Daily InspirationToday, notice which part of you is in charge - your programmed mind or your higher mind. When your programmed mind - your wounded self - is in charge, you will likely feel stressed. When your higher mind - your loving Adult connected with your Guidance - is in charge, you will likely feel peace and joy. By Dr. Margaret Paul
"I walked in after learning about IB on Kripalu's website just two weeks before. I am in the second year of the end of my marriage which has involved much conflict on both sides emanating from the wounded self. I now clearly see this and look forward to practicing IB as a way to improve the relationship as we co-parent our 6 year old." Kripalu, 9.17
"I have learned that I don't have to protect myself. I can feel the pain and work through it. I see a great change in my heart and in my body (load lifted off me). I realize there is work, but the hope is greater than the work." Los Angeles Weekend Workshop, 7/04
"I came into this experience as a whim and fully ready to back out. I've been in a dark, self defeating place for a long time and didn't want to get out of it. I cried the entire way up and snuck wine and cigarettes into my room in fear I wouldn't be able to deal. After day one, I felt an immediate change - a RELEASE. This has been a life changing experience and I look forward to learning more about Inner Bonding and helping my wounded self to become a loving adult." Kripalu, 9.17

'This workshop was transformative for me. It gave me insight into how my wounded self is operating in my life. Best of all, I learned tools to help me heal my wounded self and to finally begin to love myself.' Kripalu Workshop, 9.15 - Lenox, MA
"It is the first workshop where time flies! I learned a lot about myself and I am embracing a new road in life. I enjoyed learning this simple yet challenging process. I will make it part of my daily routine."
About Alanis Morissette
Alanis Morissette attended an Inner Bonding Weekend Workshop in 2004, and now uses Inner Bonding as part of her personal and spiritual journey.
"Inner bonding has taught and supported me in redefining god as a wise and gentle presence, as opposed to the taskmaster I once perceived god to be. In having begun to practice inner bonding consistently, I am developing new paternal and maternal voices within, and tending to both the false thoughts of my wounds and the dreams and desires of my deepest self. It has supported me in continuing to seek my answers from that wise place within, rather than outside of myself. It has helped me to evolve in my courage to love in the moments where it's the hardest thing to do.
I am grateful for this tool that encourages me to tune in and find the most loving steps to take on my own soul's behalf. This process is of great nurturance to my artist, who I see as being synonymous with my inner child. I am very grateful to Margaret and Erika for channeling this information, and sharing it so generously."
"Led with compassion, wisdom, clarity and safety - Margaret supported my redefining my version of God, unveiling the many false beliefs that fuel my unrest, and my consistently tuning in to what my inner girl's needs and desires are. Such freedom in this high level of responsibility taking!!"
L.A. Weekend Workshop, 11/04
"Amazing - never had such a group participation without the heirarchy playing out. Never had a room filled with such responsibility taking and safety. Such wisdom in the room providing a space that was safe to unravel, express, be vulnerable & ugly & powerful & soft & terrorized & godlike. The best microcosmic experience of what the macro of a perfect world would look like." Santa Fe Intensive, 8/05
