Join us for 10 days of healing, restoration and truth-seeking.

April 1st - 10th

​Imagine being in a small Italian village 40km outside Rome, submerged in history and culture-a place where humanity has thrived for centuries upon centuries with a deep connection to the divine; a place surrounded and held by an ancient forest remote enough for you to unplug entirely, with nothing to do except breathe new life into your mind, body and soul. This is Breathcamp Italy-a profound healing experience you don't want to miss.

​For ten days, you'll be held gently within a container formed by Alchemy of Breath founder Anthony Abbagnano, our trainers, certified facilitators and recent graduates, with more love and support than you could ever need, so you can relax, heal, inquire and let go fully, melting back into the nourishment of your soul.

Our retreats have been highly curated to offer you the most holistic approach to healing available.

BREATHCAMP ITALY INCLUDES:


  • Daily breathwork sessions: Unlock the power of conscious breathing, release unresolved trauma and become embodied in expanded awareness with our daily breathwork sessions.
  • Mini workshops: Take part in transformational workshops on the shadow, forgiveness and healing your inner child so you get the most whole and complete healing experience available.
  • Healthy, raw/vegan/vegetarian breakfast, lunch and dinner: Fuel and energize your body with healthy, nutrient-rich, plant-based meals every day.
  • Daily yoga/meditation sessions: An essential practice to harmonize the body, mind, and spirit, daily yoga/meditation sessions are an essential tool in the healing process.

​Once complete, you'll leave us feeling restored and revitalized for life, with clarity on your direction and a connection to your innermost power to help get you there. You'll also be given the tool of the breath-one of the most powerful tools available for health, harmony and peace, and a natural way to experience greater clarity, connection and sense of wellbeing.

​Whatever you're looking to transform, shift or gain insight on - everything will become available to you at breathcamp Italy.

​​BOROGO PAOLA
​Borgo Paola is a countryside estate in the historic, romantic town of Pisciarelli. Located behind Acqua Paola’s antique springs, a lush 2000 hectare forest, where the trees hold silent memories of centuries of human aspirations and pursuits. With its love of deep inquiry and contemplation, there's no better place turn inwards and uncover our own divine, true self.

The centre features a beautiful swimming pool, a bioenergetic vegetable garden, as well as the Yogananda round shala - a 200 square meter room made entirely of wood, with full-length windows and a 360 degree view of the forest.

It is also home to the 15th-century Castello Orsini-Odescalchi, one of the largest and best-maintained castles in Italy.

You'll also find prehistoric caves, a ghost city and sulphur baths and hot springs close by.

WHAT YOU'LL LEARN:


​CONCIOUS BREATHWORK

​Conscious breathwork is a practice of breathing with awareness and attention on our inner experience. It's a tool used for transformation, as it helps to activate insights and then integrate them into the body. Adopting the practice can bring greater awareness to our lives and the decisions we make, and can enhance well-being, inner peace and personal transformation.

​CO-COMMITMENTS

​A co-committed relationship is one in which two or more people support each other in being whole, complete individuals. The commitment is to letting the relationship be the catalyst for the individuals to express their full potential and creativity. Co-commitment leads to the ultimate reward in close relationships: co-creativity. A co-creative relationship is one in which two people access more of their creativity as a result of their loving interaction. Out of the harmony of a co-committed relationship springs an enhanced energy that enables both partners to make a greater contribution than either one could have made alone. Learn everything you need to know about co-commitments in this workshop.

​SEEDS OF ALCHEMY

​During this workshop, you'll learn to tap into your own wisdom-spring, to trust your intuition and connect with your resources and guides. You'll have the opportunity to make the changes you most need and go for what you really want and unlock the inner you that wants to shine forth in full power!

​The hero's Journey

​As we journey through life, we're each faced with pivotal moments and thresholds that challenge us to break out of patterns that have been holding us back. These critical moments are meant as an opportunity to awaken to new level of being in our lives, but all too often, we trip and end up in the cycle again. During this workshop, we'll employ the principles from Joseph Campbell's, "A Hero With A Thousand Faces," and you'll learn to heal and reclaim your whole self; deconstruct old belief systems that hold you back in life, live a renewed, inspired life and become the creator your own story.

​TAMING THE SHADOW

​The shadow is a psychological term for everything we can't see in ourselves. Sometimes considered the unconscious, exploring this part of our being can lead to greater authenticity, energy, and self-actualization. When unexplored, our shadow can direct our lives in destructive ways. As we learn to lovingly embrace both the light and dark in ourselves, we harness our full power, creativity and potential.

inner child

​Each one of us was impacted by the family, culture and the environment we grew up in, and the wounds of that impact remain in our body, in the lingering echo of the child we once were. This is what psychology calls The Inner Child. Often, these unhealed wounds still impact our lives in unknown ways and it is only through grieving the wounds and healing this child that we change our patterns and live into our highest potential.

OUR FOUNDER

​ANTHONY ABBAGNANO

​Having been a breather for decades, Anthony first incorporated breathwork into his other practices in 2012. The nephew of Italy'smost famous philosopher (Nicola), Anthony weaves many talents into his breathwork practice including philosophy, Jungian psychology, spirituality, Conscious Loving, hypnotherapy and Matrix Energetics (the study of miracles) into his work.

The founder of Alchemy of Breath, Anthony has successfully taken breathwork into festivals, yoga spaces, the corporate world, prisons, the Psychedelic Society, hospitals and to the dying. His work is noted for its application in the fields of addiction, transformation, personal empowerment, the integration of psychotropic and plant medicine experiences, and the opening of humanity's hope for a heart-centered harmonious existence.

Anthony has a unique and profound way of seeing and loving people, life, and the world. This pure expression is based on his ability to witness a person in their wholeness; this inevitably helps each person to cultivate their true capabilities. His ability to see someone's soul beyond their personality is testament to his personal commitment to self-growth.

Tender, humorous, vulnerable, and deeply in touch with his feelings, he shares this love as an appreciation for our human potential, and the unconditional heart which flows effortlessly through his teachings leaves those on the receiving end feeling deeply touched and profoundly nurtured.

​Nick

​"One hour after my first breathwork with Anthony, I knew this just turned my life around. It actually changed my life so much, that I decided to take the year long training with Anthony. The training kept me committed to the journey of self-healing that I had started and has transformed my life in many aspects. I feel like my heart has opened up again for the first time in decades and the training group has become a new little community for all of us. I am truly grateful."

​Senaja

​“My most profound experience with Anthony was the amazing commitment, presence and genuine gentlemanly support he had for the teaching and each of us. Balanced in this rare precious container which Anthony masterfully creates, I was able to go to the depths of myself and find liberating strength in my vulnerability – among other expansive enlightening awarenesses. I have such huge gratitude for the caliber and quality of this work and am honoured to be continually growing and breathing in these realms. With abundant love and appreciation.”

Tanya

"My breathwork experience with Anthony and Alchemy of Breath through festival workshops, Seeds of Alchemy and now the BreathCamp/Training. This has been a profound and powerful life tool in my personal journey. It creates the space for deep insight, connection and transformation in a safe and loving container. The work is not only powerful during a session but one that is easily available to integrate into everyday life. I deeply recommend Alchemy of Breath as an incredible experience to harness the power of true presence and connection."
