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  
Rich says,
“...with no extraordinary power reconstitute the world”.

this century as democracy was to the one just past."
