November 16, 2007 My Heart is Moved CD Launch - Halifax
On November 16 at 7:30pm, the doors open to launch a unique recording
of songs that come from, and connect us to, the urgent wisdom of the
Earth Charter. Everyone is invited to celebrate the release of My Heart
is Moved with songwriter Carolyn McDade and the Atlantic Gaia Singers
at Bethany United Church, 7171 Clinton Ave., in Halifax. Admission is
The Earth Charter is an international declaration endorsed by thousands
of organizations the world over. It presents the changes necessary for
us to be in right relationship with each other, and the Earth. This CD
recording, My Heart Is Moved, is part of the answer of how we do that.
For many years women throughout North America have gathered with
composer and visionary Carolyn McDade, to sing and create intentional
communities. In June 2007, 85 women, including many from Atlantic
Canada, travelled to Boston to record vocal tracks for this CD. They
brought with them the amazing preparation and commitment of their local
communities. They also brought months of contemplation about the Earth
Charter and the inspiration of singing its message. The Charter as
text is meaningful; as song it is transformational.
This launch and CD release is our way to honour all who work toward
creating reverent and sustainable lives; those who, as poet Adrienne
“...with no extraordinary power reconstitute the world”.

"The concept of sustainability...has the power to be as disruptive to
this century as democracy was to the one just past."
