Traditionally, Vipassana was taught in retreats lasting seven weeks. With the dawning of the 20th century, the teachers of this tradition began to experiment with shorter times to suit the quickening pace of life. They tried thirty days, two weeks, ten days, down to seven days--and they found that less than ten days is not enough time for the mind to settle down and work deeply with the mind-body phenomenon.

Hurd then went on to study at the University of California at Berkeley and the California College of Arts and Crafts, receiving his BFA in 1972. Working as a builder, designer, and cabinetmaker after graduation, Hurd set his sights on being a “serious” artist. Still lifes, landscapes, and figure drawing held little magic for him, however, and soon he gave in and began writing and illustrating his own picture books.
