Proprioceptive writing is a method for exploring the psyche through writing developed since 1976 by Linda Trichter Metcalf and Tobin Simon. It is practiced to music in 25-minute sessions, alone or in groups, under conditions that are designed to promote relaxation and reflection. Through a process the method’s creators call “inner hearing” students learn to listen to their thoughts with empathy and curiosity and reflect on them in writing.
