Mari Fong interviews David Shaw of The Revivalists and solo artist, and Farid Hashemi, Wim Hof Certified Instructor. David Shaw shares his story of growing up with fears, insecurities and “not feeling good enough” which led to anxiety and drug and alcohol addiction. One long night of drinking led to a fateful night that shocked and scared the hell out of David, making him decide on getting clean and sober. Hear David’s solutions for recovery which include the Wim Hof Method, what he calls “anxiety training.” We play a clip of “Shaken” from David Shaw’s new, self-titled, debut album dropped in May 2021. 

Next, we have expert and certified Wim Hof instructor Farid Hashemi of E-motion Training who shares the secrets behind this unique method. Wim Hof developed these techniques after losing his wife to suicide which helped him recover both mentally and physically. Farid shares how training with Wim Hof on the snowy mountains of Poland changed his life, and how the “three pillars” of this method can benefit your life as well.
