Transform fear into courage.

You don’t need to be ready, only willing.

You do not have to be a yogi.

This will be one of the most exciting nights of your life. You will become a firewalker and you will learn bone-deep that you are unstoppable. You will witness and experience incredible moments, you will deepen your connection with the people you came with, you will heal deeply, and you will have a whole lot of fun. And this one evening might even change your life for the better.

Workshops are generally around 3.5 hours. Most of the workshop—except the firewalk—takes place indoors, in a comfortable environment with access to bathrooms and water.

Next workshop: Saturday, December 2, 2023
7:00-~10:30 p.m.
Foundation of Light
391 Turkey Hill Rd
Ithaca, NY (~2.5 miles East of Cornell Campus)

$75-$100 suggested donation toward expenses; barter and needed discounts available.  For more information and to register, send email to and Venmo donation to @tony-simons-6.  Any money beyond direct expenses will go to the Foundation of Light, where the event is hosted.

In the workshop, you will be guided through a series of challenges that will show you how to achieve any goal: Intention. Visualization. Trust. Persistence. Confidence. You will come to understand these processes deeply and physically. The challenges build in intensity, though people differ in which challenge is most powerful (and/or scary) for them. Each challenge is completely optional.

The evening begins with everyone deliberately setting their intention for what they will get from the workshop. Then the fun starts:

  • You will begin by breaking a board with your bare hand. It is a good feeling.
  • Then you free fall backward off a table into the arms of the crowd. Exhilarating.
  • You break an arrow with the hollow of your neck. Starting to feel unstoppable.
  • For the grand finale, you take off shoes, go outside and walk on the hot coals – as many times as you want. And you feel superhuman.

You are coached and supported every step of the way. You will end the evening charged up, grounded, and very ready to take on life’s challenges. And you might change your life.

Photos are encouraged, and we take photos as well and make them available.

What participants have said:

"I broke through something so deep inside myself that I didn’t even know it was holding me back. In a safe, protected environment, strangers became friends and opened our hearts to each other. And then we walked through fire together. Yes! Yes! Yes!"

Marne O’Shae, physician   

“To be given both perspective and self-confidence is a truly beautiful thing. Thank you Tony.”

Grant B., butcher   

“Do not bring anything with you.
There is nothing to prepare for.
The journey takes you through yourself
No matter where you are
Each step toward the fire, is your next step in life.
Each step on the fire is the process of awakening.
Each step away from the fire
Is filled with gratitude.
Thank you.”

Ira Kamp, dentist/acupuncturist   

“A great feeling! It was an experience I am very glad to have had. Would recommend to others who would like to have some time for themselves for reflection.”

Marge Clark, aging specialist   

"Tonight was unbelievably powerful. I conquered what was keeping me from all that I can be. I conquered myself. I am filled with power beyond measure. I can create and do anything. I am my own creator."

Josh M., student
