Anthony Fidler

Welcome to EasternPeace!

My name is Anthony Fidler. I'm a practitioner of Yang & Chen Style Tai Chi and have had a lifelong passion for Buddhist meditation, especially Vipassana and Zen.

I have also had an extensive journey dealing with my personal emotional and mental health and over the years gained deep insights into working with trauma, anxiety and what is generally called psychosis.

I organise Zen Mindfulness, Tai Chi & Sei Ki HeartTouch workshops, holidays and retreats around Europe and Thailand, usually combined with my expertise in the mental health field. My students are often psychological professionals, although my workshops are open to anyone interested, especially those with their own difficulties.

I also offer Sei Ki Touch sessions on a private therapy basis and am especially interested in working with clients experiencing, trauma, abuse, anxiety disorders and psychosis.

I give lectures aimed at helping people understand the experience of 'psychosis' and 'madness' and the possibilities of growing out of a susceptibility to these states without resorting to medication.

I tend to move between London, Switzerland, Italy and Luxembourg but am open to invitations to share my work anywhere. I taught a workshop on Mindfulness for Psychosis in Brazil in 2017.

Bodhizendo Zen Centre

Bodhizendo Zen Centre

  • Traditional Zen shared in a spiritual but non-religious context
  • Informed by Western Mindfulness teaching and relevant to the 'real' world.
  • Japanese Hara based practices for authentic aliveness.
  • An experiential exploration of the work inspired by Authentic Movement & Dance.

As the Dalai Lama says, "Misery is a Reality, but Suffering is a Choice".

I hope to give people that choice with these sharings.

What is Sei Ki HeartTouch? - Click Here for a short video introduction.

Sei Ki HeartTouch in Switzerland

Sei Ki HeartTouch in Switzerland

Sei Ki as a Compassion Practice

Sei Ki originated as a high level form of Shiatsu, and the practice goes very deep, but it's opening level is simply about developing the capacity to let go of one's emotional armour and to connect with another person with an open heart.

In doing so, both bodies start to release oxytocin and there is a simple, good feel of really being together. And it is the ultimate stress healing.

I teach this practice to people who generally have no interest in working as a professional bodywork therapist and simply want to learn to connect emotionally with others and themselves with more heart and sensitivity.

Sei Ki Treatments

The foundation of Sei Ki is the capacity to give total, sustained, non-judgemental attention to another person, while at the same time not losing connection with oneself. This relationship allows the receiver to experience themselves with far greater clarity than is usual for them and this facilitates growth and change.

The touch can be on or off the body, but when on the body it is usually gentle, not pressure based and is given through the clothes like Shiatsu or Thai Massage.

Sessions are often 'interesting'. I simply work with and facilitate whatever movement (or stillness) wants to come through, allowing the body to find a higher state of balance within itself.

And this usually feels great afterwards...

I am especially interested in working with clients experiencing, trauma, abuse, anxiety disorders and psychosis, although anyone interested in working with me is welcome.
