Tues. 9th January- Adrian Incledon-Webber
Talk – Elementals my dear Watson – Working with Nature Spirits

There must be fact behind our Folklore, otherwise it would not have stood the test of time. The Leprechauns of Ireland, the Troll of Scandinavia and Iceland, the Fairies on the Isle of Man, so many countries have their tales of the little folk and all are slightly different. They are the unseen (by most) and tireless workers of the world and they are linked to the four elements: earth, wind, fire and water. By identifying and working with them their energies can be harnessed for the good of us and the planet.

During his talk Adrian will identify various groups of elementals, how we can recognise their presence and how to connect with them to benefit us, our homes and gardens. He will also explain how they can become trapped in our homes, the sort of problems that they can cause us and our pets, and importantly how to rescue them.

April  –  ‘Discover Dowsing in Devon’ Workshop on ‘Dowsing for Water’.
Date and location to be confirmed.

Tues. 10th April- Janet Daynes
Talk – Dowsing as a Geophysical Tool, part II.
This presentation by Janet Daynes (a dowser and archaeologist) is an update to a talk she gave us back in 2012. Then, Devon Dowsers were invited to take part in the Moistown Archaeology Project by dowsing for walls at the site. This was carried out in 2013 before any geophysics or excavation took place.  Since then ACE Archaeology Club has done both and more dowsing!  Although ACE has not finished excavating, the results so far are intriguing.

Saturday / Sunday  14th -15th April  – Wilderness Weekend, RHS Rosemoor, Great Torrington
We will be demonstrating dowsing again at this event.

Sat or Sunday  5th or 6th May International Dowsing Day-  Return visit to Cadbury Castle, near Tiverton

Tues. 8th May – Gwynn Paulett
Talk – “Did Julius Caesar cross my lawn?”  A day in the life of a Dowser.

As a dowser one can be asked to dowse for a wide range of subjects and this talk explores a number of requests. The focus will be on the challenge of framing accurate dowsing questions; the ability to get one’s ego out of the way and be unattached to the outcome of one’s dowsing; and how having received a dowsing response we make sense of it either through some research or listening to the anecdotes of others involved with the subject.

Areas included will be dowsing for water; finding water courses and water mains; remanence of armies and historical characters; searching for graves on the American prairie; crop circles in North Dakota; locating and dating tunnels and their original use; moving on trapped souls and locating detrimental energies in a garden; working with psychic chords; planting out a garden using dowsing; changing energies in water; honouring Guardians of places; and, ‘losing’ your rods.

Tues. 11th September- Linda Prenter
Talk – Water Dowsing

Linda is interested in all aspects of dowsing, but water is so important for life and therefore her main focus at present. She has been working with Peter Golding, one of the top Water Diviners in the UK, as his apprentice for about 5 years and working as a team they have had many adventures together!

She has been dowsing since 2003 and is a part time professional Dowser, using it in her daily life as a very useful decision making tool, learning to trust her dowsing and stop worrying about what the future holds.

Tues. 9th October- Dr. Andrew Tresidder
Talk – ‘Biological Effects of Electromagnetic Fields on Health’

Electricity has made a phenomenal difference to our lives and technology can be wonderful, but many of us are almost addicted to our devices. However, current UK safety limits for Transmitting Technology (RF, Wi-fi, Microwave etc) are based solely upon six minute heating effects – not on any other proven biological effects. Elsewhere in the world it is a different picture. Many people sleep and feel better if they make simple changes to reduce the ‘electrosmog’ present in their houses and elsewhere. A few people can be severely affected (electro-sensitivity).

This talk will aim to inform you about some of the processes that happen, and give you information so that you can make informed choices.

Tues. 13th November       Maria Wheatley

Talk – subject to be decided
A return visit by this popular speaker and author. Details to follow later. See – for more info.

21st Century Dowsing

Dowsing has been used for thousands of years to locate water and minerals beneath the earth’s surface. Today dowsing is used by utility companies, the police, armies, mining and oil companies as well as by some health professionals. The proof of dowsing is in its results. It is a quick and accurate way of searching for things or accessing information.

We know dowsing works but when it comes to testing it, what does not work is the one size fits all scientific methodology which appears unsuited to assess the subtleties of the subjective dowsing experience when there is no “need to know”. Scientific discoveries in the fields of consciousness, intent, and the interconnectedness of everything as well as new discoveries in the field of quantum exploration, may soon provide a theoretical basis for dowsing.

Meanwhile dowsers are called on to help with archaeology, water leaks, clearing houses of unwanted energies, the health and well-being of both humans and animals and to find lost things.
