Sanctuary of St. Dymphna created

Pani Magdalena Gdanska reports on a new Yahoo group, the Sanctuary of St Dymphna, which was created for SCA members dealing with mental/emotional/neurological disorders.

I am Pani Magdalena Gdanska. I reside in the shire of Blak Rose in the East Kingdom (southcentral Pennsylvania).

I am writing to tell you about a new Yahoo group open to all gentles in the SCA, no matter what shire or kingdom they call home. It is the Sanctuary of St Dymphna. The web address can be found at the end of this email. I started this group because I saw a need for those touched by mental/emotional/neurological disorders. My vision for this group is a place for us to meet and support each other, with safety from judgment or lack of understanding so that we can better enjoy our participation in the activities of the SCA. I have received guidance and support from Mistress Alayne Nightwatcher, OP, the Accessibility Porter for the East Kingdom in this endeavor. Her contact information is:

Please make this information available throughout your kingdom as you see fit.  If you have any questions, please contact either myself or Mistress Alayne.

I thank you for your time.

Yours in Service,

Pani Magdalena Gdanska

New SCA group‎


Here is the address for the group. Please pass this on to anyone you know who might benefit from the group. I am always looking for suggestions from people on how to make the SCA a better experience for those with accessibility issues. Not all accessibility issues are physical and easy to see.

In Service to the Dream for All,

Pani Magdalena


And thank you so very much to the person who posted this info to the list.
