I’m looking for a word (or literary/biblical reference) that means “a high place close to power and/or god.”
As in “the stage was her ___, where she felt as if she could conquer the world.”
Right now I’ve settled on “dominion,” but that doesn’t quite capture the spatial connotation I’m after. “High ground” is better on that front but lacks the immense power connotation I need.
I swear I’ve got one on the tip of my tongue, but I just can’t quite reach it.
