None of the meanings I had assigned to my life made sense anymore. I became deeply depressed. I had a small child. I was a single mother. I could not afford to go down. I began intensive therapy and I found a teacher -- a Tibetan Buddhist teacher -- and began what has grown into a 20-year consistent, daily meditation practice.
