Sit with us in sacred silence to meditate, reflect or pray

If you desire, we’ll spend a few minutes listening to you tell us what brings you in.

…a place of quiet.

…a place of hospitality.

…a place of welcome.

Underhill House

We are not a church. Not a counseling center. Not a place to eat or sleep. Instead, Underhill House is a quiet place to pause for prayer or meditation, or simply to come out of the noise of life and gather one’s thoughts. We are a place where people from all walks of life can reconnect with themselves, each other, and the Holy.

In the city fields
Contemplating cherry-trees...
Strangers are like friends.


– Kobayashi Issa, Japanese Haiku

Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing and rightdoing, there is a field. I’ll meet you there. When the soul lies down in that grass, the world is too full to talk about… even the phrase “each other” doesn’t make any sense.


– Rumi, 13th century Sufi mystic

The fruit of silence is prayer;
the fruit of prayer is faith;
the fruit of faith is love;
the fruit of love is service;
the fruit of service is peace.


– Mother Teresa

Try to arrange things
so that you can have
a reasonable bit of quiet
every day.


– Evelyn Underhill

Be still and know that I am God.


– Psalm 46
