The First Light® Community

First Light® is built on the foundational principle that nature is and has always been the greatest healer and teacher. Nature teaches us that everything is interconnected, inter-related and an integral part of the great pattern or web of life. 

At First Light® we see this web of inter-connectedness and unity at work within the worldwide First Light® community or family. This First Light® family is made up from people from all walks of life who work with the essences. Some are working on their own personal healing, others are focused on assisting friends or family and there are those who are working actively be of service and assist the world community. All of these individuals have one thing in common, they are working directly with the  nature power of Aotearoa and facilitating positive empowering change at a personal and collective level across the globe.

This global First  Light® community is a rapidly expanding family with strong bonds that go beyond race, creed, culture or gender.
At First Light® we place a very high value on this powerful sense of community. We are committed to doing all we can to support and nurture our global family. For it is through the work of  this global family that the essences which embody the magic of the ancient forests of New Zealand are shared with the world and in turn these natural emotional remedies can help to make the world a better place.

First Light® Disaster Relief

We are committed to provide support to communities in times of difficulty or need through working to make New Zealand native flower essences available to the world community.  You can help with this vital work by donating to the First Light Disaster Relief and Community Support initiative and providing treatment for thousands of people.
