DATE: Sunday 9th December 2018
TIME: 9:00am - 10:30am
 The Celestial Compendium: Alchemy, Astrology and Magic
VENUE: Bella Rakha Retreat Centre, Oratia, Auckland

The theme for the conference is a key statement from the Emerald Tablet which in its totality is the quintessential statement on alchemy and the alchemical process.

This presentation takes us deep into the heart of the great mystery, exploring and revealing the hidden links between the three hermetic sciences astrology, alchemy and magic and how working with them mediates the above and the below. In this fully experiential presentation each person will learn how to work in a simple, dynamic and powerful astrological, alchemical and magical way with the stars and planets to transform their life through working with the ‘One Thing’.

The presentation also reveals how to work alchemically with the astrological chart, stars and planets to bring about self-healing, through creating a personal alchemical story. We will work practically with The Celestial Compendium, an astrological and alchemical ritual divinatory tool, that is pure ‘Starcraft’ and a dynamic 21st century recontextualisation of the arcane teachings of the alchemists of old.

23 - 25th March 2018 - Franchelle Presenting Two Workshops at Voices of Sacred Earth Festival 2018

Franchelle Ofsoské-Wyber is a speaker and presenter at the Voices of Sacred Earth Festival 2018, an Eco-Festival, which gathers hundreds of people together for a weekend of seminars, transformational workshops and performances focusing on indigenous cultures, Earth wisdom, sacred ceremony, well-being and social change. Come and see us at our stall – there will be event only specials that you won’t want to miss! We look forward to seeing you there!

Session 1: Ritual and Ceremony

DATE: Saturday 24th March 2018
TIME: 1:00pm
TOPIC:  Ritual and Ceremony - The Language of Soul

The power of ritual and ceremony is perhaps one of the most underestimated and least understood esoteric sciences. Ritual and ceremony is a language and it is a language that speaks to the soul and spirit. Working with ritual and ceremony can awaken the ‘inner song.’ To be able to truly awaken to our inner song we have to live a life that is truly authentic.

To live a truly authentic life is to dance in sacred relationship with the cosmos, the celestial gods and goddesses. In this presentation you will learn how you can not only learn the steps of the dance but to participate fully in the cosmic dance as a warrior magician, a warrior of light who works with the unconquerable magic of light.

Session 2: Walking the Path of Authenticity

DATE: Sunday 25th March 2018
TIME: 3:00pm
TOPIC:  Walking the Path of Authenticity – The Path of the Magical Self

To successfully walk the path of authenticity, the path of soul requires working with the four powers of the sphinx. These legendary magical powers are the keys to discover the magic of the soul self which mediates between the worlds. To learn the art of how to apply the four powers of the sphinx is to be able to dance between heaven and earth.

Walking the path of authenticity and living the authentic life is to walk magically in the world and to live a truly magical life. In this presentation you will learn how to work with the four powers of the sphinx that are encapsulated in the magical admonition: to know, to dare, to will and be silent. These four powers when understood enable a person to change the fabric of the universe to purpose good as they are the four pillars of the 8th ray magician.

Franchelle Ofsoské-Wyber is an internationally recognised spiritual teacher and high initiate of the ancient mysteries. She is the Hermetic lineage custodian of the esoteric teachings on the ancient high sciences of astrology, alchemy and magic that originated in ancient Egypt. Under the direction and direct instruction of the Egyptian master Serapis Bey, she created 8th Ray Ritual Magic® the unconquerable magic of light to ‘purpose good’ that is overlit by the Lord of Shamballa, Sanat Kumara.

Franchelle is co-founder of First Light Flower Essences of New Zealand, founder and spiritual director of the Medicine Woman Centre for Shamanic and Esoteric Studies® and creator of 8th Ray Ritual Magic®

First Light® Theme for 2018

2+0+1+8 = 11

The year 2018 is a Number 11 year – a number known as a ‘master’ number which carries a particularly high vibration and offers the opportunity for enhanced personal spiritual growth and an expanded ability to be of service to the world community.

The number 11 is the number associated with creating balance between the spiritual and material worlds and has inherent within it the number 2 which is the number of wisdom and science combined.

Establish a new way of living

The number 11 corresponds to the powers of light and seeding in or working to establish a new way of living - one that is in keeping with your true self and which brings greater balance in the relationship between your physical and spiritual life.

The ancient people had no specific name or number for the number 11 and described it as being the number 1 and 10. The ancients understood that an 11 year was a special time when the powers of light represented by the number 1 could be worked with to ensure perfect order is established in the life represented by the number 10.

Deeper truths about your own life

In 2018 there is opportunity to see ‘behind the veil’ for deeper truths about your own life and how you can work with the powers of light to bring about perfect order. From this place of intuitive visioning, your future can begin to take form and a new way of living unfold.

In very practical terms, it is an optimal time to begin an ongoing program of self-transformation and personal development. 2018 is a year when you can begin a new cycle of activity and actively work with the powers of light in the form of First Light® flower and plant essences to bring about total transformation in your life and create change in the world around you.

First Light® Flower Essence Recommendations for 2018

To take advantage of the opportunities of this very special year – a number 11 year, the following two First Light® plant essences enhance the capacity to align yourself to the new cycle and the opportunities inherent in it.

No 64 Koromiko - The Wisdom essence. This First Light® plant essence supports you to bring inner poise and tranquillity allowing you to access wisdom and understand deeper significances. It is associated with the archetype of the wise woman – the priestess, healer or psychic.

No 73 Coastal Lobelia - The Decisiveness essence. Supports objectivity, clarity and impartiality. This plant essence supports balance between the left and right hemispheres of the brain, which creates opportunity to receive intuitive insights and act upon these insights in a neutral and purposeful manner.

In addition, the following First Light® flower essences are very beneficial to use in a Number 11 year to create change, uplift and inspire, engaging in activities that benefit self and others and surrounding yourself with those who seek to bring about positive changes on a bigger scale.

No 31 Native Iris - The Individuality essence. A torchbearer, radiates the energy of change, liberates oneself and others from outmoded beliefs and attitudes. Supports you to be liberated from the restriction or definition of who others think you are.

No 32 Ice Plant - The Freedom essence. A lightbearer, imagines future possibilities that are not yet conceivable to others, a wider sense of identity, co-operation and community based friendship. Desires to grow through shared experiences with others.

No 33 Rewarewa - The Participation essence. Restraint, wisdom, self-mastery, approachable, a universal outlook, engages in activities that benefit self and others. Works responsibly for the greater good.

You can take these flower essences individually 2-4 drops directly under the tongue or in a glass of water 3-4 times daily. Or you can use them to create your own flower essence blend.

It can take up to two months to establish energetic alignment and changes within the holistic being, we recommend to take the essences for two months.
