Sense Writing I
Where Writing Emerges from the Inside Out
Aspiring writers, breakthrough the fear and anxiety holding back your creativity.
Experienced writers, discover how to hone your creative process freed from the pressure to deliver results.
Sense Writing is a groundbreaking neuro-sensory approach to writing that anyone can use to unleash their creativity.
Through your body and nervous system, you will learn to…
Deactivate unnecessary stress responses and bypass anxiety to unlock your voice.
Enrich the internal landscape of your creativity, whether memory or imagination.
Maintain a state of organic flow to the end of a piece, without depending solely on "great ideas.”
How Does Sense Writing Work?
Sense Writing uses over 100 specialized writing and neuro-sensory movement sequences to unlock your creative process. These techniques utilize the brain’s “neuroplasticity.” This term was coined in the second half of the 20th century when researchers found that many functions of the brain (neuro) can be changed (plastic) even until late in life.
In addition to workshops given in cities all over the world, Sense Writing has been taught at New York University's Tisch School of the Arts, Kripalu Retreat and New York's Open Center.
Sense Writing I is both an introductory class and a transformational experience.
Sense Writing II & III (and Sense Writing Online) provide even deeper development of the Sense Writing techniques.
