Explore your mind through writing

! Because of Covid-19 the Amsterdam May workshop is replaced by an online version. It will start on Thursday May 28th and Friday 29th with a 3-hour morning session in which I explain the basics of Proprioceptive Writing. You will also immediately start writing, or as we say: doing your Writes. With the guidelines you receive, you can continue writing at home. The next classes will be on: June 4th, 11th and 18th (max. 2 hours). In a time when so many thoughts and feelings may rise, Propriocepitive Writing will strengthen your emotional health.

Proprioceptive Writing is an amazingly effective, simple writing method everyone can learn.
If you want to:

  • Find your writing voice
  • Build self-trust
  • Stimulate your creativity
  • Awaken your senses and emotions
  • Strengthen your focus
  • Look at your career from a new perspective
  • Improve your relationships
  • Make a deeper connection with your spiritual self

Start writing and surprise yourself by what you will find.

Harttaal and Proprioceptive Writing

For Wies Enthoven reading the book Writing the Mind Alive, The Proprioceptive Method for Finding your Authentic Voice changed her life. Wies: “Because of writing a book about having an illness that made doctors frown their brows, I knew how important writing can be to get more grip on life. Proprioceptive Writing offers a liberating way of exploring your own thinking.”

After studying with Linda Trichter Metcalf, Ph.D., the founder of Proprioceptive writing, Wies brought this method to the Netherlands with her company Harttaal, Language of the Heart. As a certified PW teacher she is also connected to the Proprioceptive Writing faculty in the United States.

Wies Enthoven is a certified Proprioceptive Writing teacher, Dutch teacher, journalist and writer. She has a master in Pyscholinguistics. Find out more about Wies.
