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 16 Sept 2019: $660 donated. $10 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.

You're Invited!
« on: December 09, 2017, 12:29:25 pm »
With the Cauldron's annual Up All Night: A Technopagan Solstice Celebration less than 2 weeks away, I'm very pleased to announce that we'll be marking UAN's 10th anniversary with a very special, first-ever Cauldron event:

The Great Global Group Meditation
via video

Any registered Cauldron member from anywhere in the world can teleconference in to join our special guest meditation leader as they talk us through a nondenominational meditation...a meditation on the night of the solstice, spanning pagans and non-pagans alike, from across the globe, simultaneously!

WHEN: During UAN--on the night that begins at sunset on Thursday, December 21, and ends at dawn on Friday, December 22--beginning at 2 AM Universal Time--
--6 PM Pacific and 9 PM Eastern in North America
--2 AM Greenwich Mean and 3 AM Central in Europe
--Noon [on Dec. 22] Australian Eastern
It will last about 30-40 minutes.

WHERE: Wherever you are! As long as you have computer access.

WHO: You must be a Cauldron member. Sorry, but if you've just wandered into the forums and haven't signed up yet, you're not eligible. (Simple solution: sign up!)

HOW: via a Zoom videoconference. It's free! And there's an audio-only option too, for those who want to preserve a degree of anonymity (or, if in a state of undress or sleep-deprived dishevelment, dignity)

WHAT YOU HAVE TO DO:
Pre-register with me, so that I can send you the info for connecting to the Zoom meeting, which will be sent out immediately prior to the event on the night of UAN. Just PM me with your email address, which will be used *only* for this purpose and will be kept strictly confidential.

Imagine bridging vast distances between people through the power of meditation on the night of the solstice; this year during UAN10, we'll make it a reality! I'm looking forward to meeting some of you face to face for the very first time. Join us for the Great Global Group Meditation!

The first song sets the wheel in motion / The second is a song of love / The third song tells of Her devotion / The fourth cries joy from the sky above
The fifth song binds our fate to silence / and bids us live each moment well / The sixth unleashes rage and violence / The seventh song has truth to tell
The last song echoes through the ages / to ask its question all night long / And close the circle on these pages / These, the metamythos songs

Better yet--thanks to Missgraceless doing a little further digging--I've learned you don't even have to have computer access. You can join in from your smartphone, or thanks to dial-in access, even from a "dumb" phone. Lots of options for joining in on the Great Global Group Meditation!

Go me! Haha. For Android the app is called Zoom Cloud Meetings, and you don't even have to sign up from what I understand. There's a "join" option that just requires the code which Altair will provide that night or whenever.

I'm assuming iPhone has it too, I just don't have one to look. I searched "zoom video conferencing" in my Google play store and it was the first one to pop up.

I love a good metallurgical take on the phrase "What the F---?"
