What Our Community Says about

Microdosing with Third Wave

The inner critical voice, which can be so debilitating, goes quiet and I feel more in my body. My world expands and love has a way in.

Lisa M.

The Psychedelic Renaissance

How psychedelics are transforming the world of mental health

The FDA announced “BREAKTHROUGH THERAPY” status for psilocybin-assisted therapy with severe depression

MDMA therapy has shown a 76% success rate for PTSD, more than 300% more effective than conventional treatments

Ketamine clinics get “significant and rapid” reductions in symptoms of depression, anxiety, and PTSD

Even more exciting is that psychedelics are not just transforming mental health and healing. Our entire paradigm for understanding human potential, performance, and well-being is shifting.

Better yet?

You don’t even need a clinical trial, expensive retreat, or a trip to a far off jungle to experience these benefits for yourself.

Why Microdosing?

A macrodose of psychedelics can be overwhelming. The experience can be difficult to integrate into normal life without extra support and guidance.

Microdosing, on the other hand, is sub-perceptual. It is gentler and more manageable.

With microdosing, you can experience the profound benefits of psychedelic medicines in the context of your daily life.

How Microdosing Works

Microdosing reduces activity in the “default mode network” (DMN) of our brains. In essence, the DMN is activated when we’re replaying memories, imagining the future, or listening to the little voice in our heads.

While baseline levels of DMN activity are totally normal, an overactive DMN often translates into repetitive thought loops, circular thinking, and fixation––it’s the biological basis for limiting beliefs, being in a rut, and “inside the box” thinking.

Microdosing interrupts those patterns while simultaneously fostering new neural connections. As a result, it becomes easier to create new habits, new beliefs, and new ideas.

That makes microdosing one of the most versatile, safe, and powerful tools we have for sustainable change.

Whether you want to relieve anxiety…
Climb out of depression…
Or discover a new well-spring of motivation and creativity…
Microdosing creates a neurological opening for transformation and empowerment.
This is why microdosers reliably report such a huge range of life-changing benefits, including:
  • Elevated mood
  • Reduced general and social anxiety
  • Eliminated symptoms of depression
  • Heightened focus and concentration
  • Increased creativity, openness, and curiosity
  • Greater self-confidence and motivation
  • Improved mental and physical energy
  • Deeper sense of connection and empathy
  • Sharpened mental clarity, memory, and problem solving
  • Physical enhancement (sharper senses, greater endurance, reduction of migraines)
Here’s a closer look at three of the most powerful applications

Mental and Emotional Healing

Our brain’s default mode network sometimes triggers painful thoughts, memories, and emotions. These can replay in our minds over and over so often they can define our experience of life. Microdosing is a powerful tool to release these loops and restore mental and emotional balance.

  • Reduce symptoms of anxiety and depression without numbing yourself.
  • Break cycles of negativity and heal emotional wounds.
  • Enliven your senses and reconnect to purpose.
  • Create meaningful life changes with sustainable results.

Holistic Wellness

Microdosing deactivates the limiting beliefs and patterns of your DMN. This makes personal development easier and the fruits of spiritual practice far more attainable.

It opens up new creative possibilities and depths of connection––within yourself, in your work, in your relationships, with nature and spirit itself.

  • Accelerate your growth and create personal breakthroughs.
  • Transform limiting beliefs, rewrite toxic stories, and heal emotional blockages.
  • Deepen spiritual connection and enhance yoga and meditation.

Peak Performance and Flow States

There is a reason influencers like Tim Ferriss, Joe Rogan, and other high-profile Silicon Valley icons promote the performance-enhancing effects of psychedelics: they work.

  • Access reliable flow states for peak performance in your field.
  • Create alignment between your profession and values.
  • Enhance key entrepreneurial skills: creativity, problem-solving, and emotional intelligence.

After microdosing I became a better mother. I have deeper connections with my kids, less stress and more harmony at home. I’m more empathic to their needs and more communicative of my needs in a caring and calm way.

Jennifer M.

Third Wave’s Microdosing Course helped me find the courage and knowledge to take this unconventional step in healing. It allowed me the opportunity to finally love myself and others.

Melissa P.

I felt more relaxed and in-tune with what I was working on when I was microdosing. It allowed me to concentrate on my coding and not worry about distractions. I’m convinced microdosing is the future! Thank you Third Wave!

with Paul Austin




When microdosing, I experienced so many benefits. 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. Third Wave’s program gave excellent guidance. Personally, I enjoyed the journaling aspect the most.

Miki L., Writer

Setting an intention on the days I chose to dose really impacted my day. Just taking the dose will not fix everything. This is a process and you only get what you put into it. This is the best I’ve felt in over two years.

Dr. L. Sunderland, 40, Physician

I have so much extra physical and emotional energy with microdosing. I don’t feel so dark inside. I have more hope and less fear. For the first time, I actually believe I will be able to get off of my antidepressants. If you’re thinking about joining the course, you have nothing to lose. Your life will only stay the same or get better.

Donna C., 64, Retired

The moment I started taking a microdose I noticed that I could solve problems significantly more easily. I could write slide decks and presentations much faster and easier because I was thinking holographically. I could see entire problems, complete presentations, whole arguments––beginning, middle, and end––all at once.

Mark S, Business Consultant

I’ve been in a creative slump for a couple of years and badly I needed to break out of it. The Third Wave course has been my structure, support, and inspiration for that personal overhaul. Microdosing helps me turn down the dial on my self-doubt and self-reproach and let ideas play together in my consciousness and subconscious. It’s the sensation of dilating my imagination.

Kim W., 49, Editor

I struggled with severe depression for 10 years. I tried every medication and therapy out there. Even electroshock therapy. Nothing helped. After microdosing, I’ve honestly never felt better in my life. So grateful to Third Wave for putting this course out there.

Max T., 28, Student

A Message From Paul,

Founder of Third Wave

Hi, my name is Paul F. Austin and I’m the founder of Third Wave.

The intentional, structured use of microdosing completely transformed my life.

paul austin no background

I went from a struggling, anxiety-ridden entrepreneur to creating a successful educational company, transforming myself into an international speaker at the forefront of a global movement.

I know first-hand how crippling anxiety and depression can be.

I also know how fast life changes when you take control of your mental and emotional well-being—accessing your highest levels of creativity, inspiration, and confidence.

This wasn’t an instant miracle. It took deep work and experimentation. That’s why structure is so important.

This course is the culmination of years of experimentation and hundreds of conversations with leading researchers, therapists, and entrepreneurs. It’s the most comprehensive resource in the world for leveraging the power of microdosing to transform your life.

In my own experience, in conversations with 1:1 coaching clients, and from feedback from our 3,000+ students, I’ve realized the generic “one-size-fits-all” approaches to microdosing don’t always work. They’re just too broad.

That’s why this course is designed as a step-by-step process, walking you through your first 30 days to help you create a custom microdosing protocol for your unique body, your unique situation, and your unique goals.

I believe psychedelics help us access what is already within us. They are a tool, not a magic pill.

Anyone willing to put aside their fear can learn how to use them skillfully and experience the profound benefits this journey can bring.

With microdosing I’m in a better mood overall with more empathy for others. Just do the course, you’ll be a better person for it!

John S., 53, Graphic Artist

Third Wave’s content is superior to every other source out there. After the course I became––and remain––more communicative and emotionally accessible.

Robert B., 76, Retired

Micodosing helped me heal from past traumas and get unstuck. I feel lighter and unburdened. If you are fearful about microdosing then that is exactly a good reason to try it.

Third Wave’s Ultimate Guide to Safely Sourcing Psychedelics

The single greatest challenge for most people who want to explore psychedelics is finding the medicine. But without full knowledge of what to look for, you can potentially put yourself at risk.

That’s why we decided to compile a single guide on how to safely source psychedelics.

Here’s a look at what’s inside this 80+ page guide:

  • How to find powerful plant medicines in unexpected places, from foraging to your local garden store.
  • Links to ethical retailers who legally source their medicines from Indigenous populations.
  • Little-known, inexpensive (and legal) alternatives to classic psychedelics, with virtually zero difference in the subjective effects.
  • Powerful plant combinations that can deepen and amplify any psychedelic experience.
  • Strategies on how to stay safe online.
  • Bonus resources, including some stellar recipes you’re sure to love!
  • Access to our free library of ultimate guides to almost every psychedelic medicine in the world, so you can journey with confidence (know exactly what to expect, background history, what dose to take, and contraindications).
  • And MUCH more…

Third Wave was probably the most helpful resource that I’ve come across. I feel like my depression is completely lifted when I’m microdosing, especially the day of and the day after. I just get so much more done!

Samantha C.

Microdosing can be powerful, but power needs rules to be effective. Don’t neglect the rules.

Frequently Asked Questions

What if I’ve never worked with psychedelics before?

Microdosing is a low-risk way to take a first step into the world of altered states of consciousness.

By following our step-by-step process, you will learn how to find exactly what works best for you and integrate these tools without needing to change your day-to-day activities.

The Microdosing Course will walk you through all the basic education about psychedelics to alleviate any misgivings or fears you may have about trying them.

We will also provide specific advice for first-time users to mitigate any risks and maximize the benefits at the beginning of your protocol.

Why do I need a course? Isn’t this just like taking another supplement or prescription drug?

Psychedelics are NOT like supplements or prescription drugs. They are much more subtle and responsive to the way you use them.

Your environment, your mindset, your body, the activities you choose to engage in, the people you interact with, the frequency of use, and the way you integrate the experience are all important factors in your results.

Will you help me find the actual substance to microdose with?

No, we do not help you source illicit substances. We only provide education and guidance.

We do, however, provide information on legality and present multiple options available to you for sourcing, including a few creative online options.

Our current community members have gone through the process of sourcing for themselves, and if you choose to microdose you will need to do the same.

Are there any reasons I should NOT enroll in this course?

Enrolling in this course does not mean you have to microdose. We provide you with a comprehensive, step-by-step education, including health risk factors, so you make the right decision for you. The decision to microdose is yours.

I’m already “experienced”. Will I get anything out of this course?

Absolutely. Many of our members were already experienced when they joined, but never approached psychedelics with a thorough or systematic framework to optimize for specific outcomes.

This course incorporates the latest research from multiple disciplines, including flow states, trauma, holistic wellness, and the frontiers of personalized health. It will give you new perspectives, methodologies, and inspiration for your microdosing protocol.

I’m seeing a therapist, should I tell them about microdosing?

We are not doctors and do not give medical advice. Your decision to inform a therapist is entirely up to you. We do, however, have specific content that addresses working with therapists, coaches, and medical professionals while microdosing.

You are also welcome to discuss this topic in our private membership forums and hear from other members’ experiences with microdosing and therapy.

How much time will this take?

This microdosing course is designed to go at your own pace. There are 60+ hours of core content. You can finish it in a weekend or stretch it out over a month. We have over 20 hours of expert interviews and bonus content for you to explore and continue your journey after completing the course content.

I’m not good with technology, will this be a good fit for me?

If you can log into your email account and use YouTube, you’ll be able to navigate the course. Everything is streamlined and simplified for ease of use. There are no special skills or extra technology required. If you ever have trouble, our tech support team is happy to assist you any way they can.
