My name is Wissam Barakeh, I am Syrian living in the UAE for the past 18 years. My initiative, House of Om Community Center (in Arabic translates to Life Harmony) is my own house, which I designed to be a lighthouse that enlightens people's minds and hearts.
The House Of Om Community has 3 goals: 1- Spread happiness and positivity through the harmony between the mind, body and soul. 2- Promote tolerance, forgiveness and understanding amongst different cultures and religions. 3- Raise the level of consciousness and knowledge in the society as well as the development of the latent energies within the individuals.
This happens through free activities and workshops conducted by selected specialist volunteers who believe in the goals of the community center and it's values.
The community center was born on the 5th of June 2016, since then, around 261 events took place at the house with the participation of nearly 10,441 participants .
The workshops include, different social and voluntary activities for children and the elderly, spiritual events like yoga and meditation, alternative medicine (music, energy therapy, Ayurvedic medicine), and many other trainings like First Aid, body movement, well-being, development of the subconscious mind (hypnosis) , awareness and knowledge, Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP), nutrition, astronomy, drawing, handcrafts, book club, spiritual cinema, Arabic language classes, and cooperation with special needs institutions and other community centers.
My bigger dream is to open similar community centers in every city across the world and to be able to reach people minds and hearts with love, with consciousness, and with honesty and dedication.

Testimonials - from the heart
Watch our students talk about their transformational experience in House Of Om
I'm so deeply grateful to House of Om and the teachers and organizers, Peewee, Manish, Wissam, and Anastasia. Thank you for providing such a beautiful space and ushering us through this experience. I feel much more comfortable and committed to my yoga and meditation practice as a result of this program, and feel comfortable teaching as well! As of writing this, I haven't even been back home for a month and have already taught 4 yoga classes with more on the horizon.
Thank you so much for everything.

"What you learned, felt and experienced, was outstanding and unforgettable"
It was a great time that leads to enormous spiritual growth. Wissam is a loving and warm-hearted person with a good character and a great personality. he taught us very much and because of his personality and open tolerant way, also the group of students got into a good connection from the heart which leads to a significant increase in not just learning about spirituality, but truly experiencing it and connecting our heart with other people.
Actually I didnt know if I would be on this trip as I was supposed to spend 10 days in Singapore from December 28th. Aigerin and I were looking for a place to spend NY eve in some bar or restaurant in Singapore, but instead we booked your retreat in Bali. I can say it was the best decision we took! This trip came just at the right time when I needed it in this period of my life. As of now I kiij at things which happened from much brighter perspective and thanks alot for you for that! What you are doing is really amazing and I know that it is really from your heart. I am very happy that House of Om exist in Dubai. You are the light and love, I and many other people are inspired by you! Thank you from my heart!
Thank you for bringing us here. You changed my live. Hope you all the best.
