I was put onto this book by a leader I admire very much – Dr Mark Hyman, functional medicine Doctor, who I look forward to welcoming as a guest on the show in the coming weeks. I have listened to it twice now, and find when I am seeking a karma more peaceful mindset and a meditative state. Then it’s the ideal book to listen to.

His personal story is very powerful – one where he came from Ecuador to Boston in the United States and his family scrape bye with severe financial challenges, he slipped into a world of drugs to escape from facing his personal issues. Then he went on a 10 day silent, Vipassana meditation retreat. From that moment on and attending further retreats and learning about Buddhism, his whole philosophy of life changed for the better, I found his book very inspiring, and would one day like to have him as a guest.

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.
