Summary

I speak with comic book artist and author Yumi Sakugawa. Yumi’s book, Your Illustrated Guide to Becoming One With The Universe is a gem and has made it onto a couple of my book recommendation lists.

It’s also an idea that isn’t talked about nearly enough in the world of self-development. I’d like to change that.
