Concinnity Magazine is dedicated to a great number of people – most of whom know each other because of John de Ruiter.  This lovely big group consists of hundreds, who come from from all over the world and from diverse backgrounds to spend time with John. The doors are open to anyone who feels drawn to attend; along with the familiar faces, there are always new people arriving, and visitors coming and going…and so much to talk about in the “Jewel Cafe”.  The golden thread that binds us all together is a consistent response to ‘the calling’  and the deepest love – for John, each other, and for all beings.

Your comments and suggestions are always welcome, and so are your stories, poems, photos and artwork.

All the best to you from
Heather Harmony O’Hara,

Note: “Concinnity” means harmony in the arrangement of all parts of a whole, with respect to each other and to the whole.  It is also described as a studied elegance and style of expression, particularly in a dialogue.  (John used the word several years ago as he spoke about “inner concinnity”  and “fine, stylized, concinnious walk within.”)
