Wim Hof is a Dutch extreme athlete noted for his ability to withstand freezing temperatures. Wim has set world records for swimming under ice and prolonged full-body contact with ice and still holds the record for a barefoot half marathon on ice and snow. He attributes these feats to the technique outlined in his book, The Wim Hof Method.
In this episode, Wim and Eric talk about how we can cultivate strength, resilience, and healing within ourselves using the three techniques outlined in his method.

Richard A Bauer says
My youngest son introduced me to Wim Hof breathing exercises over the Christmas Holiday. Here is what I can report after nearly 30 days of consistent practice: I fall asleep almost immediately, my dream states are incredibly vivid in imagery and content and greater awareness or intention. I will continue to practice my breathing exercises and grow from there.
