I purchased this and the Bedtime Meditations for my kids who are 5 and 8, and they really enjoy it. I can see how it helps them wind down and we use in the car, really wound up, or when they're going to go to bed. The music and voice are calm and relaxing, and the kids have even started asking for it. I highly recommend the content for your children.
Things you should consider before downloading the Audible format.
- This is in a book format, so you can't put a single meditation in a iTunes playlist followed by other soothing music.
- The 8 chapters are not labeled, so you can't easily choose the meditation you want. You can't edit the chapter names to fix this.
- A meditation that has two chapters will have a gap of dead space with no sound between the chapters. The effect is the voice and music stop then start again. Very annoying.
- A little nit-picky, but the artwork that comes with the download is not what you see on the Audible site, it's a very low resolution picture of an older artwork. The text is illegible. You can't replace this.
Overall - great meditations. I wish I had found this earlier. To do it over again, I would buy the CD off of Amazon and not do the Audible Book download. I did purchase one of Cristiane's other CDs from Amazon and am much happier with that.
This is a great meditation! This is great for children it paints a great picture. However i'm not a child and i use it and can alway go back and think about it when i dont have my audible at hand and want to meditate.
Sweet, melodic, miraculous
Her accent and humour are charming and enchanting
My youngest wouldn't sleep... not for love or money but now with his request for "jellyfish" & just over 4 minutes, he is asleep and lets me leave...THANK YOU
I regularly play one selection from this recording every day at rest time in my combined K-1 grade class. While first graders believe they have graduated from Kindergarten nap time, all of the children enjoy the guided imagery of these stories. They are soothing, imaginative, and wholesome. We all benefit from 12 minutes of quiet, dreamy relaxation time.
Married, not quite 40 mom from the mid-west. I sit behind a computer all day translating large amounts of data into business solutions.
A a parent one to the greatest gifts we can give them are tools to deal with emotions and calm themselves. Christiane Kerr's story telling is an effective tool in helping my 4 year old son and 7 year old daughter wind down and pull themselves together - even during those times of hyper activity induced by over exhaustion.
I put this on my 7 year olds mp3 player. He was asleep within the first 25 minutes. It is very difficult for him to fall asleep because he is so active. I recommend this to anyone who has children with trouble falling asleep!
"Wonderful concept, imperfectly executed"
We feel that the host speaks much too quickly, and that the background music is too loud and fractious. In some places it actually feels stressful to listen to.
The guided meditation "stories" are absolutely beautiful - really "enchanted." The journeys are fun, simple and magical.My 4 year old listens every evening in bed and understands the journeys. I believe that they help him to feel calm.Plus, the conversations the meditations have sparked have given me some wonderful insights into my son's internal world.
We would love to have this narrated at a slower pace and with music that is calming and peaceful.
Thank you. More please! Bit slower please x
"GREAT FOR KIDS"
I got this for my daughter and son as they were having restless nights. What a great buy. My daughter is 7 and thoroughly enjoys it. She is a big reader and therefore finds it hard to switch off before falling asleep. this does the trick. i listened to it first and it has a calming effect even for adults! well worth the money.
"My children love this"
Great to calm busy little minds! My children listen to this before going to bed and it's a great alternative to a bedtime story when they're overly active.
