Dr. Carmichael is the Founder & CEO of the Kalyana Centre (formerly The Center for Oneness) since September 2009. Her desire to create a place of beauty, healing and transformation where people can come to experience a variety of modalities in Alternative Medicine resulted from an intention that began when she left the pharmaceutical industry permanently in 2008.
She has been practicing in the nursing field for over 26 years. Her background includes psychiatric nursing along with over 20 years of clinical experience in the pharmaceutical research industry. Simultaneous studies in Holistic Health, Metaphysics, Divinity, Yoga, and Ayurveda resulted in two doctoral degrees and have given her a well-rounded perspective on health and healing and its intimate relationship to spirituality. Ordained an Interfaith Minister in December 2002, she continues to deepen her understanding and experience of these topics as an integrative/holistic and preventive medicine consultant and teacher.
She completed the Vedic Mastery program at the Chopra Center in Carlsbad, CA under the inspired direction of Drs. David Simon and Deepak Chopra in 2007. She completed an internship in Ayurvedic Medicine in 2010 in Coimbatore India and is a graduate of the New Jersey Institute of Ayurveda where she completed her Diploma in Ayurvedic Medicine in 2011.
“Learning and practicing the ancient healing art of Ayurveda can facilitate the creation of unity within ourselves, with each other, the earth and the universe.” – Dr. Joanna Carmichael
Her belief in the interconnectedness between physiology, psychology and spirituality and the need for conventional as well as complementary modalities provides a vast array of choices by which the individual can begin their journey into healing.
She has been a guest on radio talk shows and writes and speaks about spirituality as it relates to health and well being in addition to various topics on prevention and complementary medicine.
“Starting this Centre has been a dream come true. My intention to do this at a time where we need healing on all levels became manifest…. I had the vision and now the vision has me…”
