Daily Inspiration

Anxiety is often a sign that you are not in surrender to spirit. Much anxiety is the result of attachment to control. We get anxious when we desire control over that which we have no control, when we are not in the moment, and when we are not in faith that we are being guided in our highest good. Today, notice your anxiety and see how it relates to control.


'This is my second time completing this workshop and I am so grateful for the experience and opportunity to share with others as I learned about myself.' Kripalu Workshop, 9.15 - Lenox, MA

"It was a wonderful healing process for me. I came with the intention to learn and heal and as a result - I got what I came for."
Rachel McDavid

"I love this workshop.  Before I came here I didn't realize that I had a lot of healing to do for myself.  I never knew how I was supposed to take care of myself.  I thought that making sure everyone was o.k. was the right thing to do.  I never thought it was a part of being controlling." L.A. Workshop, 1/08
Sam Lam

'I came here broken. My Wounded self was running my life and broke all aspects of it.  I learned so much on who my Wounded self is. NOT ME.  The relationship and conflict info. was Huge for me.'  Weekend Workshop - Kripalu - Lenox, MA 9.14

Marybeth McCarthy

'It has been helpful to see the process worked in front of a group, to see others experiences, as well as working in small groups.  Sharing each others experiences, strength & hope.  Margaret defined over & over the differences of the Loving Adult & the Wounded Child & that has been very helpful as I have struggled with this concept.' Kripalu Workshop, 9.12

Melisa Seely

'It felt like such a warm, welcoming and nonjudgmental environment to go through the 6 Step process.  Margaret was so authentic, warm, real and gentle and created a safe space for me to process with my inner child and connect with my heart and God's presence again.  Best place to be!'  Weekend Workshop - Anaheim Hills, CA 3.14

Weekend Workshop

Heal the cycle of shame and self-abandonment that leads to anxiety, depression, addiction, aloneness and relationship failure. Discover how to love yourself rather than reject yourself, and learn to make your best decisions through consistent connection with your personal source of spiritual guidance.

The innovative Inner Bonding process shows you how to:

  • Rapidly heal false beliefs about yourself, others and God
  • Heal guilt, shame, emptiness and aloneness
  • Move beyond self-judgment into self-compassion
  • Address the resistance that may be keeping you stuck
  • Learn how to heal relationship conflicts and attain the intimacy you've always wanted

This powerful and life-changing process is the result of Dr. Margaret's 48 years of personal inner work and work with her clients.

Unless you were raised by parents or caregivers who were loving to themselves, each other and to you, you may not have learned how to lovingly manage your painful feelings. As a result, you may be operating from your ego wounded self, controlled by your fears and false beliefs.

Your wounded self may often take over in unloving ways, trampling on your hurts, ignoring them or avoiding them with various addictions and controlling behavior such as: 

  • Addictions to drugs, food, nicotine, alcohol, relationships, work, TV or video games.
  • Co-dependence - trying to control others with anger, violence, guilt or compliance - making others responsible for your sense of safety and worth.
  • Staying in your head rather than being present in your body
  • Self-judgment, shaming yourself
  • Obsessive thinking, ruminating
  • Resistance to self, others, Spirit - to taking loving care of yourself

These forms of self-abandonment perpetuate fears of rejection, abandonment, aloneness, engulfment or failure, which heal through the practice of Inner Bonding.

Through discussions, exercises and direct work with Dr. Margaret Paul or other Inner Bonding Facilitators, you learn the Six powerful Steps of Inner Bonding.

"Transformational Beyond Words!  My heart and soul and true essence overflow with love and gratitude.  I'm so eager and excited to go home and do Inner Bonding, and share this with my husband and son, and most of all MYSELF at any given moment." Kripalu Workshop, 9/08, Margaret Dean Godhard, Mom, Educator, Gainesville, GA
