  • Nomadic, we should always go for what our heart tells us, my heart tells me to go the path of an alternative psychotherapist, I’m learning plenty of methods now that deal with helping a person to find their own way of healing and I think, my own experience will help me with it. I wish you all the best and thanks for leaving me a comment. 🙂

  • Thanks so much, I got a good laugh out of this. What a pity that you have no hacking skills. 😉 Lol.
    It’s wonderful to get so much positive feedback from sharing my story. I do hope, more and more people get out of the mainstream psychiatry trap! It would be even better, if one day mainstream psychiatry means healing people with more effective methods than just what they see as helpful today. That’s why I’m doing an education as an alternative therapist, I would like to help make a difference in my environment. It’s just a little drop, but we have to start somewhere. 🙂

  • Thanks for taking your time to read and comment. It was so wonderful to read about another healing experience of a person. 🙂
    I heard about Thompson and I assume that it helps being a competitive person when it comes to determination. It was this trait and the ‘never give up’- stance that helped me find the right healing method. I had so many backlashes, but in the end determination and persistence led to my healing success.
    I know a bit about Reich and Lowen, since they are part of my therpapist education. 😉 It’s really interesting and learning about all these things is enriching my life every day. From today’s perspective I’m grateful for my whole experience, although I don’t wish anyone the pain and struggle I had to go through.

  • Hi Marek,

    nice that you like my art. 😉
    I read the article about Grof’s work and I have the impression that this guy never had a breathwork experience in his life. I cannot agree with some things he says because of what I experienced myself and in the work with others. However, I’m not here to convince you or others of the healing potential of breathwork, all I intended was to share a true story that gives hope and inspiration to those who seek some.
    It would be nice, if you didn’t condemn something that has worked for many people in a beneficial way. Hope that you’ll find your peace one day, wishing you the best of luck! 🙂

  • Hi Casey, I’m sorry you’re stuck in such a difficult situation. I would recommend looking into body energy related work, which helps a lot with blockages that lead to tensions and inner issues like people with a diagnosis of bipolar disorder most often face. My experience was that talk therapy and medication helped a bit to function better, but it didn’t resolve the roots of the problems. Please, don’t give up looking for alternative solutions. Wishing you all the best of luck!!!

  • Thanks for giving your insights here. It’s true, there is never one solution for everybody and therefore we all need to try finding one that is the right fit for us. I was so very unhappy with the medication that I swore to myself that I would not stop searching for a way of healing myself instead of accepting my meds as the final solution. I’m very grateful that I found my right fit.
    I wish you all the best!

  • Thanks for taking your time to read my story. I would like to say that I’m not the only success story of Sean’s, but I’m one of the very few people that go public with such a sensitive and personal story. I spoke to a lot of people and they thought, I’d be courageous to expose myself like this. But my healing was so personal to me and such a life changer that I had the deep wish in me to encourage people, who are told that bipolar disorder can’t be healed and have to be medicated for life, to keep looking for activating the self healing potential.
    I found it so important to explain the healing process of mine that I put a lot of energy in artistic videos telling about it. It makes me happy every day that people write to me and say that the art helped them to get an idea of what it was like and feel inspired and encouraged. That’s all worth sharing it on such a great platform like MIA.
    And I don’t know where you get this idea from about clients not being allowed to talk about retreat prices, all info is available to the public as a pdf on Sean’s website. I paid 3000€ for my first retreat that healed and changed my life ending my horrible suffering! Believe me, it was all worth it for me!
    Good luck to you for your own path and thanks for the good wishes.

  • Thanks a lot for your inspiring feedback. It’s so good to hear you could get rid of the label, those labels really add so much to the suffering!!!
    I was not on meds before I was diagnosed, but I had a spiritual awakening prior to it.
    I’m glad you liked my videos and art, I feel blessed to have art to express my true nature.
    Thanks again and best wishes to you too!

  • Thanks for commenting; so true, we are all energy and surrounded by energy. It’s the challenge to deal with these energies so that they have benefits and don’t harm us. Everyone can heal themselves, because like you said, it’s available to everyone! But it’s not easy to find the access to the inner healer, so I’d like to encourage everyone to keep looking! 🙂

  • Thanks to you for reading and commenting. Breath contains all healing and there are several approaches on working with breath and I’m glad more and more people rediscover what already has been around since ancient times. We have to discover the inner healer in us. We can only heal ourselves. That’s so great about my experience with breathwork, I did everything on my own and Sean was just facilitating the healing process. That was key for my healing.
    Thanks again and I wish you all the best!

  • Thank you for taking your time to give me your feedback. I’m so happy that my story seems to give hope.
    The Bipolar Breathwork is not only for people diagnosed with Bipolar Disorder but for everyone suffering from life traumas and psychoses. It’s one working approach to clear out energy blockages that cause a lot of these ‘bipolar symptoms’. It worked for me and I would recommend to try it, but everyone should try the approach that feels like a ‘right fit’. That’s important for the healing. I went with my intuition and it was good I did.
    You are right about the current mainstream psychiatric system, and it will take a bit until things improve, but that’s why I chose to do an education as a an alternative psychotherapist now that I’m healed, because I would like to help make a difference. Thanks again and all the best for you!

  • Thanks for taking your time for reading and commenting! 🙂
    This summer I had the chance to support two people who did a retreat with Sean and who were on lithium for years. After the retreat they both could get off medication and could feel a new balance they had never experienced before. They have back their lives and even in a better way! It’s amazing what energy work can heal!
    All the best for you 🙂

  • Thanks so much for taking your time to read my story and commenting on it. I’m so grateful for getting the chance here on MIA to share my story!
    It’s great to know that you could come off meds by similar techniques and improve your life. It was a long, tough journey for me, but using breathwork to clear out my traumas and blocked energies was the right fit for me and really changed my whole life, views and beliefs. I can only recommend to give it a try. I’m grateful for the whole experience that will help me when working with clients in the future once I’m a certified therapist.
    I hope you’ll enjoy reading Sean’s book, since you might have some ‘aha’-moments there like me. And as you are German, you might be also interested in my German youtube channel ‘BipolareSeele’, where you find very informative videos by Sean with German subtitles.
    I wish you all the best on your personal healing path. 🙂
