Sakro Sawel means “sacred sun” in Proto-Indo-European. On this website I explore the history and practice of the ancient religion of the sun, which was the largest religion for thousands of years across the world.

The Ancient Religion of the Sun

This book details the history of the ancient Religion of the Sun, based on historical, archaeological, linguistic, and genetic evidence. The rediscovery of this lost global religion has the potential to cause one of the biggest shifts in our understanding of history. Essential reading for those wishing to understand ancient mysteries and religion.

Ancient Solstice

This book explains why so many ancient peoples had aligned their ancient sites to the solstices and equinoxes – revealing it wasn’t simply to do with agriculture, but a profound spiritual belief that saw the journey to heaven and enlightenment written in the sun and stars.

Experiences with Odin

August 25th, 2020|36 Comments

Since I first posted a video on out-of-body experiences and dreams with Odin, I've been taken aback by the number of people who've replied to share their own experience with him - almost 70 people now. So I decided to bring them together in one place.These experiences happened in waking life, dreams, meditation, visions, in answer to prayer, and out-of-body experiences. Some people were even visited and helped by Odin during near-death experiences.They reveal that Odin is indeed a real Being, and in my book The Ancient Religion of the Sun, I trace his origins back to one of the wisdom bringers who taught the Religion of the Sun.

I’m quiet again working on another book

August 25th, 2020|58 Comments

I have been very quiet again these past few months - working on making what has turned into a big update to my book The Ancient Religion of the Sun. It has been unavailable for some months while I've been doing this update. Quite a few people have been trying to get hold of it. It will be available again within the next 6 weeks, I'm pretty sure. And I will let you know when it is.I keep thinking I'm close to finishing, but then something else crops up that I really need to address. But I think it REALLY IS getting close now, and I will post updates about it here. [...]

I’m quiet at the moment because I’m working on a book

June 7th, 2019|47 Comments

Sorry I've been quiet these past few months! It's because I've been working on a book. I expect I should be finished with it in December, and my publisher will then take another month to format and produce the book, so that it will be out at the beginning of January 2020. In January then, I plan to be back into making more videos. [...]

Religion of the Sun began 36,500 BC ?

January 20th, 2019|19 Comments

Evidence is mounting for the Pyramids & Sphinx of Egypt having first been established around 36,500 BC. Ancient Egyptian records state that their civilization began tens of thousands of years ago, as far back as 36,500 BC, and that these beginnings were a "golden age" when their solar religion was established by the "gods in human form." [...]

Stonehenge winter solstice 2018

January 20th, 2019|17 Comments

Great to see people out at sites of the ancient religion of the sun at the solstice, but sad to see a sacred place treated like a fairground. What do gyrating women, African drumming, and people in costumes have to do with Stonehenge? Absolutely nothing. No one would consider doing this at other ancient sites or sacred places. Will some of the British remember their roots enough to restore dignity and meaning to the solstice at Stonehenge? [...]

Tiwanaku winter solstice 2018

January 20th, 2019|26 Comments

Perhaps my favorite solstice celebration - it's done with so much heart. Attended by the Bolivian President, conducted by the indigenous Aymara, held at the sacred site of Tiwanaku in Bolivia. Someone filmed this in a hotel as it was being aired live on National TV. Will peoples in other parts of the world also remember and return to their sacred roots that tap into the ancient religion of the sun? [...]

Well, it's been a long time since my last video, as I have spent the last few months working on my book The Ancient Religion of the Sun. Now it's out, I've turned my attention back to making videos. Here is the first one I've made since the book - more are on the way.A number of people are having experiences with the being known as Odin or Wotan in Germanic and Norse mythology. These experiences include dreams, out-of-body experiences, and even near-death like experiences. In this video, I share some of these, as well as my own out-of-body experience with Odin/Wotan. [...]
