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

When I pass from this earth, all that will truly be remembered are the intentions of my soul. And the intentions of my soul will leave a first impression on the other side.
By Dr. Erika Chopich
It was wonderful and challenging experience. I have learned that I tend to be controlling, demanding and impatient and these tendencies are not serving my core self. I find that doing this inner bonding practice frightens me because I have become so disconnected from my core self over the years. It’s took a lot of courage to attend the retreat and I’m very proud of myself for coming and committing to the work.- 2019
Amazing course. Helped me to open some deep issues and realize the root of it. Would like to continue practice Inner Bonding and want to attend an Intensive Course. Dr. Paul connected with each one of us and shared many personal experiences that was helpful. Thank you for all the knowledge. Loved that you have shared many personal experiences from your life.
Very practical guide for a path to healing and be coming your whole self. Dr. Paul show how this practice can easily be integrated into everyday life. -2019
"It gave me more insight on how to move within myself and remove 'blockages' that hinder me from growing to a full loving adult. Margaret is extremely knowledgeable and able to get that knowledge to us." Kripalu, July, 1999
"This workshop reminded me to look inside myself for the seed of self-love. Since learning about this process, I've reconsidered all the ways I've abandoned myself and started thinking about how much I need to water that seed, and really nurture it inside myself so that I can show up in relationships in a healthy way.' Kripalu Workshop - Lenox, MA, 9.13
"Good balance of info and experiential process. I got to see and feel what
it's like to deeply nurture my soul, stand up for my soul, and live in spirit.
It's a practice for life, simple and profound. I got a sense of our collective
future - what it's like to live in spirit, connected to higher self. We will
have energy and creativity on the planet! Yea!" Omega Workshop, 5/04
