Griffin Ced is the Virtue holder and Witch Father for the Ced Tradition and family line. Together with Rita Morgan, the Dame and Mother of the Line, they have lead the Line and Tradition in the USA for the past 20 years. Hailing from Britain, Griffin comes from a mix of Hertfordshire Village folk, Romany Gypsy, Essex and London breeding. The Witchblood was passed onto him across the veil from his Great-Grandmother, who having decided it was time to move on, drowned herself in a bucket a year before his birth. He was raised with Spiritualism and good old fashioned British Craft, into which he was initiated in Essex back in 1975. Escaping the soggy isles for the snowy climbs of Norway, a quick tour of Africa and many other strange lands, he finally fell in love with California, making LA his home for the past 24 years! Griffin has been teaching and leading public rituals for the past two decades and is committed to Community-building today at The Green Man store in North Hollywood. Griffin is the Manager of The Green Man, helping to create the magical experience people have come to love with the store. At the Green Man, in addition to Pagan Products, Griffin and his associates offer public rituals and many diverse craft-related classes on a weekly basis.
Joe is a father, a college professor, and a writer. He has a doctorate in clinical psychology with an emphasis in the work of Carl Jung, and is a licensed psychotherapist with a practice in the Pasadena area. He is also a certified hypnotist, NLP practitioner and Reiki level 2. Last but not least, Joe is a magickian who has explored and practiced the path of magick for 35 years.
Joe began his studies as a solitary practitioner of Ceremonial Magick. He eventually became a member of three different Golden Dawn Orders, completing his work in the outer order in 2003. Since then, he has continued to study and teach on a broad range of magickal topics and has been a founding member of four magickal/pagan groups: the Kaotic Order of Adventurers Seekers and Sorcerers, The Fellowship of the Gods, The Magus Project, and The Association of Pagan Therapists. He has also studied Qabbalah, Witchcraft, Hoodoo, Thelema, Enochian, Obeah, and Chaos Magic. He will be opening a website of courses on 21st century Kabbalah sometime in October just before the end of the world because — well, when else would a Chaos Magician do something like that?
Monica was born and raised on the east coast, and migrated to L.A. in 1993. She is clairvoyant and clairaudient, and uses both of these gifts in her Tea Leaf Readings. She has been a spiritual adviser for over 20 yrs. Her gifts first showed themselves through dreams and evolved later into reading the leaves. During the reading, Monica works with her spirit guide, who aids with the information that is given. Also during her readings, animals will appear, which have their own special meanings, lessons, warnings, or information for the querent. She has studied and learned the language of the animal messengers. She finds the Tea Leaves to be a very accurate system of getting the information that is needed.
Monica teaches Candle Magic and Pendulum classes at The Green Man, and dresses custom candles for customers. She also is available to scry (read) the remnants of a spell candle to give further insight.
