In this retreat we will use the Wim Hof Method and more techniques to go deeper in Meditation.


We will stay in a Zen temple and get our Zazen teachings. We will use breathing techniques and cold training to go deeper in meditation. And we will add some Zen from Amsterdam, my own meditation techniques. We will hike up to mount Fuji in the last days of the retreat and use our state of mind and acquired strength to conquer the mountain inside us.


If you have not been to Japan yet, this will be a chance to see the beauty of Japan, connect with mount Fuji and learn and experience meditation from a collaboration of Japanese Zazen, Wim Hof Method and Zen from Amsterdam.


About Tim van der Vliet

My name is Tim van der Vliet. I am a Wim Hof Method and Meditation teacher, author, I run my own investment fund (this grounds me) and I am  father of 5 children. I have travelled more than 15 times to Japan, 4 of my children and the mama are Japanese. I have learned so much from the connection that I have with Japan that I am super excited to share this knowledge. Apart from a healthy lifestyle I have learned how breathing properly helps me feel calmer, be healthier and cope with stress better. Through my techniques I can get in a very deep state of meditation. Even deeper than 10 years ago when I was already a meditation teacher.

10 years ago I wrote a book called Spiritual Awakening (the easy way) which was published by Hay House UK. From that moment I became a mindset, spiritual and mindset teacher. I am now writing a new book called: Cracking the Code through the Power of Paradox. Both books you will get in this amazing transformative experience. I have been trained personally by the world-famous Wim Hof (aka ‘The Iceman’) whose techniques for mastering the mind-body connection are being studied by scientific institutions around the world. 

The meditations I have developed focus not only on the normal 7 chakras but also on “out of body” chakra’s. For example the centre of the Earth and the centre of the Sun.

Other than that I use mantras that have never been shared before.

Through the use of breathing techniques we will get to a deep meditative state, which will make meditation effortlessly in the rest of your life.
