This year marked the 10th year since we opened CRS in 2004 to provide a place where people could offer and share healing and creativity. Lately, we have grown so busy, especially in the evenings and on the weekends, that we have had to turn away many wonderful classes, workshops and events. If only we had more space!
Well, after more than 15 years here, our wonderful upstairs neighbor whose work has graced many a museum exhibition, is moving on to a new home, and the floor directly above us was offered to us, just when we feel ready to take it on! We have already signed the lease and selected a design firm, CLOUDS Architecture Office, who just designed the unique and lovely new St. Mark’s Bookshop. Hopefully, work will begin in January and we will open sometime early next year. It is too soon to say exactly what we will be able to offer on the third floor, but we envision having a meditation/yoga studio somewhere in between the size of our current Healing Room and Studio, and possibly another counseling room (with a window). Through this expansion, we hope that we will be able to enable even more people with something to share to extend their love and creative gifts to the world, that we may all work more and more miracles together.
Our new three-year lease is substantially more expensive than our previous one, and almost triple what the rent was when we opened in 2004! We are confident that we are doing the right thing, but we are going to have to raise our rental rates to keep pace (class rates will stay the same). Starting January 1, 2015 our rental rates will be:
CRS RENTAL RATES FROM JAN 1, 2015
M – F
10 am – 6 pm
M – F
6 – 10 pm
Renters who fail to show up or who cancel less than 24 hours before the scheduled start of their rental will still be charged 50% of the rental fee, regardless of the reason.
If a renter’s client fails to show up but the renter occupies the room anyway, then the renter will still be charged the full amount of the rental.
A 50% non-refundable deposit is required:
to book any room 3+ hours in a day
to book space more than two months in advance (the deposit may be lowered for longer/larger bookings)
to book space outside of our normal operating hours
for parties, performances, or whole-floor rentals.
ONGOING WEEKLY RENTAL OPTIONS
CRS will in some cases rent out space at the same time/day every week on an ongoing basis with a month-to-month written rental agreement. The renter or CRS may break the agreement with no penalty with 30 days written notice. Ongoing renters who ask to cancel or re-schedule any dates/times with less than 30 days written notice will be charged a 50% cancellation fee for the time cancelled.
NOTE: CRS is closed on major holidays, and ongoing renters are not charged on these days.
