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.

“Dowsing for One and All”

DFEST 2020 will take place at South Zeal, Devon, UK on the weekend of 13th/14th June.
With 2020 vision, we aim to build on the success of DFEST 2018.

Booking available from Spring 2020

South Zeal, is a beautiful village on the northern edge of Dartmoor in Devon. The festival will be a celebration of Dowsing that will be inspiring, fun and open to all, novices and experts alike. Children are also welcome as long as accompanied by a responsible adult.
You can come for one day or for the whole weekend. Talks and Workshops will take place in the Victory Hall and within the village, for those who choose not to venture further. Outings will visit fascinating ancient sites on North Dartmoor, local Holy Wells and sites where the Michael and Mary currents run. Learn from expert leaders, and professional dowsers.
Local accommodation is available as well as a camping field behind one of the two excellent village pubs. Further information will become available in the near future.
