All dowsers find various straight flows and currents when they are out in the field which is confusing. Nigel will discuss the difference, significance and even existence of many types of linear feature. Ley lines will be mentioned but there is much more to earth energy dowsing to discover.

DOWSING WATER AND UTILITIES – Saturday 27th October near Tiverton.  See Post below.

Dowsing tangible targets is a really important way to build confidence and accuracy with your dowsing.

Come along on the 27th October to Steve’s land near Tiverton, where there will be an opportunity to dowse for flowing water in a pipe, static water in a pipe, water leaks, sewage pipes, land drains, mole drains, armoured electric cable, and other electric cables.

You will also be able to dowse for shallow wells and dowse for a water source, which will mean searching for the most appropriate location to get potable water, to dowse the predicted yield, the pH, and depth of the blind springs.

Tea, coffee and biscuits will be provided but bring your own lunch and water. We can provide dowsing rods if you don’t have any.

Having attended the day you will be able to confidently find your own utilities, as well as those of friends should the need arise. You will also be able to locate water.

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

As the nights draw in and winter approaches, we can look back to 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 and under the Activities menu. We hope this will provide you with enjoyable memories and provide inspiration with your dowsing throughout the winter months.
