Walk Lightly, Walk in Truth
Kia Ora <<First Name>>,
Nature invites you to tread lightly upon the earth, experiencing her rhythm, hearing the language she speaks. A simple walk taken through the forests of our land brings the language she speaks accessible to your senses; the earthy aroma, the countless shades of green, the quiet stillness, and the powerful presence of the trees. Trees are our link to the language the mother speaks.

What are these ancient beings telling us? The mighty Lords of the forests of Aotearoa - Kahikatea, Matai, Totara, Kauri, Maire, Miro and Rimu are the ancient trees that have stepped forward to make up the First Light Tree Essences Collection. They come from an ancient world and bring with them the pure vibration of truth. 
tread lightly
The seven Tree Essences are extraordinarily effective in helping to bring the chakras into correct alignment. Many of you have been formally introduced to these seven Tree Essences through the First Light Flower Essences workshops and recognise their unlimited potential to assist a person to discover their truth, power and wellbeing.  Wellness is a natural expression of truth.

There is a continuous stream of correspondence from people from all over the world saying how much joy they get from working with the First Light Flower Essences of New Zealand and seeing the results they achieve. Thank you for choosing to work with the essences on yourselves and with others. It is having a profound impact on the entire planet and the consciousness of everyone who lives upon it.

We have been very busy working to bring the new Medicine Woman website online and it is expected to be live this month. There are a number of exciting features on the website that you won’t find anywhere else, making it a totally unique experience online. The Medicine Woman website offers a highly accessible gateway to the Medicine Woman programs, products and pathways made available for the discerning spiritual seeker. Keep an eye out this month for the official launch!

The growing interest in the sweat lodge offered at the Medicine Woman Healers and Shamanic Residential Retreat this year at Tauhara has meant creating a bigger lodge to accommodate as many people as possible. An authentic sweat lodge is an intense experience and is traditionally viewed as a giveaway of ourselves to purify body mind and spirit. There are still just a limited number of places left in the four planned sweat lodges so please ensure you book early to reserve your space.

May you tread lightly upon this earth.

With much Aroha,

Franchelle Ofsosk—ź-Wyber and Tony Wyber

It can be confusing trying to choose the best diet for your animal companions today because of the high level of advertising and availability of convenient and commercially processed foods. You may not even consider that a change in diet and nutrition may be beneficial for the animals in your care until a sign of ill-health or a behavioural issue presents itself. Read More

It is not a matter of if, but when a personal event will appear in our family lives as the stressors of 21st living present themselves. These challenges and hurdles we are presented with can bring valuable learning for us, however if given the opportunity they may present much instability to the family unit.
