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.



Seeding Conscious Co-creation 

October 8th

9:30am-3:00pm ET

Virtual Event, All Welcome
Freely Offered, Registration Required 

At the height of the 2020 Covid-19 quarantine CEIO was heartfully at work conceiving a new program with the prevailing intention to widen the awareness, practice, and use of conscious co-creation through the forming and sustaining of community of practice circles specifically dedicated to creating greater equity, justice, well-being, and liberation within the larger community.


With support from CEIO the work was to be held by local community members who had their own unique visions and ideas for facilitating such work. Last July the Seeding Conscious Creation program was born and welcomed nine teams into its inaugural cohort. Composed of 16 Vision Holders and 4 Support Guides residing across Connecticut the cohort launched with an opening retreat in October of 2020. These visionaries have poured their hearts, minds, and spirits into this sacred activism during this historically grief filled, arduous and transformative year.


At a time when the seeding of more justice, more healing, more liberation is unequivocally required, this first cohort of Vision Holders have answered the call. You are invited to come celebrate, learn and witness their stories of discovery, surrender, discernment, and creation. We hope you join us. Learn more about the teams HERE.
