Franchelle Ofsoske-WyberA New Zealander of Russian and Native American descent, as a teenager Franchelle became aware of her close relationship with nature and developed the ability to identify the native plants that could transform negative emotions and attitudes to help people release old patterns and create profound changes in their lives.

“I learnt that with the use of the correctly selected
native plants a person could clear their energetic field from
past traumas and unhealthy patterns and return to
a natural state of wellbeing.”

Internationally recognised as a spiritual teacher and modern day medicine woman, Franchelle has appeared on a number of local and international TV programmes, documentary films and radio shows as an expert on sacred plant medicine, shamanism, spirituality and natural healing.

Over many years of working with plants from all over the world Franchelle discovered that New Zealand native plants had qualities that were unique and could not be found anywhere else on the planet.

By 1985 she was pioneering the development of the world’s first integrated range of New Zealand native flower essences that included flower, fern, tree, seed and plant essences as well as specialist essences for healers, shamans and lightworkers around the globe.

Among Maori elders, Franchelle is known as a matakite, one who sees with the healing eye, a matatuhi, one who can read what is written in the wind, and a tohuna, keeper of the ancient secrets, a tohuna tipua. She has been fully initiated into the Kura Huna, the Mystery school of the Maori, also known as the mystery school of the uppermost heaven or the 12th plane.


In 2015 Franchelle received an express invitation from Dr Rangimarie Turuki Arikirangi Rose Pere a tohuna tipua and tohunga ruahine to attend a sacred ceremony where she was adopted into the heritage of Te Rangimarie Turuki Arikirangi’s, Nga Potiki, Nga Uri-A-Maui, and Ngati Tauira, the Tangata Whenua (First Nation) of Hawaiiki Tautau, the ‘Pulse’ – New Zealand as we know it today.

This sacred three part ceremony began at Kopu Ariki Marae and Lake Waikaremoana, the inland sea of rippling waters and culminated at Papakarito, a waterfall that is a natural altar for sacred ceremony.


Franchelle was formally adopted by Dr Pere into her heritage as a tohunga ruahine, the keeper of the sacred ceremonies and the ritual priestess who is spiritual guardian of the First Voice – the spiritual language and vibrations of the divine mother from the whare wananga house of higher learning.

At this sacred ceremony Dr Pere formalised the Maori name of Franchelle’s eternal spirit, Hinemoa Whaakirangi, the Twin Flame of the Eternal Spirit Tawhaki, who upholds the Three Baskets of Knowledge, in the Uppermost Heaven.

With the formalizing of her eternal spirits name Franchelle as Hinemoa Whaakirangi is the guardian of the 12th heaven and the three baskets of knowledge, Nga Kete o te Wananga and is formally recognised as having the status of a tohunga ruahine.

A custodian of the secret shamanic healing teachings and techniques for her lineage, Franchelle has a unique ability to directly access the collective pool of ancient earth wisdom and to access universal mind at the 12th plane level of indigenous memory.

Franchelle is extensively trained in rongoa and the sacred plant lore of Aotearoa and highly attuned to the devic realm, and is able to communicate directly with the ancient people and the atua, gods and goddesses of Aotearoa.

It is this unique set of gifts that has enabled her to bring the extraordinary benefits of the First Light Flower Essences of New Zealand® to the world.


In 2002 Franchelle founded Medicine Woman Centre for Shamanic Studies® - providing the highest-level transformational training programs for the 21st century healers and spiritual seekers around the world.

The programs are suitable for all people from all walks of life - male and female, young and old - all those who hear the call to step onto the ancient path of the healer-shaman and the magical path of the priestess-priest.

Each product is made with First Light® essences and is crafted in full cooperation with nature to help people to re-connect with nature’s magical powers and the innate power within themselves.


In 2008 Franchelle was awarded the New Zealand Health Industry Distinguished Services Award for “pioneering, developing and establishing New Zealand native flower and plant essences to facilitate holistic healing”.


In 2012 Franchelle launched the First Light Natural Health® products - a range of 100% natural emotional remedies for everyday holistic support and wellbeing.

honour of my role of creating a set of unique and powerful
natural tools that can assist humanity to develop higher
consciousness during the Aquarian Age.“
