For I So Love This World I Walk With You . . .

Carolyn McDade is a lover of language and sound ~ a songwriter committed to the power of singing in personal and social transformation. Her songs, sung widely in the United States and Canada, weave together personal integrity, social vision, and planetary wholeness. For three decades she has gathered circles of women to sing and reflect on life. Carolyn brings the resources of her long story, her recorded music, the written word, and her intense exploration of that which matters.

    24, 25~ SACRED EMERGING ~ UCC, Simi Valley, Los Angeles


    10-12 ~ Women's Singing Circle ~ Kirkridge Retreat Center, Bangor PA

  • A crescent moon waxes, night and day meet level-eyed and we gather to sing on the mountain. Wind whistles on branch and stone, sap lifts a promise of green dreams, and we marvel and sing, sounding the path of love’s long uprising...returning and shift­ing, remembering and imagining, longing and dreaming...we sing anew our universe, freshen­ing our world, our song in a widening embrace. In a circle we sing music of Carolyn McDade, as well as others and social movements. We reflect in silence and communal sharing, and simple ritualized moments. Entering the circle as persons, we collectively create who we are together. Saturday night is community night. Participants bring songs, poetry, stories, dance to share. Sunday is a time of gratitude and pur­pose—continuing on deepened, afresh.
