165. All Done! A guided relaxation and calming story

The Construction Crew puts the finishing touches on the train tunnel. While she works Dizzy the concrete mixer rambles on and on. Will she notice how the others are feeling?

Narrator: Male

Final 3 Dragon Breaths: 6:54

All Done! Excerpt:

Ellie the excavator woke, ready to finish the tunnel project. She carefully opened her eyes,expecting sunshine to spill into her cozy garage. Instead, Ellie heard a voice drifting through the walls. It sounded like Dizzy the concrete mixer. The talking had woken her up just ahead of the sunlight. The little excavator rumbled out of her garage, curious to see what was happening. Dizzy was busy talking to Danny, the dump truck. Ellie could see she was really excited about something. Dizzy was busy explaining to Danny why it was important that she kept the concrete spinning. She rumbled around the yard following Danny wherever he went. “I like to keep the concrete moving at a nice steady pace…” the two trucks rumbled away. Ellie decided she should probably check on them later, Danny looked a little annoyed. Ronald the roller rolled over to the little excavator.

 

“Where are they going?” he asked as he watched Dizzy following the little dump truck.

 

“I think Dizzy is explaining concrete to Danny.” Ellie answered.

 

“Oh no. Not again.” Ronald said. “She really gets stuck, around and around she goes, explaining the same thing over and over.”

 

“Oh dear. Danny isn’t nearly as patient as you Ronald. This may be a problem.”

435. First Snowfall: a mindful bedtime story

435. First Snowfall: a mindful bedtime story

Owen enjoys the first snowfall of the season by going sledding with a new friend.

Narrator: Female

Final 3 Dragon Breaths: 9:15

First Snowfall Excerpt:

According to the calendar, the first official day of winter wouldn’t come for another month, but to Owen, it seemed that winter had definitely arrived in his neighborhood! Overnight, the first snow of the season had fallen all across Ahway Island, covering the neighborhoods, forests, and beaches with a thick blanket of snow.

Fluffy white flakes piled on top of each other on the window sill as Owen gazed outside. He watched, entranced, as more and more flakes slowly floated down to the ground, covering the snow that had fallen overnight with ever-thickening sheets across the front lawn. Owen smiled. He had always loved falling snow, and the first snow of the year was always a particularly joyous event. He knew that when he went outside, he would experience that special, quiet hush unique to a world covered with freshly fallen snow.

Owen watched for a few more minutes, just quietly enjoying the sight. The peaceful beauty of a snowy world was one of his favorite things and he just wanted to watch silently for a little while. But after a couple minutes, a thought occurred to Owen. The snow was probably thick enough for sledding!

Gazing through the window, Owen looked down the block to see the hill at the end of his street. All the children in the neighborhood called the hill “the sledding hill,” no matter what time of the year it was. Today, the hill stood tall and white and ready for some the season’s first sledding tracks!

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

422. Putt-Putt Fun: a calming meditation and story

Mia and Max play a fun game of miniature golf with their parents.

Narrator: Female

Final 3 Dragon Breaths: 7:32

Putt-Putt Fun Excerpt:

“Dad, what are we going to do today?” asked Mia.

“Today we’re going to play miniature golf,” replied Dad.

“Oh wow, cool!” exclaimed Max.

“Miniature golf? What’s that?” asked Mia.

“Mini golf is like grownup golf, but it’s better for kids and it’s more fun,” said Max. “You get a golf ball and a golf stick…”

“…a putter,” said Mom, smiling.

“…a putter,” continued Max, “and then instead of hitting the golf ball into holes in the grass like in a regular golf game, you hit the ball into holes next to cute little buildings and castles and stuff. Some people call it Putt-Putt golf. Maybe because of the putter.”

“Wow,” said Mia, “I want to play Putt Putt!”

Today’s Meditation: Today, notice loving energy flowing through your body, from your feet up to your head.
