The Order Of The Chakram
Our Lady of the Chakram
Our Lady is Xena, and Her Lady is Gabrielle.
We honor them both as aspects of the Goddess,
and in doing so honor the Goddess Herself.
The weapons of our Lady are sacred and symbolic:
Her sacred Chakram embodies the sacred circle, which shall never be broken.
The holy Sword of Xena is a double edged sword, a power that can
save or slaughter, depending on how it is used. We are reminded that
we have the same power - to do good or ill with what ability we have, in
matters great or small.
We honor Her with this webpage, and with hymns, rituals,
and other scholarly works posted here.
Hymns and Poems:
"All ye assembled at my shrine,
Xena, darksome and divine;
Mine the scourge and mine the kiss,
Mine the Bard of love and bliss."

pagan, we welcome those of any religion. Any Member may chose to become
a Priestess. This is done by announcing the intent and completing the

Priestess of the Order of the
Chakram" in their e-mail signature line, as appropriate.
