Seven Core Principles of Harmony in Nature

In our work at Harmony in Health we have adopted seven core principles outlined by Richard Dunne of the Harmony Project, inspired by HRH The Prince of Wales’ vision set out in his book ‘Harmony: A new way of looking at our world’.

Interdependence

The principle of Interdependence reveals that the elements within natural systems are wholly interconnected; each element has a value and a role to play.

The Cycle

Fields of Gold

The principle of the Cycle illustrates that Nature’s regenerative, cyclical systems are models of sustainability, reusing resources and eliminating waste.

Diversity

The principle of Diversity is expressed in natural systems which are healthy and resilient, and better able to adapt to change.

Adaptation

The principle of Adaptation shows that living things are always adapting to their place and to the ecosystems they are part of. This ensures each species is able to survive and thrive.

Health

The principle of Health demonstrates that the balance and well-being of natural systems is maintained by the dynamic relationships that exist within them.

Geometry

The principle of Geometry reveals that the patterns we see in Nature, in micro and macro form, also exist in us. Far from being separate from Nature, we are Nature.

Oneness

The principle of Oneness unites all these principles, revealing their interconnectedness and helping us to understand that – like all life on Earth – we are part of something greater than ourselves.
