Oates Institute
The Oates Institute is dedicated to delivering world-class seminars that weave together the disciplines of spiritual care, health and wellness, psychology, and more.

Welcome to the Oates Institute!

You’re entering a unique global learning community for spiritual and pastoral care. Here, you’ll find colleagues, collaborators, and facilitators committed to exploring the integration of spirituality, psychology, medicine, and ethics. You’ll delve into relevant topical research. Learn practical strategies you can implement. And grow professionally and personally, earning continuing education credits. For more than 20 years, the Oates Institute has offered thought provoking online seminars presented by facilitators who challenge and inspire, often leading discussions into new and uncharted areas as we collectively work to raise the standard of spiritual care. We invite you to explore our website and our
offerings and see how you can bring new dimensions to the spiritual care you provide.
