Indigo Ocean Dreams is a 60 minute audio/CD designed to entertain your child in an ocean setting while introducing them to four research-based, stress management techniques. Each story integrates either progressive muscular relaxation, visualizations, breathing, and affirmations (positive statements). Children follow their sea friends along as they use progressive muscular relaxation and breathing to release and manage anger with Angry Octopus. Children build self-esteem with positive believe in yourself statements with Affirmation Weaver. Diaphragmatic breathing is fun with sea otters in Sea Otter Cove. Children enjoy a bubble ride through the ocean as they visualize colors with Bubble Riding. This CD offers longer stories than the first in this series, Indigo Dreams. Ideal 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 male 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, pain, sleep issues, and lack of confidence.

4 Stars calming
I bought it for my 11th year old daughter….it's sooo calming that she fells asleep everytime she listens the CD.
2 Stars good concept, poor execution
I do not recommend this CD. I wish I could have listened to a sample of the CD before I purchased it. It was a waste of money. The electronic "music" or noise on this CD is annoying. I like the concept of teaching relaxation techniques to children. But my grandchildren did not like the narrator's voice or the music and asked that it be turned off. I was looking for something to help them fall asleep when they come to visit. This was not the right CD. A better choice for young children (infant to six) is Rainforest by Fisher Price. The music is soothing and can be played at very low volumn. Another favorite is the Garden of Serenity by David and Steve Gordon. While I think this CD is intended for adults, it is appropriate for any age. The grandchildren love the chime and water sounds. With either of these CD's they fall asleep within minutes.
5 Stars Great product!
I love the Indigo Ocean Dreams CD and the books that correlate to it. I am a Behavioral Resource Teacher and work with students with emotional and behavioral disabilities. I have used the stories during social skills lessons as well as in independent listening centers. All of my students (in grades Kdg. through 6th) have enjoyed the stories. My students have learned valuable strategies for decreasing stress, dealing with feelings of anger, and believing in themselves. I would recommend this product to any classroom teacher.
5 Stars Indigo- a birthday gift that I love
I was ske-ptical at first but then it won me over as something worthwhile. Despite some initial fidgeting on the part of me , the first time I listened to it, I soon after settled down and became engrossed and involved. A couple of times, I almost fell asleep. Although I have only had the CD's for a few months now, they have already become a part of the pre-monday morning rush routine. I recently received this as a gift to use with my 11 and 12 year old sons. This cd is really beautiful; filled with positive, uplifting, and empowering stories presented in soothing, steady tones. The pace of the speaking and spacing of the stories is slow and deliberate, achieving the goal of peaceful relaxation. The CD's are passively interactive…breathing, stretching, relaxing and absorbing the message. These CD's facilitate learning very important techniques for self-regulation and control and I highly recommend them to all families.
