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 discovered energy healing intuitively, when he decided to work on himself to relieve a minor problem that wasn’t responding to standard treatments. The positive result of that experiment inspired him to learn more about the human energy field. While studying, he continued to work with healing energy for friends and family. His interest in the subject eventually led him to Reiki, a Japanese form of energy work, and he became a certified as a Reiki Master in 2009.
Following certification, Joe’s working methods continued to evolve; they are now a blend of Reiki and his own intuitively guided technique. This creates sessions that are unique for each recipient.
A person’s energetic condition can influence both his physical and emotional states. Thus, recipients of Joe’s energy work have experienced a wide range of benefits, from relaxation and stress relief to profound personal discovery and revelation.
Joe works exclusively at The Green Man, and is available by appointment on Fridays and weekends.
