Sleep Stories

If you struggle with insomnia, you might enjoy some of the soothing sleep stories I’ve written and/or narrated…

Have you tried the Calm app yet?

If not, feel free to download it and give it a try!

At Calm we teach the skill of meditation and how to bring mindfulness into your daily life. Reduce anxiety, soften reactivity, and get more restful sleep.


"I've been using the Calm app for the last 2 months because of feeling overwhelmed with stresses and needed to take 10 minutes at a time to release the tension. My stress was hurting me, my family, and my work. I'm a highschool teacher and have built Calm into my World Religions course as I find students suffering from a lot of anxiety and stress. It's helping them too. I thought you might like to know how the good things you put out into the world are creating peace on a larger scale. Great job at making the world better and personally helping me find more peace."

"I have been using your calm app almost daily for about 1 year. I am a holistic physician working in Eugene... And I recommend the Calm app to many of my clients. It is a great way to start the morning by hearing your calm soothing voice for 10 minutes..."

"In early December, I was in a near fatal car accident. I shouldn't have survived the accident given what it did to my car. After the accident, I was all alone and PTSD set in. I couldn't sleep because of nightmares and constant flashbacks. I spent my days afraid to even leave my apartment. My best friend then told me about Calm. So I downloaded it. I was skeptical at first. But it has changed my life. The sleep stories (particularly The Waterfall, The Long Journey, and my favorite, Ella's treasure) have helped me finally sleep at night. Similarly, the meditations during the daytime have given me so much peace and serenity. I don't have the overwhelming anxiety anymore and I'm not as scared to venture out of my apartment anymore. I don't know where I'd be without Calm. It's been indispensable for my recovery. It's kept the accident from stealing my spark and my spirit. Everyday I feel myself getting better. Thank you so very much for the app. "

"First of all, I LOVE your voice. When I hear it every morning, it immediately soothes me. I was introduced to when I went to a conference for the wives of firefighters held in the Boston area. I am sure you can imagine the stress we face when we know our husbands are running toward the fire, accident, or disaster instead of away from it. Being turned onto was a Godsend. It has proved even better than that when my husband was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer--a probable manifestation of his profession. Since August 25th of last year, I have turned to to find some sanity. Often times after his diagnosis, I just sat and cried with you. But, I continued to listen to your familiar voice, which slowly drew me back to some sense of normalcy. So...I just wanted to thank you for what you do and for having that voice I look forward to sitting with everyday."

"Thank you for the year's subscription to because I am a teacher. I use it daily to keep myself aligned which in turn helps me with my students. I frequently start my classes with a calming breathing exercise. On quiz corrections/reflections kids tell me that they would like to practice more ways to redirect themselves when they get distracted. Your mediations are spot on. Often when I plug into the Daily Calm, a light shines on the exact struggle in which I wrestle: failure, uncertainty, forgiveness. You are teaching and reaching an untold number of people, Tamara. Thank you."

"I just finished my 158th session from the Calm app, and I feel compelled to be in touch to express my deep appreciation for your teachings. I have endured a severe depression over the past few months, and your guided meditations have been a huge factor in my recovery. Your voice is calm and soothing and I look forward to your daily lessons. Please keep doing what you're doing!!! I hope that you get as much satisfaction from the teaching as I (and many others) do from your guidance. With great gratitude, Jaylene"
