In The Spotlight: Alicia Anderson

Alicia Anderson

Over a decade ago I learned about Synchronicity at a local yoga studio where I taught and practiced. At that time I was a bit of a spiritual shopper, jumping from Buddhism to Sufism to Native American sweat lodges and yearning to connect with something deeper to fill a void of lack and doubt, due in part to my age and growing up in the South.

There had to be something out there that would make me complete, give me purpose, and I just knew, without a doubt, it was going to be magical, right? I had the itch and fortunately discovered Synchronicity in my early 20’s, when we are naturally more curious and testing our surroundings.

About 6 months after joining the Recognitions program, a group of students from our meditation class attended a 4-day mini retreat at Synchronicity Sanctuary in Virginia. It was strange how the Synchronicity terminology, such as positive and negative polarity for example, began to make sense. I had been listening to our local teacher describe the holistic model of reality, but honestly, it felt like a foreign language to me. Then, after spending a few days at the Sanctuary with Master Charles and his incredibly supportive staff, the layers began to peel back, and an experience, the Synchronicity experience, became very real for me.

I like to call the Sanctuary my Heaven on Earth. The pristine energetic of Master Charles, his staff, and of course the grounds where years and years of meditative lifestyle have taken place, carries a lot of weight. There is a level of peace and bliss not available many places in our modern world. Traveling to the Sanctuary is like reading the book and watching the movie at the same time, and when watching the movie you are actually a character within it. For me the experience was visceral, and undeniably transformational. If that’s not magical, then, I don’t know what is.

I began to share my experience with friends and family and am proud to say that I now have the deepest connection possible to my mother, also a student of Master Charles. I joke when I say that my mother and I endured the equivalent of 40 years of intense therapy in about 4 years. Although we have become closer and closer, in fact, all of my relationships, including the one with myself, deepened.

I had finally found my truth in becoming truthful with my nature, history and experiences, while cultivating love, acceptance, and forgiveness. I have truly gained so much emotional and mental freedom, along with the courage to live the life I want.

Now, in my late thirties, pregnant with my second child, I have less time for a formal meditation practice. Master Charles said that my children would become my practice. The years spent cultivating awareness, under the guidance of Master Charles and staff, have proven invaluable. I can meditate while brushing my teeth, or changing a dirty diaper, and for this, I am eternally grateful.

One Life Alliance News April 2016


Kia was the inspirational speaker at the 2nd Annual Women's Police Conference at the LA World Airport on March 9th where she expressed the following:

“We are blessed to have such dedicated, committed and compassionate women and men serving to keep our communities safe. After spending a whole day with this group, it is clear that the motivating force fueling this commitment is love. They lay their lives on the line every day in these tumultuous times. They deserve our highest appreciation.”

Kia was featured in a project by Matthew Nicolas Hopwood who collects stories of connection and compassion from around the world. “It was a great honor to create this recording with him for his collection called A Human Love Story,” she said.

I first learned about Master Charles and modern meditation from my brother who has been friends with Luis Xavier Quijano (founder of Synchronicity Mexico) since they were kids. At that time I had been practicing Vipassana Meditation for a few years which helped me get through a difficult divorce. During that time I saw an article in the QUIEN Magazine in Mexico, published by Brenda Ignorosa (now one of my dearest friends).

The article was about Gisela Hengel and Luz Maria Zetina, who both referenced Master Charles and Synchronicity. I called Gisela’s office and bought the Time Off CD. I began using it and the difference was amazing. I began to see things with other eyes, and everything was clearer. I also felt more loving and compassionate. Within three weeks I was really surprised when I began to flow more easily.

At that time I was working with a nutritionist, taking wellness programs to corporations, so I checked on the possibility of adding meditation to these events. That is when I began working for Synchronicity Mexico. I love my job, and I think I found my life purpose. Everything… my career, my life, my friends… has changed since I met Master Charles and I feel absolutely grateful to have him in my life.

Eternamente agradecida… Leo

I was always looking for something.  Something seemed to be missing from my life, and I often felt a sadness that came from I didn’t know where.

I read a lot of self-help books and undertook many suggestions for healthy eating and exercise, but still felt lacking.  Someone suggested meditation so I took up Tai Chi, a moving meditation.  I tried sitting meditation many times, but I could never settle for long.

One day at a low point in my life, I walked into a bookshop in the city, looking for a book that might offer me insight into my life’s problems.   As I was browsing the shelves a book literally fell off the shelf into my hand.  It was The Bliss of Freedom by Master Charles.   It looked interesting, so I bought it.

Once home I eagerly started reading.  At the back of the book there was information about meditating while listening to music created by Master Charles.  I decided to give it a go and phoned up and ordered.

Once I listened to those cassette tapes, meditation came easy and I could not stop.

My facilitator encouraged me to come and experience a retreat with Master Charles.  That first night with Master Charles was such an awesome experience, especially receiving his blessing during the greeting.

I walked back to my cabin with newly-made friends and we were laughing together and falling over.  We were drunk on love -- such was the impact of our experience.

After that beginning 18 years, ago I attended every program when Master Charles came to Australia and also many programs at the Sanctuary in Virginia, including serve study for several weeks and the Teacher Certification Training.   Also I was privileged to be with Master Charles in India.

It hasn’t been all blissful, there have been big upheavals at times especially after Mumbai, but always Master Charles’ love and support and guidance was there along the way and, over the years, I moved more and more away from sadness and into love and peace.

My life now is full of happiness and love, and I am forever grateful to have Master Charles in my life.

In Memoriam: Master Joe Slicker

Long time Synchronicity Associate Joe Slicker, known fondly as Master Joe, made his transition on Ash Wednesday, February 10th, 2016 at age 95. Joe was a regular attendee at retreats until recently when his declining health made travel impossible. He was also a dedicated meditator who was in direct mentoring with Master Charles for many years. He will be long remembered for his bright smile and the love he shared with everyone he met. He was indeed masterful. We join his son John in saying, “We grieve and celebrate his amazing and wondrous completed life.”

Participate in The Weekly Sacred Fire Ritual

Julie Cowley

Every Sunday morning at Synchronicity Sanctuary we conduct the Sacred Fire Ritual. This time honored archetypal ritual is dedicated to the Divine Feminine and saturates the entire Sanctuary with a holistic, positive-dominant field.
“I have never encountered any ritual more powerful. It has been preserved in its original form for almost ten thousand years. It originates in the oldest divine revelation and expresses the holistic model of reality in its entirety. The original Sanskrit language has been impeccably maintained and insures its purity. In other words, it manifests its intention.”
          — Master Charles Cannon
Synchronicity Associates who are unable to attend in person can still participate through financial sponsorship, a great opportunity to invest in positive force. When you participate, your name will be chanted and placed into the sacred fire connecting you to the empowerment of the ritual. Some suggested contributions are as follows:
One Week $25
One Month $100
Six Months $550
One Year $1050
