1:00 pm CST - 3:00 pm CST
Instructor: Mary Theis
Proprioceptive writing is a way to clarify one’s thinking. The three seemingly simple rules: Write what you hear; Listen to what you write, and Be ready to ask the Proprioceptive Question, are powerful tools to help us discover what we truly believe and know. From a Jungian perspective, the writing can help us get in touch with different aspects of the personality, such as persona and shadow. This work can help move toward integrating those aspects and discovering one’s unique self.
In this workshop, the basic proprioceptive writing method will be reviewed and in addition, participants will learn how to distinguish the different thinking voices and how to “listen to” the body sense (focusing) in the process. No prior proprioceptive writing experience necessary.
