* "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.

Is there a path that follows Gaia?
« on: January 15, 2012, 01:01:44 am »
I've identified myself as a pagan for a while now but I am yet to find my path, there are so many things I like in theory but I am yet to find something I connect with spiritually.
Lately i have found myself drawn to Gaia as a diety, but all the information I find about her is brief and always contradicting itself and other things I've read. The Greek pantheon also apeals to me but the more I try and research it the more confused I become and so I am in search of a person, group or website that looks at Gaia from a spiritual point of view to point me in the right direction.

There really wasn't any cult/worship devoted to Gaia that we know of in Ancient Greece. In this true of many of the older Gods who seemed to exist to be in creation myths and the like rather than to be worshipped.

How about PaGaian Cosmology: Re-inventing Earth-based Goddess Religion by Glenys Livingstone?

There's also a chapter on Gaia in Devoted To You: Honoring Deity in Wiccan Practice by Judy Harrow et al. I've heard some great reviews of this book.

As long as one isn't expecting an ancient Greek outlook, this might be helpful.
