The true potential of Psychedelics — and microdosing — for inner nourishment and peak performance

Interviewing Paul Austin about psychedelics, microdosing and unleashing human potential

“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 terms of evolutionary awareness, psychedelics, and personal transformation. I was also able to learn more about his work and that of his fantastic team when I was at the Synthesis retreat, which is co-founded by Paul alongside with Martijn Schrip — which my great friend Natasja Pelgrom is also part of as a leading facilitator.

“Creativity requires commitment

Paul is also, and mainly, 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?
