Proprioceptive Writing® (PW) is a method for exploring the psyche through writing. Easy enough for anyone to learn, PW is practiced to music in 25-minute sessions, alone or in groups, under conditions that are designed to promote relaxation and reflection.Through a process we call “Inner Hearing,” PW teaches you to listen to your thoughts with empathy and curiosity and reflect on them in writing. Practiced regularly, this simple yet powerfully effective method gradually opens a path to self-trust.
Other frequently reported benefits include:
~ deepened powers of attention
~ increased self-confidence
~ greater intimacy and spontaneity in relationships
~ enhanced emotional health
~ awakened spirituality
Through PW, people increase their creativity and feel their minds expand, one of life’s greatest pleasures. Widely recognized as an adjunct to the healing arts and as a form of meditation, PW is also valuable to people who wish to write and for writers facing impediments to their work. It returns you to the pleasures of pure process, reminding you why you wanted to write to begin with. Through practice you get personal with your subject matter. Over time you collect a rich storehouse of raw material that you can draw on for your writing projects.
