Feedback From the Sarah Spender Firewalk, November 25th

Feedback from the Firewarriors ‘I LOVED the firewalk. It was empowering, exciting and magical. It was good to hold a mirror up to myself and look at what I wanted to change/improve in my life. To be empowered to walk over the hot embers and to take that feeling back to my everyday life – […]

Firewalking Barefoot and The Surprising Breakthrough It Offers

A man and woman standing in front of a fire.

You know that moment when something catastrophic happens, like a minor car accident that could, and maybe even should, have been much worse? There’s a beat and you realise you are OK. Everyone is OK. Shock and joy flood in and we stumble around in both surprise and euphoria. That moment is a window in our lives. It’s an opportunity to confront our own personal procrastinations that limit us, hold us back and often cause us misery.

Key Insights From Investment Firm Tenzing On Their Firewalk Experience

A group of people sitting in chairs and listening to a speaker.

I asked Gareth Healy from Tenzing about his and his teams insights from taking part in our Firewalk Experience and here is what he and the team came back with… I’ve wanted to take my team firewalking after trying it many years ago as I knew they would love it. We ended up at Ealing Studios with a big up-for-it crowd as all our new Sherpas joined in too. Everyone did the walk, and some as many as three times. It was a great team bonding experience and we all felt like we really pushed ourselves.

How A Firewalk Experience Challenged Our Team And How We Rose To That Challenge

A group of people sitting in a room watching tv.

Every so often I get a ‘lived reminder’, an experience if you like, that reminds me that I may be the one standing in my own way. It challenges me to ask, ‘What could I free myself from? What am I stopping myself doing? What would be the benefit of looking at this challenge differently?’ The firewalk I undertook with my company, Tenzing, offered me that insight.

How Do I Get An Alcohol Licence For My Event (and other paperwork you may not know about)

So you are running a Firewalk with us and have decided to expand the scope of the day. Many groups will run a fun event alongside a Firewalk with us, for friends and relatives who want to watch their loved ones walk the fires. Unless the venue you have chosen has a licence to sell alcohol, you MUST apply to the council in order to do this. If you don’t, you are breaking the law. Don’t panic, it’s not that hard, though it can sometimes be a bit of a rabbit hole filled with confusing contradictions. If there is a left brainer in your organisation, someone who loves forms, detail and process, this is a job for them!

You do have firewalk insurance right?

A group of people giving thumbs up.

You do have firewalk insurance right? Yes. Yes we do. And everyone involved, be it our firewalk instructors or firewalk tending team, is a certified professional. We take everyone’s safety extremely seriously. We always have a qualified first aider on site too. And we also produce a detailed risk assessment ahead of the event too. So insurance. We are covered for up to £5million.

Commonly Asked Questions About An Actual Firewalk Experience…

A person is holding a stick in front of a bonfire.

Q – How long does it take for the fire to burn down to embers?

A – We light the fire about 30 minutes before sunset, depending on cloud, so that when we walk its going dark but not totally night-time. It takes about 70 to 90 minutes to burn down to a pile of embers. Of course you can run one at any time in the day but the drama of going dark and glowing red embers is worth the effort.

Top Ten Ways To Make Money Running A Firewalk… Number 7 Will Surprise You

A group of people standing in front of a tent.

Many of us will choose to Firewalk to overcome the challenge while raising money for a cause that is close to our hearts. But there are many ways to the top of Mount Fundraising! 85% of the money you raise will come from a well run campaign. Target should be £3,000 minimum and we expect you to exceed £5,000. £10,000 is by no means out of reach. But here are the best ways to close that gap…
