08 JUNE 2021 (TORONTO, ON) - Inspired by the ground-breaking research of Dr. Gabor Maté into childhood trauma and healing, Raffi has created a stunning new song about the power of love to help us heal from trauma.  Humanity and the planet are suffering as a result of a lack of understanding about trauma and its root causes.


“Song For Healing” and its video will debut on June 8 at 10:00 AM PDT as part of the premiere of a new film about Maté and his work, The Wisdom of Trauma.  For more information about the film and the week-long series of panels and lectures that accompany the opening, visit The Wisdom of Trauma


A distinguished physician and bestselling author, Gabor Maté is highly sought after on a range of topics including addiction, stress and childhood trauma and development.  Rather than offering quick-fix solutions to these complex issues, Dr. Maté weaves together scientific research, case histories, and his own insights and experiences to present a broad perspective that enlightens and empowers people to promote their own healing and that of those around them.


Written and produced by Raffi, “Song for Healing” highlights Raffi’s advocacy work with his Raffi Foundation for Child Honouring and the primacy of respectful love in the formative early years of life. Lindsay Munroe, a rising children’s music artist whose initial album, I Am Kind, has been highly praised, lends her beautiful voice in unison and harmony.


Last summer Raffi released a 40th-anniversary version of “Baby Beluga” with famed cellist Yo-Yo Ma.  Most recently, Raffi released “For All You Do” in collaboration with Lindsay Munroe and Yo-Yo Ma.  The song is a musical expression of gratitude to essential workers on whom we have depended during this ongoing pandemic.
