About Lara Atwood

I am a practitioner and researcher into the ancient Religion of the Sun, and most specifically the Indo-European branch of it, which is my own native tradition. I am author of the book 'The Ancient Religion of the Sun,' - a religion that I believe is one of the most ancient in the world, and the origin of many spiritual traditions and sacred sites around the globe. I run the YouTube channel SakroSawel and the website sakrosawel.com ("sakro sawel" means "sacred sun" in the Proto-Indo European language).

On Nov 25th 2021, Egypt celebrated the restoration and reopening of its ancient "Sphinx Avenue" with music, fireworks, and a dramatic recreation of an ancient Egyptian religious procession. For me, it's incredible to see, because it recreates what a ceremony of the Religion of the Sun would have looked like (though with some modern-day artistic license) in its ancient heartland in Egypt.
