A few of Margaret’s Inspirational Places

Meher Center, Myrtle Beach, South Carolina

The Meher Spiritual Center, located in North Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. Margaret recently visited and performed at the Center, which is especially beautiful in the springtime. Founded in the 1940’s at Meher Baba’s request, Meher Spiritual Center is a retreat for “rest, meditation, and the renewal of the spiritual life.” The approximate five hundred acres that comprise Meher Center is home to hundreds of species of birds and other animals. The property also includes two lakes and a beach on the Atlantic Ocean. The many boat rides on long lake, walks through the many wooded trails, swims in the ocean and quiet peaceful times spent in reflection have been inspirational to Margaret’s music. Definitely one of Margaret’s favorite places to visit since she was a teenager, the Meher Center is also the home to the annual Youth Sahavas (weeklong retreat for teenagers), which Margaret founded in 1991.

Samuel P. Taylor State Park, Lagunitas, California

Located in West Marin County, California, approximately one hour north of San Francisco, Samuel P. Taylor Park contains trails of rolling hills and redwood forests. It is inspiration of Margaret’s instrumental composition “Living in Lagunitas” from her “On the Threshold of Change” album.

Edmund Niles Huyck Preserve, Rensselaerville, New York. Located in the Helderberg Mountains in upstate New York, this special preserve includes a lake (Lake Myosotis), a pond, and a waterfall as well as miles of wooded trails. The Huyck Preserve has been a major source of inspiration to Margaret for the last seventeen years.
