Our Story

“The prophet is not an outsider throwing rocks, nor a comfortable insider who defends the status quo; but one who lives precariously with two perspectives held tightly together in a loving and creative tension: the faithful insider and the critical outsider. ”

Attuning to the Heartbeat of a Hurting World

At The Seattle School of Theology & Psychology, we train people to attune to the heartbeat of a hurting world, knowing that this can only happen when we are also attuned to our own heartbeats—the joy, pain, grief, and hope of what it means to be human. Our entire learning model is grounded in that conviction.

Learning Takes Your Whole Body

We live in a complex world. Engaging the beauty, complexity, and brokenness in ourselves and in the people around us requires a new kind of education—one that is robustly Christian, deeply questioning, and profoundly human. If you are seeking to deepen your capacity to work as a therapist, pastor, artist, leader, or healer, we invite you to join us at the intersection of text, soul, and culture.

“My professors at The Seattle School are not only invested in my classroom learning, but in my becoming more fully who I am, and doing that with grace and patience. I feel called to work with people in such a way that it leads unto joy — and not cheap joy. My primary excitement is being alongside people during the impossible work of lament. ”
