Educator, Researcher, ScholarHow do we effect change and transformation for the highest good of all? 

Houman Z. Emami, a native of Iran (ancient Persia), has a bright academic career in Philosophy and Religion, Holism and Consciousness, with earlier careers in Computer Science, Telecommunications, and a number of educational-institute startups. He has completed undergraduate studies in the above fields, within and without standard academic training, while having completed his masters thesis  and considering a PhD research dissertation on the same subject: "The Heart Faculty, Intuition, and Theophanies: Philosophers who get out of their heads for love's sake." 

Before he was eleven years of age, Houman had lived through the Iranian revolution of 1979, the Iran and Iraq war of 1981, and witnessed the atrocities of war first-hand; while still living his ordinary life and experiencing the joys of childhood. A series of natural and spiritual awakenings began as a direct result of these earlier years of maturation and grew in proportion to his yearning. In this way, from the age of five he was confronted with the sharp contrasts that light and darkness presented, especially the lesser known miraculous aspects of life during such times of tragedy and trauma. Ultimately these aspects of light and darkness were resolved in finding the peace within, and the journey continues. 

Thereafter while living through several relocations and maturing in both eastern and western cultures before the age of thirty, Houman had taken part in a relatively successful lifestyle, returned to academia and various spiritual practices thrice, finally taking an early retirement from the tech industry in his late twenties, leaving it all behind and spending over a decade as an independent world-traveler, contemporary monk and spiritual pilgrim. These later awakenings in solitude and on the pilgrim's walk, integrated those of his early childhood. 

At last, returning to the worldly life in his late thirties, he continues to impact the world he left behind. Loved ones and relations lovingly refer to him as writer or educator, researcher-traveller-pilgrim, and scholar.
