Wim Hof first caught the attention of scientists when he proved he was able to use meditation to stay submerged in ice for 1 hour and 53 minutes without his core body temperature changing. Since then, he’s climbed Mount Everest in his shorts, resisted altitude sickness, completed a marathon in the Namib Desert with no water and proven under a laboratory setting that he’s able to influence his autonomic nervous system and immune system at will.
Almost everything Wim has done was previously thought to be impossible – but he’s not a freak of nature.
Quote from The Iceman (Wim Hof), a fakir-style teacher:
“Go back to the grief. Go back to the lost love. I want to bring back love in the world. Love is compelled by happiness, strength and health. If you radiate good energy, because you’re happy, healthy and strong… that’s love. So love is my mission.”
