Biography: 

J.M. Harrison is an Award Winning Author and Amazon #1 Best Seller of Spirituality who writes to support the blossoming and expansion of human consciousness. Born in southern England in the mid 60's, by the early 1980's Jonathan's deep love of music was expressed through contemporary singing and song-writing. In 1987, Jonathan underwent a short stint as the lead singer of Frankie Goes To Hollywood following the departure of lead vocalist Holly Johnson. At the close of his pop music career in 1990 he was awarded a gold disc for his lead vocals on the Telstar compilation album "Get on This 2", which sold over 100,000 copies, going to number 2 in the UK album charts. From '97 onwards he underwent a series of phenomena and transformational experiences which radically altered his consciousness, causing him to look closely at human identity, making him aware of what he describes as the "Divine I-less nature of reality". Never having written before, and in the days following a mystical death experience in 2007, he penned his first book ‘We Are All One: A Call to Spiritual Uprising’. Written in just six days, the critically acclaimed book was the WINNER of the 2009 Allbooks International Editor's Choice Award (USA) in the Spirituality & Inspiration category. In January 2009 he was invited to teach alongside Barbara Marx Hubbard, Esther Hicks (Abraham, Law of Attraction, and The Secret), Dr. Bruce Lipton, Steve and Barbara Rother (Lightworker.com) and others on www.worldchangingwisdom.com - subsequently he was offered his own seminar series with US company Conscious Alliances. Jonathan's second book 'Naked Being: Undressing Your Mind, Transforming Your Life' - was published by O books on the 28th May 2010. Further kudos followed when it was honoured as a Best Books Award Finalist 2010 (USA Book News) in the genre of Spirituality. Many articles, poems and quotes of his work have appeared in magazines and associated websites worldwide. Over the years he has been appeared in; Kindred Spirit Magazine, Watkins Magazine, Cosmic Lighthouse, Mystic Pop, Yoga Magazine, Paradigm Shift, High Spirit Magazine, Nonduality.com, Searchlighton.com and more. An article on 'Naked Being' was published in the highly respected Watkins Review in early 2012. Over the years, Jonathan has made numerous media appearances in Europe and the US, including a one hour interview with Iain McNay on Conscious TV in 2011. From 2010 onwards Jonathan took on the role as the Managing Director of Gaunts House in Dorset, England - one of the largest spiritual retreat centres in the United Kingdom. During years of financial recession and under his directorship the charitable foundation blossomed, until his departure in the spring of 2014. The synchronicities of the journeying soul have teamed him up with Kate Osborne, former international magazine editor and founder of the inspiring Solarus Foundation. Jonathan has recently collaborated with Grammy Award winning Composer Richard Theisen. Together, they have recorded and arranged music and chants Jonathan intuitively 'heard' in southern France whilst writing his visionary fiction novel 'The Soul Whisperer'. The material is being recorded at 528 Hz, a frequency where the words, music and 'classical' tone converge and penetrate deep into the recesses of the sub-conscious mind, promoting well-being, healing and transformation. 2016 promises to be a busy year for Jonathan. Jan 29th sees the release of his newest spiritual non-fiction title YOU are THIS: Awakening to the Living Presence of Your Soul which is published by MANTRA. The book explains Jonathan’s philosophy of the Soul, or what he calls One-Duality, and provides genuine tools to support the reader in recognizing, realizing and actualizing the living presence of their Soul. Early reviews are very positive; • "...a spiritual classic ... this knowledge is too good not to be shared!" • "This is not another `self-help' book. This is an invitation to an internalized map of being." • "The author is clearly an expert regarding this subject matter & in my view qualifies as a modern day mystic." On Feb 26th his novel of visionary fiction THE SOUL WHISPERER: A Tale of Hidden Truths & Unspoken Possibilities is being published by Roundfire Books. A spiritual tale designed to support conscious evolution, the book has already received great reviews on Goodreads Most recently, Jonathan has appeared on InspireMeToday.com (Dec 2015), and a NYC Metro exclusive rights article on the Soul is due for release in Feb 2016 through CREATIONS MAGAZINE.
