Kathy Schwerin began her Buddhist practice on an extended trip to Asia in 1986-87. Never tiring of Buddha images and wanting to have the friendly ease embodied by the Buddhists she met, she was further inspired by a man who was learning meditation so that he could be a wise old man. Returning home, she read Being Peace, by Thich Nhat Hanh, which showed her the path of inner peace is not separate from peace in the world. In 2003, Kathy completed the Community Dharma Leader Program at Spirit Rock Meditation Center. She went on to be a co-founder and Community Dharma Leader of Dharma Zephyr Insight Meditation Community, as well as a psychotherapist in private practice (currently not accepting new clients). She is a licensed minister in Nevada and blogs at AMindfulBreath.com .
