The Wim Hof Method & Becoming Human

With Daniel Cortez

May 17 - 22, 2019

Tap into your primal nature and discover the healing power of the breath, the cold, movement, and ancestral health practices. Because we wear clothes and artificially control the temperatures at home and at work, we’ve greatly reduced the natural stimulation of our bodies, atrophying the age-old mechanisms related to our survival and basic function in the natural environment. As a result, our bodies are no longer in touch with this inner power. Reawaken your power by stimulating these physiological processes with ancestral health practices and the Wim Hof method.

Benefits include:

  • increased energy
  • reduced stress levels
  • better sleep
  • heightened focus and determination
  • greater cold tolerance
  • enhanced creativity
  • improved sports performance
  • faster recovery

The Wim Hof method is characterized by its simplicity, applicability and strong scientific underpinning. It is a practical way to become happier and healthier. Tap into your your true nature and discover the healing power of the breath, the cold, and foundational human movement.

No previous experience necessary. Cold exposures are gradual and accessible to all.
