Deeper Change Forums
Deeper Change Forums 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 freely. Registration is required and will open six weeks prior to event.

An Invitation From SCC Leaders Slate & Leyanne
We are feeling both fortunate and excited to invite you to the upcoming Deeper Change Forum on Friday, June 30th featuring CEIO’s 2022-23 Seeding Conscious Co-Creation (SCC) cohort. As a cohort, we have spent the last eight months gathering and grappling with what it means to consciously use our power towards equity and liberation in community. This forum will be a celebratory showcase of the wisdom the cohort members, who we call vision holders, have learned throughout the program.
Although the program and group's guiding intention was the same, Seeding Conscious Co-Creation, each participant will be sharing from their own unique experience and journey. In a world with so many well-built systems designed to reinforce separation and disempowerment, you can imagine all we have each had to face and examine within ourselves. The lessons have been endless with themes around power, leadership, co-creating in community, relationship to self and others, accountability, and boundaries to name a few.
Each vision holder from the cohort will show and/or tell a part of their experience and we will celebrate them as a community! Get ready to hoot and holler!!
These individuals have launched and held communities of practice for entrepreneurs, mental health professionals, immigrant moms, Black women, radical educators, marginalized artists and other communities all coming together to practice conscious co-creation towards liberation. The insights and real time liberatory knowledge these brilliant community members have gained from staying the course is a gift to us all. We can not wait to witness the magic of this day with you!
Please join us for a very special day of nourishing community wisdom and connections. We hope that you will walk away from this forum enriched by witnessing, receiving from and celebrating this incredible group of Seeding Conscious Co-Creation vision holders.
