Gosh, it’s been a while since I updated this blog, and here we are racing towards the equinox. Although I haven’t found time to update the blog regularly, that doesn’t mean I haven’t been busy!
It’s been an interesting start to the year, and I’ve been busy implementing new projects and preparing material for my forthcoming dowsing courses. I can now confirm that I will be presenting at both the Canadian Society of Questers’ Conference in Harrison Hot Springs, BC; and the Canadian Society of Dowsers’ Conference in Hamilton, ON, Canada during the month of May. At both events I shall be featuring a new full-day seminar ‘From the Mundane to the Arcane – the Geomancer’s Journey’, which will cover the modalities of working in both secular and sacred space. From the causes and treatment of geopathic stress right through to circular models of consciousness and shamanic cosmogony, with a touch of celestial mechanics and sacred geometry thrown in, this will be a very practical overview of the geomancer’s world-view and a great introduction to the subject.
At the Canadian Society of Questers’ Conference, I am also presenting a second full-day workshop on labyrinths, ‘Walking the Path’. This will feature construction of a temporary Classical 7-circuit labyrinth using dowsing and geomantic principles of alignment, which we can then use to explore ways of working with the transformational tool that is the labyrinth, culminating in a celebratory dance with ‘Gardner’s Double Appleton’. A great way to finish off the conference!
For the Canadian Society of Dowsers’ Conference, I shall be presenting the same full-day seminar ‘From the Mundane to the Arcane’, this time with a special emphasis on geomancy applications in agriculture to enhance crop yields. During the main Conference, I am presenting a talk on ‘Geomantic Paradigms and Spirit of Place’, which will explore the fundamental principles of geomancy with plenty of examples from my practice and sites around the world. May is going to be an exciting month, and of course I have plenty of time between the two conferences to explore and have adventures in Canada, which is a country I have not previously visited.
The other big news at the moment is that my new book ‘Dowsing Magic’ is due to be published in April by Penwith Press, who are best known for publishing the late Hamish Miller’s books and are now specialising in dowsing and related subjects. The book is the first in a series of short books that will build into a complete dowsing tutorial system. Needless to say, I’m very excited about the whole idea, and I’m delighted that it is being produced by such a prestigious name in the world of dowsing literature.
