He has written six “Sharing Nature Books” that have been published in twenty foreign languages and have “sparked a worldwide revolution in nature education.” Millions of people have enjoyed his joyful and inspiring nature writings.

In 2002, Joseph created the Ananda Meditation website to help people learn meditation and receive ongoing support and inspiration for their practice. Thousands of new and experienced meditators from different religious traditions have benefited from this free service. Easily accessed on this website are over one hundred meditation articles; the Go Deeper Meditation Study Plan; and the monthly e-newsletter, The Daily Meditator.

Since 1975, Joseph has been a resident of Ananda Village, one of the most successful intentional communities in the world. The community is based on the universal principles of yoga meditation and service to God and humanity as taught by the revered world teacher Paramhansa Yogananda. Ananda Village was founded by Yogananda’s direct disciple J. Donald Walters (Swami Kriyananda), who is widely recognized as one of the foremost authorities on meditation.
