Daily Inspiration

Today, 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.

I feel that this workshop was life-changing.  Finally, after years of therapy and reading every book I could get my hands on, I have a tool that I can use on a daily basis that will help me grow to become the person I want to be.  The process and theory behind Inner Bonding just makes complete sense to me.  I feel that I can finally, FINALLY make some progress on the road to being loving and accepting of "myself and creating boundaries that are loving to me while not being controlling to others.  Thank You!! Can't wait to read your books and take a class." Kripalu


Elizabeth Williamson

'So helpful.  I've been out of touch with my feelings all my life.  I don't even know what boundaries are.  This seems as if it were created just for me.  The integration of spirit with deep psychological work is the missing piece in all the other therapies & meditation practices I've done.'    Inner Bonding Weekend Workshop, Rowe, MA, 4/10
Peter Cutler

"It's great to have a method to work through issues.  It's great to know that I can hold myself responsible instead of others because I can change me but not anyone else.  My most precious memory is seeing through visualization my inner child happy & laughing & joyous & filled with life playing naked in the pine tree grove and knowing that she doesn't need anyone else to make her feel so happy & alive!" Kripalu Workshop, 9/08
Joan Gustaff

"Dr Margaret Paul is an absolute pioneer in the world of healing difficult emotions, optimizing your life experience and moving through the world with joy. This workshop was very user friendly. Dr Paul was very hands on, did an excellent job with handling difficult questions and provided very tangible tools to apply the practice in your own daily life. The structure of this class and dynamic she created was a sacred container of trust, safety and transformation. Thank you Dr Paul. I look forward to continuing the learning and healing with you."

Mary Heaven

"I was able to become more connected to myself and learned very helpful tools to start to take care of myself. I have been feeling very lost and abandoned during this past year & now realize that I had abandoned myself (just an observation, not a criticism)! I am very excited about bringing this all into my everyday life along with the Core Energetic training I am doing."
Phyllis Bolgosano

'Very helpful in getting, (beginning), to get in touch with myself.  Seeing how I'm sabotaging my relationships.  Regular therapy hasn't gotten to the core of my problems/issues.  This has.  I'm hopeful things will change for me now.' Kripalu Workshop, 9.10
