— is being used with adults and youth, often in groups, but also one-to-one; those trained in Deep Talk are using it in work and business settings as well as in education, church and therapeutic contexts. More info is available at
*Deep Talk method*
— takes a number of Godly Play principles and some Godly Play stories—along with some new stories—and adapts these for a spiritual process suitable to secular and religious settings, to help groups work through issues or challenges, or consider their organisation’s vision or mission.
*Deep Talk development*
— began in Finland with Tuula Valkonen, but now this is developing in the UK, the Netherlands, South Africa, Namibia and Australia. Since 2016 several trainings in Deep Talk have taken place in Sheffield, England and this is the latest one, will be led by Jeremy Clines (and one other trainer as yet to be confirmed). It will be for a group of up to eight people, so please book straight away if you are interested.
*Deep Talk sessions*
- begin similarly to Godly Play – by sitting in a circle; the showing of a story; and a time of wondering; but then everyone changes places and a dialogue game is played, arising from the story: this is when the group explores their work and life together. Then a celebration and chance to say farewell.
*Deep Talk training*
This two day training—led by Prof. Cora O'Farrell (Deep Talk Trainer and Asst. Professor in Education) and Revd Dr Jeremy Clines (Deep Talk Trainer, Sheffield, UK)—is a comprehensive exploration and equipping for practicing Deep Talk. Experience in Godly Play is helpful but not essential.

Jeremy has led several training courses in Deep Talk and facilitates spirituality days in Deep Talk as well as using Deep Talk in secular, university, church, youth, one-to-one and crisis settings.
*Cora O'Farell*Cora is academically experienced in methods and principles of education and also a practitioner, in the Christian education, of Godly Play. Cora met Tuula and attended training in Deep Talk 3 years ago, since when she has been offering Deep Talk sessions with colleagues and students and for improved dialogue in higher education.
