Mindlift Workshop with Kasper Van Der Meulen

Vancouver Real is excited to bring you Kasper Van Der Meulen, head teacher of the Wim Hof Academy and master of the mind

“The mind is a tool that can be developed through training, just like any muscle in the body”

~ Kasper van der Meulen

We live in an amazing era of high-speed information, hyper-connection and endless opportunity, but it also faces us with the challenges of mass-distraction, negative stress and analysis paralysis. The good news is that this amazing new world also offers us the opportunity – like never before – to take responsibility into our own hands, to control our lifestyle factors, and to train our minds to be healthy and happy and free to choose the life we want.
