Feline brave? Join Cats Protection and put your nerves to the test with an exciting firewalk!

Full training and support will be provided by instructor Karen Sterling, who has safely guided thousands of people of all ages over hot coals. Operating for over three decades, Karen is recognised as one of the most experienced firewalking instructors in the UK and Europe.

All participants will go through the private motivational psychology Fear Buster seminar called “Learn or Burn” designed to equip you with the resources to walk unharmed across 20’ of wood embers burning at 1236 degrees Fahrenheit.

This truly is an opportunity to step outside of your comfort zone and into a new experience.

  • All fitness levels

Once you have registered and everyone is ready, you will undergo a training session in a private room away from family and friends. Everyone must take part in this training, it’s the best part, and the firewalk is a bonus!

The training is based around proven motivational and psychological methods. It doesn’t involve any elements of hypnosis, spiritual training, chanting, ‘brainwashing’, voodoo or any similar methodologies. It’s great fun!

The Instructor is a world class authorised Blaze ’Fire Master’ Instructor who has undergone a minimum of 200 separate firewalking events at different locations at different times of the year and with varying weather conditions as part of the fire team before being invited to train as a Blaze Instructor.
