UPCOMING SESSIONS

OUR purpose

Official Ritual is a space that fosters community through shared wellbeing experiences, with daily sessions created to reset your nervous system + align your spirit.

SESSION types

Sessions at Official Ritual combine modern methods backed by scientific research from the NIH with ancient instruments and healing techniques.

Dropping-in to a session is the easiest way to meditate and reset, requiring minimal effort and no experience.

DAILY

HOUSE RITUALS

House Rituals are daily, regularly scheduled sessions that reset the nervous system, led by our house practitioner team.

WEEKLY

WORKSHOPS

Workshops are special gatherings, themed with a specific focus for a deeper release. We host 2-3 unique workshops per week with visiting and guest practitioners.

official method

PHYSICAL sound

Frequencies, tones, and vibrations are experienced live from instruments like gongs, singing bowls, and tuning forks. This resets the nervous system, promoting brainwaves to Theta, helping you reach NSDR or non-sleep deep rest.

your COMMUNITY

The House has become a hub for grounded conversation, healing, and wonderful people. Find your calm at The House and connect with new friends in an introvert-friendly group setting, free of phones and city distractions.

our home

Tucked away from sight off of 17th street, our space is a wood-sided cottage from the mid 1800s.

Our house isn't just a charming space - it's a reflection of who we are - grounded and down to earth - completely separated from the chaos of the city behind you.

To experience The House is truly special, away from the noise in a space charged with Reiki energy, surrounded by attuned instruments, and guided by our community of old soul healers and guides.

INFO + policies

book ONLINE, in advance

We cannot guarantee space for walk-ins.
Last minute decision? No problem - you can still check availability + sign up online right before a session.

Location

We're located at 112 West 17th Street in Chelsea, Manhattan. Our space is tucked away and easy to miss. Look for black gate marked "The House" on the downtown side of 17th street, directly across from West Elm. After booking, you'll get an email and text with detailed instructions.

Our space is open only to registered individuals, and not walk-ins.

dress

While comfort is key, you can arrive exactly as you are - from work or before your evening plans. There is no need to wear anything special. We are a shoeless space so please plan accordingly. Socks or barefeet are your preference.

arrive early

We recommend you arrive 10-15 minutes before the start time of your session to get settled.

Phone-free

No, you can't use your phone here.

We'll help you secure your phone in a signal blocking locked pouch, which you'll keep possession of during your visit.

No phones, photos, video, or content creation is allowed in our space. This rule is in place to not disturb the experience of others.

Unlike other wellness spaces, you will never be filmed, photographed, or recorded (by the practitioner or other content creating attendees) during your journey of meditation and release - assuring your complete privacy during any vulnerable states.

The exception to this rule is for private bookings and special events where personal photos may be taken together as a group after any meditation or deep practice.

Personal Items

Personal items (including your locked phone) can remain with you during your visit. Shoes are not permitted in the main room.
We do not have lockers.

Tea, after

After the Ritual, you're invited to tea in the kitchen while you ground, come back to your body, and chat with new friends. Our teas are rotating, selected and supplied by our friend + neighbor, industry tea expert Sebastian Beckwith.

Inclusivity

We are a space for healing + community.

We believe that everyone deserves to reset + reconnect regardless of background, identity, ideals, expression, or perspective. The challenging work of being human is to see the light of good in our neighbors despite external differences.
