Welcome Home

THE SETH HOUSE is the apartment building in Elmira, New York where Jane Roberts & Robert Butts lived from 1960-1975. This is the place where Jane channeled an entity named Seth. Seth’s teachings are profound, transformational and life changing.

Together they wrote 45 books, which have sold nearly 8 million copies, and have been translated into over 20 languages. All of their books are still in print and their popularity continues to grow worldwide.

We are happy to announce that efforts are underway to acquire this old building, restore it, and open it up as a public place for all to enjoy. The work of this 501(c)(3) Non-Profit Organization is ambitious and right on time. Creating a legal structure such as this will help protect the building well into the future, and formally acknowledge the amazing events that took place within these walls.

A major event happened here, not so long ago, and it’s time we honor and preserve this place while we still can. The intention is for the building to be made open to the public for spiritual, educational and research purposes. It’s the perfect place to bring people together to joyfully study the material, and to help other Seth inspired groups and individuals around the world make important connections with each other.

We welcome all Seth readers and friends to be part of this adventure.
Bring your creative ideas, join our efforts, and share this vision.


Jane channeling Seth
Who is Seth?

Seth was and is a non-physical entity who shared wisdom and knowledge about the greater reality of which we are all a part. He was compassionate and cared deeply about the human condition. He spoke to assist us in co-creating a better earthly experience for all. His vision is very much alive and his words have so much to teach us today.

It is Seth who coined the term: “You Create Your Own Reality.”

He offered thoughtful guidance for personal healing, spiritual development, and limitless creativity. He gave us useful instructions and maps for the exploration of consciousness, which we are all free to embark upon at anytime.

All of the books are still in print and you can readily find “Seth Speaks” and “The Nature of Personal Reality” at most major bookstores. Seth readers gather in homes around the world for private Seth Discussion Groups to study the information. Seth’s online presence is vast, with many websites and social media sites promoting Seth’s ideas. There have been Seth conferences worldwide and magazines dedicated to this body of work.

This information continues to inspire, empower, and add to the well-being of individuals all over the world, and the collective development of humanity’s consciousness. Seth’s influence has had a profound and positive effect on the fields of spirituality, human potential, consciousness studies, scientific inquiry, historical revisionism, psychic awareness, and philosophical discourse for over 50 years.


Who are Jane & Rob?

It’s simply amazing what two people can do… especially with a little help from an invisible friend.

Jane Roberts Robert Butts
Jane and Rob’s wedding day, 1954.

Jane Roberts (1929-1984) was born in Albany, New York. She grew up in Saratoga Springs, New York. Her husband Robert Butts (1919-2008) was born in Sayre, Pennsylvania.

They lived at 458 West Water Street, Elmira, New York for 15 years from 1960-1975. Jane and Rob met Seth in 1963 through communications via a Ouija Board. Jane began channeling Seth shortly thereafter. While Jane channeled, Rob took meticulous notes and transcribed the nearly 1,800 sessions that Seth delivered.

For 20 years they worked as a team bringing forth some of the most remarkable information ever produced. Twelve of those years were spent right here at the Water Street House, where the majority of their books were written.


Bestselling Authors

Their most popular works and notable bestsellers were created at “The Seth House” from 1963-1975, including:

  • Seth Speaks
  • The Nature of Personal Reality
  • The Unknown Reality (Volumes 1 & 2)
  • The Early Sessions (9 Volume Set)

Jane’s books include: The Seth Material, The Education of Oversoul Seven, Adventures in Consciousness, and more.

Again, 45 books emerged from this unique collaboration… Nearly 8 million copies have been sold… They have been translated into over 20 languages… All of the books are still in print… Elmira should be talking about this… 😉

Restoring & Opening the House for
Public Enjoyment, Education & Inspiration

These 2 photos show how “The Seth House” looked in its prime (left), and how it looks today (right).

Our goal is to post new photos later in 2020 of a beautifully restored building that will be open to Seth readers and friends from around the world to visit and enjoy. Let’s formally honor the amazing experiences that occurred here which brought us such a great wealth of breakthrough information.


Most of All … This is a Special Place for All of Us

Bringing us together is what this is all about. We’re creating a true Community Center, a meeting place to discuss this meaningful information. This is a place of quiet contemplation, as well as lively conversations and good hearty laughter. This is a place for personal healing, and awakening a sense of true spiritual connection.

Join us.
The fun has just begun!

This website is full of information about Seth and our exciting plans for this place. Please feel free to contact us with any questions you may have. We invite you to join us in our work to create this amazing new Open Center for inquiry into the nature of reality itself and creating a joyful life.
