Underhill House
“The peace, the presence, is everywhere — and your deliberate, humble practice of contemplation will teach you at last to find it. —Evelyn Underhill

Underhill House is a quiet space in inner-city Seattle where people can pause to pray or meditate. This opportunity to experience contemplative peace is available to all regardless of their personal situation, and their spiritual tradition or lack of one. We also offer active listening if someone needs it. Contemplative practice changes you. When you encounter the deeper reality beyond the material, you find a more grounded life, one that is less anxious, less grasping and, paradoxically, more productive. For many, this event is the beginning of, or a turning point in, their spiritual journey. This experience is accessible to anyone and most people don’t even know it — they think it’s for other people, or that it’s an illusion. Sharing it with people is a subversive act; it conflicts with many of the priorities our society promotes. (As Tricia Hersey says, “rest is radical.”) Underhill House holds a space for this to happen.”
