From 16 to 18 January next year we will host another Godly Play Core Training event as a VET Intensive under the guidance of Judyth Roberts.
Godly Play is a Montessori method of telling Bible stories, developed by Jerome Berryman, using parables, sacred stories and liturgical lessons about religious traditions using simple materials. Godly Play is used extensively with adults and children in many settings, from schools to hospitals, churches to aged care facilities. Godly Play training events have evolved over 40 years of research, practice, reflection and prayer and are designed to be as innovative and deeply spiritual for adults as Godly Play is for children. In Godly Play training you will learn about Godly Play and be deeply nurtured and encouraged in your own spiritual journey
This VET Intensive is an intense three-day course in which participants are immersed in Godly Play practice. Learn and tell a story for supportive feedback and evaluation. To achieve accreditation as a storyteller/doorperson you need to attend a minimum of 21 hours training (3 days). In this time two accredited trainers will work with the group to provide information and experience of the three genres of stories in Godly Play, the role of the storyteller, the role of the doorperson, the Godly Play space, materials, response time, spirituality of the child, forming and maintaining a story circle community that is safe, the history and practice of Godly Play and much more.
