Egyptian Mysteries and Lucid Dreaming with Sarah Janes

Is there evidence to show that people were lucid dreaming in ancient times? Today’s guest is Sarah Janes. We’ll talk about her interests in ancient mysteries and her new book: Initiation into Dream Mysteries: Drinking from the Pool of Mnemosyne.

Sarah describes how she has been lucid dreaming since a baby and often returns to the same dream places again and again. We talk about the Asklepion Dream Temple healing traditions including inductions that will maximize your chances of encountering gods and goddesses in dreams or their avatars including snakes or dogs. She speaks about Mnemosyne (pronounced knee-moss-in-nay) who was the mother of the Muses and served to guide the deceased to Hades. Drinking from her pool ensures remembrance.

Sara describes several techniques to enhance dream recall including practicing by writing down a waking day as if it were a dream. She also speaks about cognitive enhancers that can increase the frequency of lucid dreaming and ends by describing her ongoing podcast releases and some of her many upcoming events.

BIO: Sarah Janes is a hypnotherapist, a lucid dreamer and an studier of Egyptian antiquities. She hosts many online events, schools and podcasts regarding ancient mysteries.

Mnemosyne is the archetypal deity of the Asklepion dream temple tradition. Sarah’s book explores the history and culture of the dream as medicine in the Western esoteric tradition and is designed to lead the reader on a self-initiatory journey inspired by the dream philosophies and sleep temple systems of our wisest ancient ancestors.
