About this site

Welcome to Devon Dowsers’ website. It’s a little different from before, so we hope that a (very) few words of introduction might be helpful.

The site is built with WordPress, a free software program that started out as an easy means to set up personal Blogs – shorthand for weBLogs –  which are something like online diaries. Since then, WordPress has grown into a very sophisticated website building device with increasing capabilities.

WordPress works by dividing its content between fixed pages (like this one) and a different format called posts. Most of this website now consists of pages. Two of our pages, listed under Dowsing – Dowsing specialisms are Earth Energies and Archaeology. Each Dowsing specialisms page lists articles in alphabetical order by title to make finding your way around much easier. Click on the title you are interested in, and you will find a pdf to read. You will only find posts under News and Our most recent posts. Posts can have  a very wide range of subject matter, and are one way of giving you our latest news. If you choose to subscribe to this website – and we hope you will – you will receive an email to tell you each time a new post has been published on the website, keeping you up to date.

A couple of other aspects of both pages and posts are also interesting.  As well as text they can include pictures, links to other articles or websites, sound clips and even short video films. We welcome any contributions to this website, so if you have any photos or writing you would like to add, please contact us.

Besides this website, we hope you will visit our Facebook and Instagram pages. These contain interesting photos, news of new additions to website, reports on Devon Dowsers events such as our talks and field trips, and information about other events that might interest you. Members of Devon Dowsers are invited to join the Members’ Only Forum  on our Facebook page. The aim of this closed group is to provide a safe place for members of Devon Dowsers and invited specialist dowsers to share, safely and without judgement from others, anything they want to share related to dowsing.

The easiest way to get to know this website is simply to explore it for yourselves. You will see that you can alter the text size by clicking  one of the blue zoom widget buttons at the top right of each page. We have tried to make exploring the site as easy as we can, so we hope you will enjoy  much/most/even all of  what you find.

Thinking of joining Devon Dowsers?

Dowsing is a means of searching, not using our normal senses, and can be done on site as well as remotely (e.g. map and information dowsing). It is an ethical activity used for the greater good. Devon Dowsers welcomes those who have a fascination for this ancient art, and who wish to share their experiences with other open-minded members.

We always welcome new members, so please see our current programme  and come to a meeting to check us out. To learn more,  get in touch through our contact form. We’d love to hear from you.

DFEST

23 & 24 June 2018

South Zeal, Devon

We can look back to last June’s sunshine and reflect on the success of DFest, the first South West Dowsing Festival. Over 100 people attended and used the evaluation form to share how much they had enjoyed the weekend. It was a chance to dowse at some of Dartmoor’s iconic sites, to listen to engaging speakers, and to attend fascinating Dowsing Workshops.

A digital souvenir report is available HERE. We hope this report will provide you with enjoyable memories and provide inspiration for your dowsing throughout the months ahead.
