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.

Exploring the paradox of aging and dharma practice. Through dharma practice we discover the possibility of maturing as a human at ages 50 and older.

Upekkha is the wisdom of the heart. It reveals a balanced, equipoise of heart and mind that is woven with love, compassion and joy. Often confused with detachment equanimity is a heart/mind resting in the wisdom of reality and awareness. It is the balance of heart/mind rooted in insight.

Practice reveals the Spontaneous Heart of Reality inherent in each human being. Becoming intimately aware of each moment of experience reveals the phantasmagorical reality available here and now. Know reveals not knowing. The Universal is revealed through the Personal. As the hardening of Heart relaxes the Dharma displays itself.
