In the ancient world an elaborate temple complex was built in dedication to their healer god Asklepios. It is recognized that Asklepios would have the power to cure supplicants from a variety of ailments, within sleep and sacred dreams.
Anyone who desired healing might travel many hundreds of miles to reach such a temple, working through periods of fasting and purification, taking part in invocation rituals, drinking water from holy, mineral-rich springs and adhering to a variety of other devotional customs.
Finally they would lay down upon a ‘sacred skin’ (called a kline in ancient Greek - from which we derive the word clinic) to await a curative reverie. This process was called incubation - ‘to lie upon’.
Where better to explore the mystery of dream incubation that in a dream temple itself?
