Inspiring People to Leave Their Comfort Zone

Meditation in cold water

A space to realize that spirit of innovation and positive thinking

The Ice Dippers in Berlin is a wonderful, ever growing community of creative, driven, extravagant and somewhat manic pioneers. We distinguish ourselves from others because we keep challenging our boundaries. When others ask us about our weekend on Monday, we proudly tell them that we went ice bathing. And we laugh about ourselves for being so crazy. It feels good not having to do that on your own but to share that outsiderness with others.

Challenge as a driver of personal growth

Ice bathing is not only transformative for your body but primarily for your mind. Stepping out of your comfort zone and staying in touch with nature on a regular basis has powerful effects on your psyche and overall well-being. Our ice dippers claim that after several sessions, they found themselves noticeably more relaxed, enjoyed a more restful sleep and overcame the winter blues with more ease.

We practice the Wim Hof Method: breathing exercise, cold exposure & meditation

We prepare ourselves with a controlled hyperventilation and some physical exercise. After the breathwork, we undress and line up to share a scream together, releasing any of the built-up nervous tension.

We go into the icy water and endure the cold as long as we can. The practice isn't timed nor is a competition. It’s about letting go and surrendering to nature. We just have one rule: Stay quiet for the people who are still in the water. Everyone is trying to push their mental and physical limits. That meditative peacefulness help us focus better.

After the ice bath, we have a tea and chat together while warming up. Everyone is so lit up and enthusiastic that this is an unparalleled group experience.
