Suzan Colón is the author of Cherries in Winter: My Family’s Recipe for Hope in Hard Times (Doubleday), Yoga Mind: Journey Beyond the Physical (Scribner), and other books. A former Senior Editor of O, the Oprah Magazine and a certified Yoga instructor, Suzan has made a few careers out of trying to live, if not her best life, then as best as she can.
A fretter by nature, Suzan found knitting to be a very effective form of stress reduction. She teaches MedKNITation, a system of meditation with knitting and crochet. She launched the Kindness Hearts Project, making and enlisting others to make tiny knit and crochet hearts with messages of kindness. In 2020, when lines for food banks were miles long, Suzan started #TenForTarot, doing 3-card tarot readings for $10 donations to Feeding America, the nation’s food bank.
When she’s not making hearts, throwing cards, or dropping stitches because she’s so Zenned out, Suzan is watching the latest superhero movie with her husband and two rescue cats. You can visit her on her website and on Instagram @suzanacolon and @medknitation.
