The Joy of Expressing Yourself
Kia ora <<First Name>>,

The inner child is that magical part of us that can be an endless source of creativity, vitality and renewal.
Spontaneous open expression is a typical feature of an inner child that is dynamically active in the life. When actions become natural and uninhibited, life becomes like a theatre complete with costumes, characters and dramas, with roles ready to step into and parts to play.

It is the child within us who loves to stand out and shine brightly in the theatre of life.

“Who is more foolish, the child afraid of the dark or the man afraid of the light?”  Maurice Freehill

The inner child can sometimes get a little battered and lost amongst the busy-ness of life.
Our theme for this newsletter is restoring the connection to your inner child and being more freely able to express yourself. Flower essence No 13 Kanuka takes centre stage this month, reminding us of the joy that comes from living wholeheartedly from the centre of our being. Like the Kanuka tree’s remarkable ability to restore bare eroded surfaces on the land, First Light flower essence No 13 Kanuka regenerates and restores the vitality within.

Putting Ourselves and the World Back Together Again

The upcoming Medicine Woman Residential Workshop, Retreat and Annual Gathering 2014 will be our eighth gathering at Tauhara Retreat Centre. Held on 14 – 16 November, we will be working with plant intelligence and high-frequency energy to bring about deep levels of self-healing and healing of the planet. Be sure to book your place early at

Have fun expressing yourself this month with the Sun in the zodiacal sign of Leo. By doing so you become an inspiration to others to move to centre stage and experience their own joy too.

With much aroha,

Franchelle Ofsoské-Wyber and Tony Wyber

Spring is in the Air
It is lambing season in New Zealand and we have plenty of them here, although their numbers have dropped to somewhere between 30 and 35 million. Ewes are pregnant for 5 months before giving birth to single, twin or even triplet lambs. Within a few minutes of being born, a healthy lamb will be standing on his or her feet and feeding from the mother. Occasionally, a ewe may need assistance to give birth ... Read More
