Writing for Everyone: A 1-Day Writer's Retreat

  • The Proprioceptive Writing Center, Southeast 1401 Williams St. Suite 210 Chattanooga, TN 37408 USA (map)

In this one-day retreat, you’ll learn and begin to use a unique approach to expression called Proprioceptive Writing®, (PW). With PW, you can express your thoughts and feelings in writing and explore them so that you come alive to yourself and your experience in new ways.  A simple method anyone can learn, PW is a powerful tool that can be used to:

~ Liberate your creative energies 

~ Write and speak with strength and clarity

~ Awaken your senses and emotions

~ Focus awareness, dissolve inhibitions, and build self-trust

~ Unburden your mind and resolve emotional conflicts

~ Connect more deeply with your spiritual self

PW is widely recognized as an adjunct to the therapeutic arts, a form of meditation, and a valuable writing tool both for people wishing to write and for those facing writing blocks.
