Wim Hof first caught the world’s attention when he proved he was able to use meditation to stay submerged in ice for 1 hour and 53 minutes. And without his core body temperature changing.
It gained him worldwide fame and his nickname ‘The Iceman’.
Since then, he has run a marathon barefoot, 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.
Wim shows what the human body is capable of once you find the flow within your physical and mental states.
To demonstrate that any human can learn his methods, Wim offered to teach VICE on-screen host Matt Shea to climb a freezing cold mountain in their shorts without getting cold.
Check out the short film, ‘Inside the Superhuman World of the Iceman’, created by VICE.
We’re excited to share, Wim ‘The Iceman’ Hof will be joining us at A-Fest Montego Bay this November 9-12, 2017.
The event will be based around the topic of ‘Enhanced States of Consciousness’, inspired by Steven Kotler’s new book Stealing Fire, and will focus on the exploration of how to attain higher and altered states of human consciousness for peak performance.
The intro in Steven’s book Stealing Fire explains it best;
It’s the biggest revolution you’ve never heard of, and it’s hiding in plain sight. Over the past decade, Silicon Valley executives like Eric Schmidt and Elon Musk, Special Operators like the Navy SEALs and the Green Berets, and maverick scientists like Sasha Shulgin and Amy Cuddy have turned everything we thought we knew about high performance upside down. Instead of grit, better habits, or 10,000 hours, these trailblazers have found a surprising short cut. They’re harnessing rare and controversial states of consciousness to solve critical challenges and outperform the competition.”
