Microdosing with psychedelics helps you enter states of flow and high standards of self-care and self-esteem – Paul Austin.

A couple of years ago, my friend Eric Grotefeld spoke to me about Paul as one of the most promising young world leaders in evolutionary awareness, psychedelics, and personal transformation. I was also able to learn more about his work and his fantastic team when I was at the Synthesis retreat, which Paul co-founded alongside Martijn Schrip – which my great friend Natasja Pelgrom is also part of as a leading facilitator.

Creativity requires commitment

Paul is also and mainly the founder and manager of Third Wave, a place of proven reference around the world of psychedelics and their impact on culture, society, human potential and professional development. There Paul leads and teaches online educational programs like Becoming Superhuman – an LSD microdosing course.

Who is Paul Austin?

I traded alcohol for LSD

Pauls specialises in microdosing psychedelic substances as super habits of improvement in capacities such as leadership, well-being, creativity and easier access to flow states. His skills have led him to become an educator, an entrepreneurial consultant, and a speaker. Recently, Paul published his first editorial project, an ebook called “Microdosing Psychedelics: A Practical Guide To Upgrade Your Life“.

Paul Austin has appeared in worldwide publications such as Rolling Stone, BBC, Forbes, New York Times, The Economist and Business Insider. And people like Jason Silva, Steven Kotler or Gerard Adams have all recognised his work.
