About John Maisel

wpe1.jpg (14512 bytes) No teaching metaphor has a more profound and permanent effect than the Firewalk experience.  Set your specific intention and goals for your group, gather together for the Firewalk experience and take that one step which separates the fearful from the successful. Millions of executives and sales personnel around the world have used the Firewalk experience to catapult themselves, their sales team, and their corporation ahead of the competition. This form of experiential education provides the confidence to face any challenges with what John Maisel describes as "Uncommon Certainty".   The Firewalk experience ignites enthusiasm within participants and welds the group together as participants support one another in safely crossing the flaming red, hot coals.  Participants learn how to experience life more fully and acquire more empowering distinctions related to their potential.    

John Maisel is a Certified F.I.R.E. Master who has been leading Firewalks since 1991. He has been involved with International Firewalking Instructor Certification since 1992. John is a teacher of teachers and has certified instructors from many nations worldwide.  He has Firewalked safely over 3000 times and accomplished a 320 foot non-stop Firewalk. John has been recognized as a resource for ABC, CBS, MTV and PBS television which have featured programs about his remarkable work in their prime time programming. 

 Recently he appeared on the local Houston CBS morning news program for two consecutive days with Jonathon Walton on "Walton's World".  Also he has appeared on the ABC television program the "Debra Duncan Show" where he taught Debra Duncan and Don Nelson how to  walk on fire before a live audience "inside the ABC studio".

Internationally he has appeared in  MTV's  "Road Rules Program" on the South Pacific island of Moorea where he taught young adult contestants how to walk safely across a 20 foot long fire in the rainforest.  Most recently he served as a technical assistant for the CBS reality television program "Survivor" in the Pearl Islands off Panama.

 His public service activities include eleven years as a director for the 300 million dollar Moody Gardens project on Galveston Island, special projects coordinator for the city of Galveston, Rotary Club past president, and as incoming president for a law enforcement benevolent organization. John is also a sought after motivational speaker for youth groups and is a professional member of the National Speakers Association. He has been designated a Teaching Elder for his work with Native American causes.  He is one of the unique individuals whose studies of the power of the mind have allowed him to serve a very diverse group of clients.  Many of his mind training techniques have recreation benefits...especially in sports activities such as golf which require concentration and focus. His abilities to demonstrate mind control and focus were tested by a representative of the University of Texas Medical branch.  A letter explaining those results is included with this document.

Some of his corporate clients include the Benfield Group, RE/MAX, Carl Zeiss, Inc.,  Pier 1 Imports, American National Insurance, Young President Organization of Houston, as well as many governmental and private organizations. His seminars are fast paced and involve his participants in every aspect of the presentation.

"The only time that a challenge and its solution exist simultaneously is in the present moment. It is imperative that dynamic organizations achieve real time solutions to the challenges that they face through learning how to effectively overcome fear."

What People Are Saying…

After more than six years and almost sixteen hundred shows the one with you will be one I will long remember.  We have had an amazing response to the show...

Bill Murphy
Tampa - ST. Petersburg,

The energy around me was so strong it protected me as I walked across the "cold" fire.  More importantly, the importance and power of "believing in something" is so powerful.  It opened my eyes.

Carey Turner

Pier One Imports

John Maisel is alive, dynamic and on purpose - a powerhouse teacher!

Edwene Gaines

The powerful energy generated by John Maisel's presentation provided me the support and the space I needed to confront and walk through my greatest fear. The result is a sense of lightness, clarity and joy which I've never before experienced.

Walking on fire with John has changed my life for the better.  It will change anyone's life, even if they only witness the Firewalk.
