•Breaking through barriers
…simply life changing
Are you searching and seeking a positive, life changing experience? An adventure, a bit of excitement? Or are you just curious about how it can be done?
Firewalking is the act of walking barefoot over a bed of hot embers. Firewalking has been practiced by many people and cultures in all parts of the World, with the earliest known reference dating back to the Iron age. Back by popular demand in 2017, Different Ways of Thinking is delighted to be to be offering the exciting experience of Honu Firewalks at Towersey Festival.
This event is much more than walking on hot coals (although obviously that part is pretty damn awesome). The event will help you through your fears and limitations, identify what is holding you back, and guide you through the challenges you may face in your journey through life. With plenty of laughs and breakthroughs, left right and centre, this is a once in a lifetime opportunity not to be missed.
You will come for your own reasons, as everyone does. Whether it’s just for the thrill and taking actions regardless, or it’s an opportunity to discover your own true potential and build the foundations for your future. Everyone will get something unique and treasured for themselves.
The Firewalk is the ultimate metaphor for change and empowerment. There is no doubt that walking across hot coals with confidence, purpose, focus, and determination is an experience you will remember forever.
You will attend a pre firewalking workshop and during a few hours of outrageous fun and excitement you will realise the limitless possibilities in your life and equipped with techniques that empower you, you will leave with a feeling of accomplishment and confidence that you could only have imagined. Once you take the power away from fear, there is really nothing stopping you. After all if you can walk safely across hot coals what else is possible?
Everyone remembers the first time they walked on fire and everyone has their own personal reasons for taking part. Honu firewalks will give you a positive effect, it is simply life changing!
Frequently Asked Questions
What exactly is the ‘Honu Firewalks’ experience?
A dramatically transformational, life changing experience! While participants attend the 2 hours workshop, the fire team builds a fire. When the fire has burnt to red hot embers it is then raked level and prepared for the walk. Having trained the mind to achieve the seemingly impossible, participants will go to the fire, remove their footwear and one by one, they are invited to walk the coals. When you safely walk the hot coals, you face and conquer what your mind tells you is impossible. No tricks, no special effects, just you and the fire.
How hot are the coals?
The temperature of the coals can be as hot as 1200 degrees Fahrenheit (car engine blocks cast at 1100 degrees).
How long is the firewalk?
The firewalk is between 8 and 12 feet dependent on the weather conditions which dictate how the fire burns.
Is the Firewalk safe?
This is not something that you should try at home, Marcia Ody and Emma Bennett are Success Formulae and Firewalking Centre Certified Firewalking Instructors and they will take every step to ensure your safety. There is an inherent risk in any involvement with fire, it is important that the participants pay attention to all training, advice and instruction of the trainers.
Who can walk on Fire?
Anyone can walk on fire providing they feel they can. For this event you must be at least 16 years old and able to walk independently. If you have any medical conditions that may affect healing wounds you may wish to seek professional medical advice before engaging in the firewalk. Participants must not have consumed alcohol or drugs during the day of the walk
You make it sound very easy, is it really easy?
YES it actually is, you don’t have to meditate on a mountain top to firewalk in safety! It is simply that most people are unaware of the enormous power that they have internally. It is a truly unique experience, exciting and a lot of fun. The pre firewalk workshop will give you the opportunity to walk over broken glass unharmed and to break arrows with intention with your throat. Or if you choose to you can just watch and be amazed. All the activities and discussions prepare you for the mind-set required for the walk.
Is it a Trick?
No. The fire is very real, the embers will be glowing red hot, you will have bare feet and they will not have been treated in any way.
Will it hurt?
The sensation is described by some as walking on eggshells, others have described it as walking on hot sand. Each walker has their own experience, I have not known any walkers to experience pain, indeed when the opportunity arises many will walk the coals more than once.
How should I prepare?
There is no preparation to undertake, no treatment of the feet or mental exercise, just the training provided at the pre firewalk workshop. You should abstain from the consumption of alcohol and 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.
How fit do I need to be?
There is no strenuous physical exercise involved; if you can walk normally you should manage the firewalk perfectly.
What should I wear?
There is no special clothing required, casual and comfortable clothes are best, many prefer to walk in shorts. Please remember fires can be quite dirty and smelly.
Are Spectators allowed?
The pre walk workshop is for those who have purchased tickets to Firewalk. However, we encourage you to ask your family and friends to come and witness your steps over hot coals and celebrate in your achievement.
