February 23, 2019 - Cultivating Resilience - A One Day Conference
Tickets: Link in bio
JULIE ROHR is a collector of memories, a photographer, mother, stepmother, wife, writer, and community advocate.
Her family are the loves of her life, and she always enjoys spending time with her husband, David, and their two boys - Jacob, 11, and Max, 9. The family can often be found at events around the city, including lots of indoor and outdoor soccer games, festivals, and concerts. They also LOVE the Oilers and can often be found cheering their favourite team on while watching the game in the living room with friends. Julie and David are passionate about supporting local restaurants, artists, musicians and writers, and have built many friendships with the community around them in this way. They have always been the type of family to see a need, and try to meet that need.
In November of 2015, Julie was diagnosed with a rare disease called Leiomyosarcoma, a cancer of the soft tissue. About one in one million people will get this exact diagnosis, so treatment options are minimal as most doctors don't have the resources to research such a rare cancer. Since 2015, Julie has undergone three extensive surgeries to her abdomen, liver and lung, as well as two rounds of radiation and other ongoing treatments and scans. Unfortunately, despite surgical interventions, the cancer continues to metastasize. Julie believes in the power of faith and the power of the brain to heal, and is exploring how that looks in her life now, and the lives of those around her. She is a firm believer in resilience, and is sharing her journey with others in order to offer some of her experience and what she's learned along the way.
[Turning Great Tragedy into Unshakable Triumph]
I'm so excited to share this very powerful (and empowering!) podcast episode with all of you.
When two people who have defied death come together to share wisdom, there is bound to be a lot of value and insight for everyone who listens.
That is what happened when @aaronkeithhawkins
and I teamed up to record this episode for his Unbreakable Success podcast.
I'll let Aaron's words do the talking: "I do believe that we all benefit from some of the very special individuals among us who face seemingly unbearable situations, thrive through them, then selflessly share their journey so that we can better understand how it's possible to endure even the worst of days. "When we're willing to authentically share our challenges with each other, we unleash our ability to defy common logic, spark self-reflection, and strengthen our ability to face even our toughest days. "Case in point, my friend Joscelyn Duffy." Thanks Aaron! :) LISTEN IN at https://aaronkeithhawkins.com/joscelyn-duffy/
and let us know what golden nuggets of wisdom you pick up from the show!

My Desire Map coaching is OPEN!
This year, let’s turn traditional New Year’s goal setting on its head. This weekend on January 12th is the date when all New Years Resolutions fail. National Quitters Day!! Let this be the end of revolution-ditching by February. Here’s how: instead of talking about external goals, I want you to discover how you want to feel in various parts of your life.
Before you set your resolutions — the things you hope to attain, achieve, and accomplish — first, think about how you want those things to make you feel. Let this be the year you create your life with pure and powerful intention.
You’ll get clear on the root of your desire and create a map of how you desire to feel in five areas of your life. From that place of clarity, you’ll be guided to discover and declare your core desired feelings, all while being supported by me in a sacred, loving environment.
Every activity and exercise supports you in discovering your core desired feelings, because something magical happens when you focus on how you want to feel. Decisions will be easier to make. You’ll know when to say “No, thank-you” and “Hell, yes!” You’ll be more optimistic, more openhearted. Your life will ease up on the grinding and and fill up with more…ease. 2019 is yours.
I want to help you design a life that feels good: when you wake up, when you go to work, when you cook dinner, create something. The Desire Map has changed the way I live my life, and I am so thrilled to share this experience with you.
I’d be honored to support you in doing everything that makes you come alive with my coaching sessions. Hand in hand, we got this!
Love, Ana Maria

Too early to comprehend the battlefield, I walked along Cornell Road at dawn, cradling my injury, when I saw a dragon, head raised to the gray sky. Its wings were burned and its flesh was charred. Its tail, once powerful, was cut and fallen. Its trunk was arched skyward, head held high - not in anguish, but in triumph. I saw a brilliant flash of hope and resilience in its emerald eyes. And in a whisper rising up from the drenched black earth, I heard this, “I am here”. Then suddenly, an iron blade of deepest green rose up from the soot where it stood, defiantly, effortlessly. And from the heavy breath of the painted clouds soaking the blackened robes of Ladyface Mountain, I heard this, “I am here”. @malibucreekstatepark #malibustrong #cornellstrong #woolseyfire #malibulife #hope #resilience #dragons #nitaneeparis
The road to recovery can be an interesting one as there are unpredictable moments of ups and downs. Rehab can be tricky but it allows for a great learning experience. The tricky part is knowing when to incorporate certain movements and at certain loads, knowing when to push forward and knowing when to pull back. You become more aware of yourself, how the body works and how to make it more resilient. It also allows you to be extremely grateful for movement & what the human body is capable of. It's also going to test your patience and persistence which in turn will help with growth and development, physically & mentally.
This recovery was a solid team effort from check-ins and appointments with orthopedic specialists, high sport performance doctors & surgeons to physiotherapist. During her rehab as her strength coach I knew that movement & resistance where the ingredients to recovery. I knew what we need to do and how to apply it but the question that was never 100% clear was the 'when'. There was a lot of waiting as we had to see if the bone would fuse back into place to opt out of surgery. You have to be aware of what your body is trying to communicate to you and be able to adapt and apply accordingly. There are going to be periods of major improvements and times when things take a step back. But at all times you need to be aware & apply the appropriate movement with the appropriate resistance.
Knowing what to do and how do it is one thing. Actually doing it and doing it with purpose is a completely different thing. From all of the professionals she saw, the individual who had the hardest job was her. She's the one who has to take all this information and apply it. Day in day out with consistency & concentration. For anyone who has ever dealt with an injury that needed to be rehabbed knows how hard this can be. This will make you stronger as a whole. This will make you appreciate how able bodied you are & not take things, like walking with your own two feet, for granted. IF DONE CORRECTLY.
Melissa your mindset, consistency, work ethic and humor throughout all this is just another reason why you are an amazing human being. I'm privilege to work with you.
