The Artist, Alma Rumball:
Alma’s family pioneered in Muskoka Ontario in the
1870’s, where she lived most of her life. In the 1950’s,
following a vision of Jesus, she became a clairvoyant recluse,
, creating prolific, intricate, colored pen and ink drawings,
born of a rich inner life. She watched as “The Hand”
drew by itself, unfamiliar forms, faces, characters, separate
from her consciousness. Tibetan gods, Joan of Arc figures
and tales of Atlantis revealed themselves. As a Christian,
she never claimed credit nor understanding. She said she
didn’t do them - “The Hand” did. They
have been called the sacred

Wendy Oke is married to Alma’s nephew, and in 1972
was given the soul mission by Alma’s ‘genius’
guide, Aba Pasha, to ‘take the drawings to the world’.
A retired teacher, counselor and writer, Wendy has done
presentations of Alma’s art and writings for 32 years.
An award-winning, televised documentary, The Alma Drawings
has gone global on the Spiritual Cinema Circle DVD. As an
ordained Spiritual Peace Minister with James Twyman’s
Beloved Community, she marries couples in Ontario, Canada.

Alma’s images and their overlay with the Emissary
Wheel qualities invite people to use the artwork as meditation
tools to acquire the desired attributes. E.g. courage, patience,
wisdom, certainty, compassion, joy, clarity, understanding,
depth, generosity, abundance, agape. There is a resonance
between James’ source for teachings in The Art of
Spiritual Peacemaking, Yeshua ben Joseph, and the teachings
offered by Alma’s Jesus figure. The similarities are
explored in Wendy’s workshops. James owns the Joan
of Arc drawing.
A deepening of this
connection happened on the trip to Egypt and Israel with
James, following the path of Moses, leading the Hebrews
out of bondage to the Promised Land. The essence of the
Jesus energy there penetrated Wendy’s consciousness,
reinforcing the connection between the two teachings.
