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).

It was live streamed on YouTube, but something happened with the audio, which doesn't start until 1.57 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rKVilND522Y

So I decided to bring them together in one place. These experiences happened in waking life, dreams, meditation, [...]
