Check Out bassist Miguel Chen’s Book “I Wanna Be Well: How A Punk Found Peace And You Can Too” Tome via Wisdom Publications

Miguel Chen has been adventuring all his life. At the age of three, he moved from his birthplace of Mexico City to the state of Wyoming, where he currently resides. Between touring and playing bass with his band, the unstoppable Teenage Bottlerocket (Fat Wreck Chords), and journeying to master his yoga practice, Miguel has visited five continents and forty countries. When he is not on the road, he teaches at self-owned Blossom Yoga in Laramie and Cheyenne. He most recently returned from Rishikesh, India after studying Hatha and Ashtanga yoga at Shiva Yoga Peeth. Miguel is also the author of I Want to Be Well: How a Punk Found Peace and You Can Too (Wisdom Publications), which combines his passion of music, yoga, and spirituality.

As a teacher, Miguel creates space for a light-hearted, yet down to earth approach to spiritual practice. In his spare time Miguel writes articles about music, life and spirituality and has contributed to publications such as The Shambhala Sun, Lion’s Roar, Alternative Press and New Noise Magazine. Miguel received his Bachelor’s Degree in Business Administration from the University of Wyoming in 2009 and hopes one day to actually use it for something. Seriously, anything.

What others are saying about ‘I Wanna Be Well’:

“A self-help book for anyone who just needs to cut through the crap of everyday life and find some peace and acceptance in a world of chaos.” (Jim Lindberg, lead singer of Pennywise and author of Punk Rock Dad)

“Miguel demonstrates a tangible spiritual practice grounded in reality that is available anywhere, anytime—and Miguel lets us know that we too can be well.” (Sharon Salzberg, author of Real Love)

“Much in the spirit of Dharma Punx, Get In The Van, or even Please Kill Me, Miguel Chen has done something important with this book. And I’m gonna stop feeling self-conscious about listening to DRI while doing yoga.” (Zach Blair, guitarist for Rise Against)

“Miguel Chen’s I Wanna Be Well is an honest and thoughtful approach to mindfulness. The book is full of insight and succinct ideas for anyone looking to expand their viewpoint and live well. A comfortable and fun read for intellectual and pinhead punks alike.” (Trever Keith, singer for Face To Face)

“[An] inspiring memoir…there are important lessons to be gained from Chen’s experience. Those who find Noah Levine’s punk rock approach to East Asian practices valuable will be comfortable here.’’ (Publisher’s Weekly)

“At the risk of sounding trite or too over the top, this book changed me. […] Somehow, Chen intersperses his knowledge and practices of yoga and Buddhism into the text with such ease, you almost don’t even realize it until you’re on the floor in child’s pose.” (Kendra Sheetz, The Bad Copy)
