The Hidden Forest of Dreams

A very sleepy original story about a sunset stroll on Sleep Mountain with the old man, Bodhi and Ninja.

Tonight’s episode from Sleep Mountain is an original story by Evelyn Rivers and me called The Hidden Forest of Dreams. I’ll be reading it twice, the first time will have some gentle music and sleepy sounds in the background, the second time through will be just the story a little slower, much the same way Kathryn Nicolai does with her original stories about the village of Nothing Much in her wonderful bedtime story podcast, Nothing Much Happens. She has been such an inspiration and a friend to me and if you haven’t yet heard her podcast, I highly recommend it. You can find it at ⁠⁠

It's your support that allows me to be your bedtime storyteller and meditation guide. For just $4.99 a month, you'll have immediate access to the entire archive of over 350 episodes and all the weekly stories & meditations a day earlier. By popular request, you can now listen to the stories, meditations and audiobook chapters all organized into their own separate, easy-to-use feeds. Even on Spotify. :). To join or learn more, visit

You can also leave a tip or buy a shareable audiobook of the longer books I read on Listen To Sleep Plus. It's a great way to support the podcast and get some extra bedtime stories without a monthly subscription. Each one is available to own for just $5.50 as chapterized mp3s that will play on any MP3 player. You can find them at
