Out of deep concern for our collective health – we have postponed SHE RECOVERS in MIAMI. Originally due to take place this May, the event will now take place April 30-May 2, 2021. Registration will re-open later this year.
SHE RECOVERS® is back with a third, ground-breaking, signature event, SHE RECOVERS in MIAMI! Building on the wildly successful SHE RECOVERS in NYC and SHE RECOVERS in LA, held in 2017 and 2018 respectively, this exciting event will gather and engage 600 women of all ages and backgrounds who are interested in exploring a wide range of recovery approaches centering on mind, body and spirit.
SHE RECOVERS in MIAMI will highlight and celebrate strength, diversity, inclusion, and innovation…by women for women. SHE RECOVERS in MIAMI will be every bit as spectacular as our first two conferences but with a fresh and fun twist. When surveyed after our last conference, our former guests told us they would prefer to do less sitting, have more time to connect with friends new and old, be given a little more down time to reflect and process, and enjoy more music! We listened.
We can’t wait to introduce you to the effortless beauty and sophistication of the Biltmore Hotel, a National Historic Landmark located in the exclusive neighborhood of Coral Gables with close proximity to Miami Beach and Downtown Miami. The entire weekend program will take place at the Biltmore.
Booking information is coming soon.
Pastiloff’s inspirational memoir, On Being Human: A Memoir of Waking Up, Living Real and Listening Hard, 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.
Centered on the touchstone stories told in her popular workshops, On Being Human is the story of how a starved person grew into the exuberant woman she was meant to be all along by battling the demons within and winning. Pastiloff did not intend to become a yoga teacher, but when she was given the opportunity to host her own retreats, she left her thirteen-year waitressing job and said “yes,” despite crippling fears of her inexperience and her own potential. After years of feeling depressed, anxious, and hopeless, in a life that seemed to have no escape, she healed her own heart by caring for others. She has learned to fiercely listen despite being nearly deaf, to banish shame attached to a body mass index, and to rebuild a family after the debilitating loss of her father when she was eight. Through her journey, Pastiloff conveys the experience most of us are missing in our lives: being heard and being told, “I got you.”
Pastiloff has created a massive online following from her personal essays and teachings. She is also the founder of the online magazine The Manifest-Station. Pastiloff leads annual retreats to Italy and France and is a regular guest speaker at Canyon Ranch and Miraval Resorts. She also leads Writing and The Body workshops with author Lidia Yuknavitch, offering scholarships through The Aleksander Fund to women who have lost a child.
When she is not traveling she is based in Los Angeles with her husband and son and a cup of coffee. She is also the creator of @nobullshitmotherhood and @gPowerYouAreEnough on Instagram.
Her motto to live by is “don’t be an asshole”. She evens owns the URL.

SHE RECOVERS FOUNDATION Awards Luncheon
A NIGHT OF WOMEN AND SONG
We know that women in recovery love listening to music – and that some of you also love making it. So naturally we had to launch our very own SHE RECOVERS MUSIC New Artist Search. On Saturday evening musical guest Daphne Willis and the three finalists from the New Artist Search will take the stage. We will be crowning the winner of the search that night! There will be dancing – both to live music and to a guest DJ.
For more info about our talent search visit the SHE RECOVERS MUSIC New Artist Search page.
