• My name is Sean Blackwell, and I’ve been researching the spiritual dimension of bipolar disorder since 2007. However, prior to that, I was sent to the psychiatric hospital in 1996, for a short, but traumatic stay. For me, my experience of so-called “acute psychosis” was more like a spiritual awakening, something for which I am forever grateful.

    How I went from being hospitalized to wanting to help people heal their bipolar disorder is quite a story. My inner journey led me on a quest which took me across both North and South America. In fact, it was on a shamanic tour of Peru that I met my wife, Ligia Splendore, who is now a transpersonal psychologist here in Brazil. Together, we live in the city of Sao Paulo, where we help people with bipolar disorder and other related disorders.

    My book shares all the details of how we came to this spiritual calling. By the time you’re finished, you will have a clear idea of who we are and what we’re about.

    With over forty 5-star reviews on, I think you’ll find my book to be an easy-to-read page turner!
