Susanna Harwood Rubin
Susanna Harwood Rubin is back! Susanna was my guest on episode 165, and we continue our intimate conversation here. Our conversation runs the gamut (but somehow all ties together), ranging from her recent trip to her spiritual home in India, to living fully and joyfully with metastatic breast cancer, to her passion for teaching her own form of “embodied writing.”  

About Susanna Harwood Rubin

Off the mat, Susanna spends her time writing and drawing. Her book, Yoga 365: Daily Wisdom for Life On and Off the Mat, has sold over 30,000 copies and is currently being translated into Korean.
