Familiar Spirits | Surrey Alley Sleep Story
Listen now
Witness the connections between humans and animals in this fantasy bedtime story.   In tonight’s story, you are the proprietor of The Wild Hunt, a shop in the magical shopping district known as Surrey Alley, which pairs wizards with their animal familiars. You open the shop for the day, greeting each of the resident animals and reflecting on their specific magic. A young customer comes in, nervous about their initiation into the world of magic, and you assist them in bonding their familiar. As the day comes to a close, you recall your own experience bonding your animal familiar.   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 it serves you, 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.   -   🌙 Audience Survey 🌙   I want to get to know you better!
