Beyond Hope in Rambo Country

At the Canadian Society of Questers’ Conference in Harrison Hot Springs, British Columbia at the beginning of May, Conference organiser Merlin Beltain told a tale over breakfast one day about a strong energy vortex that, as far as I could gather, was somewhere in the vicinity (bear in mind that my geographic knowledge of BC was rudimentary at best at this point). It seemed to be centred on a river valley where some old disused railway tunnels were carved through the mountain and, said Merlin, the tunnels contained a ‘time portal’. Needless to say, this was a fascinating topic of … Continue reading Beyond Hope in Rambo Country

International Dowsing Day May 5

The British Society of Dowsers has proposed that 5 May (birthday of the late dowser Hamish Miller) be declared ‘International Dowsing Day’ as an annual event, with the aim of promoting dowsing to the public. Several local affiliated groups are planning events or site visits around the UK, and the idea has also been picked up enthusiastically by several international groups, including the Canadian Society of Dowsers, The American Society of Dowsers, and the Australian Society of Dowsers. In the UK, the Earth Singers group are planning to visit as many nodes of the Michael & Mary lines as possible … Continue reading International Dowsing Day May 5

Springing Forward

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 … Continue reading Springing Forward

Solstice Blessings

Whatever your faith, religious, spiritual or cultural beliefs; the turning of the wheel at the dark of the year will carry some significance for you. This year has been particularly turbulent for many people around the globe, and it’s always good to reflect on those less fortunate than ourselves at this time of year. War, natural disasters, famine and other upheavals continue to remind us what a fragile jewel our planet Earth is. It is easy to get depressed about the state of things, but it is harder to acknowledge that the best approach is for us to keep on … Continue reading Solstice Blessings

Gardner’s Double Appleton

Labyrinthine revelations… a gift from Troy Farm. A version of this article was published in The Labyrinth Society’s publication ‘Labyrinth Pathways’ no. 5, Sept. 2011 I have long been a fan of the Appleton labyrinth dance ‘discovered’ by Jon Appleton and popularised ever since at almost every meeting of labyrinth aficionados (if you don’t know what an ‘Appleton’ is, click here for instructions). Recently I had the privilege of having the 15-circuit Classical Troy Farm labyrinth near Somerton to play in for the weekend with a group of students on a course I was teaching for the British Society of … Continue reading Gardner’s Double Appleton

Dowsing Belinus

The Belinus Line is a long-distance alignment, similar to the Michael Line, running the length of the UK from the Isle of Wight up to Inverhope on the north coast of Scotland, passing through Winchester, Birmingham, Manchester, Carlisle, Dunfermline, Pitlochry and Lairg on the way. Like the Michael Line, it has twin male and female serpentine energy currents weaving around the straight line and connecting many ancient sites. Gary Biltcliffe has been researching this alignment for around 20 years now, and his book documenting his odyssey is almost completed. Have a look at his website for more information. Gary and … Continue reading Dowsing Belinus

“Is it like Feng-Shui?”

An article published in the Spring 2011 issue of the WHG magazine. That’s probably the most common question I get asked when trying to explain what geomancy is. It’s also the easiest explanation for most people to grasp.  I can say, “Geomancy is the art of placing structures upon the Earth so that they are in harmony with the telluric energies”; or perhaps, “Geomancy is the art of designing and constructing spaces that enhance our connection to spirit”; but few people can understand what it’s about until you mention that it’s ‘like Western Feng-Shui’. Western geomancy is based on three … Continue reading “Is it like Feng-Shui?”
