Ganesh has worked with us for many years. As our ‘computer guy’ he spends most of his time exploring the worldwide web. That takes him to all corners of the planet everyday right there at his desk. He is a self exploring and a self teaching guru.
Ganesh learned about life the hard way. Being physically challenged at a youthful age, he has learned how to make positive choices in life that has lifted him from living a life of non-existence to one that is buzzing with creativity. He is a role model to many. He pays attention to what he decides on and acts on his decisions with planning and precision. Ganesh achieved his dream to fulfill part of his educational background by completing and earning a Diploma in E-Commerce, attending evening classes funded entirely by himself. He lives a normal life, takes care of his parent and sibling, works, and runs his own business on the side to keep his passion for life highly active.
He was skeptical about life at one time due to his physical challenges. Today, he looks back and says that the only handicap he once harboured years ago was a mental handicap. He knows that anyone can go pass their limitations whether physical or mental. Ganesh is a wonderful story of motivation, persistence and will power.

Master Firewalking Instructor / Life Coach / Life Explorer
Kuna is Singapore born raised and prefers introducing himself as "Brother Kuna" or "Bro Kuna". After working as an Executive in various jobs, Kuna got involved in business but always felt that there was more to life than just the daily routine work life. He travelled much learning and experiencing various traditions & cultures looking for the ‘raw ingredients’ that really constitute life.
In 2002, he found himself standing in front of a pit full of hot red coals during an experiential retreat. The moments leading up to the actual firewalk gave him experiences that he likened to as "the infinite connection" which he again experienced a few days later at a much deeper level. This further increased his interests in the "things beyond" and he seriously began exploring in the areas of spirituality, consciousness, universal sciences and nature.
In 2009, Kuna did his Firewalk Instructors Training (The FIT) in Linderord, Sweden under the tutelage and instruction of Rolf & Owsa Beckman both of whom Kuna regards as his Fire Masters. Both Rolf & Owsa were two of the first five Masters trained by the world renowned Tolly Burkan, the American founder of the modern firewalking movement.
In 2012, Kuna attended the FIT Master Instructor course in the district of the Turialba Volcano in Costa Rica under the tutelage and instruction of Rolf, Owsa and John Maisel, another of the first five Masters trained by Tolly Burkan. This course produced the first batch of nine International FIT Masters coming from Europe and Asia.

In 2015, Kuna found himself meeting up again with his Fire Masters, Rolf & Owsa, at the home of Tolly Burkan at The Firewalking Center in the Sierra Mountains of Northern California. Here, Kuna received the in-depth spiritual and life messages of Tolly's Core Teachings, which were delivered on the Native American sacred spiritual grounds where Tolly lives.
Core Teaching Certificate 2015
After the 2008 FIT Course, Firewalking seminars became the main focus seminar and also as a base activity for his team building and goal setting seminars. In the last ten years and more, Kuna had focused almost all his seminars in Indonesia where the convenience of conducting firewalk seminars were available.
Bringing the firewalk experience to his homeland Singapore has always been Kuna's desire. He and his team have put together powerful firewalk programs for the private, public and corporate sectors. His vision to help bring about an era of new consciousness through dynamic experiential firewalk seminars are very much in progress.
