Let Go of the Past, Connect with the Present, and Expand the Future. 
Lighter is 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 yung pueblo.

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 stop feeling overburdened with tension, we’ll be able to reconnect with the present, and the world around us will become more inviting, crisp, and newly vibrant. But these are just the first steps. As we grow stronger and expand our self-awareness, it’s our responsibility—and 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 hopes that as more people heal themselves, our actions will become more intentional, our decisions will become more compassionate, our thinking will become more apparent, and the future will become brighter.
