A very positive report on the British Society of Dowsers’ annual conference from Geoff Ward:
A new scientific investigation into how dowsing works should help to raise the profile of the British Society of Dowsers, its annual conference heard
Dowsing has moved a long way from the forked hazel twig and its traditional roots of water and minerals divining to tracing earth energies – its biggest growth area – improving health and well-being, locating archaeological remains and even to archaeo-astronomy.
Two hundred aficionados of the rods and pendulum attended the British Society of Dowsers 2010 conference at the Royal Agricultural College, Cirencester, Gloucestershire, at the weekend (September 10-12), travelling from all over the UK, and from the USA, Australia and Holland.
Founded in 1933, and now with more than 1,600 members, the society has moved with the times and, as the title of the conference, On the Right Lines, suggested, it is fully confident of its new directions since the 1990s.
