Warning - This is definitely not for everyone! Restless souls with the attention span of a fly shouldn't bother. But those ready to experience a different kind of "lecture" should know the opportunity they have in attending an event with John De Ruiter. In short, John is what you'd call a philosopher. But his approach differs from everyone I've come across. John's unique and extremely fascinating technique could be summed up like this: Instead of speaking ABOUT the deep state of true being, he speaks FROM it. His public appearances are not just discussions on the topic of oneness and illumination. Instead, he is uncompromisingly dedicated to BE in that state while addressing the audience. Because this is the strongest chance of actually bringing the audience to it, and let the room experience that frequency, and allow the audience to feel it within themselves, instead of merely theorizing around it.
But this is not "entertainment." Nor is it huggy, touchy, feely "New Age." This is live, standup, hard core existentialism on the deepest, most challenging yet rewarding level I've come across in my life's search for the mysterious essence within myself. I used to listen to his cassettes more than fifteen years ago. They had a profoundly, irreversible effect on me. But my friends couldn't stand them. There's a lot of silence in between the talking, and so most of my buddies got restless, fell asleep or started climbing the walls. But for those few souls out there ready to dive deep into their innermost presence; ready to bask in the presence of an uncompromisingly honest force of nature.. Don't miss ❤
