Natural Awakenings San Diego

Local Healer Publishers Memoir

Aug 30, 2012 07:09PM

Dr. Carolle Jean-Murat, MD, intuitive healer and founder of Dr. Carolle’s Wellness & Retreat Center of San Diego, is thrilled to announce that her book, Voodoo In My Blood: A Healer’s Journey from Surgeon to Shaman, will be released this October.

Born and raised in Haiti to a family of healers, Dr. Carolle Jean-Murat completed her medical training in the U.S. and settled in San Diego in 1982. She soon was regarded as one of the best gynecologic surgeons around—tall and regal, a lone black female among the elite. But her success harbored a secret: when a patient entered her office, she could quickly and intuitively see the root cause of her patient's illness, oftentimes knowing she could help the patient without having to put her under the knife. Jean-Murat knew she dare not make these claims aloud. Struggling to fit in with the Western medical paradigm, her intuition and vision were best left unmentioned.

Voodoo in My Blood details the author’s journey from western medical practitioner to shaman.

The memoir has already received rave reviews including one from acclaimed Christiane Northrup, M.D., author of the New York Times bestsellers: Women’s Bodies, Women’s Wisdom and The Wisdom of Menopause who states, ”This fascinating memoir sheds light on the importance of asking yourself, ‘Have I created for myself the life I've meant to live?’”
