All We Need is Love
All we need is love. A famous line from arguably the most famous band of all time ‘The Beatles’
Imagine going into every argument, battle, challenge or nervous environment with that as your mantra, your approach to challenge, push back or indeed finding a solution may be very different.
Recently, I turned 40. A milestone in life for some, but for me it was a catalyst for me to reflect and reset. You see, I was finding life a bit tricky and felt that the world was throwing a lot of challenges my way but why?
Strange to feel helpless, when one of the things I love most to do is help people. I don’t always get it right but I continue to try. However, I found I needed a helping hand but I couldn’t really see it. So, I stayed the course, however, a great friend and previous guest Gareth Logan called me out on it… he saw the challenges I was facing and encouraged me to spend a little time on myself. To focus on me, otherwise how can I position myself to help others if I can’t help me. But what should I do?
I have always admired Wim Hof and his story. From the tragedy of losing his wife, to finding a way to heal through breath work and embracing the cold. He was able to reimagine the way our bodies can reboot our immune system and prosper. in my research I found the Cliffs of Moher Retreat which was hosting a Wim Hot Method. Needless to say if I attended this, life everything I go through the process and commit to it fully.
This is where I met breathing sensation and cold expert Níall Ó Mhurchú. Níall has been practicing this for decades and I believe we can all benefit from his learnings and his teachings.
On this episode we talk about the incredible benefits the cold can have when we are exposed to it, his relationship with breathing and how we can learn to let stresses and worries go, through our breath. Níall shares some insight to life living and training with the Shaolin Monks and hiking up mountains in the snow and cold with Wim Hof.
An author of ‘The Blissful Breath‘ and ‘The Power of Cold’ this episode is one not to be missed. We leave you at the end of the episode with a short breathing exercise which you can experience in your quiet time.
