The Essential Coffee

Lectures, films and artistic events

for the inner path.


From fragments of the teaching of Selim Aïssel

I have been lucky enough to learn from a contemporary sage. Selim Aïssel is one of these remarkable men, just as I had found them in my readings, these teachers of wisdom that I thought belonged to the past and were no longer within our reach.

What I have learned is so great, so beautiful, and at the same time so suitable for our current life, that I cannot keep it just for myself! This is how the idea of this series of conferences arose. ” thomas sebastien

In the “Café Esencial” style at the Cityzen Barcelona space in El Born: conference or movieYoass or event artistic + coffee/tea in a relaxing environment. From 7:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.
