Elysia lives a magical life, in a magical cottage, on a large, magical estate, where she creates and puts her own magical stamp on things. No seriously, she does! Where one might think that this leads to a very “Airy Fairy” type of person, she’s really not. Even being a rather strange child, with the ability to see things around others that most would chalk up to a vivid imagination, she remains very sneakily grounded. With both Sun and Moon in Scorpio, it’s no surprise that Elysia was born with the gifts of Clairvoyance, Clairaudience, and Clairsentience, resulting in her being a working Practitioner of Magic for over 20 years. Using these tools to open doors for herself, she developed a unique knack of being able to see and break through patterns that others perpetuate in their lives. Using the help and deep well of her own guides, she is often able to help a person develop a “game plan” on how to address an issue and change the outcome. Add in that she is the creator and force behind Naughty Faery Creations, where she creates crowns, jewelry, and all of the yummy stick incense that you can find currently at The Green Man Store, you will come to see that she works hard to wield change in her own environment as well as others’ whenever and wherever needed. Her honesty and ethics are often found to be refreshing and people often leave their readings feeling more grounded and empowered.
Elysia’s Specialties include:
What she refers to as “The Three C’s” (Clairvoyance, Clairaudience and Clairsentience)
Protection, Cleansing and Warding of Personal Space
Candle Magic (Money, Sexual Connection, Love Attraction, to name a few) (only on days she works the store OR she may make candle suggestions for you)
Natal Chart Interpretation and a better understanding of what certain signs in your life may mean to you
Pathworking and Spiritual Guidance
Faerie and Dragon Bags, (similar to Mojo Bags) (only on days she works the store)
Sigil work for changing current fate (extra charge)
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.
“Getting a reading from me is like sitting down with an old friend and telling stories. The cards unfold before our eyes laying out the story of you. Looking at issues of love, money, career, etc., I’ll sit and interpret the messages of the cards, and give you guidance to help you make the right choice.”
Growing up, Hovik always had a sense of knowing things and would pick up on people and how they felt. He came across the tarot and was able to use the cards to provide a clear language to convey messages in many areas including love, money, business, career, and even general personal concerns.
Hovik also does traditional coffee ground readings as well–an old practice learned from his family. He is down to earth and straight forward when it comes to readings, but also keeps things relatable and relaxed. He lays the cards out to unfold the story of you.
Hovik studied Wicca with various mentors throughout his youth. As an active practitioner of the magical arts, he can also offer magical solutions to life’s problems.

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.
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.

Sherry has worked in the medical field since 1971. While working for a large orthopedic medical group, she interviewed patients and heard about their experiences with western medical care. She began to look for a more integrated and effective way of offering relief from disease and discomfort, while creating a stronger partnership with patients in their pursuit of health and wellness.
The Universe answered.
Sherry found her way to Emperor’s College of Traditional Oriental Medicine in Santa Monica where she was trained in all facets of Traditional Chinese Medicine. She graduated from Emperor’s with a Masters Degree, Magna cum Laude.
She is also a trained Reiki practitioner as such, combines acupuncture with energy work to achieve powerful results in her patients’ lives. Energy blockages can be freed and energy centers (Chakras) aligned allowing the body to heal itself, physically and spiritually.
