Welcome to Mindful by Design, an audio course all about mindfulness, meditation, evidence of how it all works and some guidance to make it work for you. Over five episodes and accompanying meditations, Rev angel Kyodo williams introduces core principles of the mindfulness practice through both science and lived experience.
Maintenance is as much art as it is science. In this final episode of Mindful by Design, Rev angel Kyodo williams is joined by writer, activist, and speaker, Yung Pueblo for an awakening conversation on the maintenance of the mindfulness practice. While the journey via this series concludes, hopefully with the foundations laid, your own journey in mindfulness continues to grow.
Diego Perez is a meditator, writer, and speaker who is widely known on Instagram and various social media networks through his pen name Yung Pueblo. Online he reaches hundreds of thousands of people every month 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 first book, Inward, was self-published and quickly became a bestseller on Amazon. A revised and expanded edition of Inward has recently been published and is now available in bookstores around the world.
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.
