On arrival, all participants go through a 1 hour private motivational fear busting seminar called ‘Learn or Burn’, designed to equip you with the resources to walk unharmed across 15 feet of broken glass, followed by a path of embers burning at over 800 degrees Fahrenheit.
The Fire and Ice Walk teaches participants to put mind over matter and face their fears. The Firewalk blends a combination of no-nonsense, easily explainable scientific principals with proven motivational skills, it will take participants to a level of such unbridled euphoric excitement that they will not just want to walk on fire, they will want to start smashing through their previously ‘impossible’ life barriers. The way to walk on glass is exactly the opposite of the way in which to walk on hot embers; glass demands slow, focused moments of extreme concentration. This practice teaches us to pay attention and commit 100% to every life experience.

Four metres of smashed sterile wine bottle glass lie before you, the centrepiece of a glass walking event. You’re invited to walk across – could you?
Glass walking isn’t just about beating fear
Many of you will have heard the expression “walking on egg shells”, which is a metaphor to explain how an individual may feel in a temperamental or fragile relationship. Walking on glass is an exercise in challenging and developing the mind/body connection. It can prove to be a rewarding and unforgettable experience in your journey to a greater understanding of how to breakdown sub conscious and deep routed fears we carry around with us.
No one wakes up in the morning thinking—“I am going to walk barefoot on a pile of broken glass today to develop the mind/body connection.” It is something we are introduced to, taught how to accomplish and encouraged to achieve this unusual feat to expand our preconceived perceptions of what we can or cannot accomplish.
The first step in accomplishing this feat is to change our perception of glass. Glass is primarily made up of particles of sand. Nothing to be afraid of there! However, fire the sand to well over a thousand degrees and create glass, then we have a different understanding of its properties, uses and potential dangers. Overcoming the challenge of walking on glass is easily achievable. In order to accomplish this, it is necessary to change the thought processes (negative influence) about glass we have come to accept as the truth during our formative and impressionable years, as well as any associated thoughts related to the glass itself.
The process of altering one’s thoughts has often been conceptualized as ‘mind over matter,’ but more appropriately it could be conceptualized as ‘mind over mind.’ When people make a decision to alter their thoughts both consciously and subconsciously, we virtually eliminate the ‘tug of war’ between the minds that is often commonplace in our everyday beliefs.
In the instance of walking on glass, after merging the minds and refusing to allow any counterproductive ideas to get in the way of the intended goal, the motivated person can walk barefoot with confidence, easily and comfortably above the shards of broken glass.
Being able to walk across broken glass can be an excellent way to demonstrate to yourself that lessons we have learnt in the past don’t always apply to all situations. Walking on glass is also a great way to learn about ‘instant feedback’ – being mindful of signals in our environment that we need to listen to. If it’s sharp underfoot, yes you are probably right, so reposition and move on. Just like in real life!
A fire walk is the most inspirational journey you will ever undertake. It is as the name suggests: a bare foot walk over red-hot wood embers measuring around 800 degrees Fahrenheit. No tricks, no special effects. Just you and the fire.
It’s tempting to look at fire walking and explain it with physics. But that’s not enough to dispel the primal fear caused by the feeling of intense heat on your face at the edge of the fire pit. Fear is at the centre of the experience, the fear you feel on the brink of a fire walk is incredible – all of your survival instincts are telling you to stay put. Stay where it’s safe. Don’t take the risk.
The decision to walk onto the fire is dramatically life changing. Not because you have decided to fire walk in itself, but because you have consciously decided not to let your fear inhibit your actions. Once you take the power away from fear, there is really nothing stopping you.
