Imagine, leaving all your daily routines behind. Everything you "need" and "have" to do. Imagine, not answering messages all the time and being there for everyone else.

Imagine, taking a step back and dedicating eight days just for yourself - going on a journey of self-discovery, authentic relating, playing and creating - on a journey, where you can finally live the present moment again.

Imagine it taking place in tropical Brazil, listening to the sound of the waves and the exotic birds singing, feeling the sand under your feet and the sun on your skin - not worrying about anything.


When we were planning this retreat, we wanted to create an experience for ambitious people on a mission; for those, who are on that journey of self-discovery, maybe in the midst of planning an entrepreneurial project or venture.

Our own mission is to empower individuals to join forces, to provide them the space and the tools to co-create, to build something bigger than themselves, tapping back into the power of their own potential.

This retreat is part of a movement to redefine the way we live and work. It transmits a lifestyle, a new, conscious way of living and relating in the world, with ourselves and with others. 

Based on our own best practices we created a journey consisting of five elements

1) Reset

2) Dream

3) Collaborate

4) Get clear

5) Take action

The first days will be dedicated to press the reset button, to clear the mind and make space in order to dream and imagine more than our daily routines. You will be guided through the process due to creative workshops and exercises, daily meditation, surf and/or yoga. 

Because we strongly believe in the magic of collective intelligence, working with and relating to others is a big part of our journey together. We will brainstorm, mastermind and have lots of fun together while playing and jamming ideas. We will meet the world and get some insights about the Brazilian start-up scene during a day at the Startup-Factory in Rio de Janeiro. It's a good time to inspire and get inspired and dig even deeper into the cultural idea exchange. 

At the end of this journey of resetting, dreaming, jamming, playing, inspiring and motivating, the outcome shall be an inner feeling of being more clear and somehow more in peace with yourself and your goals and desires. 

And before letting you go celebrate the Brazilian Carnival with your new friends and collaborators, we prepare your action plan for the next months, so you can take action towards your goals.

  • In the end...it's all about the people... Yes, our venue is great, it's close to the beach, it has a beautiful garden, the food is prepared with love by local chefs, we put lots of effort and passion in our workshops and the Rio Surf'n'Stay provides amazing surf and yoga lessons. But we think, the most important and ever lasting highlight is about the people you meet. And we aim to make this a people's journey - to make real connections and friendships that last. Because...actually, that nurtures our souls the most! Looking forward to meeting you soon! :)
