The Hero’s Journey to Love 

What does ‘love’ mean to you?  Are you “in love?” Perhaps with life, a partner, a place or an object? And what about you – are you in love with yourself, and does this include all of you or is it conditional – when I achieve this, or get slimmer, or move to the next place or city or country, or land my dream job…then I will really love myself. Can you love and embrace the gritty parts of yourself with as much gusto as the shiny parts? 

If you answered no, then take a breath of reassurance. It’s not personal! In fact 90% of us have a concept of self-love and love that is conditional, but what would it look like to simply ‘be love’?

There is so much more love that is available to all of us, but all too often we don’t see or feel it – we don’t even allow ourselves to feel the enormous spectrum of feelings involved in what it is to be a human ‘being’ not a human ‘doing’. We all have a version of what ‘making love’ may mean, but what if it’s already there waiting for us, unnoticed, turned away from and ignored in favour of something less satisfying or profound – like stress, anxiety, or that unending list of things we seem to always need to get done! 

In this two day workshop we will explore this theme together. We will breathe into the awareness of love, the its absence, and find new ways of understanding how it emerges in our lives. How we can learn to receive more!? And how would that change the perception of those who love us? 

Join Anthony and the team for this workshop as we set sail on a voyage of discovery into LOVE! 

What you will get from this event:

  • A deeper, richer understanding of how love influences your daily thoughts, feeling and actions. 

  • Techniques that will allow you to open up to receiving and offering more love in your life. 

  • A powerful sense of community! 

  • A clear understanding of the breath and how it supports your personal growth and healing process.

  • A measurable sense of progress that comes from self awareness and supported practice.

  • Easy ways to put your mind at ease to move towards trusting the wisdom of your heart more. 

Come and be held in the graceful wisdom of Anthony’s rich life experience. Those who breathe with us regularly will testify to his compassionate and strong sense of leadership and gentle, open coaxing to move you towards the best version of yourself that’s possible!

Join us for this two day workshop where we will take the Hero’s Journey to understand and come home to love.


The workshop is designed to be a two day workshop, but you can also either do the Saturday or Sunday as stand alone days. 

Introduction to Breathwork

Alchemy of Breath is a system of breathing practices that restore your self-awareness, love and compassion. By working with Anthony you will discover breathing techniques that will have an immediate effect on your wellbeing, and can be incorporated instantly into your daily life, improving your relationship with yourself, and therefore with the world around you.

Anthony Abbagnano will visit London in February to offer you an exclusive deep dive into breathwork, and how it holds the key to unlock the secrets of the psyche.

Anthony is known for his keen observation skills, his insightful reflections and his tender but strong ability to hold space. His commitment to conscious communication permeates all of his work.

Join us for an introductory session, offering an opportunity to experience first hand the power of conscious connected breathing.

This is an invitation to journey into your inner world, using the power of your own breath. Embrace all that wants to be discovered! Engage the intelligence in your heart, and tune into your felt sense (inner tuition or gut feeling) and apply the discernment to the mind to support your process, in other words, let the wisdom of the body and the breath take the lead.

Many people who have tried this kind of consciously connected breathwork have called it the most powerful experience of their lives.

If there are parts of your life that feel stuck, stuffy, dull or outdated, bring them to this Friday evening session and be open to witness the transformative power of the breath!

The Schedule:


Friday evening: 19:30 – 21:30
(weekend tickets / also sold as individual day tickets) Saturday and Sunday 10:00 – 16:00

  • Meet our resistance to change and befriend it.


  • Begin to understand our deepest fears in relation to love, by first recognising them and then giving them breathing space. 


  • Discover mentors and allies who may already be waiting to show up in our lives to offer assistance – how will we recognise them? Create communities of loving support?


  • Make a pledge to ourselves to honour the Courageous Warrior within who commits to embodying love. 


  • Place our hearts as the true leaders of our lives, and become willing to listen to and honour our deepest desires.


  • Begin to venture into the darker terrain of facing our inner dragons, exploring new ideas and possibilities as we approach the cave that holds the treasure.

  • Enter the cave, preparing for the changes we need to make to embrace more love, depth and intimacy in our life.


  • Recognise our most deep rooted fears and barriers to love. 


  • Claim our treasure! 


  • Begin our homeward journey with open hearts and a commitment to show up in our relationships as we invite others to do the same in return. 


  • Strengthen our resolve and embody practices that will support the changes we seek. 



Each day we will breathe twice and experience the Hero’s Journey through a range of structures and exercises carefully designed to help you navigate the seas of your life, in direct relation to love. 

Please come in comfy clothes, with a yoga mat, blanket and pillow, water and a pen and paper for notes. 

Blessings and LOVE!
