About the Author

Peter Mark Tyler is Senior Lecturer and Programme Director of Pastoral Theology at St Mary's University College, Twickenham. He has had a long interest in the works of St John of the Cross and regularly leads pilgrimage retreats to the sites associated with the saint in Spain. His doctoral work combined his interest in mystical theology with psychology and philosophy and he is a registered psychotherapist in private practice.
