The Iceman has shown that a man can regulate his coretemperature by sheer will, in freezing conditions so extreme that would normally kill a man. Scientifically proven in laboratory settings under supervision of biochemists and cold physiologists, he shows to be able to influence the autonomous nervoussystem. Something that was not considered possible by human physiology, remarkable. His challenges in the cold – records – are known throughout the world, for he gained the title of Iceman.
Running barefoot half a marathon in arctic conditions, full marathons in Polar regions in shorts, climbing Everest in shorts, swimming large distances under ice, and many more of these pioneering adventures are proof of his capabilities.
And he keeps on breaking records; in Inzell Austria he wants to break the Ice endurance record (one hour 50 minutes official Guinness Record). Then in Mumbay in april in Rome. He went even futher by running 50 kilometres without drinking in the Sahara, besides climbing up the Kilimanjaro in two days in shorts and finally, an endurance cold-record in South Africa between penquins. Becoming fireman instead of Iceman? No, he just shows that by will (concentration and power over the human physiology), a man can regulate his coretemperature. It means to have control over the immunesystem, nervoussystem and cardio-vascular system, just through the mind.
Soon he will instruct ten people under guidance of the Radboud University Hospital related Professor Hopman and Professor Groothuis, to implement techniques and methodify what Wim Hof has learned in hard nature. The results look promising and it is time to demystify the capabilities of the Iceman and benefit the human population in general.
Wims lectures are full of passion, wit, and reality wherein the listener is inspired to discover more of himself. Wims goal is to have the listener become participant in new insights and capabilities of both, the mind and body. His adagium is ‘we can and are more than what we think’. Changing a conditioned mind is learning about the ways of the mind, simple and clear. His lectures are endorsed by film fragments and scientific results in order not to indulge too much in rethorics only.
Wim Hof considers each lecture a challenge to have an open lecture, feel the public and thus, consider each invitation a new adventure.
So not just a lecture but an adventure, simply because the human mind is wonderous. So is the power over the body by the mind.
