Unconditional love is one of the most enduring (and elusive) goals on any transformational path.
Too often, our attempts to find an overflowing source of love that’s not dependent on outer circumstances are fruitless. We know it’s out there, somewhere, but our search for self-love so often leads to dashed hopes and dead ends.
Spiritual teachers tell you that unconditional love is your birthright and offer platitudes like, “Love is the essence of who you are.” Psychologists assure you that embodying this love is the hallmark of healthy adulthood.
The truth is, it can feel agonizingly difficult to feel unconditional love for yourself, much less express it and live it.
Instead, you may feel trapped in a downward spiral of self-judging thoughts, negative emotions and unending relationship drama, which can make the idea of unconditional love seem like a distant fantasy.
Finding a steady stream of unconditional love can, thus, seem like an impossible goal. Even if you’re a dedicated seeker, you may find yourself struggling with a sense of incompleteness — of not having found the wholeness you desire.
That’s because there’s an aspect of your growth that is rarely, if ever, addressed by the “experts” you turn to for guidance. This is the ability for you to truly love different parts of yourself and create a secure “internal bond” betwe en them.
This lack of secure bonding is a major contributor to challenges ranging from relationship struggles to addiction, anxiety and depression. In its place is often a deep well of self-criticism and self-loathing.
Judging yourself for this self-abandonment only compounds the problem by making you feel more unlovable and exacerbating your sense of unworthiness.
It’s time for a new approach, one that blends spiritual practices like mindfulness with leading-edge psychological science. That approach is Inner Bonding, co-founded by psychologist Margaret Paul.
Inner bonding really nurtures and fosters the relationship between self and spirit. Personally, it has helped every relationship that I have. I’m so grateful to Margaret for bringing inner bonding to people in the generous, nurturing way that she has.

Before co-creating (with Dr. Erika Chopich) the Inner Bonding methodology, Margaret was becoming increasingly frustrated in her private practice by the lack of real progress being made by her clients. After much thought, research and study, she and her colleague designed Inner Bonding to get to the root of this pervasive issue.
Since its inception, Inner Bonding has helped thousands of people and gained renown as a powerful method for fostering the internal self-love that is the hallmark of psychological and spiritual health (and which results in far more satisfying relationships).
During this special event, you’ll learn some of the most important advanced insights and practices in this approach that you can apply to cultivating true and lasting self-love — the best foundation for moving beyond various addictions, dramas and dysfunctions.
One way of understanding Margaret’s method is to consider how psychology has shown that different levels of secure attachment are essential for a developing child. When you don’t have the attachments you need, parts of you feel left out and rejected — the parts of your personality and self that were not seen, embraced or loved by your parental figures.
Instead of viewing this void as a hopeless scenario, Inner Bonding uses a specific, 6-step methodology to establish clear, loving connections between different aspects of your consciousness.
In this special session with Dr. Margaret Paul, you’ll learn how to dialogue with your feelings, pain, anxiety and fear, as well as get to the core of self-abandonment.
You’ll see how you can start connecting to higher guidance around your beliefs and take loving actions that reinforce positive shifts.
In this illuminating and helpful hour-long seminar, you’ll also learn about a powerful 9-month Inner Bonding mentorship that promises to be a long-lasting solution for truly loving yourself... and those around you!
