"Indigo Ocean Dreams" is a 60 minute CD/audio book designed to entertain your child in an ocean setting while introducing them to four relaxation and stress-management techniques. Children follow their sea friends along as they learn to release and manage anger with "Angry Octopus", build self-esteem with "Affirmation Weaver", implement breathing with "Sea Otter Cove" and visualize with "Bubble Riding". Designed as the sequel to "Indigo Dreams", this CD offers longer stories and expands on the relaxation techniques of breathing, visualizations, muscular relaxation and affirmations. It is deal for older children ages 6-12, or as step two for those already familiar with "Indigo Dreams". Engaging characters present these adult level techniques in an easy to follow format that makes it fun for any child to learn. The narration is accompanied by calming sounds of dolphins, sea otters and gentle waves. An additional music sound track is included to further enhance your child's relaxation experience. These proven techniques encourage wellness and provide tools for children who suffer from anxiety, stress, trauma, hyperactivity, anger, sleep issues and lack of confidence. These stories were created to help our own child realize how easy it was to let go of anger and believe in herself. I knew I had another hit when my daughter asked me to tell her the octopus story over and over again!

Comments about Indigo Ocean Dreams:
My daughter (7) is a bit of a stress head, God love her, and this CD has been fantastic for her with some big changes coming up in her life at the moment. She puts it on religiously every night and listens to the stories narrated that go through breathing exercises and relaxation (all at a child's level) and finishes up with relaxing music and ocean sounds. My other daughter (5) listens to it too and I can hear both of them doing the breathing...then snoring :D There is no mucking around after lights out anymore and has helped with her anxiety
I bought this CD for my 10 year old daughter who has terrible trouble getting to sleep at night. She would still be awake at midnight some nights and be very ratty in the morning due to lack of sleep. The first night I used this CD, she went to bed at 8pm and was asleep by 8.35pm. An absolute miracle for her. Woke up the next day brighter and happier than I can remember. Have been using for nearly a week now and the change in her sleeping habits is fantastic. I have also been using it for my 7 year old son as he also wanted to have his CD player on at night, he does not have sleep problems but is a very active and excitable child and it seems to have calmed him down a bit. Overall a great product and I will definatley be trying the other CD's in the series. -Smarts, Perth, Western Australia I have purchased all the Indigo Dreams CD's for my 6yr old daughter. She absolutely loves climbing in bed and listening to these CD's just about every night! I was first introduced to the Indigo Dreams series a year and half ago when my daughter was battling a serious illness. Throughout her treatment and recovery, these CD's and techniques have helped to reduce her stress and anxiety. I would highly recommend these to anyone who has a child that maybe going through some type of stressful illness. - A Thankful Parent-GA Indigo Ocean Dreams I would highly recommend this CD for mental health workers who have children on their caseload. Finding resources for children are very difficult so I was very happy to locate this product. I have been working with several children experiencing anger management and anxiety problems and they really enjoy this CD. Also, their parents benefit from the techniques and the time spent with their children practicing the techniques. -Michelle Rosenthal 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.
