Sundoor Firewalk Certification Training


Change is inevitable, but transformation is by conscious choice.

The Firewalk Instructor Certification Training is for anyone wanting to deepen your relationship with fire, empowerment, and healing.

This energizing six-day / five-night retreat will be juicy and beneficial for anyone, whether you have been teaching for 30 years and want to be re-inspired or deepen your community, if you are exploring moving towards a path of service, or if you want to commune with fire.

Whether you are currently leading workshops or trainings, or you are just beginning your leadership in this work, we have designed a training that will activate, educate, and ignite personal and community transformation.

While others are constricting trainings like this to fewer days with a lighter touch, it is our belief that to truly honor the power of what we do, we need the stable boundary of 6 full days to deeply connect with ourselves, with one another, and with the generative nature of firewalking.

Come rest into a sacred, healing container while you build invaluable leadership skills, connect with your own inner fiery guidance and intuition, and experience the most potent, life-changing tools to teach and/or further your own journey.

Change Your Life

During this course you will develop a personal and deep relationship with the fire. By the end of this revitalizing week-long training you will be invited to step into your full confidence to lead others in this amazing and transformational experience. Imagine the astonishment, the joy, and the life-changing experience you will be able to provide, which will be reflected on the faces of those you lead across the coals.

Firewalk Instructor Certification Training will support you in being empowered and energized to move past any fears or obstacles AND to help others do so as well. Over eight days you will learn how to facilitate the firewalk and many other incredibly transformative tools.

This is a mindblowing week you do not want to miss! Walking on fire is not just about doing something cool or learning a new skill around tending fire (although it is those things too!)’s about seeing and doing something seemingly impossible and then carrying that teaching into the rest of your life.

Set your life ablaze.

We welcome fire enthusiasts, seasoned coaches and public speakers, CEOs, community leaders, ritualists, flow arts performers, as well as devotees of dragons. All are welcome who are called to the fire. This week is suitable for beginners as well as experienced trainers desiring to add the firewalk to an existing workshop.

It is crafted as a week of personal transformation and will also meet the needs of professional coaches who only offer the best to their clients and corporate groups (as well as those who want to spend more time in silence and prayer around fire).

This training has surprised even the most accomplished leaders because it invites you to uplevel beyond where you’ve been before. This week of in-depth knowledge, is in short, the best and most complete education you can receive, by one of the greatest teachers that ever existed–FIRE.

HeatherAsh Firewalk


When you graduate you will have at your fingertips all the resources of the SUNDOOR firewalk graduate body and the support of HeatherAsh and her team to help guarantee the success of your groups.

This journey includes:

  • 6 days of hands-on experience and leadership wisdom with Sundoor Firewalk Masters—HeatherAsh Amara, Peggy Dylan, and Stephen Mulhearn
  • 5 nights accommodations, double occupancy*
  • 3 meals a day featuring delicious, healthy and traditional Mexican food (can accommodate special diets)
  • Ground transportation to and from Mexico City Airport
  • Teaching materials and manual

Pricing: $2997

*There are a limited number of single rooms available for $500. You can choose to add this upgrade when you checkout.

Additionally, we’ve added an optional extension which will allow you to get even more hands-on experience fire tending; PLUS that means more firewalks as well. Woohoo! 

We are so excited about adding this extension option. We have found that getting extra time around the fire is super helpful, especially in the first days of being certified. It gives you a stronger foundation and extra time to build confidence and skills. Rest assured, you will still be certified and know how to set up a firewalk from start to finish during the regular program. This is an optional add-on to practice and get more time around the fire. So, it's not a requirement, just something we found to be helpful.

For those days we will be spending most of the time around the wood and fire, learning different types of builds for the firewalk, practicing all the skills, and then you'll get even more support from me and our team of returning instructors who are assisting with the training.

You can register for it on the regular checkout page.

Are you already certified as a firewalk instructor? Email to get our special returning instructor pricing for this epic week. Come get filled back up by the fire and tend alongside the new instructors-in-training.
