Walking through fire could help you to overcome fear by doing something you thought impossible.

That's the claim of Blaze, the company running an upcoming firewalking event raising money for Isabel Hospice.

This thrilling event will take place on Sunday, November 12, 2023, at Sherrardswood School, Welwyn, and promises an exhilarating experience like no other.

Participants at the forthcoming New Moon Firewalk will embark on a transformative journey, learning to overcome fear and face challenges head-on during Blaze’s unique 'Learn or Burn' training.

This training will empower participants to confront self-limiting beliefs and release the thoughts that are holding them back, setting the stage for a powerful act of bravery.

Attendees will boldly traverse barefoot across burning hot embers. This extraordinary feat is not only a physical challenge but also a mental one, taking participants step by step into a mind shift that will resonate long after the event has concluded.

The event organisers, Isabel Hospice, claim those who have previously taken part have reported an unparalleled euphoria and sense of accomplishment from this daring act.




Colleagues and friends can go head to head, cheering each other on and building stronger bonds through shared experiences, or participants can take on the challenge solo.

Holly Nelson, fundraising events manager at Welwyn Garden City-based Isabel Hospice, highlights the benefits of the fire walk for businesses, saying: "Firewalking is an empowering and unforgettable experience that is ideal for corporate team building.

Through this shared experience, your team will develop a deeper level of trust and communication that will translate to improved performance in the workplace, as well as boosted morale from shared momentum.

"Challenge your team to push past their comfort zones and overcome fear, developing the resilience needed to tackle any challenge!"

The event will be taking place under the new moon, and a New Moon Ritual will also be available to those who wish to take part that claims to help participants release old negativity and bring in, and manifest, a new positive outlook, though breathwork and meditation.
