Did you know, happiness is a skill that can be learned?

And the really great news that you can become certified to teach others to find more happiness in their lives.

The Dalai Lama said the best way to be happy is to help others to find happiness. So this is a great way to achieve this.

At the Museum of Happiness, we are on a mission to share the science and art of happiness in playful ways as far and wide as possible! :-)

"Happy teachers will change the world' - Thich Nhat Hanh

We have put together a two-day programme, where we can upskill ourselves and share with others too!

It has been a dream come true to dedicate our lives to learning and sharing the science and art of happiness with friends and family, in schools, charities, businesses and other organisations too.

It seems the world is really waking up and realising that happiness isn't just a 'nice to have". It is a vital life skill that we all need to flourish and schools and organisations are thankfully placing value on this now.

The Museum of Happiness invites you to get certified to facilitate happiness classes through our new, in-person Museum of Happiness Facilitator Programme.

Why Teach Happiness?

With depression now at epidemic levels worldwide, we need a happiness revolution!

A revolution in which the science and art of happiness are discussed, explored and put into practice.

Over 20 years of research has shown that happiness is a skill that you can learn and develop with practice.

You can be part of that happiness revolution!

We have two training programs:

  1. Certified 2 Day Museum of Happiness Facilitator Training

  2. Certified 4 Day Museum of Happiness Teacher Training

You are required to do the 2 day facilitator training before you can apply to go on  the 4 day teacher training.

Is it seriously possible to teach happiness?


A growing number of psychologists and scientists now consider happiness to be a skill that can be learnt - something that philosophers and spiritual teachers have said for many years.

Our programme covers the latest research from leading minds in the worlds of neuroscience and positive psychology. We'll also show you practical exercises that can instantly boost happiness and techniques that can literally rewire your brain so you're happier, healthier and kinder to yourself and others.

What does the training cover?

Through this course, you’ll become a Certified Museum of Happiness Facilitator and you'll be ready to teach in your local community, school, fitness centre or wherever else you choose.

Over the 2 days, you'll explore:

"The teachers preach happiness, live happiness, and are happiness! The training is about how to intentionally create your life with happiness. Highly recommended" - Puja Sapotka, The Global Fund to Fights AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria, Switzerland.

"I've learnt more about the science of happiness, gratitude and kindness and now have opportunities to share it further" - Shaileen Shah, Founder of Happy Life Habits, London.

What's the difference to the 4-day Museum of Happiness Teacher Training?

This Museum of Happiness facilitator training is a prerequisite to our 4-day Museum of Happiness Teacher Training.

Who designed the program?

This program has been written and designed by Shamash Alidina, author of 5 bestselling books including Mindfulness for Dummies, and Victoria Johnson, co-founder of the Museum of Happiness and formally senior trainer at NCS The Challenge.
