Pillars of service



We believe that the only thing that makes a space sacred is presence. Through presence and attention to beauty we create ceremony, sound baths, events, healing sessions and immersive installations. We aim to build a temple of safety and beauty around a practice of care. 



Our ceremonies bring your community together to bond. Whether through the transcendental journey of a sonic journey or the intentional rite of passage gathering upon an occassion, we are dedicated to creating more opportunities for community to understand and celebrate one another in authenticity and love.  "Community means the strength that joins our strength to do the work that needs to be done. Arms to hold us when we falter. A circle of healing. A circle of friends. Someplace we can be free." Starhawk



We create safe spaces so that you can ease into deep presence. Through body work, sound healing and ceremony we offer opportunities for the body to disarm and regenerate. 

"May this work reach the seekers who are looking for a deeper perspective of a common denominator in the healing art, to push it along in keeping with all the atomic discoveries of today. The health and well-being of the people should not be neglected. It should really be the first concern of the scientists, doctors and educators. Without health and happiness, all our modern conveniences are of little comfort to us." Dr. Stone

Pilots Athena Barat & Charles Day Halsey


  • The Spa Ship is a vessel of sacred sound piloted by partners Athena Barat and Charles Day Halsey of Brooklyn, NYC. Charles began his spiritual search at Sivananda Ashram 13 years ago and has been studying and teaching yoga ever since. A self taught musician he has played in numerous rock and roll bands and is recorded on multiple albums. Charles has worked for many years in the film industry both behind and in front of the camera. Athena's parents met at the Siddha Yoga Ashram and she grew up on a path of Shakti. She has an honor's degree from Rutgers University in American Studies, studied literature in France at the University Francois Rabelais, and participated in a master's program for Sociology and Media at the New School.  Athena is an artist, curator, poet and educator and served for over a decade in the non-profit sector building the "Creation Nation" a program that unites and elevates underserved children through collaborative public art and artist-led education in Newark, NJ.   Charles and Athena met around the sacred fire at a sweat lodge 5 years ago and consider themselves to be students together in life's great mystery school. They live together in Greenpoint, Brooklyn and land the Spa Ship often in various locations throughout the city and surrounding areas. 


Spa is source. Built upon hot springs, ancient spas began as temples to the goddess, in honor of the miracle of water, the source of all life. The journey of The Spa Ship is a journey to source through steadfast presence.
