“To 'listen' another's soul into a condition of disclosure and discovery may be almost the greatest service that any human being ever performs for another.”
– Douglas V. Steere
"...Paul, I am so glad you ran this Soul Food Café workshop. This has meant a lot to me in many areas and for many reasons, but I think the most revealing bit was sharing my story ...
I was rather shocked to see how many things were "below the line", and how deep they were below the line. I have a feeling that God is changing me and my direction ..." - Elaine

"On the first day, I felt this amazing sense of relief when you shared the concept of listening to each other's broken and beautiful stories and valuing each person and their story…
Finally, I found someone who's on the same page!" - Wendy
Experience. The difference.
Soul Food Café was created to address the growing mental and spiritual health needs in the community.

Our aim at Soul Food Café is to transform existing community places like cafés into enriched environments where people do life together, provide support and give voice to the deeper things of the soul.

We specialise in skills-based coaching and resilience training to schools, community and church-based organisations.
