  1. No its not necessary to sit in the cold shirtless. but thats beside the point. cold immersion is a way awaken dormant capabilities.

  2. This was exactly what I was looking for and I didn't even know it. Fantastic video I look forward to binge watching your channel shortly after I compose this message to tell you how much I liked it. Excellent job Sir.

  3. I do have trauma induced toxic hidden memories. I have made enormous progress in 3 days of doing breathing. I am a retiree and this has affected me. all my life. My strategies for healing over the years have produced strong reactions of dumping internal toxins and this is no exception. I think, if you are older or chronically ill, expect more tiredness, exhaustion, etc. I love this, even though it is hard work at first. I can tell it will get easier.

  4. In through the nose out of the mouth…in nose out nose…in mouth out nose…in through the mouth out of the mouth? Could you elaborate more please?

  5. I've seen a video about Shamanic breathwork by Stanislav Grof (I really belive it release DMT) and I only tried WHM, but now I want to thank you, definitely going to try it now!

  6. Can anyone tell me, why i can't hold my breathe over 2 minutes? Since i should be able to hold it longer and longer.Like something uncomfortable appears in my throat exactly around that time.(Hopefully people get what im talking about)

  7. Excellent video! I was just wondering what the difference was between the two breathing methods. In addition, the comment you made about trying a martial art was on point. This is the exact reason why I will be getting into it soon.

  8. i love this video , its beautifully done . I LOVE the wim hof method and find it extremely effective yet gentle . Iv done re birthing breathing in the past, and its the same as the shamanic breathing and its effects . I feel to say though that i would only feel safe doing this deeper longer level of breath work with someone holding the space and also being generally mindful of creating a safe feeling environment to do this in . It can be very powerful both physically and emotionally . When i first did re birthing 20 years ago i was flooded with traumatic memories/images . I was glad to have a hand to hold through that process . I also feel cold water immersion is extremely beneficial to health and is much more than a confidence building exercise ,( all the winter sea swimmers i know never get poorly ! ) .

  9. I don't mean to offend anyone, but isen't "Shamaniac Breathing" simply self inflicted hyperventilation? And if so, isen't it also dangerous where it can cause the user to pass out?

  10. Why is so dificult keep on in the Shamanic breathwork? In the past 3 weeks, I do for like 2 minutes and I feel almost forced to stop. Any tip or advice for me? I enjoyed the video a lot!

  11. The shamanic breathing is Rebirthing really , enjoyed your video would have love to feel a bit less rushed with your talk , and also wonder why you think the shamanic is more powerful , did you practice them both for a while to really compare please ?

  12. I am guessing that if you cannot do more than a few minutes to start, this is ok- Dizziness etc is sure to kick in( my thoughts anyhow)

  13. Love the info shared in the video ! The link with healthy recipes,is contradicting the love one feels for everyone & everything with these techniques which are proven to take one into a higher state of consciousness.

  14. Would it be safe to do this alone either on the floor or in one's own bed . I am 74 years of age in good health and able to do Wm Hof method holding my breath for 3 1/2 minutes . I have been doing this on a regular basis for four months .
    Thank you kindly, Dan

  15. well.-.. this is quite unique!!:. its IS really like a psychedellic come up.. i almost die.. my hands got SO supercharged.. its like 2 magnets generating super super energy… i HAD to go outside in the winter due to enormous amount of heat generated..with a t shirt only.. i thought i was gonna pass out any moment.. but then.. i started to feel some sort of super well being and a deeep deeep relaxation.. i have anxiety issues.. bruxism…i hold it inside me and cant let it out.. this did the trick.. i got so happy after.. but warning… this is going to change you.. be ready.. change.. is change.. we fear change.. but it is always for the better!!..

  16. So I did it today for the first time, and I have to say it was pretty intense. During the breathing and especially on the pause after breathing out I felt calm and in a meditative state.

    After the third round, when I got back to normal breathing, I noticed that the tinnitus in my ears was way louder than normal and I noticed that I could hear less than normal. In combination with feeling a bit odd/high (because I just finished the breathing) this brought me a mild panic attack. Fortunately, the tinnitus lowered again and I guess this was just a temporary increase due to the exercise. Anyone else experienced this?

  17. Thank You for this sharing.
    On Big Question i ask my self since a long time:
    What is the energetic impact of holding the Breath on the inhale and on the exhale,
    im doing kundalini yoga and all sort of breathing technics but still searching for a good explanation of this two Kumbakha and Bandha Technics . . .?

  18. Thanks for sharing that video! I just thought about all the healing methods we have that are free and it's actually amazing that most people would rather do surgery than trying a cold shower, urine therapy, or dance and sing in a group.

    Much Love,

  19. I can already hold the horse stance for an hour does it mean I'll be able to hold it longer than that if I hold my breath ?

  20. Really nice video. I can‘t wait to try the shamanic breathing. Only thing to disagree on was the horse stance in the retention of the whm breathing, especially after more than one round. The breathing stimulus is in a high CO2 environment so the danger of passing out is very possible. So you don‘t want to be standing; gravity can be cruel.
    Otherwise overall great video, sir! 🙂

  21. Ok, so for me only doing the first tech. I got a bus around 20-27 breaths, went with it and experienced real wonderful feelings, vibes. Breathing feels better after one set.

  22. You are weird , Wim Hof for me is good because there is no BS about Chi, lights, and other things that bullshido artist use to scam people. Shakra light, past lives.Dude that's not real, lay off drugs.

  23. I used to do this shamanic breathing as a kid!! But we would strangle each other at the end of 15mins to go into visions instead of holding breath

  24. can u please let me know if u truly recommend the shamanic breathing to almost anyone and for bigginers? U say even if u feel like u are dieing just breath through it but i got barley over 5 mins before i literally felt my heart was going to burst.

  25. this shamanic breathing technique is quite similar to "holotropic breathwork," as articulated by Stanislav Graf, MD decades ago. HB is utilized as a mental health therapy. James Eyerman, MD, published a paper describing the use of this technique over several years on no less than 11,000 patients in a St. Louis mental hospital. He reported no adverse medical events. And the patients themselves voted it the single-most effective therapy they had received while there.

    I went to a breathing event without knowing what I was getting into. I thought it was about stretching and maybe some yoga poses. (My son had tried it, so I figured I would, too.) Wow! All good! Had a total re-birthing experience; felt beyond time and space; felt free from any perception of physical and mental tension. Am 30-year vipassana meditator (off and on), and noticed some overlap, but I view this "shamanic breathing" as a new-to-me key tool in the self-development toolbox!

    Thanks for this great youtube video- best out there on this topic!

  26. I tried shamanic breathing a few times in the last couple days. This shit is Intense! If anyone is interested, I made a video about my experience. It's on my channel now.

  27. PLS is there any risks conected with hypervantilation in shamanic breathing? I red many warning documents. Can you talk about this problem. Many thx for this video, it is great 🙂

  28. and moving the chi in your am so impressed..these breathing things..what hehe amazing..not sure if i'm gonna do that..but any new meditation techniques are very cool..

  29. Amazing video!!! At 41, doing Yoga for 2, but only know really understanding the importance of breathing 🙂 Can one do this after eating a good and satisfying meal? 🙂

  30. is it safe to do that kind of breathing on your own? What if some stuff comes up that you are not able to deal with on your own?

  31. what do you think about osho dynamic meditation? it also includes very rapid breathing 3 to four times for 15 minutes but combined with strong and creative movements of a body, or a dance better to say

  32. I would like to ask something, maybe you can explain. I used Wim Hof breathing for some time. but this time I breathed in and out about 30 times (little bit faster), inhaled deeply, hold my breath and squeezed air a little (we were playing with that when we were kids to induce little dizziness). but this time I almost immediately lost normal consciousness, my body started to twitch and I had some short insight in some kind of vision, maybe past trauma. after that I was a little shaky. I think it lasted for only about 10 seconds or even less, but it left deep impression on me and my body.

    I tried that twice, and effect was the same, maybe even stronger. what do you think, is it recommended to do this exercise?

  33. READ THIS ITS FUCKING INTERESTING so I start doing this but in a different way so basically I bent over forward so I was on my feet but my head was upside down hands on knees and I start blowing like FUCKING HARD HARD anyway I get really light headed, close my mouth and blow as hard a possible with loads of pressure and I literally past out on my sofa and you may think I just fell asleep no I was awake experiencing something weird and all I can remember is like purple and a bunch of shapes but thing this is while I'm awake with my eyes open looking at something I came back and suddenly realise I was asleep LIKE SERIOUSLY I CANNOT EXPLAIN BUT I SWEAR THATS WHAT LIKE EGO DEATH IS also my friend was there and he said I wasn't responding for about a second or 2 but it felt like a minute at least so I try it again and the exact same thing happens like I had the exact same experience, Honestly this took me to a further level then acid or MDMA did

  34. I'll tell u how the proper way If u want to experience something more trippy them acid so lean over with your hands on your knees and head facing down if ya get what I mean like you were throwing up but properly put your head down, start breathing really heavy like to the point where your almost falling over then proceed take a really deep breath in stick your finger in your mouth so no air can get out and Litterally blow as hard as possible and what happens is fucked up when I done it this way I like passed out But at the same time I was awake all I can remeber is a bunch of purple and loads of shaped I've never seem before but there was so much more stuff then that,if this don't work.then it's Becuase your not getting to the point where you tried so hard you've passed out and I know it sounds dangerous but I've done it like 20 to 30 times and no problems I just feel a bit addicted no joke xD

  35. @What a beautiful demonstration with very clear instructions, thank you for sharing.
    This is my first try ever (just one round) breating and exhaling through the nose. I couldn't continue as it cause a very sharp and intentense headache in my frontal lob also again intense pain in my right kidney. Why is that? What am i doing wrong? Should I continoue anyway?

  36. Just did this for the first time…i really like it..thabk u so much for doing the wim hof for over a week and am.very much in tune with my brrathing being a singer so i feel very strong benifits all over..thabknu

  37. Kid:daddy what's that man doing on the beach?
    Dad:*kneels to one knee* that's called meth.
    Kid:oooooo he looks like he's having fun can I try
    Dad:BOI IF YOU EVER TOUCH THAT SHI…… STUFF…… your Xbox is mine😎

  38. Thank you for a great Video. I have found that I absolutely cannot hold my breath at all with the WHM. It feels like I’m suffocating. However if I inhale before holding I am able to hold my breath very easily. Why?

  39. It's such a pity that you'll die whilst you're very healthy. We're all going to die. Doesn't matter what you do.
    You claim lots of things like decalcification of the pineal gland.
    Can you proof it gets calcified in first place?
    I question everything I hear.

  40. After you've been breathing in this unnatural way, you're certainly very glad to be alive and you feel a 100% better when you stop this breathing.

  41. I have been doing the Wim Hof breathing for a few months now (along with occasional cold showers, which i would really like to do everyday)..and i find it refreshes me every single time i do it….

    Shamanic breathing is something I am going to try now.. however, even before trying i can already imagine what it's going to feel like based my wim Hof breathing experience.

    Thank you very much for sharing this.

  42. honestly this is what i do to force my self into lucid dreaming but i didn't keep on doing it. i just tried maybe once or twice and when i concluded "well, it works" then i completely forgot about it thinking. "what am i gonna use it for anyway. i mean i can fuck any girl i see when i lucid dream. but aside of that what's the point?" so i stopped and completely forgot about this method.

  43. So I tried the Wim Hof method for the first time just now and about a minute into the first set I had constant, quite intense fuzzing sensation on both of my hands, cheeks and around my body. I also have mild asthma which only flares up when I do exercise which causes me to breath heavily and I could hear myself wheezing a bit during the 2 min phases. So is this one of those 'not for everybody' type deals or things that will improve with continued practice of these techniques?

  44. Your version of wim hof is interestingly different than wim hof's version so it's not actually what he teaches. Still useful but different.

  45. I suffered from panic attacks and my heart beat is rapid everyday, since December 2018.

    I tried Wim Hof method and my heart absolutely RACES and it scares me and ruins the experience.

    It’s a shame. 😩

  46. I did the breathing techniques laying down in my living room, with music meant for this playing, and I felt the whole body vibration. Took a break, grabbed a water, and went back at it. This time with a rolled up shirt over my eyes, and louder music. After awhile I was vibrating so much I had to sit up, take the blind off and turn off the music. I couldn't control my hands as they were tensed up, difficult to walk at first. My body was vibrating at an extreme rate and I walked outside down to the lake to a wonderful scene and a better outlook. I felt the electrical currents inside of me. Eventually took control back over myself. There's more out there. My hands are still shaking. Powerful stuff.

  47. Hey everyone, I got a quick question, if you know a bit about breathing and can invest the 2-3 minutes to leave a comment, I would greatly appreciate it 🙂 When I`m inhaling deeply, I´m noticing my chest muscles are under a lot of tension. i guess those are some of the muscles that are not supposed to be involved in the breathing? How much chest is normal/okay? And should you even feel tension in the upper body? Thx

  48. Thank you sooooo much for breaking this down into such an accessible format. Very well organized and explained. Especially appreciate the written description.

  49. The wim hoff method Is a yogic breathing called bastrika …..hatha yoga has five to seven breathing techniques collectively called pranayama which yogis do to balance their internal energy systems. Do ur research very beneficial to health and mind.
