Connecting People and Nature

to change lives, create opportunities and help heal our world

VISION

I have a vision of a world in which we have reset and rebuilt our relationship with Nature. A world in which we return to acknowledging ourselves as part of Nature and not separate from it.


Through this reconnection we can improve human and environmental health and wellbeing and hand a better world onto future generations.


My vision is that the Centre for Nature Connection will become a place of connection and innovation, collaborating with extraordinary visionaries and like minded souls in New Zealand and around the world.

Founder of Archeus and the Centre for Nature Connection

MISSION

To inspire people with the workings of Nature (and how they can work with it)

Nature is amazing. Whether you are wanting to tap into its power to help you through life, or if you are a business that's busting the old paradigm to make a positive difference to this world, or you simply want to learn more about how to work with, rather than against nature... we want to help you get there

To support environmental and human health and wellbeing

We are nature, not separate to it. When we work to 'save nature' we are actually helping save ourselves. Everything is connected, so let's get connected and see how it helps everyone, and every thing.

To help innovative businesses tell their story

Need help telling your story? We can help build websites and develop your content to tell the story of the ways in which you are making the world a better place.

LET'S WORK WITH NATURE AND RECOGNISE OURSELVES WITHIN IT

BIOGRAPHY

I have always been drawn to exploring the ways in which we have connected to nature for our health and wellbeing throughout time. I think this arose from the way nature stepped up to help me heal from a traumatic childhood event. A door was opened into a world of deeper understanding.


My professional experience includes working for the United Nations Environment Programme on the major global study The Economics of Ecosystems and Biodiversity (TEEB) and for the UK's Royal Botanic Gardens Kew. I have worked extensively as a consultant on environmental and cultural initiatives and I ran a cultural communications agency in London. I launched my award-wining natural products business, Archeus, in 2013.


I am a qualified coach and a member of the International Coaching Federation. I have worked with people, and their families at the end of life and am completing studies with the Conscious Dying Institute. I can gently guide you in all domains of life: emotional, spiritual, physical, intellectual and practical. I have a deep connection with the healing power of Nature and my academic research and practical application of this is increasingly focused on the interplay of environment, health and wellbeing.


 I am trained as a herbalist, reiki master and shamanic practitioner. I draw on wisdom through the ages: from the ancients including Trigemistus, Plato, Hippocrates, through to the renaissance visionaries Ficino and Paracelsus and on up to the present day. I love weaving this all together with the energetics of plant, place and person. This sense of oneness with Nature and place pervades everything I do and creates a beautiful practice based on love and respect for all things.

How did you develop your natural products?

Georgina has trained extensively over many years in the ways we can work with nature for our health and wellbeing. This includes qualifications in herbalism, bach flower remedies, anatomy & physiology; massage, aromatherapy, shamanic energy healing, reiki master, nutrition.


Since her childhood Nature has been her healer. It wasn’t until her late 40’s, that she launched her award-winning natural skincare business Archeus in 2013. Drawing on deep knowledge of herbal medicine and the human body, every product she developed was created to help specific issues.All Archeus products are made in a custom-built apothecary building set amid a healing garden. All products meet EU and FDA standards. 


Over time, people started coming to her as they faced major life transitions including end of life. Through her own journey, she feels deeply drawn to this compassionate and healing work, to helping people enhance their life journey by reawakening a deep connection to Nature.  She responded by developing coaching and guidance offerings, as well as creating a range of Archeus plant essences to enhance and support life journeys. 


Georgina has worked with the healing power of nature for many years and it has taught her much, but she has also continued to study with teachers and institutions across the world, from integrative health schools and palliative care experts, to shamanic practitioners and Buddhist masters.

Demand for Georgina's teaching work is growing internationally and she teaches regularly for The Alchemists Kitchen in New York and with A.T. Mann.

Why aren't you making Archeus skincare products anymore?

For many years we developed and handcrafted a wide range of premium natural skincare products. Over time though the demand for coaching and courses has risen and so we made the difficult decision to cut back the products we make. If you are wishing to purchase Archeus NatFem Balm you can do so at nfbalm.com.


We do still make our range of Archeus plant essences and elixirs as we believe these help act as a bridge between us and the plants that become our allies. These are available on this website.


We have made most of our original Archeus skincare formulas available in our courses section so that people can have the pleasure and satisfaction of making them themselves. They will also be in a book scheduled to be published in late 2021.

Can you ship your plant essences internationally?

Yes we can. We use tracked NZ International Courier Post for delivery. Domestically in NZ we use Posthaste and NZ Couriers.

Can I still purchase Archeus NatFem Balm?

Yes you can. It has its own dedicated website now which is nfbalm.com. It is still handcrafted here by us.
