Everyday Deep is a call, a creative forum and a women's community.

Everyday Deep is


Everyday Deep is a place and platform for real and relatable women to explore and share their deeper selves and stories.

Our mission is to encourage women to jump into their lives in their own unique and individual ways while supporting and being supported by others doing the same. Everyday Deep is about following your heart ... in the heart of community.

Join us at any of our relaxed monthly gatherings the third Wednesday of each month at The Treehouse in Downers Grove. It's a warm setting with a cool vibe that's great for engaging presentations and interesting conversations.

Everyday Deep is


Everyday Deep speakers are local women following their passions; facing down difficulties; feeling creative; fighting for a cause; feeding their souls; finding out what's important to them and so much more...


Each personal story offers something of the why and how of that woman's unique journey and what it led or is leading her to. Things like personal growth; artistic expression; spiritual experience; better health; helping others; a new adventure; a true vocation. But more important than any outcome is showing how they're authentically engaging with life to learn, love and grow. We are each a work in progress!

Our belief is that we can all learn from and be inspired by the "everyday" wise women in our midst. And we too can be brave enough to step forward with something that may open the eyes, hearts and minds of others.

Everyday Deep is


You're not alone! Everyday Deep is about bringing together the energy and intimacy of women to support and celebrate one another. We've created different ways to do so:

Creative Forums

Everyday Deep creative forums start and end with time for all of us to connect. In between, we have two scheduled speakers (usually women from our tribe) who give talks @ 20 minutes long with a brief audience Q&A after each one. Afterward, anyone who can, stays to socialize. FYI: We can talk about serious stuff and have lots of laughs too...

Small Groups

Everyday Deep-er small groups are meant to give women the time and space for deeper introspection and interaction. Each one features brief but engaging content to dig into and discuss with others in our tribe.  Occasionally, we also offer workshops for more in-depth learning.

A Creative Forum about Transitions and Trying New Things

Spring is coming and we're celebrating the season of New Life! It can come in all kinds of ways and we've got two great ladies who will share what new life has meant for them. Please join us for an evening to be encouraged and inspired by real women's stories and to reflect on your own.

Karen Stahlecker

Midlife meant a new life for Karen Stahlecker — and a divorce and two moves were only the beginning. Karen calls it a leap of faith that led to a baptism by fire: learning to run her half of a family real estate business; navigating the dating world and taking her power back. Karen will tell us how it's going and how she's taking pride in small successes.

Dana Mitchell

As a former labor and delivery nurse, Dana Mitchell knows a lot about the birthing process. Now an entrepreneur, she's brought to life her own creativity and creations as a jewelry designer and business owner of Adorn 512. Dana will share the journey that she says made her who she is — the type of person who says, "why not try?"
