Narrator: Female

A Garden for All Excerpt:

“Are you ready for another great day!” Brian’s dad said as he peeked through the doorway.

Brian grinned even wider as he responded, “Yes! Let’s get going!” Brian’s dad walked over to Brian’s dresser and asked, “What do you want to wear today?”

“I was thinking I would wear my orange train shirt. I think Javier is going to wear his green train shirt.” As Brian and his dad completed their morning routine Winfield wondered what they were going to do. Once Brian was buckled in, Winfield steered while Brian pushed the wheels around, working together to get to the kitchen for breakfast. After breakfast Brian’s mom and dad followed as Brian and Winfield wheeled out the door and onto the sidewalk. The morning sun lit the sidewalk with a warm glow and the group began their walk to the garden.

A Grand Sight: a calming bedtime and nap time story for children

A Grand Sight: a calming bedtime and nap time story for children

Caitie the Condor enjoys her morning. She decides to go for a gentle glide over a canyon, grateful for the grand sight below.
Hello everyone!  We hope you enjoyed our new story “Kitten Love” on Monday. Now, welcome to Favorite Friday! Sometimes we like to listen to our favorites again. Please enjoy “A Grand Sight,” and we’ll be back with a new story on Monday!Final 3 Dragon Breaths: 7:05

Narrator: Female

A Grand Sight Excerpt:

She stretched her wings as sunlight spilled into her cozy cave, warming the condor’s nest.  Now, it was time to soar!  And so, Caitie the condor smiled and climbed outside.  She spread her wings to catch the thermals, air rising up from the canyon floor. Those thermals helped carry Caitie up, up, up, so she could soar properly.  As Caitie’s giant wings extended to their full length, a majestic shadow drifted across the land, and the condor soared.  The finger-like feathers stretched out into the air, as the condor enjoyed the warmth of the sun on her back.

Today’s Meditation: Relax in the grass as you imagine sunlight warming you from head to toe.

Kitten Love: a relaxing bedtime story

Kitten Love: a relaxing bedtime story

Zara the cat carefully guides her adopted duckling, Dylan, to breakfast. She shows the duckling her most sincere kitten love throughout the day.

Final 3 Dragon Breaths: 7:20

Narrator: Male

Kitten Love Excerpt:

Sunlight spilled through the drapes right onto Zara the kitten’s bed. The little kitten stretched her paws out as far as she could. She purred, grateful for the warmth of the morning sun. As Zara purred, Dylan the duckling began to coo. Zara smiled and gently licked the fluffy yellow duckling’s head, grooming his feathers. Dylan hopped up and wobbled out of the cozy cat bed. Zara followed the duckling, grooming Dylan as he waddled away. Then the little kitten stopped grooming. Her little pink tongue stuck out of her mouth as she listened intently to sounds coming from the kitchen. Then Zara heard the little girl call, “Zara, breakfast!”

Today’s Meditation: Imagine floating on a cloud, and relax into the feeling of lightness.

Splashes and Smiles: a kids’ relaxation and story

Splashes and Smiles: a kids’ relaxation and story

Wade the inner tube splashes and smiles as he plays on the lazy river and even tries the water slide with a new friend. How will he like it?

Hello everyone!  We hope you enjoyed our new story “Pirate Queen” on Monday. Now, welcome to Favorite Friday! Sometimes we like to listen to our favorites again. Please enjoy “Splashes and Smiles and we’ll be back with a new story on Monday!

Final 3 Dragon Breaths: 11:06

Narrator: Male

Splashes and Smiles Excerpt:

Wade wondered what would happen next.  Then the boy carried the raft right over to the water slide.  And this is what Wade was most worried about.  Up, up, up, they went.  The worried raft noticed all the twists and bends in the slide.  As they waited in line Wade took a deep dragon breath in and out (deep breath) and told himself everything would be fine.  After all, he had worried about both waterfalls on the lazy river, and both were completely safe, and a bit fun.  He liked hearing the boy laugh, and judging from the look on the boy’s face this slide would make him laugh a lot.  As a result, the raft was feeling much better as he reached the top of the slide. Now He knew everything would be fine.  They would follow the rules, and have fun.

The boy set the raft down at the top of the slide, sat on top, and waited for the lifeguard to say it was OK to go.  Then the little boy held on tight. Wade slid from side to side, back and forth, splashing through the water on the slide.  With each turn the raft glided up the side of the slide, and then back down.  The boy was laughing now.  Finally, they reached the straight  part of the slide, slipping down into the water. Wade landed with a splash!  The boy laughed and laughed, and the raft smiled.  It had been fun.  There was nothing to worry about.

Today’s Meditation: We will guide you in a progressive relaxation from your head to your toes.

Pirate Queen: a kids’ mindful tale and relaxation

Pirate Queen: a kids’ mindful tale and relaxation

Today, Allie is a pirate queen. After a quick nap, she and her crew search the park for clues to find the buried treasure.

Final 3 Dragon Breaths: 7:54

Narrator: Female

Pirate Queen Excerpt:

Allie giggled as Owen approached, feeling excited for her game to begin. Owen had a magenta scarf tied on his head, looking very piratey. When he found Allie he smiled and said, “Arrrr, I got your message, your majesty, and wore me best.”

In response, Allie laughed, “You look great, me hearty!” From a distance, they heard a shout, “There be the Pirate Queen!” Helen had arrived. Her purple eye patch and scarf designated her as one of the crew. Andy ran up to Helen and added, “Arrr.” His red and white striped shirt and scarf shouted pirate to any onlookers.

“Now that my crew be here, let’s find some pirate treasure.” Allie said.

“Yeah!” Owen, Andy, and Helen shouted. Allie pulled a gold rock out from her pocket to show her fellow pirates. “This be what we’re looking for.”

“Where do we start, your majesty?” the crew asked.

The pirate queen grinned, and held up a piece of paper. “Here’s our first clue.” There was a drawing on it and some writing that no one could read.

“What does it say?” Helen asked.

Today’s Meditation: Feel your body fill with warmth and love as you send your loving energy to the world.
