Course Description

Proprioceptive Writing is a meditational discipline. It is a method of listening to thoughts and feelings, a method of reflection. In this process, we can slow down, notice details, and give ourselves permission to experience emotions as they arise. Over time, the writer is able to reflect more clearly. As chatter dissipates, stories emerge and the relationship with the inner self becomes more familiar and more intimate. The self emerges more frequently from burdens of stress, current concerns and questions of everyday existence. This workshop utilizes the Metcalf/Simon Method of Proprioceptive Writing, which anyone can begin to use immediately.
