A Few Firewalk Testimonials
I have worked closely with chiropractic students since 1998. During this time, I have been involved in many events and planning to help our students stretch and grow. We have done high ropes courses, low ropes, teams building exercises of all kinds, but when we considered adding a fire walk to our Life 201 experiential weekend I knew we were taking things to a new level. I researched all our options and felt that Claudia Weber’s Ignite Your Spirit group was the best. I can emphatically say “this group did NOT disappoint.”
Claudia proved to be an exemplary teacher as she shared with our group the history of fire walking, what we could expect, what we should and shouldn’t do as we prepared for the experience. She was not only professional, but very clear, warm and caring. I could immediately relate to this interesting woman.
As a 69 year old advisor to the group, I had not committed to walking myself. I kept telling the students, “If the spirit moves me, I will walk.” As we went down to the fire and we lined up in support of each firewalker and interacted with Claudia’s amazing team, I can honestly say the spirit did move me and I DID WALK! I felt empowered and I felt calm as I walked across those coals. I realized that I could probably do anything I set my mind to with the right energy and intention.
I have a jar on my desk that holds some of the coals that I walked on. It reminds me every day what is really possible.

I had never considered doing it before until I got the e-mail from my cousin. We both have been through a lot this year trying to come to terms with ourselves and events in our lives and this seemed like a perfect way to let go. I took for granted what the experience would actually mean to me. The moment I stepped onto the fire I felt cleansed in a way I had never felt before in my life up to that point. I felt a connection to the earth and the spirits and for the first time to a power much higher and mysterious then I myself will ever be. I felt my fears and disappointments and everything bad that was happening or that had ever happened in my life be released in the smoke. For the first time in my life I felt free and felt the power I had hidden inside me, and best of all I got to do it with one of my best friends. Thank you for bringing me into the light Claudia, you have truly inspired me in ways I would've never imagined :)
When I first learned about Firewalking, I couldn't imagine doing it. Then, I started wondering why I was so opposed to the idea; what was I afraid of? Friends were signing up and encouraging me to do so, but still, I resisted. Before I knew it, I was in the midst of a "soul search," and thus, the Firewalking experience had begun before I even signed up! I passed up the first opportunity to do the Walk, thinking I needed more time. When the next opportunity came around, I knew I could no longer put it off; I needed to overcome this block. So, I showed up and, I'm not ashamed to say that I was freaking out. I was not even sure what I was freaking out about: would I burn? would I embarrass myself? would I come that far and not do it all then suffer crushing disappointment? So many crazy thoughts were in my head. Well, this is what happened. I did it. We all did it and it was euphoric. Claudia is an amazing instructor and coach. Her presence and encouragement helped us all tap into and own our personal power. We were able to put aside our egos and allow our true spirits to walk over those coals without burning; without even feeling it. As a result, I found I was able to overcome my block. It wasn't burning or embarrassment, it was fear, plain and simple, and I watched it go up in flames. Thank you from the bottom of my heart, Claudia.You will be seeing more of me; I'm hooked!

When Pamela invited me to come to this crazy birthday firewalking idea she had, I knew I wanted to be there for her, but had tons of resistance about actually walking the coals myself. For months before, I was feeling lots of fear and unsure if i was up to the challenge.
I wanted to thank you for the opportunity and experience. I thoroughly enjoyed the firewalk, even if I had my doubts I would make it. It makes me wonder if there is a way I can over come my knee pain. It was amazing how I stopped hurting in and around the time of the walk.

This picture was text to Claudia Weber from Marilyn Perham. She got this tattoo following her attendance at her first "Ignite your Spirit" Empowerment Seminar & Firewalk. She stated in her text, that she never wanted to forget what she had done, and wanted to have something that would remind her forever.
When I first heard about firewalking, I knew it would be a huge push towards finding the courage and confidence I had been searching for most of my life. I honestly believed without doubt that I would walk away with more guts than I walked in with. But how do you get to the end of the firewalk without taking that first step? The signing up part was easy. Even driving to the event was easy. But that first step? It literally is the hardest!
Kimberly got "Fire" tattoos on her feet following her "Ignite your Spirit" Empowerment Seminar & Firewalk. She sent this picure of her feet with her testimonial.
The firewalk was the most amazing experience I have ever done in my 61 years. Claudia and her support staff, including Eizabeth & MaryBeth made sure that everyone felt comfortable and welcome. The fire tenders did an outstanding job tending the fire. This was the time that I put my fears into the fire replacing it with confidence, peace and happiness. Before the walk I wrote down my fears on a piece of paper, took a pinch of cedar shavings and threw them into the fire. As I was washing my feet this giant wave of peace and happiness spread through my soul. I wanted to walk again and so I did and I still wanted to do it again. After the firewalk Claudia showed us arrow breaking. I decided that I had to try so I did. The confidence I had after the firewalk carried me through the snap of the arrow. As a retired teacher I went to a lot of seminars & conferences during my tenure, but not one ever made me feel as wonderful as this firewalk! I can't wait for the next one because I want to be there.
Many thanks for the firewalk! It was fantastic. Really a great experience. Also, I was really impressed by your support crew. I really wish we had someone up here (Alaska USA) leading firewalks. I would walk often if it were available. I'm a scientist, but there is something magical about firewalking, something that impacts my psyche in truly positive ways.

I would like to share with you my firewalk experience. First of all, when my wife Tammy told me about it I was excited and scared at the same time. Even though I was scared I was set on doing this.
Thank you Claudia! Every time I participate in your firewalks, I have an even more amazing experience than the last! This was a perfect night, in a perfect place (the New Clairvaix Monastery & Vineyard in Vina Ca) and we made new friends. Amazing breakthroughs came to me like an intense meditation infused by fire and experience, so that they will burn in my heart for a long time to come. Thank you!

"Thank you Claudia, for an amazing night!"
"Thank you Claudia, it was truly an incredible experience with an amazing instructor!
And to think that Tammy and I helped the 86 year old Trappist Monk take his shoes
and socks off, so he could walk across the fire! Such a blessing..."
I just walked across red hot coals that were 1,400 degrees F...one of the most amazing life experiences!
Really proves the power of your mind and thoughts!
Last night, we drove to Chico Ca to participate in Claudia Weber's Ignite your Spirit authentic firewalk under the guidance of Claudia herself. We watched a huge pile of cedar firewood go up in flames, then burn down to coals, and then we walkd across the coals, to the sound of two drummers drumming, the natural sounds of the surrounding forest (the frogs from the nearby pond were competing with the crickets and the drummers for audial supremacy). The night was clear -- with the moon and stars giving the whole experience a most perfect atmosphere - and the setting was beautiful. The coals were certainly hot, but we survived (albeit with slightly tender soles, but no pain at all and sadly it was gone in a few hours. We loved it, because it proved to us that the fire was real.). It's definitely a fun experience so we recommend giving it a try if you get the chance.
