"I  Want  you  to  tell  a story,  to  Write  a  book."

That's the very first message I received from Jessica, after she had passed...

That message was a seed planted into my very being, one which catapulted me into a spiritual journey of untold magic & love.

The idea for the book finally came to me one morning as I waited for the rain to subside just outside of Acapulco, Mexico. I had decided to drive my 1971 Land Rover from Nosara, Costa Rica alllll the way to Chicago, US.

It was a three month journey, loaded with as much adventure as most people receive over 3 lifetimes. As I lay in my little beachside bungalow, staring through the ceiling while nestled up on a little cot, the idea of a book, or rather epic story, came to me.

"Eureka!" I shouted, I cried, I laughed, and I celebrated what I knew would be a powerful & stirring tale of true love, soulmates, adventure, grief, the beyond, reincarnation, spirituality & religion, mental health & healing all rolled into one story.

You see, Jessica hadn't stopped with just the one message of telling me to write a book but hundreds as I made my way all over the world searching for answers, guidance & sustenance that would prove to heal my heart, elevate my mind & strengthen my spiritual connection.

She bestowed palaple signs & encouragement, sent the right people at the right time, and made frequent, profound visitations through my dreams.

And so, Dreams of Antiquity was born. Two souls united then torn apart by fate. One, meant to carry on: to learn, to live, to heal & to find love again, all the while being guided by the other. A tale inspired by my own but told through the lens of a fictional story.

Dreams of Antiquity: The Awakening

Joe Hehn

Dreams of Antiquity: The Awakening, the first installation in the fictional series, is a stirring, deeply emotional, and adventurous tale of one man’s transformative quest through multiple incarnations while being guided by a soulful bond.

Gracien, the King of Babylonia, faces tragedy with the loss of his Beloved, Queen Ayadonna. Delirious and devastated, Gracien perishes under the anguish of grief, but his soul is reborn into a new time period, culture, and body – all the while recalling his past lives with vivid detail.

When faced with mystical guidance, vibrant memories, and lucid dreams, the former King wonders if he’s losing his grip on reality or being guided by his Beloved Aya.


Join Gracien’s adventure through time as he is cast from the kingdom of Babylonia into the embrace of an Aboriginal tribe, where a mystical shamaness tries guiding him towards a path of healing.

It isn’t long before he finds himself enduring the perils of Egyptian pyramids and bazaars while trying to hold it together for his orphaned family.

Gracien then finds his soul trekking the mountain tops of Nepal in search of a secret sanctuary and its Buddhist sage.

His adventure culminates as he traverses the marvels of Beijing while balancing the burden of a kung fu discipleship and the dangers of forbidden love.
