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. READ MORE

CARMELITE BOOK SERVICE was set up as a world-wide mail order service in 1984, (on-line since 1997), to provide all books in print on Carmelite Spirituality to the whole family of Carmel. The aim was to stock all titles so as to be able to supply them without delay. This proved to be a great service to customers, and so the book service has grown and now has over one thousand six hundred titles in stock. These are not only books on Carmelite Spirituality but also the Christian classics, books on the English Spiritual tradition, Celtic Spirituality, Eastern Spirituality and Contemporary Spirituality.
