Myrkviðr (Old Norse "dark wood")* is the ancient forest of fairy tales; a liminal space of coming and goings, where time is elastic, stretching from eternity to an instant in a snap of a witch’s fingers. The dark woods are a cross cultural constant in canonical literature around the world and are a classic obstacle to the hero on his journey. The black forest is a perilous land of magic and seductive beauty meant to bewitch the senses and test the soul. Here is a place where the trauma of a journey can be soothed, and the nightmares for a lifetime gathered.  

*Myrkviðr is believed to be located between Asgard, the realm of the Gods and Muspelheim, a burning land of fire and giants.
