Krispin Mayfield is a licensed therapist residing in Portland OR. His book Attached to God: A Practical Guide to Deeper Spiritual Experience is a wonderful introduction to attachment theory, but it is also an exploration of the spiritual and religious traditions of Christianity through the lens of attachment theory. His insights interrogate many of the theological and ethical teachings that have been prominent in some circles of Christianity, and he shows how they are received by the various attachment strategies that people use. He then uses this understanding to illuminate a pathway towards healing, healthier relationships, and the experience of true belonging.
Via Media’s pursuit of curiosity and hope is profoundly enhanced by our understanding of attachment science.
