Self Discovery, Surf, and Yoga

Leave your daily routines behind. Everything you "need" and "have" to do. Take that step out of your "comfort zone" and dedicate six days just for yourself. Go on a journey of self-discovery, authentic relating, playing and creating - on a journey, where you can finally live again. Listen to the sound of the waves and the exotic birds singing, feel the sand under your feet and the sun on your skin.

In cooperation with the Rio Surf'n'Stay, Co-Happening invites you to press the reset button, dream big, and take action towards your personal goals, so in 2020 you can reach the next level in your life.

Share your room with like-minded others on the same path

The surf house offers beautifully decorated and designed rooms. If you are coming with a group of friends, we can arrange to let you all stay in the same room;

The venue is surrounded by beautiful nature, not too far away from the city and a place with a real positive vibe. The beach is just a few steps away.

The Rio Surf'n'Stay's mission is to show all guests an alternative way of living and make them leave as friends instead of guests. They embrace authenticity just as Co-Happening does and want to see sparkling eyes all the time, not just when surfing or on vacation.

The property is located in Recreio, a small, dynamic, young surf town, about 45 minutes from Copacabana. You will have the whole place for yourselves, ensuring an intimate and tranquil atmosphere with a lot of space for your work together and peace for your alone-time.


The alignment of body, mind, and spirit

You know how important it is to keep the bodies, minds, and spirits in balance. You need to make (too) many decisions every day. You also need to keep up your motivation and your trust in yourselves and life itself. When losing track of your inner peace and balance, your outside world will reflect back on you immediately.

During the retreat, you aim to reset this inner balance and support you in developing healthy habits that can help you take the right decisions for yourself and your business. This includes a fresh, healthy diet, surfing, yoga, meditation, and time to reflect on certain questions - either by yourself or with others. Regaining your inner balance will provide you with the strength to take action in the right direction.

The creativity boost

Not only children learn best when playing. For adults, play is just as essential to learn and stimulate your imagination. It helps you adapting and solving problems more easily. Plus, it improves your relationships and connections to others. The workshops you developed for you will help you cultivate your inner playfulness and optimize your creativity.

Through different methodologies such as open space technology, creative exercises, and design thinking you’ll be guided and inspired to reflect, gain new knowledge and acquire some necessary skills to successfully plan your year 2020 or start that new business or project.

It sounds more technical than it is. Don’t worry, Co-Happening will make sure you’ll have some real fun and time for yourself whenever you need or want it. To break even more assumptions and get some new ideas and perspectives on how to approach your goals, you’ll meet some local and international entrepreneurs at the startup factory in Rio de Janeiro.

The culture and adventure

Brazil has one of the world’s most varied and diverse cultures. It is a melting pot of nationalities which in fact is a result of the big European influence and slavery in the country’s past. Africans, as well as Europeans all, brought their ideas, customs, innovations, and belief systems, leading to a very unique and complex culture. The carnival, for example, is a combination of Portuguese and African culture.

It’s originated in a Portuguese food festival (as the last time to eat before fasting) which got influenced by African music and dancing. The result: the world’s largest carnival. The retreat ends just a couple of days before the start of the one-week long party. If you can, you should take advantage of this perfect timing. Get your action plan for 2020 ready and then enjoy yourself during Rio’s incomparable carnival.

If you want to travel to Brazil before or after the retreat, Co- happening is happy to share the experiences and tips with you.

Rio de Janeiro - a cidade maravilhosa (the wonderful city) - should be on everyone’s bucket list. Established in 1565 by the Portuguese and once the only European capital outside of Europe, today, parts of the city are recognized as a world heritage. The city is also home to the biggest urban forest in the world, the Floresta da Tijuca, including the world-famous Corcovado Mountain and the world’s largest Art Deco statue, being 38 meters (125 feet) tall and declared as one of the seven world wonders.

No need to mention the region’s beautiful beaches to complete the perfect exotic getaway during the Northern hemisphere’s winter, right? Fun fact: it’s scientifically proven that Rio de Janeiro has the world’s bluest sky (no joke, google it).

Enjoy rich nature and tranquillity

The property is located just 250 meters from the beach and thus from one of the best surf spots in the region. The house is surrounded by beautiful, rich, tropical nature. You’ll be able to really relax and dream in the garden, disconnect from the outside world and connect with yourself. The town of Recreio is small, young and dynamic - a real surf town with a very relaxed atmosphere. You'll notice your heart rate finally coming down to normal again.
