Eugene Cash's Dharma Talks at Spirit Rock Meditation Center
Eugene Cash
I am intrigued by how we can live the 'holy life' as lay people. How do we erase the imaginary line between formal sitting practice and the rest of our lives? How can we bring full engagement to formal and informal practice? Is it possible to embody, in our lives, the understanding and insight that comes with intensive training? And can we live our lives in a way that expresses and continues to deepen our realization? These questions fuel my practice and my teaching.

2020-03-11 Letting Go - Release - Freedom (Retreat at Spirit Rock) 60:35
Satipatthana - Four Foundations of Mindfulness offers us specific meditation practices with the body, breath, in four postures, in all activities, with the elements, with death, vedana, the heart/mind and the dharmas including hindrances and the seven factors of awakenings. Each of these practices includes a through line: One abides independent, not clinging to anything in the world. The not clinging to body, heart, mind or any experience is both the foundation of the Buddha's teaching and the doorway to freedom. It's the experience of coming into alignment with ' he way things are.'

2020-03-03 Embodied Awareness: Postures and All Activities (Retreat at Spirit Rock) 54:18
We explored how to practice with an embodied awareness 24/7. Practice using a full awareness that allows us to be mindful through the knowing our body experientially veiled of thoughts, ideas and commentary. This direct knowing is proprioceptive, kinesthetic, often referred to as felt sense knowing.
