Ann Thakkar

Scholar-in-Residence
BA (University of Western Ontario); MCS (Regent College); DMin (Carey Theological College)

Dr. Ann Thakkar is a recent graduate from Carey Theological College where her research focused on the relationship between spiritual formation and suffering. She is continuing this work as a Scholar-in-Residence at Regent College, exploring each Christian’s need to enter into and walk alongside others suffering as Jesus did. The dimensions of her research include how embodied and historical practices of faith prepare believers for the challenges of suffering, how suffering is understood in a variety of Christian contexts, and how the church has historically responded to suffering.

Ann has taught in schools and churches on suffering, grief, practices of prayer, and biblical reading. She has also worked as a spiritual director. Ann has recently sold her home in Calgary and is the process of discerning where her next 'home' will be located. She has two adult children.
