"I closed my eyes to look inward and found a universe waiting to be explored."
From Poet, Meditator, and Speaker Yung Pueblo, comes a collection of poetry and prose that explores the movement from self-love to unconditional love, the power of letting go, and the wisdom that comes when we truly try to know ourselves. It serves as a reminder to the reader that healing, transformation, and freedom are possible.
Diego Perez is the writer behind the pen name Yung Pueblo. The name Yung Pueblo means “young people.” it serves to remind him of his Ecuadorian roots, his experiences in activism, and that the collective humanity is in the midst of important growth. His favorite word, liberation, took on a deeper meaning once he started meditating vipassana, as taught by S.N. Goenka. Through writing and speaking, he aims to support the healing of the individual, realizing that when we release our personal burdens, we contribute to a global peace.
