Crystal knows it's a preparation tool for any conversation. You have with someone. It essentially looks at their lincoln profile. Organizes there that information at finds into a disc profile which is a really easy to understand personality profile better than that though. It teaches you how to talk to them. That has a conversation coach. Based on what. I'm going to be talking to the person about and the modality that i'm gonna use to talk to them so basically says i need to email bill to make a good first impression and it gives you a little sound bytes based on bills linked in profile. And it's amazing. Everybody should use crystal nose. Crm s keynote abuse by the way none of these people were affiliated with right right. There's no need advertiser huge talked about talked about four and it's good good My first one is rev dot com read on com. Rav a dictation service Let's imagine you leave a meeting and you want to dictate A follow up email. You will describe your phone. Open up the revs. Aft- dictated now. You can do the same thing with siri but ravitch's really reliable Person on the. There's a human being you're actually dictates. Transcribes it if it's longer form it's probably better like if you wanted to Dictate an article or you think. There's a really good idea for an article you can dictate. Let them do it. And then come back and modify edited. But i think it's a great time saver it's about a buck and a quarter a minute so it's pretty reasonable. Chances are you're not going to have really long things you're going to be doing in there. But dot com is one of my favorite tools. Love it my next one. That i doubt a lot. Same deal no affiliation whatsoever. Huge fan of gong dot com. Many of you have heard of that. Were power users here at our firm and it is such a useful tool for coaching and for self evaluation of Sales conversation and you get data back from gung dot com.

That i cannot all in on We're going to start doing some youtube shorts. I don't know if you're familiar with youtube shorts but They're all vertical.

But you need. You need a tripod. if you're going to do any kind of stuff like that.

And then i show through these breathing techniques that all the people. I thought this is after sixteen thousand people who became sake with the same injection of bacteria e coli area twelve. I trained hundred percent not sick. Also injected with the bacteria hundred percent score hundred and that changed medical books.

Oh yes. I did this with a person who could not do one who shot. Why not because. He was suffering from sippy at and i told the guy. Listen you follow this breathing.

Who takes care of you get his wayne sober. Everybody looks around over viewing what is happening. That's me we doing decides. We are doing ground breaking signs all the time all the time. We are showing where there is no speculation about that. We are built to do so much more than the way we are schooled. And that's why vision. We made it a new school gave people teachings of live wherein they meet a greater potential within themselves not in works in feeling in between. That's who we are and so when before we stopped because you are such a breaking ball of energy as soon as we stop you're going to blow people away and we're going to be doing an exciting experiment with you. Guys wind it this experiment with me. It's simple it's how understanding your breath can improve your performance so he made me do pushups and then he made me do something with my breath and i broke my push up record instantly but i would never have guessed that this was even possible where we're going to be doing some experiments with you guys. So i hope you guys in a scenario where you can do push ups with us now. If you can't don't worry it's really short that you're going to hear amazing stuff from other people but first wim spoke at several mine valley events my university and he spoke at an event in jamaica on altered states we filled an entire hot tub with ice and we had three hundred people do an ice immersion and it was incredible. But what i appreciate about women and we want to share a personal story of you before we go on what appreciate about women is despite being a real life superhuman a man with abilities that signs cannot explain witnessed constantly in hop. When we were doing a fest in jamaica translational festival on my mind valley. We have this particular event where we have this reggae band in the spiel and like hundreds of attendees and the idea was that people were going to dance but it started raining and the field got really muddy. We did anticipate the month and people started standing by the side. Not event managers. Were kind of panicking. The night was really gonna suck and then win jumps in the month. He starts like covering himself with mud. His entire body is in mud. He starts dancing in the mud and everyone else who were in beautiful outfits looking all beautiful. Go wow that mud looks really awesome and more and more and more people jumping in the mud and he changed the dynamic of the entire room now later two days later at eight s i was hosting private. vip dinner for the celebrities and other speakers. Who were there for my family and we were in this beautiful beautiful restaurant. Everyone is eating kind of formal people. Have in jackets and whimsy. My children hate an e cadence sexually on his computer down there. I'm going to ask him to come up and everyone else signals the kids. They might greet the kids but then they go back to adult conversation. Wind doesn't leave the kids alone. He starts conversing with hayden. Who my belief was maybe seven years at that time. Next thing you know. Women's on the floor teaching hate and how to do but he's so he gets an iron but all the children of the room are on the floor in the restaurant with wim doing but exercises and that's so touched my heart and it made my kids such a big fan of wimp lawf- every child. That room became a wim hof van. That was really really really special. It's red meat. The person who just doesn't give a fuck about societal convention who just jumps into life and then sets an example for everyone else. So thank you for stepping into swim.

"So they're kind of encouraging you to take okay to a couple of days off, and in fact, the APP was like penalizing the at one point saying you've been doing too much stop. Take it easy there fast guy. But. I still did the cold showers. So it starts you out in just fifteen seconds and I like this. They don't try to have you jump into cold water right away. They say start with a warm shower, get the blood flowing than at the very end, turn it to his cold as it will go. This and for whatever reason I thought fifteen seconds. That's nothing I'll do thirty and so I just started doubling every one of them. So I started with I started with thirty seconds achieved my first week and then Second Week was thirty seconds per shower. So I did a minute week three was forty-five seconds and I haven't taken any days off. So I've been doing culture. It's every day since I started out and so now I'm up to week four, which is one minute Aka. Of Cold but once it gets started, it's always this nervous feeling of like oh It's so cold, right but then once you're on it, it's fine. It's that initial shock. Yeah. If anything like I have to make sure I keep kind of moving my body round to get freshly exposed on different parts of my body because otherwise it doesn't even feel that cold you get used to it. So then I'll turn my back. Okay. Now that's called under the arms. Well, that's called. Okay. Yeah. So that's a little bit of that effect that they saw on the study with the two twins right that came up when they were talking about that surfer in the book they were. Saying that David Blaine had come by the Michigan Yeah Okay and he had said Oh I can withstand the ice sitting in a cold bath. Walking by or what? No like he came to visit this guy because he has a well regarded training program. Saying Oh. Yeah. There's no problem like put me in. I can last for you know x number of minutes forty five minutes or something like that. But then what they did was they had the ice moving around the circulating and he had to get out really quickly because that's very different from sitting stationary air in ice for sure. So the movement of the water is definitely a factor, the dog's name Zena Rozina. I. Would remember that this is great because on their website, there's an about page with every person who works for the Wim Hof Institute and their picture, and the last one is just seen a by herself and says. Dog. Inseparable from Williams. Zena all the company's secrets shamelessly exhibits herself on Instagram Oh my God I'm GonNa follow her out the door. So yeah, there's lots of little ways to get into this and little ways to motivate yourself, and of course, at the very end you have all of these badges there forty badges you can earn for achievements and I've just noticed. As I'm earning them that most of them are rare ultra rare and so I think people download this APP and they sign up for him. But some of these basic achievements like the breeding badge only forty five percent of the Wim Hof community has the first badge for doing one basic breathing exercise. Totally believable. This is I think the universal experience with Apps. Download them, and then you forget there and I think sometime tomorrow I'll be earning this the second breathing badge for having done twenty times in a row, and that's listed a super rare twelve percent and the one beyond that for having done it fifty times is only five percent ultra rare and yes. So many of these achievements already, my showering one is listed as only five percent of Wim. Hof. Community has this badge. This is really how to break Ross's and my brain put a number on it and we're like we we do you Do It the twenty days of push-up exercises that four percent ultra rare. Okay. The forward bending only four percent have gotten to the twenty times using. So yeah, I think a lot of people get this APP and they're like I'm going to do off and then they fall off. They whim off they whim off. Yeah. I like it. Thank you. So anyways Yeah. I. Don't know we'll see what comes first either all get sick. All earn. Fifteen badges. Let's say if I get to twenty five badges, I'll call myself done with the Wim Hof method. What will you count as set quote? He just have like a sore throat that's a good question. Yeah I'm not sure what if I feel like our I need to stay in bed I can't get stuff done. Okay. That kind of say. Okay. If in order to stay productive, you have to take a nap of more than one hour. Oh, new hours interesting. Okay. Sure. Okay. That sounds like a reasonable metric. But yet, it hasn't magically made my skin clear up I? Mean I've got the Xm still get some bites recently and they're inflamed. I've little. Yeah. got some skin that's still healing from. A few months back and it hasn't magically cleared up. So you know I. Still I'm still experiencing inflammation. Right, which is bad. And they the cause of all disease eighty percent of Disney. So I'm doing fine but it hasn't like magically increased my energy. All do the cold shower in the morning, but I can still get really tired in the afternoon or even listless some nights. Well, you know what I realized the other day seventy percent of life is work. Yes. We only use ten percent of our brain come and eighty percent of disease is inflammation or on seventy plus ten, his eighty coincidence. Yes. But I like where you're going carry thing. I am a pattern seeking. Using your Noggin for what it's intended for. Math. Well Ross. What would you give the Wim Hof method on a pseudoscience rating where one is something that's not at all pseudoscientific ripe like a you and I share a a huge fraction of our DNA with non human primates cousins. Okay. Yes. That's true. That's true by signs and then ten is some things like ridiculously pseudoscientific right? Like instead we share most of our DNA with coats sperm Oh. No come on nope. Silly co- goodness. Okay. Well, this definitely, you know sometimes we have to talk about how? Okay. Well, we're not talking about literal pseudoscience 'cause no signs claims are being made science claims are being made here. Big Time. Absolutely. Yeah. It's a huge part of this method and you Wim Hof talking points in the appeal of this is scientifically validated look at all the scientists involved So, four that re this is tough. I. I'm having a hard time putting a number on it, but I'm going to say seven. Because there are real effects going on. Yes. Verifiable things impressive things. It's all really cool and some of it's cold but. I. Think it put so much work on someone who really wants to Saas out is scientific and what isn't in this method that you have to do a lot of external reading that just listening to Wim, Hof and some of the other acolytes of this method is GonNa. Throw you in the wrong direction. Yeah. Yeah I think that's right. I was thinking. Seven as well. We're good US look at US everybody I also want to tip our collective hat to Dr Ron Francis. There's a video online.

"He wasn't explaining well or maybe I would just wasn't understanding the explanation but I would like do the breathing stop. Okay. Take a couple of recovery breath and not start doing pushups and be like all right. I'm getting to the same limit and so I would do forty five I would do fifty bill. It's not feeling easier. So. Then when I was reading the Scott Carney book, what doesn't kill us he described it in more detail and he said, okay. So what you do is you go through the whole cycle of thirty breasts. You hold on that last breath flip around and start doing push ups with your breath held. So just hold your breath and that's so weird to like. New? Ships. But after you've done the breathing, you start doing the push ups with your breath held and it took me a couple tries but the second day I did it and all of a sudden like, oh I get it. I see what you're saying and it felt effortless like like I did not feel the strain on my muscles and I just I see myself doing push ups. Okay. I don't feel it because there's like you've activated what's it called opiates or something you know what I'm hard pressed to say exactly which combination of the factors. We've talked about are going on here but I haven't yet let go of my breath just taken in all that oxygen now I'm holding onto it and I'm very purist on I WANNA make sure I'm doing full pushups. You know none of this like Kinda halfway stuff and I can get too close to fifty with my breath held somewhere between forty and fifty before it's like okay I, gotTa take a breath and then after that as soon as I let out the air and I keep doing pushups now, all of a sudden I'm really happy Oh this. But today I set my new record sixty push ups Oh, shit. Yeah. No Way. I could have done that nine thirty eight birthday look at me. Amazing. Living Live. So that was another real effect and I was super impressed. It is. Saying without testing it properly against other people we can't. Well I'm just saying that I was able to what he was describing was very skeptical about it. I I was like, what is this right? Right? I've been trying push ups after this and it's doing nothing. Yeah, wild. It was truly impressive and also it is the exact sort of thing that I think we would get a both answers to if we said Suzuki to hold my breath while do push shops. You. Get like well, I mean, you probably shouldn't. If there's anything that is sort of wrong. No. But also here's an example of fifteen people doing it. Yup. Well, I mean at least this one year going to be on a hopefully surfaced that you're not going to hurt yourself on the worst that can happen. Yeah exactly. Yeah. The worst the okay. That is the worst. But aside from that yeah, you're probably going to stop before you get to the point of passing out or something probably also under exercises, they have a four minute meditation. I've only done that once then under this kind of central section of exercises, there's forward bending and so women off has his own little methods of doing maybe seven to ten short quick deep breaths and then leaning over to an increase your flexibility. Touch your test exactly. Okay. So you get to do that with him. So I do that every day. And I'm limbering up. Definitely I can feel my head getting closer to my knee each time but I think that would happen whether or not I was doing the breeding share but he has his own little explanation out. Here's how you Kinda hold your breath lean over you wiggle into the position. Then you let the air out and sure enough when I let the air out I do feel more of the pain. So so there might be a little something to that Then these just seem kind of silly to me every day I do the reverse balanced. That's where you're just kind of like putting your feet up in the air. Okay I'm looking at that picture and I can't tell, oh, that's the head back there looking up, right? Yeah. Okay. Yeah. I do that sometimes yoga. So. He's just saying, Oh, you're increasing blood flow by having go the Opposite Direction Elaine gravity take blood to your head. Okay. For All the Yoga details out there it is a shoulder stand. Thank you. That's what I've been doing. And then then there's a separate entry for head stand. All difficult. So then I'll go hold ahead Stan sometimes need the wall sometimes. I. Can do it on my own, but I'll do stand for about a minute, and then there's the shelf you've probably seen photos of Wim Hof doing this like the vice documentary about him the thumbnail on Youtube is him balancing where he's just on one hand ex-boyfriend used to do this okay Yeah. So the. Ideas Yeah, you've got your elbow pushed into your body and your just balancing on that hand using the elbow to hold you up and of course, they're teaching you to do it with two hands but I can't even do that yet. Yeah. I've had no success with the shelf. Well, you remember Craig Yeah crag would do that. All the time impressive is very strong. I don't have any achievement points. No badges for the show he would do great at this APP. All right. So I need to work on that, but then you get over to the cold shower, there's videos everywhere of Oh by the way, you'll love the video of the reverse balance because his dog. Dog Or. Dog shows up in many of the videos but the dogs particularly entertaining in that one. What's the dog's name? I? Don't know if he says, rude, he should and I bet someone on the Internet knows all look. Okay. This is really Borton. Lamb stock I'm listening I've been doing the shower section through this twenty day challenge. Okay and so the IT's broken up into weeks and each week has five days. So they're kind of encouraging you to take okay to a couple of days off, and in fact, the APP was like penalizing the at one point saying you've been doing too much stop. Take it easy there fast guy..

"Good show this coming year, two killings again. Thank you so much. If you're ready to become a member to help support the show visit maximum fund dot org slash join or you know what you mentioned very briefly something that we have brought up yet, which is the tomb overeating Oh yes. Okay. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. So Often, it completely invent this right he wasn't the first or only person to do it There's a form of breathing called to more breathing which spelled T. U. M. O., and that's very similar to the Wim Hof method and there have been people for centuries before who have been you know on mountaintops in the cold breeding this way to generate heat. which by the way we were talking about methods of generating heat. Yes. This breathing method does do that. You're you're exerting a lot of energy A. so he's just kind of built his own particular pacing explanation and the cold exposure thing around this but important to know that and just a yama in general you know breathing control within yoga also. Related to all the concepts in the benefits that we've talked about So just wanted to make sure we discussed that because women breeding not the only player in the game totally that doesn't necessarily mean he's cribbing though he could be also just the concept of mutual creation where we have these features of the human body that we just happened upon Independent of one another then you know it can look like like that the might be he'd done a ton of yoga study over the year. So so I think he just kind of was adapting it and He doesn't try to like trade market or anything like right totally to mow by the way it means inner fire and my dog to me I got his name off of a funkaway calendar I was twenty and. To me is the plural of to mow. That's crazy. So there you go. All comes full circle. That's too much. Very interesting. So yes, fad other studies tell you about. Well, there's a very cool at a to`real from one doctor who took part in a study with Wim Hof about his bat and I just want to read you. I mean, it's it's very glowing sweet editorial about how how cool inhofe is literally figuratively and. He's so charismatic and clearly believes in what he's doing. There's definite good out of it, and then you get to page three almost the end. Okay and I just love this well crafted little paragraph. There is however a string attached to the Wim Hof method. That is the risk that people may think. The method is scientifically valid. Women is a wholehearted speaker, but his scientific vocabulary is gallinaceous. The word I had to look up it means Gobbledegook. With conviction, he mixes in a nonsensical way scientific terms as irrefutable evidence many less scientifically literate people believe what he says and several seriously diseased people have used his methods as the final Straw awhile stories of believers circulate on the Internet in popular magazines and our broadcast it as well. The scientific investigations are often presented with a biased view. So. In practicing the Wim Hof method with a good dose of common sense for instance, not hyperventilating before submerging and water. And without excessive expectations, it doesn't hurt to try although the effects on our health way to be proven people may feel better and feel. Because, one of the points he makes in here is that during the study of him and his twin, even when their actual measurable experience was the same women felt more comfortable. Oh okay because he was used to it and our brains are very very adaptive and they say when you're fine, you're fine and so then your subjective experience becomes much more comfortable. So that could happen to you. Okay. At the same time I'm just now reminded that he does an amazing job at keeping his skin temperature constant when he's doing his breathing and you know his method. So something's happening does something's happening it probably cures cancer he's an extraordinary individual. Yeah. One thing also worth mentioning is after we took the workshop and then this whole Cova situation started his son released a response about covid nineteen and it was very clearly him wanting to do the responsible thing say okay. Well, we've canceled these upcoming events and You know we can't say that the method completely protects you from getting covid but. It always. It always pays to be healthy and to boost your immune system and just to be clear we are not scared. Right does with all these people and they're we are not scared stuff. All of these like new agey people are always talking about how they're not scared. You need to take all these precautions but we're not scared okay it but it was very clear like all right. Well were expected to say this and I didn't WanNa say anything about it. You know everyone sending me messages and wants to know does off method treat covid nineteen financially. He takes a deep breath. No. So anyways. Yeah it was it was very half hearted disclaimer. All right. Well, I, have started using the APP the Wim Hof method. App I think if you just search for Wim Hof, it'll come right up in your APP store or equivalent w. h. m. I think it always shows up as on my phone and Yeah. It's just a handy little way for you to follow along with with you've got it on your. Our guy apply the Wim Hof method daily start and it's a big. A little drawing of Wim Hof in a barrel of ice. Yeah. With two little signs poking out of the ICE. I've taken a screen shot. That's good. Exercises to improve your well being or you're going to start doing this well as you can see I did. Do this three minute exercise and blow your mind. WHOA there shit. Maybe after the podcast because I need my mind yeah. Can need your brain intact but yeah I've been doing this now for twenty days. So I signed up like right as we were starting at these episodes and it's interesting that they're all these different modules and they're geared to help you do these basic. You're breathing exercises. Physical exercises and then the cold exposure stuff. So the main interfaces this explore exercises area everything has this kind of like a blue and seafoam and yellowy Orange Hexagon visual styling to it. All on white and So yeah, you click on these different little modules and so there's different ways to kind of achieve those daily goals, little videos he walks you through stuff he warned not to get near the water he coaches you on each little thing that you're going to do as you do it but then you can get bonus points and achievements for listening to these various challenges or Signing up for like a little side course where you learn some extra stuff. So I've been going to anything with all of those I. I do at one point pay a dollar ninety nine and that unlocked some of the features and there's various things where it tells me like Oh you can't access this unless you sign up for the workshop. So I'm wondering does that mean because we took the workshop? So I need to figure that out because it's there's some things that are still locked but essentially what I do every day is first of all, I start with his guided breathing bubble. Okay. I see that here free for a limited time it says to me, right so I'm using it like I could lose it. So it tells you to sit or lie down in a safe environment essentially just walk you through everything we were doing our workshop, but you've got the dulcet tones of Wim Hof. Sweet telling you to do it. Now I feel guilty starting this I think I can clear my results afterwards because I don't WanNa get credit for breeding I'm not doing just breath just do it okay but or is it really long? It is very long well, I'll start it out anyway. So you can choose which audio elements you want to have the breathing pace the whim voice. The pain and Gong. Okay. The breathing and the background music I always leave them all on their great sounds nice and so cows. Letting. Breezy. With, Flo. Into battle into the digest and let go. Nike We. Make. An. Leading..

"Up this crazy tent that was like outside in the snow. So it was very cold, but then they could also sort of control the air coming in and out. Make it exactly. Perfect. So the circumstances between the true brother's wouldn't vary. Oh. My goodness. It's like such a complicated methodology how they set this up. As you mentioned in one episode, they had them swallow a thermometer that would take their basil temperature. They add blood samples going they were taking skin temperatures I mean everything you could hope for you and here's the conclusion. No significant differences were found between the two subjects indicating that a lifestyle with frequent exposures to extreme cold does not seem to affect be. which is that Brown fat and cit cold induced Thermo Genesis. But in both subjects, bat was not higher compared to earlier observations. Where as cit was very high, which suggests that the to like breathing during cold exposure may cause additional heat production So one thing that they noticed as they were doing this study is that Andre automatically started doing that we're breathing. Intuitive to him in sting. Yeah. So that made them think like actually no. Now I'm extrapolating made me wonder was there something about their physical makeup that just makes that an easy way to breathe or Bro? Did he had he sort of comes into live leader these brothers because of their genetics and then he has to teach it to us right or has he seen Wim do it I, feel like you said some exposure to whims method you think yeah. So we. Done it himself did he just sort of naturally go like well, here's what you do. Interesting. Another thing they found is I'm going to quote this because I wouldn't know how to summarize it. If I tried they were Gino typed with the polymorphism for uncoupling protein one G CIT was relatively high, but unlike during our previous cold exposure tests in young adult men both subjects practiced this breathing technique. So this this uncoupling protein apparently kind of activates this process a little bit. Okay. So it seems like maybe these to have something that makes us just a tiny bit easier and then on top of that okay. You have the Bilton belief right the the motivation to do it genetic advantage. To this belief but one thing I. think it did show is that women often have more brown fat total than his brother right? His brother actually has slightly more from doing the methods. So yeah, it's amazing that it's slightly more. As, slight as that may be it at least tells us you know we shouldn't expect to build up a lot of brown fat from doing the Wim Hof method more frequent cold exposure totally I was reading an NPR. Where they talked with the DR C Ronald Kahn, a researcher at Harvard medical, school who was one of the first scientists to document the existence of Brown fat in adults in the mid two thousands anyway. So he said that people can increase their levels of brown fat by being in mildly cold environments though he pointed out the being in extreme cold environments doesn't right. You anything additional and he said the effect on the number of calories burnt is also really minimal. It's not generating a ton of energy. So That's interesting. Yeah. He said the average person will burn an extra one hundred to two hundred calories a day when Brown fat is activated. But if you have a Muffin, forget it. Oh. Yeah. A HALF A muffin. What kind of tease eating you'll need a quarter and he says, the USA Brown fat may be active for a few hours but it's not a permanent thing. Right. So that's another thing going on here is that they'll talk about the immune response well, sure. There's an immune response, but there's also an immune response in the placebo effect. So yeah. Yeah. So I mean that is true that if you make your body believe you're taking a treatment, you get this quick little hit moon response, but it's very short lived. So in the studies that they are often referencing where they injected this sort of the endotoxin yeah. A sort of fake toxin into the system that should provoke an immune response, the people who were like our. Hoffman. The studies not blinded. Those, people didn't get a little kick in the immune system, and so then they take their blood and they go. Yeah. There it is. Your Body did respond but this wasn't a real toxin so we wouldn't expect anybody to get sick consequently nobody did. Yeah. But though I think it had enough components that I think you can expect that there will be a bodily reaction to. Oh. Totally. But very shortly even if you don't know, right that's true. But Yeah. If you injected someone while they were sleeping with that, they'd wake me like Whoa I am I getting chills fever all of a sudden Oh, definitely. Definitely just clarify that. Yeah. Yeah for sure but but you're right about the blinding because the twelve people who were chosen they were very excited because they're like we get to work with Wim Hof but the twelve people weren't shows and all wanted to work with Wim Hof and he promised them hey, will if you participate in the study, I'll do the method with you after the study and he told. So so all of this contributes to them saying, Oh, well, I haven't done it yet co bright. So even if you were quote unquote blinded, you'd be like why haven't been taught top the thing yet. So I'm clearly in the placebo. I'm feeling chills and fever. crummy right now can't wait to meet whim. Yeah I mean and of course, it's not completely clear cut but it does contribute to a little bit of bias, right? So yeah, at the end of the day, does this boost your immune system in any sort of way that's going to help you long term if you have a chronic condition or whatever I if so we don't have any evidence of it yet. That I see and more related to the cold exposure. In that same article, they were talking about how the act of shivering itself also doesn't generate a lot of activity. It's not a good form of exercise by itself. It doesn't buy you a lot and they made a really good point in this too because you know often times when people are talking about the this method they're saying, oh, we'll go shirtless. Always does and I myself went on an eight mile run last night and I was runnin shirtless and I'm doing my Wim Hof breathing feeling. Great. But they were saying you get hot when you exercise anyway and you usually find out you know, Oh, i. didn't need that shirt totally heated up even though it's pretty cold out and I hadn't thought about this next step, which is that well, if your body is heating up, you're not really enjoying any benefits of cold exposure anyway your body's share your warm. Just another factor there but I've always liked running in the cold because of that thermal regulation I'm not worried about over-heating. I'm not sweating profusely totally You know that's why gyms are air conditioned. Right, so So. There's good support for low amounts of cold. You know talking like on the level of sixty two degrees or something like that. But it doesn't seem like the data supports extreme cold exposure for any of these benefits were talking about except for maybe psychological benefits. Oh you know you are teaching yourself. Your limits are higher than you thought and I don't know I think I mentioned this in a previous episode that I do think giving yourself very random challenges just to prove you have the stuff to do it is good for you. Psychologically also doesn't kill you which this might I'm Kerry. Wow you. Know Bumper stickers today. So, people. because. People have gotten really sick doing this and people have died doing this. You're bright. Yes. at least now they're pretty clear about what those parameters are. So don't go by yourself into extremely cold water. Especially, if you're just getting started, you know have a spotter just like you would if you're lifting a super heavyweight same thing around water and driving, we've set at a million times. That's that's how people die. I haven't actually heard of any driving related deaths but definitely, the water don't do the breathing method around water. Well, we're being really clear about that. I'm not so sure that is that clear about it certainly, the APP is and our workshop. But then he's also like it here's me doing it in water abry exactly, and then people are like, oh I can hold my breath now that's amazing I'm holding my breath for three minutes yeah. Let's go do that in the water you don't do it it's k manner you guys it's mckanie manner that's what I'm saying well I'm thinking about that article another thing that they brought up was this idea of training your blood vessels Somehow. Wim Hof seems to allude to this all the time that yeah like. We're training our blood vessels to constrict at the right times and to control our.

"But it was like energetic. Indefinitely I'm I'm sure it would warm up a whole body. But yeah, I just I love how everybody had their own style, but I think she definitely had her own style. She was galloping with her feet to wash. Yeah little almost gung him style or something. Yeah. Yeah. Kinda. Then after everybody had gone, we stood in a circle. Yeah. We went back inside. So we can kind of huddle up together at our arms around each other. Yeah. This was all again, pre covid. All of this would be like horrible things to do during over ninety dollars heavy breathing. In. An enclosed space together Yup. But yeah, it was a real nice moment. He brought us together and gave us a lot of inspiration. Yea. He said this nice thing. He said. So think about what's your ice bath? What other beneficial things do we avoid out of fear speaks to me because I think about like exposure, a lot psychological exposure and how important it is to making you stronger in very much. It is the opposite end. Of Fire Walking. It's Kinda. The same idea you put yourself through this kind of physical extreme. But then you have this metaphor now that you can apply to your life. Oh, Hey, I walked over the coals I can do anything. I. Sat in a ice bath. That's right. I can do many things. So, we're all standing there in a circle with arms around one another, and that woman who I wrote down here was his wife. So maybe I knew that okay, I just married them in the middle of my notes but. She said they had a discount code for anyone who would like it and they're also doing this with schoolteachers and they're starting to involve plants medicine. That's right. I forgot about that? Yeah. Oh boy, this could get interesting, which is code. For IA, usually I'm trying to imagine other it doesn't seem safe if we're talking about getting into water. Oh, God. I. Wouldn't want to be anywhere near water on Aska that's that's an accident waiting to happen if you WanNa hear our I o Oscar adventure, go check out our me a series. Do it. There's a lot. It's our longest series who boy, then he said something. So wonderful I had to write it down for them. He said we all have a bucket of shit inside us, but we rarely go through it and sift and see what's the air and at the bottom of that barrel is love. So is actually like. Heart beating at the bottom of a barrel and then just shit. On Just, what a mixed metaphor for the ages really really potent metaphor. Wow Barrel of Shit. All right. I'll have a bucket of shit. Oh, it's a bucket. Okay. Well, that's a little more manageable. At least it's not a birthing pool full of Shit Touche. fucking shit inside us. But we go through it and sift and see was there at the bottom of that bucket. It's love you might call that bucket are Amiga? LICO. Call Back for India and carries. Spanish, lessened. So after that, how are you feeling? Pretty good. I walked away from that fairly energized. I had a good time there, and as we started doing this podcast series I picked up the old Wim Hof App, Oh huff up that they had encouraged us to get. So maybe time talk a bit about my adventures in Wim. Hof are-. Cool. You'd on from this workshop and also the scientific studies that have been done on. Wim. Hof and his methods. There's more fear not, but weights I wanted to tell you. Hi, felt afterward. Afterward, how did you feel afterward? So I felt pretty good for the first two hour. You're having a Shitty Day. Yeah. I had come in having a pretty bad headache and that did pass and for the first two hours I was like, okay. I have to give some credit. My headache went away. Then two hours later returned. So short-lived benefit if it was a benefit, then the next day I was tracking this and I wrote down better today, but I had also taken a two mile walk and that's often helps. But that I had been extremely sleepy the day of the ice bath. Oh. That like that afterward. which seems counterintuitive. Or. Maybe just your body's been a lot and yeah, maybe calms down there. Carry. Let me just go out. Yes. Spent all your. Adrenalin. Yeah. I feel like I returned pretty quickly just to my baseline. Yeah. Me Too in a sense. So the next day I had a very bad headache. And era too, and if you'RE GONNA give credit to Wim Hof for the good stuff, you gotta give it to a bad stuff too. So I'm going to credit wim Hof with making the pain. Go Away I kind of have to say it gave me the pain back. Okay. Give. It credit for that a debit. Wonderful. Thank you. Apple pay. And speaking my friend Lindsay she said the best thing I've heard about one hof. Okay. I was describing. It's been calling him the home Ray Frio. She's a, she's a generator. I was describing to her the Wim Hof method and I said like what you do the and the you get in an ice bath at first, it's really cold, but then it starts to feel better and she said, okay, is there something that comes next door? See. That's helpful every now, and then when we're doing this podcast for someone to to say something like that like, and is there any real benefit? Why are you doing this and then you just stop you're like, oh Oh, there's no reason. No, no kind of like that seinfeld routine where he's talking about how we go to the gym just so we can be good at going to the gym. Oh sure because like where you actually using these things in real life well I. Guess that's kind of the whole point of this that you're getting out of your sedentary lifestyle, put yourself in these extreme situations, but then you have to. To ask, when am I gonNA need this makes sense with the gym. Really. But I think it is sometimes useful to give yourself sort of arbitrary goals to meet just to give yourself that exercise that practice of like overcoming obstacles, and here the claim is that dealing with the extreme will make you more adept when return to normal life. Actually, that's funny. It's kind of like a summation of the hero's journey. You go out and you have all these new experiences and you meet New People in the mentor and you. You'll fight these new photos and then of course, at the end of it. Now that you have greater powers knowledge and ability, you go back home to the Shire or wherever it is. You came from Tampa Wayne, and now you have this a different person. You're a different person that's right in everything is. Is Different than it was. Now, you are though wise adventurer and that is me. There's also a bunch of like a medical claims. So we'll talk about those next up. Yeah. Lots more to talk about. So we'll see again but dance it for this episode. But before we go, we just want to thank all our members for supporting the show.

"Long nerve that extends out to a lot of our internal organs, and says how this can put us in a para, sympathetic state, and so a lot of what we WANNA. Do is to kind of stick. That fuller breathing can help do that, but you want to stimulate the Vegas. Yes, we want to activate it with our large inhalation and. That's what he's saying. Just wonder what that's supposed to mean. Like the Vegas nerve. If there's pressure on it or anything, you get incredibly nauseous. Interesting well I think the idea was that. If you're breathing well, stimulation of the vagus nerve will cut down on the Stress Response Okay and that when we're stressed, we tend to breed less. We have shallow breaths and if we kind of intentionally. Deepened and lengthen those breaths in control of more that can have that sort of verse response where were easing up on our stress? Right and I think that much is well supported. I think that is true. Now you might be listening. Yeah, this makes sense so I guess that's the kind of breathing. They're gonNA do no, let's do a totally different thing that actually involves not filling your lungs and reduces. Your oxygen will get there so yeah. Yeah. He had slides for this little diagrams of the body and nerves and organs, and how things are connected, so he used this framework that you mentioned of being inside the gave and outside the cave, so you have your central nervous system, that's your brain, your brain, stem or spinal cord. Then you have this peripheral nervous system, and that's all of the other nerves throughout the body that connect to everything in the skin and all that. So then he broke that down. Saying that you've got kind of your motor system in that breaks down into the somatic. Mad I, want you to contact the semantic, so that's what we have control over and the odd Onomic, and whenever you hear about Wim Hof or anyone talking about when you're going to hear discussion of the autonomic nervous system right, so that's supposed to be all those things that we supposedly don't have control over by sneezing or the dilation of your pupils or breathing while you're asleep, right exactly and salvation your heartbeat, all of those. Those are kind of controlled by the autonomic nervous I can't control my heartbeat. Yeah, right? Yeah, no, thanks now suffice it to say yes. These things will automatically run when you're not conscious of them. They'll continue while you sleep, etc, but that doesn't mean necessarily that we have zero control affectation upon those, and then you have to define what has conscious control me. It gets scholar murky so I think in this course and Wim Hof. Keep, wanting to say. Hayes can so with 'em hoffer in general, there seems to be kind of this. Emphasis that like Oh. You can't do anything to control the autonomic nervous system and we are teaching you how to do that and we're proving all the textbooks wrong. Wim. Hof says that kind of thing. A Lot I changed the textbook. There's a new chapter about me. You pull out a sex. Work is just like his pencil writing all over cross. Changed it you're like a sharpie. -actly, so yes, so then we break down that autonomic nervous system further, so there's like this branching. It's almost like a nerve structure of nerve systems that we're talking about so three of life. Now that we're focused on the ODENAL, make nerve system the things that were supposedly not having control over. You've got your sympathetic. Oh that's. Outside case. The Para sympathetic Oh. Yeah that's like sympathetic to paranormal things. Just like partly. Next sympathetic. That's inside the cave. So what is this cave? He's talking about Plato's cave. Just thinking that it's a new allegory of the cave so I think the idea is back when our ancestors were living in more quote, unquote, primitive environments like caves, these two systems developed to keep us alive, one of which is kind of your body in its rest mode. So when you're inside the cave, you want smaller people. See can see in the dark. Dark you want your saliva to flow well, so you can digest your food. You're ready for the sexy times slower heart rates lower breathing. Used Your glucose slowly. Because maybe you're going to be in there for a little bit this winter activate your reproductive system like you just said so you can bone whereas the sympathetic nervous system. That's when you're outside the Caveman and there's dangerous out here. You've got to be ready for dinosaurs fighter flight new. I saw EEK the cat and terrible thunder lizards, and yet caveman definitely met dinosaurs. No, they did not so. Yeah, that's where you're ready to hunter. Be Hunted, and you need to have all the glucose ready in your muscles so that if someone suddenly springs that you can run the other way, right, you're all your energies ready to go and and your sex response. That's just not there you're not thinking about. God right executive that would be a a even use that as an example like if the bear starts chasing you and you're getting aroused. Something's wrong. People gotta get. Bear going to have a special moment. And then your saliva gets inhibited in this case where anxiety would theoretically come from city to be on the sort of like constant alert. Faster, so which of these are we going to learn to control? Both? Yes, yeah, we're going to at least be able to kind of go between them and move toward one when we need to, but I think the idea is that this wim Hof puts you in these extreme situations where your sympathetic nervous system wants to take over and say okay, you're going to breathe fast. Your eyes are going to eight, and we want to introduce with breathing, and these other controls the ability to pull us back towards the Paris empathetic and I'll say this although I don't know if that's true at all. It makes sort of intuitive sense to me because in our modern world where you're mostly safe. That's where we develop these things like chronic anxiety. Because you're sort of want to be on, alert has no place to go right right. So it makes sense to me like that. If you actually gave yourself something like okay here, you go for two minutes. This is what you worry about. Put it there this whole. Turn it off. Yeah, and I think that's kind of the siren. Call of the Wim Hof method and Scott Carney very muchly off in his book, saying this like Oh well, I was just this reporter in Los Angeles live in my apartment and you know you're sitting in front of the computer all day and getting a little soft around the middle okay. So. He was saying you know like. We evolved in this kind of environment where we were constantly being forced to endure extreme conditions, and now we have our air conditioning, and we keep everything within this nice cozy goldilocks zone. He's thinks it's sixty eight to seventy two I was like okay. That's a little specific. Everything exactly at sixty eight to seventy two, but we do avoid extreme temperature. Yeah, I fucking hate. Them I'd rather drink muddy, so the argument is, is that the body kind of needs occasionally to have these beneficial shocks to the system, and it kind of just keeps us in sort of a more healthy range of flexibility. Right sounds possible. Missing does well to me. That's all I need to know seems possible, so stop spending all your time inside the cave. Yeah Up. There I was just thinking every time he would talk about outside the cave. The sympathetic nervous system I would just think of my cat because I feel like even though she is inside of our cave almost all the time. That response is always there. There's always this heightened like threat alert. Like what are you doing? Why did you just move? Getting some something I should do to respond. Are you trying to kill me now? Yes, I've been waiting seven years. Feeding you every day, because eventually I was going to kill you and shoot Iran to me. Also you're seeing her. You're interpreting her behaviors. That way went, and maybe that's not what it's like inside. That's true I. Don't know how to get into that black box, but at least if we were to compare her reactions to human reaction, right, she's very much ruled by the sympathetic nervous system. So did you know that? That there are three Nobel prize winners from last year. Who are studying optimizing stress? Yeah had to look this one up. I'm glad you dig..

"Five one hundred dollars, a month or more. You know it's whatever works for you. Dave and thank you dave. We appreciate it. Thank you so much Dave you're the best. And everyone else, so we'll be back stock about that more, but let's jump into our workshop. If you didn't hear last episode, you are going to want to go back one. Yeah, you'll be like. What is this Wim Hof? Method? Who or what is Wim Hof I'm so confused. What is this fundamentals workshop? You'll have no idea so definitely. Hear that contextual information and also welcome. Glad to have you here on the show episode. One was sort of an icebreaker. Oh. Nicely done isolate. sixty-nine. Sexual. That's funny, so yeah, we got there. We got our waiver signed. We got our yoga mat set up on the ground. The crowd kept growing over time, but I think it stabilized at around three participants. Yeah, we definitely filled up pretty much all the negative space in that room, but I'm comfortable fell. Yeah, that's true. We were close to each other, but enough room to breathe. A I get it so yeah. Somebody writes in later, says there, and there were twenty four participants, Ross and carrier full of Shit just notes, plus minus or they're a liar anyway. The first thing we would do is get some very energetic and sincere information from Michael. Christopher Oh go Christoph, awro, yeah, handsome man! Looks like Jason soukous a tall sharp features long hair that he's kind of tied up behind him with a very substantial beard. He's got kinda sharp beard and mostly black curly hair, but with a little bit of the grey bit of salt in that pepper, so he started telling us about disease. Yeah, we kicked off around twelve fifteen. That was game time. He said he'd had a slide projector. That was very hard to see because a room wasn't dark. Right, so we kinda struggled. Struggled to see from our vantage, point was right onto the wall to yeah exactly so he wasn't a distinct image. And at least there was a post in my way so I'm constantly kind of trying to go around and say what does that say sheer using the zoom feature on my phone? We were sitting not next to each other, which is rare. And I was sitting at just the right angle. Where right above your head said Ross fit. A really cool mural on the wall. We took pictures of me in the raw it afterward. Yeah, so straight up. Let's talk about disease. We've all dealt with. It was all had disease affect our lives? Like which percentage of disease would you say? As chronic inflammation involves inflammation, I would say eighty eighty percent involves inflammation very precise by that I. do mean physical, mental and spiritual. Yes, he grew over time I think the first time Michael said eighty percent of disease is inflammation. That was the statement and. And then later on it became eighty percent of chronic disease, and then later on it became eighty percent of disease, mental and physical, and then spiritual got worked into this somehow so eighty percent spiritual disease, and sometimes he'd use. The word involves, which is very different, other than just the word is that van diagrams a little more of a closer overlap when you say. This disease is influenced, makes it sound like the inflammations causing the disease which could be the case to involve where it's just a component right? Because I mean. Presumably, we got inflammation. We evolved exit was useful in some way. Yeah, so, is this the cause or is this the treatment? I don't know speaking of which we're going to be mentioning a lot of claims and some kind of directly address, but just put it out there, we'll. We'll have more time after we tell the main story of this workshop to SORTA. unpack some of these ideas. Don't take this all at face value just not along for a little bit. So what's cool about the Wim Hof breathing method is that you're going to get more oxygen throughout your cells sounds good, cool speaking of inflammation causing disease. I sent this to my sister, Jeanette, who is a doctor in Fresno General Practitioner and asked. What. Do you think of this eighty percent of diseases inflammation and I'd ever kind of the permutations and ask for her reaction, and she said this is very Dr -ly but I think that in some contexts one might be able to contrive away to explain disease by inflammation and psychological mindsets, especially in the way that anxiety and depression can affect our health including levels of stress hormones, cortisol our. Our Immune response in our ability to make good decisions, affecting our chronic conditions, but I would not say there is a strong body of evidence pointing to a particular percentage, actually in my usual setting a primary care I would guess that over ninety percent of the ailments of life are connected to our mental health in some way, because we are integrated whole people and gave the example of the. The diabetic feels hopeless chooses not to take their insulin, and is now facing an amputation or heart, attack or blindness or the young person who was anxious to fit in started smoking. She was giving him. Sort of you know. Here's a stir up trying to get into this sort of mental health being connected to your overall health, but what to do with inflammation I. Think she she the inflammation. Inflammation thing saying that there's no particular percentage that sounds like it came out of nowhere, but then I think because he'd included the phrase eighty percent of disease both mental and physical. She was trying to say okay well. Here's here's how we could kind of connect to that idea of mental health, being town are bodily health. Wow, okay, who very kind fair to pull him out of the is. Exactly so I WANNA go around quoting eighty percent figure. Did you know that you only use ten percent of your brain? That is yeah..
Emotions and Fear Show Us What We Are Truly Capable Of
"My guest today is somebody. Some of you might follow regularly Aubrey Marcus. He's a modern day philosopher. He's the author of the bestseller own the day in an entrepreneur of the wellness company on it. You might think of Aubrey as a bio hacker whose general approach is total human optimization. But we catch up with him. Discover what optimization looks like during a pandemic. And what we learn is practices and perspectives to simply accept what's happening day by day. Welcome Aubrey. How are you? Doing well, thank you good to talk to you wonderful to talk to you, I think last we saw each other was many years ago. Either on a mountain top or a boat. It was at the mountain. Actually yeah, that was the first time and I remember. That was the first time I tried to music. which is great, but I think the recent improvements to the s have been really welcomed. I love everything that you guys have done with that I think you so much. It's super appreciated. So. Let's dive into your work and what you've been working on recently, but somebody who spend their life thinking about how to optimize every day and make the most from every day. How do you think about making the most from a day? That's during pandemic or a riot? Well, it's interesting. I think you have to be aware. I mean awareness is really the key, and I think you have to be aware of any pressure that's coming from the collective and a lot of times. We think of ourselves as isolated, but we're really not were interconnected beings, and we really feel what's. What's going on so I think it's just having awareness that we're going to be sensitive to everything that's happening and that sensitivity might cause us to actually wall off even more and become less sensitive, just because it's a bit overwhelming, and all of this is fine. There's no judgment any action, or we might really engage with it and just feel it all or some combination of both and I've certainly experienced all of that. We at some points I just WanNa turn everything off and just unplug from everything that's happening at large and then other times. I WanNa Watch, everything and. And talk to everybody and get out there in the mix and see what's happening out there in the world, and really feel it, but other than that. I think it's really for me. I'm writing my new book, so that's kind of forced isolation. anyways, you can't really do a lot when you're dedicated to writing under a deadline, so it hasn't been too different lifestyle for me. Other than just managing what's happening in the collective is you support other people to manage? What's going on right now? I think this is a time to really lean into the personal practices, so whatever those. Those things are that are the best for you. I have a host of them. I'm sure a lot of the listeners do as well the muse being one of them, but there's so many other words like breath work for example at spent a good amount of time with Wim Hof and the combination of the breath in the cold is a great way to shift state. GET CLARITY, move emotions so I. think that's been really valuable. I'm a big proponent of ecstatic dance, and for those of you who don't understand what ecstatic dance is. It's not dancing on ecstasy. It's actually. Moving your body in direct superfluity with the music, so that it's collapsing the mind and creating this kind of trance state where you're just moving without thought without self judgment, and that will actually put you into that translates really ancient practice at a lot of different traditional have engaged in are these ceremonial dances, and really you can do it by yourself for there's ecstatic dances that are hosted around the country to participate in dance I would. Would go to something in Toronto called the move. Where Hopley one hundred people would get together and dance for about a two hour period over this amazing arc of music, so it start off slow, and it would come to this ecstatic he crescendo, and then soothe you back down again. It was incredible to just let everything go and just dance, and just be yourself in the moment. There's no gentleman from anybody. Everybody's doing their own thing. And with the pandemic, obviously, that became very impossible. You don't want one hundred people in a crowded studio and so now been dancing with my four year old. Exactly! Living Room. Let's put it on no judgment. Go Wild have fun. He gets on. The trampoline goes crazy and we just do it. That's the beauty of being a kid. Is You just move and express freely without really worrying about what you look like? I think dancing is one of those things that we have so much judgment attached to how we move. It's like a performance even when we're dancing by herself. So really kind of just getting rid of that whole construct, and allowing yourself to move again, so much of our motion and everything is really stored semantically in the body as a great book called. Called the body keeps the score really makes that case brilliantly, but it's allowing yourself to move and shake just like a dog runs into the screen doors. Something like the first thing they do, is they? Shake it off well. We don't really shake it off very well. We have a lot of things that disturb in trouble our mind, but were not really moving it through our body. An effective way so dancing is absolutely one of my favorite ways to do that. Dancing and breathing. I mean those are really absolutely my go-to Stephanie

That always really frustrates me because we all hear the voice in the room, much louder than the voice on the page, and so it's really that's there to protect them not to protect me and I think that's a real problem of just legalese in general that it certainly puts anyone a stupor.

"About him in a bit, so the description is. The expert hands of a certified Wim Hof method instructor to learn the three pillars of the Wim Hof method, breathing, technique, cold, exposure and commitment. To find out how you can utilize oxygen and cold exposure to optimize body and mind and learn about the underlying physiology, these workshops are limited to twenty. Five participants rustled up five fingers to the second power area. And instructors often choose to keep them much smaller. Yes I was like nervous like site. Just this is happening in a couple of weeks, and I just found out. I could do it. Thankfully, there were still spots available, because as far as del up. The intimate quality allows for ample personal attention and feedback tailored to your specific situation whether you're looking to improve mental or physical performance relief symptoms related to an illness or just curious to find out what the Wim Hof method is all about a whm. Workshop offers something for everyone. The program generally kicks off with an introduction to the Wim Hof method always includes a breathing session an optional ice bath. See it was even option. They weren't going to like. Throw you in, but I also wasn't going to pay for all that and then me like all right. In the is. Enjoyed the breathing. Later take one hundred dollars by. At the end there is ample room for reflection and the instructor is there to answer questions throughout the workshop. Instructors have their own specializations, and there is some variation across the individual workshops. A detailed overview of the day is sent out upon registration. If you have no prior experience with cold exposure, we recommend you. Finish your showers cold. In the days. Leading up to the workshop I did that I forgot to do that. Okay Very I. I was really batting a thousand when I showed up his shop, but we'll get there all right This may be overwhelming.

"Text a friend shared on social media and feel free to follow some of the men that you'll hear in here as well you can go to the show notes to learn more about the men who were on this trip you can follow a social media. Posted a bunch of stuff recently about at all and you can see some of that. They're also on instagram. And all those places so very very excited about this and now let's dive into this episode on the Wim Hof Experience in Poland so to give some context for the audio. We're here with a group of thirteen. Fourteen men were in a room in Poland. Were sitting with Wim Hof who just let us through through a breathing exercise. If that's what you want to call it more of a spiritual experience and we've just finished and we wanted to share our experience what it opened up for us and before we do. Can you share in a couple of minutes Context of what we actually did what. It's the purpose this of it. Why you do it and how it helps? People heal themselves breath. We have shown INSCI- as the first ones to reach into the autonomic nervous system inaccessible by humans and now we are so we are using breath not only to go into these deeper systems of our grant within our wheel. Full control will we are here to show that the breath actually is the carrier of consciousness and that consciousness we are able to go anyplace anyplace in our bodies in our brain the the seat of the mind and with that get a comprehension. A what is the soul in the moment right here right now. Nothing abstract a feeling feeling is understanding. So I see you you guys here all big guys and influences window so great it is great. I got got a new. Some new insights always keep on learning. I'm very thankful that we have come together to show that we as big man and are able to become very vulnerable. There is the strength to not be a need to stay in control to go past the control into vulnerability because you want to venture into something else than is given us by our schools. Our teachers doctors and so forth. That's why we have come together now would love to hear. What is you experience? Yeah maybe we'll go with Aubrey. I and maybe what we'll do. Is this same proper. Everyone and share what you're grateful for the reason you came here for this experience and the biggest thing that opened up for you during this session or the first two and a half days so gratitude why you decided to come experience with a win and what opened up for you so far in this breathing or this Tom. I mean one of those questions is really easy because this was an easy S. I mean this is Not only did I know a couple of people here already that I consider friends and brothers. But I've got to spend time with Wim Hof himself and Ainum as well all and got to meet his family and have been practicing. The methods is not as much as I will after being here. I think this is one of the big lessons that I've learned. Is I have a lot of the tools I've been on the path learning discovering my soul my spirit like what that essences consciousness your higher self. Whatever you WANNA call it? There's a million words that inadequately described the ineffable essence of who we really are and I've been on the path of seeking that but I don't don't always remember that I forget it often and I forget it easily and to be reminded that it's just a sequence of breaths away and to be able to do that in an environment with people that are becoming brothers. Some came in his brother's like yourself and now everybody the becoming brothers. It's I'm happy I'm happy and I don't know if I'm always happy it'd be honest you know and like this now now is showing me. That happiness is not something that's ephemeral. That's not something that you know comes to you or it doesn't come to you based on some external thing like you can create it and you created the container by bringing all these people together and then we're creating the internal state with our own breath and it just. This gives control back to something that I think society in the world has take his all his out of our control. We get control back by using the method than And it's just the best you know and then you look at the priorities of your life and you're like what am I doing everything I'm doing for when everything I'm doing. He's not yielding this kind of happiness that I've had here with this group this method in a couple of days and and it's just a great reminder about like what's really important in in which way to steer life from here for it so I'm just incredibly grateful grateful for life life and grateful for our bodies and grateful for teachers like women that can help us get back and remind ourselves who we really are and how to get back in touch with the animal and the spirit inside all Nice Nice Steve. I'm super thankful for for tried in my entire life and athlete and then when you retire it's not built-in for you so to just to become here to try up with breath to drive up with a lot of people That I haven't met before are really only needed to know like one guy was coming and that was you lois. But it's cool to see what you've created breath in this drive and we'll never have another experience like this so for me. That actionable steps. I'll take with this. Experience is is for me to be better keeping the main thing made because I think a lot of us with big dreams and the big desires of our heart we go so deep an obsessive towards that and as husbands fathers do when I get home and I put my my truck in park I walk in the door. I'm bringing that stuff with me I don't want to and I don't WanNA show up that way but that's the world we live in and we're trying to get things done we're trying to create legacy eh and that does that does required obsession but Super Thankful Win.
