Tiffany O'Donnell talks to Jennifer Pastiloff whose inspirational memoir, On Being Human, recounts how years of waitressing taught her to seek out unexpected beauty; how deafness taught her to listen fiercely; how being vulnerable allowed her to find love; and how imperfections can lead to a life full of wild happiness. Her workshop “On Being Human,” is a unique hybrid of yoga related movement, writing, sharing out loud, letting the snot fly, and the occasional dance party.
On today's episode, Jennifer talks about the importance of giving yourself a medal and how she always dreamed of coming to Iowa.
Trigger warning: This episode mentions topics of death, eating disorders and suicidal thoughts.
