The Halls of Asgard
Listen now
Explore the city of the gods in this Norse mythology-inspired bedtime story.   In tonight’s bedtime story, you are a child of Asgard, and beloved by the Aesir. As such, they welcome you into their magnificent halls. You wander, for a day, through your favorite places, learning from the gods, like Frigg, Odin, and Thor. As night draws near, you join Heimdall, the watcher for the gods, outside the gates – and as you guard Bifrost, the rainbow bridge, he tells you stories of how all things came to be.   Sleep & Sorcery is a folklore and fantasy-inspired sleep series. My name is Laurel, and I’ll be your guide on tonight’s fantastical journey. Sleep & Sorcery is one part bedtime story, one part guided meditation, and one part dreamy adventure. Listen to my voice for as long as you like, and when you’re ready, feel free to let go of the story and relax into sleep. If you’re still awake as the story comes to an end, I’ll guide you through a relaxing visualization exercise.   - 🌙 Audience Survey 🌙   I want to get to know you better!
