With Carolyn Klassen, a Winnipeg therapist and speaker at Wired for Connection. Her many years of providing therapy provide her with a wealth of knowledge about people—including topics like grief, pain, anxiety, depression, joy, and grace that are not easily or often spoken about in polite company. She has a master’s degree in therapy, is a Certified Daring Way Facilitator, and is elder and teacher at The Meeting Place.
We are created in God’s image for relationships—deep, meaningful and enriching relationships. Yet loneliness and divisiveness feel more pervasive now than ever. Why are relationships both so vital and so challenging? Using work developed out of the research of Dr. Brené Brown, this class will look at themes of vulnerability and shame as a means to discover ways of developing more meaningful relationships. Developing authentic relationships is both terrifying and enriching—it is an act of discipleship as we seek to grow more and more into the likeness of Christ.
