What’s a Fire Walk?
Fire walking is a practice that has been around for thousands of years and has been practiced by many cultures throughout the world. In many places it was seen as a test of courage, while in religious circles it was considered a test of faith. Countries where fire walking has been practiced include India, Sri Lanka, Fiji, Greece, Japan and Bulgaria. The Kung Bushmen of the Kalahari also perform fire walks.
Fire walking involves walking on a path made of embers of hot coal. The objective is to walk from one end to the next without sustaining burns. As challenging as it sounds, it is very doable if you use the right technique. Although the ability to fire walk was once thought to have something to do with a supernatural power, the ability to walk across the hot embers without getting burnt can actually be explained scientifically, and that is why even you can rise up to the challenge and do it.
Nowadays, fire walking is part of many team building activities even in corporate circles and it’s also used as a confidence building exercise in self-help workshops.
The fire walking activity will be overseen by trained fire walking experts to ensure that the risk of injury is minimized. The instructors will first demonstrate and explain how the walk is supposed to be done after which the attendants will finally get a chance to show off their fire walking skills.
