148. Penguin Games: a calming story and meditation

Dragon joins in the penguin games with Princely. Having lots of fun sliding across the ice, will Dragon end up in the water?

Hello everyone!  We hope you enjoyed our new story this week. Now, welcome to Favorite Friday! Sometimes we like to listen to our favorites again. Please enjoy “Penguin Games” and we’ll be back with a new story on Monday!

Narrator: Female

Penguin Games Excerpt:

The dragon flew back to the land of ice and snow, for another visit with Princely the Penguin and Beau the Beluga Whale. The dragon paid close attention to the gorgeous landscape, now knowing the way. Everything was white, with a little bit of blue in the ice and sea. Stars twinkled in the sky and the moonlight caused the snow to sparkle like diamonds.

The dragon landed in the soft snow and began searching for Princely and Beau. Then Princely slid up and over a drift, on his belly. He spun in a circle and popped up at the dragon’s feet.

The penguin smiled and asked, “Wanna try?”

It did look like a lot of fun. The dragon heard a splash, turned, and saw the little whale smiling from the surface of the sea.

“Go ahead! You’ll like it,” Beau encouraged the dragon. “I’ll have fun watching.”

The dragon nodded at Princely with a smile.

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