These are some of the most commonly asked questions on firewalking. Please can you explain what the firewalk is all about?

There is Buddha peace and wisdom within all of us – … the secret is to find and retrieve it. There’s an old story about a clay Buddha in Cambodia, which was obstructing the construction of a new road. The tale tells of this statue being covered in thick clay to disguise it from marauders, […]

Amidst campaigning politicians across the pond, Forbes online posted “The Lost Soul of Mick Romney” – the content of which discusses the media opportunity seized by Romney’s team to criticise the Obama administration.

While watching the first episode of Super Smart Animals on BBC’s iPlayer I was struck by the words of scientist and narrator Liz Bonnin – as she was referring to animals I was also applying her statements to humans. It made the programme all the more intriguing. She reveals scientific research which is on the […]
