Learn to use writing as a powerful tool for expression and reflection

A simple practice anyone can learn, Proprioceptive Writing® (PW) is a form of contemplative writing that enables you to engage your thoughts and feelings in a way that awakens the wisdom inherent in your own mind. While writing proprioceptively, you become open, receptive, and focused. The mind is freed from anxiety and you are left feeling refreshed, energized, and restored to your natural state of vibrant aliveness.

If you can think it, you can write it, and when you write it, you increase your chances of really hearing yourself. This heightened awareness of your thinking allows you to gain perspective on your thoughts and feelings, to even “change your mind” around what previously seemed to be written in stone. You experience your mind in movement and come alive to yourself in new ways.
