JENNIFER PASTILOFF

Jennifer Pastiloff’s, first book,On Being Human, is an inspirational memoir about how Jennifer’s years of waitressing taught her to seek out unexpected beauty, how deafness taught her to listen fiercely, how being vulnerable taught her to find love, and how imperfections can lead to a life full of wild happiness.

Centered around the touchstone stories Jennifer tells in her workshops, On Being Human is the story of how a starved person grew into the exuberant woman she was meant to be by battling the demons and winning.

Jennifer is the founder of an online magazine, The Manifest-Station, she is a frequent guest speaker, and leads annual retreats to Italy and France. Jen has been featured on Good Morning America, New York Magazine, Health Magazine, CBS News and more.

Tickets: $20 General Admission; $40 General admission and a copy of On Being Human
