Harmony is a new way of looking at our world and the Harmony Project explores principles of Harmony and how they can be applied in practice. The Project seeks to establish a deeper understanding of Harmony and a global community of Harmony Practitioners.
The Harmony Project is a collaborative project focused upon three main areas of work: Harmony in Food, Farming and Health; Harmony and Education; and Living in Harmony.
The Project was originally inspired by HRH, The Prince of Wales’s book Harmony: A New Way of Looking at Our World, which reminds us of some profoundly important truths, namely that everything in the universe is connected and balanced by universal laws and relationships, which express themselves everywhere and in all things, manifesting in the laws of physics, the solar system, in the shape and growth patterns of plants, in the beauty of nature, in music, in architecture and in food and farming.
We have created a new website for The Harmony Project, which contains a downloadable resources, articles, blogs and events information.
Food, Farming and Health
Harmony in Food and Farming seeks to demonstrate how and why we must put principles of Harmony into practice to accelerate the transition to sustainable food and farming systems that work with nature, rather than against it. Achieving this change will require a new approach which puts the observation of natural ecosystems at its core, developing a sense of connectedness with the environment and each other.
Within the past year The Harmony Project has had quite an impact, with the SFT’s highly successful Harmony in Food and Farming Conference held last June at Llandovery College in Wales, attended by over four hundred people from around the world. The conference touched on a multitude of themes beginning with the principles themselves and extending to the circular economy, the farm ecosystem, the integration of food production and nature conservation, the role of education, science and spirituality, harmony in farm architecture, and the role of faith communities in farming, to name but a few.
The SFT also hosted a Harmony session at the January 2018 Oxford Real Farming Conference, and held a harmony-inspired two-day event at Dumfries House in May.
In the meantime, we continue to work collaboratively with others across various fields of work to encourage the practice of harmony, with a particular focus on farming methods.
