Moving Forward Into the New Year
Kia Ora <<First Name>>,

Welcome to a new year of opportunity! 2013 is the year that the Chinese refer to as the Water Snake and it offers a fresh new beginning that holds the building blocks for peace and harmony for the coming years.

As it is a time of bridging the old with the new, and of people working with the new energies, the three First Light essences No 31 Native Iris No 32 Ice Plant and No 33 Rewarewa set the theme for this month's newsletter. Their very 'Aquarian' energies bring about a change in consciousness towards a more universal and humanitarian way of life and assist people to work successfully in this new age. First Light Life Changes Support© also enhances the opportunities on offer to embrace new beginnings and creates a smooth transition from what has ‘been and gone’ into a life that holds the invigorating potential of the new.
On February 9th and 10th I will be giving two morning presentations at ‘The Voices of Sacred Earth’ conference in Albany, Auckland entitled ‘Sacred Plant Medicine of Aotearoa’ and 'The Way of the Medicine Woman'. voices It will be an opportunity for you to work with hinengaro - whole brain processes, and be introduced to the fascinating world of the Kura Huna – the mystery school of the Maori. You will have the chance to make up your own specially formulated combination essence using the First Light Flower Essences of New Zealand® to take home.  At the New Spirit Festival on the 23rd and 24th of February I will be speaking further about the magical world of the Maori Tohuna and Tony will be giving a talk about harnessing the power of lunar, solar and stellar energies in your spiritual journey. I look forward to seeing you there.

Workshops have already begun for the year and you will now find the listings for these at the bottom of the newsletter. The successful completion of all ten NZNFE workshops, case studies and thesis entitles you to be eligible for the Certificate of New Zealand Native Flower Essence Therapy. We have several people receiving their certificates this month - congratulations on your success and hard work!

The online courses run by Medicine Woman have continued to be busy right through the holiday period with enrolments coming in at each new moon for the Rite of the Six Moons and Healers Apprenticeship. Those who began their Medicine Woman Healers Apprenticeship in February 2012 are nearing the end of their one year journey of dieting and working with the essences from the Healers collection. Their journeys have been an empowering and completely life changing experience that have brought them to a new level of working with the plant medicine of Aotearoa. We will have some of their experiences to share in the next newsletter, which I am sure you will enjoy reading.

I wish you all the success and growth this year has to offer.

With much aroha,

Franchelle Ofsoské-Wyber and Tony Wyber

Rite of the Six Moons Opens Up New Opportunities
Louisa Chase successfully completed the Medicine Woman Rite of the Six Moons© in 2012. It is a fully certificated 28 week personal and planetary purification program that includes working with very specialised families of New Zealand native teacher plant essences. This intensive program can be undertaken by anyone who wishes to go through a fully integrated energetic upgrade in the form of a mentored and structured self-initiatory purification process.
Following her journey with the Medicine Woman Rite of the Six Moons© and through a series of synchronistic events the opportunity opened up for Louisa to be employed as the new Project Manager for the North Shore EcoFestival.  She feels privileged to have ended up in a job where she is bringing people together with the aim of helping Papatuanuku, and connecting communities. EcoFest runs from the 1st to the 31st of March 2013 with a variety of events happening in different locations across the North Shore.  Well done Louisa!

No.31 Native Iris
no.31 native iris
No 31 Native Iris is the essence of individuality. Those who are in a positive Native Iris state know they are liberated from the restriction or definition of what others think they should be. They know their own mind and can move into the future with confidence as a torchbearer, able to uplift and support others when change is happening all around. They know who they truly are...

Essences for Dog Training
When it comes to training your dog, the schools of thought on ‘how to’ and the psychology behind training are changing. Depending upon your level of experience and familiarity with dogs you may choose to use a private dog handler, attend a training school or club or you may choose to work from home on your own. Your choice of training will also depend upon what you want and expect from your dog...Read More
