Soaring in the Sky: a relaxing meditation and kid’s story

Soaring in the Sky: a relaxing meditation and kid’s story

Hazen Hawk is soaring in the sky and watching what is happening below.  What will he see on the ground below before his nap?

Final 3 Dragon Breaths: 6:47
Dragon’s New Toy Story Excerpt:

Hazen stretched out his wings and flapped them strongly downward, lifting him off the branch.  The little hawk was off to see what he could see.  He flew up as high as he could.  White fluff gently surrounded him, and then the little hawk was through the clouds.  Above, Hazen could see and feel the bright warm sun.  He looked around at the brilliantly blue sky, and then turned his gaze downward.  Hazen saw the blanket of clouds stretch across the sky, though now there were some open spots where he could see the tiniest patch of earth.  He wondered if the Great Oak was in that sliver of sunlight.  Now warmed by the sun, Hazen decided he would fly a little lower so that he could see what was happening on the ground.

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

Dragon’s New Toy: a mindful children’s story

Dragon’s New Toy: a mindful children’s story

Dragon finds a beautiful rose garden and lays down to rest, snuggling with a cozy blanket. Will Dragon’s new toy help Dragon find a new friend?

Final 3 Dragon Breaths: 7:43
Dragon’s New Toy Story Excerpt:

Enjoying the soft floral fragrance, Dragon held the blanket up to its face and nuzzled it.  Feeling calm, happy, and secure Dragon hugged the blanket once again. Dragon realized someone loved this bright yellow blanket and was probably missing it.
Slowly, Dragon walked along.  The trees seemed to be pointing Dragon down a particular path. Slowly, and deliberately stepping to avoid the tree roots jutting out from the ground, Dragon walked along the twisting and turning path.  Up ahead, Dragon noticed a sunbeam had weaved through the tree canopy, lighting up the forest floor.  Reaching the sunbeam, Dragon stopped, closed its eyes, and enjoyed the warmth of the light on its skin.

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

Toadily Fun: a meditation and calming story

Toadily Fun: a meditation and calming story

Billy and Emily have a toadily fun time searching the woods for a mysterious sound, using their eyes and ears to discover the source. What will they find?

Final 3 Dragon Breaths: 8:25
Toadily Fun Story Excerpt:

Billy put a finger to his mouth, to let Emily know they needed to be quiet.  He could hear the trilling sound again.  “Do you hear that?”  Emily nodded. “That’s what we’re looking for.”  So Emily and Billy, walked quietly and carefully towards the sound.  Tiptoeing up to the forest, the sound grew louder and louder.   Soon, as trees surrounded Billy and Emily, the trilling stopped.  They looked around.  Plants with large heart shaped leaves covered the ground.  Billy and Emily looked at each other, puzzled.  They moved away from the trees and the trilled song began again.  Billy and Emily each stepped towards a tree.  The trilling continued.

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

Creative Cars: a mindful story and meditation for kids

Creative cars Bozz and Rozz make a new friend, Mozz. The toy cars share the story of how their friends, the blocks helped them get back on their track.

Final 3 Dragon Breaths: 8:44
Creative Cars Story Excerpt:

Now that they were relaxed Rozz began the story. “One day Bozz and I were feeling a bit curious and decided to explore beyond this table. We drove right up to the edge and peered over it.  A puppy dog pillow grinned up at us from the floor.
Knowing the pillow would give us a soft landing we decided to zip right off the table and onto the squishy pillow.”
Bozz added, “So, we launched off the table. The puppy pillow caught us easily. We giggled and giggled, excited by our big jump. Our gas tanks were sore from laughing as we sank into the big pillow and relaxed. Once we settled down Rozz said, ‘OK. let’s get back up to the table.’ I tried to roll forward, but the pillow was too soft. ‘Rozz do you see a way back up?’ I asked.

Final 3 dragon breaths start at 6:01
Curious Baby Whale Story Excerpt:

The little beluga whale swam up towards the surface and joined his pod again.  They swam as a group around icebergs and islands.  Beau tried to concentrate on where the pod was headed, but there was so much to see, hear, smell, and feel in the different waters.  Just then Beau heard a splash.  “What was that?” he thought.  A seal swam right above Beau.  The little whale couldn’t resist finding out what was happening and he headed up to the surface, popping his head out of the water to see.

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