ACMI Press is a specialty publishing company dedicated to producing contemporary works of high quality in the areas of imagination, imagery, healing, dreams, and spirituality. Our mission is to revive the millennial–old tradition of the imaginal experience in all its manifestations, and make it accessible for all to use in healing and transformation.
This tradition is rooted in the mystical and spiritual teachings of the West as expounded in all three monotheistic traditions. It first appears in the Jewish tradition via the writing of the Biblical Prophets, Rabbi Akiva and Isaac the Blind. It later runs through Christianity via the works of St. Ignatius, St. Hildegard of Bingen, and St. Teresa of Avila. Finally it is passed on in the Islamic mystical thought of Ibn Arabi and Rumi. Today, exponents of this path include, most notably, the late Mme. Colette Aboulker–Muscat of Jerusalem and her students.
We publish books ranging from the therapeutic application of mental (or guided) imagery for healing emotional, physical and topical problems of everyday life to the transformative inner journeys of waking dream. Our books aim to educate you to be a free being by, as Colette phrased it, “climbing the ladder of self mastery.”
