Durham County Library will host Dr. Larry Burk as he reads from his book: Let Magic Happen: Adventures in Healing with a Holistic Radiologist. The book chronicles his journey from his professional training in conventional radiology to his alternative path into the world of holistic medicine. The program will be held at 7 p.m. on June 18, at the Main Library, 300 N. Roxboro St.
“Many of these stories stem from mind-body-spirit techniques that I learned from numerous generous teachers,” said Burk. “I look forward to sharing the magic with sincere seekers everywhere.”
A book signing will follow the reading.
Burk received his medical degree from the University of Pittsburgh, where he also completed a residency in radiology. In the 1980s, his father’s battle with renal cancer and Burk’s own experience with the National MRI Safety Committee led to his interest in alternative medicine. Since then, Burk has studied and become licensed in numerous alternative treatments, including acupuncture, parapsychology, hypnosis and energy healing. Burk co-founded the Duke Center for Integrative Medicine in 1998, and served as the Center’s Education Director. He currently works for Oriental Health Solutions, LLC in Durham, where he uses techniques such as hypnosis, medical acupuncture and Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT) to treat a wide variety of conditions.
