Breathwork for Bipolar and Psychosis | Sean Blackwell | Madness Radio

Madness Radio

Do bipolar and psychosis have a healing potential blocked by suppression, medications, and avoidance? What if we could help people safely and intentionally explore, express, and understand these frightening states? Can breathwork ceremonies open the doors of perception like psychedelics — but without the drugs or risks? Are journeys into altered states too dangerous for people with madness  – or just need to be tailored to individual needs? Sean Blackwell had an overwhelming emotional crisis diagnosed as bipolar that emerged into a spiritual awakening that enriched his life. Today he facilitates and researches breathwork groups: intense focused breathing with blindfolds and music to discover the healing potential at the root of psychiatric crisis. His book and YouTube channel is Bipolar or Waking up. You can also listen to part two of the interview here. https://www.bipolarawakenings.com https://www.youtube.com/user/bipolarorwakingup https://internationalintegrators.org/nita-gage

Sean Blackwell: Bipolar, Awakening, Crisis, and Bipolar Awakening Crisis

Waking Up Bipolar with Chris Cole | Bipolar disorder, spiritual awakening, and everything in between.

In this episode of Waking Up Bipolar, Chris Cole speaks with Sean Blackwell—YouTube sensation, author, retreat facilitator, and spiritual messenger. Since 2007, Sean Blackwell has been researching and teaching about the spiritual dimension and healing potential of bipolar disorder, through his YouTube channel, bipolarORwakingUP. His videos graphically illustrate subjects such as spiritual emergency, transpersonal psychology, and the evolution of consciousness, always demonstrating how these themes relate to transcending the bipolar condition.His book, “Am I Bipolar or Waking Up?” describes his own “bipolar awakening”, subsequent hospitalization and complete recovery, which happened in 1996. His latest project, The Bipolar Awakenings Healing Retreat, is designed to help people who are currently medicated work through the subconscious, bio-energetic material which he views as the root of their disorder. In September of 2016, Sean received his certification as a Holotropic Breathwork facilitator with Grof Transpersonal Training, the official training program of Dr. Stanislav Grof. This education has been fundamental to the development of the healing retreat process he facilitates.As you’ll hear in our conversation, Sean Blackwell has a radical vision for healing what we think of as bipolar disorder and spiritual emergency. And yet, holding such a radical vision does not preclude him from accepting and navigating the many views and experiences of various bodies moving within these complex domains. I’ve always appreciated Sean’s view of himself as a spiritual messenger, and he has certainly served to embolden me over the years.Watch on YouTube: https://youtu.be/YXN511AoQFEWatch on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/wakingupbipolar/videos/2023878284527683/Sean Blackwell's Website: https://www.bipolarawakenings.com/JOIN THE DISCUSSION at https://www.facebook.com/groups/wakingupbipolarChris Cole hosts the Waking Up Bipolar podcast, focused on the intersection of bipolar disorder and spiritual awakening.
