Scáthach Oath of Knighthood (Code of Chivalry) :
By the power of earth, water, air, fire, and spirit, before the Gods, the Sidhe and the Ancestors, I do declare before this assemblage my fealty and allegiance to Scáthach, to its thirteen precepts, and to the rule of law.
So shall I ever defend the values of Sincerity, Courtesy, Compassion, Perseverance, Industriousness, Justice, Loyalty, Courage, Self-Discipline, Humility, Largesse, Dignity, Truth, and Honor, which in this modern world are so often neglected. I take these values into my heart and soul that they may manifest themselves in my words and deeds.
Standing proud and free, radiating my inner truth, exultant in my power, I raise up my voice and proclaim myself to be a knight of Scáthach and to dedicate myself to the mastery and defense of these values. In this I am resolved. This I declare before the Gods, the Sidhe and the Ancestors.
The main Scáthach preceptory meets in Surrey, with additonal preceptories in North Surrey and the Tri Cities area (Port Coquitlam) . Scáthach also offers on line training for people who are in other parts of the world (see our training blog: http://dunscathach.wordpress.com/) . Order of Scáthach training is free. Scáthach has a members only blog that members use to communicate with one another.
Scáthach is a study group for people interested in Wiccan magick, energy work and rituals related to the Warrior path. I expect everyone to participate and contribute. The first phase of training (novice) has to do with energy, psychic skills and magick. At the end of this first phase the novice becomes a squire at an Armoring ceremony. The second level of training has to do with ritual and magickal weapons. At the end of this second phase the squire becomes a knight at an Arming ceremony. The third phase of training is about teaching and leadership. At the end of the third phase the knight becomes a master.
