Anton Jarrod is a writer, researcher and thinker specialising in the subject of consciousness.
His main areas of research and interest are higher consciousness, 'modern spirituality' and spiritual development. He has a particular expertise in the writings of Martinus (1890-1981), an important but still not very well-known visionary writer from Denmark. He writes from a non-religious, non-physicalist perspective and worldview.
His academic background is in the humanities and social sciences, with degrees from UCL and LSE in London. He started a PhD in Sociology at the University of Cambridge in 2018, researching contemporary spirituality, unemployment and well-being.
His first book, Martinus Cosmology and Spiritual Evolution, was published in 2017. It introduces the main ideas and teachings of Martinus as they are applied to the Gospel narratives. You can purchase a personalised copy from this website, and buy the book from stores worldwide, as well as read an extract, by clicking the link. You can also listen to an interview with Anton about Martinus's original contributions here.
Anton is an experienced practitioner of a modern approach to spiritual development. He writes and speaks about his exploration in this area, and many other topics related to it, through his videos and writings, all of which are available on this site.
Over the years, I’ve learned that the development of 'consciousness’ and ‘spirituality’ can be approached in a practical, rational way. It would be deceptive to say this is easy and straightforward! Yet, it would also be foolish to say that it is impossible or hard to understand. (Anton Jarrod, 2020)
In 2018, he made a short video series in which he talked about his spiritual journey, which you can see below. A new short film about some key aspects of his spiritual life and experience of higher consciousness will be released this year and made available on this site.
