Kia OLA October 2014

Last month Kia was honored in India as the recipient of the Forgiveness Peacekeeper Award from The World Peacekeepers Movement (TWPM) at their Grand Peace Awards Ceremony. Tushar Gandhi, great-grandson of Mahatma Gandhi, and Dr. Huzaifa Khorakiwala, Founder of TWPM, are seen here with Kia.

TWPM has a goal of spreading world peace by creating a World Peace Army that would be the biggest army in the world--larger than the People’s Liberation Army of China. They recently reached the milestone of one million Peacekeepers, making it the 6th largest army in the world (bigger than the UN peacekeeping force).Five hundred students from colleges in Mumbai formed a human chain in the form of the Peace Symbol to help commemorate this achievement, andparticipated in the Peace Walk chanting slogans and displaying messages on Peace values.

The movement is based on the premisethat world peace can only be built on the foundation of inner peace, which can be enriched and enhanced through the 7 Peace Values – Gratitude, Forgiveness, Love, Humility, Giving, Patience and Truth.

Invitation for Sponsorship

Autumn 2014 Stillpointe

The Autumn 2014 Sacred Fire Ritual …Invitation for Sponsorship

An integral part of each Stillpointe Retreat is the Sacred Fire Ritual that is celebrated for a full six days. Dedicated to the Divine Feminine, the holistic power of the archetypal ritual progressively increases throughout the week and saturates the entire Sanctuary with a positive-dominant field.

This positive-dominant holistic field is not limited to those who are physically present.  It is also amplified in those who create the intention to participate through financial sponsorship of this time-honored archetypal ritual. The intention creates a connection that is experienced no matter where you are on the planet.

Because sponsorship of the Sacred Fire Ritual is such a blessing, we offer you this opportunity to participate. The names of those choosing to be sponsors will be included in the ritual and offered into the sacred fire. 

Sponsorship categories are:

1.    Bronze      $100
2.    Silver        $250
3.    Gold          $500

However, we welcome any contribution!  And you can join the sponsorship anytime through October 25th.  To sponsor the Autumn 2014 Stillpointe Retreat Sacred Fire Ritual,contact us at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. .

In the Spotlight: Dr. David Downey

David Downey

I first met Master Charles Cannon in 1991 and was enthralled by his dialogue, the wonderful music and the stillness of meditation. I have participated in the Recognitions program for the last 23 years and attend as many retreats and programs at Synchronicity Sanctuary as I can manifest.

My journey has been an on-going balance between the interior and exterior of my experience, and my resulting wakefulness and holistic state of being have been a welcome part of my life with family members and daily contacts.

I continue to practice as a physician in Auckland, New Zealand and wholeheartedly endorse the interior journey under the tutelage of an aware master spiritual teacher such as Master Charles.

A Day of Remembrance

Master Charles’ mother, Angela, made her transition on August 5th of this year. The Synchronicity Community participated in a Day of Remembrance and celebration of her life on August 30th, which was her birthday.  A funeral yagna (sacred fire ritual) was performed in her honor and dedicated to the Blessed Mother with whom she had a life-long personal relationship. Thereafter her ashes were interred in the Grotto.

Later that day, Master Charles conducted a memorial service followed by a reception at the Fellowship Hall lounge.

Master Charles wishes to convey his gratitude for everyone’s condolences and gifts to the Blessed Mother Temple Building Fund in honor of his mother.  He and his family are deeply appreciative.
