2018 Donation Drive

It's time for our annual Server Donation Drive! We need to raise about $650 ($200 less than 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 21 Sept 2018: $694.52 donated. That's $94.52 more than needed to reach our minimum goal!


We've gone noticeably over our minimum for the first time in 5 years. Could we make $750 by the end of the drive on 30 September? It would be wonderful if we could, but the pressure is off thanks to our generous donors!


* "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.

Hello! Just joined today
« on: September 07, 2018, 04:08:49 pm »
I started spiritually seeking again last year after a lot of time in a sort of shut down agnostic phase.

I had some mind opening experiences with shamanic journeying and realized that there was more out there then I'd wanted to admit to for a long time.  I started with uncertainty, spent some time with Dharma Punk and Buddhism and have been mostly exploring druidry lately.

I am very happy to be learning and exploring again.

Welcome to the Cauldron! This is a great place for religious exploration.
"The worshippers of the gods go to them; to the manes go the ancestor-worshippers; to the Deities who preside over the elements go their worshippers; My devotees come to Me." ... "Whichever devotee desires to adore whatever such Deity with faith, in all such votaries I make that particular faith unshakable. Endowed with that faith, a votary performs the worship of that particular deity and obtains the fruits thereof, these being granted by Me alone." - Sri Krishna

Welcome to The Cauldron!  What type of druidry are you interested in?

I've been taking a course with OBOD.  I do like the idea of the nature being at the forefront of all things and the druids don't push druidry as a religion but rather a philosophy.  That's what appealed to me about the western take on Buddhism.  I like it as a spiritual philosophy but don't like when they organize into a formal religion.

I really like the idea of taking bits and pieces from different things and forming your own belief system.

Hello and welcome to the Cauldron! You'll find a lot of resources here - there is a Special Interest Group (SIG) for Druidry I believe on the forum. Also, I suggest looking through the different threads to find more information. Lastly, there's always our Discord chat to talk with others and explore ideas.

Enjoy!
