Wallaby Waltz: a calming meditation and story

Wallaby Waltz: a calming meditation and story

Willow Wallaby explores her surroundings, keeping her mother’s pouch nearby, as other friendly animals join her in a wallaby waltz.

Final 3 Dragon Breaths: 7:05

Narrator: Female

Wallaby Waltz Excerpt:

The wallabies enjoyed some fresh green grasses and some sweet and delicate flowers. With a full belly, Willow felt curiosity encouraging her to explore. A butterfly landed on her nose and then fluttered away. The little wallaby leapt about following the butterfly. As the colorful bug settled onto the high branch of a tree, the little wallaby noticed what seemed to be a couple of furry rocks rolling towards her. Alarmed she stomped her foot and quickly hopped back into her mother’s pouch. Willow mother chuckled and said, “It’s ok Willow. Meet Willie and Wylie Wombat.”

Today’s Meditation: Happiness and love flow through you in this meditation.

Soothing Sea: a calming meditation and story

Soothing Sea: a calming meditation and story

Two little sharks, Shayla and Santiago play in the soothing sea, diving down to the ocean floor from the surface, and returning to the warmth of the sunlit waters.

Final 3 Dragon Breaths: 7:38
Narrator: Male

Soothing Sea Excerpt:

After refreshing themselves with a quick dive under the water, the two friends popped back up to the surface to watch the sun finish its morning journey.

“What did you have planned for today?” Santiago shark asked Shayla after they dove back under the surface.

“Well, I thought I’d get a little exercise. I’ve been feeling a little sluggish and could use some extra energy.” Shayla replied.

“That’s a good idea! Can I join you?” Santiago asked.

Shayla smiled and said, “That’s sounds like fun.” The two sharks began to swim starting with slow graceful swings of their tails. Once they felt their bodies slip into a relaxed pattern, the two sharks gradually swam faster and faster. Laughing, suddenly Santiago dove down towards the ocean floor and Shayla followed him. The two sharks zipped along through the cool water. Today’s Meditation: Feel your muscles relax as you check in with your body from head to toe.

Seahorse Twins: a mindful story for kids

Seahorse Twins: a mindful story for kids

Sadie seahorse searches for a friend among the coral and the gentle waves. Finally, she finds one who is so similar they might be seahorse twins!

Hello everyone!  We hope you enjoyed our new story “Party on Board” this week. Now, welcome to Favorite Friday! Sometimes we like to listen to our favorites again. Please enjoy “Seahorse twins,” and we’ll be back with a new story on Monday!
Final 3 Dragon Breaths: 8:50

Narrator: Female

Seahorse Twins Excerpt:

Floating on the currents, Sadie watched for someone like her.  She drifted by a great big rock, and saw angelfish, sea anemones and clown fish.  They all said, “Hi Sadie!” She smiled, waved her delicate fin, and continued her search.  The currents moved Sadie on through a patch of seaweed.  The leaves swayed gently, back and forth, back and forth.  The little sea horse watched attentively as she drifted through, to find someone else like her.  She saw a crab, a clam, and a sea urchin.  “Hi Sadie!” They called as she drifted past.  Again, Sadie smiled and waved her delicate fin.  She did enjoy everyone’s company.  She just wanted to know if there was anyone else like her.  So the little seahorse continued on.

Today’s Meditation: Feel your muscles relax as you check in with your body from head to toe.

Party on Board: a calming meditation and story

Party on Board: a calming meditation and story

Five little fish explore the nighttime sea and find a sunken ship. Curious they check it out, surrounded by a blue glow. There’s a party on board!

Final 3 Dragon Breaths: 6:49

Narrator: Female

Party on Board Excerpt:

The five little fish swam away from their colorful coral beds. Fish One led the way through a maze of softly swaying plants. Curious to see who or what they would discover the five little fish peeked through the gentle leaves. In the distance, the fish noticed a shadowy shape resting on the ocean floor. The peaceful sea encouraged the fish to explore a little further. Fish Two volunteered to swim ahead and report back to the others. As Fish Two swam closer he realized the shadow was a sunken ship!

Fish Two eagerly swam back to the others, giggling and said, “It’s a ship! There will be lots for us to explore tonight!”

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

Dragon Castle: a bedtime meditation and story

Dragon Castle: a bedtime meditation and story

It’s time for a return visit to the beach. Dragon notices Paula Penguin needs a new home and makes her a dragon castle, with a little help from Benji the bucket.

Hello everyone!  We hope you enjoyed our new stories “Park Picnic” this week. Now, welcome to Favorite Friday! Sometimes we like to listen to our favorites again. Please enjoy “Dragon Castle,” and we’ll be back with a new story on Monday!
Final 3 Dragon Breaths: 7:13

Narrator: Female

Dragon Castle Excerpt:

Scanning the warm stretch of sand to see if anyone was there, the careful dragon landed.  Squishy warm sand hugged the dragon’s feet.  The dragon walked slowly, looking for Benji the bucket.  Noticing a bit of blue sticking out of the sand, the dragon hurried over and pulled Benji out.

“Oh good you’re back.”  The bucket said.  “I can show you how to make a sand castle.”

The dragon smiled wide and nodded.

“Ok, you need sand, water, and me.”  The bucket said smiling.   “Carry me over to the water.  We’ll get that first.”

Again the dragon nodded, and carried Benji down to the waves.  The water rolled in and out, splashing and tickling the dragon’s feet with sea foam.  The dragon dipped the bucket into the water and filled Benji to the brim.  He carried Benji to a cozy spot in the sun and poured the water onto the sand.

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

Snow Statues: a relaxing short story and meditation

Snow Statues: a relaxing short story and meditation

As the Sparkling Train completes its evening route the passengers notice snow statues all over the island. Where did they come from?

Final 3 Dragon Breaths: 8:28

Narrator: Female

Snow Statues Excerpt:

The Sparkling Train wondered what all the commotion was about and began to look more closely at the land around the tracks. At first all the train could see was little bumps on the surface of the snow. Maybe the snow blanket had rolled over some bushes? It was hard to see what had excited the passengers. The Train decided to slow down a little since it was running ahead of schedule. The train slowed its roll and looked out at the scenery. Up ahead in the park, the Train noticed more bumps on the smooth snow. Rolling closer and closer the Train could see more details now that it wasn’t zipping by. Amazed, the train realized that the little bumps were all snow statues.

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