Publisher Description

#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • “An empathetic and wise book that will guide you on a journey toward a deeper understanding of self.”—Nedra Glover Tawwab, LCSW, New York Times bestselling author of Set Boundaries, Find Peace
A radically compassionate plan for turning inward and lifting the heaviness that prevents us from healing ourselves and the world, from the New York Times bestselling author of Clarity & Connection

“During the years when I had abandoned myself, my mind felt undeniably heavy. I knew I needed to find a clear way to help me feel lighter.”
yung pueblo’s path to deep healing began only after years of drug abuse had taken a toll on his mind and body. Searching for a way forward, he found that by honestly examining and addressing the anxieties and fears that he had been running away from, he no longer felt like a stranger inside of his heart and mind. And once he dedicated himself to meditation and trusting his intuition, he started to finally feel mentally lighter, with more love emerging from within. This was not an easy journey, and it's one that he is still on, but it showed him that real healing is possible.

In Lighter, yung pueblo demonstrates how we can all move forward in our healing, from learning self-compassion to letting go to becoming emotionally mature. As the heaviness falls away, our minds will finally stop feeling overburdened with tension and we’ll be able to reconnect with the present. And the world around us will hopefully become more inviting in crisp and newly vibrant ways. But these are just the first steps. As we grow stronger and expand our self-awareness, it’s our responsibility—and also part of the healing journey—to take actions to support the health and harmony of all people. The final section of Lighter shows how we can and must contribute to building a world that is no longer structurally harmful but, instead, structurally compassionate. 

yung pueblo’s hope is that as more of us heal, our actions will become more intentional, our decisions will become more compassionate, our thinking will become clearer, and the future will become brighter.

Wonderful book….. audio needs improvement

I love this book, it’s a hard book, but a necessary book, but please don’t do the audiobook.

Yung, you need to work with a more experienced vocal producer.

First half is decent. Second half is mostly left wing talking points

The first half of the book was decent and talked about how to make changes in your own mentality. Though the language was fairly vague so I think it would’ve benefited with more details and concrete examples.

The second half of the book (especially the last 20% or so) was essentially pure rhetoric. I didn’t buy the book to hear about how the author wants to restructure society and repeat left wing taking points. I wanted tools to deal with mental tension, and the second half of the book had virtually zero connection to that. I disagree with a lot of the presumptions the author was making about how the world currently is and how it could be improved. In my opinion, if the author wanted to write about that, it should have been a completely separate book.
