Tummo meditation

Tummo, which literally means ‘inner fire’, is an ancient meditation technique practiced by monks in Tibetan Buddhism. Tummo exists of a combination of breathing and visualization techniques, used to enter a deep state of meditation that is used to increase a person’s ‘inner heat’. This inner heat enables someone to control ones body temperature, for example keeping the body warm in cold conditions.

Everybody has this inner heat, but most people are not aware of it. Some people say Wim Hof is a practitioner of Tummo, but The Wim Hof Method and Tummo are comparable but different techniques. The Wim Hof Method mainly comes from what Wim calls ‘cold hard nature’ and has no religious components. Wim learned to withstand cold, heat and fear by subjecting himself to the bitter conditions of nature. And he can teach you to do the same.

If you learn The Wim Hof Method correctly, it will empower you to do the same. Sign up for our 10-week video course and start your own journey today.

Benefits of Tummo

Practicing Tummo meditation on a daily basis can have various positive effects on your wellbeing. First of all, it helps you to clear your mind, as the monks use it to get rid of sinful thoughts. Other known benefits of Tummo include but are not limited to:

Reducing stress-related health problems such as anxiety, depression, high blood pressure, and cardiac irregularities, improved concentration, higher confidence, and improved physical health.

Iceman Wim Hof and Tummo

Many people know ‘Iceman’ Wim Hof from television and from all the incredible achievements he has accomplished, such as running half a marathon in the snow on bare feet and climbing Mount Everest in shorts. Wim is capable of doing this thanks to the Wim Hof Method he developed throughout the years. This method is based on breathing exercises, focus, and cold therapy. Some of The Wim Hof Method exercises resemble Tummo exercises and they both allow you to control your body to an extent that was previously thought to be impossible. Scientists discovered that practitioners of the Wim Hof Method have a stronger immune response and are capable of voluntarily influencing their autonomic nervous system, similar to Tibetan monks who increase their body temperature with their ‘inner fire’.

After 8 months of daily Hoffing, puffing and cold showers I can claim to be cured of my 5 year burnout. Not having had a single cold or flu, my sore knee is working perfectly again, which was very painful the last 2 years. It is like a miracle, and I’m really grateful that our paths crossed.

I would have paid $10,000 for this, but that would not be enough because this has changed my life. I feel like I have taken Valium yet am supercharged. As a clinical psychologist my days can be very stressful. There is a stillness inside me now, and what I am really amazed by is the peace lasts.

I started the Wim Hof method in October of 2018, and now the holes I had in my brain are gone. My neurosurgeon was so impressed by the scans that he told me I don't have to come back anymore. I take this as proof that this method works to regenerate brain tissue.

The three pillars

Exposure to cold, breathing exercises and meditation form the basis of the Wim Hof Method. By combining these three ‘pillars’ you can take control of your body. Practicing the Wim Hof Method has many benefits that are related to Tummo meditation, such as reducing stress related health problems.

Also, people with different autoimmune diseases experienced a relief of symptoms after practicing Wim’s method. This relief can be explained by the fact that scientists have found that practitioners of The Wim Hof Method have an improved immune response.
