Sanctuary: A Contemporary Meditation Retreat Center and Spiritual Community

What is Sanctuary?

Sanctuary is a spiritual community and contemporary meditation retreat center.  We support and mentor meditators at all stages of their journey, from beginners to those who have had a meditation practice for many years.

Sanctuary is also a place that resonates with the energy of resident staff who, for 40+ years, have lived The Holistic Lifestyle and practiced daily High-Tech Meditation®. 

For us, meditation is not an afterthought or a trend. It is how we live and who we have always been.

Sanctuary, a division of the Synchronicity Foundation, was founded by M. C. Cannon, an ordained Vedic monk, American mystic, master of meditation, and Holistic Lifestyle mentor. MC was an early pioneer in the application of technology to meditation and the originator of High-Tech Meditation®. Synchronicity High-Tech Meditation® soundtracks use Sonic Technology to balance your brain hemispheres and create deep and profound meditative states. 

He always envisioned Sanctuary as a place where meditators could come and experience balance, wholeness and fulfillment as a means to personal spiritual transformation through a diversity of offerings. 

We remain dedicated to this mission.

“Invest in your wholeness…the result is fulfillment.” M.C. Cannon
