If you are interested please email John: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.


The following courses/workshops are normally available:


Dowsing for Beginners (1-day)

This workshop provides a good grounding in dowsing, including techniques, ethics, philosophy and personal protection. You will be able to understand the nature of dowsing, use basic dowsing tools and apply them; understand how to dowse for water; concealed or missing objects; archaeology; earth energies and health.  Consideration will be given to ethics and personal protection.


Dowsing for Health  

For those who already have the basics of dowsing.  An invaluable day if you are a complementary therapist or a keen amateur.  Developing your dowsing skills may enable you to recognise changes that could be made in your lifestyle, potential health problems, and identify possible treatment options and adjustments to diet. 

Please note that this is not a healing course and none of the content is intended to replace advice given by a qualified health professional.  


If you have completed a Beginners' workshop, have practised the techniques, or are already able to dowse with rods and pendulum, you might wish to progress to the following workshops/courses:


Introduction to Earth Energies (1-day)

Through an exploration of the nature and scope of dowsing earth energies, analysing the energies running across the land,we will discover how to interact with them, how to identify whether they are beneficial to the individual and how to apply dowsing techniques to connect with the 'Genus Loci' - the protective Spirit of Place. 

Where possible, this workshop will include a visit to a local stone circle.


Further steps into dowsing (2-day course)

Learn how to analyse different types of earth energies, how to recognise beneficial and non-beneficial and healthy sites for living and working.  You will be able to identify geomantic problems, Geopathic stress and Geopsychic stess.  In addition, the challenges of Technopathic stress (electro-stress, WIFI etc) will be covered and, working on the principle of shield, ration and/or avoid, possible solutions discussed and demonstrated.

Scorhill Circle, just a couple of miles from Gidleigh, Devon, made the perfect location for this Earth Energies' workshop.  We've never known Dartmoor to be so hot as that weekend!
