It’s time to Change

Times are changing. Quickly. And while times are changing, it's time for us to change as well. In case you didn't realize that we live in challenging times, you might not have been paying much attention to what is happening around you. Or you have developed creative...

Deeper Insights offered by the Heart

The qualities of our heart are incredible. When we visit a physician and we get an electric cardiogram taken (ECG), the doctor is measuring an electrical signal produced by our beating heart. The heart is the strongest source of electricity in our bodies. It produces...

Order a Different Energy

From working with veterans who are suffering from post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), I’ve become even more fascinated with the relationship between human emotions and our physiology. It’s amazing to witness how events that once deeply impacted us on an emotional...

The Magic of Creating

Since I was a child, I have always loved creating new experiences. And I still do. It’s an expression of my curiosity and it brings out the aliveness in me, something that we’re all born with and long for, in one way or the other. When I was about 5 years old, I was...

MISSION

My name is Dirk Terpstra. I am an Intuitive Speaker – Inspirator – Coach and HeartMath® Certified Trainer, and my passion (and mission) is to inspire you to become more deeply connected to who you truly are so that you can become the most beautiful version of yourself. Isn’t that an incredible gift that you can offer yourself and those around you?

We are part of a society that teaches us the principle of ’cause and effect’ so well that most people have learned to mainly react to the circumstances in their life, while everyone has the opportunity and the capacity to create their own, amazing and more fulfilling life – just by being who you truly are. In quantum physics this is called ‘causing an effect’.

Personally, I believe that the secret lies in hitting the brakes, really slowing down and learning to understand ourselves better. You can only be at peace, feel fulfilled and be valuable to others, when you are honest with yourself and start closing the gap between who you appear to be and who you really are. You will then discover that you are beautiful and that all the answers already lie inside of you.

HEARTMATH® CERTIFIED TRAINER

As a HeartMath® Certified Trainer, I help individuals and organizations connect with the heart – who we truly are – which enables them to live healthier, more productive, happier and more fulfilling lives while building a brighter future. Simple, yet powerful tools developed by the Institute of HeartMath® enable us to gain more coherence and resiliency – on the go! – in your daily life. More information about the trainings here.
Since 1991, the Institute of HeartMath® has been conducting scientific research into the effects of the electromagnetic heart field on the brain and body. Their research has found that a ‘coherent’ heart rhythm has many benefits for the body and mind, including more energy, ease, ability to think more clearly, and increased communication skills.
As a result, the Institute developed a set of tools and techniques clinically proven to create coherence, ease, and inner balance and measurably reduce stress hormones such as cortisol. The more you practice them, the greater the cumulative effect.

I apply this expertise in my private trainings and public events, but I also work as a HeartMath® specialist for the Operational Stress Recovery Program in the Okanagan Valley. This program is endorsed by the Canadian Veterans Advocacy.

REWIRE THE TRAUMATIZED BRAIN

Through my training The Neurobiology of Trauma with Bessel van der Kolk MD, I learned applying the latest strategies to speed healing and I help reduce symptoms for even the most traumatized clients. Bessel van der Kolk is a highly-respected neuroscientist and Professor of Psychiatry at Boston University Medical School. He is also the Medical Director of the Trauma Center.

“My colleague and I attended a Full day “Power of the Mind and Heart” Workshop with Dirk & Angelo. What a fabulous day ! The presenters were both passionate about the subject and dedicated to the students. We both felt extremely comfortable in the setting and with the presenters. I felt that they really cared about us as individuals and our needs.
We were left with a great sense of peace and a renewed feeling of self worth! I felt we had a deeper understanding of our emotions and how they impact our physical and emotional wellbeing. We were also given the opportunity to share our stories and look into our future ventures, keeping in mind how to open our hearts and work with our thoughts.
I was so impressed that I am considering a full weekend retreat for our staff at the beautiful peaceful setting with 2 great leaders in obtaining a meaningful balance life.
Thank you gentlemen.
PS. The organic lunch prepared by Sheila was amazing!”

Shift from reacting to creating!

Secret to Life

I believe that the secret to life lies in hitting the breaks, really slowing down and learning to understand ourselves better. You can only be at peace and feel fulfilled, when you are honest with yourself and start closing the gap between who you appear to be and who you really are. You will then discover that you are beautiful.
