" What a gift! I was urgently searching for something that would help my middle school age special needs students (autistic, intellectually and emotionally disabled, Down's Syndrome, ADHD) calm down during the end of the year schedule changes and state testing all of which were extremely stressful for all involved. I found this website, listened to the samples (this really sold me), and used my limited class funds to purchase the 3 CD set for Teens.
Each afternoon my students found a comfortable place to lie down and we listened to 1 CD. My kids were hooked from the first one! They ask me each morning: "Are we listening to our CD today?" They are asking me for the website so their parents can purchase these for them at home! In 3 days my students' smiles are brighter and their attitudes more positive.
These CDs will become integrated into my program for next year. Truly remarkable results! Thank you ShambalaTeens CDs and Mellisa Dormoy

" I am very grateful to have found this wonderful resource. I am an elementary school speech-language therapist and use ShambalaKids CD's at school about once a week with some of my students who have emotional regulation challenges. I also lead a "Seeds of Peace Project" group for my bullying prevention program at the school and we have used this CD on occasion to talk about how our thoughts and feelings affect one another and discuss how using relaxation or meditation can be a useful tool when stressed out. I get asked almost daily if we can "do relaxation"! I love Mellisa's soothing voice and lovely comments filled with positivity. Mellisa's concepts of planting seeds of positive and empowering thoughts are in alignment with my program, I love hearing the children whispering the affirmations to themselves as she guides them through the tape. My students with autism absolutely love "The Magician" track !!! I highly recommend this to parents and classroom teachers"
