Jocelyn Almond and Keith Seddon were born in 1956 in England, and met at school in 1975. They married in 1977, and each attained a BA degree with first class honors in Studies in the Humanities from the University of Hertfordshire in 1982, and a PhD in Philosophy from University College, London in 1986.
In the early 1990s they became members of the international Goddess organization, the Fellowship of Isis (FOI), in which Jocelyn trained for the priesthood. In 1995 she became a Priestess-Hierophant and began to run FOI Magi Degree courses by correspondence through her Lyceum of Isis Myrionymous within the Fellowship. In 2001 she was appointed to the Archpriesthood Union, the custodial body of the FOI. Keith furthered his studies in Ancient Philosophy, and founded the Stoic Foundation, through which he runs a correspondence course in spiritual well-being. He also works as a correspondence tutor for Warnborough University, Canterbury, England, where he is Professor of Philosophy, teaching MA and PHD programs in Ancient Ethics, Metaphysics and Philosophy of Religion. They live near to London and together run a local moot of the Pagan Federation-the leading Pagan organization in Britain.
