A gathering place for enquiry, connection and realization.
John opened The College of Integrated Philosophy in Edmonton to facilitate weekly meetings, seminars, and special events. The purpose of The College is to make John and his teachings available, furthering the evolution of human consciousness. The environment reflects the delicateness, simplicity, and depth of John’s teaching.
The College depends on staff and volunteers with the support of those who attend meetings with John. The College features The Jewel Cafe where people speak with John in a more relaxed setting. Other events held at The College include monthly film viewings, garden parties, and the two finest – the Western Style Barbecue and the New Year’s Eve celebration. Trust, sincerity and respect uplift the social environment around meetings with John. The vitality of the community comes from a shared interest in profound integrity and evolution.Learn More

Fridays, Sundays, and Mondays, about 300 people get together at The College, for coffee, tea, dining, and meetings of profound inner realization. Meetings vary each week, with new insights in dialogue and silence.
Meetings are a unique opportunity for awakening and growth, to see new depths in you and witness other people learning, opening, and healing. These meetings can be the encounter of a lifetime — and they take place every week.
John’s seminars include multiple meetings over several days with time also spent in The Cafe. Over this extended time, themes develop as questioners draw from previous talks. Like the threads of discussion, the energy grows as well. The result is a culminating occurrence of profound meaning.
