If you love conversation and coffee, you’ve come to the right place. We meet weekly at our favourite local cafe to chat about life, the universe, and everything with the aim to make ourselves better through dialogue.
Oh and yes, we want to change the world too!
Our dialogues are not exclusive, in fact, the more people – people like you – we can engage in conversation, the more we all learn.
Our basic approach is grounded in appreciative inquiry, the Socratic method (basically asking loads of good questions that make you stop and think), and positive psychology.

#142: Why Positive Affirmations Don't Work

#141: The Four Agreements

This is really good, I’m basically using these guys as my own therapist!
More than just a Podcast
Clay and Sarah have an very infectious chatty style, with thought provoking topics that encourage you to stop, think and if it takes you, act. The fact that they are two expats living in the UK makes it particularly interesting as they can draw up their experience and make it relevant to their discussion.
The cafe backgound noise makes it very atmospheric to the point I can imagine being sat at the table, sipping coffee and listening in!
I also go back to a listen again to some of the podcasts as I find them to be very good reference material.
Intellectually stimulating and exciting
The Havana Cafe Sessions Podcast never fails to challenge the big questions that we have in life. They discuss such a wide variety of questions and Sarah and Clay cover these topics in a philosophical and fun way. It's a very interactive podcast that encourages its listeners to think for themselves. On top of all this they are supporting their local cafe. Highly recommended for anyone who has questions about life that they'd like to hear another perspective on.
