Welcome to New Instructor Puck
By Provost Nicholas Kingsley
The Grey School of Wizardry is glad to introduce one of our newest team members, Instructor Puck!
Iago Ferraz Wild, or simply "Puck," is a Wizard residing in Brazil, leader of the Bode da Lunar Goat clan, fortune teller, writer, psychoanalyst and biologist (a frog music researcher!). Heathen, his way is oriented especially to Germanic Paganism, from which comes his philosophy, code of honor and his main style of magick: the Galdr.
Although his Gods took him to the North, he grew up with many references from Afro-Brazilian religions, gypsy culture, from his coexistence with native shamanism and from modern witchcraft/neopaganism, and so on. In his teens, he was the first Brazilian Apprentice at the Grey School of Wizardry, being Lodge prefect, and even serving as a part of the GSW staff after coming of age.
Today he has a public work in the Brazilian pagan community, sharing wisdom, uniting the community and fighting religious intolerance, always seeking to awaken the magick in people's hearts and remember the name of the Ancient Gods and Spirits.
Welcome to the GSW Team, we can't wait to see all that you accomplish!
Welcome to New Instructor Meridian

Meridian is a seasoned explorer of life's mysteries and wonders who has traveled the world over.
Born into the herbal healing traditions of the Navajo Nation, she traveled extensively while serving in the military (Military Police, Desert Storm Veteran). Her journeys led her to exploring the rich and fascinating study, as well as the practice, of Hoodoo in the American south.
As her Travels took her onward still, she found herself in Europe where she was able to engage with European witchcraft traditions, learning the craft in both Germany and England. While attending college in New York City, Meridian had the distinct honor of being initiated into one of the major Esoteric Orders of that fine city's rich history As a retired Police Officer, current educator specializing in working alongside children with learning disabilities, and being a devoted mother, Meridian is an example to others in patience, understanding, and service; Always taking the time to understand a problem and present a meaningful solution.
In addition to her love of people, Meridian is a lover of animals as well. With a passion for the equestrian arts, being a talented dog trainer as well as a licensed falconer, Meridian explores the deep and meaningful connections one can share with an animal companion in the most Wizardly of ways.
