Antony Cholerton

(Founder and Council Guide)

Antony Cholerton, a trained Council Guide, founded The Children’s Fire Movement C.I.C back in 2012. He currently lives near Bude, Cornwall in the UK along with his wife and three beautiful children.

For many years he has dedicated his life to delving more deeply into the human condition and has studied both contemporary and indigenous disciplines for evoking positive, life-enhancing changes within individuals and community groups. His passion has always been with the earth wisdom teachings (or Medicine as it is known).

He has recently completed coding phase one of the buddygroups support platform that will be used by the CFM ( and other trainers, therapists and organisations) to more comprehensively support participants whilst running personal development programmes.

His main passion is in contributing support, through the Children’s Fire Movement, towards providing a beautiful, life-affirming legacy for our future generations.

Padraig Murphy

(Council Guide)

Fascinated by electromagnetism from a young age Pádraig has been interested in the ‘seen’ and the ‘unseen’, the physical and the non physical. Electromagnetism cannot be seen itself, yet we see its effect every day in the physical world we live in and experience. It conjures up a reality that we call our universe and without it we would not exist in the way we do. A Shakespeare quote sums it up for him:

There are more things in heaven and earth, Horatio, than are dreamt of in your philosophy.
– Hamlet (1.5.167-8), Hamlet to Horatio

Pádraig has always been interested in how things work – be it machines or humans. What is the energy behind the manifestation we see, the unseen that drives the seen? As humans we seem to have great paradoxes that can baffle us even when we know them and the ultimate is how we create so much conflict when all we want is peace. Something does not add up here – so how do we get what we want then?

He has looked for ways to understand these apparent paradoxes in order to understand his own life. In the process he is learning how to live in a way that results in more peace and happiness as an everyday experience.

There are many ways to do this and everyone needs to find the way that suits themselves. Having been on his own journey of understanding and healing he wants to support others who are on their journey – being part of buddygroups is his way of bringing this into reality.
