Nature has been my guide and healer
– let me help you make it yours

life comes full circle

Do you have a dream that you wish you were following?

I did. And now it’s become my life.

I found an old notebook of mine the other day. I must have been in my twenties when I wrote, “I don’t want to make my love of nature a science, I wish to make it life. I wish to live within nature, to tell its stories.”

For over forty years now and regardless of ‘the day job’,  I have been working with the concept of nature-based wellness of people, places and even economies. Along the way studying and becoming an expert in environmental science, herbalism, botany and nutrition and honing my skill as a coach, massage therapist, reiki master and shamanic practitioner.

Via a long, circuitous and intensely lived journey, this looking deeper and deeper into how we connect with nature has become my life’s work.

“Everything is connected. Nothing is wasted.”


An unexpected beginning

For me, a traumatic childhood event was the catalyst that opened the door to the healing power of nature. In shamanism they say that the ones with the greatest ability to heal are those that have been wounded in some way. I am convinced that this event put me on the path of the Wounded Healer. 

“ I am part of dreaming a world of connection with nature back into being.”


What I have learned has transformed my life:

I’ve learned that we can’t shake off our stories, but we don’t have to be defined by them. We can dream a better future into being. For me, my dreaming has seen me return to that close relationship with nature, with more knowledge gained and more life lived.

"This journey has transformed my life and my work. Now I would like to help you transform yours."
"This journey has transformed my life and my work. Now I would like to help you transform yours."

Yearning for a true connection to nature

I had a rural upbringing in England and New Zealand. But like so many others, I ended up migrating to the city where I worked (and played) hard, carving out a high-pressure career.

There were times when I would have paid anything for something to help me feel that visceral connection to nature. The fact you are reading this means you probably know what that longing feels like. Finally, I heeded the signs and stepped away from my career to further my true calling.

In 2012 I returned to New Zealand, where I have dedicated myself to developing my ways of working with the healing power of nature to help others. I’ve worked with young and old, the healthy and the dying, the heartbroken and the joyful.

I advise companies and I’ve learnt how to build my own. My products have been recognised in international awards and I have won awards for the work I am doing. I’ve turned yearning into doing.

“Turning yearning into doing”

The time to connect to nature is now

Bridging ancient wisdom and modern living

The renaissance physician, philosopher and alchemist, Paracelsus, called the energy that connected us with nature and the universe the Archeus, and said that in order to heal we must work with this vital force. Now, five hundred years on from Paracelsus, I am committed to helping others connect to the healing power of nature and find their own medicine in the landscape.

“The ideal time to build your own connection with nature is now.”


Over the years my connection with nature has manifested in a number of ways. In 2013 I launched my award-winning business,  Archeus so that I could handcraft creams, oils, elixirs and other apothecary products for body and soul. In 2019 I launched georginalangdale.com as the place in which I can hand on knowledge.
