On April 17, at 8:30 p.m., soul healer Donatella Moltisanti will offer a Moltisanti Soul Singing event at Spa Eir in Kirkland, making available to locals the innovative sound healing work she has offered internationally, over the past three decades.

Whether singing lullabies or sacred chants, mothers and religious leaders have known for millennia what scientists are only beginning to understand, as revealed in ground-breaking research in leading medical journals: Singing has the extraordinary power to uplift, transport, and heal us.

This shift in consciousness is why, after hearing a particular song, our mood may change abruptly, or we suddenly may feel transported back in time. We even may experience physical transformations, with our very molecules altered by the resonance of musical vibrations.

Thirty years ago, Donatella Moltisanti’s relentless and debilitating physical pain disappeared when she began singing opera. Curious, she began exploring the healing powers of music and applying opera to physical health issues – successfully helping people worldwide resolve medical problems that conventional medicine had failed to treat.

In the years since, a growing body of scientific research has proven the healing powers of music, as documented in books like The Power of Music (by NY Times best-selling author Elena Mannes) and The Healing Power of Sound (by oncologist Mitchell Gaynor MD), and sound baths have popped up nationally. Donatella remains at the cutting edge of this work, offering an innovative fusion of operatic vocalization, crystal singing bowls, and guided meditation.
