The Directors and Management of Bearing Man Ltd would like to thank you for the phenomenal teambuilding event that you facilitated at our annual conference held in the Drakensberg.
We felt the interaction and camaraderie that developed during the event was extremely beneficial to our organisation and we are grateful for your involvement in assisting us to move into a “FIRED UP” era

Firewalk Initiation:

Firewalk Initiation:



  • Personal Empowerment - vs fear orientated perspective
  • Morale - confidence, motivation, optimism, spirit
  • Teamspirit - create a welding link between team members


Firewalking originated as a “rite of passage” among elite warrior societies - a mental preparation of the warrior for battle. The Firewalk is a model for fear and possibilities, revealing the inner enemy as more dangerous than any external threat / situation!! A relevant business message in tough times…
Firewalking is a proven change catalyst, and dynamic model for growth. When presented correctly, walking on fire literally and actually changes people!! It builds morale - confidence, motivation, optimism, and spirit - fundamental to positive performance and lasting prosperity
