A TopMind in the cold – part 2 – (A VICE documentary)

The American subdivision of VICE and others, including Anne-Johan Willemsen from TopMind, embarked on their voyage with Wim rather skeptical. Yet this took a drastic yet interesting spin after a couple of days… Watch the video by clicking. (short cut to expedition in Poland at 18′:51″).

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.

To demonstrate that any human can learn his methods, Wim offered to teach me and a team of Vice Media (Matt Shea and Daisy-May Hudson) to climb a freezing cold mountain in their shorts without getting cold. But when we signed up for the training, we had no idea that the so-called Iceman was planning to lead us on a psychedelic journey that circled the chasm between science, spirituality and mystery.

Thanks Daisy and Matt for this inspiring story!

Enjoy the film!
