    "Though I have degrees in Art Therapy, Psychosynthesis, and Leadership and Human Behavior, and have been nationally recognized as a training consultant and journalist, what contributed most to the person I am today began not in the halls of any university or the board rooms of any corporation, but in the midnight hours of my childhood. It was then that I first began to carry on long, intimate conversations with an unseen but palpable Presence I called "The Magic," a presence that filled me with uncharacteristic bravado about my ability to master my life -- and sometimes, joy."

    Margaret's Book - "In Sweet Company Conversations With Extraordinary Women About Living A Spiritual Life (Jossey Bass), is a compelling collection of intimate conversations with 14 remarkable women, each with a spiritual life that nourishes them and serves as a dependable compass for their decision-making.

    Swami Khecaranatha


    Sacred Space Yoga Sanctuary
    830 Bancroft Way
    Berkeley, CA 94710

    Swami Khecaranatha (born Steven Ott) began practicing Kundalini Yoga under Swami Rudrananda (Rudi) in 1971. Rudi recognized him as a teacher within this lineage in 1972. Khecaranatha lived in an ashram for 30 years, and has traveled to India, Nepal, & Asia, spending extended time in meditation and spiritual practice. At the same time he is very accessible, and understands the pressures of living in the world. He has dedicated his life to spiritual development and to serving others in their spiritual quest.

    Khecaranatha grew up in an international environment. When he was 6 he moved to Tierra Del Fuego, Argentina -- basically the bottom of the earth. He lived there until age 12. He moved directly from South America to North Africa where he lived in Tripoli, Libya until 1970 when he moved back to the U.S.

    Shortly thereafter, Khecaranatha met Swami Rudrananda -- in October of 1971. He moved into the ashram in January of 1972. He lived in the ashram in Indiana, Massachusetts, and most recently in Portland, OR. In June of 2001 he moved to Berkeley to start a spiritual center and to establish his import business -- which is a business path that is seamless with his spiritual focus and commitment.
