Firewalking - National Geographic
Type of Spiritual Experience
A memory of the days when the Christian religion encompassed such skills and was happy to accomodate them. After all Jesus was able to walk on water, and also was bale to comntrol the weather. It looks as though the only people who are actually Christian and with faith are the ones in the ceremony
A description of the experience
A firewalking festival called Anastenaria revolved around a set of ancient icons that worshippers believe have special powers - to purify, heal and protect.
