"If you think you know us from a few words written by long dead mortals, you're wrong."                               

--Persephone, Maiden Goddess & Queen of the Dead 

Hades plunged the blade into my gut without compunction. I looked up into his face, my own

twisted in pain, and said, "Thank you."                                                   --The Book of Croesus

“I am a forest, and a night of dark trees: but he who is not afraid of my darkness, will find banks full of roses under my cypresses.”
― Friedrich Nietzsche, Thus Spoke Zarathustra

We've Been Expecting You

What if the worlds you thought

existed solely in your imagination were real?

Would you allow yourself to walk among gods?

Would you seek answers to questions only

whispered in the back of your mind?

Would you let your pain and sorrows rise to

the surface to be scraped away?

Would you have the courage to enter?

There are beauty, power, and wisdom here, with us, in the dark.



Welcome to the Underworld.

Your Oath on the River Styx

Keep the promises you've made to yourself or go mad. 
Either way, we can help.

-The Furies


I saw something unexpected in him. I saw love, at first tiny and distant, like the sun. Then he held my hand to steady me and it was huge and up-close; a burning love for all that is.

--The Book of Lourdes

"Do not mistake my silence for apathy. 

I bear witness to your struggle and accompany you to the bottom of the deepest valley where the echo of my silence wraps around you as you surrender your self-inflicted cruelties and eventually open to peace."

--Hades, God of the Dead & King of the Underworld
