The Alchemist (Fire Walk)

In ancient philosophical traditions, Alchemy was considered a powerful practice that gave practitioners the ability to transform base metals into gold. Wouldn’t it be nice if each of us found an Alchemist too, in our lives? Someone who could work with our ordinary selves, with all our biases, limitations, warts, and all – and transform us into powerful individuals, and believing in you is what we want in you!

Most people are weighed down by the limitations they placed on themselves. And what is true for individuals is true for teams & humanity at large.

But changing our beliefs and overcoming mindsets we have been carrying for ages – is easier said than done. It often requires a transformational experience, to wake up the giant within each of us from its deep slumber – something you need to pull your sock up and up your game and run over your fear and disbelief.

Bringing together a set of 5 transformational activities – Fire Walking, Rod Bending, Board Breaking, Arrow Snapping, and Glass Walking, Youphoria Hospitality & Outdoors through The Alchemist Challenge, invites you to one of a kind workshop – which will not just help you break your limiting behaviors, but also help you challenge your deepest fears and build your confidence in a whole new way.

The Alchemist Challenge! -is a wonderful example of the mind-body connection. For those who care to dig deeper, for instance, fire walking is explainable in terms of basic physics and is not supernatural or paranormal. One popular theory is The Leiden frost Principle. According to this, a layer of moisture between a source of heat and human skin will evaporate into vapor on contact and will temporarily protect the skin from burning. This is as long as one walks briskly along the burning ember. However, should your faith be weak – making you dilly-dally, the fire will burn you for sure! 

Similarly, each one of the activities that make up The Alchemist Challenge – challenges your deepest-held beliefs. And as you overcome each of them, the realization sets in that what holds you back as individuals & teams in your self-placed boundaries! 

Think about it – how much more powerfully could you live every single day of your life, if you truly believed you had no limitations? What could your team achieve if they thought along similar lines? 

But what about safety?

Fire-walking is run professionally by a qualified facilitator and is a limited-risk activity. In the last decade, about 3 million people across the world walked on fire in different programs conducted by qualified Facilitators. The approximate number of burns reported was around 50-60. These numbers included mostly minor foot blisters (these are of the same kind that you get while walking with a new shoe). To put it in perspective, the chances of an injury in a crowded place are likely to be higher! 

Having said that, at Youphoria Hospitality and Outdoors – we are paranoid about safety. All our Facilitators and instructors are certified in administering First Aid. Further, the Alchemist Challenge! It is only conducted after all necessary safety precautions are in place: Water stations, First aid kits, Fire extinguishers, and a doctor on call.

Identifying the missing pieces in the organization or the fading magic of it or perhaps just a lack of acceptance of the same; one of these is enough to get any organization into the act. As it is been rightly said “Acceptance first step towards transformation.” You cannot change if you don’t know where to start and those around you!
