Mastering the Skill of Psychedelics

I’ve been wanting to bring someone on the show to discuss the safe and effective use of psychedelics for leadership development and mental health for some time now – and this week’s guest couldn’t be a more perfect human to help us all get acquainted with the power of these transformational tools.
Paul Austin is a coach, author, and founder of Third Wave, one of the worlds most comprehensive resources for the safe and effective use of psychedelics. He is a pioneer in field and has educated millions through his work. He has been featured in Forbes, Rolling Stone, and the BBC’s Worklife. Paul is also the author of Mastering Microdosing: How to Use Sub-Perceptual Psychedelics to Heal Trauma, Improve Performance, and Transform Your Life.
In this episode, Paul shares how through clear intentions, mentorship, and exploration, anyone can master the skill of safely using psychedelics to facilitate health and awakening. Psychedelic therapies have dramatically improved the quality of my life, so it is an absolute dream to be able to share Paul’s wisdom with you all.
