Best Balance: a guided meditation and kid’s story

Best Balance: a guided meditation and kid’s story

Sig the skateboard has the best balance, and waits eagerly to play. But today the skateboard is playing with a new learner. How will they do?

Final 3 Dragon Breaths: 8:00

Narrator: Female

Best Balance Excerpt:

Sig giggled too, ready to play. The girl placed the skateboard on the ground and stepped on, one foot on a yellow-green swirl and the other on a blue-purple one. Sig wobbled back and forth, as the girl balanced herself. Sig began to feel nervous, worrying that the girl might fall off. The skateboard tried her best to hold steady, but as the girl wobbled, so did Sig. Then after one big wobble the girl stumbled off of the skateboard. Sig took a deep dragon breath in and out, (deep breath) as she saw that the girl was ok. The girl took a deep dragon breath in and out, (deep breath) as she readied herself to try the skateboard again.

Merry Mermaid: a kids’ meditation and story

It’s a hot day, perfect for playing in the pool. And that is exactly what Lisa’s mom has planned. Lisa gets ready for a fun afternoon in her favorite mermaid suit. Listen in to hear how our merry mermaid spent the day!

Narrator: Female

Merry Mermaid Excerpt:

Lisa and her mom patiently waited in the line.  Moving slowly and steadily forward, Finally, they reached the front. Lisa and her mom were on their way in!  Now, they just needed to find a place to set the beach bag and their stuff.  Lisa’s mom looked around and spotted an open area, with a giant umbrella for shade.  She held Lisa’s hand, and began to make her way there.

As they weaved through the crowd, Lisa was bumped and jostled a little bit.  Sometimes, people said, “Oh, excuse me!” and sometimes they didn’t seem to know they had bumped into her.
Although she was a little uncomfortable, Lisa understood that it was just that crowded.  When Lisa and her mom reached the spot in the shade, Lisa took a deep dragon breath in and out (deep breath).  She felt better now that she had more space.  Just then another girl, and her mom, squeezed through the crowd to reach the shady spot.
“Hi, I’m Lydia.”  The girl said.
“I’m Lisa.” Lisa replied.
Lydia said, “I like your swimsuit.  You look like a mermaid.”
“Thanks!” Lisa said. “I like yours too! Purple is one of my favorite colors!” It looked like she would definitely make a new friend today.

Dragon’s Bus Ride Excerpt:

Then, Dragon noticed Owen, Andy, and Allie waiting on the street. They were laughing and smiling. Spotting Dragon, they waved. Smiled and waving back Dragon felt relieved to find them. Dragon wondered why the kids were standing at the corner holding bags. Dragon decided to travel a little further from the forest to find out what was happening. After all, things had been going pretty well and Dragon was feeling more confident. As Dragon began to walk over to Allie, Owen, and Andy a bright yellow bus drove up. The bus stopped right in front of them and held out a stop sign, so Dragon stopped. Dragon could see James and Julia already sitting on the bus along with Ian, Mike, Rogelio, Helen, Brianna, Luis, Lydia, Alice, Anora, Max and Mia. As Dragon watched Andy, Allie, and Owen boarded the bus.

Buzzy Bugs: a mindful bedtime story

Buzzy Bugs: a mindful bedtime story

The air is filled with the song of buzzy bugs. Simon cicada wakes up from his nap, climbs out of his shell and searches for a friend.

Hello everyone!  We hope you enjoyed our new story, “Dock Dog”, Monday! Sometimes we like to listen to our favorites again. Welcome to Favorite Friday! Please enjoy “Buzzy Bugs” and we’ll be back with a new story on Monday!

Final 3 Dragon Breaths: 7:35

Narrator: Male

Buzzy Bugs Excerpt:

Light streamed onto Simon’s face as he broke through the surface.  The little Cicada blinked, to get accustomed to the brightness.  As Simon pulled himself out of the earth, his body began to feel tight and tough.  He shook off the dirt, and looked around. He saw bright green grass, and a thick, sturdy tree trunk.  The little Cicada had emerged right next to a tree.  Simon decided to climb it, and see what else was around him. Slowly, Simon pulled himself up the trunk of the tree.  His body felt tighter and tighter.  Simon had grown a lot while resting in the dirt!  He needed to leave his armor behind.  So the little Cicada anchored himself on the trunk, and began to squeeze out of his shell.

Simon blinked again, as his fresh eyes saw the details of the flaky bark on the trunk.  The little cicada was curious to see how much he had changed, as he relaxed in the earth.  Simon looked at his body.  He had delicate wings on his back, and was now a bright green instead of the brownish color he had been before.  Next to him, his armor was hanging on to the trunk of the tree.  It was a little weird to see the mold of his old body, just hanging there.  He fluttered his wings a bit to dry them off, and then stretched them.  As soon as his wings were dry, Simon left the trunk to find a nice branch to rest on and watch the world.

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

Dock Dog: a kids’ guided relaxation and calming story

Dock Dog: a kids’ guided relaxation and calming story

It’s an incredible day on the sea! Darcy the dock dog asks for her life jacket. She wants to be ready to go for a boat ride. Will she get one?

Hello everyone!  Ok, Dog lovers today is National Dog Day, and as promised, our new story, “Dock Dog”, celebrates another one of our furry friends. Enjoy!

Final 3 Dragon Breaths: 6:24
Narrator: Male

Dock Dog Excerpt:

Then Darcy hurried over to her home.  Nudging her person she pointed to her life jacket. The lovable fluffy dog knew she needed her life jacket to go for a boat ride and she wanted to be prepared. The person laughed and said. “Is it a good day for a boat ride, Darcy? You’re right, you need your life jacket.”

Darcy’s person helped her into the bright orange foam and snapped the latch closed. The jacket hugged the fluffy dog snuggly around her back and belly. She even had a handle on her back, so people could help Darcy get on the boat, if she slipped into the water.  With her life jacket on, Darcy was ready for a boat ride.

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

A Curious Sail: a meditation and story for bedtime

A Curious Sail: a meditation and story for bedtime

Today Sandy the sailboat has a curious sail. There are some triangular objects out on the sea. Listen to find out what Sandy has discovered.

Hello everyone!  We hope you enjoyed our new story, “Purchase Power”, Monday! Sometimes we like to listen to our favorites again. Welcome to Favorite Friday! Please enjoy “A Curious Sail” and we’ll be back with a new story on Monday!

Final 3 Dragon Breaths: 8:10

Narrator: Female

A Curious Sail Excerpt:

Soon she was out on the lake, and the skipper quickly pulled one sail up, then another.  Colors fluttered in the breeze as her sails were secured.  Sunshine lit Sandy’s sails, showing off their brilliance.  One sail was bright white with a sea green stripe lining the edges, and the other sail had alternating stripes of blue and sea green.  Sandy loved having that sail up.  As the skipper raised each sail, the wind filled it, and gently pushed Sandy along the surface of the water.

Up ahead, Sandy could see something, but didn’t know what it was.  There were little triangles, floating on the water.  Sandy hoped the captain would steer her towards them.  She was keeping her eye on the objects, when she felt herself turn. The captain was steering her in a different direction.  Sandy was disappointed.  She had hoped to find out what the objects were.  As the sailboat turned, the breeze whispered away. Sandy’s sails fluttered, and she coasted slowly.  The captain turned her rudder, back and forth, until the breeze filled her colorful sails again.  The breeze gently pushed Sandy forward and the little sailboat smiled.  She was headed back towards the triangular objects!  Now she could see colors in the distance. Red, orange, yellow, green, blue, and purple floated on the water ahead of her.

Today’s Meditation: Imagine floating in a tranquil pool, safe and relaxed, as the water rocks you gently.
