Firewalking Barefoot and The Surprising Breakthrough It Offers

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

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

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.

Feedback from our Summer Firewalk… ‘An incredible and unforgettable evening’

So yesterday I walked across 300 broken bottles and a firewalk hot enough to melt lead! The only man who could ever possibly inspire me to do this is the inimitable Chris Jones. Although I’ve done this with him a few times now, the training just keeps getting better and better. Ultimately regardless of whether you firewalk or not, you spend a day crushing limiting beliefs, aligning with your purpose and getting in touch with your inner warrior. I can’t recommend this firewalk experience enough and I wish all my friends could do it!

Taking Tenzing Across The Firewalk

Yesterday at Ealing Studios, we ran a Firewalk for Tenzing, a private equity firm based in central London. Pretty much the whole team showed up and we spent the early evening getting trained up to walk glass and fire. The energy was off the charts and it was a genuine thrill to take them all across the fires. Here’s some photos from the day…

Is it really that HOT? Yes, you can cook bacon and eggs on it…

Is it really that HOT? Yes, you can cook bacon and eggs on it…

It’s the question that is always asked.

How hot is it really? Most people don’t really get the numbers involved, after 100°c, that’s boiling water, the numbers become a bit abstract.

I prefer more visceral descriptions.

It will melt lead.

It will cook a steak.

The First Breath Of Fire… by Edward Munns-faleyev

We can now add Fire Breathing to the events we deliver. No not for firewalkers, but to keep spectators entertained while they watch the fire burn down as their loved ones get trained inside. I recently had the opportunity to attend a Fire Breathing workshop with the Fire Frenzy Team at their HQ –  a custom warehouse specifically setup to train in all forms of fire manipulation.  As the day approached, I was nervous and excited in equal measure.

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!

Commonly Asked Questions About An Actual Firewalk Experience…

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

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…

How To Make a World Class Video Of Your Firewalk Experience

The bottom line is you need an expert. Yes you can shoot some pretty cool shots on your phone, and that will capture the atmosphere, but making the kind of videos we produce will need planning, care, professionals, post production and experience. Getting a video made properly is likely to cost at least £1,000, possibly more. So is it worth it? Well…
