“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.” —Joseph Goldstein

A Householder’s Vinaya invites and instructs the meditator to use the comings and goings of everyday life as one of the foundations of one’s home practice; to recondition the mind away from the habit of turning away from our meditation while navigating our everyday lives. Instead this book, shows readers how to embrace it all as practice.

This program will be recorded and made available for on-demand viewing after the live session. On-demand videos will be available for 90-days following the live event.
