Yung Pueblo books in order

Yung Pueblo is the pseudonym of Ecuadorian meditator and #1 New York Times bestselling author, Diego Perez.

His pen name, which means 'young people', is a reflection of his Ecuadorian heritage, as well as his involvement in activism, and his long standing belief in the ongoing development of humanity as a collective.

Keen about writing literature that is centered around the potency of self-healing, cultivating good relationships, and the profound enlightenment that comes with discovering ourselves, Diego made his writing debut with Inward (2017) and Clarity & Connection (2021); both of which were instant bestsellers.

His books have sold more than 1 million copies across the globe, and have been translated into more than 25 languages.

Clarity & Connection

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.

To be read on its own or as a complement to Inward, Yung Pueblo’s second work is a powerful resource for those invested in the work of personal transformation, building self-awareness, and deepening their connection with others.

Lighter: Let Go of the Past, Connect with the Present, and Expand the Future

“During the years when I had abandoned myself, my mind felt undeniably heavy. I knew I needed to find a clear way to help me feel lighter.” 

yung pueblo’s path to deep healing began only after years of drug abuse had taken a toll on his mind and body. Searching for a way forward, he found that by honestly examining and addressing the anxieties and fears that he had been running away from, he no longer felt like a stranger inside of his heart and mind. And once he dedicated himself to meditation and trusting his intuition, he started to finally feel mentally lighter, with more love emerging from within. This was not an easy journey, and it's one that he is still on, but it showed him that real healing is possible.

In Lighter, yung pueblo demonstrates how we can all move forward in our healing, from learning self-compassion to letting go to becoming emotionally mature. 

As the heaviness falls away, our minds will finally stop feeling overburdened with tension and we’ll be able to reconnect with the present. And the world around us will hopefully become more inviting in crisp and newly vibrant ways. But these are just the first steps. 

As we grow stronger and expand our self-awareness, it’s our responsibility—and also part of the healing journey—to take actions to support the health and harmony of all people. The final section of Lighter shows how we can and must contribute to building a world that is no longer structurally harmful but, instead, structurally compassionate.
