Here are links to other organisations whose values fit with the DoBeDo way of being and doing

Deep Talk

Deep Talk has been developed by Tuula Valkonen. It is a way of telling stories in the sand using simple props and hand movements to present the story in an open way, inviting the gathered group to wonder for themselves.

The group is then guided with a gentle structure to relate the stories to their own life experiences. This approach can be used with either individuals or a community/team to enable reflective engagement

We use our head, heart and hands. It is soul work and a way of being. Deep Talk sessions create time and space to relax, play and create together. This is often the place of trust where meaningful community can occur.

Stories for the Soul

Wellbeing for older people including those living with dementia - through community, story and creativity. Our Church at Home offers resources for Christian festivals and themes which can be shared in a care setting, with individuals or with intergenerational family groups. Wisdom stories are currently being developed.

Godly Play®

Children have an innate sense of the presence of God. The Godly Play approach helps them to explore their faith through story, to gain religious language and to enhance their spiritual experience though wonder and play. Based on Montessori principles and developed using a spiral curriculum, the Godly Play method serves children through early, middle and late childhood and beyond.

Teal Organisations

Frederic Laloux's Reinventing Organizations is considered by many to be the most influential management book of this decade. It has inspired thousands of organizations throughout the world to take a radical leap and adopt a whole different set of ‘Teal’ management principles and practices. DoBeDo is based on a Teal way of organising a community.

Reinventing Organizations is a word-of-mouth phenomenon, propelled by a deeply caring and generous community of readers. Self-published with no PR, it has already sold 600.000 copies and has been translated in numerous languages.

St Michael’s Workshop

Saint Michael's Workshop makes and sells materials for storytelling. It was established in 1984 as part of the Bowthorpe Community Trust, an Ecumenical Partnership seeking to serve the local community. The role of the Workshop is to help people with learning difficulties and physical disadvantages to develop their full potential. Working with wood, fostering social skills and encouraging creative and therapeutic activities which form the basis of each week.


EmpathyLab is the first organisation to build children's empathy, literacy and social activism through a systematic use of high-quality literature. Our strategy builds on new scientific evidence showing the power of reading to build real-life empathy skills.We believe that empathy is a beacon of hope in a divided world.
