INTERNATIONAL DOWSING DAY – Saturday 5th May 2018

Print pagePDF pageEmail page

INTERNATIONAL DOWSING DAY

at SHOBROOKE HOLY WELL & CADBURY CASTLE              

Saturday 5th May 2018

In line with other dowsing groups in the south west, this year we are celebrating Holy Wells as well as the Mary Michael Earth Energy Lines. Shobrooke Holy Well has been chosen due to its proximity to Cadbury Castle and ease of access. The church warden Rosemary is very happy for us to dress the Well and is interested in finding our dowsing results for the source of the water.

Cadbury Castle is an Iron Age Hill Fort, with clearly visible defensive earth ramparts covered in bluebells, and great views! It may have been used by the Saxons as a ‘moot’ meeting place and was later occupied by parliamentarian troops during the Civil War for the siege of Bickleigh Castle in 1644. Local legend has it that a dragon guards treasure buried in the fort!

A third century Roman ritual shaft or Well was found during excavation, filled with stuff from a nearby Bronze Age Barrow, but its exact location has now been lost.

The Michael Earth Energy Line passes right across the site. The Mary and Michael Ley Line, around which the two energy lines twist like serpents, is in direct alignment with the rising sun at Beltane, at the beginning of May.

In connection with other dowsing groups across the southwest we plan to ‘energise’ the Michael Line through dance, singing and generally having a good time. We will be joined by members of the Dance of the Directions community who will dance connecting earth and sky, and the four directions of the compass.

We intend to dowse for Michael, the ritual shaft, maybe a Well, stories about people who lived there, the Bronze Age barrow and lots of other stuff! And maybe talk to the guardian dragon – if she wants to chat!

Proposed programme of activities

11.30am Meet at Shobrooke Holy Well for dowsing energies and the water source and Well dressing ceremony. Please bring flowers if you are called to do so.

12.30pm Meet at Cadbury Castle and dowse the Michael Line and mark out its width and measure its strength.

1pm to say 3pm                               Have a picnic

Perform the Dance of the Directions

Play of instruments (any musicians out there?)

Drum

Sing – especially the Mary & Michael Chant by Danu Fox  U-Tube

Link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pUFvcZta8xU. Any earth singers amongst us?

After completion of ‘activities’ dowse for any changes to the Line.

Later in the afternoon                   Dowsing other features around Cadbury

Just enjoy this beautiful place and the bluebells!

DIRECTIONS

Shobrooke is signed off the A3072 on the road from Crediton to Bickleigh/Tiverton just outside Crediton, and the Holy Well is located very near to the church (which is not in the village!).  Park by the church and walk up Church Lane opposite in the direction of the village. The Well is a few hundred metres away from the church set into the roadside bank.

Cadbury Castle is signed off the A3072 further along the road between Crediton and Bickleigh/Tiverton. It is signed off the main road on the right hand side. The path up to the castle is about 1/2 mile off the main road. Go past the church, and there is limited parking in a lay-by shortly after a bend in the road – where the signed footpath to the castle starts. It is about a 10 minute (gently climbing) walk up to the castle.  There is parking on the road by the church, which is only a short walk to the start of the path up to the castle.

                                                   Evidence for Past Lives, and How Dowsing Techniques Help in Verification                                         The presentation will cover the current evidence for reincarnation, as documented in the work of academics and researchers, and also in the world’s belief systems. The information will be conveyed in lively, summary form using Powerpoint and verbal anecdotes. The talk also includes an explanation and demonstration of how ‘hand dowsing’ is used for verification in ‘deep trance’ states when past lives are uncovered.

Coldridge Fair 2016

Print pagePDF pageEmail page

Coldridge was a “hot” ridge when five of us shared the Devon Dowsers stand at the annual fair on the 2nd July 2016. Sally had thoughtfully arranged a sturdy gazebo to shelter from the odd shower and the sun, which benefited both ourselves and her dance troop who were colourfully dancing inside the arena.
