” My goat friend asked me if I have ever Fire Walked before. I have never heard of it. He told me that its a great feeling and a wonderful rush. Catching my interest, I decided to go with him and see what he was talking about. He invited me to this small pit filled with hot coals.

You don’t need to say WHY or go into detail why you don’t like it, but just simply and politely recline the offer.

You know your body and your limits more than anyone else and it is up to you to decide if this is something you can mentally and/or physically take without having you feel destroyed or regret your actions.
