John is an extremely capable teacher and counselor in many life issues as well as spiritual matters. His extensive background in Christianity/Bible studies as well as longtime personal studies and practice in various far-Eastern religions and philosophies makes John rather uniquely suited to interpretation and application of Yoga, Buddhist and other practices for an American audience who are typically brought up within the Christian tradition and/or Western thought processes. His ability to draw from various writings and integrate these into an actionable teaching is truly remarkable.In my case, John has guided me to establish a more effective daily practice routine as well as to substantially improve my confidence, faith and relationships, all in which I have had lifelong difficulties. I have had many experiences over my 59 years with various counselors, therapists and spiritual teachers, and while many of these experiences were very enlightening, with John I have had more success in practical application and ACTION to effect change in my life. John is very insightful and has the ability to look deep inside you, asking the right questions to ascertain your beliefs, then can relate his understanding and recommendations in a deeply profound way that is beyond what I have previously experienced. The difference for me is the ability to not only call out my B.S., but also to reach me at a level to help me transcend it.
When I get off track, he is able to get me right back on it.
John Pellicci is an epic human and ACIM teacher. He’s all-in from every angle, truly connected. I’m thankful for every learning experience I spend with him because I know I will become a better human/spirit as a result. And, it will be a deep and inspiring experience. His depth of knowledge and spirit is awesome.
John has vast experience in multiple spiritual teachings. He is truly a gifted speaker, and a guide to the divine ground of existence.
I have had the pleasure of knowing John Pellicci for one and a half years and during that time he has amazed me in a number of ways, all positively. While it has been a relatively short period of time, John is the type of person you feel you’ve known for ever, even after just a brief period of time.
I first met him at Kula Yoga Shala where he taught yogic philosophy both to small group classes as well as to the semi-annual teacher training. I was so taken with his abilities that I asked if he would be my private tutor, and I’m happy to say that he said yes.
As I got to know John better I learned a lot about him, all favorable. He is one of the most intelligent people I’ve ever met. I’m not certain of this, but it seems as if he has essentially memorized almost every line of every book on his extensive bookshelf. When a concept is entertained he is universally able to reach for a book, thumb immediately to the proper page, and read the sentence that he was looking for, all in a matter of moments. However, this is merely one of the foundational aspects that make him so special!
He has taken that encyclopedic knowledge and has applied it to all aspects of his life. He truly is interested in the welfare of all people, starting from his friends and family to the general population at large. He is amazingly introspective, and acts with precision and intention, always in the direction of the better for himself and others.
His educational abilities are second to none, and I can recommend him to anyone who is interested in improving themselves in any way.
John Pellicci has been my teacher and spiritual mentor for a year. As an experienced teacher I well know what goes into inspired teaching and this is what he has unfailingly given me. His reading in his subjects has great depth and breadth. John is unstinting, inspired, and tireless in his sensitivity to what is the next step in learning. While I take breaks occasionally to absorb and consider, I find myself returning to him for the high of discovery and the subsequent synthesis of understanding. He is a truly great teacher.
John’s brilliant ability to comprehend and integrate divine teachings is a rare and powerful gift. We are so fortunate! As a teacher and spiritual guide, he has helped me actually incorporate these teachings into my daily life, which is now filled with more joy, clarity and gratitude than ever before.
I felt stuck in my study and practice of ACIM. A handful of private sessions with John gave me enormous clarity. He quickly helped me identify my major blocks, and then jumped to the perfect text quotes for healing messages. He basically develops an abridged ACIM just for you and your current level of insight! I still listen to our session recordings regularly. They always return a smile to my face and peace in my heart.
John Pellicci has the gift of letting you see the greatest wisdom available from the major traditions in the world and guide you to apply it in your daily living. Everyone would benefit from having John as a spiritual director as he is able to open up your own tradition for you and place it within the larger mosaic of practical spirituality from all the traditions. John operates at a frequency held by the highest spiritual leaders anywhere and has harnessed a strength and peace in me that I did not know was possible and has thus changed my life.
