Join us for 7 days of healing, restoration and truth-seeking.
JULY 3RD – 10TH
Nestled in the majestic Sangre de Cristo mountains of southern Colorado, amongst a rugged, wild and achingly still landscape, Blazing Mountain Retreat Center is a space designed to take you deep in an exploration of your innermost self.
For thousands of years, people of the Pueblo, Ute and Navajo tribes recognized the San Luis Valley as a rich place for spiritual growth and healing. For 7 days, we will work with the energy of this long history, taking space to dive deep into an exploration of the power of the breath.
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, restore and melt back into the nourishment of your soul.
Our retreats have been highly curated to offer you the most holistic approach to healing available.
BREATHCAMP USA INCLUDES:
The foundation of this camp is rooted in our innovative Seeds of Alchemy Intensive program, purposely designed to create change.
This isn’t theory, it’s about using fun exercises, discovering how much power you really have, using guided breathwork sessions to embody it, and putting it to good use – immediately. With the guidance our Teachers give, you won’t just talk about change, you will become it.
This event offers you the opportunity to take a deep dive into the core of your identity, emerging victorious and bringing back with you the treasures that await.
So come and join us as we celebrate the graduation of some of our current students crossing the final threshold into Breathwork Facilitation and Self Mastery, and Immerse yourself in the breath, our community, and the magnificence of our Colorado location.

Yes. In order for us create a safe space for people to dive deep, and for true healing, growth and transformation to take place, we have limited people from coming in and out at different times through out the 7 days.
No this is not an option for Colorado BreathCamp.
Yes. When you go through the registration form, you’ll come across a room request form where you can request anyone you would like to share a room with. If you’re booking last minute we may not be able to accommodate your request but we promise to do the absolute best we can!

Blazing Mountain Retreat Center is at 8000 ft elevation and is in a very dry climate. It is easy to become dehydrated, and hydration is a key factor in preventing altitude sickness. If you are coming from lower altitudes, please remember to hydrate on your way to Crestone and while here. It may be useful to bring electrolytes (these can be purchased in individual packets in most health food stores) to help ease the transition. Plan on drinking more water than you are used to while you are here. And maybe consider arriving a day or so before the retreat starts into Denver or the local area.
Retreat offers a unique opportunity to unplug. We request that you refrain from cell phone and internet use during our programs, both for your own journey and so you do not disrupt the practice of others. During long retreats there will be specified periods for making calls to friends and family.
There is a landline phone available for participant use during specified periods. Long distance service is not available from the public phone, so please bring a calling card if you would like to use this phone.
Family and friends can get messages to you by calling the on-site program coordinator’s line: (719) 256-5938. Messages will be posted to a message board as they are received. Emergencies should be identified as such by the caller for urgent handling.
Internet access is not available.
