“When you free yourself, you change the world”- Yung Pueblo
In this episode I talk with Diego Perez aka Yung Pueblo. He is well known for his writings, poems and letters which he posts most notably to his Instagram. (Example below) Also known for meditating, Yung Pueblo practices Vipassana which involves taking a retreat and meditating for 10-11 hrs a day. In the beginning of this episode we discuss a little bit of meditation/ mindfulness and how it can help free yourself. We also delve into human habit vs human nature, the meaning behind “Yung Pueblo”, losing the ego, the power of love and tons more!
Diego and I connected for this podcast through Instagram. I discuss a little bit of the backstory in the beginning of the episode, but essentially it goes like this. I followed Diego once I first started my podcast. I saw some of his posts and writings and thought “This dude is legit”. I always thought he would be an awesome guest for the podcast but at the time never really knew how it would happen. Recently I reached out to him because I saw he had a book coming out and I really wanted to hear his story. And here it is Episode 22.
Check out his dope writings and wisdom on his Instagram and Facebook. Also, buy his new book “Inward” on Amazon.
