2021 has been an amazing year for the Firewalk Institute of Research and Education. It has not been an easy year for sure, but so rewarding. Thank you to everyone. You are the heart of the F.I.R.E. Tribe.
So I would like to take a moment to update you on some of the great things we accomplished in 2021 and a sneak peek into 2022.
2021 & 2022 Highlights
We have had the largest E.F.I.T. here in the States in 2021 and will already surpass that in 2022.
This year we will welcome three new Master Firewalk Instructors.
Two of the newest Masters will be women! So happy to see a balance of Masculine and Feminine energy at the Master’s level and throughout the whole F.I.R.E. Tribe.
Our combined attendance for F.I.T.s in the States was one of the highest we ever achieved. Even in a pandemic.
In 2021, Master Instructor Carlos Relaño Sanchez and his team led the first-ever Spanish-speaking F.I.T. in the States. In March, they will be hosting another F.I.T. in Miami, plus our first ever Spanish Speaking E.F.I.T. in 2022.
We want to introduce our Spanish Leadership Team consisting of Master Instructors Carlos Relaño Sanchez, Jose Antonio Penedo Martínez, and E.F.I.T. Instructor MaryLuz Sanchez. Together, we are spearheading our growth initiative of Spanish F.I.T.s and events in the U.S.A., South America, and Mexico.
We are conducting our first F.I.T. in Bolivia, February 23 – 26, 2022, and in Peru (Dates coming soon)
We will be launching an all-new Firewalking.com in English and Spanish, and more languages are coming soon.
We have renewed the amazingly popular F.I.T. Scholarship Program for 2022—featuring tons of bonuses, free F.I.T. Repeat, and a tuition installment program.
In 2022, we will be launching our Accredited Firewalk Instructor Program for those instructors who are active and who desire to be recognized as the best of the best.
Our Partnership Program is off to a great start with our first Las Vegas F.I.T. in September. The Partnership Program is an opportunity for E.F.I.T. Instructors to hold their own F.I.T.s with a Master Firewalk Instructor in a Joint Venture with F.I.R.E. Changing of the Guard.
The Bright Future of F.I.R.E.
I want to thank my good friend, Master Instructor Enrique Jurado Fernandez, for sharing the journey with me and helping to bring F.I.R.E. 3.0 alive.
After much deliberation, Enrique sold me his shares of F.I.R.E. so that he could focus on F.I.T.s in Spain and his booming N.L.P. and Coaching CertificationCourses. Enrique will become our Director of Spain and continue to be a vital part of F.I.R.E. 4.0 and our future.
I will shift my role from Co-President to President of F.I.R.E.
F.I.R.E. now has one centralized global headquarters located in Wilmington, Delaware, U.S.A., under my direction.
From a firewalker to a graduate of F.I.T., E.F.I.T., and Master Firewalk Instructor, I love F.I.R.E. Firewalking, and teaching is my passion. I am grateful to help to spread the fire around the world.
I am so excited about the future of F.I.R.E. and all of our tribe. Firewalking has impacted all of our lives. That is why we love it as much as we do.
If you are not part of the F.I.R.E. tribe, please accept my invitation to join us. Whether you have walked before or are curious about firewalking, you have a place in the F.i.R.E. Tribe.
