      Daylong Meditation Retreat with Doug Kraft

      This retreat, for new and experienced meditators, focuses on the earliest meditation instructions of the Buddha called "easing awake" through agenda-less, non-dual awareness. This practice works with loving kindness, joy, compassion and equanimity.

      Sifting through the earliest records of the Buddha's talks (as compared to later commentators), we find a simple, elegant, and powerful practice. When he died, his teaching became an "ism", Buddhism. As it spread into other countries, cultures, and eras his teachings or "map" was copied and re-copied. Shortcuts, bypasses, scenic tours, and alternate destinations were added and deleted. Compared to the versions of his teachings most widely known, his original meditation emphasized:

      **Tranquility: an open, receptive awareness favored over highly focused, one-pointed concentration
      **Simplicity: loving kindness, serenity and insight all tightly integrated rather than treated as separate practices
      **Stages: the practice matures through stages, each of which builds upon and goes beyond earlier stages (or "jhana")
      **Ease: relaxing as more important than striving
