In the Spotlight: Chris Lober

I began the Recognitions program in 1996, and have been meditating regularly ever since.

My first years were primarily solo, as I could readily see how powerful the Recognitions assisted meditations were but was a bit intimidated by Master Charles. Here was someone who could size me up in a heartbeat, and I was afraid of what he might see. Perhaps his energetic had something to do with this!

I continued through the Recognitions Program, keeping somewhat of a distance, but always active via the e-mail network Synchronicity had at the time. Fast forward to 2006, when the Blessed Mother appeared, and I suddenly had this urge to come to the Sanctuary. I attended a weekend retreat and had this amazing and powerful awakening. Barely able to get off my seat, I exited the meditation hall, and started to figure out how to get back for the next retreat! It was a glorious time, as I was in a state of peace, love, and spiritual exuberance for a steady two years.

Of course, this also brought me closer to Master Charles, as I now recognized him for the Spiritual Master that he is. Steady attendance at retreats, facilitated mentoring and later direct mentoring have all added to my increasing wholeness and I continued to have other powerful mystical experiences and openings, the larger ones always in the presence of Master Charles.

My latest recognition is of the smooth and steady empowerment that Master Charles has given me over the years. There are so many stories of people having awakenings, and then spending years getting back to some semblance of balance. As they say, the mark of the real Master isn’t if he can awaken others, but if he/she is able to guide the disciple’s awakening to its culmination smoothly. Master Charles is an expert in this regard, and my family and I are most grateful that I can maintain a very demanding career and family in the midst of very powerful experiences.

Looking back, it has been an amazing journey. I am ever grateful to Master Charles for teaching and guiding me to ever increasing peace, love, and mastery. I would have never thought it was all inside of me from the very beginning!

Partners in Peace

One Life Alliance is forming an official partnership with the Tata Institute of Social Science (TISS) to create connections and recovery to survivors of disasters and terrorism beginning with survivors from the November, 2008 and July, 2013 terror attacks. A Recovery Team will meet to share survivors’ experiences --where they stand now and how they have healed. Young, old, rich, poor, we are all human and are affected emotionally by traumatic loss. We can rise together to create a new reality for ourselves, and this is the message we share with survivors of all disasters.

Peace OK Please

Kia has teamed up with Mumbai network advertising company, Cutting Edge Promotions, to create a new collaboration that includes the business of peace. The Cutting Edge staff has already completed the 30-Day Peace pledge and is now expanding this focus to the 5,000 salons for which they provide advertising packages. Kia and key staff discussed utilizing social media to create a unique salon community through a central forum on Facebook. They will also use their FB page to include the OLA message of peace as well as distribute “Pocketbook of Peace” in salons as a special promotion tied to salon services.

The launch of this program will be timed with the Mumbai police project that has been named “Peace OK Please.”This name was inspired by the sign on the back of every truck in Mumbai “Horn OK Please.”

In the Spotlight: Bonnie Sullivan

My manicurist turned me on to Synchronicity! Yes, it's true!

I subscribed to a new age magazine and gave her an old copy. The next time I saw her, she told me about some ads with some free things including a cassette tape from a nearby place in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia! It was a meditation center called Synchronicity...practically in my back yard! I had been looking for something like this expecting to find it in Colorado, Arizona, California...anywhere but here! (In Virginia?!)

I reviewed the brochures that came with the audio tape and learned that Synchronicity offered meditation programs as well as retreats. Very interesting!

More than that, however, there was a Master of Meditation at Synchronicity who had created what was called “High Tech” meditation using music and brain balancing technologies to enhance and quadruple the speed of your meditative experience!! I was hooked! Sign me up! I called up, ordered the Recognitions program, and registered for the introductory retreat. Can you tell I was excited to begin?

I began using the tapes with the technology as directed, and they delivered everything they promised and more! I was thrilled!!!

Eventually I made it to the Sanctuary. In my initial meeting with Master Charles, I was instinctively drawn to him, although I have to acknowledge, I was also a bit afraid of him. Over time, my awe and respect have grown, as well as love and joy, in his energetic presence.

It has been over 20 years now (17 years of them in Personal Mentoring with Master Charles)…this journey with a master spiritual teacher, and it has been the most self-transforming, loving, liberating, and enlightening time of my entire life. The true spiritual journey has its ups and downs as we dimensionally grow, but through it all Master Charles has been my anchor, my teacher and mentor, my friend…my inspiration …for this amazing man “walks his talk” like no other. I cannot imagine my life without his guidance and grace.

In the Spotlight: Dr. Zhihao Oon

Zhihao Oon

I became dimly aware of Master Charles in my early 20s when my mother started disappearing to a weird place in the America for a week or so each year. She attempted to coax me to join her but as a late developer overflowing with teenage angst, I decided that her suggestion was decidedly unwelcome and, as the late Frankie sang, I did it my way.

After a few years of intermittent and lackluster meditation with binaural beats, Buddhist chants, crystals and whatever was then fashionable in new age circles, I felt that my way was no highway and as another song laments, was always moving and going nowhere. My mother on the other hand was a completely different person, her usual anger and reactivity replaced for the most part with a calm and accepting persona. She had either been transformed by meditation or abducted by aliens and replaced with a more benign, pleasant version. It was realizing that the answer might lie with her particular type of meditation practice rather than extra-terrestrial activity and observing my ongoing frustration with my own meditations that led me to Synchronicity Foundation some 8 years ago. Synchronicity indeed…

I met Master Charles in 2007 and have not looked back. Mentoring through a facilitator rapidly became Mentoring with the Master himself and this has been a great source of solace and strength for me. As a doctor and anesthesiologist, working in high stress, life and death situations in the operating theatre or intensive care where voices are raised, tempers are frayed and time is always slipping away, I am constantly reminded of Master Charles’ mantra “Trust and Watch.” This enables me to take a mental step back and watch the scene as a detached observer whilst doing whatever needs to be done in the moment.
On a mental level, I am more aware of my limiting stories and beliefs that would previously run my life and hold me captive; now, I am more at choice as to whether I wish to identify with them or ignore them.

Certainly, on a spiritual level, I have evolved so much since starting high-tech meditation with Synchronicity. My meditations are more profound; I get buzzing over my third eye and other chakras, see pulses of pure white light in a pitch black room, have out of body and other metaphysical experiences with astonishingly regularity. I also find myself at unprovoked random moments, happy and blissful for no good reason, grateful to be here and happy to be alive.
I can truly say that in each moment, I am more than I have ever been. Yes.

Welcome David Termotto

David began his work for Synchronicity Foundation in January and is responsible for public relations and marketing to increase Synchronicity’s online presence.

In the Spotlight: Kerry Skurski

I have been involved with Master Charles and Synchronicity for many years and my resulting exploration of spirituality,meditation and holistic lifestyle has been the most fulfilling of my life.

In 2007 I was diagnosed with a terminal disease. After my diagnosis, I sat contemplating my life and realized that the most truthful experiences I had had were those with Master Charles and my meditations. In that moment, I made a commitment to my soul to be available for its fulfillment and mission. As a result, in addition to being more committed to meditation and developing my holistic lifestyle, I became involved with facilitated mentoring.

I tell many people that one of the main reasons I am still in physical form is because of the rapid evolutionary growth I have experienced in this program, which has helped me to be available to life, even in difficult times, and to choose to take inspired action as I evolve.

The love and dedication I have received from Master Charles and the facilitatorshave helped me develop a truthful foundation for my life, and I am eternally grateful for their assistance. With a deepened understanding of truthful experience, I continue to move forward …Yes!

In the Spotlight: Julie Cowley

Meditation... Ah, meditation… What a blessing it has and continues to be. In 2008 I had the sincere pleasure of meeting Master Charles at an event in Southern California. Immediately I felt a blissful, loving presence and knew it was a privilege and blessing to meet him. I have met and read books by all kinds of teachers, but none has provided me with the palpable experience of divine love that Master Charles did and continues to do. His holistic awareness is a true gift that consistently reminds me of who I am, eternally. And this is not just an intellectual understanding - it is a real experience for me.

I have now been regularly meditating for the past few years with Synchronicity High-Tech Meditation soundtracks. I have also participated in the serve/study program at the last five Stillpointe Meditation retreats at Synchronicity, which have been nothing short of amazing. My state of consciousness is continually growing in bliss, peace and awareness. Sometimes I walk out the door and go about my day and feel like I'm at a meditation retreat. I feel joyful, open, curious, creative, playful, centered in the moment and full of appreciation for life. When I experience a bump in my life, I move through it more peacefully and with greater awareness. I am enjoying the fulfilling journey of meditation and look forward to the continued growth and balance it provides.
