About John

John de Ruiter

John is a spiritual pioneer, teaching that life’s meaning can be known and lived through “core-splitting honesty.” In his teens, John awakened to fundamental levels of reality. Ever since, his life and teaching have been informed by that direct knowing, a true inspiration that he encourages in those he meets. John’s meetings include silence, connection by eye contact, and dialogue. They are an opportunity to come to rest while actively realizing deeper subtleties of being human, knowing what we really are and allowing that reality to change our lives.

Teachings

John speaks about consciousness, about the world, and profound awakening. His meetings also explore practical topics such as relationship, parenting and emotion. However, the heart of every teaching and meeting is the fundamental presence of knowing. Knowing, the link between consciousness and truth, is always discernible within profound honesty. Knowing is the only sure ground, the great healer, the doorway to meaning.

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…”
