Support groups are periodic meetings where you can get individual help with your Inner Bonding process. Some support groups are in person and others are on the telephone. Dr. Margaret offers a 6-week telephone support group. To join Dr. Margaret's telephone support group, call 888-646-6372.
Every relationship in our lives offers us a gift of growth. Think about your most difficult relationships - family, friends, co-workers. Today, pick one to focus on. How is this person a mirror for you? How do you not take care of yourself around this person? What do you want from this person that you are not giving to yourself?

Probably the best gift I ever gave myself!!! I felt emotional shifts and a sense of peace and freedom on issues I have struggled with all my life.
The changes since the Inner Bonding intensive are fundamental. I'm enjoying the best relationship ever with my spiritual Teacher. The days of working hard to heal my wounds are over. There is an ease to the healing and living process now that is exquisite. As a result of this wonderful inner relationship, my outer relationship is changing. Everything I have dreamed of is becoming a reality just because I'm in love with myself. I feel deeply loved a lot of the time.
"I gained a great sense of clarity from the Inner Bonding workshop. I was struggling with questions that therapy just couldn't answer for me. Through the help of the group experience and Margaret's great gift of being able to pinpoint the exact issues, I gained a great awareness of what was going on in my life and my relationships. Also, I learned the Inner Bonding process which has given me the tools to deal with my issues, connect with my Inner Guidance(God), and know and love myself better. I have learned that I am responsible for my own love and happiness and how to best give that to myself by connecting with my Inner Child and God. Thank you to Margaret and the group!!!"

'Margaret's compassionate and non-judgmental presence provides the ideal model for how we can learn to be with our Selves in Inner Bonding: to be present with our fears, our false beliefs, our immature efforts to cope with pain & wounding that turn into maladaptive patterns. All find a safe container for healing in the Inner Bonding process. Thank you.' Colorado Intensive 4.14

"Witnessing the process is sometimes just as powerful as being in it. I experienced this increasingly strong after I had lost my fear of taking care of myself while being with others. I found that compassion was growing in everyone, the more pain and fear we were able to access and heal. When said with compassion, there were always beautiful contributions to someone else's work. Access and heal, there are two keywords for me. To me, this is the most accessible and healing work I have ever done. A lot of psychological processes focus on analyzing and understanding, but there was always a missing link. It is only through the intent to love and learn that it makes sense to go with the pain of a deep emotional understanding. It is also the first time that stepping back into normal life has not been difficult. Inner Bonding is everywhere around us and can be done at any time of the day. Sometimes it's a piece of cake and sometimes it takes time and energy when painful issues come up. Feeling my own resistance making place for the real feeling underneath is a glorious moment when pain and joy come together. I will be back soon with the next bundle of experiences!"
[Of most value was] "the intense work with Margaret and Charlie - the guided exploration with other participants, i.e., sometimes 2 people worked at the same time if they had a common issue. this approach is unique in its ability to help participants achieve inner clarity and truth which ultimately leads to serenity. Thank you so much."
