Important Update To Sound Dowsing Website

Print pagePDF pageEmail page

After almost two years since we published it, our website has been updated to include discussion of ‘Biocentrism’ a concept developed by Robert Lanza MD (a biologist and leading light in stem cell research) and the respected astronomer, Bob Berman. Nigel Twinn has also reviewed ‘Beyond Biocentrism’ a book jointly wrtten by these authors since we believe the ideas in it are very important indeed to any serious discussion of dowsing theory.

The link to NT’s review can be found under Latest News which is listed at the top of all Devon Dowsers’web pages. Our web site will now allow visitors’ comments and we look forward to receiving all of them, whether favourable or otherwise.

Book Review -Beyond Biocentrism

Beyond Biocentrism

Robert Lanza with Bob Berman BenBella Books

I somehow missed Biocentrism, the first book in this series, which came out in 2010, while I was enmeshed in finishing Hamish Miller’s biography. However, the sequel Beyond Biocentrism is crucial reading for anyone who wants more than a few pointers as to why dowsing might work. Read more

Discover Dowsing in Devon – First Workshop

Dowsing the Iron Age settlement of Berry Castle at Huntshaw will be the first of the “Discover Dowsing in Devon” Workshops and will take place on Saturday 24th June 2017. Places will be limited and further details will be posted soon. “Discover Dowsing in Devon” will be a series of on-site dowsing workshops run throughout the year and open to anyone interested in learning how to dowse archaeological sites; earth energies; ancient sites; or how to dowse for utilities and water. Workshops will be led by members of Devon Dowsers at different locations around Devon. They will be both informative and fun but could also leave you a little astonished at what you can discover by dowsing!

Gwynn Paulett - Chairman Devon Dowsers.
