How Taking the Firewalking Instructor Training With Tolly Burkan Changed My Life- By Jacob Nawrocki

  It was an early afternoon and the sun pierced through the tall patio doors of The Firewalking Center in Twain Hart, California. I sat calmly in my chair as I hung onto every word of Tolly Burkan’s deep and emotionally charged story. I did not expect to feel such an impact from my time at The Firewalking Center, but it helped me gain a deeper understanding of the undeniable benefits of firewalking. I had my first firewalking experience a few months before I stepped foot into The Firewalking Center . I didn’t know what to expect, but afterward I [...]

“Ignite Your Power Within” By Mandy Leonardo

Jonah’s Journey “My Firewalking Instructor Training”
