Fire Walk FAQs

The participants will undergo training of around one hour. When the fire has burned to red-hot embers it is raked level and prepared for the walk. Participants go to the fire –remove their footwear and one by one are invited to walk the coals.
No. The fire is very real. The embers will be glowing red-hot –we can often measure the temperature at around 1200 degrees Fahrenheit. You will have bare feet, and they will not have been treated in any way.
The sensation is described by some as walking on eggshells, others as walking on hot sand. Each walker has his or her own experience. I have not known walkers to experience pain, indeed when the opportunity arises many will walk across the coals more than once.
There is no preparation to undertake. No treatment of the feet or mental exercise, just the training provided at the seminar. You should abstain from the consumption of alcohol or drugs prior to the event.

Any person who is in the opinion of the trainer unfit to participate will NOT be permitted to take part.

There is no strenuous physical exercise involved. If you can walk normally then you should manage the Fire Walk perfectly well. If you have any doubts please consult your GP before attending.
There is no special clothing required. Casual comfortable clothes are best. Please remember fires can be quite dirty and clothes may become ash stained. Footwear needs to be easy to remove, and will need to be replaced before going back indoors so a hand towel might be a good idea.Flip flops are a good idea, especially if the ground is cold. Nail varnish and toe rings are fine
We have many people walk who were pregnant, had diabetes, stroke survivors, Blind and many other conditions.None have been an issue, however we always recommend if in doubt seek advice from your doctor
There is an inherent risk in any activity involving fire. It is important that participants pay attention to all the training and heed the advice and instruction of the trainer, firewatchers and spotters. Whilst absolute safety is not guaranteed proper procedure reduces risk to the achievable minimum.
No. There is no hypnotism involved. You will be fully awake at all times –indeed you will be more alert than usual. You may also withdraw at any time if you wish.
The Fire Walk is open to anyone over 11 years old. We ask that under 18s must be mature enough to listen to the training and a parent or guardian to sign a form.
