Summary

Summary

An unbiased, one-of-a-kind study of a mysterious yet widely practiced ritual, Firewalk takes you through the history, psychology, & physiology of the ancient, yet now modern, ritual of walking on fire. Perhaps the most amazing revelation of the book is that more than 100000 Americans have firewalked, that thousands of new converts do it each year & that it is part of the New Age culture of self-awareness.


Summary

An unbiased, unique study of a mysterious yet widely practiced ritual, the book takes you through the history, psychology, and physiology of the ancient, yet now modern, ritual of walking on fire. Highly recommended by Andrew Weil, MD, and the infamous contemporary firewalker Tolly Burkan.
