* "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.

For my initiation ceremony~
« on: July 01, 2016, 10:44:15 pm »
I need to save up about ~35k USD asap. With very strict budgeting on my part (since I just got promoted to full time at my job - I'll be officially getting more hours next week and onward), I should be able to scrape up the amount in 2.5/3 years.

The ceremony is to rid myself of spirit sickness and to learn traditional methods from a Korean shaman living in my ancestors' city. A portion is for her time, some for the musicians, cooks and their helpers she'll need to hire, and also for all the offerings, rental of shrine site, and shrine tools I will need to take home with me (a lot of them need to be custom made to portray my gods).

I would very much appreciate any and all prayers for me to be able to reach this goal as soon as I can, through legal means and preferably without immediate family deaths.

If anyone else is interested in my journey (I will be updating my wordpress/tumblr when I make my pilgrimage along with photos, etc) and want to offer more than prayers*, I have a paypal if you're interested. Link here.


*Please do not feel pressured, I simply include the link because a few people have asked.

Thank you so much for looking, praying on my behalf and all! I appreciate it!

I admire your work in increasing the presence/recognition of Korean diaspora culture and spirituality. I'm not Korean myself, but I'm cheering on this tradition continuing to live, thrive, and adapt well to the information age (and every other context that it would) through you, and members of KDWA, and all your compatriots who have this calling.

An update!  My ceremony is scheduled for the end of this august. According to my spirit mother, I was meant to take care of the full size shrine/home temple, and to perform/leaf grand rites and ceremonies. Please take a moment to share the youcaring link if you can't donate! Thank you!
