WHAT OUR STUDENTS SAY
Participating in CPE provided me with the opportunity to experience my own and other’s spirituality through relationship. This was done in an environment that allowed us to connect with the sacredness of ‘being with’ each other, both in the group and with patients.
CPE is an experiential program which provided me with a circle of trust for personal growth and exploration. This helped me to be a better chaplain through recognizing my own biases and motivations. CPE was about relationship building and learning about myself with a bit of practical stuff thrown in. It was also a place where I gained knowledge and learning from psychology, sociology and anthropology, providing a solid grounding for pastoral practice.
