Wim Hof yells a lot.
We are supposed to start our Wim Hof Experience at 9:30am.
But Wim can’t hold himself back from a ready audience. And at 9:17am he jumps out on stage. He cheers the crowd, runs around, and yells. The crowd cheers back.
As a public speaker, Wim Hof is incredible.
Not so much because of his perfect cadence or beautifully crafted narratives. In fact, his English is not perfect. And he is prone to losing this train of thought.
Wim Hof is an incredible public speaker because he speaks from his heart. He projects so passionately, and with more energy than most, that you think he just might self-combust one day and turn into a star.
He is just as likely to launch into a scientific diatribe about cholesterol as he is to pick up a guitar and lead the crowd in song.
We did both of those things. And we also sat in an ice bath for two minutes straight, much longer than I thought was possible.
Afterwards, I felt incredible.
These are my notes from the Wim Hof Experience, also called the Wim Hof Method Weekend, that took place in Brooklyn, New York on Sunday, 18 Nov 2018.
