Yes, it's a house. Yes, it's in the middle of Manhattan. Yes it looks fake, like a movie set. No, we didn't build it.
Our space, which we call 'The House', is a wood-sided, approximately 200 year old structure tucked away from the street in Chelsea/Union Square.
The moment you enter off the street, your shoulders drop as you walk into our courtyard, shedding the chaos of the city behind you.
To be at a gathering at The House is truly special, away from the noise of the city in a space charged with Reiki energy, surrounded by attuned instruments, and with our deep and intentional community.
