From the celebrated author of Inward comes a new collection of poetry and short prose focused on understanding how past wounds impact our present relationships.
In Clarity & Connection, Yung Pueblo describes how intense emotions accumulate in our subconscious and condition us to act and react in certain ways. In his characteristically spare, poetic style, he guides readers through the excavation and release of the past that is required for growth. A powerful resource for those invested in the work of personal transformation, building self-awareness, and deepening their connection with others.
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 of humanity is in the midst of important growth. his favorite word, liberation, took on a deeper meaning once he started meditating vipassana. through writing and speaking, he aims to support the healing of the individual, realizing that when we release our personal burdens, we contribute to global peace.
Diego Perez was born in Ecuador and immigrated to the United States as a child. He grew up in Boston and attended Wesleyan University. During a silent Vipassana meditation course in 2012, he saw that real healing and liberation were possible. He became more committed to his meditation practice while living in New York City. The results he witnessed firsthand moved him to describe his experiences in writing.
Diego’s online presence as Yung Pueblo, as well as his books, Inward and Clarity & Connection, are meant to serve those undertaking their own journey of personal transformation.
Today, Diego resides in Western Massachusetts with his wife, where they live quietly and meditate daily.
