Transform Fragmentation and Distraction to Wholeness and Purpose
We have been given a unique view into ourselves over the last 12 months.
Without our usual routines and comforts, aspects of Self that have gone unseen and unheard for too long are closer to the surface. More accessible.
While challenging in many ways, this can be a catalyst for healing, growth and resilience.
This is an opportunity to transform fragmentation both within and without.
To transmute distraction and stagnation into purpose.
To become whole.
This potent moment can become your gateway to healing, growth, and transformation.
It is an opportunity to…
- Release challenging emotions and deepen self-awareness
- Cultivate powerful new skills to disrupt patterns of numbing, avoidance, and addiction
- Understand and weed out the deep roots of self-sabotage and doubt
- Discover new found clarity, direction, and purpose
- Reconnect to joy, beauty, and flow
- Break through inner blocks to inspire and reinvigorate your life
You Don’t Have to Do It Alone
One of the most powerful actions we can take in this period of disconnection is to reconnect at a new level with like-minded souls, lifting each other up into a lighter, more integrated, and holistic way of being.
Psychedelics are a powerful tool for accelerated personal, spiritual, and professional growth…
…but psychedelics don’t work alone.
Your mindset, habits, and personal practices are crucial in using this unique medicine.
We are here to teach you how to do that and to support your ongoing healing journey.
The Microdosing Experience
This is a live six-week immersion program using microdosing, intention, and breathwork as tools for accelerated growth:
Personally, Professionally, and Spiritually.
The program unfolds in 3 phases:
- Phase 1 is preparation, with a focus on creating clarity, group connection, and preparing for a breakthrough experience.
- Phase 2 is a guided breathwork ceremony to take you deeper into yourself, catalyzing your breakthrough experience.
- Phase 3 is perhaps the most important: integration of your breakthrough ceremony with microdosing, coaching guidance, and community support.
Through our Microdosing Experience, we help you ground your new insights, connections, and perspectives to improve the quality of your day-to-day life.
This leads to a broad range of benefits that can last long after the medicine is gone. The most commonly self-reported ones include:
- Elevated mood
- Reduced general and social anxiety
- Fewer 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)
- Pain reduction without pharmaceutical medications
Integrating Cutting-Edge Research on Psychedelic Transformation and Healing
Drawing upon Third Wave’s extensive network of researchers, therapists, and coaches, the Microdosing Experience is intentionally designed for long-lasting impact in your life.
We work together to empower yourself with tools to walk your unique path.
Each week you will have a live class focusing on a different theme that takes you deeper into the transformational potential of microdosing. Following the class, there is a weekly Q&A to help you address any issues and optimize your microdosing experience.
Here’s how the program is organized:
Week 1: Clarifying Purpose
Purpose, desire, and intention fuel our personal growth and evolution. Psychedelics are substances that make you highly suggestible to change. In leveraging thought exercises and journaling prompts, we help you move closer to authentic purpose and deep desire.
Week 2: Eliminate Distractions
Where attention goes, energy flows. By mindfully pruning away external distractions as preparation for your breakthrough ceremony, we generate more energy to fuel your goals and intentions.
Week 3: Setting Your North Star with Breathwork Ceremony
Breathwork ceremony is a potent catalyst for healing, transformation, and visionary inspiration. We will guide you to create safe, sacred space at your own location. With the power of breath and sound, you can enter into an altered state and uncover your new North Star.
Week 4: Vulnerability and Accountability
The Breakthrough Ceremony can stir up repressed emotions and powerful realizations. It takes time for us to fully process and understand the meaning and value of the experience. By being vulnerable and holding space for the community, we rediscover how to be a whole person.
Week 5: Integration
Unless we actively integrate our Ceremony experience, the lessons, the truths, and the visions can fade away like a dream. Drawing from time-tested practices of transformational psychotherapy, we help you ground your insights into your daily life.
Week 6: Sustainability
What you discover in the Microdosing Experience is just the beginning. We will show you how to forge your path forward, building on the momentum you created to take full ownership of your future.
“More Resilient, Motivated, Creative, and Joyful”
What past participants say about The Microdosing Experience
“The Microdosing Experience completely reshaped my perception of my personal identity, allowing me to see more possibilities in my life. I feel more resilient and emotionally attuned.”
“It’s especially great to have a community of people who are going through the same thing you are. And I’m not normally a “group” person. I didn’t want the program to end!”
“The Microdosing Experience changed my life in such a positive direction: I have more energy; I am more motivated in life; I have a more positive outlook on life”
“Since the Microdosing Experience, I have significantly less resistance in my life and work. I worry less and am more creative. My health is back on track. I have more joy. I have more mental space to make smart choices. Even my tennis game improved!
Five Pillars for Safe, Sustainable Transformation
We designed this program to be both gentle and powerful. Each of the 5 pillars of the program plays an important role in your experience.
Let’s look at how the different elements of the program work together:
Immersion, Community, Breathwork Ceremony, Structured Microdosing, and Integration.
Deepening Connection and Growth Through Shared Immersion
Microdosing opens up our usual filters and relaxes judgmental thinking. It opens our hearts to deeper and more authentic ways of relating –– both to ourselves and others. That’s why going through this process as a group immersion is so valuable.
Our individual journeys are reflected and amplified by the tribes we participate in.
It’s an opportunity to learn from each other’s challenges, and to better understand both ourselves and humanity.
The group acts as a growth accelerator.
And more importantly, after months of lockdown and social distancing, you have the opportunity to create deeper, more authentic connections with others who understand your experience.
Safe Space for Open Dialogue Without Risking Your Reputation
As part of the Microdosing Experience, you get access to our private Slack group so you can connect, share, and support each other away from the prying eyes of social media algorithms.
This is a safe and secure space. You can openly discuss your process, concerns, and questions without fear of judgment or reputational risk.
Plus, you’ll get lifetime access to Third Wave’s private membership community so you can continue to connect with like-minded souls long after the program’s close.
Safe space is especially important in our current climate of culture polarization and fracturing.
Peak Experience Through Breathwork Ceremony
The Microdosing Experience builds momentum towards a powerful breathwork ceremony.
While microdosing can be a stand alone protocol, we offer the powerful opportunity to work with a seasoned breathwork practitioner to deepen your experience and enhance your potential for healing and transformation.
Breathwork is an ancient practice. Its modern resurgence was developed by Stan Grof, the godfather of LSD psychotherapy, following the onset of psychedelic prohibition.
With driving music, deep rhythmic breathing can create a powerful altered state of consciousness remarkably similar to a macrodose psychedelic experience.
Facilitated By Philippa Wilkin
Our guest facilitator Philippa is a highly experienced Transformational Breathwork facilitator and has worked extensively with Synthesis, a leading psychedelic retreat center based in Amsterdam. She has a deep understanding of the healing potential of altered states and how breathwork can work with psychedelics to create extraordinary breakthroughs.
She will guide you to create a sacred space at your own location where we will all go through the breathwork ceremony together.
The Microdosing Experience helps you make the most from your experience with a powerful combination of guided preparation, expert support, community, and microdosing.
Together it creates the perfect container for deep work, profound healing, and personal realization.
This is the turning point in Third Wave’s Microdosing Experience program.
Integration and Optimization for Lasting Transformation
After the breathwork ceremony, we will focus on integrating your experience and moving forward with positive action.
Integration is an essential step to ensure your ceremony isn’t just “another experience”. Instead, you will have the necessary traction to creating positive, sustainable changes in your life.
Harnessing the Power of Structured Microdosing
A structured microdosing protocol helps you sustain the ”afterglow” of the breathwork ceremony for weeks instead of days.
It is a powerful tool to help bring the experience of the ceremony into your daily life.
Our process is designed from the ground up with input from therapists and psychologists for sustainable transformation and accelerated growth. But the journey doesn’t stop there.
The next step is ongoing optimization.
With guidance and feedback, we will help you to refine the skill of microdosing as a tool to uplift your daily life as well as sustain deeper transformational experience
That way you can continue your own self-directed journey with microdosing for emotional healing, accelerated growth, enhanced creativity, and higher performance.

Optimize Your Experience With Third Wave’s Microdosing Course
Psychedelics are unique because their effect is dependent on context and intention, often referred to as “set and setting.”
Because microdosing is sub-perceptual…
…structure, tracking, and guidance are even more important to get the full benefits.
That’s why you also get access to Third Wave’s Official Microdosing Course as part of your purchase.
Redesigned and upgraded, our course integrates the latest psychedelic research, transformational psychology, and timeless wisdom traditions into one simple and easy to use framework.
This is everything you need to optimize and evolve your microdosing.

How to Ethically, Legally, and Safely Source Your Medicine
One of the most common questions we receive is about how to source medicine for microdosing.
As a part of our microdosing course, you also get a special module specifically about sourcing medicine and legal concerns.
We will provide insight into how you can discreetly get the materials you need for microdosing.
What our community says about their Microdosing Experience
“This is like a graduate course in the use of psychedelics and microdosing.”
“I felt so much less isolated by connecting with people from other countries during the pandemic. Sharing the experience with such a wide range of people was incredibly beneficial mentally, emotionally and spiritually. I learned so much more than on my own.”
“It’s important to know that there are others like you out there. People who are along a similar journey, who want to be vulnerable and share the things they’re working on. It created a supportive container for self discovery.”
“With such a resurgence in psychedelic science it’s easy to get overwhelmed with information. The MDE program makes it easy to learn the essentials. It’s especially great to have a community of people going through it with you. I didn’t want the experience to end!”

This Is NOT For You If…
- You want a “quick fix” for life’s problems. This is not a miracle cure. This immersion program requires active participation. The effects of psychedelics can be unpredictable and we cannot guarantee any specific results.
- You want a substitute for professional medical advice. While microdosing can aid in certain conditions, we do NOT offer medical advice or therapy. Psychedelics are not a panacea but a tool for illuminating issues to be resolved. The commitment to being present with difficult emotions, to seek additional support if needed, and to trust the process is paramount.
- You want a substitite for professional mental health guidance. While microdosing can help with mental health issues in powerful ways, this program is NOT a replacement for professional mental health advice. If you have serious mental health issues, consult with your mental health professional.
- You want personal hand-holding. The Microdosing Experience is a group immersion experience. If you would like more personalized, individual support, please check out our coaching package here.

A Note On Our Intake Process
Once you complete your payment, we will send you an intake form.
This is an important and required part of the process. The intake form helps us understand your current situation, your goals, and your experience with psychedelic medicine.
Based on your responses we will adapt the course curriculum and coaching framework to fit your needs.
If for any reason we feel that you may not be a good fit for the program, we reserve the right to cancel your enrollment and issue a full refund.
What if I can’t find the actual substance for microdosing? Will the course provide it for me?
I would like more 1:1 guidance, what are my options?
What if I can’t attend one of the calls?
What if I’ve already done a microdosing protocol?
By integrating best practices and complementary modalities, even those experienced with microdosing will find tremendous value here.
The benefit of being part of an intimate group going through the experience together is also a huge plus.
It’s one thing to experiment with microdosing by yourself. It’s another thing to do it within a web of supportive, informed individuals. This is why we offer a private slack group as part of the Microdosing Experience.
What if I’ve never done psychedelics before?
Our course will walk you through all the basic education about psychedelics to alleviate any misgivings or fears you may have about trying them, plus you will have direct coaching and Q&A sessions to help handle any issues that may arise.
We will also provide specific advice for first-time users to mitigate any risks and maximize the upsides of beginning a new protocol. You can also check out Jim Fadiman’s website where you can find more FAQs and scientific information on the topic.
Are there any conditions or reasons why I shouldn’t take the course?
- If you have been diagnosed as schizophrenic or bipolar (I or II)
- If you are pregnant or breastfeeding
- If you have red and green color blindness (preliminary research indicates microdosing can lead to “visual trails”)
Why are you doing breathwork instead of a macrodose of psychedelics for the ceremony?
Am I eligible for a refund?
In the event that wish to discontinue registration in the Microdosing Experience beyond the scheduled time of the first class, you are no longer eligible for a refund, but you may request that your purchase be credited towards private coaching sessions, instead.
