* "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" Problem Logging In?

If you get an "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" error when you try to log in, you need to be sure you are accessing the board with a url that starts with "https://ecauldron.com".  If it starts with https://www.ecauldron.com" (or "http://www.ecauldron.com") you will get this error because "www.ecauldron.com" is not technically the same website as "ecauldron.com". Moving to the more secure "https" means it is more picky about such things.

Book recommendation about Brigid?
« on: April 08, 2018, 02:40:52 pm »
Hi dear Cauldronites,

I desperately need a birthday present for a friend. She loves Brigid and I've investigated which books she already has:

- Judy Harrow: Devoted to You
- Seán ó Duinn: The Rites of Brigid

Can anyone recommend an additional book?

My friend is neo druid, I think she would read historical accurate stuff as well as stuff from an UPG perspective or with practical stuff in it...

Does anyone have an idea what would be a good supplement to the books she already has?

From a more academic/devotional point of view, I'd suggest Brigid: Meeting the Celtic Goddess of Poetry, Forge, and Healing Well by Morgan Daimler. Another that provides a good devotional basis would be Tending Brigid's Flame: Awaken to the Celtic Goddess of Hearth, Temple, and Forge by Lunea Weatherstone.

Wow, that's a good reading list, the commentary is really useful.

Actually I'm thinking about the children's book "Brigid’s Cloak" by Bryce Milligan...because that's something she doesn't have and it looks so beautiful  ;D

I'm glad it's helpful!

I don't have the children's book. If you do get it for your friend, please let me know what you think.

I will, I've already ordered it. :) (I'm glad the paperback was easily available here, the hard cover is a different story.)

I also saw that there's a Brighid devotional book from TC -> something for my reading list.  :D

Thanks, that's great! I'll check it out later... :)

The children's book "Brigid’s Cloak" by Bryce Milligan has arrived. It's the Christian story with Brigid meeting Maria and Joseph. It's very beautifully illustrated and has wonderful imagery, f.ex. there's a druid giving Brigid a blue cloak when she was born, but the stars come later... It's really adorable (although with a Christian emphasis), but a book worth having! (And the donkey is cute.)

Thanks for the review! Sounds like one to add to my bookshelf.
