Discover writing as a path to self-expression, creativity, and emotional health!
In this introductory workshop, participants learn the basics of this radical method for exploring consciousness.

• delivers creative pleasure
A simple method anyone can learn, Proprioceptive Writing® (PW) is a form of meditative writing that teaches you to listen to your thoughts with empathy and curiosity and reflect on them in writing. When engaging in this way you become open, receptive and focused. The mind is freed from anxiety and you feel refreshed, energized, and restored to your natural state of vibrant aliveness.
PW is a powerful tool that can focus awareness, dissolve inhibitions, and build self trust; unburden your mind and resolve emotional conflicts; write and speak with strength and clarity; awaken your senses and emotions; and liberate your creative energies.
Writing is not the end of the practice, but rather the means to gain insight into and power over how you live and think. In the short term PW invigorates your mind. Over time it strengthens your sense of self and connects you to the world. When practiced regularly, PW can bring a new sense of well-being and confidence that is vital to mental health and creativity.
