John de Ruiter Events

About John de Ruiter

Spiritual pioneer, John de Ruiter is an author and teacher based in Edmonton, Canada. John, who’s message that life’s meaning can only be truly lived through “core-splitting honesty,” makes himself available at weekly meetings, multi-day seminars and other social events. COVID Update: Currently, John is available through weekly interactive live stream meetings and multi-day Intensives on Zoom.

John’s message is for those with a sense of deeper purpose, not satisfied by pursuing a better life through worldly or even spiritual endeavors. Though many who yearn for meaning, have experienced some form of awakening, whether subtle or profoundly consuming, it is only a first step. To John, awakening and even enlightenment, are of little value when compared to purity of heart. He describes a pure heart as one that’s not filled with the wants and needs of your self, but one that remains open and soft in any circumstance and importantly, at any personal cost. It is this fundamental way of being that is able to transcend the conditioning of our selves, our genetics, and our life circumstances, no matter how difficult.

John founded The College of Integrated Philosophy in Edmonton, Canada as a home base to facilitate his weekly meetings, seminars, and special events. These meetings and events are open to anyone interested in the ‘more’ of human consciousness. Events with John have been held all over the world, for the last 20 years including regular trips to the USA, Europe, Israel and India.

COVID Update: Currently, live in-person meetings with John in Edmonton and overseas are on hold until Covid restrictions allow such gatherings.

Bio

The son of Dutch immigrants to Stettler, Alberta, John de Ruiter learned shoe repair when he was a boy, eventually becoming a skilled orthopedic shoe maker.

Initially, John was more interested in adventure and exploring the outdoors, than reflecting on profound realizations. That changed when he had an immense awakening at the age of 17. Other dimensions flooded John’s being and he saw that his life would be absorbed by what he had come to know.

To gain a deeper understanding of this awakening, John devoted himself to spiritual studies, eventually spending a brief time working as a junior pastor at an Edmonton church. John ultimately realized that his spiritual calling would require an altogether different way of meeting.

John began gathering with small groups of people in his home, where he unveiled realities and spoke to the hearts and minds of those who were drawn to his profound words and uncommon presence. Today, thousands of people all over the world have attended John de Ruiter’s events and continue to do so via interactive live streams..

“What I’m doing in this life is most unusual. I’m really clear about that and all of the choices that I’ve made are based on what I know. None of this stands on appearances. None of this is based on what it looks like and what it sounds like. I’m not here teaching, creating a following and a community. I'm here to move and manifest what I come from. No more. I lead you into what you will know after death. It is your healing, the world's answer. If you hear it, you are called. If you respond, you are needed. Truth is not a mystery - its greatest secrets are yours to know through simple honesty and surrender to what that honesty reveals” –John de Ruiter
