When you align your story, you write—and live—
​from your center with more peace, creativity and courage. 
I’m Nadia Colburn, PhD

I help you write their best work and integrate you vision and voice.

Whether you are a published author, a poet, novelist, memoir writer, or whether you are a business person, a stay at home mom, or a retiree, I can help you come into closer contact with the fullness of your creative life. 

I bring together the rigor of an Ivy League education and my skills as an award winning writer with the insight and heart of my experiences as a Kundalini yoga teacher, serious student of Buddhist teacher Thich Nhat Hanh, activist, mother and wife. 

My unique approach guides you to bring mind and body for greater power, insights and a vision of a more healthy, whole world and a more expressive life.

I can guide you through any and every step of the creative process so that you write what you want and come into your full abilities on—and off—the page. 


I have a wide variety of programs and can develop programs suited to your individual needs. I hope you'll explore them and reach out to me with any questions!

“Taking Nadia’s class changed my life and I do not exaggerate when I say
​it was how I found my true life, my true self.”  ~ Joanne Reynolds
