Description

Having trouble sleeping?  Join Yoga and meditation teacher Kathryn Nicolai for bedtime stories where nothing much happens to help you relax and sleep peacefully. The stories are a soft landing spot for your mind. Rather than letting your brain race through the same thoughts you’ve been chasing all day, we are taking a detour to a calm and comfy place. We tell the story twice and go a bit slower the second time.

I really enjoy writing, listening to, and reading short stories that are calm, warm, and so beautifully written that I can almost taste, feel, see, smell, and hear what's going on. I'm impressed by each episode. One episode alone might not put me to sleep, but it does inspire me to write! I really enjoy your voice and imagination--thank you for sharing your talent!

I'm so disappointed. This isn't the same voice I loved to hear. She spoke slowly which was wonderful. This woman talks fast..way too fast.

I love your stories, but please stop putting an ad after "sweet dreams". It almost always jars me awake.

That one of the few stories, where I couldn't fall asleep on the first reading, as it was too interesting to listen to, and to learn the ending 🥰
