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.”

Sam K, Massage Therapist

Meet Paul Austin, Lead Microdosing Instructor

Paul Austin is the founder and CEO of The Third Wave, an educational platform to steward the responsible and intentional use of psychedelics. He has been featured in Rolling Stone, WebMD, and Business Insider for his work in helping leaders and visionaries integrate psychedelic medicine into who they’re becoming. Paul also co-founded Synthesis, a legal psilocybin retreat center in Europe, where he led high-dose journeys for dozens of attendees.

Microdosing and general psychedelic use has proved to be the most effective tool on Paul’s own path of development, growth, and becoming. When used with intention, reverence, and clarity, these medicines help expand our awareness, integrating all aspects of who we are with the vision of who we want to become.

It is with great excitement and energy that Paul brings you into the world of Becoming Superhuman, a concept rooted in the necessity of cultivating agency to create our own values and belief systems in this new landscape of cultural creation.
