Deeper Change Forums

Deeper Change Forums have grown so far beyond their original  idea. The expansion of networks, the loving and fiercely honest environment, the powerful learning. 


These gatherings have become the heart of our work. They will resume Spring of 2020.

DEEPER CHANGE FORUMS AIM TO : Create spaces that invite fundamental transformation. A change that is so deep that a return to the previous conditions is utterly inconceivable. Courageous conversations - grounded in peace, justice, and love.

Our Deeper Change events hosts speakers, artists and workshops to address and move us toward systemic change throughout our society, with an emphasis on New Haven. Events allow community members to hear from and learn with each other and with featured presenters who are working at root levels of for change. Topics have ranged from environmental justice to wellbeing, organizing to art as disrupting injustice.

Deeper Change Forums are open to all and offered at no cost for admission. Registration is required.

  • Dr. Joy DeGruy

  • Seane Corn

  • Climbing PoeTree

  • Leah Penniman

  • Charles Eisenstein
