Welcome to the Align Your Story free lessons and practice

Welcome to Day One! WOOHOO!


You can get to the lesson below.

please watch the very short welcome video

I'm so excited to share this method to get you writing with more power and more ease!

I’m Nadia Colburn, an award winning creative writer, professor of literature, yoga teacher, student of Thich Nhat Hanh, mother, activist, and founder of Align Your Story.

If you have a story, a poem, a song inside of you, this is the place to be! Each day, for five days, I’m going to lead you through a short lesson and practice to help you integrate mind and body so that you can show up more fully on the page—and off. You’ll have ten days to work with the practices and can do them on your own schedule.

Each day’s lesson and practice takes roughly 20 minutes. Please look at your calendar and schedule these 20 minutes with yourself and keep your date with yourself. I promise that if you do, you’ll see real changes!


Choose whichever you prefer.

This practice is largely about listening, so you might want to experiment with what it's like just to listen to the teachings.

If the audio doesn’t play right away, be patient. Wait a few seconds and it should begin :). If the recording stalls in the middle it might be because your device has gone to sleep, so if that happens, please unlock your device (in settings, go to brightness and display) so that the recording can continue playing for the full 20 minutes.

I look forward to seeing you tomorrow!

Each day takes you deeper. Tomorrow, we're going to explore the magic that happens when we bring mind and body into our writing practices.

I'm here to support you!
