“This is the most life-changing course I have ever done.”




The Course

The Gay Happiness Project is a unique 8-week mindfulness-based group training programme designed for gay men who want to increase happiness and life satisfaction.

With an emphasis on kindness and compassion you will learn life skills and effective self-care techniques that will enable you to develop a better understanding of yourself and embrace life with greater ease.

Participants quickly establish meaningful connections, building confidence and trust with fellow participants by sharing experiences and learning together in a supportive environment that is practical and down-to-earth.


I honestly don't think I could have coped with the level of change and challenge I had in my life without the self-support and mindfulness techniques this course taught me. Utterly amazing. Thank you.”
