Personal Development & Self-Help

Baptist de Pape had just finished law school and was about to start his legal career when, plagued with doubts about what job to take, he saw an interview of Eckhart Tolle with Oprah Winfrey that changed his path completely. In the clip, Tolle asked that we consider not what we want from life, but what life wants from us. de Pape underwent an epiphany and felt with utter conviction that part of his purpose in life was to investigate the power of the heart and make a film about the power of listening to your heart. He traveled the world interviewing spiritual teachers, who offered answers to existential questions and taught important lessons about the power of the heart, lessons that reveal your hidden talents and qualities and which help you bring out the best in yourself.
Baptist interviewed 18 masters for the book and film - Deepak Chopra, Paulo Coelho, Eckhart Tolle, Marianne William-son, Gary Zukav, Isabel Allende, Jane Goodall, Joe Dis-penza, John Gray, Maya Angelou, Michael Beckwith, Rue-diger Schache, Neale Donald Walsch, Howard Martin, Rollin McCraty, Marci Shimoff, Linda Francis and Dean Schrock. Each has his or her own cultural, philosophical and professional background and helps create a sensational portrait of the heart as an inexhaustible source of love, wisdom and intelligence that far surpasses that of the mind.
