Who We Are
The Harmony Project was founded by interfaith minister Ann Emerson formally from Monroe, Connecticut. We are a United Religions Initiative Cooperation Circle that meets bimonthy to discuss our work.
About the Founder
Rev. Ann Emerson is the current director of the Sanctuary of Sophia, a peace, justice, and healing center in Lake Mary, Florida. A spry, witty and energetic 78 year-old mother of five, and grandmother of ten, Ann has pursued a lifelong study combining community, family and spiritual paths. Her family spans four religious traditions: Protestant, Eastern philosophies, Jewish and Roman Catholic. As an Interfaith Minister, in addition to her family responsibilities, over the last 27 years Ann has directed or co-directed five different holistic growth centers and has done healing work in a variety of environments including psychiatric hospitals and maximum security prisons.
