Inner Freedom
Kia ora <<First Name>>,
Our theme for this newsletter is freedom. A very Aquarian ideal which is embodied by flower essence No 32 Ice Plant. This New Zealand native lives best on bare coastal rock and takes advantage of even the tiniest of cracks in the rock to send its long roots down to where precious moisture exists. Plants can find ingenious ways to live in seemingly difficult environments.
The freedom to express your own unique individuality can sometimes be met with rather dry or perhaps even hostile reactions from the world today.  Like the Ice Plant, when we seek beneath the surface for our own individuality, between the cracks lies an endless source of nourishment – the experience of inner freedom. Traditionally, those in the past who were seeking to experience inner freedom would choose solitude in the mountains.
 However, one doesn’t have to be physically isolated. It is what Rumi was referring to when he wrote:
“Now that You live here in my chest,
anywhere we sit is a mountaintop.”
As we move into 2014 we can expect to see the Aquarian ideals start to develop in people’s thinking – freedom, participation and individuality. These qualities are also embodied in the other two Aquarian flower essences No 31 Native Iris and No 33 Rewarewa.
Our new timetable for 2014 includes both myself and Tony teaching the weekend flower workshop in Devonport on 1st and 2nd March followed by trees and plants workshops later in the year.  You might like to consider studying other courses by correspondence through our state of the art Cyber School. Many more students are choosing this option as a flexible and enjoyable way to manage their studies.
Our tutors have also been busy organising their workshop dates for 2014 - thank you Ana Dorrington, Astrea Morgane, Gill Williamson, Lesley Lydford-King, Minako Hama and Patricia Stowell. All the best for your workshops this year.
I invite you to read our article on moon cycles in this edition of the newsletter. Being more aware of and working with lunar rhythms can bring insight and create powerful occurrences of ‘right timing’ in your life. It was practiced by many of the ancient cultures and can be equally applied to enhance your work with the First Light Flower Essences of New Zealand® today.
With much aroha,
Franchelle Ofsoské-Wyber and Tony Wyber.
