Reviews - What do customers think about Bedtime Stories: A Unique Guided Relaxation Program for Falling Asleep and Entering the World of Dreams?
A Nurturing Solution for Insomnia Oct 14, 2008
What more could an insomiac ask than having someone with a great voice read you a story at bedtime?
Most suitable for women and teens, Pinkola Estes tells soothing, empowering stories that seamlessly glide from one to the next. The stories, based on fairy and folk tales, are fascinating. Pinkola Estes paints scenes so vividly, that the troubles of the day fall away and you find yourself comforted, relaxed, and primed for sleep.
This is a CD you will use over and over. My only complaint is that there isn't a vol. 2, 3, and 4 so they can be rotated.
Bedtime Stories May 8, 2008
I enjoyed this CD very much. I felt like I had really slept the night through and woke up refresshed at more at peace. I highly recommend this to anyone especially moms that need to relax and energize at the same time.
Cannot play it Nov 23, 2007
I am pretty sure that,if the cd was working, it is very good, but mine starts on the story number 9. It does not matter where I try playing the cd , it always starts on number 9 and there are only 10 stories. I need another cd.
Disappointed listener Aug 23, 2007
This was not what I expected. The good reviews led me to believe it would be great. Unfortunately, it does not do justice to the hype. Some stories are very long and are read too slowly.
Not for me Apr 1, 2007
Soothing bedtime stories - what a great idea! I was looking forward to listening to this CD, especially considering all the great reviews. Unfortunately, I found most of the tracks are Dr. Estes *talking about* stories rather than telling stories. There are 10 tracks on this CD. I did not expect the 38-second introduction to be a story. However, of the other nine tracks only four, in my opinion, are actually Dr. Estes telling stories. Those four are "The Sleeping Beauty", "The Lion and the Mouse Fable", "The Jumping Mouse Tale", and "Winken, Blinken and Nod". Also, listening to these stories, or at least the style in which she tells them, did not help me relax or fall asleep. For me, when I go to bed I basically want to relax and "turn off" my mind. These stories did not help me do that.
If you really want a CD that will help you relax and fall asleep, I recommend "Your Present: A Half Hour of Peace" by Susie Mantell, or "Journey into Deep Relaxation" by Doreen Blumenfeld. Those two worked for me.
