Inner Sanctum

We can build it with your help


Inner Sanctum is coming...

Let's build it together.

Are you ready for another well equipped, beautiful San Francisco Bay Area community dungeon? Of course you are! Buckle your seat belt because beneath the floors of Black Thorn, Inner Sanctum is coming!

A new basement dungeon, bigger than Black Thorn, with high celings, sound glass windows, multiple entryways, and 1,500 sqft of open, usable space, Inner Sanctum will be beautiful, well equipped, and well appointed, offering more room for educational classes and community building events.

The construction has begun and is well underway. To see images and video of the construction, go to the Updates page. Currently the concrete crew is on site and on track to pour a new foundation and floor to ceiling concrete walls by mid September. All of the workers are actively managed and are following the proper protocol required by the state of California to protect against the spread of Covid-19 by wearing masks, frequent hand washing, and distancing.

How exciting it is to envision and create a beautiful, brand new play space! You know we can do it, because we already have. From The Looking Glass (retired) to Black Thorn to Sacred Muse, to The Attic, and now Inner Sanctum, we have and we will.

WHY are we building Inner Sanctum?

Community play spaces are important.

Community play spaces are important resources. They provide places of learning, a safe space for community building, a place to express ourselves in a non-judgmental, supportive environment; a place to make deep connections and break out of restrictive, social constructs.

Community play spaces allow us to be creative, to be scary, to be vulnerable, to confront our fear and discover our power; a place we where can learn from one another, celebrate diversity, and find common ground.

Community play spaces are where we can explore our imagination and enjoy playfulness! In doing so, we experience personal growth, empathy, boundary setting, and communication skills that enrich our lives and benefit the lives of others.

What is the Challenge?

Together we got this!

As we all know, building in the Bay Area is expensive, really expensive, and we are building Inner Sanctum from the ground up. It will feature floor to ceiling concrete for robust sound insulation, suspension points, mood lighting, a sound system, new plumbing, new electrical, an HVAC system, brand new play equipment, and much more!

Raising the money we need to complete this project is crucial. With your help, we can make it happen.

Past Challenges, Past Victories

Several years ago I was faced with a similar challenge, to either demolish the dilapidated, old carriage barn behind Black Thorn or repair and renovate the building. It was an ambitious construction project that took two years to complete.

That building is now Sacred Muse. It is a gorgeous, well-equipped play space that people have been enjoying ever since. A privately accessed upper floor was also constructed as a second dungeon called, The Attic.

Another big Thank You again to those whose contribution helped to build these popular community dungeons. We Did It! And we can do it again.
