In 2015 The Firewalking Center created the firewalking coalbed for this Pepsi commercial featuring Superstar Usher. This huge project resulted in wonderful exposure for Firewalking and was aired on stations around the world. This Firewalk was created, tended, and managed by Kevin and Brandi Axtell of The Firewalking Center
The Firewalking Center’s Jeremiah Johnston and Kevin Axtell worked as consultants on this Doritos commercial. Along with the firewalk and the context, they helped arrange the “Dorito firewalk” as well.
Years ago, before founding The Firewalking Center, Tolly and Kevin worked on this Mythbusters Firewalking segment. The crew came up to a public firewalk hosted by Kevin and Brandi Axtell in Tuolumne County. The two invited their mentor Tolly Burkan to come and speak for the cameras and the Mythbusters crew got to see a real firewalking seminar in action.
Out by the fires one evening at a Firewalking Center event. We got a quick and rare on camera interview with Tolly Burkan, founder of the modern firewalking movement. He shares his insights into teaching firewalking to people and what that means.
In September 2015 Kevin Axtell was invited as a special guest to the Pacific Fire Gathering on the Oregon coast. There he led an outdoor firewalking seminar for 129 people, the majority of whom were fire dancers and performers. Presenting a firewalk outside by the fire has a special energetic quality to it and it is a nice change from the standard “indoor seminar” approach. In this Video The FIrewalking Center Master Trainer Kevin Axtell talks about some themes in firewalking, why people firewalk, and how it can help to effect real change in your life.
