Since then, Margo taught Reiki to 300+ students (more than 260 of them to Master level). After she met and later married David W. Sears, who completed his Reiki Teacher degree in 2009, the twosome became a popular Reiki teaching team. He is a contributing author and an editor in this Reiki series.In 2004, with amazing support from colleagues and community who gave popular demand, Margo also founded a professional association for all types of energy workers and lightworkers, named LEWA (Light & Energy Workers Association). Based in North Carolina, Pastor Margo led LEWA to evolve into a national, non-profit, multi-faith spiritual organization with 205+ non-denominational clergy members.

Margo also has 4 other books in-progress—2 kids and 2 adult:

  • kids’ novel of the adventures a Tibetan monk who finds 11 dragon eggs which hatch
  • a short book of the adventures of cute, magical Christmas spider
  • quasi-biographical, a novice time traveler bent on discreetly taking an uncorrupted DNA sample from her doppelganger great-grandmother in historic Philadelphia.
  • the biography of her deceased sister who spoke 5 languages, was accepted to Harvard graduate school, earned a Fulbright scholarship, a beautiful model and athlete, a poet, married twice (once secretly to an AWOL east Asian), superglued a quarter to the floor of her kitchen for laughs, lived inside cold-war-era Romania, works as a soda jerk at the US Embassy while secretly working for the government, and took 1 month to die from a strange auto accident, leading to stranger events at her funeral…at age 23.

Privately, Pastor Margo and David own and operate a full time, unique beach wedding and photography business earning 12 industry excellence awards from over 1,500 weddings! Also, Margo’s photography made the covers of four wedding magazines. Additionally, they co-host drum circles, Reiki circles, occasional classes, and other related events locally. And, they share their home with a spoiled, sweet, rescue tuxedo cat who basically runs their home.

She knew inherently that there was a deeper meaning to our life experience than what was felt on the surface.

Michael Smith

Author

As a 40-year-old ex-spiritual seeker, Michael spent the last 20 years of his life exploring the meaning, value, and purpose of life.

One day, something occurred that cleared all the chatter and fear from his mind.

The peace and connection he was seeking, became him.

His world, thoughts, past, and future all became one, and he was at peace and at home with himself and everything.

He suddenly realized that he had been “a drop of water in the ocean, looking for water.

This incredible feeling of connection with life was so strong that he was compelled to put it in words as a teaching to others in the form of poems and prose.
