CLASSES


How to Hear Yourself:
A Weekend Immersion in Proprioceptive Writing
The PWC Southeast, Chattanooga, TN
February 11 – 12
10AM – 5PM, Sat. & Sun.

This Weekend is offered through The Chattery

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.

Thinking In Writing
March 14 – April 25 (no class April 4)
6 Tuesday Evenings 6 – 8:45PM

Proprioceptive Writing is a unique method for expression and reflection. Writing is not the end of the practice, but rather the means to gain insight into and power over how we live and think. In the short term PW invigorates your mind. Over time it strengthens your sense of self and connects you to the world. When practiced regularly, PW can bring a new sense of well-being and confidence that is vital to mental health and creativity.
