Conscious Bedtime Story Club: The Hug Who Got Stuck

$8,827

When children get loving connection at this time of day, they integrate their day better and go to sleep feeling safe and knowing that they belong. This grows their confidence and self-esteem.

These stories have wise, lovable characters who model real-life situations to your children, showing them how to resolve challenges before they arise. They also have easy breathing meditations and activity pages that help parents and children connect.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

  

  

 

 

 

Each book has the Snuggle Breathing meditation at the start and a unique activity page  at the end.

I learned as a healer that it is important to hold a congruent, coherent intention for the deepest healing. I want the energetic pathway of each story to remain intact from start to finish. This can't happen if it gets passed over to a corporate team who make decisions about style and illustration without me.

  • I want to grow community, not just sell books. 
  • I want to keep the collection together. 
  • I want to nourish young illustrator talent.
  • I want the best possible prices for conscious educators and therapists.

 

 

Risks and challenges
