Who has firewalked?
Firewalking has been done in many parts of the world for centuries. Different religions, including Christianity and Buddhism, as well as different African and Native American tribes have done it.
During the booming economic growth of the nineties, corporations such as Microsoft, Coca Cola, and American Express used it as a strategy to empower their employees. In more recent years, Oprah has walked on coals.
Fire ceremonies such as firewalking continue to inspire and empower individuals by showing them they can shift their perspective and reach new heights in their personal growth and potential.
what is the age limit?
There is no upper age limit. The oldest recorded firewalker is 89, and we look forward to the opportunity to safely break that record. Anyone under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. Any minors under age 7 would be on a highly discriminate case by case basis.
Can my friend come and watch?
All guests, whether they are participating or not, have to be registered, paid, and fill out a release form. Just being present and watching others participate can be a life-altering experience. However, a couple of scholarship spaces may be available for setup and tear down assistants. Please contact us in advance for scholarship details.

What Does firewalking feel like?
Many participants describe the feeling as cool and crunchy, like a carpet with little rocks underneath it, or popcorn.
What kinds of wood are used?
Some wood types can splinter and produce sharp edges among the coals, while others can ooze a sticky sap that can cause burns. This is why you should only practice firewalking with a certified instructor.
Can I get burnt?
Firewalking is potentially dangerous. Do not ever try firewalking without the support and guidance of a Certified Firewalking Instructor.
what if i chicken out?
Sometimes it takes more courage to say, “No, I’m not going to do that”, especially when we are there with other friends or family members. The most important thing that you can do is listen to your own inner voice. Simply being present and watching others walk can be a life-altering experience.
When is the next firewalk?
We offer private events year-round in different parts of the country. Public Firewalk & Empowerment Workshops are available on occasion if the host is open to having additional visitors. Please contact us if you’re interested in setting up a Firewalk and/or Empowerment Workshop.
