We believe that happiness is not a mystical ability you are born with – it’s an approach to life that you can learn. As Finland is the world’s happiest country, we're organising a four day Masterclass in Finland where selected applicants learn the methods to finding their inner Finn.

Master your inner Finn

This is where the journey begins

The Finnish state of mind is not a closely guarded secret or a mystical ability Finns are born with. On the contrary, it can be shared: Finnish happiness is a skill. A skill that can be taught. Now we want to share our secrets to leading a balanced life on the quirky side. This is where your journey to finding your inner Finn begins.

Learn how to reconnect with nature and embrace the unique habits and traditions of Finland – the happiest country in the world for the six consequtive years. At the Masterclass of Happiness, Finnish coaches from various fields share their best practices and methods on finding your inner Finn – all in the middle of Finnish nature. The Masterclass of Happiness is an in-person session held in Finland in June 2023. The application period has now ended. Thank you for applying. Follow us on social media for updates.

Masterclass of Happiness

Find your spark and inner Finn in Finnish Lakeland

The Masterclass of Happiness is a totally unique four-day experience held in June. The location is carefully selected to cater to the needs of all selected applicants on their quest for Finnish happiness. Kuru Resort is a private retreat centre located in the Finnish Lakeland region. At Kuru, guests will be accommodated in an exclusive private villa.

During the four days, attendees will be introduced to their inner Finn and start building a set of skills that help them sustain a balanced lifestyle in connection with nature.
Attendees will be learning about themes such as nature crafts, food for the soul and body, exercise in forests and lakes, calming sounds and music and the Finnish way of life in general. All this takes place in exclusive sessions with Finnish experts working as personal coaches.
