Editorial Reviews

Review

In Simple Healing Tools, Carol Hansen Grey begins with stories from her own life that are short and to the point. She describes her circumstances and how she paid attention to information that came from intuition, body-messages, and teachers, and then tried something that changed her life for the better. She shares what has worked for her.

In the thirty stories and twenty-six tools she shares with us, it is very likely that there will be something for the reader who is drawn to open this book. If so, the synchronistic message from Eastern philosophy, "When the pupil is ready, the teacher will come," will turn out to be true.

Carol is down-to-earth practical and a spiritual seeker, she tells what has worked for her and shares what she has learned with us. These are words from a wise-woman, crone! --Jean Shinoda Bolen, MD, Author of Goddesses in Everywoman and Heeding the Urgent Message from Mother

More About the Author

Author and motivational speaker Carol Hansen Grey is a visionary catalyst and social activist whose passion is to help people love and empower themselves. She does this through her books and CDs, through the projects she initiates and through her graphic design and web development work.

In 1996 she first produced her Open Your Heart and Lighten Up audio tape (currently available as a CD from http://openheartpress.com) based on her popular workshop that teaches people a simple 5-minute-a-day process that brings you into a state of unconditional love of yourself. For the next 10 years she and her husband Victor Grey traveled throughout the United States and Canada teaching her workshop. In 1997 she and Victor initiated the Only Love Prevails World Peace Experiment (http://onlylovepresvails.org) and in 1998 they published their Free Yourself from Fear audio tape (currently available as a CD from http://openheartpress.com). From 2000-2004 Carol served as the Executive Director of Women of Vision and Action (http://wova-archive.org), a 501c3 organization, through which she initiated the Athena Wisdom Exchange Mentoring Program (AWE), the Feminine Face of Leadership Conference, and the international Gather the Women movement (gtw-archive.org).

With Victor she co-founded Open Heart Press publishing company in 1995, CustomDynamic.net web development and design company in 2000. In 2004 Carol agreed to serve on a core team of women to promote a 5th Women's World Conference and developed a website for that purpose (http://5WWC.org). In 2009 she developed a sister site to further the goals (http://5WCW.org).

In 2009 her book, Simple Healing Tools: On the Path to Personal Empowerment and Inner Peace, was published by Open Heart Press.

This book just saved my marriage of 34 years. I was ready to throw it all in when Carol's book arrived in the mail. Thumbing through the book, I was drawn to story #9, Letting Go of Judgements. Then I skipped backwards to #8, Paying attention to the signals. Back and forth through the book I went, finding comfort in Carols stories and suggestions in the tools.

Before the book, my plan was to create a big scene to show my husband that I knew what was going on and how he was hurting me. Following some of the tools, I sat down and mediated on what I truly wanted. I discovered that what I wanted was a warm close relationship with husband built on trust. If I couldn't have that, I didn't want a relationship. Instead of big drama, I used the Healing Tools to create on of the best days of our marriage. We had a long and loving conversation. We are working on repairing our relationship by improving our communication and shared goals.

All this came about because Carol Hansen Grey has great wisdom and insights. She shares them with us in a very easy and accessible way. Thank you Carol!

Format: Paperback
this inspirational book is practical, thoughtful and i refer to it often as it reinforces my belief that i am on the right path... i like the fact that i can seek out the story that corresponds with what i'm feeling at the moment, feel uplifted by it and then go deeper by further reading the tool which gives me instant action to take... prior to reading this book, carol and her husband victor's "free yourself from fear" cd transformed the way i relate to what might be percieved as obstacles in my life and restored my sense of faith... this book is a great tool in itself for me to refer to in my day to day life as i delight in this amazing time where i find myself recreating myself and enjoying the process thanks to carol hansen grey! what a gift, i highly recommend it.

Carol Hansen Grey has put together a lifetime of healing tools, that are simple to use and easy to continue using, with powerful results. So often, we commit to a new practice, only to give it up in a few days. This is not the case with Simple Healing Tools. The excercises are easy to remember and to put into action.

After reading the book, I went back to look at a couple of the passages that I underscored. One that stands out is, "We have been taught: it is selfish to love ourselves; we are bad if we love ourselves; we are not lovable unless we look a certain way or behave in a 'normal' manner. Therefore, we have been conditioned since childhood to look at ourselves with negativity and even hate. I believe that there is a direct correlation between the amount of violence in the world and the huge number of people who do not love themselves!" Carol is onto something here.

Thank you, Carol, for gathering and sharing these simple, yet deeply transformative wisdom/healing tools. As I read thru the book, I had the feeling of sitting with a wise Auntie, one whose stories were food for the soul, whose wisdom was born of intentional experience and freely shared with Love.

Accompanying each story is a treasure trove of exercises -- from manifestation to meditation, presence to prayer, freeing ourselves from fear to engaging our angels in support of our dreams.

Carol is authentically audacious and holistically in-tune with what it takes to thrive in our unique journey of Life, and reflects this with speed, ease and agility. A true mark of one who embodies what they teach!

Pick up a copy AND one to share ... you will be grateful for the insight, tools and comfort found in the wisdom gracing these pages.

Enjoy!

This book is so full of wisdom and self-help tools that I highly recommend it to all who want to have a happy and healthy life. It is filled with wonderful stories from the author's experience and easy exercises for healing and empowerment. One of my favorite stories in the book is "Working Your Joy". It gives a definition of sin being that of seeing your next step and not taking it. Simple Healing Tools helps us all to take the next step and steps in living a healthy, prosperous and full life. Go buy it for yourself and others. Namaste!!! Ann Smith, Circle Connection.

In this inspiring, easy-to-read book of simple healing tools, Carol Hansen shares workshop participant's, as well as her own, experiences with these tools in brief yet powerful stories that illustrate life improvement in relationships, health, finance, career and self worth. If a person were to implement only one of these tools, their life would change for the better in some meaningful way.
