Dream Healing: Hesychia--The Great Stillness

This blog was initially written for the Facebook Group: Worlds of Myth. I was the first non-Greek invited to join this wonderful collection of writers, philosophers and educators dedicated to bringing ancient wisdom and a passion for mythology back to our modern world.

Hello Mythologists! Today let’s talk about sleep and dreams and ancient wisdom.


What did the Ancients think about Reality? And what can we learn from them?

The 5th Century Oracle of Elea Parmenides said we travel “all through all there is” and that “what-is is—un-generated and imperishable; whole, single-limbed, steadfast and complete; nor was it once; nor will it be, since it is, now, altogether, One, continuous.” (Trans. Peter Kingsley, REALITY, 2004)
