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.

our space, the house

escape nyc without leaving Her

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.
