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 over 50 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, junk food, nicotine, alcohol, relationships, work, TV or gaming.
- 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, worrying
- Resistance to self, others, Spirit - to taking loving care of yourself
These forms of self-abandonment not only perpetuate fears of rejection, abandonment, aloneness, engulfment or failure, but they can contribute to illness. Inner Bonding is a powerful process for healing self-abandonment and learning to love and value yourself.
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

What can we control? We can control how we treat ourselves and others. We can control our own intent to be loving or unloving, open or closed, learning or protected, surrendered or controlling. What can't we control? We can't control others' feelings, behavior and the outcome of things. Today, notice what you do have control over and what you only have influence only, and how you feel when you try to control that which you can't control.
By Dr. Margaret Paul
"[Of most value was] The combination of conceptual understanding and practice, all in bite-size learning chunks. Inner Bonding is a psycho-spiritual technology that should be in every therapist's toolbox, and deserves a special place in the lives of all pursuing self-development!"
Los Angeles Workshop, Feb. 2000
David Grudermeyer, Ph.D.
"I now have a process for what had been a very haphazard and only partially successful means for understanding myself. Hopefully, this is just a beginning and the six steps will lead to action. Margaret: you are terrific, talented, insightful, with an excellent ability to turn a desperate group of people into an engaged, cohesive unit."
"I have learned a process that I have been looking for for a long time that will help me move from my pain, depression and anxiety into more joy and enjoyment and fulfillment in my life."
"It was just what I needed at exactly the right time. So the universe has delivered what I asked for, the answers to my questions. Outstanding! Impressive! The years of Margaret's own impressive, courageous (I can only imagine) journey shows in all the gems of wisdom and her knowing of where people are in the process." Kripalu Workshop - Lenox, MA - 5/2001
"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
"This workshop was extremely valuable to me. Margaret created a very safe environment to open and heal. I have a new appreciation for my inner child and am committed to healing my relationship with her. Tapping into my spiritual guides excites me and I look forward to learning more about this wisdom as well as trusting the wisdom I receive." Toronto Workshop - Toronto, Canada - 4/2001
