Welcome to Kathy Schwerin’s website about Therapy, Meditation and Life.
In 1986 I had a conversation that changed my life. I was in Asia and had become interested in Buddhism. I met a man who had been on his second month-long meditation retreat, and he planned to do another though he told me he had not enjoyed the first two. When I asked why, he said, “Because I want to be a wise old man, and I thought if I do what people I consider to be wise do, I might gain wisdom.”
Having struggled with depression most of my life, I was looking forward to sitting on a rocking chair, wiping my brow, and saying, “Whew, made it.” I never considered what kind of old woman I would be. That’s the day I began my meditation practice.
This site is an place to gather my stories, thoughts, photos, and lessons in twenty-five years of moving towards my wise old age. Welcome to my journey.
