|HOW TO HEAR YOURSELF: A 5-DAY PROPRIOCEPTION WRITING IMMERSION in NYC|
What is it like to really hear yourself? It's unlike ordinary hearing. Itís like entering a realm where you think and feel differently than you did before. Following certain simple rules while you write opens the gate to this blissful realm. The more you immerse yourself in this practice, the more your thoughts open up to you.
For the last 35 years, Linda Trichter Metcalf, originator of the Proprioceptive Method and co-author with Tobin Simon of Writing the Mind Alive, has pioneered writing as a way to access inner hearing. Practiced to music in 25-minute sessions under stress-free conditions, alone and in groups, Proprioceptive Writing (PW)ģ is a simple technique that anyone can learn. Through PW you learn to listen to your thoughts with impassioned curiosity, reflect on them imaginatively, and set them free.
If you feel cut off from creative expression, you can re-connect to yourself and dissolve expressive blocks through PW. Whether youíre a writer or simply enjoy writing, PW can help you discover your voice, narrate experience, locate your life stories, center yourself in your work and your work in yourself. Through daily practice you collect a rich storehouse of raw material which you can draw on in your creative projects.
