Sunday 10 February 2019: Dowsing for Beginners

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


Sunday 3 March 2019: 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 learnt the basics of dowsing you might wish to progress to the Earth Energies' workshops.


Sunday 28 April 2019: Introduction to Earth Energies

For those who already have the basics of dowsing  

This workshop will explore 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.  This workshop will include a visit to a local stone circle.


Sunday 2 June 2019: Advanced Dowsing (covering Geopathic, Geopsychic and Technopathic Stress), (for dowsers already competent in earth energy dowsing)


Wednesday 17th and Thursday 18th July 2019: 2-day course at Embercombe, Higher Ashton, Devon


The energetics of place: dowsing at Embercombe

The theory and practice of dowsing: how to dowse for water; other underground concealed objects; archaeological remains; food sensitivities and earth energies.

Learn how to analyse different types of earth energies, how to recognise beneficial and non-beneficial locations and how to understand the basics of Geopathic stress and Geopyschic stress.  In addition, the challenges of Technopathic stress (electro-stress, WIFI etc) will be covered.

We will be dowsing in the gardens, meadows and at the stone circle of Embercombe's beautiful valley.

This is an exciting opportunity at a very special venue.  Residential or non-residential options available.  Please look at the website for more details, at all that Embercombe has to offer, and how to apply.

Beginners' workshop: dowsing outside the hall at Marazion




















For the Understanding Earth Energies' workshop we visited the ideal spot for dowsing practice, not far away at the wonderful Boscawen-ûn stone circle.




















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