Carol Hansen Grey and Victor Grey birthed Open Heart Press in 1995 to publish Victor’s book, Web Without a Weaver: How the Internet is Shaping Our Future. They meditated on whether or not it would be best for them to try to get the book published in the traditional way by sending the manuscript to different publishers hoping to have it accepted. Through their meditations they got a clear vision that they were to publish it themselves. That was how the Open Heart Press journey began.
Their next project was the publishing of their Lighten Up Audio Tape, a professional recording of Carol & Victor’s popular workshop that teaches an easy, nurturing 5-minute-a-day process to bring you into a state of unconditional love of yourself. The tape has sold over 25,000 copies without a marketing campaign — strictly by word of mouth. In 2007 the tape was replaced with a revised and updated Lighten Up CD that continues to inspire people to love themselves.
The Lighten Up Audio Tape was soon followed by the Free Yourself from Fear Audio Tape, another one of Carol and Victor’s workshops. This simple, down-to-earth technique, inspired by Carol and Victor’s daily Course in Miracles meditations, enables you to release yourself from the grip of fear, grief, anger or any limiting emotion. The audio tape was revised and updated in 2008 with a Free Yourself from Fear CD and booklet.
Both the Lighten Up tape and Free Yourself tape were republished as CDs in 2005.
In 2007 Open Heart Press produced a CD of Dr. Jean Shinoda Bolen’s Closing Keynote Address at the 3rd International Women’s Peace Conference in Dallas, Texas. The CD entitled Heeding the Urgent Message from Mother is an inspiring call to action to “gather the women and save the world.”
In Simple Healing Tools: On the Path to Personal Empowerment and Inner Peace published in May 2009 Carol shares stories of her own healing journey as well as detailed descriptions of the tools she used along the path. The book and its companion website also include an extensive list of resources for the reader’s further exploration. Simple Healing Tools is a book designed to inspire transformational growth, personal empowerment and the achievement of inner peace for individuals, couples and families.
Carol's newest product is her Personal Empowerment Card Deck. This beautifully designed deck of 33 Personal Empowerment Cards was inspired by Carol's Simple Healing Tools book. Each card has a unique, delightfully designed message to help you shift into a state of personal empowerment. The business card-sized deck is packaged in a 2-piece plastic storage box and also comes with an instruction card for individual and group use.
