Medicine Woman Centre for Shamanic and Esoteric Studies® Founder & Spiritual Director

"Under certain conditions the Goddess herself would incarnate, either at birth or through spiritual initiation"

- The Magdalen Manuscript




My name is Franchelle Ofsoské-Wyber. I am a spiritual teacher, healer, medicine woman, and creator of 8th Ray Ritual Magic©. As tohunga wairuahine I am the keeper of the sacred ceremonies and the ritual priestess and master shamaness of an ancient lineage. My life has been and continues to be an absolutely extraordinary one – a life that has been totally dedicated to spirit for as long as I remember. A New Zealander of Russian and Native American descent the old ways were in my blood long before I was born.



I come from a long line of medicine men and women with highly developed psychic abilities. On my mother’s side I come from a lineage of Russian healers and shamans.
I began my life’s work after receiving my medicine name ‘Buffalo Woman Returns’ when I was seven years old. My formal dedication and initiation to a life of spiritual service occurred when I was 16 and a half. At this time I saw my future and knew I was to use the gifts I had been given in service to others and to work with the remarkable properties and powers of the nature forces of Aotearoa New Zealand.
My lifelong journey with the sacred plant medicine of Aotearoa includes my role as a co-creator of First Light Flower Essences of New Zealand®, founder and director of The Medicine Woman Centre for Shamanic and Esoteric Studies®, founder of First Light Natural Health® and creator of the Franchelle Ofsoské-Wyber – Medicine Woman® range of magical products.



I have been fully initiated into the Kura Huna, the mystery school of the uppermost heavens. The Maori medicine name given to me as part of my initiation into the Kura Huna is ‘Little Hinemoa.’ This name carries the sacred vibrations of courage, commitment, and determination; qualities necessary to achieve the work the atua, the gods and goddesses of Aotearoa have given me to do in this lifetime.

I am described as a matakite (seer - one who sees with the healing eye) and matatuhi (prophet - one who can read what is written in the wind) by Dr Rangimarie Turuki Arikirangi Rose Pere, Maori elder and Tohuna Tipua (Sower and Keeper of Sacred Knowledge from the Kura Huna) and Tohunga Ruahine (Spiritual Guardian of the First Voice: The Spiritual Language and Vibrations of the Divine Mother from the Whare Wananga University).

I am also described by Dr Pere as being a learner/teacher tohuna – a keeper of the ancient secrets of Maori culture. I have been given direct access to the hidden world of the tohunga and tohuna, to the ancient karakia (incantations/prayers) and to the old highly secret ways of working with native plants for a healing and magical outcome. My work with the sacred plant medicine and plant magic of Aotearoa initiated by the tipuna (ancestors) and the atua has left me with first hand knowledge, experience and expertise as to the mighty spiritual knowledge and magical power possessed and demonstrated by the ancient people.

I carry the spirit connections and healing mantle for many ancient shamanic lineages including Aboriginal, Bon Tibetan, Native American, Gypsy, Scandinavian and African lineages. I have been traditionally trained by some of the last custodians of advanced shamanic healing and the sophisticated magical practices of the ancient people.

As a custodian of the secret shamanic healing and magical teachings and techniques for my lineage I have a unique ability to directly access the collective pool of ancient earth wisdom and access universal mind at the 12th plane level of indigenous memory. Working at this level means there are no cultural and gender restrictions or limitations on the spiritual or magical information able to be accessed.



In 2015 I received an express invitation from Dr Rangimarie Turuki Arikirangi Rose Pere to attend a sacred ceremony where I was adopted into the heritage of her people, 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. Here, I was 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. Dr Pere formalised the Maori name of my Eternal Spirit, Hinemoa Whaakirangi, the Twin Flame of the Eternal Spirit Tawhaki, who upholds the Three Baskets of Knowledge, in the Uppermost Heaven.


In 2017 I created 8th Ray Ritual Magic© - a complete and revolutionary system of ritual magic for the 21st century that enables you to work with the powers of the cosmos and change the very fabric of the universe. Through working as an 8th Ray Ritual Magician© you can transform yourself, your life and effect changes in the world around you. The necessary teachings and training for becoming an 8th Ray Ritual Magician© is taught exclusively through The Medicine Woman Centre for Shamanic and Esoteric Studies® online school to people all over the world.




I see my life work represented by Nga Kete o te Wananga, the three baskets of knowledge in Maori spirituality.


The first kete has a therapeutic focus.

This kete holds First Light Flower Essences of New Zealand®. The First Light range of essences carries the fully restored ancient teachings for the sacred plant medicine of Aotearoa, the land of the ever shining light. The First Light range of flower essences makes available for the first time a completely integrated holistic system for restoring total wellbeing specially created to meet the requirements of humanity in the Aquarian Age, the Age of Cherishing Waters, te wa o nga waiahuruhuru.

The second kete has a spiritual focus.

This kete holds The Medicine Woman Centre for Shamanic and Esoteric Studies®. The Medicine Woman programs offer fully experiential transformational training programs for the healers, shamans, spiritual seekers around the world and those who wish to attain the highest levels of initiation on the priestess and priest pathway. The Medicine Woman spiritual pathway involves the age-old tradition of working with sacred teacher and master plants for personal and planetary transformation. This training is made available in the 21st century through the completed, restored and recontextualised ancient sacred rites of passages of the healer-shaman.

The third kete has a magical focus.

This kete holds the complete range of Franchelle Ofsoské-Wyber® Medicine Woman products. The magical power of a special order of native whakahirahira plants has been distilled into an easy to use magical range of Medicine Woman products that includes plant spells, nature’s spell boxes, magical anointing oils, space transforming misters and plant magic skin care. These are genuine magical products and are the result of my role of keeper of the secrets of the sacred plant magic of Aotearoa. This kete holds the teachings of the ancient tradition of working magically with plants and enables people to work actively, powerfully and cooperatively with the planetary forces and the intelligence of nature to create change and live an enchanted joyful life.




Over the years I have appeared in a number of international television programs and documentaries on sacred plant medicine, shamanism, spirituality and natural healing.

In 2008 I was awarded the New Zealand Health Industry Distinguished Services Award for “Pioneering, Developing and Establishing New Zealand Native Flower and Plant Essences for Holistic Healing”.

My book The Sacred Plant Medicine of Aotearoa Volume One was published in 2009 - a definitive ethnobotanical reference book that completely restores the ancient teachings that are the basis of the sacred plant medicine of Aotearoa.

I am often invited to speak at national and international conferences and festivals and I am currently working on The Sacred Plant Medicine of Aotearoa Volume Two.

I am an inspirational and powerful speaker and available for public talks and presentations speaking for larger groups of clients.

Currently I am available for a limited number of private appointments. Please visit my website at www.franchelleofsoskewyber.com to book an appointment.
