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.
