How to Hear Yourself: A Weekend Writer's Retreat

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

What is it like to really hear yourself? Unlike ordinary hearing, it’s like entering a world where you know yourself differently than you did before. Following certain simple rules while you write opens a gate to this blissful realm. The more you immerse yourself in this practice, the further you travel from ordinary self-judgments, and the greater your confidence to think in new ways.

Through PW you can: quiet your mind, focus your thought, clarify your feelings, and ignite your imagination. If you feel cut off from creative expression, you can reconnect to your authentic voice through PW.

This is a 2-day writer's retreat, taking place on Saturday, February 11 and Sunday, February 12 from 10am to 5pm both days.
