Canadian Philosopher John de Ruiter is an innovative voice for spiritual evolution, teaching that life's meaning can be known and lived through "core-splitting honesty." In his teens, John awakened to foundational levels of existence. Ever since, his life and teaching have been informed by that direct knowing, a true inspiration that he encourages in others. 

 

John's meetings include silence, connection by eye-contact, and dialogue. They are an opportunity to come to rest while actively realizing deeper levels of being human, knowing what we really are, and allowing that greater reality to change our lives.
