Writing the Mind Alive A Proprioceptive Writing Immersion

For everyone; no prior writing experience required.

What is it like to really hear your inner thoughts? Unlike ordinary hearing, it’s like entering a world where you know yourself differently than you did before. Following the three simple rules of Proprioceptive Writing® (PW) opens a gate to this blissful zone. Through PW, you learn to focus attention, hear inner thought as voice, and engage your mind’s hidden proprioception sense—its capacity to sense itself. Practiced regularly in 25-minute sessions, this writing method unburdens your mind, liberates your creative energies, and connects you to your spiritual self. The more you immerse yourself in this practice, the further you travel from limiting self-judgments, and the greater your confidence to trust yourself.

Linda Trichter Metcalf, originator of PW, has theorized the mind’s proprioceptive sense and pioneered writing as a way to expand consciousness through inner hearing. In this program, Linda guides you toward hearing yourself in new, often liberating ways. A simple technique anyone can practice, PW is a potent meditational tool that can be used for therapeutic and creative purposes. If you feel cut off from self-expression, you can reconnect to your authentic voice through this approach to process writing.

“Proprioceptive Writing helped me forge the connections between my intellect, my heart, and my pen that eventually became Women’s Bodies, Women’s Wisdom, a work that I couldn’t have dreamed possible when I started Proprioceptive Writing.” — Christiane Northrup, MD
