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. - Noeleen Shaw

      Telling the Truth

    Brother Ben is my son, I am his Father. Ben was born in Southern Illinois where he lived next to a wildlife refuge. Growing up with Ben I always considered him to be very special. My Guru Swami Satchidananda graced our home. I was a Yoga Teacher when I met Ben's Mom. Ben loved to climb and as he grew up he proved to be an avid hiker and climber, Once upon a time Ben met the challenge of walking away from drugs, never one to drink or smoke he began to realize his Spiritual Path after leaving College. I am very proud of Ben, I believe he will add to the Spiritual Legacy of Muktaananda and Master Charles. It is my hope that those who know Ben will understand he has a lot of wisdom to share, but he needs time to Dive Deep Within. It is my hope and Prayer that Ben will continue on this path, he is a gentle Soul, and a wonderful Son. Thank you for the opportunity to share with you my joy and Love for Ben. I am 70 years old and I hope each of you can feel Ben's Love. Thank you Steven Levine Bens Dad
