CLARITY & CONNECTION de Yung Pueblo

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.

CLARITY & CONNECTION
by Yung Pueblo
Andrews McMeel, April 2021

Exploring the journey of personal transformation and the cultivation of healthy relationships, CLARITY & CONNECTION focuses on breaking from the past, embracing change, the importance of self-awareness, and the fact that our personal individual healing can help us build mutually fulfilling relationships. In characteristically spare, poetic style, Yung Pueblo describes how intense emotions accumulate in our subconscious and condition us to act and react in certain ways. CLARITY & CONNECTION will guide readers through the excavation of those emotions, allowing them the release of the past that will finally lead to growth.

Yung Pueblo is the penname of meditator, writer, and speaker Diego Perez. He 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. Online, he reaches over a million people through his written works that focus on the reality of self-healing, the movement from self-love to unconditional love, and the wisdom that comes when we truly work on knowing ourselves. 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.
