Firewalking: One Man’s Experience

Suzanne Marlatt Stewart

On April 13 in SaddleBrooke One’s Activity Center at 7 p.m., Doug Stewart will be sharing his experiences with firewalking, when he did 12 walks in the late 1990s. Doug brings his science, engineering, college teaching, and metaphysical perspectives to bear on this amazing experience. Did he burn? If not, how can this be explained? But more importantly, what did he learn? Did he change his outlook on life? And what happened in the last 20-plus years that came from this experience?

Firewalking is the act of walking barefoot over a bed of hot embers or stones. As noted on Wikipedia, it has been practiced by many people and cultures in all parts of the world, with the earliest known reference dating back to Iron Age India circa 1200 B.C. It is often used as a rite of passage and a test of and building of an individual’s strength, courage, and empowerment, or, in religion, a test of one’s faith.

Doug has used this experience to drive his professional speaking engagements through the National Speakers Association. Come and feel the red-hot exciting insights!
