Proprioceptive Writing Led by Kaitlin Briggs

This year marks the third time that Kaitlin has conducted this invaluable writing workshop.

In this workshop. you will learn the basics of Proprioceptive Writing* (PW) while in a dynamic community of others doing the same. This method is accessible, healing—and transformative. Learn how to voice your own experience and interact with thought flow. Learn how to follow your felt sense and make your writing—your own. Unearth new images, content, ideas, and stories; Unravel thinking knots—all through writing. You may be searching for a place to begin, or you may want to bring your work to a deeper level. In both cases, PW lays a foundation for creative work and gives you a process to return to. Artists, poets, aspiring and accomplished writers, non-writers alike find a PW workshop to be an uncommon event.

* Proprioceptive Writing (PW) is not formal writing, nor stream-of-consciousness writing but a regular, disciplined practice that can deepen attention and free us to think, write, and speak with strength and clarity. We write together to music and candlelight in 25-minute sessions taking the emphasis off writing, and focusing on the experience of inner hearing. (See Writing the Mind Alive,
