Toby’s Garden Festival at Powderham Castle 3 and 4 May 2019

Print pagePDF pageEmail page

The sun shone this year on both days, which made demonstrating dowsing to members of the public an enjoyable experience. I lost count of how many times I heard “Wow! I didn’t know it worked.” As always, the children who tried their hand got a dowsing reaction first try.

At both ends of the Devon Dowsers’ gazebo, there were conveniently placed water and energy lines to dowse, which was a relief as we were located in a pretty tight spot. This is a wonderful opportunity to talk to interested people about dowsing, what it can be used for, and the different dowsing tools available.

The Devon Dowsers shop sold out of 3.2 mm dowsing rods which proved very popular. There was a lot of interest in chakra pendulums as well as the crystals.

A big “thank you” to all Devon Dowser members who attended and helped to demonstrate dowsing, worked in the shop, as well as those who provided the pre-event organisation.

Powderham Castle in the sunshine is such a beautiful setting to share our ancient art.

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.
