 NEWSLETTER – November 2018

 Greetings fellow dowsers!

 The winter season is progressing well, with another fascinating talk, this time by the very experienced Penwith-based dowser, John Moss, relating the history and characters of the dowsing world west of the Hayle Estuary.  It was another well-attended event, so we must be doing something right.  See attached write-up. 

It was doubly pleasing to see Denise Lockwood, who will be taking over the lead role of the Tamar Dowsers in the New Year, looking surprisingly sprightly for someone with a brand new knee. 

My last event as front-of-house will be the presentation by Andy Burnham, entitled The Old Stones.  This recently published, and dowsing-friendly work, has been sending out ripples in its field, being both a state-of-the-discipline compendium of megalithic sites and also taking a more nuanced approach to the non-physical environment.  Looking for something a bit different to give to your alternative friends this coming Solstice?  I am sure Andy will be bringing along his books, and will be available to sign them at North Hill Village Hall on Sunday December 9th.  Book Review from the Internet: ‘The most comprehensive and thought-provoking field guide ever published to the iconic standing stones and prehistoric places of Britain and Ireland.  This ultimate insiders’ guide gives unparalleled insight into where to find prehistoric sites and how to understand them, by drawing on the knowledge, expertise and passion of the archaeologists, theorists, photographers and stones aficionados who contribute to the world’s biggest megalithic website – the Megalithic Portal.’ 

For the January event, Denise has signed up Sue Edwards and Alan Jones (we have had a couple of excellent presentations by Alan in previous years) to give a talk on Pagans, witches and heathens amongst us.‘The terms Pagan, Witch and Heathen have been used in the past as terms of derision especially within certain religious groups. However, nowadays, they are used to define a particular spiritual path – one that is generally nature-based, broadly animistic and could be seen as being close to the earliest forms of religion. This talk will explore who these people are, what beliefs they share and why many of their practices have a relevance in the 21st Century.’ 

We also have Adrian Incledon-Webber coming back to speak to us on Sunday 17thMarch. His new book, Spirit and Earth, written with fellow Hamish Miller acolyte, Tim Walter, will doubtless form the basis of his presentation.  

I gave a talk to the Devon Dowsers last week, standing in for Maria Wheatley, who was unavailable at the last minute.  The subject was The Linear Landscape- and I agreed to do a workshop around it in 2019 – so hopefully that will be a joint TDs/DDs event (and preferably on a nice day in the summer!). 

In the meantime – hope to see you all again soon.                                               Nigel
