Existential Deaths In The Ice
Your identity is something you can play around with to create a transformational process that’s the most powerful thing you can do from a cognitive perspective loosely. Many people identify with symptoms or diseases they experience or disease to the point that getting rid of that disease becomes very difficult because you actually have to shift your identity around it.
Today’s guest calls this process the “Existential Death”, and he witnesses it in people who expose themselves to the ice and allow it to work its magic on their psychological and physical states.
This episode will go places you don’t expect it to and open your eyes to the wider world that’s formed around the “ice bath” and “cold exposure” worlds as they’ve become more common and accepted.
