ABOUT TERESIAN MEDIA PUBLICATIONS (TMP)
The Teresian Media Publications, based in Boars Hill, Oxford, is the publishing house of the Discalced Carmelite friars of Great Britain and Ireland. It serves to promote the collective wisdom of our Carmelite tradition through print, audio and video productions. Our publications comprise prayerful reflections on Scripture, the teachings of our saints, and accounts of the experience of prayer. We have brought out titles on Teresa of Avila, John of the Cross, Thérèse of Lisieux and Elizabeth of the Trinity, and our books are regularly reprinted and translated into other languages.
TMP is an integrated network of our quarterly “Mount Carmel” magazine, the “ABCS” Series, Teresian Press, Teresian Media digital productions and the Carmelite Book Service.
MOUNT CARMEL is a quarterly review of the spiritual life. Its aims are to help people in every aspect of their lives by sharing and exploring with them the rich sources of Carmelite teaching on prayer within the broad perspective of Christian spirituality and life experience.
The APPLIED BIBLICAL CONTEMPLATIVE SPIRITUALITY SERIES (The ABCS Series) features titles on biblical Carmelite themes and their application to lived experience. This Series is an imprint of the Centre for Applied Carmelite Spirituality (CACS). CACS is a ministry of the Discalced Carmelite friars of the Anglo-Irish Province which promotes research, publications and training in the field of Applied Carmelite Spirituality and related topics with the aim of popularising and promoting Carmelite spirituality and the life of prayer. CACS also holds the annual Scripture and Contemplative Spirituality Conference (SCSC) and publishes its proceedings.
TERESIAN PRESS books and booklets (including the ‘Living Flame’ imprint) are Carmelite literature, the aim of which is to popularise and promote Carmelite spirituality and the life of prayer at very affordable prices.

We also have three very popular presentations of the saints by Fr Eugene McCaffrey, OCD, including an introduction to Elizabeth of the Trinity which contains numerous photographs from the Carmel of Dijon, and a two-volume work on the spiritual itinerary of Elizabeth by Joanne Mosley, for the general reader and researchers alike. Our other authors include Fr Iain Matthew, OCD, already well known for The Impact of God on St John of the Cross, and Fr Conrad De Meester, OCD, the foremost authority on St Elizabeth and Brother Lawrence, with a brief guide to Carmelite prayer (forthcoming) and Fr James McCaffrey.
