Experience Forgiveness: Sound Healing for the Heart

Graduate Community Center (750 Escondido Road), Havana Room

Sponsored by:
Health Improvement Program

Join Fred Luskin, PhD, director of the Stanford Forgiveness Project, and operatic sound healer Donatella Moltisanti, for an educational and experiential class on the healing power of forgiveness. Forgiveness has been shown to reduce anger, hurt, depression and stress, and lead to greater feelings of optimism, hope, compassion and self confidence. Dr. Luskin will share the principles and applications of forgiveness, then go on to share both scientific research and clinical anecdotes showing how the mind-body-spirit connection makes forgiveness a key part of overall well-being. Following this presentation, Donatella will share how music and sound can guide the listener into a profound state of relaxation and meditation, and in this space of calm, one can be invited to experience the feelings of forgiveness and compassion.

Donatella will then guide participants through the Moltisanti Soul Singing program – combining guided meditation with operatic vocalization and crystal singing bowls. Participants will be provided with a 5-step take-home exercise to begin embodying the practical applications of forgiveness in their lives. Please bring yoga mat and pillow to class.

Instructor: Fred Luskin, PhD, is a Senior Consultant in Health Promotion at Stanford University, the director of the Stanford Forgiveness Project and author of Forgive for Good.
