Sacred space is the plane of existence of the native religions of Rathillien, such as the Merikit religion. Jame first finds herself there in Seeker's Mask, during the Merikit rituals in which she becomes the Earth Wife's Favorite. In it, distances seem vast yet at the same time are much more attainable than in the physical world. Jame theorizes that sacred space is Rathillien's soulscape; certainly, from there it seems only a small further hop to the Kencyr soulscape.

The Earth Wife's house appears to exist in sacred space and can open doors into the normal plane of existence seemingly as needed.

This has been a weird week, mostly connected to Trump.  First the news story came out about his tax returns.  Then there was the "debate" with Biden, which gave me a roaring headache.  Then Trump came...
