"When the sacred masculine and feminine unite in a spiritual partnership what they create has a revolutionary impact on creation."                                - Monika Penukonda


SEPTEMBER 13 - 20, 2019

Journey with us to Assisi, to follow in the footsteps of the Christian mystics, St. Francis and St. Clare, and explore their lives through the lens of Jesus and the Divine Feminine. As we immerse ourselves in the spiritual vibrations of Assisi and the sacred places connected with St. Francis and St. Clare, we will learn the story of Jesus, Mother Mary, Mary Magdalene, and the Goddess Mahakali, as written in ancient palm manuscripts from India.

We will look at the lives of St. Francis and St. Clare in the same light - as Shiva and Shakti - the sacred masculine and the sacred feminine.



Monika and Ramakrishna will share teachings about Jesus and the Divine Feminine from ancient palm leaf manuscripts from India. These teachings have long been kept secret and were revealed by Sri Kaleshwar (1973-2012), a spiritual master from southern India. Monika and Ramakrishna studied this knowledge directly with Sri Kaleshwar for 15 years and are now sharing these sacred teachings during the Assisi power journeys. Learning this knowledge from these two great teachers in such a private setting is a great boon to anyone on the journey and a very rare opportunity.


Monika and Ramakrishna will share the stories revealed in these manuscripts: the practices Mary did over many lifetimes to bring Jesus’ soul to the world, Jesus’ life in India, his worship of the Goddess, practices he did to awaken miracle powers, his marriage to Mary Magdalene.

We will explore the Goddess (Divine Mother) energy in the saints’ lives and our lives; Mother Mary as the embodiment of the Divine Mother in modern times; the Holy Womb Chakra -- the practices Mary did, how to connect and experience divine souls to help us on our spiritual journey; the need for sacred partnership and soul mates on the path to enlightenment.

There will be daily meditations, teachings, fire ceremonies and initiation (spiritual transmission) as part of the Assisi retreat.

About Monika, Sri Kalesh­war said, “Monika belongs to the Divine Mother, Kanaka Durga’s, feet. She is a Divine Ma on the planet. She’ll walk and give a lot of wis­dom and clar­ity to bloom wis­dom. This lady will bless mil­lions of peo­ple on the planet. She’s going to do it.”

Monika is the author of Kalesh­war and a mod­ern ren­der­ing of the Sri Sai Satchar­i­tra, The Won­der­ful Life and Teach­ings of Shirdi Sai Baba; edi­tor of Sri Kaleshwar’s books, includ­ing The Real Life and Teach­ings of Jesus Christ; Shirdi Sai Baba, The Uni­ver­sal Mas­ter and The Divine Mystery Fort.

Ramakrishna before a water ceremony on the bank of the Ganges


Ramakrishna lived and study with supernatural Indian saint, Swami Kaleshwar, for 15 years.  Sri Kaleshwar’s life mission was to release the top ancient knowledge that has been alive for thousands of years but kept hidden, being passed to only one or perhaps two students through a continuous lineage.  A lot of this knowledge were the techniques and processes practiced by Jesus and Mary.  Sri Kaleshwar said we are now entering the darkest part of the darkest age of humanity and that this needed knowledge belongs to humanity as a whole, not a select few.

Through sharing what he has learned Ramakrishna's ambition is the same as Sri Kaleshwar's: To spread this knowledge to help the world and to create spiritual masters, not students.



Kayla is the coordinator for this journey and your point-person for all questions to help you get ready for this incredible experience! Kayla went on her first power journey ten years ago and a seed was planted to one day offer these same life-changing experiences to others. She hoped to one day offer programs where people got to experience some of the most powerful places on the planet with spiritual masters. Her dream became a reality and now she runs all of the Paramashiva power journeys! She’s happy to answer any questions you might have and you can always reach her at kayla@paramashiva.org.




“The journey to Assisi was my second power journey with the Paramashiva group and I’m finding it challenging to properly capture in words a way to fully express the immense growth and connection I received from this journey.  Ramakrishna and Monika have a seamless way of tying in the spirit of Saint Francis and Saint Clare to the Eastern Vedic traditions from which they have studied so deeply.  The trip was perfectly structured with a mix of seeing the historic places where St Francis and St Clare cultivated the expression of their spirit with plenty of time to silently connect in meditation on a personal level while also having the opportunity to hear the beautiful teachings of Ramakrishna and Monica in a group setting. I personally fell in love with Assisi and experienced so much more on so many levels with this group than I could ever have imagined.”

- Mark M., Los Angeles

“Incredibly beautiful and very powerful soul journey. Kayla planned everything perfectly, from the beautiful hotel to all of the amazing places we visited. Ramakrishna and Monika are Divine teachers individually but together, they are a force! The intimate teachings, the planning of all the beautiful, powerful places we visited and of course all of the amazing souls that journeyed with us ~ this is a power journey we definitely look forward to taking again!”

- Harry & Kelly W., Cincinnati

“If you have been inspired by St. Frances and want to dig deeper into his spiritual journey this trip is definitely for you!

Monika and Ramakrishna provided a thorough tour and knowledge of the legacy and places St. Frances and Saint Clara had graced during their lives. The experience of visiting each of these scared spots was truly a transformative experience. One treasured experience was at the sanctuary of Mount La Verna (the spot where St. Frances experienced the stigmata- the bleeding of the palms and feet that represents crucifixion of Jesus). We all sat and listened to deep teachings about Jesus and the divine feminine in an ancient cave while above us the monks were doing their daily progression chanting while heading to the chapel. Everyone was immersed in deep peace and silence. Imagine sitting in this ancient ravine with beautiful melodies echoing down upon you transporting you back in time.”
