I am a clinical psychologist working with children, adolescents, and adults. I have found the Indigo Dreams relaxation cd series very helpful for my patients. I want to be able to provide them with copies of the relaxation cds. Indigo Dreams Adult Relaxation, Indigo Teen Dreams, and Indigo Ocean Dreams are favorites of my patients. Thank you for producing such beneficial materials. R Morris, Ph.D. "I have purchased the Indigo Dreams for Teens I have three children ages ranging from 11 to 16 yrs old. They love to listen to the CD's. They especially find it very helpful during exams and also very useful when dealing with peer pressure in school. It gives them tools they can use to deal with the situation at hand in a positive constructive manner which aids in their self esteem. I would highly recommend them to all parents and children/Teenagers." -- A. Angel (Miami, FL. USA) Endorsements See what people are saying about our Audio CDs: * Indigo Dreams * Indigo Ocean Dreams * Indigo Dreams: Garden of Wellness * Indigo Teen Dreams * Indigo Dreams: Adult Relaxation * Stress Awareness Curriculum Indigo Dreams "The belly breathing, affirmations, relaxation get my kids calm! The four stories are just the right length to keep their attention and get them to do actual stress management techniques." -- Thomas (New York) "My child, diagnosed with Asperger's Syndrome, has always had difficulty falling asleep despite all the bedtime rituals we would follow. His mind would just stay so busy when he was supposed to be relaxing and falling asleep. The Indigo Dreams CD and companion books have been a great help. He is able to concentrate on his breathing and relaxing his mind and body. He falls asleep much more readily. The CD is beautifully narrated and he really enjoys the music too. This is definitely a help for stressed out parents." -- Ruth Burns (PA, USA) "This is a great relaxation CD. I purchased it for my 9 year old son, who is having problems with night terrors and anxiety in general. Since we have started listening to it to go to sleep, the night terrors have significantly decreased and he seems more relaxed overall. I highly recommend this CD -- it is a great way to teach children how to relax." -- Reviewer (Austin, Texas) "I never take time to do these reviews as I am too busy. But this one deserves my time. My son (5) is a bit on the anxious side due to some surgeries, a very active mind/tense body, and quite simply due to his personality. I have tried to teach him breathing techniques and a small amount of meditation- he didn't really learn them all that well. However he LOVES both the Indigo Dreams cds for kids and learned the breathing techniques immediately. He won't go to sleep without them now. He associates it with relaxation and sleep so all I have to do is turn on the cd player and he immediately closes his eyes and gets down to the business of relaxing towards sleep. The woman's voice is so soothing. It's wonderful. I love to listen to it too. The pace is perfect also. Thank you so much for these cds!" -- S.C."Sam" (Austin, TX) "My two boys, ages 7 and 8 love listening to it the Indigo Dreams CD and play it every night as they go to sleep. They seem to recognize that it helps them. In fact, if we continue to talk after I have started the CD, they ask me to start it over so they can hear it from the beginning. The boys have been through a painful divorce, their father's immediate remarriage, and are now living in two extremely different and antagonistic households - switching back and forth every other week. The older of the two boys used to lay awake for an hour or two after bedtime but now goes to sleep quickly and easily. The younger used to be plagued by nightmares but those too have all but disappeared. Although I didn't realize it at the time, buying this CD was a gift of simple, peaceful comfort for my boys - helping them to cope in a world that has gotten too complex for adults much less children." -- EJS (Northern Arizona) "My son has a behavior problem, your CD INDIGO DREAMS, has saved his life. He has calmness about himself NOW. If we have a stressful day, I ask him to close his eyes, and tell me some affirmations and within 5minutes he has calmed down, THANKS AGAIN FOR YOUR WONDERFUL WORK!!!" -- Nancy Yann & Travis W. (Shelbyville, Indiana) "I bought this CD to wind down my 3 yr old at naptime/bedtime (she is very active and hyper). The first time we listened to it, she was asleep by the time the second story was being read. It also works wonders for me when I have trouble falling asleep. I would also recommend this for women in labor. At my Lamaze class, we learned the relaxation technique through story telling and this is a perfect example (Esp. the Goodnight Caterpillar). My teacher read us a story imagining that our arms, legs, etc. were heavy and that they needed to be relaxed. This is just what this story does. It also teaches breathing techniques and helps you to visualize surroundings other than a stressful hospital room." --Reviewer (New Iberia, Louisiana) "Great CD! Belly Breathing, affirmations, relaxation get my kids relaxing! The four stories are just the right length to keep their attention and get them to do the techniques. The author never tells the children what to do or that they are learning a technique. The kids just follow the story and get it. Also love the Yoga Posters for children by Lite and Each Breath a Smile." -- S K. Annel (New York) "I just wanted to share with you a big thank you for your wonderful Indigo Dreams cd. I started using your cd with my 4 year old son when he was 3. Like most children, he would have trouble sleeping at night and this cd would gently send him off to sleep. He particularly enjoys "The Boy and the Turtle" and often tells me that the little boy is him. Your cd has brought both him and me many nights of blissful sleep and I have shared the experience with many other parents." -- Paula (Australia) "I'm a parent looking for stress management for my tightly-wound little boy, a grownup still learning to manage my own stress, and an early childhood teacher hoping to help my students learn to relax themselves. These are excellent tools. I'm most grateful to Lori Lite. Highly recommended!" -- Jane P. (Canada) "I just wanted to let you know that the CD and books have worked like a charm. I don't think my son has ever heard the end of the CD because he's fast asleep before it's done!! On the few occasions that I have laid with him to listen to the CD I've fallen asleep myself! I love the stories, what a magnificent calming effect they have! Have you got any other different CD's available?" -- Diane (Canada) "Thank you for all your help. I did manage to get the Indigo Dreams CD at a Store here in Winnipeg. My son has listened to it for 2 nights and I think it is making a difference in helping him to relax to go to sleep. I know the first time I listened to it I was relaxed. I am now going to order the Indigo Ocean Dreams through this same store. Thank you again for all your help." -- Brenda (Winnipeg, Canada) "I would like to thank you for the indigo dreams CD. I have foster Children with special needs and had been looking for a way to teach them how to be okay with themselves, relax and deal with their feelings in a positive manner. I had bought a couple of books and nothing seemed to be what I wanted. On a shopping trip to Minneapolis we were in a store, and my friend found your CD. I thought it was a good idea. Little did I know it was EXACTLY what I was looking for? Not only do I love the CD, but so do my children. I notice that there anger and acting out has significantly decreased since using your CD. The thing that I love the most about it is that it is short enough for them not to be able to do it, but long enough for them to receive the benefit of meditation. There favorite time is when it is there turn to pick which story we do that night. (If you ever think of doing another one, I would love to see one that takes that next step in teaching them to be able to calm themselves when they are having feelings and not get themselves in trouble. Again I want to thank you so much for your work, and such a wonderful CD." -- Betty B. (Superior, WI) "Wow! I have recently purchased the Indigo Dreams Cd and was very pleased with its' content! I plan on using it with my own children and also at work with my group." -- Claire (Canada) "We LOVE the CD and have listened to it every night since we bought it. This CD has changed bedtime to a rewarding experience, rather than just a daily routine. I want another." -- Andrea (USA) "My wife and I were searching for a long time for something to help my daughter with bedtime and this is the answer. Even if she happens to wake up in the middle of the night, she'll just put the CD on again and it really relaxes her. We already ordered Lori Lite's other CD "Indigo Ocean Dreams" to be able to add variety, and we all can't wait for that CD to arrive! By the way, my son who is 11 also loves this CD (and to be honest it has put my wife and I to sleep when we've had it on). Thanks to Lori Lite for helping out all the parents out there who were looking for a way to help their children with what can be a very anxious time for many kids. I can't recommend this enough; the stories are fabulous and are read by the author who has a perfect, soothing and calming voice. The music is very soothing and meditative as well and compliments everything beautifully!" -- Yoga Dad "I purchased this CD for my kids (ages 9 & 6) about a year ago. They love it and so do I. At first they were both a little giggly at it but then after a night or two they were asking for it and it began to be part of our nighttime ritual. I love it as well and have found it to be very relaxing myself. I have some of my own relaxation CD's that I listen to and this CD uses the same methods for relaxation but in a kid friendly way! It's just great. I'm looking for another one for some variety." -- Happy Mom (Northeast) top of page Indigo Ocean Dreams My neighbor's 10 yr old daughter is very anxious. I suggested Indigo Ocean Dreams cd a while ago but her mother didn't buy it. Finally after they had yet another sleepless night due to some bad night terrors and were exhausted, I walked down and physically handed one of our cds to them so they would try it. She said her daughter loves them and zonks right out. I never did hear if they have "cured" her of the night terrors and anxiety but I do know they bought their own copies the next day! -- S.C."Sam" (Austin TX) My 7 year old daughter was having an extremely hard time dealing with the stress in her life and having significant behavior problems. This CD has taught her ways to tune into her body and relieve some stress through deep breathing, relaxation techniques, and affirmations. There is not a night since we got it that she doesn't sleep with it playing. Most of the behavior issues have now resolved. Now she chooses what story she wants to hear and quickly drifts off to sleep. She used to have frequent nightmares and they are gone! This is an absolute MUST TRY!!! -- Christina Winstead (Nashville, NC) I bought all 3 of the Indigo Dreams CDs for children/teens. I have 2 daughters who deal with anxiety. My youngest anxiety was so severe that she ended up in ER with a panic attack, which increased her anxiety even more - it was a horrible cycle. In searching for techniques to help her, I found this CD series. It has been a godsend. She quickly downloaded both of the "non teen" CDs to her iPod, allowing her to take the relaxation "on the road" and to choose her favorites from both CDs. She's been using these for almost a month and now her bedtime is so peaceful and easy - no longer does she stew and fret and end up being awake for hours. She is always asleep within minutes. My eldest daughter likes her teen CD as well, though she declared it was "stupid" before she listened to it. Now she has it on every night. These are great, great products! -- Sfshaza (San Francisco, CA) This is a great CD for all kids. The man's voice is so wonderful and the background music is beautiful. The stories are great because most kids love animals. I highly recommend it for those with more spirited children as well. Use the Angry Octopus when the feelings are strong and it really helps. We use it at night before bed. I have recommended to many others and you should get it. -- Gregg J. (Chestnut, IL, USA) I have three "spirited" children. I have almost all of the Indigo products - books and CDs. My kids listen to them every night to fall asleep. We also use the CDs in the middle of the day to refocus during our "quiet and slow" time. One of our kids loves to be read. If we are having a particularly "spirited" day we will read her an indigo book. I also use the Adult CD for myself or with my kids as a family relaxation. -- J. Jones (WI, USA) Indigo Ocean Dreams has been an important tool in teaching my eight year old affirmations. If you believe that your thoughts become your reality, you know that it's never too early to tell yourself how special you are! I am a Montessori teacher and I use the techniques and stories with the children. The CD has brought the children an interesting self-awareness. I am very happy with both Indigo Ocean Dreams and Indigo Dreams. -- C. Smith (Surprise, Arizona) I am a full time social worker, and I have found this "series" very helpful as a clinician. Furthermore, the package was delivered very quickly. I would highly recommend this seller. -- L. Littman (New York) I have an eight year old daughter with serious anxiety problems. I bought this CD because my daughter's therapist recommended getting a relaxation CD to listen to. I searched for a Children's version and found this one. My daughter loves it! It helps her to go to sleep. It helps her feel better when she is having a bad day. It helps calm her when she is mad or scared. She is using the techniques on her own when she is unable to listen to the CD or when she needs a quick calming down. It is very kid friendly, and teaches them, in an indirect way, how to calm themselves on their own. At the end of the stories, there is a quieting audio track that is just music and sounds that she really enjoys. I would highly recommend this product for anyone who is looking to teach their child self calming techniques. It is awesome! -- Elizabeth H. (IL, USA) Both CD's are a wonderful experience for a child as well as an adult. My six year old loves listening to them at bedtime with her father. They are a great way to teach your child self awareness, assist them in focusing and visualization as well as relaxation. A must for anyone with children! -- V. Lagoudis (New York) My 8 year old son & I really enjoyed the CD & its visualization exercises. We will definitely be using this in addition to his Occupational Therapy that he receives. I have been able to share it with other as well!! Great audio quality & value! -- Sandra M. Armstrong (Lake Elsinore, California, United States) I have bought this Cd for my two girls. My youngest one was having troubles sleeping. I bought this CD and Indigo Dreams and we love it. I have fallen asleep with them in their beds while listening to it. Thank you for creating such CD's especially for them! -- C. Chase (Rio Rancho, NM. USA) I love this CD! I purchased both the Indigo Dreams as well as the Indigo Ocean Dreams together and we absolutely love both of them! My children (3 boys in the same room) ask for the cd every night. We even will listen to them together just before bedtime on the couch for some down time. They love to lay still with their blankets and I watch their tummies go up and down as they automatically follow the breathing pattern within the stories. The music and voice of the reader are very soothing and within 2 stories my kids are asleep! I love the messages that are being told within the stories - they teach how to relax, have confidence and help relieve the stress of the day. I am so, so happy I have found these cd's! I would recommend them to EVERYONE! -- J Peterson (Macomb, MI. USA) I've ordered and listened to both your Indigo CDs with my 6 1/2 year old daughter and they're fantastic. I am also recommending them to my clients. I am considering purchasing the curriculum and using it to educate children in the area on stress management and relaxation very exciting and much needed. I would promote Lori Lite's resources through the group to the parents. -- Renee P I have received the Cd and my kids love it! It is really helping my son Daniel (nearly 8) deal with expressing emotions and my daughter Emily (just 6) loves anything to do with dolphins and water so she is in meditation heaven. My niece has it at the moment to pass her opinion (she's 7 years old and indigo through and through!) -- Carmel (Australia) The Indigo Dreams series is exceptional: The writing is delightful, the narration gentle and soothing, the music is dreamy and non-intrusive, and the relaxation techniques effective (even on a kid in her 5th decade of life!) Because I create guided meditation CDs for adults, I am extremely familiar with what is in the marketplace. More often than not I'm disappointed, but I'm happy to say that Indigo Ocean Dreams delighted me. Not only does this CD help the listener to relax, it gently addresses some of the issues that can cause stress (anger, anxiety, poor self esteem, etc.), helping kids to find constructive ways to have more calm in their waking life as well. I'm looking forward to the next CD! -- Kerstin. A. (San Francisco, CA. USA) My kids have been waiting "impatiently" for this CD to arrive in the mail and said it was worth the wait. Lori Lite hit another home run with her second CD Indigo Ocean Dreams. My 11 year old had experienced an increase in anger towards the end of his school year. My 9 year old is dealing with fear and anxiety due to a recent challenging family event. The first night of listening was a great experience for my daughter. She learned new self-calming techniques and was walking around the house the next day practicing her sea otter breathing (belly breathing). (She did this with the first CD "Indigo Dreams" where she did her "Boy and a Bear" breathing.) My son learned how to release his anger and loved the Angry Octopus story. I listened to the CD after both kids were asleep and I was amazed at how relaxed I as an adult felt. I felt calm, peaceful and happy. I actually can not remember when I fell asleep. I just know that I had the best sleep I've had in months. My life is so challenging now with all these recent changes that I will do anything to keep my kids healthy. The techniques of breathing, affirmations, muscle relaxation and visualizations presented in these stories are working for my kids. These two CDs "Indigo Dreams" and "Indigo Ocean Dreams" have been such a blessing in my recent life that I had to share this with the world. -- Jacques (Montreal, Canada) I have in the past tried to show my kids some of these same techniques (deep breathing and meditation) but it was hard for me to put it in a way that would be meaningful to them at their age. These CD's were the answer. They are written and produced with children in mind. Lori Lite's idea of using stories is a brilliant way of making these techniques appealing to children! If you are already familiar with Lori Lite's work you certainly won't be disappointed with this new CD. If you are presently unfamiliar with her work but are looking for a wonderful way to introduce your children to deep breathing, affirmations and relaxation techniques, this CD and the first Indigo Dreams CD is sure to be a welcome guest in your home! Also, for those whose children are in their teens, Lori Lite just released a new CD called Indigo Teen Dreams. If you like the approach of Indigo Ocean Dreams or the First Indigo Dreams CD but wanted something more suitable for a teen, then you will probably love this new addition to Lori Lite's work. -- Yoga Dad (Tennessee) top of page Indigo Dreams: Garden of Wellness The stories in this CD have helped my children cope with the many issues they are facing. Caterpillar Choices has been a wonderful tool in helping my daughter make healthier food choices. She loves the affirmations that are designed to help her self-esteem and support her decision to eat healthier. My sensitive child gets her feelings hurt easily by the kids on the bus and at school. The Perfect Club story is one she connects with. She loves listening to the story and then uses one of the practice sessions to actually get rid of her hurt or angry feelings. I have personally used the techniques and we are all feeling better. The narration is upbeat, positive, encouraging and relaxing all at the same time. My third child loves the music and downloaded it to his i-pod to listen to in the evening. All in all we have used and love all of the CDs in this collection. I would like to thank Lori Lite for thinking of our children and the issues they face in today's society. -- Monika (Kentucky) My children enjoy the new stories on Indigo Dreams Garden Of Wellness. The stories encourage them to make healthy food choices, accept others and deal with hurt or angry feelings. The practice sessions, (which are different than the other Cds) are VERY effective and the music is equally soothing. They are already asking for specific tracks for specific feelings. -- Thomas (New York) We love Indigo Dreams: Garden of Wellness! This is the 3rd CD we've purchase in the series and it's just as good as the original Indigo Dreams and Indigo Ocean Dreams. My nearly 5 year old daughter has rest time every day when she can listen to something of her choice, and she's picked Garden of Wellness every day since we received it a week ago. The whole series of CDs are so positive and soothing for her. She focuses on the stories and we discuss them after they're done. She can relate to the characters, and the positive messages about eating and self-esteem are simple and straightforward enough to resonate with her. They are a great way to help kids relax and get some much-needed down time during the day without having to turn on the TV. I plan on using the Indigo Dreams CDs with my 2 year old daughter as well, when she begins to grow out of her naps. The CDs have been a great way to extend the "rest time" habit with our older daughter. -- M. Vacanti (Denver CO) I was originally introduced to Lori Lite's work when searching for something to help my then 8 year old daughter deal with anxiety and difficulty sleeping. After much searching I ordered her original "Indigo Dreams" CD and it was miraculously effective! We then ordered "Indigo Ocean Dreams" which had the same result. In fact both of those programs were so effective for her that when it became available, we gave my 12 year old son "Indigo Teen Dreams" to help him relax into sleep. Now we're fortunate enough to have another offering from Lori Lite, Indigo Dreams: Garden of Wellness. In fact my daughter, who is now almost 10, listened to it last night for the first time and gave me the biggest smile this morning when I asked how she liked it! This CD deals with issues that all kids have to deal with in some fashion. It deals with making good food choices, being able to deal with bullying/exclusion from the "in" group as well as other situations that can be stressful. I think it's wonderful that this program starts with a story dealing with food choices because it really helps children become aware of how their choices affect the way they feel. People often think of food choice as being tied only to obesity, but in fact anxiety and other emotions can be triggered by what we put into our bodies. In this and other tracks children learn to use affirmations and other techniques that will empower them to deal with various situations. Those techniques along with affirmations help children become empowered internally which is the greatest thing they can learn. To me, this sense of empowerment can lead to a tremendous increase in the quality of one's inner life which can only lead to increasing the quality of one's outer life. Lori Lite helps children plant the seed to this inner life which is the greatest gift children can receive. Highly recommended! -- Yoga Dad top of page Indigo Teen Dreams "I have purchased the Indigo Dreams for Teens I have three children ages ranging from 11 to 16 yrs old. They love to listen to the CD's. They especially find it very helpful during exams and also very useful when dealing with peer pressure in school. It gives them tools they can use to deal with the situation at hand in a positive constructive manner which aids in their self esteem. I would highly recommend them to all parents and children/Teenagers." -- A. Angel (Miami, FL. USA) "The quality and content of this CD was no surprise. We own the one for children and loved it. This CD has proven itself as well. The CD is a wonderful evening or bedtime tool to slow oneself down, to relax, to de-stress. The quality of my sleep is much improved and my heart rate has slowed down considerably which can only improve my overall health as well! This family owns several of the Indigo Dreams products and every one is a wonderful tool. As you can tell, I recommend all Indigo Dreams products highly! -- E. Hanna (Plainfield, IL) "My nephew listened to one track on Indigo Teen Dreams. It was his first experience with visualizing. I will never forget the look on his face when he opened his eyes. He said: and I quote "I have never felt anything like that in my entire life!" -- Monika (KY, USA) "I am a senior in High School and was getting really stressed out dealing with keeping my grades up, working part time, studying and taking my SAT's. Now I am applying for college and I have not been able to eat or sleep much. My mom gave me Indigo Teen Dreams to check out one night when I was having trouble falling asleep. At first I didn't want to listen, but after another hour of tossing and turning I turned it on. All I remembered in the morning is that I fell asleep. I think any teen dealing with H.S. would enjoy this CD. The teachers should try it too." -- K. (Annell, NY. USA) "I have the Indigo Dreams CD which I use in my psychotherapy practice with younger children. Many of them really enjoy the stories and have been helped with calming for bedtime. However I was excited to try using the Indigo Teen Dreams with some of my younger kids who really needed to know how to specifically practice the Relaxation techniques in order to apply them to other times of increased stress. I have been working with two bright 8 year old girls that have loved adding this CD to their options when feeling stressed or having difficulty sleeping." THANKS!! -- J. Logston (Naperville, IL) "I recently purchased an Indigo Dreams Teens relaxation tape for my 14 year old daughter. She has always had problems settling at night time and often felt frustrated and angry. When I saw your CD I thought it would be an ideal way to help her to relax and to learn to deal with her feelings. Well it certainly did the trick and she sleeps really well now and I have noticed that she seems more confident and generally is a much calmer teenager. I would certainly recommend it to others to buy." -- J McMcMillan (S Yorkshire, UK) "As a parent, I would give this CD 10 stars because I think it is so valuable! Lori Lite, the creator of Indigo Dreams and Indigo Ocean Dreams (as well as many other wonderful tools for children) has now created a real gift for teens. This Indigo Teen Dreams CD is a wonderful resource to help teenagers learn to empower themselves by learning how to connect with their inner being and strength, as well as how to deal with this very stressful time in their lives. Considering all the pressures they have to deal with, from peer and social pressures (which often lead to eating disorders),a changing physiology, pressures to do well in school and other activities, teens can benefit immeasurably by learning the techniques presented here. This CD has tracks that contain guided affirmations, deep breathing techniques, relaxation and visualization, tools that will not only help them during the difficult teen years but can also help them build a foundation that can help them for the rest of their lives. This program is also a wonderful tool for teens to use in order to relax into sleep after a stressful day (and parents may find themselves wanting a copy for themselves as well to help them deal with their own stress). -- Yoga Dad "This is the ONLY CD for teens of its kind! I have read many books on parenting teens but Indigo Teen Dreams actually instructs your child on how to manage anger and anxiety. The techniques are the same I have been taught for stress management only they are presented in a teen friendly manner. Great voice, great directions, great music, great results. I and my teen are enjoying this CD." -- Thomas (NY, USA) "My son is having so many problems adjusting to High School. He is a bright kid who is not a jock, not the most popular kid and not the best student. He is an average kid who is struggling to keep up with the pressure of life and being a teen. Lately he has been depressed, not confident and is starting to doubt whether he fits in with any group. My sister introduced me to Indigo Teen Dreams a few weeks back. I listened to it first and was very impressed with the content, techniques and music. I was hopping he would be to. He was! He listens to the CD almost every night and I hear him saying the affirmations out loud. I also see them taped up to his mirror. He seems surer of himself in the last week and is trying out for the drama club. Although we are still working on some issues it seems this CD has helped. I recommend this to anyone who has teens whether they are struggling like mine or seem perfectly content. I have also listened to it during the day and I enjoy the belly breathing myself." -- L.Net (AU) I gave this CD to my neighbor's son who is having difficulty adjusting to High School. He has thanked me several times saying that it is really making a difference for him. He says he feels much more relaxed and is sleeping much better! I then decided to give one to my daughter and although she slammed her door in her usual rebellious way I know that she is listening every night. I now have a 10 year old listening to "Indigo Ocean Dreams" and my teenager listening to "Indigo Teen Dreams". My kids loves the techniques,(so do I). They loves the calm voice and seems to connect with the reasons presented by the narrator as to why she they should actually do this. The narrator talks "to" teens not "at" them. The music is relaxing without being corny. A great series that I call "rescue stress relief". -- J. Lynch (USA) Obviously I highly recommend this CD for any teen. - Great Stories - Great narration! - Great music! I never expected my son to want to listen more than once but I was willing to give it a shot. After all, I already invested thousands of dollars on therapy. To my surprise he loved the stories and asks for it every night. His whole outlook on life has improved and he is now telling me to breathe deeply and relax! Unbelievable! -- Calvin (Leeds, United Kingdom) top of page Indigo Dreams: Adult Relaxation I had been having trouble falling asleep for a few months now with a lot of muscle tension. This came recommended from a friend. I used it every night for a few weeks and now I just fall asleep. It is great to help you work through anything that has you stressed in life. It really helps you get back into your body. -- L. Broemmer (Marin, CA) The quality and content of this CD was no surprise. We own the one for children and loved it. This CD has proven itself as well. The CD is a wonderful evening or bedtime tool to slow oneself down, to relax, to de-stress. The quality of my sleep is much improved and my heart rate has slowed down considerably which can only improve my overall health as well! This family owns several of the Indigo Dreams products and every one is a wonderful tool. As you can tell, I recommend all Indigo Dreams products highly! -- T. Brayer (Houston , TX USA) I really enjoy this CD! I love to listen to it after I put the kids to bed. The speaker's voice is very soothing and reassuring. I especially like the progression of affirmations that repeat and build to incorporate a real sense of peace of mind. I am usually sleepy and deeply relaxed within minutes. The techniques are presented in a natural order, starting with affirmations, then breathing, then visualizing and then muscular relaxation. Working in this order of first relaxing the mind, then body, then spirit made the techniques even more effective...Each track incorporates silence, music and narration for a truly relaxing blend of guidance, instruction and relaxation. This CD is great for de-stressing or meditation. I also recommend the Relaxation Response if you are looking to read medical facts on why to relax and meditate. -- Denise E. (GA, USA) I have listened to many a guided meditation CD where I have struggled to understand the narrator. This voice is just what I needed, just the right tempo and the voice alone will relax you. The narrator is clear and does not have any accent to decipher at all. The speaker is so engaging that it takes almost no effort to listen to or follow. The techniques are perfect for letting the stress of the day go. The music is relaxing and inspiring in its own right! Say goodbye to anxiety, stress and sleepless nights with this CD. Also love Indigo Dreams for children and Indigo Teen Dreams. Excellent series! -- J. Lynch (NYC, USA) As a single mother and a manager in a Technical Support department, I have quite a bit of stress in my life. I used to take it all with me at the end of the day and often ended up continuing to 'work' all through the night. This has been a tremendous help in guiding me to relax at the end of the day and just let go of all the stress and worries. The more I use it, the easier it is to relax - both at the end of the day and when I find myself in stressful moments during the day. I am now trying the Indigo Dreams children's version with my kids to help them calm down and get ready to sleep. I really like the positive nature this takes in empowering the listener to direct herself. -- Marina (Author of The Truth about Caffeine) Love it, love it, love it. My children have been using the Indigo Dreams CDs for years. They have had such a positive impact on my family that I finally decided to try one for myself. The exercises are doing the trick of helping me wind down from my daily stressful routine. I used to be up till 1 am thinking about tomorrow. Now, I look forward to getting in bed knowing the CD will help me stop thinking long enough to fall asleep. I love the visualization that is also designed to boost my immune system. All of the techniques are easy to follow and listen to. Music is also first rate. -- Monika (KY, USA) This is a great CD for managing stress and anxiety. It's not a magic cure, but it helps greatly by guiding your mind and body into a relaxed state. I have panic attacks and I have had too many problems with medicine. I was looking for someone to give me the tools to help me relax in tense and anxious moments. I have to say that although I have not put the tools learned from this CD to the test yet, I have faith that they will help me to get through the anxious and stressed out moments of my day and evening. I like that each technique starts out individual, meaning you don't have to listen to the whole CD if you just want to do the Breathing track, you can, and each track has it's own beginning and its own end. I like that it fades out with a couple of minutes of relaxing music at the end of each track, or session, this allows you to calmly transition. One thing I would like to mention is that I was under the impression that Loriwould be the voice on this CD, and in fact it is a man's voice, which is not clear in the description of the product. However, the man's voice is very southing and smooth so it wasn't a problem for me. This CD is defiantly worth the price and it's perfect for anyone who doesn't know what to do to calm their body and mind down when its reacting to stress and/or anxiety. I wish there were more adult CD's by her, like something for situational anxiety, maybe a CD for handling crowds, or the dentist. -- An Honest Reviewer top of page Stress Awareness Curriculum I purchased this program with GATE (Gifted and Talented Education) funds from my district last year to be used with 12-14 year olds and the students really loved the CD for relaxation and even the children's stories. Many gifted and Indigo children get very anxious about feeling the need to be perfectionist and this program enables them to relax and focus with more clarity when they use their imagination or take a test. I highly recommend it, even for teenagers! -- Michelle Sale - middle school teacher (Orange County, CA) As a Montessori directress, I have employed the Children's Awareness Curriculum in my classroom for more than a year. With each story, meditation, relaxation lesson and activity, the children's enjoyment levels and interest continue expanding on a consistent basis. LoriLite's ideas have been a wonderful catalyst to a Peace curriculum that is building with each happy request by the children to do more of the activities. This foundation has led us to Yoga, self-affirming games, and cooperative play that exceeds not only my original intention in offering it to the children, but has made an impression and a significant impact on the way the children approach most new challenges posed to them. It is a terrific place to start! -- C. Bye (Troy , Ohio) I have been evaluating many books and curriculums designed to teach relaxation and stress management to children. What struck me most about the Children's Awareness Curriculum is how user friendly it is! I had everything I needed to set up an instant classroom! The books and CD make it easy and the flags bring an instant focal point. I also purchased the Yoga Mudra and Chakra posters for an added classroom feel. Each lesson is laid out from the minute you greet the children to the minute they leave. No guessing or filling in those awkward moments. Lori Lite has really managed to make these complex concepts EASY to TEACH! Highly recommended for anyone with or without teaching experience and with or without relaxation experience. -- Monika (Kentucky) As a stress consultant I work with children in a one on one session based environment. I have always dreamed of teaching children in a group format. This curriculum enabled me to create such a group. There are so many benefits in having the children together to support each other and create a fun interactive environment. I opened the curriculum and was ready to go. I love how it in includes everything I needed (except crayons) to immediately teach a class. The "Indigo Dreams" CD demonstrates how to use the actual stress management techniques in the lessons. The kids LOVED it! If you have always wanted to teach children but didn't know how to get started I highly recommend this curriculum. It is so user friendly that even if you have never taught before you will be able to! -- Denice A.
