OWR 180-F21 | Proprioceptive Writing

OWR 180-F21 | Proprioceptive Writing

October 6th-27th

Maximum Enrollment: 8 LBS

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. Learn more: www.pwriting.org.


October 6th-27th 

4 sessions via Zoom
Wednesdays: 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm EST

Each 2.5 hour meeting will include a writing session, so you’ll need a quiet space with a door that closes, where you can sit at a cleared table. Have at hand a candle, a pen, unlined white paper, a stapler, and tissues.
