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 cannot get to know each other just through talking. We get to know each other deeply through being - laughing, crying, playing, loving, conflict, learning. Words are easy - anyone can say anything about themselves, but we cannot hide our intent in our real interactions. We cannot know someone's heart through words alone.
By Dr. Margaret Paul
"This workshop was profoundly enlightening, beyond merely understanding myself, into direct contact and experience of Self and Spirit. I had been out of touch for so long - my [inner] child feels so desperate to love and be loved - this workshop brought me deeper into the truth. [Margaret was] A-one, tops, the best! Totally present, open, giving, loving. Thank you." Rowe, MA Workshop, April, 2000
"This workshop has been magical and synchronous. I made connections with people which was exactly what my loving adult needed to do for my inner child. I also stepped in to vulnerbility and out of the wounded self by getting up and speaking in to a microphone sharing my experience. You are both (all three) amazing and I am forever grateful for this precious oppurtunity." 1440 Multiversity Workshop, Santa Cruz, CA 4.18
'I've been a member of Inner Bonding for two years & have always been intrigued. I finally came to the weekend session and it was more than I ever expected. Everyone should take this course. It is never too late to find peace, happiness & serenity.' LA Workshop, 3.7.10
"Absolutely wonderful experience! This has empowered me to be completely responsible for my own peace, happiness and joy. It is so freeing to know that it's okay to take care of myself w/out feeling selfish or unkind." LA Workshop, 7/05

"Very positive. My first workshop of any kind; really, the first time I've truly looked into myself. I've suffered from depression and addictions since I was in my early teens, reaching a crescendo of late. Lest I lose my family, I need to do this. So far, so good. I really enjoyed it, even though painful." Rowe Weekend Workshop, 5/06
'Margaret is an amazing facilitator. She is so intuitive and real. I did not know what to expect and was very edgy about the weekend, but found the experience very safe and truthful. While I know I have a long way to go before I grasp the process, it is good to have made a start, and I look forward to continuing the journey.' Inner Bonding Weekend Workshop, Rowe, MA, 4/10
