     “In A Householder’s Vinaya, Allan Cooper describes in detail and depth guidelines for realizing our highest dharma aspirations. Going beyond conventional notions of daily life practice, Allan’s deep wisdom both challenges and inspires us to raise the bar of impeccability as we undertake the liberating teachings of the Buddha. In this unique work, there is a wealth of practical advice for transforming everyday life experiences into a genuine path of awakening. Highly recommended.”

The Voice of Home Practice

     The Voice of Home Practice is an online discussion board where people can ask questions, share their experiences, and discuss topics of mutual interest regarding meditation practice with an emphasis of meditation practice at home and in our everyday lives. This forum is intended  to create social connections and a sense of community that is otherwise difficult and/or impossible as a consequence of how most of us live and due to the impact of the pandemic. The site will be monitored by your host, Allan Cooper, and material or comments he believes are offered without wholesome intention will be either edited or deleted.
