Author and filmmaker Baptiste de Pape will attend a screening of “The Power of the Heart” in North Delta this Thursday (Sept. 24).

The 7 p.m. screening at Delta Firehall Centre for the Arts will be followed by a Q&A session with de Pape, who spent five years travelling the world to interview Maya Angelou, Deepak Chopra, Paulo Coelho, Eckhart Tolle, Jane Goodall and other “Ambassadors of the Heart.”

Tickets for the event in Delta, at 11489 84th Ave., are $10 in advance by calling 604-596-4485, or $12 at the door.

The inspiration for the film came to de Pape five years ago as he was working as a lawyer in Amsterdam. He realized he wasn’t happy as a lawyer and began looking for his purpose in life.  At first he had no success in finding a new direction, but through a sudden personal experience, he fell in love with the idea of making a movie about the power of the heart.

Although he had no film making experience, de Pape explained he chose to follow his heart and pursue it anyway which has lead him to experience exactly what the film is about.

“It feels great,” he said. “I have learned to trust my heart’s intuition and I completely trust my heart now.  I have learned that you will never reach your full potential if you don’t open your heart. The heart has an intelligence that far surpasses that of the mind and using this intelligence makes my life more fulfilling and I am more effective and successful because I am using the intelligence of my heart, supported by my mind.”

The “The Power of the Heart” film was released in October 2014, and has had over 4,000 screenings in the United States and Canada this year.
