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

By Dr. Margaret Paul
"I am a therapist with 25 years of experience, have been in long term therapy in the past, do yoga, shinkiko (energy work), exercise & generally take care of myself, but found the workshop so helpful in fully illuminating my self-abandonment tendencies - I came here with my friend who lost her husband & child - to support her and to learn the technique for my practice, but found it so important for me." Kripalu Workshop, Lenox, MA, 10/09
'A total discovery of recovery, healing and hope. It is a belief in the joy of the ability to become you.' Rowe, MA Workshop, 4/08
COMMENTS BY PARTICIPANTS AT INTERFACE IN BOSTON:
"Outstandingly valuable tools for changing one's life in permanent ways. Margaret Paul is a terrific role model."
"This program was excellent. Very helpful and presented in a way that made it safe to handle."
"Margaret Paul's offering is fantastic, grounded, practical. After years of therapy, [this was] the best thing that happened to me."
"I feel a wonderful sense of being taken care of, of being loved and full of joy and it came from within me. Getting in touch with my personal power is awesome."
"A cynic - what is this? Another workshop? The Inner Child - can't be.. and then it was, all my pent up feelings, anger, hostility jumping out at me. And what I learned over two days was to start to listen to my 'gut' feelings. They were there to put me on track but I had discarded these feelings as being silly, not adult-like. What a revelation to me and the start of some work and growth to assimilate the loving Adult and Inner Child."
Toronto Workshop, April, 2000
"This has been very freeing. It reinforced that I only have control over me and my behavior, no one else, and that my inner child is so important to my whole being."
