Author(s): Jennifer Pastiloff
In telling her life story, Jen Pastiloff takes her readers on the same journey that students in her On Being Human workshops embark on: a raw and beautiful adventure of self-acceptance, a masterclass on letting love in and learning to say no to their inner asshole, an invitation to dig deep and to listen hard. When Jen left her thirteen-year waitressing job and said yes to leading her first yoga workshop, she could never have foreseen that she was starting a practice that would transform her life, and allow her to help so many others. With arresting candor, Jen explains how she learned to listen fiercely despite being nearly deaf, to banish shame attached to a body mass index, and to rebuild a family after the debilitating loss of her father when she was eight. In revealing what she's learned from making her way back to truth after finding herself so far from it, Jen invites her readers to give themselves over to the power of all the love she has experienced and, in doing so, grow and learn alongside her.
