NORTHERN LIGHTS WIM HOF RETREAT
WELCOME TO THE NORTH OF NORWAY, THE MAGICAL LOFOTEN
In our newly renovated retreat center Lysvoll located by the national mountain of Norway named Stetind, we will dive deep into the Wim Hof Method.
Imagine you are sitting inside our cozy and warm living room looking outside the panorama windows. The fire is crackling in the background. You see the ocean fjord and the mountains surrounding you.
You feel at peace, balanced and most of all: alive!
The adventures you had during the day fill you with joy and a sense of achievement. Now a delicious dinner is about to be served and your new found friends call for you to join them at the table. Just as you want to get up you see a shimmer of green in the sky!
Aurora Borealis, also named Northern Lights, are shining upon on you.
This might be a possible moment on a beautiful evening in Lysvoll.
For six days we will engage into the three pillars of the WHM:
Cold therapy (gradual cold exposure)
Breathing (powerful breathing techniques and meditation)
Commitment (focus, persistence and willpower)
The Wim Hof Method is a highly effective set of techniques with many beneficial health effects.
The group experience and the chance to practice this intensive course over several days can often bring you a real personal transformation that extends to many areas of your life.
Often deep friendships evolve with others and oneself. Not forgetting a new found friendship with the cold which grants a big amount of freedom once established.
Other known health benefits and improvements are:
Improved immune-, nervous- and cardiovascular system
Increased energy and increased ability to concentrate
Transformation of habituated behaviors and limitations
Expansion of our comfort zone
Greater cold tolerance
The simple yet powerful WHM will be the center and backbone of our retreat and the scientific background of the method will be explained in short presentations.
Complimentary to the WHM we will use different ‘tools’ to bring balance to our body and mind:
Embodiment exercises (using movement to connect with our body and emotions)
Gratitude, intentions and mindfulness (change of perception)
Communication (true listening and intentive talking)
Nutrition (food is medicine or poison)
Walks and baths in nature (reconnecting to our natural habitat)
Fire ceremony and sweat lodge (cleansing and community)
Music and dance (stimulation of various impulses)
The additional program is meant to deepen our connection with ourselves and others and will be tailored towards our participants needs.
