Linda Trichter Metcalf, teacher, author, and pioneer in mind exploration, received her graduate degrees in English literature from New York University.
In the mid-1970s, while a professor at Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, New York, she created the practice known as Proprioceptive Writing® to help students express their deepest thoughts and feelings.
Since then, Proprioceptive Writing has been brought to elementary school students, homeschool students, medical doctors, and PhD students. It is the only writing practice that encourages participants to slow down their thoughts and focus on what Linda calls “inner hearing,” listening to thoughts with empathy and curiosity, before reflecting on them through writing.
With Tobin Simon, Linda left academia and cofounded the Proprioceptive Writing Center, where she teaches and directs their teacher-training program. In 2002, Linda and Toby published Writing the Mind Alive: The Proprioceptive Method for Finding Your Authentic Voice. In Linda’s workshops, participants hear themselves in new, often liberating ways.
