Interview with Jennifer of SOLove Inner Radiance

An interview I did with Jennifer of the Facebook page SOLove Inner Radiance was just put up today as part of the ‘Sol2Soul Global Summit 2’ Jennifer is hosting, in which she focuses on topics related to the sun. She invited me on as a guest speaker after reading Mark (my husband’s) book The Path of the Spiritual Sun.


I think it’s a great overall summary and introduction to the ancient religion of the sun, and to ancient sites and religion in general.

We discuss the real ancient meaning of sun worship, what the sun meant and symbolized to many ancient people, what the solstices and equinoxes mean and why they were so celebrated in the ancient world, how many ancient sites are not only aligned to the sun but also to one another, how many of these sites are connected to one another, why they were built to align to the sun and stars, how they were founded as part of the same religion, how this religion was founded, when it was founded, and who it was founded by, how many ancient gods were real people of the past, and how people can connect with the sun and this ancient religion today.

I really enjoyed speaking to Jennifer – I couldn’t have asked for a lovelier interviewer. I wish her every success in her work.

    Loved watching this interview 🙂

    I remember visiting the ancient pyramids as a teenager and being saddened when I learned that they used to look very different. People had been taking stones from them to build other structures. I remember wishing they were still covered in a layer of white stone, imagining what that might have looked like.

    It’s incredible that you felt the power of the pyramids even at the airport.

    I recently visited Glastonbury, and my husband and I were traveling there in the evening on the bus. I remember looking at the moon through the window and feeling a shift in the air. Things felt….different. I felt suddenly very moved internally, and I have no real words to describe it. Glastonbury felt both very mystical and intense to me. I loved being there.

    That was a great interview Lara. I think it will have a good impact to whoever watches with an open mind.
    It is simple and at the same time very inviting to look deeper into the topic. Your commitment is very inspiring.

    I hope you get many more interviews like this.

    Hi Lara,

    It was such a joy to watch this interview. I love to see you so enthusiastic about some of the questions. It is obvious that your research has uncovered mysteries that you are very passionate about. It was nice to hear you speak about the tug of war and meaning of it for the Spring Equinox, because of the newfound insight I got from hearing you speak about the symbolism and the light overcoming the darkness after the great battle. I have always resonated more with the Autumn Equinox because I have felt and understood the spiritual correlation between the sun’s descent into darkness and my own internal descent into darkness. I can’t wait for next Spring to have a ceremony with more understanding!

    You have done so much work behind the scenes to have such a great understanding of all of the connections and origins of the religion of the sun around the world. I am excited and hopeful about the renewal of The Religion of the Sun and what it might mean for the world. I hope the interview inspires people to take up your suggestion not to leave it in ancient times.

    As a result of this work, I have had the chance to experience some of the ceremonies you have laid out, sometimes with groups and other times just my husband and me. I really feel that when we start moving in the right direction, sometimes making great efforts to be at an ancient symbolic site for the solstices and equinoxes, there is Divine Help and a force that carries us through obstacles. The ceremonies are always special and for many years now we have celebrated the equinoxes and solstices giving us a chance to review our past year and quarter year. This is all thanks to you. I never would have been doing this on my own. We went to Chaco Canyon in the United States for the most recent Autumn Equinox and got to see an amazing alignment. We are now in Cusco, Peru and have gotten a chance to revel in the beauty of many ancient ruins and we plan to celebrate the upcoming solstice here.

    I look forward to more ceremonies and experiences and I hope that they will be revived for more people as they were for people of the Ancient Religion of the Sun. When these ceremonies are experienced, they can be so magical with so much learning, not only in the event, but also in the preparation and reflection afterward.

    All the best with your work.

        Thank you very much. Machu Piccu is such a powerful place. It is wonderful to be so close. Thank you for your wishes!

          How cool you guys are at Machu Picchu! Hope you’re able to get a great feel of the place and it would be interesting to hear of your personal experience.

          I happened to watch another interview by Jenifer where she was interviewing someone called Jamie Janover, who is part of an effort of Nassim Haramein and the Resonance Science Foundation giving alternative views on the workings of the universe— mainly through physics. It was a bit of brain overload hearing many concepts in a brief time, but there were also some things in there which ‘resonated’. Things that are in a line of thinking, a certain zeitgeist, which seems to be emerging currently among people regarding feeling a depth present in ancient civilisations, extraterrestrial existence and consciousness.

          Anyway I thought I’d mention it because coincidentally they’re now in Peru as well.

          Doing things like checking out skeletons with unknown paternal DNA? (and different physiology of course)

          As well as checking out those enigmatic beautiful walls in Sacsayhuamán.

          I think it’s wonderful there are more people looking into these things with a genuine interest. Same goes for the people following Graham Hancock’s work, and those supporting Steven Greer’s efforts for example. Hopefully such movements (and the spiritual knowledge contained within the Religion of the Sun of course!) can help bring about a few much needed ‘basic’ shifts in paradigm regarding these matters and our purpose here on earth. So it might be nice to say hi 😉

            Hi Karim,

            Thanks for sharing. I haven’t really processed your post yet. We are currently in Bolivia preparing for the solstice. I will look more into the information you shared after the solstice! 🙂

          • Karim December 17, 2018 at 10:20 am

            Oh don’t worry. 🙂

            Rather all the best and a wonderful learning during your preparation, and a warm and moving solstice at such an amazing place!! Would be great to hear what it was like, what you felt there locally and learned about the religion of the sun related culture and sites.

    How exciting that you did this interview Lara! I hope it will reach a lot of people who otherwise might never have come across your work.

    It was really enjoyable and educational to watch. The depth and quality depends a lot on the interviewer’s questions, and in this case Jennifer did a great job with being perceptive and intelligent. And you did a wonderful job describing the Religion of the Sun and its history in such an in-depth and yet easy to understand way within this short time.

    I think what touched me the most was what you said at the end, because I was expecting a different sort of answer, but it was so personal and encouraging, how we can try and bring this information and knowledge into our lives, if even in a small way, yet when we do make the effort it can become alive for us and we learn through the experience. I know for myself it’s very different, and also very inspiring, than just reading about it, like you also said.

    Really enjoyed this interview. Was a great introduction to the ancient religion of the sun and how people can connect with the spiritual sun today, like Lara said at the end, if even in a small way, but just to begin to intuitively feel the connection and bring it into your life.

    I enjoyed watching this interview and gained a lot of insight from it – thanks for posting it. It was nice to see Jennifer’s ethusiasm which seemed genuine and sincere and of course Lara did an excellent job answering all of those questions. It would be great to see conversations like this one happen more often.

    As others have said, it was great to see an interview on these topics and that the interviewer let you answer without interrupting and seemed genuinely interested in what you had to say, as well as giving you that opportunity at the end too to relay what you felt most important to convey to people. Nicely done!

    It was a very interesting interview, Lara, emitting warmth, kindness between interlocutors, truthfulness, and merit of what is spoken.
    I wish many more people can find some answers about this new perhaps for them ”uncharted world” of the Ancient religion of the Sun, and bring it to their life, as you suggested at the end. Thank you and Jennifer again!

    Yes, I agree it’s very important to give people a genuine choice based on truth and reality Lara. Thanks to you, Mark and those who support you for your ongoing efforts in achieving this.

    Thanks Lara and Jennifer for this wonderful interview. You have done a great job Lara of explaining the significance of the Religion of the Sun throughout the world, along with its sacred sites and the connections between them, even though many are separated across continents by vast distances. Your comment about feeling the energy of the pyramids of Egypt upon arrival at the airport really stood out to me, along with the wider point that this special type of spiritual energy can be felt at other ancient sacred sites.

    You also summarised things very well at the end, where you mentioned that although an intellectual understanding has its place, it is surpassed by the direct spiritual connection and experience that can be gained by bringing back these ancient principles into our daily lives. As you mentioned, it would be wonderful if people who understand these principles could create their own sacred places, which can in turn be filled with spiritual energy. I’ve felt the difference when being in spiritual environments and know that they have their own unique power to cut through the worries and concerns of everyday life and give people an instant lift.

    Thanks again for bringing this video out and for all the efforts you and Mark have made in order to acquire this knowledge. I hope that along with the books, the videos will reach many more people who have an interest in understanding humanity’s spiritual past.

    This is a great video Lara. You present so much information in such an easy, manageable and understandable way.

    Congratulations on getting this information out through other channels. It is wonderful that more and more people are taking an interest in the ancient Religion of the Sun.

    I also find myself “glued” to hearing this information whenever and however it is presented. I love to hear about all of the ancient mysteries and their connections, and the Wisdom Bringers who were able to spread this knowledge around the world so very long ago.

    Thank you for bringing all this information together again for us today.

  14. Olga November 6, 2018 at 3:23 am - Reply

    Lara, this was phenomenal. A wonderful and easy to listen to conversation on the importance of the ancient religion of the Sun. As others have put it, the questions Jennifer brought forth were pertinent and well thought through, and you broke down the spirituality of the sun in such a digestible way never shying away from rare but important concepts like the role of darkness and light.

    And as I watched these new and unique concepts of the Path of the Spiritual Sun, like seeds breaking through the fertile soil of this new medium, you could really see how information grows like a living life form as it reaches the understanding of a new person/audience.

    I very rarely see this information presented anywhere except here. The feeling behind solstices and equinoxes is usually dry and void of the deeper calling towards universal principals found in your books.

    So it just filled me with so much happiness to see this message in a new medium and getting the exposure it deserves. I am so happy for you, and for everyone supporting the work on this site.

    I really enjoyed this interview, Lara. Jennifer seems genuinely interested in the Sun and its spiritual meaning and through this interest and your answers I feel the connection to the listeners was a lot stronger and deeper.
    Thank you and to Jennifer for this great interview!

  16. Karim November 5, 2018 at 10:10 pm - Reply

    One thing that popped up for me from this interview and other works from Lara.

    It seems in this current day lots of alternative theories are going around, some to the level of being outlandish (plenty of documentaries on Youtube, one example being the whole flat earth thing, where to me what that internet ‘phenomenon’ says about us as people is more intriguing than the theory itself btw.)

    Then there’s also an advanced individual’s personal experience of divine things, what’s going on ‘in the heavens’ etc,. And if this is genuine it can be a most magnificent source for those able to take it.

    What I’m getting at, or trying to, is that someone can’t just take a particular theory on how spiritual matters work and try to convince people of it. People interested in these things nowadays are not foolish and are quite ‘internet-streetwise’.

    I don’t want to expand for too long on a small point I wanted to make— In 2018 those interested, when encountered with claims about the spiritual truths they are after, seem to be in need of tangible back up proof, Lara’s style excels in catering to this, by showing and explaining how what she claims can actually be verified in the world. Thus giving the modern interested internet sceptic an opportunity to, hopefully, set free that part within them that is looking for the experience.

    It appears to me that for anyone interested in sharing this it will be an essential prerequisite to confidently know this material very well, if we’d wish to guide someone across the bridge from the information to experiencing.
    Personally that’s what I’m after, wishing others to experience.

    • Mike November 6, 2018 at 3:47 am - Reply

      Hi Karim,
      Yes, I think having evidence for claims is an absolute must these days, even to open people up to the personal experience of the religion of the sun. As I was watching the interview, I was deeply moved by Lara’s presentation and her deep knowledge and research into the subject made for a very convincing thesis that an ancient seafaring civilization instigated the religion of the sun around the world.
      As an academic who reads and writes research papers (although in a different field), I know that new ideas and perspectives need to be placed in context with established research, experiments, evidence, etc. And Lara does an excellent job of assimilating many pieces of research into a clear narrative.
      I think this sort of well-researched approach can help a lot of people and maybe open the world up to this radical new view of ancient history.

    • Michael November 6, 2018 at 4:17 pm - Reply

      Yes, I agree Karim and Mike – it’s very important to have evidence-based research. I come from a pretty sceptical perspective myself, but Lara and Mark’s information not only satisfies the sceptic within me, but also inspires me to gain my own knowledge through personal experience.

    Very nice interview with alot of interesting things that where brought up. And as Jiri wrote, it´s nice to see the interviewer listen to what is said and not interupt all the time as I have seen in other interviews on the Internet, etc. I find the eyes of the interviewer a bit interesting aswell.

    Death was mentioned in the interview. I remember back in the good old days there use to be forums discussing the death of egos, practicing awareness, etc. Are those days over or can they be found on another site?

    Hi Lara,

    This is such a great interview. it is wonderful to see how you summarise the history of the religion of the sun into this short time and yet manage to convey so many profound aspects of the great structures and the traditions. You present the information with such a natural and friendly tone, it is great to see.

    You can see that the host of the program was really impressed with the information, much of which was totally new to her.

    Each time I see a new video it adds another layer of understanding and also so much inspiration – to think that in this day and age where there is so much division and darkness, we have the opportunity to honour what the old practitioners of the Sun did and gave to humanity by celebrating the Solstices and Equinoxes and tuning them into a means for us to connect with nature but also the Divine. So I am so grateful to have access to this information which both you and Mark have made possible for us. I look forward to learning more but to also practicing more and striving to reach the Light and connect.

    This is so wonderful to see…
    This information is too precious too remain in a bubble.

    I’ve only been able to watch the first 10 minutes today, but keenly look forward to viewing the rest of it. I was quite impressed by Lara’s answering ability and found that educational for me, each time sort of stepping back and making sure that it’s not just an answer, but making sure a listener would be able to comprehend its significance. It gave it a sense of this underlying purity.
    At the same the obvious command of the many specifics of this body of information was also impressive! This also brought another insight.

    Thanks to that lady for having you on the show, and I wish there will be many more interviews like this to come! (and I have a positive feeling there will be) Also hoping for the SakroSawel Youtube channel to take off even more!

    Thank you for posting this great interview. I am very happy for you that more people are recognizing this important knowledge about the Ancient Religion of the Sun and are willing to share it with a broader audience. It’s really fantastic that new channels are opened to get this knowledge to more people. I really liked your calm way of explaining things. I hope there will be more interviews like this for the future. I am also very happy to see the Sakro Sawel website and all the activities you do, gain a nice momentum! 🙂

    I just finished listening to this video and I must say it was really well done in the sense of explaining these, often difficult esoteric principles, in simple terms for somebody who hasn’t heard about it before, or maybe not in such a depth. Kudos to Lara for that, and also to Jennifer for being such a polite and attentive interviewer, as I can imagine explaining these complicated phenomena in such a clear way took a lot of concentration on Lara’s side, so it would have been quite bad to break the flow of her thoughts by careless interruptions or out of place questions.

    I also liked how Jennifer’s genuine enthusiasm with the topic seemed to grow with the passing time, which got also transmitted to the listener. 🙂

    Thank you for making videos like these, I really hope this information travels far and wide, and also as Lara said at the end, not just the information, but an inspiration to actually experience these things for ourselves.

I also liked this video for the message that was passed to people, very important one. So thank you Lara for sharing this interview. If there is need to do Czech subtitles for this video, just let me know and I will be happy to do it, to perhaps bring more light into the hearts and lives other people.

    Hi Lara, I really enjoyed watching this interview – Jennifer was a really lovely interviewer with very pertinent questions, and overall it gave a really good overview of the ancient religion of the sun, talking about the wisdom bringers and how so many ancient sites are connected in not only from their alignements to the Sun, but to each other, that a line could be drawn around the Earth and connect them, and even to specific sacred numbers / used in their spacing between one another. I really appreciated the overall connectivity of several aspects yet not mind-mumbling responses you gave Lara to some of the questions, as it also gave me a deeper intellectual understanding of the physicality representation and spiritual representations of the sun, and how they connect to one another, and the symbols they represent. Here’s to seeing many more of these interviews – and like Jennifer, at times I felt with her the same ‘amazing’ feeling, when I thought about all that this information, the wisdom bringers, their mission what it meant and how it was spread, or passed on later on. This is really such an incredible tale of courage, determination and really at its core, love toward humanity.

      Thank you Martin and all of you for your support, which you give in so many different ways. This message is so important to get to people. Of course, everyone does whatever they want, but with so much darkness and deceit in every area of life, I think we can work to at least give people a choice based on the truth.

      I’m sorry I haven’t been able to answer some of the questions you’ve been leaving in the comments, and that some of you have emailed in. I do plan to get to them, but I am working on the next video now since it has been a long break from the last one with writing the book.

        Thank you so much for you warm response and for letting us know Lara. I really appreciate your taking the time to respond to comments here.

        What you said about giving people the chance of making a choice based on the truth, that’s a huge insight and also I think reflects the deep love that your work is stemming from. Thank you for that.

        I’m really looking forward to your next video! All the best with it, and with all that you do.
