Firewalk Instructor & Empowerment Coach Certification


Both our beautiful, delicate planet and humankind itself are in need of healing right now. There’s never been a better time to play your part – to learn to lead the hottest workshops on the planet!

From the first day that humankind created fire for survival, this unstoppable life force became symbolic of and inseparable from life itself. As we’ve evolved as a race, the original survival challenges have, for most of us, become easier – shelter, warmth, food and comfort. Yet, as life has become more complex, so many of us have become burnt-out, fearful, held back by limiting beliefs.

Connect with the magical power of fire

I have a profound connection with the element of fire.

For me, fire is a metaphor for life. I’ll take you through a series of transformative stages – to being alive with fire and radiating this vital energy to others.

You’ll learn to connect and understand the magical power of fire – from its creation to its physical and metaphorical function in our daily lives.

As you pass through this intensive course, you’ll enjoy a transformational experience as you learn the ancient skills to share these powerful experiential and life-changing experiences with others.

The Olivia Beardsmore story

Over the years, I’ve learned to develop a profound connection with the element of fire. The power of fire transformed my life. I now make use of this vital energy source to empower others.

I enjoy an unbridled, single-minded enthusiasm for work, for fun … for life! Beneath this positive, infectious demeanour lies a burning fire of passion to do everything within my power to unleash the power of others. I achieve this by applying revolutionary, transformational and ground-breaking courses and mentoring techniques, enabling people to connect with themselves on a much deeper level.

Taking you to stratospheric levels

Those I work with learn to identify, grasp and develop their true potential. They find they’re able to develop their self-esteem to stratospheric levels and to understand this profound truth –


through our hearts, we can live our authentic, intuitive, wild, creative, wonderful unique selves.


I am an internationally qualified experiential empowerment coach and firewalking instructor. With nearly two decades of experience in the events industry, founding The Bushcraft Show and Burning Woman Festival, I have a deep connection with the transformational power of fire.


Make a living through the life-force of fire

Through my insatiable, burning desire to be a Fire Walking Instructor, I not only pass on these skills to others but provide extra key elements that were missing from my own training – specifically, an unbreakable connection to the power of fire, enabling the owner of that power to deliver heart-centred firewalk instructor training and to learn how to run safe, profitable activities for retreats, festivals, corporate training and charity events.

Olivia has a natural way of passing a sense of calm and self-assuredness that was consistent. She is an amazing listener and is able to pin-point areas to support and orientate people to support their own sense of agency in tending to, preparing for and holding space for people to walk the fire. It is an extremely sacred and profound ritual and Olivia shows the appropriate respect and passion for her role, her ability to be present and support is heart-felt and makes her a formidable woman and guide to lead this transformational program.
