On a Treasure Hunt to Find Happiness with David Gomes

David Gomes has certainly led a varied life. As a younger man he trained under Vidal Sasoon to become a hairdresser to the stars, a time he knows that trained him to become an active listener. Later in life David became a film maker, but through both careers was always a natural mentor.

At the age of 47 he decided to put his natural ability to use and became a coach.

In David’s words:

The truth is, all of us are on a treasure hunt to find happiness. Some are obvious, like money, a job we  enjoy, healthy relationships and achieving worthwhile goals.

Some  are less obvious, like purpose, meaning and a sense of fulfillment and  inner peace. We need a balance of both if we want to experience a  joyful, significant life.


I have been referred to as a  practical thinker, a sounding board and the mindfulness guy. I provide  refreshingly fresh perspectives. I am a self confessed enemy of the  status quo and a believer in people’s dreams. I never give up on people  or good ideas.

As a young man I had become dissatisfied with my  life, in spite of what I had achieved and experienced. That unhappiness  led me on a search. They say when the student is ready, the teacher  arrives and that was true in my case.

I began an earnest study in  one of the great wisdom and meditation traditions, and have been  traveling on that path for over 30 years.


I think of  mindfulness as medicine one can apply to any situation in life to feel  happier and more resilient, and that naturally makes you more likely to  achieve your goals and dreams.
