Struggle is a beautiful force of nature, suffering is a creation of the mind.
Dustin Moon is 33 years old and lives in the Santa Cruz Mountains. He has leveraged the teachings of Wim Hof in many ways. From climbing the employment ladder here in the Silicon Valley to the tallest mountain in Africa, to finally setting down the weight loss/gain yoyo. The method has taken him in many dynamic directions and he feels privileged to pass on the knowledge Wim and the InnerFire team have instilled in him. The three pillars of the Wim Hof Method are Breath, Cold Exposure, and Mindset. Each pillar has layers and layers of information, skill, and awareness. Dustin's primary goal is to create a space in which you can connect to the deepest parts of your physiology.
“Breath is the bridge which connects life to consciousness, which unites your body to your thoughts. Whenever your mind becomes scattered, use your breath as the means to take hold of your mind again” - Thich Hanh. Dustin has spent time applying this idea to many of life’s opportunities and is enthusiastic to support you in implementing the tool of breath into your world.
“The cold is an absolute doorway to the soul” - Wim Hof. The cold sensation of an ice bath is without question one of the most extreme stimuli a human can safely encounter. Whilst almost everyone is physically capable, the mind can sometimes benefit from some coaching as well as the support of a group. One on One or with a group of 20 Dustin will make sure you are physically and mentally ready for the challenges the ice presents.
“Man’s [and woman’s] main task in life is to give birth to himself, to become what he potentially is.” Erich Fromm. The 3rd pillar of the Wim Hof method is mindset. The combination of breath work and cold exposure creates a cascade of subtle and significant changes over time, changes that can easily go unnoticed. Dustin will give you what you need to discover these fantastic gifts throughout your WHM practice.
Message from the Instructor:
Hi everyone, if there is anything about the Wim Hof Method I would communicate now it would be the idea that this practice triggers a baseline increase in the human experience. I know this is a broad statement, it is so intentionally. The WHM is so widely applicable to many humans. I’ve used the method to improve many aspects of my own life; I use the breathing to communicate better while experiencing high emotion, I use the memory of cold exposure as a source of courage in moments of doubt or confusion, and I use the mindset to catapult myself towards my goals. I believe so much in this work, I have chosen to take on the responsibility of teaching it. I am confident in my knowledge of the method and my ability to communicate it, I am also eagerly ready to hear your story and connect you with greater happiness, health, and strength.
