2017 Donation Drive -- Please Help Keep TC Online

It's time for our annual Server Donation Drive! We need to raise just over $850 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 November: Only $124 more (after Paypal fees) needed to reach our goal! Please donate if you can.


* "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.

Hi, I'm interested in learning
« on: March 15, 2017, 10:45:00 pm »
First, please forgive any typos, I chronically use my phone, and the autocorrect has been known to be overly aggressive as a result of my tendency to get letters out of order.

Now that that is out of the way, hi! I'm an atheist who does not believe in magic. At all. I may end up not belonging here, and that's O.K.

I do enjoy ritual and herb-lore, and that's what I hope I might be able to learn here.

While I don't personally believe it will have a magical effect, there is some science to herb-lore, like lavender being soothing, that fascinates me.

I have an undergrad degree in chemistry, which might have something to to with that.

It's a pleasure to meet you.

Welcome from another "fish out of water"...but one who generally has been welcomed to this pond.

Welcome to the cauldron! We welcome all kinds here, and there are a few atheists on the forum, I believe. There is also a psycho-spiritual movement within paganism as of late that focuses on the psychological aspect of ritual/practices rather than basing them on deity. I hope you find what you're looking for, and good luck. :)

Welcome to TC!
My pronouns are zie/zir/zirs but they pronouns are easier to remember for most folks.
