Margaret has studied the light body through Sanaya Roman and Duane Packer since 1992. She finished teacher requirements in 1997, and upon her return from Belgium to Raleigh in 2001 began formal teaching. She is also an author/editor and a cloud photographer.
Beginning in 1985 at the Jung Institute in Zurich, Margaret had her first initiation and likes to work with people to help them integrate as they receive sudden jolts of awakening into their deeper identity.
She had shaktipat into a Hindu tradition, of Lord Ram, through the sat guru Dhyanyogi-ji, a Kundalini Maha Yoga teacher.
Margaret is interested in indigenous teachings and was an early co-founder of Kayumari, a spiritual community in California, which helped open the door to the Thirteen Indigenous Grandmothers.
In Raleigh, Margaret teaches all possible courses of the Orin/DaBen materials. She also offers her energy-tracking services that “read” your energy by tracking its path and its divergences, obstacles, blocks, and possibilities. She focuses on acceptance and love, a deep sense of reality, humor, diversity, and breakthroughs—cutting out the excuses and detours to get to where the road is open and even sometimes simple.
Academically, she has a BA in history (Honors & Distinction) from Duke and an MA in contemporary Brit and American literature from Columbia University. After her time at the Jung Institute, she has studied and experimented in energy and consciousness.
The author of eight books in the Love in Transition: Voyage of Ulysses—Letters to Penelope nonfiction series, including Toward a Philosophy of Perception, Harrell copy edited Hunter Thompson’s first book, Hell’s Angels. HST acknowledged her in Gonzo Letters 2. She is also an editor, cloud photographer, and mentor to people wanting to maximize their potential.
I have been called “complicated” and “ornery,” “angelic” and “intimidating.” Some are opposites, and yet at different times I can identify with them all. My light body teacher in Belgium, Roland Verschaeve, used to say, “Margaret, you don’t have to do anything but show up” (at a workshop). And, another time, “Margaret always wants the best for everyone.” I’ve relished when someone said that in my classes people leave their egos at the door. True indeed. I guess that about sums it up.
