Modern Spirituality

About-Page-GraphicModern Spirituality is a way of living based on timeless spiritual principles, updated to be relevant and meaningful for people living our fast-paced modern lifestyle. Individuals who practice Modern Spirituality learn to live in the "now", free from worry about the future or regrets about the past. They experience increasing joy, satisfaction and fulfillment in their lives.

For those who genuinely desire more meaning and joy in their life and know that it must emerge from the "inside", Synchronicity's Modern Spirituality is a path worth exploring.

Synchronicity Sanctuary

Synchronicity Sanctuary is the headquarters for Synchronicity Foundation for Modern Spirituality, located in the Blue Ridge OctoberStillpointe2011334Mountains of Central Virginia. The 450-acre sylvan retreat includes residential facilities for the Synchronicity Monastic Community at the Stillpointe Monastery and guest facilities for Synchronicity Retreat participants.

Synchronicity Monastic Community members staff the Foundation and collectively share their experience of living a holistic lifestyle with hundreds of visitors every year who come for regular retreats and trainings. Anchored in the practice of Synchronicity High-Tech Meditation, their daily meditation practice -- together with their exterior focus in service to the world at large -- fulfills the Founder's intention of a holistic lifestyle that actualizes the Synchronicity Holistic Model of Reality.

In addition to the monastic community, Synchronicity also hosts a growing secular community residing in the local area surrounding the Sanctuary. Included in this community are professional people from all walks of life who endeavor to make a modern spiritual lifestyle their primary focus and want to live close to the Sanctuary and Master Charles Cannon as a means of actualizing this holistic intention. Among this special group of individuals are a number who have taken on major roles or are involved in significant and ongoing projects within the evolving world of the Sanctuary. Most importantly, the Synchronicity Monastic and Secular Communities work closely together under Master Charles Cannon's empowering guidance to assist in the actualization of his vision of a truly Modern Spirituality.

Prior to meeting Master Charles, I had only read, with envy and amazement, about the mystical experience. Being with Master Charles brought it within my reach.

In the year 2000 I spent a wonderful two weeks at the Synchronicity Sanctuary in Virginia which included a Mastery Program.  The intense meditation experience during the program opened up my awareness to possibilities I never even dreamed of! These experiences have culminated in my present blissful life, living each moment to the full. I am now 70 and I contemplate this life in this moment with joy and deep gratitude.
Thank you Master Charles.
