BOOKSMITH: Yung Pueblo / Inward
October 3, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm$18.50
Booksmith hosts a special evening with Yung Pueblo, to celebrate his first book Inward. Please join us!
Please note: this is a ticketed event, to be held at Booksmith, 1644 Haight St. in San Francisco. The price of admission is equal to the cost of Inward, which is included with each ticket.
From poet, meditator, and speaker Yung Pueblo comes the revised and expanded edition of Inward, a collection of poetry and prose that explores the movement from self-love to unconditional love, the power of letting go, and the wisdom that comes when we truly try to know ourselves.
With an emphasis on mindfulness and meditative healing, Inward is a narrative of Yung Pueblos personal journey, but it also implores the reader to self-reflect and take steps toward finding their own inner peace. The collection is divided into five chapters — distance, union, interlude, self-love, and understanding — and in them, Pueblo carries the reader through the different phases of the healing process, sharing his own unique perspective.
In an eloquent display of insight and vulnerability, Inward serves as a reminder to readers that healing, transformation, and freedom truly are possible.
Diego Perez is the writer behind the pen name Yung Pueblo. The name Yung Pueblo translates to young people, and it serves to remind Perez of his Ecuadorian roots, his experiences in activism, and that the collective of humanity is in the midst of important growth. His favorite word, liberation, took on a deeper meaning once he started meditating Vipassana, as taught by S.N. Goenka. Through writing and speaking, Perez aims to support the healing of the individual, realizing that when we release our personal burdens, we contribute to a global peace.
