About Devon Dowsers

Devon Dowsers was formed in late 1992 when John Bowers was teaching introductory ‘Dowsing for Beginners’ classes at Chulmleigh, South Molton and Okehampton Community Colleges which were proving very popular.

It was after one of these that John Down, who attended the South Molton class, suggested that it might be a good idea if there was some sort of follow up so people could meet and practise together afterwards.

So he, John Bowers, John Lott and Michelle Boyd decided to form the Devon Dowsers and the response was overwhelming. Over forty people attended the classes at Okehampton which boosted the membership a lot. The early meetings’ speakers included Donovan the Diviner, and David Crow who ran the Henge bookshop at Avebury. The first AGM was held in November 1993.

They continued to meet at the South Molton and Okehampton Community Colleges for some time before moving to the Fox and Hounds at Eggesford. In 2014 it was decided to relocate to the Red Lion Hotel at Chulmleigh.

In 1993 the first magazine, Devon Dowsers News, was published with John Lott as Editor. This included a competition for the Society’s logo, and details of the first all day field trip to Avebury in September 1993 which forty seven people attended.

The library was started with over forty books on Dowsing and related subjects which members could borrow; also Dee Dee Divine’s shop with pendulums, Mager Rosettes, rods and other relevant items for sale.

At one point in its history Devon Dowsers was the largest dowsing society in the country with over 200 members.

“Riding the Dragons of Devon”

 A talk by Sean Ferris

Ashburton Town Hall, TQ13 7QQ, Sunday 29th September 2019 at 2.00pm

Sean will be talking about his long-standing conversations with “Dragons”, (Earth energy currents like the Michael and Mary lines). He sees these as rivers of consciousness, which influence evolution by carrying myth, and legend, whilst helping to shape human behaviour.

 

Sean argues that Devon can been seen as an extraordinary nest of Dragons, which has world-renowned legends such as Arthur and the Grail associated with it, and whose energies have influenced famous characters in history as well as past Kings and Queens.

 

He will provide a unique analysis of the influence these Dragons have had on creative centres such as Dartington Hall, and the town of Totnes, with new mapping information which reveals the real power of these sites, never seen before. Find out more
