The College of Pastoral Supervision & Psychotherapy is a theologically based covenant community, dedicated to "recovery of the soul" and promoting competency in the clinical pastoral field.

Daisy Basiliano was a remarkable woman. She was a member of the theological faculty of the Central Philippine University (CPU) in Iloilo, and a clinical pastoral supervisor directing clinical training programs at CPU under the auspices of CPSP. I and others from CPSP have visited Iloilo in recent years and have been graciously hosted by Daisy and the University.
She has directed the clinical pastoral training program for the seminary for a number of years. She was wise beyond her years, and she was exceedingly gracious. Daisy battled cancer during the last several years of her life. She was indomitable. During my third and last visit to her program this past March she was physically a mere shadow of her former self. Cancer had ravaged her body until she was less than half her former size. Nevertheless she carried on energetically for several days of meetings and lectures that she had scheduled during my visit. Subsequently her body failed her, as her family reports. Daisy is irreplaceable. She was a great soul.
Posted are some of the photos taken in 2007, during my first visit. The photos show an impoverished village of rice field workers that were part of Daisy's mission.
The CPSP community has lost a great soul with the death of Daisy Basiliano.
