Joseph Emmett, director

Joseph has been a student of Swami Parthasarathy since 1996, and is a graduate of Swamiji’s full-time, three-year residential course at Vedanta Academy. He has spent a decade beyond that in India, at the ashram, deepening his knowledge.

As Director of Vedanta Institute Houston, Joseph leads weekly study groups for the local community.  He offers Beyond Business seminars for management teams and leadership groups such as Young President’s Organization and speaks at cultural organizations, universities and schools, most recently at Asia Society Texas and for a semester at Pomona College near Los Angeles. He has been the Vedanta faculty-in-residence at Ananda-In the Himalayas, and Calamigos Guest Ranch in Malibu.

Joseph employs Swamiji’s groundbreaking interpretation of Vedanta’s ancient wisdom for modern living in all of his programs.
