John de Ruiter Podcast
John de Ruiter is a Canadian author and spiritual leader. He holds weekly meetings from his home base in Edmonton, Alberta, where he established the College of Integrated Philosophy in 2006. John has been offering seminars online and in Alberta since 2020, resulting in conversations with people all over the world. As an innovative voice for spiritual evolution, John de Ruiter teaches that life's meaning can be known and lived through "core-splitting honesty," a concept he discovered in his teens after a profound awakening to foundational levels of existence. Ever since, John’s life and teaching have been informed by that direct knowing. His desire to communicate these ideas led to two books, “The Intelligence of Love: Manifesting Your Being in This World” and “Unveiling Reality.” John’s teachings focus on a willingness to let go of your ego and desires: He draws a distinction between your self and your soul, as well as your mind and your being. When teaching a group, John prefers to interact with audience members one-on-one, rather than addressing a whole crowd. This method results in fascinating and intimate dialogues.

Title: Seeing, Knowing, Loving Another

Date: January 31, 2011 Evening - Pardes Hana, Israel

Quote: You need no reward in being what love is, in moving it and in giving it. When you are what love is, you’re not needing its return. Love doesn’t need to be answered. It just quietly and freely gives.

Title: Awareness Planted In Knowing

Date: December 5, 2011 Afternoon - Byron Bay, Australia Seminar

Quote: With a fundamental shift of awareness, having your awareness planted in knowing instead of in the conditioning in your self, you’re no longer attuning to personal need. Need becomes something that’s in your care and it is no longer something that you make personal.
