About Us

Disciplined reflection, uniting head and heart. 


To conduct and administer Clinical Pastoral Education, offer continuing education.


Our goal is to encourage personal spiritual enrichment while providing quality Chaplaincy and Pastoral Formation.

CPE is transformational:  Learners lives are often transformed forever.

CPE is clinical:  Where real people interact with real people who are hurting, as opposed to textbook learning.

CPE is a group experience:  Learners come together sharing knowledge and assisting each other in the process.  

CPE is experiential:  The learning occurs upon experiences out in the world.

Core Chaplain Beliefs

The Chaplain is Chaplain to all.  The Chaplain functions from an interfaith, inter denominational, interspiritual, intercommunity, multifaith, interreligious, integral, dialogical approach to ministry with a heavy emphasis on listening.  The pedagogical, andragogical, or teaching, process focuses on the growth of the student, on the path that they are on, and does not attempt to change their path. The Pastoral Care modality taught is one that does not evangelize, nor attempt to convert.


The Graduate Academy of CPE Supervision is located in Tacoma Washington.
