"With harrowing vulnerability and badass candor, Jen Pastiloff has written a gritty and passionate memoir."

– Elizabeth Gilbert, New York Times bestselling author of Eat, Pray, Love, City  of Girls,  and The Signature of All Things

– Cheryl Strayed, New York Times bestselling of Wild, Tiny Beautiful Things, Brave Enough and Torch, a Novel


"On Being Human is heartbreaking and triumphant. And it has plenty to teach us about listening, forgiving, and ultimately, finding peace." 

“In On Being Human, Jennifer Pastiloff shares the story of how she left her 13-year waitressing job to become a yoga teacher, despite her fears about her inexperience. These days, she's a widely-regarded and beloved speaker, and in her memoir, she tracks her inspirational journey from a life of depression, anxiety, and hopelessness to one of contentment, gratitude, and bravery.”
