About SelfTalkCenter.com & Jim Van Wyck

Jim Van Wyck
Hi – I’m Jim, creator of this website and author of all the articles.

Hello and welcome to SelfTalkCenter.com.

I’m Jim Van Wyck, and since 1982, I’ve been deeply involved in exploring and teaching meditation and self-talk.

Here’s a more in-depth look into my journey, the community we’ve built together, and the principles that drive this website.

Background & Credentials
From an early age, the workings of the mind, its immense power, and the impact of our internal dialogue intrigued me.

This curiosity didn’t just stop at wonderment; it paved the way for formal education. I pursued and earned a master’s degree in psychology from the prestigious University of Alberta.
This was not merely an academic endeavor. My studies provided a foundation to understand human behavior better, the intricacies of thought patterns, and the undeniable, transformative power of purposeful self-talk.

The Community & Its Reach

Over the years, I’ve had the incredible opportunity to study the mind and share my insights and learnings with a broader audience. Through consistent engagement and genuine connections, our meditation community on Facebook has grown to over 700,000 fans. I’d love you to join me at the Meditation Techniques Daily page.


Additionally, our dedicated meditation group has over 47,000 active members. These numbers are not just statistics; they represent individuals, stories, and transformations. Join my meditation group here.


They signify a shared passion and the countless individuals I’ve had the honor to guide and learn from in the realms of meditation and self-talk.
