Do I need to be a Firewalk Instructor?
No, the Firewalk Gathering is open to everyone interested in Firewalking. Of course, it has been put together for Firewalk Instructors but anyone can attend. When you complete the Registration Form you will be asked to advise on your level of Firewalk Qualification or experience.
Is accommodation included?
Yes. Accommodation is included in the ticket price. The accommodation provided is in the sumptuous, heated yurts. Accommodation is same sex, dormitory stye with 4 people to a yurt. If you are booking as a couple, we will attempt to accommodate this, but cannot guarantee a private yurt. If this arrangement is not suitable, then we can offer a ticket excluding accommodation. If you are staying off site, we are not responsible for transfers to and from the event from you accommodation. All meals are included in either ticket.
If you are booking as a couple or a group, please contact us.
Do I have to attend all the talks and workshops?
The theme for this years Firewalk Gathering is Sharing and we hope that there will be something of interest to all attending. That said, we understand not everything will be of interest to everyone so you are welcome to relax in the Mediation Room, hang out in the Chill Out Room or go exploring the beautiful countryside.
If you are unable to commit to the full event, but would still be interested in attending, please contact us below.
Similarly, we are able to offer ‘Evening Only’ tickets. Come and join us for dinner followed by a firewalk.
I will be flying in. How do I get from the airport to the Firewalk Gathering?
When your booking is confirmed, we will issue detailed advice on travel, but Southampton Airport or London Gatwick airports are approximately 1 hour on the train from Chichester. Transfers are provided from Chichester train station to the venue on Thursday 3rd October, and from the venue to Chichester train station on Sunday 6th October. Trains between Southampton & Gatwick airports and Chichester run every 30 mins (Chichester to Southampton runs hourly on Sundays).
Please note: There are several London airports (Heathrow, Luton, City & Stansted). These are NOT the same as Gatwick, so please ensure you arrive at the correct London airport.
