Guru Purnima

2019 In-Person Retreat

  Enroll in Course

Saturday, July 13th - Wednesday, July 17th
Divine Lineage Center, Laytonville, California

As human beings, we are in one of the biggest transitions in history. Divine qualities like unconditional love, forgiveness, and discernment, once associated with only a few rare holy men and women, are now all of ours to embody out of necessity.

How do we meet this challenge from a place of non-action and understanding in the midst of our own awakening, karmas, and the chaos of the world?

We can so easily connect to the Guru’s grace and transformative love during Guru Purnima. It’s the perfect time to ask these questions and receive clarity.

In the Sai Yuga, after some changes and destruction, things will go very peacefully.

It will be a Yuga of love. A Yuga of understanding one another, loving each other, communicating with each other, being truthful, honest, sincere, showing sympathy, mercy and kindness to each other. It will last for a thousand years.

In the Sai Yuga, everyone will be sympathetic, kind and very spiritual. Everyone will want to know about God, and love, and to understand each other. It will be very easy to find God because Shirdi Baba will be working with everybody.

- Sri Kaleshwar

What People Are Saying...

I have taken part in many online programs through the Divine Lineage. In my own experience, and in the reflections perceived in friends who’ve also participated, I think for those who look to accelerate and deepen their spiritual maturity and understanding of life and to elevate their consciousness this ancient knowledge and techniques really do speak right to this.

The opportunity to take part in both online courses as well as to receive healing energy transmission in the same way are rare and unique events offered to people everywhere. In addition there are complimentary online resources for those who are curious or new to the knowledge or such energy experiences. Divine Lineage offer a unique platform combining ancient wisdom with modern technology while making it available and accessible in new ways to students worldwide.

Many times have I also been completely immersed in the powerful healing energy transmissions received during online group meditations and fire ceremonies.

Monika Penukonda and Nityaananda

Monika Penukonda

Monika worked closely with Sri Kaleshwar (1973-2012) for 15 years in Penukonda, India. She is the editor and ghostwriter of his books: The Real Life and Teachings of Jesus Christ; Shirdi Baba, The Universal Master, Victory Through Vaastu: Ancient Science of Vedic Architecture; The Divine Mystery Fort, The Teachings of Sri Kaleshwar. She is the author ofKaleshwar, and a modern-day rendering of the Sri Sai Satcharitra. Sri Kaleshwar said of her, “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.” Sri Kaleshwar transferred the lineage to her shortly before his mahasamadhi in 2012.

Nityaananda (Clint Thomp­son, MD)

After experiencing the power of Sai Shakti Healing firsthand from Sri Kaleshwar, he gave up his Western medical practice to study healing in India. For 15 years, he was trained directly by Sri Kaleshwar then asked by him to train other healers in the West. Nityaananda was Sri Kaleshwar's personal physician; he is the author of The Aware­ness of Heal­ing. He founded the Divine Lineage Center in 2004.

Monika and Nityaananda now reside at the Divine Lin­eage Cen­ter in Mendocino County, Northern Cal­i­for­nia. They give teach­ings, heal­ings and shak­ti­pat trans­mis­sion at the Center and around the world. They have led processes in which many students received the darshan of the Divine Mother.
