Becoming Superhuman

How To Become Superhuman in the Boardroom, Bedroom, or Any Room by Microdosing with Intention and Guidance

Get access to 1-on-1 coaching, our online community, 100+ pages of instruction, expert interviews, and microdosing workbook.

Do You Sabotage Your Best Efforts to Become Present, Happy, and Connected?

Take meditation, for instance:

Is sitting down on a cushion for ten minutes really the hard part?

Or is it pushing through the inner resistance, just so you can actually sit down on the cushion and start meditating?

The reason you continue to sabotage your own efforts is that you have been conditioned to avoid pain, failure, and discomfort.

This made sense for our prehistoric ancestors continually trying to outrun saber-toothed tigers for fear of being eaten. But it doesn’t make sense for you as a human living in today’s Western world.

In fact, productively dealing with this fear and pain is actually much easier than you think.

Consider this…

What If You Could Re-wire Your Entire Self To Reject Mediocrity – And Automatically Choose Transformational Growth Instead?

What separates those who have achieved “Superhuman” status from the rest of the world?

It’s their programming.

High-performers have “re-wired” their programming to stay centered, grounded, and “in the zone” even when facing difficult, fear-inducing circumstances.

This ability to act with insight and creativity in the face of fear and discomfort cultivates unwavering inner confidence.

This inner confidence is what gets high-performers up in the morning when others sleep. It’s what motivates them to keep trying when others give up. It’s what empowers them to achieve the impossible – when others only dream of it.

Whether for performance enhancement, mood improvement, or simply upgrading your overall well-being, our “Becoming Superhuman” program will help you take control of your life once again.

By microdosing responsibly and intentionally, you will develop the ability to face obstacles head-on, fully stepping into your superhuman potential.

Paul Austin, Founder of The Third Wave

As the Founder & CEO of The Third Wave, my mission is to help you “Become Superhuman” through the responsible and intentional use of microdosing psychedelic substances like psilocybin mushrooms and LSD.

When I microdosed with intention and focus, the result was so profound on my life that I wanted to help others understand how this nascent tool could be used for leadership, creativity, and mindfulness. For that reason, we created this online program to ensure you have the expertise to follow a similar path in clearing your own way towards greatness.

After Microdosing With LSD Two Times Per Week – For Seven Months – My Life Completely Transformed

Once I learned how to microdose in an optimal way, the results were remarkable:

#1: Quieting of the monkey mind, making it much easier to cultivate presence

This is referred to as “Mushin” in Zen Buddhism, and literally means “the mind without mind.” It is pure mental clarity, creating an incredible sense of ease in life.

#2: More confidence and energy in my professional pursuits

Because microdosing helped me to cultivate presence throughout the day, I became much more confident and energetic in my professional pursuits.

Usually, I stifled my creative energy because of fear of judgment. With microdosing, it became easy to create, eliminating the resistance and non-stop questioning about whether or not my work was “good enough.”

#3: More connection and play with others, eliminating my social anxiety

Usually, I’d be stuck inside my head when socializing with others. However, when microdosing, my anxiety disappeared, making it super easy to connect with total strangers.

While microdosing definitely helped me to remain present, improve my performance, and eliminate social anxiety, there was still one core lesson I took away from my entire microdosing experience.

Although It May Sound Like It, Microdosing Is Definitely Not A Magic Pill

Concrete, sustainable change requires accountability, community, and commitment to a higher purpose and vision.

When I microdosed, taking the substance was only the first step. Sure, microdosing made me more aware of the specific changes to make in my life, but it didn’t actually do the work for me. It was 100% my responsibility to listen and take the necessary steps to make actual changes.

Here’s the thing: There are too many people who microdose incorrectly, leading to sub-optimal results and no actual change in their mood and well-being. If you want to see real concrete results from microdosing, it is critical to have the necessary support and guidance on your journey.

Are you ready to experience the “transformational shift” that happens from microdosing?

Science Is Proving the Benefits of Microdosing

That’s right! It’s not just me who has experienced the benefits of microdosing. Science has now proven that microdosing is a critical modality in helping you become “unstuck” on your path towards greater well-being and ease in life.

With the help of microdosing, what used to be big, monstrous, and intimidating now feels as easy as putting on your favorite pair of pants in the morning. Outside of my own personal story, there are thousands of people who have experienced substantial benefits from microdosing.

Social Benefits

Again..don’t just take my word for it. Here is what recent research says about the benefits people experience while microdosing:

  • Improved Mood – Peacefulness, overall well-being, calmness, happiness, and a reduction in the symptoms of depression. It also includes more emotional connection, a general sense of optimism, and an improved outlook on life.
  • Improved Focus – Covers skill sets like the ability to focus or concentrate and enhanced self-awareness.
  • Creativity – Aside from a general sense of improved creativity, this also includes behaviors such as being more open, enhanced curiosity, ability to shift perspectives, and divergent thinking.
  • Self-Efficacy – This applies to such behaviors as ambition, self-motivation, self-confidence, and a sense of agency. It also relates to improved mental health, including increased introspection, the practice of meditation, and other aspects of behaviors tied to self-care.
  • Improved Energy – In this case, “energy” refers to things like mental stimulation, wakefulness, and alertness.
  • Social Benefits – Outside of more engagement with others, this category also includes more empathy, a greater sense of connection, and more extroversion.
  • Cognitive Benefits – When microdosing, the user experience heightened mental clarity, better memory recall, and an improvement in problem-solving ability.
  • Reduced Anxiety – This applies to a reduction in both general and social anxiety.
  • Physiological Enhancement – Includes enhanced visual acuity, cardio endurance, reduction of migraines and headaches, and higher quality of sleep.

Science is now confirming what we have known for years: when microdosing is done with intention and professional guidance, the results are profound.

From Our Community

Microdosed with the intention of enhancing creativity

“When microdosing, I observed several benefits including reduced social anxiety, better confidence when leading groups, the further flourishing of my writing practice, enhanced creativity, and more courage on a day-to-day basis.

The Third Wave’s “Becoming Superhuman” program gave excellent guidance on how to properly microdose with LSD and mushrooms.

Personally, I enjoyed the journaling aspect the most.”

Miki L, Writer

Used microdosing to relieve depression and increase productivity

My intention was to improve productivity, stimulate new ideas, improve social interactions, and break habits leading to bouts of depression.

While microdosing, ideas flowed and I felt a deep connection to people and life. There was a strong feeling of empowerment. Productivity heightened, social barriers dissolved, and gratitude skyrocketed. Old patterns did not disappear, but I felt like I was making a choice to change them.

The Third Wave’s “Becoming Superhuman” program helped me prepare doses and set expectations for how my experience would look. I found it essential for establishing a baseline of information before starting on the journey and optimizing my overall experience.

Dan M, Environmental Consultant

Microdosed with LSD for five weeks for mood improvement

“Microdosing was a beautiful and powerful experience. I noticed a greater appreciation for my life and a consistent sense of calmness and acceptance for the world around me.

The Third Wave’s microdosing course was a fantastic resource and reference point throughout the process. I felt thatI was able to educate myself and feel held throughout the process.

It relieved so much stress.”
