Daily InspirationIt is easy for most of us to judge ourselves, and challenging to be in compassion for ourselves. Yet it is compassion that motivates and heals. Today, focus on having compassion for the wounded judgmental part of you, and for all of your feelings. We learn and grow with compassion, and we shut down and get stuck with judgment. By Dr. Margaret Paul
"[The workshop] really opened my eyes and my heart to compassion...around my addiction to shame. Helped me see the need to accept my helplessness over others. Margaret was excellent - outsides match insides - can see the work of the six steps in her life."
'The Workshop is a comprehensive and personalized presentation of Inner Bonding - a thorough, practical approach and technique. I gained confidence in doing the 6 steps and benefited from Margaret's energy and experience. I recommend the Workshop because it is a perfect way to learn Inner Bonding and become more practiced, so as to take home the skills. I loved being around people who want to learn and grow and are on a path of healing. It is like salve for the soul!' Los Angeles Weekend Workshop, 3.11
"This workshop provided me with some very deep insights into what keeps me stuck in my life and how to get unstuck. The piece about connecting core shame with fear of feeling helpless sent ripples that shook me to my toes! Margaret was very skilled as a presenter. She was articulate, present, very responsive to the participants, insightful and loving."
'As a trans guy, I found this workshop provided a safe space to sink deeper into my little boy; and it helped me to acknowledge that I have been blaming and treating my little girl like it was her fault. Once I realized she wasn't the issue, I was able to fully let her go and hear her say good-bye. Thank you for the loving, gentle way you were able to show me the steps to problem solving thru loving action.' Southern California Weekend Workshop, 4.14
"The workshop was an excellent introduction to this new world of spiritual connection. In just one weekend I feel that I was given the primary tools to refocus my energies and reconnect with my essence and spirit."
"The workshop was a wonderful description and reminder of a powerful and
effective healing process for our wounded selves. It's a complete process that
can be done by ourselves as a daily practice as well as being facilitated by
another person." Rowe, MA, 4/04

How I work with my clients:
My goal with my clients is to help them move into a deep sense of self-worth and personal power. I encourage them not to give me authority over them - not to put me up on a pedestal, but instead to learn to trust themselves, to become their own guru. I care deeply about my clients and I always do all I can to support them in supporting their highest good. Because I can see beyond their woundedness into their beautiful soul, I can help them to move beyond their erroneous beliefs about themselves and embrace who they really are as an incredible child of God. I do nothing to encourage their dependency on me. In my view, any therapist that supports dependency isn’t ethical. Instead, I help them to develop their access to their own higher guidance. In my 48 years of working with people, I’ve seen that there is no true healing without a spiritual connection, and traditional psychotherapy doesn’t help clients create this.
I have no agenda for my clients other than what they want for themselves, which enables me to be very patient and non-judgmental with them. This helps them to be patient and non-judgmental with themselves, which is vital for their healing.
I am warm and caring with them, but I don’t get involved with them on a personal level. I’m very transparent with them, often sharing experiences from my own life as a way of helping them feel safe in being vulnerable. Creating inner safety and safety between us is vitally important, but at the same time I’m very confrontative and straight-forward regarding what I see happening with them.
I work primarily by allowing my guidance to come through me and also allowing their guidance to come through me. I often receive a huge amount of information about the client this way, often with holographic pictures of their issues and how to help them.
I work very successfully with individuals, couples, friendships, family relationships and business partnerships
