The balancing six themes

We have worked hard to create a program that brings clarity, strength and confidence in all aspects of life. That sounds like a big ask, and it is! But we’ve got it covered. We are a professional team with varied backgrounds and skill sets who have managed to develop a rich program that offers different ways to gain comprehensive understanding, experience and training in the major components of life.

Here are the things that we’ll be covering over the course of the 30 days:

beach meditation retreat


We focus on defining a balanced lifestyle with focus and clarity, helping you to learn the science of developing habits that stick. You’ll create a high-five-able relationship with money and make a clear, actionable plan for your ultimate lifestyle that brings you balance, abundance, enthusiasm, health and ease throughout your day-to-day activities.

self retreat centers


Have you ever been nervous about saying what you really feel? Scared to be a bit weird? Or are you ashamed of anything? Don’t worry, it’s normal and also something we can easily do something about. We’ll provide the workshops and activities that will allow you to experience yourself through art, dance, public speaking and performance. You will find out more about how you interact with the world and how you can express yourself from the heart authentically, openly and honestly.

Psychology, the psyche and self-knowledge

You will become a master of yourself to be a strong and confident leader. We will share with you everything we know about how you can be your own coach, control your emotions, influence your subconscious mind, uncover and change your limiting beliefs, be mindful and aware, have ultimate clarity on who you are and where you’re going in order to be joyous and purposeful in everything you do.

Connection to self and others

From the longest study of happiness, came an extremely important finding: “Good relationships keep us happier and healthier”. We uncover the science of what makes good relationships happen and how to connect deeply with your family, friends and strangers quickly and authentically using verbal and non-verbal communication. As well as this, we will be exploring the idea of self-love and how to develop your self-esteem, trust and empathy.

meditation and wellness retreats


One of the most basic and misunderstood aspects of our well-being is how we should manage our physical, mental, emotional and spiritual health. From buddhist practice and philosophy to leading psychology and science, you’ll learn and practice the tools and techniques you need to keep you feeling energised, clear minded and ready to take on your challenges. Focusing on what we think are the main pillars of health; sleep, nutrition, exercise and mindfulness, you’ll be shaping your daily habits and natural tendencies, so that wherever you are in the world, you’ll feel energised throughout the day.

hiking meditation retreat


The importance of nature cannot be understated. We’ll be taking you past your occasional walk, to experience nature in a very new and personal way. You will learn about what the Stoics called “living according to nature’s laws”. You will understand and strengthen your relationship with nature, how use the nature, and how to preserve it. By the end of the program you will appreciate the natural world through a deeper understanding of it’s inner workings and be able to tap into nature’s innate wisdom.

“Wow! What an incredible life changing experience for me. Rosemary dream has far exceeded my expectations. Before I arrived at Rosemary dream I thought that my life was in control and I felt happy. Rosemary took me through a 30 day journey of adventure, challenge, love, self discovery, self empowerment and provided me with many tools that I will continue to use on a daily basis to maintain this new way of being. I feel in control in the most healthy way and feel like I’ve taken back my life”

“Heart Attack exceeded all my expectations. From using the 3 elements of monk, monkey and the modern human I have completely transformed into a better version of myself. Through meditation, immersing myself in nature, natural movement, breaking barriers and constantly being put out of my comfort zone I grew stronger and stronger, becoming my true self and understanding that the obstacles were the way. I became confident, determined and completely decisive to follow my heart and live my life full of passion and excitement.”

life changing retreats
Eugenie Barthalot

I was feeling stuck in a non-exciting life, feeling empty to not know what I have to do, struggling with myself to find my way, experimenting many things to try to find it. Finally found the answer in Heart Attack program. I have experienced things that I couldn’t imagine be able to do  before that. I found that I have an incredible power and that all the answers that I was looking for, are actually in myself. I’m full of passion, determination, courage, ambition. I’m fully myself. I’m ready to live the life that I want, the life of my dreams. “

“I’ve learnt so much about life here, and faced many rewarding challenges here. Simple things, Big gnarly things, profound and magical things, mind blowing things, but most of all what I’ve learnt here, and what I hope to return the favour and help others see, is that Accepting oneself, in truly being okay to “”Just Be”” is one of the greatest gifts in life”

What stood out to me most about Heart Attack is how much power I actually have over my own mind. Now I feel like I’m more in control of myself, I don’t procrastinate, I give myself the time to enjoy life, appreciate the outdoors, communicate with people more, sharing my happiness because it makes me feel happier too.

My HEART ATTACK experience. Wow, where do I even begin. It was many laughters, tears, adventures, challenges, hugs, beautiful conversations, healthy meals, crazy dances, monkey movements, rewilding moments, meditations, deep discussions, workshops… and now 8 months later I cannot even express how much this experience has changed my life. The experiences inspired me, challenged me, put me out of my comfort zone and made me WAKE UP- my heart is wide open and there are no excuses anymore but to be true to myself and my values and to live my life and fulfill my purpose with full determination.

Any questions?

Check out some Frequently Asked Questions or get in touch with us on the form below


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.
