About This Center

Synchronicity Sanctuary is the Headquarters for Synchronicity Foundation for Modern Spirituality’s International Meditation and Retreat Center and Stillpointe Monastery. 

Located in Virginia’s Scenic Blue Ridge Mountains, the 450-acre sylvan retreat is just 45 minutes south of Charlottesville.  It is home to the Synchronicity monastic community and offers ample guest facilities for retreat participants in a tranquil, rustic setting.

It was the location’s powerful energetic enhanced by quartz crystal that goes deep into the earth that drew our Founder, Master Charles Cannon, to this location initially. Over the years he and the resident monastic community built and maintained this powerful energy field through their consistent holistic focus and daily practice of Synchronicity High-Tech Meditation. 

After his death, Master Charles’ successor, Brother Ben, and resident staff continue to share their collective experience of living a balanced, holistic meditative lifestyle with hundreds of retreat visitors every year. 

Our Center also invites like-minded individuals to take advantage of the many benefits available at our facility for their classes, trainings and retreats.  Contact us for information and pricing.

Synchronicity Contemporary Meditation Soundtracks combine science with the ancient art of meditation…I found them to have an immediate effect, both calming and expanding, from the very first moment of hearing them…of all the meditation soundtracks I have listened to over the last few years, I have never experienced any that delivered this particular noticeable effect so quickly. - Carol Kramer, Editor Body, Mind and Spirit
