Jen Pastiloff is an author, public speaker, coach and creator of the Shame Loss movement and course. She is the best-selling author of On Being Human. Before the global pandemic, she traveled the world with her workshop of the same name: a unique hybrid of yoga related movement, writing, sharing out loud, letting the snot fly, and the occasional dance party.  Jen now also runs her On Being Human retreats virtually, as well as in person.

Cheryl Strayed, author of Wild, calls Pastiloff a conduit of awakenings and Kiese Laymon calls her a heart magician.

She was on the cover of YOGA JOURNAL magazine with Elizabeth Gilbert for their Creativity Issue and has been featured on Good Morning America as well as in People Magazine, Shape Magazine, New York Magazine, Health Magazine, and more for her distinct style of teaching, which she has taught to thousands of women in sold-out workshop all over the world.

Jen is the founder of the literary website The Manifest-Station (with editor Angela Giles.)
