Devon Dowsers is committed to creating a number of learning opportunities for both members and non-members. As with most things in life, we enhance our skills if we continue to learn and put what we learn into practice.


Each year we attend a number of events hosted by other organisations in Devon, such as Toby Buckland’s Garden Festival, Finch Foundry Rural Craft day and Lightfest. We demonstrate how to dowse to members of the public attending, who can also try their hand at dowsing.


We have eight talks a year, starting in September through to May. These are free to members and £5.00 for non-members. We engage speakers across a wide range of subjects which usually have a dowsing element to them. We meet on the second Tuesday of the month at 7.30 pm at the Red Lion, Chumleigh, Devon, EX18 7DD.


Devon Dowsers run two “Introduction to dowsing courses” each year: one in the spring and one in the autumn. One course will be held  at Spreyton, Devon, and one in Ashburton, South Devon from 2019. At the end of the day-long course, you will know the ethics of dowsing, why we need to ask for permission and protection and how to do this, and you will have the opportunity to use dowsing tools such as L rods and a pendulum to dowse for both tangible targets (such as drain pipes and water mains) and intangible targets (such as earth energies and auras). There is a £30 charge.

In addition, we are introducing “enhanced” dowsing courses in 2019, where some more advanced skills can be developed.


Two types of workshops are run. There are no charges to members for the “Discover Dowsing in Devon” workshops, which are led by our own members on specialist subjects like water and utilities, ancient sites and earth energies, as these take place out of doors. However, please bear in mind that attendance at Devon Dowsers outdoor events, for both members and non-members, is at your own risk.

We charge £30 for workshops led by professional dowsers or specialists, and these usually take place in a hired hall. Workshop topics in 2019 include Colour Healing and Animal Communication and Healing.

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.

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.
