Wim Hof Film Gala Dinner Fundraiser (Amsterdam)

I decided to post here, because I believe it's a project that needs way more attention and awareness!

Wim Hof caught the attention of scientists when he proved he was able to stay submerged in ice for 1 hour and 53 minutes without his core body temperature changing. He has climbed Mount Kilimanjaro wearing only shorts, resisted altitude sickness, completed a marathon in the Namib Desert with no water, and to astonishment of the researchers, proven under laboratory conditions that he’s able to influence his autonomic nervous system and immune system at will. Both the autonomic nervous system and innate immune system have until now been regarded as systems that cannot be voluntarily influenced. The present study demonstrates that, through practising techniques learned in a short-term training program, the sympathetic nervous system and immune system can indeed be voluntarily influenced. Below the published papers.

The Gala Dinner will be a unique cultural event, featuring a 7 course dinner, a variety of live musical entertainment, an art auction and an ICE BUCKET challenge guided by Wim Hof. Guests will also have the opportunity to meet and greet the ICE MAN - Wim Hof and film director Manely Vives Batista in person.

We have famous guests attending including the Maori Chief from Aotearoa/New Zealand and guests from Hawaii and other countries as well many Dutch celebrities.
There is limited seating available. Please be sure to book early to assure your participation.
