About John

  • Very Short 140 Characters

    John’s sole purpose is to be in life, what we are after we've died, existing as a resource for those who recognize and are given to the same.

  • Shorter 230 Characters

    At 17, John was awakened, immersed, and fully absorbed into what we are after we die. Irrevocably changed, he knew that his sole purpose was living as that, existing as a resource for those who recognize and are given to the same.

  • Short 250 Characters

    John’s sole purpose is to be in life what we are after we've died. He lives as that, through openness and softness of heart and core-splitting honesty at any personal cost, existing as a resource for those who recognize and are given to the same.

  • Medium 776 Characters

    At the age of 17 John’s life was irrevocably changed. He describes being awakened, immersed and fully absorbed into what we are after we die. Having immediately turned into what he had awakened to, John knew that living as that, was the sole purpose of his existence. Living exclusively as openness and softness of heart through core-splitting honesty at any personal cost, John exists as a resource to anyone who recognizes, and is given to the same. “In meeting with another person, a connection takes place and in that, I’m able to actualize what we are after we die in them by directly transferring and opening it in their experience. Once experienced, their direct knowledge of this takes root and can continue to grow as they respond to and live by the truth they know.”

  • Full 2395 Characters

    At the age of 17, John’s life was irrevocably changed. He describes being awakened, immersed and fully absorbed into what we are after we die. Having immediately turned into what he had awakened to, John knew that living as that, while existing as a resource for others was the sole purpose of his life. John realized that when you are deeply gentled and quieted within you are naturally open and soft, the most basic form of true beingness and that living this way at any personal cost is the key to the fulfillment of our purpose for being here.

    “When you are honest to the core, you no longer believe what you want to be true, need to be true, or wish were true.” Informed exclusively by a deeper direct knowledge, core-splitting honesty, as John describes it, is untouched by self-interest, splitting through the core of false beliefs.

    Living this way at any personal cost means that regardless of how you are treated, regardless of what happens to you, you will not leave openness and softness of heart to protect your sense of ‘Me’. Valuing openness and softness of heart and core-splitting honesty above all else, costs you a personal life of self-satisfaction.

    “I live as this, actualizing the same in others, while being available as a resource for anyone who recognizes and is given to the same. In meeting with another person, a connection takes place and in that, I’m able to actualize what we are after we die in them by directly transferring and opening it in their experience. Once experienced, their direct knowledge of this takes root and can continue to grow as they respond to and live by the truth they know.”

    For the last thirty years John has been sharing his knowledge from his home base in Edmonton, Alberta, establishing the College of Integrated Philosophy in 2006. He makes himself available at weekly meetings and multi-day seminars there, as well as holding seminars all over the world.

    There are many opportunities to meet and speak to John in person, from conversations on meal breaks between scheduled meetings, to a wide range of social gatherings that he regularly attends. “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.”

Media Appearances

Ridder Radio Interview

Prior to his meetings in The Netherlands, John was interviewed by Ojas de Ronde on the Ridder Radio web broadcast show The New Human. The broadcast included a live chat room where those tuning in could submit questions for John…

New Dimensions Radio

I’ve been going to teachings by a vast array of marvelous teachers for more than 40 years, but I’d never experienced anything quite like this one. Actually, looking back on it, I’m glad I wasn’t prepared with some preconceived notion of who he is and how he teaches…

Honesty is the Best Policy

Canadian John de Ruiter fits the form of the modern philosopher: neat suit and beard, serious look in the eyes and precise in speech. Yet he is not an everyday man. Far from it. Apart from his message, John’s mere presence moves people, as it did in Amsterdam last August…

Living as Profound Honesty

John de Ruiter is a Canadian born author and spiritual teacher, who addresses audiences worldwide from “core-splitting honesty” and the oneness that began as “unconditional, innermost surrender and servitude to Truth…”

Love Me Tender

I try to chat casually with John about this and that, about different teachers, the spiritual path. ‘If I read another spiritual book, I’ll be sick!’ My God, what am I saying? But it’s OK, everyone laughs, the tension breaks. I finish my meal and the breakfast things are cleared away. I set up my recording machine. People fade back into other rooms. The door closes. Silence…

Seen Through and Through

The first time I met John de Ruiter was in 2008. It was at a seminar in Copenhagen. A woman was asking John questions and he said nothing at all. It was obvious that they communicated beyond words. Half of the assembly seemed, however, very frustrated. I, on the other hand, entered a very, very deep and nurturing black stillness…

There is No Path To Walk

The line from Edmonton, Canada is somewhat noisy, but the deep and pleasant voice of John de Ruiter does deliver a sharp and clear message across the Atlantic: “It’s tragic and comical that we, in fact, experience our true nature every single day, but still are estranged from it and therefore search for it as if it needs to be found…”

John on his Philosophy

Excerpt from an interview with John by Holger Petersen from Spirit TV on June 7, 2012. “We have identities, we all grow up with concepts of who we are.These concepts become very dense. It’s through these concepts that we relate to ourselves and we relate to each other…”
