Lighten Up CDOpen Your Heart and Lighten Up! (CD)
In 1992 I was overweight, unhealthy and unhappy.  On New Year's Even 1992 I attended a 24-hour meditation where I asked for a tool that would bring body, mind and spirit into alignment — a tool that would enable me to love myself just the way I was.  The easy nuruture, 5 minute a day process that was given to me during that meditation is what I share with you in this tape.  Within 10 months of starting this process I regained my health, lot 92 pounds, looked and felt 20 years younger and began a new career.  This tape is for anyone who wishes to heal or transform their life on any level.  Many have said it is the "missing piece of the puzzle."  I believe that loving ourselves is not only the most transformative thing we can do for ourselves, in this tape I explain why it is the most important thing we can do for the planet.  Bringing peace to the planet begins by bringing ourselves to  a state of inner peace.  My message is one of empowerment and peace through love and I feel my mission is to share this process with the world.  If you are ready for transformation, this tape is for you!

Evolution biologist Dr. Elizabet Sahtouris says of Victor Grey, "I really love that he wrote the book I hoped someone would write about the Internet.

I Love Myself: A Lighten Up Message for Kids
(Out of print - No longer available)

The seed for the tape was planted several years ago when a pre-school teacher who had attended a Lighten Up workshop decided to bring the process into her classroom. She created a song that she had the children sing each day about loving each part of their bodies. She said they'd sing the song, then would end by giving themselves a great big hug. The song became so popular with the kids that if she forgot to sing it, she would get a chorus of kids saying, "When are we going to love ourselves today, when are we going to love ourselves?" The amazing thing she noticed, however, was that her classroom became so peaceful that people would actually poke their heads in the door to see why there was no commotion. Where there had been fighting, crying or acting out there was now peace and the children became loving toward each other.

Inspired by the teacher's experience and requests by many parents and teachers that she produce a tape, Carol Hansen joined with professional musician and K-12 music teacher, Marianne Ort to co-create a musical and inspirational tape directed to children from infancy to around 10 years of age. This short tape is suitable for use in the classroom as well as at home. It can be used by teachers, parents, family counselors, ministers, physicians and healthcare professionals, social workers, daycare workers, babysitters... anyone and everyone who cares for children! Once you hear this tape, you'll want to give it to every child in your life (and maybe every adult, too)!

Side 1 of the tape features an original song composed and sung by Marianne that is simply contagious. Children absolutely adore it and want to hear it over and over again. Everyone who hears it, is lifted into a joyful space. Many find that they are singing it to themselves throughout the day! Also on Side 1 Marianne narrates a short inspirational message to children about the importance of loving themselves.  On Side 2 Carol Hansen delivers a powerful and inspirational message to parents and teachers about the importance of teaching our children to love themselves and exploring how we, as adults, can support them in that process. $10
