01 - present COMMUNITY

Rituals are always centered around live sound experiences, planned for an intention or micro community. Find calm at The House and connect in a group setting, free of phones and city distractions.

02 - 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.

03 - always tea

A casual + curated tea experience is paired post Ritual for a complete well-rounded, perfectly executed reset, helping you to ground before heading back to your day. Our teas are rotating, selected and supplied by our friend + neighbor, industry tea expert Sebastian Beckwith.

good to know


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.

getting there

We are open only to registered individuals, and not walk-ins. When you book a Ritual, you'll receive an email with a GATE CODE to access The House. There is a black keypad on our gate which will illuminate when touched.

Kindly note, the GATE CODE is only active 15 minutes prior to your booking.

arrive early

It’s good to arrive 10-15 minutes before your Ritual. After entering through the gate, continue straight to the rear of the House to enter. The front door is locked.


No, you can't use your phone here.

Once entering, phones must be switched OFF. Our House concierge will help you secure your switched OFF phone in a locked pouch, which you'll have possession of during your visit.

Smart watch notifications and screens must be switched OFF.

Personal Items

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

Always Tea

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.


All individuals at The House must be over the age of 18, unless accompanied by a parent or adult.

Cancellation, no-show, + late policy

Cancel 12 hours before your Ritual for a full refund. Email us at or text The House at 212-933-0825 to cancel.

No-shows will lose their credit.

To not disturb others mid-meditation, arrivals more than 5 minutes late will not be admitted inside The House.

Arrivals more than 5 minutes late will be considered a no-show.


Though the House is quite old, our main space and restroom are accessible. Chairs are available in lieu of floor mats for a seated meditation. For guests with questions or special access requirements, please contact us at ahead of your visit.


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 (and even internal) differences.

we are not a spa or gym

We do not offer spa services, beauty treatments, therapies, showers, saunas, or lockers.

Rituals may occasionally include light movement, at the discretion of the practitioner. All fitness levels and body types are welcome.
