2019 Donation Drive

It's time for our annual Server Donation Drive! We need to raise at least $650 (same as last year) to keep The Cauldron's server online for another year. Please help! Either hit that Paypal button to the right and make a one-time donation in any amount or set up a monthly Bronze, Silver or Gold Donor subscription. You can find more info in this message!

Donations as of 13 Sept 2019: $656 donated. $6 more our minimum goal! Let's beat last year's total of $99 more than the minimum!


Note: This total is updated manually, usually once a day


* "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.

Group Keeping
« on: July 16, 2011, 07:14:04 pm »
Hi,

I saw Nyktipolos' question in the Cill Schedule thread about what people do on a group keeping and I'm interested in this too. So, what do you do? Is a group keeping different to you from your normal shift? Why / why not? Is there anything you would like to see a part of group keeping (like a shared theme for meditation)?

The last group keeping, I treated like my normal shift, because I had too many outside obligations to be able to do anything extra special.  But I wouldn't mind participating in a themed meditation or something to give it a more connected and unified group feel!  I've been a practicing Solitary for so long that even participating in the shifts at all is a new experience for me.  A good one, obviously or I wouldn't still be here.
You can also find my ramblings at my blog although I\'m not the best at regular updates.  I\'m working on fixing that. Or look for me on FB here or Google+ here. :)

Heh. Beat me to it. :)

I honestly have no idea what I'll do during this upcoming group keeping shift. I'm starting to have less and less reasons to celebrate Celtic or Germanic festivals (so, Wheel of the Year festivals), or at least under those names. So Lammas and Lughnasadh are kind of out the door for me, because I have no desire to celebrate those festivals how they should be, or at least having the original intent behind them. The only festivals I really feel called to do are ones relating to the Gods I follow, and very few of them overlap with the typical eight. Soo.. internal conflict, I has it. :)

I thought that since the group keeping is coming up in a few days I'd bump this thread. Is anyone interested in a group theme for meditation? Any ideas for a theme?

I'm still up for a group thing.  I'm not as familiar with Lugh though...is there anything in the mythology of how He relates to Brighid or where there realms overlap....maybe over the blacksmiths hearth?
