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

We all wish we could control the outcome of things, and we spend much energy trying to do so. Today, be present in the moment, let go of the future and the illusion of control. Accept that Spirit is in charge of outcomes - and that Spirit always supports your highest good!

"The experience is one of the most profound I have ever experienced. As the program developed it became more and more clear that not only
did this make sense, but that it is the way to become a fully 'functioning' loving Adult." Rowe, MA, 4/04
"Before I came to Kripalu to take the Inner Bonding Workshop I had a large feeling of Aloneness. The workshop has allowed me to understand my Self abandonment, and how to work on loving my own inner child. After one weekend of Inner Bonding I feel wonderful and the experience is unlike anything I have ever experienced." Kripalu Workshop, Lenox, MA, 10/09
'The Inner Bonding workshop has taught me ways to deal with my feelings like no other program, book or therapist. I am amazed at what the workshop had to offer and will continue to offer as I learn to apply the six steps of Inner Bonding. I know that stumbling upon the Inner Bonding website was a sign from my higher guidance, and taking advantage of this Loving action was truly one of the best actions I could have taken. I would highly recommend this workshop to anyone who has the desire of becoming a more loving person. I can't wait to attend an Intensive workshop!' Southern California Weekend Workshop, 4.13
"I recognize that loving myself as a Loving Parent is my most important act of love. It is the key to who I am in all my external relationships. As I love myself unconditionally I really do make the difference in the world as I so desire to be/do. I fully commit to creating my greatest love story with me. I turn loving compassion inwardly now." L.A. Weekend Workshop, 11/04
“Many new concepts learned and understood. Experiential process practiced in course and now I have personal motivation to continue course steps of Inner Bonding. Inner Bonding leads to goals for self-love, life goals and shared vision of a better life.”-2020
