Fire Walk – Dublin
15 Sep 2018
Old Belvedere Rugby Club
Do you dare to take on our fire walk for Kiss Goodbye to MS. On September 15th in Old Belvedere Rugby Club our qualified instructor will be lighting the fire bed for those who dare to go out of their comfort zone.
Before you take on the challenge of walking the firewalk you will complete the 'unlocking the power within' seminar which is a motivational training session where you learn to break through your own limitations and overcome your fears. You may get the opportunity to board break or to bend an 8mm steel bar with your neck before finally to walk bare foot across 20 feet of wood embers burning at 800 degrees! ARE YOU READY ......WE DARE YOU.
What is Fire Walking?
Walking on fire has existed for several thousand years, with records dating back to 1200 BC.
Cultures across the globe, from Greece to China, used firewalking for rites of healing, initiation, and faith

Do I actually walk on a flaming fire?
No, the fire bed itself, by the time you come out of the training seminar will have burnt down to hot coals, there will no flames.
Does it hurt?
Surprisingly enough, everybody’s firewalking experience is unique to himself or herself. There are very obvious physical reasons why firewalking is possible. These will be explained during the training. The hardest thing to overcome is the fear of taking the first step (as it is a new experience!)
What does it feel like?
Opinions vary, a number of people cannot remember having any physical sensation at all about the experience. Some report that it was freezing cold! ‘Like walking on snow’ but others perceive it to be hot!
How many steps will take me?
Depending on your stride length between 4 and 6 steps.
What happens if I should stop half way through?
Don’t worry you won’t!
It is real fire?
Yes, burning at a mean temperature of 800 degrees Celcius! To put it into perspective: paper combusts at 320 degrees, aluminium melts at 660 degrees
