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 23 Sept 2018: $737.91 donated. That's $87.91 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 all!
« on: March 08, 2018, 06:49:53 pm »
I'm Ian, and I've been dabbling in paganism for a couple years now. Admittedly, I've been pretty slow in forming a practice for a variety of reasons, but I consider myself primarily Kemetic oriented, solitary (for lack of an easily accessible local community) with some other eclectic elements (mostly towards germanic and mesopotamian spirituality). I'm not interested in fully reconstructing ancient religion, but do like much of my information to be historically informed. I would like to delve more into meditation/trancework and magic, but it's been slow going.

I'm on the autistic spectrum, and have some spoons issues, which is part of why my research has gone somewhat slow. My life situation is tough, as I'm unemployed, and cannot drive, and have several mental health problems. Nevertheless, I have been able to find the divine even in my own life situation, and it has brought me enormous intellectual and spiritual stimulation. Sometimes, but not very often, I write spiritual poetry, though the quality is a bit up and down, haha. Eventually I may like to do some sort of blogging or article writing, but we'll see.

En hotep, selim, seele and thank you for your hospitality.

Hiya Ian welcome aboard do mind the railings don't fall overboard!  Life vests are located at every odd numbered door, and life boats are located at the front, middle, and rear of the vessel.  Mind the pool, there's no life guard on duty.
For he who has truly lived never truly dies.

Eclectic autistic Kemetics represent! ;)

we rise and fall
as our ashes turn to dust
we shine like stars    - Covenant, "Bullet"
