THE MICRO-STATES, MICRO-SKILLS, MICRO-DOSE
WHOEVER TRAVELS WITHOUT A GUIDE NEEDS TWO HUNDRED YEARS FOR A TWO-DAY JOURNEY.
ART BY MARK HENSON
What is M Cubed? The M is for micro. Why micro? We believe that big changes happen in small doses. In fact, change is always happening, slowly, and deepening your connections to these subtle shifts is a powerful way to create a healthy relationship with life's rhythms. What happens when you know your system, body, and mind so intimately that you can know when and as you are changing? How would that affect the way you treat yourself? This is what this course is built upon — gaining more connections, motivation, and insights into how you operate and empower your life.
Micro-states, Micro-skills, and Micro-dose:
We give you the understanding to know yourself in all these micro ways by understanding your nervous system, diet, sleep, and your brain chemistry. We give you skills to befriend yourself, feel safe and connected to grow effortlessly. We equip you with the knowledge to take empower yourself. When you participate in these micro ways it doesn't feel like you're taking on an insurmountable task, yet you experience great shifts. These three micro-practices are accessible, playful, and safe.

A LIFETIME OF TOOLS
Because not everyone is ready for or wants to have a large dose of psychedelics. The experience lasts a long time and isn't something you can do while functioning within your everyday business. Plus, the experience can be difficult to integrate into normal life without extra support and guidance.
A small dose, aka a micro-dose, is sub-perceptual, which means the dosage is so small that it doesn't disrupt the way you function. It is gentle and with the proper dosage, there are no feelings of a psychedelic trip. In fact, if you feel like you're tripping, then you are not microdosing.
With microdosing, you can slowly experience the benefits of psychedelic medicines to support your daily life, growing in curiosity, clarity, and creativity.
Classical psychedelics mimic a serotonin receptor called the 5HTR2A. While most of the research has been on high-dose experiences, there is growing evidence that microdosing creates many of the same physiological and psychological benefits as large doses. Some of the benefits are neural plasticity, more neural signaling across the brain networks, and reduced activity in the default mode network (DMN) of our brains. The DMN is loosely connected structures in the brain that communicate with each other to help us function in the world. Activity in the DMN is linked to mental processes like self-awareness, empathy, and thinking about the past or future. While baseline levels of DMN activity are totally normal, an overactive DMN often translates into negative thought loops, replaying memories, or listening to the little voice in our heads—it’s the biological basis for limiting beliefs, being in a rut, and “inside the box” thinking. The results of microdosing assist in seeing more possibilities, having more motivation, and creating new habits.
Microdosing (or any psychedelics) is like a tool to support transformation, much the way going to a therapist isn't necessary to grow, but certainly can help facilitate and expedite change. They are supportive substances (like a supplement, nootropic, or even medicine) that can create greater overall functioning. And they're safe. A 2010 study from the UK measured the harmful impact of many substances on both the individual and how it creates harm to others. The results were that psilocybin and LSD were the least harmful substances and alcohol was the most harmful.
Microdosing has the potential to create neurological openings for creativity and transformation.
Microdosers report a huge range of life-changing benefits, including:
Reduced general and social anxiety
Eliminated symptoms of depression
Heightened focus and concentration
Increased creativity, openness, and curiosity
Greater self-confidence and motivation
Improved mental and physical energy
A deeper sense of connection and empathy
Sharpened mental clarity, memory, and problem solving
Physical enhancement (sharper senses, greater endurance, reduction of migraines)
(reported via Third Wave)
GET CURIOUS. THINK CLEARLY. EXPAND CREATIVELY.
The subtle neurological shifts that may occur when you learn to befriend your nervous system will change the way you experience life. It's like turning the kaleidoscope and you see a whole new design, yet it is still created from the same stuff just oriented in a whole new way. You may become aware of something for the first time. These awakenings shift you out of the rigid mindset and fear-based thinking common to reactive responses, a.k.a, always trying to fix a problem. These awakenings reorient your mindset and offer creative ways to design something new. You get out of the repetitious cycles that have kept you doing the same thing over and over but expecting a different result. As Einstein says, We can't solve our problems at the same base level of thinking that created them. Microdosing assists this process of seeing new options.
The M Cubed Course encourages openness and curiosity. Curiosity softens the heart, relaxes the mind, and teaches the nervous system how to be more resilient in the face of change. When you choose curiosity over fear, you are training the nervous system to stay calm and relaxed. Curiosity inspires creativity. Creativity envisions the life you want and how to have it.
This course offers accessible practices that integrate the neurological changes and help think more divergently. You may see new opportunities and engage with a different mindset or vision. You may think beyond the box and innovate to arrive at a new outcome. Compare the difference in these questions:What is 2+3? versus What is 5? Divergent thinking makes things more interesting because you beome more interested.
The M Cubed Course helps turn your perspective and gives you tools to tend to these awakenings, explore them with a curious mind, and create a new framework for your desired life.
