Hajjar Gibran – Innovative Designer, Builder, Author and Spiritual Guide: Hajjar abandoned his career in engineering after the tragic death of his brother compelled him to follow his spiritual calling. After decades of inner exploration and personal transformation he created the Gibran Method for Spiritual Empowerment. In 2009, Simon and Schuster and a dozen other foreign publishers published his book The Return of The Prophet, the award winning sequel to The Prophet by his great uncle Kahlil Gibran. Hajjar then created The Gibran Center, a community health retreat in one of the poorest regions of rural Thailand. Adjacent to the center he started a volunteer run school to offer a better life to the local children who otherwise get caught in the sex industry. While creating The Gibran Center, Hajjar developed an efficient, low-cost, ecological way of building beautiful domes. A video and articles of a dome home he built with his brother-in-law have gone viral on the internet creating a global demand. In 2014 he created Global Dome Homes with a vision to support One Community and other sustainable development projects, as well as provide low cost housing for people in need the world over.
Here is an example of Hajjar’s work:
