Who We Are
How We Started
In the 1970's, Dr Anton Rupert said that we as South Africans will have to show the world how diverse communities are able to live together in Harmonie.
A section on the La Motte farm became available for the in Harmonie dream. Hanneli Rupert-Koegelenberg stood on the site of in Harmonie and dreamt about a place of prayer.
The vision of rest, restoration and reconciliation was born.
The official opening of in Harmonie.
in Harmonie received the in Harmonie Journey based on Romans 8 as a gift to assist individuals, groups and organisations to shift from disharmony to harmony.
Our work is rooted and informed by multiple expressions of the Christian faith. We seek to honour the individual’s journey and respect our faith institutions. We create a space where Christ followers and others can rest, restore and reconcile.
We are particularly adept at hosting and helping multi-party groups navigate change and courageous conversations.
We foster a harmonious and hope-bearing community by facilitating, training, coaching and supporting individuals and organisations on their formation journey towards rest, restoration and reconciliation.
We are rooted in South Africa and also work in partnership elsewhere.
