Living the Dream by Master of Firewalking Rolf Beckman

To help you live the dream that your dreaming is our focus when we teach. Hence we boost your personal power so that you can use firewalking the way you want to. When you use the knowledge of the fire like this, in your own style and in the circumstances of your dreams, you are the best. This can mean everything from becoming an intimate friend of the fire and grow as a human being and maybe just doing firewalks with family and friends or to perform huge firewalks with the public.

However: To bring your dreams into reality is sometimes a big surprise. The change you undergo is a challenge when your dreams become your everyday existence. It’s a new universe with new perspectives and responsibilities – to fully live the one you are and still to change as life evolves. The fire is a metaphor for the challenges we take on, the barriers we overcome and shows the way to a new reality.”

Many participants enroll in the FITTM as a part of their own journey towards self realization, for the pure joy, and a special connectedness to fire and personal empowerment. The training helps participants to take full responsibility for the life they intend. The FITTM as a quality standard was established in 1986 by Tolly Burkan to certify trainers and instructors, who wish to conduct firewalks at a professional level. Since then, more than 2 million people on all 6 continents have attended FITTM based fire-walking classes led by certified Masters if FITTM in this direct lineage from Tolly Burkan, through John Maisel, Rolf and Owsa Beckman, to Bence L. Tarr, certified Master of FITTM delivering the first certification course in the CEE region in 2013.

FIT Firewalking

The F.I.T.TM is one of the most advanced and intense self-development trainings to gain personal insights while also learning professional skills like the full engineering of firewalks, including the construction of various kinds of safe pyres, firekeeping, and types of firewalking every aspect of firewalking safety, wood types, liability, promotion, working with media, developing presentation skills, and any other information specifically requested. The training consists of both practical skills development, mental exercises, spiritual and physical challenges. It is one of the most intensive development courses in existence that will truly transform your life.

In just 4 days you will go through a transformational change that will expand your unlimited potential to achieve any goal or breakthrough in your life.

In the FITTM we teach you how to conduct empowering firewalking events for your family, friends, the public, in both corporate and self-development templates. In addition to firewalking, you will also master—and be able to teach other people—accelerated learning through metaphor activities, like:

  • Walking on Broken Glass (barefoot)
  • Board Breaking with Bare Hands
  • Brick Breaking with Bare Hands
  • Arrow Breaking with your Throat
  • Steel Bar Bending with your Throat
  • Putting a needle through your hand

We will teach you how to walk on broken glass, bend steel bars with your throat, break pointed arrows with your throat, or smash cinder blocks with your bare hand, and many other remarkable skills. Plus, you will learn transformational exercises that facilitate attaining personal empowerment. Many people do the FITTM solely for personal empowerment and spiritual insight, with no intention of ever teaching firewalking. (Chiropractors, salesmen, corporate trainers, meeting planners, spiritual leaders and motivational speakers, in particular, have found this course to be invaluable.) All processes other than firewalking (challenges faced through the metaphor activities, the sweatlodge, drum journey and more) that are a part of the course, has a strong but indirect bearing on being a certified instructor and using the fire as a tool to make people grow and expand their pattern of belief.

Besides the above listed activities, we also include an introductory breath work class, a shamanic drum journey and a sweat-lodge ceremony. The training includes a total of four different firewalks concluding with a 12 meter (40-foot) firewalk. Our FITTMs bring about the most intensive transformational experiences anyone can ask for.

FIT course

There are no prerequisites for this course
and NO prior experience of firewalking is required.

After the training is successfully completed, you will get a diploma as a FITTM certified Firewalking Instructor. We issue an international certificate in English with detailed course description with acquired skills and deliverables.

The courses are delivered in groups with a maximum of 12 people to ensure every student is supported and encouraged in his/her journey of self realization. Groups remain small and intimate, so everyone receives personal attention.

Read more about the types of firewalking in the FITTM:

The Classic
Based on Tolly Burkans original firewalking seminar from the 80s, we present a firewalk that is designed as the regular firewalk you would give to any client today, i.e. a corporation or organisation. For this firewalk, we normally allow a crowd to join. This gives the participants of the instructors training a sense of the set up and the atmosphere in a professional firewalking seminar and is very much appreciated as a valuable learning experience

The 108
This repetitive firewalk gives the participants the invaluable experience of a trancelike firewalk. Since most of the participants choose to walk all the 108, they can honestly say that they walked “100 of times” when launching their firewalking career. We invite a professional photographer for this firewalk, and all the walks give the photographer a fair chance to get a good picture of everyone (photographing firewalks are difficult, as you will learn everything about it in the course) and participants can take home some professional photos of themselves walking on the coals for marketing purposes.

A circular firewalk
The shamanic firewalk. The fire is raked out into a big circle, glowing like a starry sky in the dark. Participants can move, or rather dance, on the coals from any direction. Dancing normally goes on till there are no more coals shining. This experience gives the participants the knowledge of how to teach any crowd to pay full attention to their surrounding as they at same time are letting it all out. This form of firewalking is adopted from the originally Greek firewalking tradition of Anestenaria, still practiced today in the Balkans.

The 40-feet firewalk
Any certified firewalking instructor should have the experience of a really long firewalk. The 12 meters (40-foot) is really long. This demands a different depth in focus than shorter, regular firewalks of 3-4 meters (10-15 feet). The intensity and living magic of the 12 meters (40 foot) is never forgotten by anyone who has ever done it.

The Solo firewalk
What better way to prepare participants for their new career, than having you meet the fire in solitude? This is truly your own moment, alone in nature with your decision. You walk the coals or not and nobody else is there, leaving the training with a new strength and the power of true leaders: the certified firewalking instructor.

The Surprise firewalk
We have to save something for the course, right?
