About the Program

Heart Attack is a month long course that gives you the opportunity to transform your personal limits into strengths and maximize your full potential. The aim is to give you practical tools and direction to achieve your optimal way of life, whatever that is uniquely for you. Using our 6 phase process you will experience yourself in a totally new way, removing layers of unconscious conditioning and uncover parts of yourself you never knew existed.

We do this through experiential learning, group empowerment and self-development as we know that book knowledge can only take us so far.

It is these experiences within our safe, supportive environment which will raise your self-awareness, awaken you to self-love and empower you with the capabilities to accomplish any goal. The process can help you to live in closer alignment to who you really are and help you find the balance you’ve been looking for.

The Rosemary Dream Team act as your personal coaches, challengers and supporters, there to guide and grow with you. Heart Attack can be the most extraordinary month you could ever imagine… the choice to make a change is yours.

spiritual healing vacations


Each of the activities are designed with intention in order to facilitate your growth and give you the tools to transform yourself and your life in the way that best suits you. Everyday you will experience a full day of physical activities, workshops, lectures and experiential challenges.

Physical activities: e.g. yoga, martial arts, monkey movement, krav maga, sea swimming, wolf running

Workshops and lectures: e.g. overcoming your limiting beliefs, values discovery, subconscious mind control techniques, self-love practice, human connection

Transform the way you live

One week survival

You will be guided through the ultimate survival experience and learn to cope with only the bare essentials learning crafting skills, building shelters, fishing, bonfire activities, minimalism experience and additional special adventures. You will be led into a tropical forest armed only with the basic human needs – shelter, fire and food. This experiential learning exercise allows you to test your character in an extreme environment. During the experience you will receive feedback on how to manage your emotions, cooperate effectively, survive in the wild and your areas of personal growth.

We will take you through a process of self-development enabling you to become more authentic, self-assured, and empowered to achieve your dreams. Each participant will receive personal coaching from the Heart Attack Program mentors to ensure that your personal growth is specific and precise. By the end of the month you will have the clarity, confidence and competence to create the life you’ve always wanted.

How do I get there?


Rosemary Dream is based in Barra Da Lagoa. The cheapest way is to arrive is by bus. From the central bus station (Terminal Centro), it will take you 1-2 hours depending on the day. When you arrive at Centro, you need to exit and head right to the local bus station (Terminal Urbano). Here you will need to get either the 320 or the 330 to TILAG (Terminal de Integração da Lagoa da Conceição) and then the 360 to Barra Da Lagoa. At the final stop you will see a big blue bridge which you need to cross and then follow the path right for 100 metres until you’re at Rosemary Dream.


It is around 50 Reis to get an uber from the Terminal Centro to Barra da Lagoa so if you don’t mind spending that little bit extra, jump in!


If you took a flight to Florianopolis, you can either get a ticket for a minibus to a nearby bus station and get a bus from there to Terminal Centro, Floripa inside the airport before you exit, or alternatively you can take a taxi there too.

If you need to know where we are, check it out on Google Maps:

How much free time will I have?

You will have one free day a week, but generally you will want to use this day to rest and reflect as the program is very intensive and requires some time to process your learnings.

What’s included?

For the whole month, excluding your days off, you will be provided with food, accommodation, activities. We will be on hand to support and help 24/7 throughout your experience.

What will I be eating?

Our experienced kitchen team will be providing you with the most scrumptious and nutritious food. 90% of our food is vegan, due to not being able to responsibly source meat and dairy, and the rest of the time we eat pescatarian.

Can I bring my dog/kids?

Because your month will be all immersive, we don’t allow people to bring their dogs or children since there won’t be time for you to care for them.

Where will I sleep?

For the majority of the time you will be in high standard shared accommodation so that you bond with your fellow participants, however you will also spend one phase of Heart Attack in the wilderness.

What’s nearby?

Rosemary Dream is situated in Barra Da Lagoa, a small fishing village. Here you will be able to buy all your necessities and essentials. If you need to get money out or buy something special.

How much money should I bring?

Everything is covered except for your 3 free days, so it is primarily up to you, but $100 – 200 will be more than enough to cover you for food and snacks whilst you’re here.

What should I bring?

Full packing list will be shared during your registration call. 

Do I need to be physically fit to participate?

Although there will be a number of physically demanding activities, these can be complete by someone with an average level of fitness.

When do I need to arrive?

We recommend that you arrive at least 3 days in advance of the program for you to get adequately familiar with your surroundings, meet other participants and shake off any jetlag you may have from travelling. We give all participants 1 free nights stay before the program begins.

Can I stay after?

Please do! Normally, our Heart Attack participants want to stay at least another week or two after to consolidate and reflect on their experience whilst still under the wing of Rosemary. You can stay for as long as you like after the program at a special discounted rate for participants.

Do I need a visa?

This will depend on what passport you hold. Please check what the rules are for you here:

Will I need vaccines?

Yes. Please see your personal doctor for information on which ones you need before you come. It is not a requirement for you to have the Yellow Fever or Rabies vaccine to enter Brazil.
