The Art of Dowsing with Karen Demers

1:00 PM - 3:00 PM
A Wisdom Workshop Presented by the A.R.E. Bookstore & Gift Shop
Sunday, July 7, 2019
Virginia Beach , VA

Raymond C. Willey, one of the founders of the American Society of Dowsers, described dowsing as an “exercise of a human faculty, which allows one to obtain information in a manner beyond the scope and power of the standard human physical senses of sight, sound, touch, etc.”

Most people associate the term ‘dowsing’ with searching for water. However, modern dowsing has come to have a much broader interpretation – conducting a search for almost anything that is hidden from our view or knowledge. 

Today, one of the more common types of dowsing is for health. This kind of search can be broken down into two sections, as described by Cassandra Eason in The Art of the Pendulum: “Dowsing for the root of illness by passing a divining tool over the body to find the area that needs treatment; and dowsing for a remedy – using the tool to find out which of a selection of potentially appropriate herbs or medicines might best alleviate the problem.” 

Dowsers use tools to amplify subtle signals in their bodies. Learning to use your dowsing senses is like learning to use your eyes to distinguish the different colors, shapes, and plants in a garden. The pendulum is perhaps one of the most popular of dowsing tools, and will be the focus tool for this workshop, bring your favorite to class. If you don’t have one don’t worry, we will have some you can borrow for the workshop. 

During the workshop learn: 

  • Multiple practical techniques for working with dowsing as a tool.
  • The differences between types of pendulums – their strengths and weaknesses
  • Introduction of various dowsing tasks that can be used on a daily basis…intuition is like a muscle and needs practice!
  • Spiritual ethics…when is it not appropriate to dowse for someone
  • Selecting the tool that is the right one for the person and the task
  • Using a “witness” to make determinations in lieu of the person being physically present
