Bulgarian Initiation

17.Apr.2007 Our friend and Igranka folkdancer Diliana Alexandrova invited us to support her at her initiation into firewalking, which she called ‘a return to her Bulgarian roots’. The event was filmed by a TLC crew, and will be aired in Oct. 2007. Katya, Zlatina and I were deeply moved when she said in front of the camera, that we had inspired her for the search for her Bulgarian identity both in herself and in that ancient Strandja ritual. It was a true joy to walk in the fire with Diliana.

Taking photos during the firewalk was not allowed. We are expecting the TLC crew to send us some of theirs.
