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.
