Sean Blackwell provides an online presentation on Bipolar Breath-work and his Bipolar Awakening retreats in Brazil. Bipolar breath-work is an innovative adaptation of Stanislav Grof's Holotropic Breath-work. Sean's Bipolar Awakening retreats draws upon inspiration from the pioneering models of both Soteria House and Diabasis to facilitate recovery from psychological crisis , for example, extreme states of consciousness that have been defined as spiritual emergency experiences. During this presentation he explains the history of how his work developed, the holistic framework he uses, the methodology and procedure; this is contained within an overall theory and practice behind his clinical work with clients. The talk finishes with questions asked by attendees and answered by Sean.
