I will describe a new, generic mechanism for realizing a period of slowly-rolling inflation through the use of an analog of 'magnetic drift.' I will demonstrate how the mechanism works through two particular worked examples: Chromo-Natural Inflation, which exists as a purely 4D effective theory, and a version that can appear naturally in string theory.
