About Us

At Sacred Space NY we help New Yorker's unplug from the frenetic pace of the city and cultivate practices for inner peace. Our healers are a dedicated team who recognize the importance of integrating mind, body and spirit into the practice of everyday living. For the modern woman who embraces the power and beauty of spirit, Sacred Space NY practices enliven divine essence and inspire a way of living. For the male, our practices harmonize Yin/Yang balance and bring forth increased receptivity to one’s surroundings. 

Our Philosophy

Stress is so endemic in our urban culture that we are almost unaware of it. Our 24/7 plugged-in-ness is causing havoc on our natural ecosystems as human beings and having a debilitating effect on our wellbeing. Sherry Turkle, a Social Studies professor at MIT talks about us experiencing what she describes as ‘alone togetherness’ - that in spite of all of our interconnectivity, we’ve actually never been so far from Self.

Sacred Space NY offers you an invitation to tune inwards. Whether during a session in our healing pod or one of our hosted sessions with our wellness partners. Each experience is an opportunity for you to re-set and experience a new State of Grace. Our Reconnecting Rituals are designed to make it easy for you to heal, detox and recharge physically and mentally.

Sacred Space NY’s founding philosophy: ‘Stop the Tweet. Reconnect’ honors the practice of slowing down in NYC.

When we learn to slow down, one of the most beautiful side effects of this simply met intention is that we remember how to savor.

We learn to recognize the natural ebb and flow of life and are able to live with a greater degree of ease and comfort - no matter what circumstances are arising.      

To find stillness in the midst of the craziness. To find balance in the midst of chaos. This is Sacred Space NY.
