Traumstunde "Die Schokoladenverkäuferin"

Text of this dream hour / relaxation story

That's how you dream to yourself ...

This is how you dream - until suddenly a high voice next to you calls "Hello you". You look to the side. There is a friendly smiling woman standing beside her with a big car full of chocolate. "I am Karla, the chocolate seller, would you like to try some? You get up and run to the big, colourful chocolate cart. "Very much gladly", you say. But the decision as to which variety you want to try is a little difficult. Nougat or hazelnut? Raspberry or marzipan? It all looks so delicious! But since the chocolate seller also has to move on, you choose the small yellow package in which the hazelnut chocolate hides. You unfold the rustling paper and put the small piece of chocolate into your mouth. The fresh hazelnuts crack between your teeth and you taste the delicious, creamy chocolate taste.

"You know what?" says Karla, "I'll give you the piece". "Thank you Karla," you say. "Maybe we'll see each other again in town at the market soon.
"I'm sure," Karla says. "Take care". You watch a little as Karla walks through the park with her chocolate cart and spoils the next children with her delicious chocolate. Then you pack up your blanket, look satisfied into the blue sky and make your way home slowly and comfortably.

About the authors

Katrin Hennings: "I am a state-approved curative nurse and have an additional qualification as a course instructor in the area of relaxation for children. During my work in the family and handicapped help I could gain different experiences in the areas of perception promotion, basal stimulation and sensory integration. I have deepened these in my pedagogical work and have repeatedly noticed the enormous positive effects that various relaxation methods have on the well-being of children with and without disabilities.

A lack of concentration, stress, fears or an unsatisfactory body feeling can be balanced and improved by simple relaxation techniques, such as a dream journey or a child-friendly relaxation massage. Extensive studies have shown that children can relax more easily than adults. But children also let themselves be guided more by external circumstances and their impulses. Through targeted relaxation, children learn to see relaxation as something valuable and thus better control their impulses - which contributes to a healthy development of psychomotor skills."

Uta Darmer:  "I am a state-approved educator and mother of two children aged 18 and 14. Currently I work in a day care center which is attended by children aged 2 to 6 years. We all know that today more than ever children are exposed to sensory overload and an often hectic everyday life. This makes it all the more important to give them time and space to rest and relax in a child-friendly way. For many years I have therefore been dealing with the subject of relaxation pedagogy and regularly attend further training courses on the subject.

I experience again and again the great enthusiasm with which children get involved in relaxation stories and embark on dream journeys. In these, the big and small experiences of everyday life can be processed in a pleasant way and help children to rest, balance and strengthened concentration."
