Changing Winds: a kids’ relaxation and calming tale

Changing Winds: a kids’ relaxation and calming tale

During a relaxing sail Sandy the sailboat notices the changing winds. To keep her crew safe from the storm, she heads back to the harbor.

Final 3 Dragon Breaths: 9:31

Narrator: Male

Changing Winds Excerpt:

Sandy motored away from the harbor to a spot where she could put up her sails. The colorful stretches of fabric filled up with wind until they were stretched tight. Sandy could feel the wind moving her through the water and took a deep dragon breath, in and out (deep breath) relaxing in the peace of the morning. The wind carried the sailboat out and Sandy enjoyed gliding across the water. Sandy looked around. She loved to gaze at the deep turquoise blue water. Then the sailboat noticed the sky looked different. On one side, the sky was growing dark. On her other side it was very bright. Sandy knew immediately what was happening. A storm was on its way.

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

Sky Dragon: a mindful story for kids

Sky Dragon: a mindful story for kids

Dragon follows the friendly birds for a fun flight. Our sky dragon flies even higher and joins the air craft in their games.

Final 3 Dragon Breaths: 7:22
Narrator: Male
Sky Dragon Excerpt:

Above the trees Dragon admired the beautiful island and noticed something new down below. The construction crew had been busy, Dragon could tell. There was a bridge leading to another island. Dragon thought about exploring it, but before Dragon could head that direction a gentle rhythm filled the air. Dragon smiled, familiar with that beat, and turned to see Harmony helicopter. She was flying along with Hawk the red airplane. The two flew together with a similar grace and accuracy as Gerry and Carrie. Dragon waved hello and headed towards the aircraft. In no time the three friends reached each other and began dancing across the sky.

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

Buried Treasure: a soothing story and meditation for children

Buried Treasure: a soothing story and meditation for children

Allie gets ready for treasure hunt with her friends by hiding pirate clues around the park to lead them to the buried treasure.

Final 3 Dragon Breaths: 7:01

Narrator: Female

Buried Treasure Excerpt:

As soon as they got to the park Allie looked around, to see if anyone was already there. She wanted to be sure no one saw where she buried the treasure and set the clues. The swings were empty. No one was on the slide or the monkey bars. Even the ball fields were quiet.

There wasn’t a sign of Andy, Helen or Owen. Allie smiled mischievously. First, she would bury the pirate treasure chest. Allie skipped to the sand box and using the sand scooper she dug a hole big enough to fit the chest. Allie set the chest into the open pit and then removed five golden rocks. She gently moved the sand back to cover the top of the closed chest. Soon the sandbox looked as if the sands had never been moved.  Allie gently placed one of her golden rocks in the sand above the chest.

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

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

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!

Hello everyone!  We hope you enjoyed our new story, “Dragon’s Bus Ride”, Monday! Sometimes we like to listen to our favorites again. Welcome to Favorite Friday! Please enjoy “Merry Mermaid” and we’ll be back with a new story on Monday!Final 3 Dragon Breaths: 12:03

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.

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.

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.
