Diego Perez is known by millions as Yung Pueblo, a pen name that 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. His online presence and his books Inward and Clarity and Connection are meant to serve those undertaking their own journeys of personal transformation.
Diego 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.
Today, Diego resides in western Massachusetts with his wife, where they live quietly and meditate daily. Learn more at yungpueblo.com.
