Paul M Vincent

Paul is not your average wellness expert. As a former world-class athlete, seasoned explorer, and academic pursuing a PhD in Psychedelic Therapy Studies he breaks the mold

Paul guides you beyond fads and quick fixes, unlocking your dormant potential for breakthrough transformation:

  • From expedition athlete to mindfulness coach: Pushing his limits physically and mentally taught him resilience and the power of the human spirit.
  • Living with indigenous tribes: These experiences shattered Pauls rigid perspective on the world, opening him up to the richness of diverse ways of knowing and the importance of looking beyond limitations.
  • Taoist ‘The way’ Buddhism and Stoicism: Dismantling these seemingly powerful limitations, only to find there was no real substance holding it all in place.  The walls he thought confined him, began to crumble away.
  • Master’s degree in Human Performance and ongoing studies for a Phd in trauma-based psychedelic therapy: This academic grounding provides a scientific lens to understand human behavior and potential for healing.




I'm thrilled to share that I've completed a manuscript exploring the intricacies of self-mastery. My passion for personal growth and forging a new direction for humanity culminated in writing this book that is a map to unlocking our full potential.  While the journey to finding its perfect home continues, I'm currently seeking representation, however I'm confident its message will soon resonate with readers and hopefully empower individuals on their unique paths to fulfillment.

In “Unraveling Civilization,” Paul M Vincent delves deep into the emotional underpinnings of human civilization. He reveals how our genetic coding, honed over millennia of vulnerability, has shaped the world we inhabit today—a world dominated by consumerism, fear, and the cult of individualism. Beneath the surface of our conscious minds lies a silent binary code, dictating our biases, attachments, and aversions.  Vincent paints a compelling portrait of a species driven by primal emotions, unwittingly guided by invisible scripts towards an uncertain future.  The time has come to shed the limitations of cognitive prowess and embrace the emergent potential of genuine awareness.

What we perceive as reality is merely a fraction of the vastness that surrounds us. In “Beyond the Veil: Redefining Reality,” Paul M Vincent challenges conventional notions by delving into the limitations of our sensory perception. We spend our lives tethered to the tangible, yet much of our existence unfolds in the intangible realm of thought. Our brains, unable to discern between the real and the imagined, often flood us with emotions triggered by mere thoughts. Vincent prompts us to question the very fabric of reality, urging us to acknowledge the mysteries that lie beyond our senses and scientific logic.

Discover the profound intricacies of human connection in this enlightening talk. Unveil the fundamental role it plays in our biological makeup, navigating through the complexities of societal norms, personal desires, and primal instincts that influence our relationships. Paul intricately delineates between transient biological attraction and the enduring essence of authentic love, shedding light on how prioritizing the former may lead to emotional detachment. Gain invaluable insights into the transformative potential of genuine connection, empowering you to cultivate deeper bonds and embark on a journey of personal growth.

Unlock your full potential as the steward of your own hominid in this thought-provoking talk. While acknowledging the importance of physical care, we delve deeper into transcending the boundaries of our biology and ego to cultivate a truly fulfilling existence. Drawing from insights gained working with high performers, Paul inspires us to challenge our systems through intentional practices aimed at enhancing resilience and overall well-being.
