Meet Melanie Roche
Melanie Roche was an energy healer in private practice who integrated mind-body healing, meditation, therapy, and movement to lead programs for entrepreneurs, patients, health-care practitioners, and individual clients. She served on the faculty of the Barbara Brennan School of Healing and helped inaugurate the Integrative Health and Wellness Program at Canyon Ranch Miami Beach.
Melanie coordinated a program at New York University School of Medicine for high school students who planned to become physicians. Melanie is the author of Thriving Through Cancer: Tools and Practices to Feel Better and Improve Your Quality of Life During Cancer and Beyond – An Integrative Method.
Melanie beat the statistics and lived with ovarian cancer for 10 years. She died peacefully at her home in The Hague, Netherlands on September 29, 2022.
Melanie’s lifelong work was to show others how to work with your energy to create the life you long to live. She partnered with The Shift Network to create a course that is the culmination of her life’s work: The Radiant Human Template: Energy Psychology Tools to Embody & Shine Your Light in the World
How Can You Feel Better as You Go Through Cancer?
When you’re diagnosed with cancer or facing a recurrence, it’s common to feel confused, scared, overwhelmed, powerless, and shocked. It’s hard to know what to do, and how to make decisions for the best care and quality of life.
You may feel disconnected from your body, mind, and spirit, which makes it all too easy to make decisions out of desperation rather than discernment. And if you’re a loved one, friend, fellow support group member, nurse, physician, or healer, how can you best support the patient?
The method discussed in this book gives you a simple, four-step tool you can use, no matter how you’re feeling, to assess your needs. You’ll learn how to choose personalized, synergistic practices to meet those needs on every level–physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual–and improve your quality of life.
WHAT IS ENERGY HEALING?
Energy is tricky to define yet we recognize our experience of it: have you ever noticed you feel great around certain people? When you hear certain music, do you feel different? Or when you look at a painting, do you notice how viewing it changes your state? Do you feel moved? One way to consider these moments of transcendence is that these are experiences of energy.
When you awaken to awareness of energy and work with energy in your body, mind and spirit, your whole life transforms. That old cliché that “the universe is energy,” and “we are energy,” starts to feel palpable and real. You start to feel congruent, in alignment with who you most truly are, no matter what you’re going through.
Working with energy allows you to live your unique life optimally—physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually, and out of that, to bring forth your true purpose—to live the life you’ve always yearned for.
