Embrace the Inner Journey

From the celebrated author of Inward comes Clarity & Connection ($16.99, April 2021) by Yung Pueblo, a new collection of poetry and short prose focused on understanding how past wounds impact our present relationships.

In his latest work, Yung Pueblo describes how intense emotions accumulate in the subconscious and condition individuals to act and react in certain ways. This second collection of poems and short essays centers on healing within the context of relationships—a powerful topic especially pertinent to readers navigating dating, marriage, and divorce.

Yung Pueblo speaks to a large audience of readers who are interested in poetry, wellness, mindfulness, and meditation. Using his characteristically spare poetic style, he guides readers through the excavation and release of the past that is required for growth.

About the Author

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. The penname Yung Pueblo means “young people” and is meant to convey that humanity is entering an era of remarkable growth and healing, when many will expand their self-awareness and release old burdens. 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.
