2019 Donation Drive

It's time for our annual Server Donation Drive! We need to raise at least $650 (same as 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 16 Sept 2019: $660 donated. $10 more our minimum goal! Let's beat last year's total of $99 more than the minimum!

Note: This total is updated manually, usually once a day

* "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 "".  If it starts with" (or "") you will get this error because "" is not technically the same website as "". Moving to the more secure "https" means it is more picky about such things.

Greetings, All!  Dwayne, here!

We all carry around some "baggage", and have made mistakes in our lives.  That, and being Pagan, in the middle of a "Bible-belt", can make it difficult to get out there and meet somebody nice.  Of course we are all "nice, and we are all beautiful -- each in our own unique way  But, while sitting around on my Gov't Disability Pension, I am a trained and certified peer Advocate & Counsellor, for mental health and addiction services clients that don't want to use (or are afraid of) the "System"; so that's the members of Society that I tend to find myself welcoming into my home.  So, I spend a lot of nights alone.

Everybody tells me I'm "a great guy, gentle, kind, and compassionate, with a good sense of humour".  They tell me I'm good looking -- though I find it hard to swallow that one -- And "passionate" -- which usually interprets as intense and overwhelming.

... I hate the loneliness!  But I am terrified of people!  I communicate (dwell) much more comfortably online, rather than face-to-face.  It tends to give a false presence (online) that I am deep and spiritually grounded, to the online community.  But the loneliness, and the insecurities keep quietly eating away at me.  I have tried to find and gather the local Pagan community, but they all seem to prefer practicing alone.  ... I guess Ièm just wondering, if anyone here has the same experiences.

Peace, Hope, & Brightest Blessings!
