A film that’s good for the heart

The Power of the Heart brings together some influential icons of our age to share their personal stories and reflections

Author Baptist De Pape will be in Vernon this weekend to present the inspiring movie based on his book‚ The Power of the Heart‚ which has been on a world tour. It is an unparalleled and life-changing film about the astonishing power and intelligence of your heart.

Sponsored by the Essence Teahouse & Bookstore and the Centre for Spiritual Living Vernon, it will be screened on Sunday with discussion and book signings with the author to follow.

The Power of the Heart presents fascinating evidence that our heart is much more than a physical organ. It can actually transform our views of money, health, relationships, and success. The film explores how we can listen to the heart to effect powerful change in our lives and in the world.

In the film, the famous Heart Math Institute discusses how the human heart noticeably reacts to images seen or yet to be seen, before the mind or body does.

“We did an experiment and we actually discovered something quite remarkable. The heart seems to be connected to a type of intuition that is not bound by the limits of time and space,” said Rollin McCraty, executive vice-president and director of research. “ But what is that intuition and how can we learn to tap into more of that?”

The film is directed by Drew Heriot, well-known for his film The Secret‚ and it features some of the most thought-provoking and influential icons of our age. It includes interviews with Paulo Coelho, Maya Angelou, Deepak Chopra, Neale Donald Walsh, Michael Beckwith, Marianne Williamson and Eckhart Tolle, sharing personal stories and reflections on grief, love and passion.

Screening of The Power of the Heart takes place Sunday at 1:30 p.m. at the Centre for Spiritual Living, 2913-29th Ave. It’s an inspiring way to spend the afternoon. The book and DVD of the film will be available for sale, and the author will be signing copies. Admission is by donation. See the trailer at:
