For the past 20 years, Michael has integrated his clinical insights into the ministry of discernment in providing spiritual direction. Dr. Hryniuk currently serves as Supervisor of Spiritual Care at the Catholic Children's Aid Society of Hamilton and is in group practice as a psychotherapist with the Institute of Family Living in Toronto, Ontario.

As a Director of Theosis Resources, an independent consulting ministry, Michael has led workshops and retreats at churches, schools, universities and seminaries throughout Canada and the United States.

We believe that Healing our Identity in God as it relates to Shame, Grace and the Ministry of Spiritual Direction is a topic that touches each of our ministries. We will also be discussing the importance of addressing our own feelings of shame as a precursor to providing care to others burdened with feelings of shame and guilt.
