The Sacred Path Men's Retreat is a four-day experience that offers a safe place to discover your authentic self within a context of love, acceptance and understanding.  It is an adventure that begins with you making the choice.

  • You want a masculinity that encourages a balance of strength and sensitivity 
  • You want to be more emotionally available to your partner and family 
  • You want to expand beyond your limitations 
  • You want to deepen your spiritual practice

This is an interactive event in which you may experience intense emotions, powerful realizations, joyful expressions, deep peace, fun and laughter. It's a balance of the mental, emotional, physical and spiritual. You will explore the expansion of your soul in a context of spiritually grounded self-discovery.


What You Will Experience:

  •  True freedom. Real power.
  • Trust. Friendship.
  • The spirit of brotherhood.
  • The opening of the heart.
  • The passion of the soul.
  • Spiritual discovery.
  • Connection in the stillness.

What You Will Receive:


An uncommon experience of unconditional acceptance, an illumination of your spiritual essence, compassion for other men and a deepened awareness of your true self.  The Sacred Path Retreat was created almost 20 years ago so that good men could gather to make a positive difference in their own lives. The belief is that once that occurred those same men would choose to make a positive difference in the lives of others and that is what we have found to be true.

Rites of Passage

The Firewalking Institute of Research and Education (F.I.R.E) introduces its most wealth-oriented seminar known as "Rites of Passage."


How do you define yourself in the face of the global economic recession?  Are you a go-getter who believes you will find a way to thrive no matter what, or do you worry about money and feel uncertain about your future in this trying economy?  It is never too late to learn and change.  Using a combination of mental and financial tools, you can take control and create a secure future for yourself and your family.  It all starts with a vision of abundance, proper goal-setting, and the skills used by millionaires.  The things you once considered out of reach will suddenly be within your grasp.


The Rites of Passage is a three-day seminar that will teach participants the proper path to financial freedom, creates a one-on-one mentoring plan based on personality assessments, teaches the essence of the Law of Attraction, and creates an individual plan towards financial and personal success.  You will become a different person at the conclusion of this life-changing experience.



  • Learn the Mindset of wealth taught by millionaires who have already learned and obtained the secrets of wealth.
  • Develop the Rites by using metaphorical activities that conquer fear such as board and brick breaking, sweat lodge, walking on broken glass, snapping arrows with the throat and an optional firewalk.
  • Find the Passage with an opportunity to test your newfound skills, implement your heightened state of awareness, and optionally walk barefoot over a burning hot bed of red-hot coals in excess of 1000 degrees without getting burned.
Who is the ideal candidate for this seminar?  Simply anyone that wants to thrive in this economic uncertainty.  Have you experience unexpected job changes?  Is your portfolio not performing? Has your financial retirement picture changed? Are you 18-25 and seeking financial independence?  Is your current financial position not where you want it to be?  THEN THIS PROGRAM IS FOR EACH OF YOU !!!


The Rites of Passage is a transformational seminar that will take you on a journey unlike anything that you have experienced in your lifetime.  At the conclusion of this seminar, you will emerge as a stronger more confident person - with a degree of clarity previously unrealized.  F.I.R.E. has worked hard to ensure that each participant emerges from this experience with a set of powerful goals and a plan for attaining those goals.  You WILL discover a new person within yourself and be poised to move beyond your present limitations and boarders - equipped with a whole new outlook on life.


Dates:         September 8-10, 2011
Location:     Dallas, TX. USA (Flower Mound)
Tuition:        $495 (Early Bird Pricing of $395)

F.I.R.E. traveled to beautiful Madrid, Spain for a 3-day FIT for one of the most amazing FIT events ever.  Participants were quoted saying, "I learned more then I thought I would", "the experience was amazing beyond description," and "I am so grateful that I had the chance to experience FIT".
27 Students entered as learners and left as certified Firewalking instructors.  The event was filled with personal revelations, empowerment experiences and a shared bonding that transcended cultures, language differences, and customs.  It was a true testament to the power of the FIT seminar and the learnings of the program.

Students experienced many new activities including:
  • FireWalking and Tendering Fires
  • Walking on Broken Glass
  • Conducting Various Low Ropes Exercises
  • Breaking Bricks with their Bare Hands
  • Breaking Arrows with their Necks
  • Bending Steel in Tandem
Most of all, students created bonds with their peers and redefined how they see life, limits, obstacles, and perceived hinderances.

F.I.R.E. is thrilled to have traveled to Spain and experience the wonderful culture and country.  We would like to extend a special thanks to Enrique Juardo Fernandez and the d'arte team for working with us to make this FIT a reality.
