The Inner Bonding 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 higher spiritual guidance
- 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, Margaret Dean Godhard, Mom, Educator, Gainesville, GA

Are you always busy? Do you have a busyness addiction? Is being busy a way you avoid feelings of loneliness, fear, aloneness, heartbreak, grief or helplessness over others and outcomes? Today, stop the busyness and feel what is happening within. Compassionately embrace whatever painful feelings you discover, then explore them or release them to Spirit.

'This workshop has given me a safe place to look into myself to find my own internal resources as well as the connection with my spiritual Guidance. I found the demonstrations to be most genuine and helpful in the learning process.' Los Angeles Workshop, 1/09
I am thankful for attending the workshop. I have taken the 30-day online love yourself workshop and read a couple of books but to be have interacting with some others and with Dr. Margaret it’s been very beneficial. I am excited to leave here and continue the Inner Bonding practice. I think that Dr. Paul has done a great job explaining the steps and helping other understand their issues.-2019
My experience has been eye opening. I’ve learned a lot about myself during this process. I’ve also learned about my parents, partner and past traumas. I feel I have the information now to be able to deal with my anxiety and relationship issues in a healthy way now. Margaret, has a beautiful soul! I appreciate Margaret sharing her history, wisdom and insight on life. Thank you for creating Inner Bonding for all of us.
'I have tried many healing methods and spiritual paths, and nothing has ever given me so much personal empowerment to heal myself and be responsible for myself. The process is inspired yet concrete and totally applicable in everyday life.' LA Workshop, 3.7.10
