Born in New York, Anthony Guilberť grew up at the unlikely crossroads of two celebrated communities. From adolescence to adulthood, he has had one foot planted in the ‘Walt Whitman’ tradition of Long Island writers, and the other in the New York martial arts scene.

On the other side of the coin, Guilberť studied Kōdōkan Judo, & Shin-shin Toitsu Aikido, in his youth. As he aged his interest in martial arts waned, and Guilberť began to look more closely at Zen Buddhism & Daoism. His interest in Daoism lead to him becoming a certified teacher of Integral Qigong and Tai Chi with the IIQTC in Santa Barbara. Since 2006 he has taught mindfulness and mind/body arts in public and corporate retreats across the country.
Today Guilberť focuses on mind/body integration, Qi-training, and human potential.
