"In the deepest crystal caves of my heart is a voice, a voice bejeweled with squiggly star shapes and amorphous beings, a strange voice that sings to me in the quietest of moments. Sometimes when that voice is missing, Your Illustrated Guide to Becoming One with the Universe takes its place. Yumi channels this voice effortlessly, and her illustrated guide has time and time again become my lullaby, my friend-love, and a sentient being dressed in the most effortless beeline black lines and jewels of wisdom. I LOVE THIS." --Shilo Shiv Suleman, visual artist and creator of The Fearless Collective
"I love this book. It's brief, beautiful, and bears some truths...that we are, in fact, a part of a much larger system of life. Yumi Sakugawa's art is actually meditative to look at. Pick it up, please, on a bad day or good." --Bust Magazine
"Your Illustrated Guide to Becoming One with the Universe overflows with helpful, simple (yet cosmic) wisdom rendered visual in...delicate and sequential pen drawings...that brought her previous book, I Think I Am in Friend-Love with You...such immediacy." --Austin Chronicle
"A beautifully illustrated comic.... Yumi Sakugawa has used her spare, sweet and lightly melancholic illustrations to address a number of uniquely contemporary phenomena....

"A beautiful, funny, and genuinely inspiring spiritual handbook for the Cosmos age you didn't know you were waiting for....

"Yumi Sakugawa takes you on a visual journey of self-discovery and connection with the universe." --Advocate.com
"A pretty, easy way into mindfulness. Sakugawa's inky illustrations are marvelously creative.... Sakugawa asks rhetorically, 'how can we possibly feel oneness with the universe if we aren't creating any space to really listen to what the universe is trying to tell us?' It's an important question, posed in truly beautiful way." - Good Magazine
"Yumi Sakugawa is...an imaginative messenger of simple clarity. That her art is so marvelously creative certainly makes her titles delightfully inviting.

If you are considering purchasing this book, you should. It may change how you see yourself and the world around you. Do consider purchasing one for a close friend or relative as well. Or maybe for someone who just needs a new outlook.
The best thing about this book is that I can pick it up anytime and be reinsured in a different way. The illustrations are thoughtful, unique and well-conceived.
