New downloads


Understanding the Soul download transspaser

Understanding the Soul (PDF download)

A poetic exploration

Joy Mead

Digital download: Joy Mead contemplates the nature of the soul, interspersed with some of her poems.

‘I begin to understand the soul not by turning to an otherworldly realm or retreating into what the mind can cope with but by standing still and looking around at things, at light and shade, at people …’

You … you’re another me.
Me … I’m another you;
we’re neither subject
nor object. We’re one
with each other
and the world.
On this sense of equality
our survival may depend.

Some books on healing


Praying for the Dawn transspaser

Praying for the Dawn

A resource book for the ministry of healing

(Book and e-book)

Ruth Burgess & Kathy Galloway

The ministry of healing plays a vital and central part in the life of the Iona Community. It is a ministry in which justice is as important as medicine, reverence for the earth is as vital as respect for the individual person and the health of the body politic matters as much as the health of the body personal. In addition to giving a taste of the background, context and range of this work, Praying for the Dawn offers detailed resources for those who wish to introduce the ministry of healing to their own churches or groups but are unsure of where to start.

Jesus’ Healing Works and Ours transspaser

Jesus’ Healing Works and Ours

(Book and e-book)

Ian Cowie

Ian Cowie re-translates the original Greek of the Gospels and sheds new light on what the healing miracles of Jesus were and what they mean for us. He concludes that there is no justification for saying that ‘miracles’ break the laws of nature, but that such events are a natural result of using untapped human and divine resources in a universe that is totally consistent.

In a very direct and informative way, the author carefully dissects the actions and words of Jesus in each healing incident and draws conclusions which are often at odds with current perceptions and interpretations.
