On Being Human Workshop in Ojai, California.
June 16, 2018 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm
“Jen Pastiloff is the authentic voice women need right now. By challenging us to embrace our imperfections she teaches that ‘wellness’ is the process of letting go of ideas that don’t serve us— as well as a radical act of joy. The On Being Human workshop is a radical reset for anyone struggling to become herself.” –Lori Leibovich, Editor in Chief of Health Magazine
Join Jen Pastiloff, author of forthcoming On Being Human (Dutton 2019) in her signature workshop and see why she sells out every time! This isn’t your typical yoga workshop nor is it about the poses, although there will be some yoga sprinkled in here and there. It’s about being human. It’s about letting go of fear. It’s about connection and telling the truth. A yoga workshop that’s not just about yoga (and can sometimes be not about yoga at all). A writing workshop for struggling writers, to-be writers, and non-writers. A dance party and a sing along for dancers, singers, klutzes, tone-deaf, actual deaf, and hard of hearing singers. A trust and love circle. A place to make shit happen. A workshop for humans.
“What do you want to create? If I wasn’t afraid I would…? How may I serve others? Do I care too much about what people think? Who would I be if nobody told me who I was? What am I afraid of? What’s getting in my way and what can I do about it?” Questions like this and many more will be sought out and answered in this unique workshop which truly connects the mind and body. The workshop combines body movement and writing (and has been known to have a few dance parties and singing).
All levels welcome, no yoga experience required. Expect to flow, sweat, sing, write, dance and laugh and share out loud as you let go of what is no longer serving you.
PLEASE NOTE: There will be much laughter. Maybe a few tears. It’s been known to change lives. Bring an open heart. Expect to go beyond your comfort zone. Come see why Jen travels around the world with this workshop. Bring journal/open heart/sense of humor. This experience is about life: unpredictable, sometimes messy, beautiful, human.
