Robert Laynton has spent over fifty years exploring spirituality. He gained an Honours degree in psychology and post graduate Certificate and Diploma qualifications in counselling. For a time he was a member of the British Psychological Society and has contributed to their Transpersonal Psychology Journal. His books and blog entries are mainly focused on Christianity – drawing as they do from his personal studies and experience – though he sometimes also refers to other religious and spiritual traditions, to ‘Inner Spiritual’ or mystical traditions and to psychology. He worked for over thirty years in the ceramic industry and for over fifteen years in retail. He is now retired and lives in North Staffordshire in the United Kingdom.
