to that book, is by Neale Donald Walsch, author of the Conversations With God series.
"Here, in the treasure that you now hold in your hands, is a method for recreating yourself as a powerful, spiritually connected, loving adult self, capable of taking personal responsibility for your own feelings and behaviors. This book offers you a process through which you may do that. It also contains a powerful method for healing relationship and family conflict, as well as for healing self-destructive and addictive behavior. I am very excited about this material. It takes the truths found in Conversations with God and other of the newest wisdom literature, and renders them functional in everyday life. Anything that takes a huge wisdom and turns it into a practical tool is a treasure indeed. It is one thing to behold the wisdom and quite another to be able to use it. Margaret Paul has for over a dozen years been working with, and teaching to others, a process which allow people to do just that. Now everything you could want to know about that process, and the eternal truths which underlie it, has been placed in a book. This book. This marvelous gift that that has come to be placed before your eyes."

From the foreward of Do I Have To Give Up Me To Be Loved By God? " Would you think me crazy if I said there was a single process that could solve all the issues with which we as human beings struggle? Over the years, I begin noticing a common denominator in all these problems and came to the conclusion that there is only one issue: humankind's lack of experience in feeling our Divine self and our innate connection with the Divine. All other issues stem from this. Within the pages of this enlightened yet practical book, we are taught a most loving process [that] will take you on a life-changing journey down a path full of awakenings, tears, compassion, reunion, joy and peace. This path, in reference to our divinity, is one seldom even thought about, much less explored.
-Lindsay Wagner, actress, author, humanitarian
