 Freediving is also a lifestyle activity, used as a tool to create the opportunity for the individual to come closer to his/her own spirit.

To begin a journey of oneself. Diving deeper into yourself. Having a calmer mind helps us handle today’s stressful situations. Breathing, relaxation and mental techniques are taught, discussed, and practiced to help every individual student find their potential. With the confidence learnt, students can start finding their questions.


Why 42? 

42 (or forty-two), was the Answer to the Ultimate Question of Life, the Universe and Everything, in the movie Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. This Answer was first calculated by the supercomputer Deep Thought after seven and a half million years of thought. However the civilization wasn’t pleased with the answer 42. The supercomputer then constructed an even larger supercomputer program, named Earth, which was tasked with determining the right question. Therefore 42 is a reference to each and every individual in this computer program called Earth, which is tasked in determining to find the ultimate question for themselves.

The concept of freediving serves many different purpose for everyone. For an example, being underwater helps to put you in an environment of silence.

 "Freediving is about silence, the silence that comes from within" Jacques Mayol

 In our busy and stressful lives, we have neglected our deeper spirit and have spent most of our waking hours accommodating to the needs of society, work and yourself.

 “People will do anything, no matter how absurd, in order to avoid facing their own souls. One does not become enlightened by imagining figures of light, but by making the darkness conscious.” - Carl Jung
