John Maisel

Certified Professional Speaker

F.I.R.E. Master

World traveler, adventurer, internationally recognized NSA Certified Public Speaker, and Master Firewalking Instructor are just a few of the titles accredited to John Maisel. He is known for his keen ability to transform challenging situations into opportunities for growth. He is a teacher of teachers and has certified some of the top motivational speakers from around the world in the art of experiential education. His ability to teach others how to simplify the most difficult tasks into concepts that can be successfully consumed by participants makes him a sought after presenter and teacher.
John is recognized as a Certified Professional Speaker by the National Speakers Association as one who provides keynotes, motivational, and experiential presentations. He is a dedicated and tireless volunteer for countless public service projects involving drug prevention in youth, protection of law enforcement families, eco tourism, founding member of his Rotary Club in 1976, birding, ecological preservation and international world peace projects. He is an accomplished seminar leader who has the unique ability to extract from participants a strong personal recognition of their own power. He teaches them how to be their own "Guru".

There is a rhyme and reason to the wild outdoors. John teaches the concept of aligning oneself with the power of nature in order to help seminar participants find their sense of balance.  This renewed sense of balance reinstates their ability to maintain a centeredness while experiencing a new freedom from fear.  Pictured is John swimming with a five foot long black tip reef shark. One of approximately 40 sharks that were present during a shark feeding dive. John was quoted as saying, “Once you face your fear and integrate it, you can use the energy released to provide the necessary impetus to successfully accomplish virtually any goal! Fear can be our friend if we embrace it, utilize it, and forbid fear from disabling our power“.  Even the most subtle fears should be recognized, integrated, and dissolved.

Keen insights are most frequently acquired through experience. The vision necessary to lead or participate fully is learned by doing. Even our muscles, (including the one most commonly overlooked "muscle"...our brain) has memory tissue that must be exercised in order to reach full potential. John has spent more than 40 years of his life studying with some of the true visionary thinkers on the planet in order to hone his insights of human behavior. His “Hawk” like perspective is taught to participants by sharing the knowledge of what motivates human behavior. John’s quest for Mastery in all the disciplines that he studies has provided the focus necessary to seek excellence.

When we choose to embrace Nature, Nature opens it arms to us and returns the favor. Choosing to love Nature rather than fear Nature is the first step in allowing the powerful force, of which we are all a part, to teach us the truths that bring grace, health, joy, peace, and wisdom into our lives. Even the embrace and kiss of the stingrays pictured is merely an example of the possibilities that abound for us when we open to new empowering relationships between nature and ourselves. The seemingly dangerous, giant stingrays can become our loving playmates when we learn to align ourselves with nature, have a plan, and follow that plan.  John is picture with a giant ray of over 250 pounds as the two of them share a fine lunch of calamari sushi.

Learning can be as simple as breathing when fear is not allowed to become an obstacle. John’s seminars focus on empowering individuals so that they can release their egos and become a more powerful team member. This is accomplished through energetic, fun filled presentations that keep participants on the edge of their seats and fully participating throughout the event. Whether meeting planners prefer scripted presentations or specifically designed goal oriented interactive events, J. Maisel Events can meet the clients needs. John is pictured receiving one of the incredible dolphins located at Dolphins Plus in the Florida Keyes.

Firewalking Instructor Certification is provided either as an individual or group experience.  John is a certified as a F.I.R.E. Master Instructor by the Firewalking Institute of Research and Education.  The National Speakers Association has recognized John as a Professional Speaker where he is a member of the Motivational and International Professional groups.  In the picture John is providing a personal Firewalking Certification class for Il Kang Kur of South Korea.  Since 1996 he has certified many Firewalking Instructors from the United States, Sweden, South Korea, Norway, France, Denmark, Finland, Germany, Monaco, Borneo, Puerto Rico, Indonesia, Singapore, Thailand, China, Bali, Germany, and Switzerland.  

Throughout the years John has left no stone unturned in his effort to provide high quality seminars which meet the unique needs of each client.  He draws from the experience of his extensive worldwide travels to help participants gain "empowering distinctions" which enable each of them to reach levels of "uncommon certainty" known by few, yet recognized by all.  John Is pictured here with "Jeannine" the green sea turtle befriended by his dive guide in Moorea.  Together they are searching for sponge under the stones near the reef. The photo was shot the day after his successful Firewalk for the MTV television program Road Rules.  He has also provided technical support for the CBS program "Survivor" in the Pearl Islands near Panama.

As a very active environmentalist John is in his third year of a personally financed reforestation project in Costa Rica.  97% of the dry forest there has been destroyed. He is currently establishing a 501 (c) 3 foundation to continue purchasing farm land that will be returned to it natural state and even enhanced by planting "old growth trees" which can take up to 50 years to mature, and thus have little commercial value compared to other varieties.  John has been quoted as saying, "We are either part of the problem, or part of the solution.  I choose in my small way to be part of giving back to Nature.  I am the solution at the lowest level."  He has purchased 22 hectares near Parritas, Costa Rica which is managed by his son Shannon. Over 2000 old growth trees have been planted on the land thus far.

Our love of the people of Costa Rica and their dedication to peace and the protection of their natural resources have inspired this project which we call "Portal Celestial" or "Heaven's Gate".  In January of 2007 we will begin our first tours to this beautiful area of the world.  The tours will feature five days of personal empowerment experiences which include white water river rafting through the rainforest, aerial canopy tours of the dry forest, a sunset dinner cruise of the Manuel Antonio National Park, several  Firewalking experiences, and most important a personally guided nature tour of our reforestation project "Portal Celestial" and its incredible 22 water falls, prolific butterflies and birds including eagles, toucans, and much more.

Pictured is Celestial Falls which is about 11 meters high and meets an underground spring that is so pure you can drink right from the moving waters.  At the top left in the photo are John and Barbie. At the base of these falls time ceases to exist and participants are transported to a land without time.

 For many years John has served as a keynote speaker for honor graduates and acted as a master of ceremonies for law enforcement honorary banquets.

His clear, concise presentation style and inspiring personal stories about the power of goal setting make him a desired speaker.

Meeting the clients needs with a professional, on time, on purpose attitude has provide many requests for repeat performances. 

John is pictured in May 2006 receiving one of Rotary International's  highest awards.  The District Roll of Fame Award for his many years of service above self.  He is a founding member of his Rotary Club and has held virtually every office.  He has helped sustain a senior citizens Holiday Party for 29 years.
Margaret Kelly, CEO of REMAX, International interviews John during their now famous "Fire and Ice" motivational event televised worldwide to REMAX agents around the globe.  Below is a letter from Ms. Kelly thanking John for providing a successful and meaningful experience for REMAX.

The REMAX Firewalk was especially challenging since is was conducted indoors under the watchful eyes of the local Fire Marshall's office.  All participants walked safely across the fire without a single burn.  In fact, many commented that the fire was ICE COLD!  The officer in charge congratulated our Fire Tender Craig van der Smissen upon the excellent way that he conducted all preparatory elements of this event.  As always the Firewalk venue was left exactly as we found it...with no damage.  We have a commitment to protecting the environment and respecting the guidance of all Fire Marshall's and other Fire officials.

The ability to establish an inner stillness is profound gift.  The ability to "stop" one's mind and create a laser light of focus enables an individual to manifest virtually any desired goal.  This ability has applications in business, sports...especially golf... personal growth, and in establishing the peace of mind desired by so many.  Below is a letter written after John Maisel had been requested by a medical doctor at the University of Texas medical branch to demonstrate his ability to "stop his mind".  A copy of this letter can be sent upon request by contacting us at eagleheart222@yahoo.com  

Below are a few of the many endorsement letters received over the last fifteen years.  Additional references are available upon request.
