*This group meets on the following dates: October 6, November 3, and December 8 from 1-3 pm.
*Intended for those who have attended an introductory Proprioceptive Writing workshop. If you are new to proprioceptive writing, the Jung Center would be happy to coordinate an individual session with the presenter before the series for a $45 fee. Please contact the Center directly if interested.
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 (What do I mean by…?), are powerful tools to help us discover what we truly believe and know. This method can also be a way to deepen the self discovery via the inner journey. Participants can learn to listen to their many speaking voices and, from the Jungian perspective, to identify the persona and begin to interact with shadow aspects of personality. This work can help one begin to integrate those aspects of the personality and move toward discovering one’s unique self.
This program is meant to allow participants to expand their experiential understanding of Jungian concepts such as persona and shadow through the use of proprioceptive writing as a tool. It is designed for those who have had an introduction to propriocptive writing.
