Our Name & Our Story
When deciding what to call our new company we focused on our mission: helping people reestablish the natural, healthful connection with the earth that humans have enjoyed since Day One.
Today, we call this reunion with Mother Earth grounding. In the past it was simply called living. Without artificial barriers – plastics, rubbers and other synthetics – insulating us from the natural energy constantly emanating from the earth, we received a continuous gift of buzzing electrons that worked to revitalize every cell in our bodies. Whether we were searching for a better cave, hunting, gathering, planting, or simply sitting on the earth around the community fire, our bodies were constantly being replenished. This is part of our design, as natural as breathing.
The word “Harmony” embraces the natural, unadulterated relationship between people and planet. It’s a reminder that we are as much a part of nature as plants and birds and flowers and streams. Being connected to nature is vital to our wellbeing, and we need to make sure that we don’t inadvertently introduce obstacles that interfere with this magnificent, healthy grand design.
The “783” part of our name is a tribute to the energy frequency that our earth hums along at and makes everything possible: 7.83 Hz. Science shows that our brains, along with every other cell in our bodies, operate at a more optimal state when in contact with this harmonic resonance. Earth scientists call this the Schumann Resonance. The omission of the decimal point simply makes the name, well, more name-like.
While there are many ways for people to reestablish this natural connection with the earth, HARMONY783 is focused on the simple, oh-so-human act of walking. Our comfortable, stylish shoes (because all shoes should deliver those basics) are purposefully engineered to facilitate the constant transfer of the earth’s revitalizing electrons into our bodies. So, when you slip on a pair of HARMONY783s you make yourself a little bit healthier with each & every step.
Simply put, HARMONY783 is walking the way it was meant to be.
HARMONY783 was inspired by a series of synchronistic events, among them, re-discoveries, by many highly regarded researchers and pioneers in the field of grounding. The first serendipitous encounter was leading to the creation of this new venture happened when Pam Bard visited a booth at a healthy aging conference in Las Vegas selling grounding footwear, called pluggz, created by Sharon Whiteley, which was sold in 2017. This event was the same conference where Sharon first learned about grounding a decade earlier, from Dr. Stephen Sinatra. A friendship between Pam and Sharon developed over the next year and they became enthusiastic about partnering on an expanded line of grounding footwear to also include more athletic styles. Their respective passion for grounding led them to co-found and create a new enterprise called HARMONY783 twelve months later.
Many pioneers set out to create a movement 20 years ago and they were inspirational to us. A great deal of their focus however is about going barefoot. Bare skin, or any body part touching the earth, is certainly a direct connection, however, this is not practical as a way of life in modern times. HARMONY783 shoes enable us to have this same feeling – and receive all the benefits - while walking outside when making direct contact with the ground.
