Microdosing: Integrating Psychedelics Into Modern Life

Join founder of The Third Wave, Paul Austin, for an evening of discussion, insight, and entertainment revolving around the topic of microdosing psychedelics. Microdosing has been hot as of late, popping up in nearly every mainstream media outlet, major publishing houses, and even in primetime TV shows. But WHY has microdosing gained so much popularity in such a brief period of time? And what does the concept of microdosing mean for how psychedelic substances will become integrated into our cultural and socioeconomic frameworks? In this evening's discussion, Paul will start with the basics of microdosing, what it is, and how it helps people, and then dive further into why microdosing will be a critical component of increasing psychedelic literacy, thus helping to create a cultural infrastructure for altered states of consciousness.

Whether you're an avid microdoser yourself, or you've never heard of the topic before, you will leave from this event with a clear understanding of why microdosing is an important tool for overall well-being, and how we can use it as both individuals and communities to facilitate healing, growth, and awareness.

Paul is committed to changing the cultural conversation about psychedelics through his platform, The Third Wave. Because of his work with microdosing, Paul has been featured in Rolling Stone and Business Insider, with additional pieces in the New York Times, Playboy, and Lifehacker. In June 2015 Paul began his first microdosing protocol. Immediately, he noticed improvements in his energy levels, creativity, and general sense of well-being. The impact of microdosing was so profound on his life that Paul wanted to help others understand how microdosing could be used as a tool for personal growth and understanding.

Pre-sale tickets are $15. We have a limited number of volunteer positions if you can't afford the ticket price (please email, first come, first serve).

Our East Side Venue is no longer hosting events so we are trying out a new space! We are excited that Thymele Arts opened their doors to us. The space is located just off the 101 between Hollywood and Los Feliz. Please enter the building and go up the stairs. Our room will be just down the hall to the left.

There are plenty of parking options. There is an underground parking garage at 1110 North Western Ave north of Thymele. Another option is in the strip mall with the Subway and T-Mobile at the intersection of Western and Santa Monica or across the street, behind the bakery with the black metal fencing. Allow extra time because traffic in the area can be a bit intense.

IMPORTANT NOTICE: This group is being designed as a secure space. It is not a place to seek, encourage, or participate in the procurement of controlled substances. Do not bring, buy, sell, transfer, or arrive on any illegal substances, or swap information on how to buy them. Members who violate these basic house rules will be removed from the group and will not be allowed to attend future events.
