Well Talk ~ Living Inspired: The Conversations
Wellspring Edmonton invites you to join our Living Inspired Series
Talking with Lynne Harley.
When Lynne was a mother to three small boys, she was faced with the devastating news of a cancer diagnosis. She felt her life as she knew it unravel. Within a year, her marriage and business partnership dissolved, and she faced a second diagnosis. As she stood in the rubble of what had been her life, she saw she had a choice. She could continue to live her life tossed about by outside conditions and circumstances, or she could live from the vision of what she would love to do in order to thrive. Twenty-two years later, Lynne is doing well and shares how she moved through many challenges.
Lynne loves to travel and has enjoyed many adventures learning about other cultures and volunteering abroad. She has traveled most of North, Central, and South America, China, Thailand, Cambodia, India, Nepal, and parts of Europe. She is deeply grateful for her physical well-being and her active lifestyle. A few of her favorites – spending time in nature with like-minded friends, hiking, kayaking, skiing, snowshoeing… morning coffee, meditation, yoga, and gratitude practices. Lynne currently resides in Camrose, Alberta, Canada.
Lynne Harley is a certified Transformational Life Coach and Life Mastery Consultant, combing a background of over 30 years experience as a Social Worker and Life Skills Coach.
June 16, 2021: Sherry Abbot
Sherry was the Director, Public Relations at Revlon Canada when she was diagnosed with small-cell ovarian cancer in 1989. At that time her prognosis was dim: a rare disease, few treatment options and virtually no survivors. Due to the advanced stage of her disease she was told she had only a few months to live and that she should prepare to move to a Nursing home as she likely would not be able to look after herself. In that moment her spirit was broken. Thirty-two years later- Sherry is still here and thriving. What can she share about her 32 years of experience not only coping with, but participating in her overall medical care, wellbeing and selfcare? In Sherry’s words..”My cancer experience has taught me many great lessons. I have learned that we are so much more than just our physical bodies. In harmony and balance, and with a strong connection between our mind, body and spirit, we can all live better, more fulfilling lives.
May 18, 2021: Anne Belohorec
In the summer of 2019, at the age of 66 years, Anne accomplished something she previously thought impossible – she backpacked the Chilkoot trail, a 54 km world renowned trail in the Yukon, where she grew up. Thirty years prior, she visited the trailhead from the confines of her wheelchair.
When her children were young, Anne was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis that left her immobile, wearing a neck collar, back braces and dependent on an electric wheelchair for fifteen years. Devastated by the many losses including health and her job, she wondered “Who am I?”
Despite the limitations of severe disability, Anne raised her children, returned to University and became an active volunteer in a number of organizations, including the MS Society, where she received numerous awards.
After exploring alternative healing therapies for her own healing in the 1990’s, Anne took her first step and eventually left her wheelchair for good. She is now an advanced craniosacral therapist, lymphatic drainage therapist, a reiki and touch for health practitioner, and facilitator of Energy Medicine.
Since her Chilkoot trip, she has gone on to scramble mountains, climb a via ferrata, and snowshoes in the Canadian Rockies.
