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, 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

Daily InspirationToday, seek Spirit through connection with others. It is easy to know God when sharing love with others. Open your heart to the sharing of love, and seek out those with open hearts. You will most deeply experience God not in the getting of love, but in the sharing of love. By Dr. Margaret

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

I found it very helpful to be here with a close friend, and even more helpful to know we will continue to dialog about our experiences here. The people that I met here also helped to enhance the process! [Margaret was] exceptional. Very knowledgable, open, and safe. A very good listener." Rowe, MA Workshop, April 2000
