In this week’s episode, meditator and speaker Diego Perez (aka Yung Pueblo) takes us on a fascinating journey to discover who we really are through the pursuit of self-healing and self-love. By utilizing various meditation and spiritual traditions used for years across the globe, we can tap into true physical and mental healing and realign with our most authentic selves at this moment in time. We also look at the importance of spending time in nature and the influence our environment has over how we feel each day. So if you’ve been feeling disconnected or just need to refocus on yourself, this episode is for you.

Diego Perez is a New York Times bestselling author as well as a meditator and speaker who is widely known on Instagram and various social media networks through his pen name Yung Pueblo. Online he has an audience of over a million people that he reaches 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. His two books, Inward and Clarity & Connection were both instant bestsellers.

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. Diego's practice of Vipassana meditation, as taught by S.N. Goenka, has given him a deeper understanding of liberation that inspires his writing. Through writing and speaking he aims to support the healing of the individual, knowing that when people release their personal burdens it helps humanity build a global peace.
