The Foundation Course in Dowsing

An ancient technique to determine your truth

Register Here: Members | Non-Members

Your instructors will share their knowledge of the art and science of dowsing so that you can fully participate in this ancient means of knowing. Many of us dowse to find lost objects, keys, pets, and other personal items. Some of us are also called upon to dowse for water, oil, and minerals. We use dowsing to get answers to “yes and no” questions, to help us navigate our future and to make decisions.

The goal of this class is for you to learn the “Foundation” of dowsing and give you the hands on practice you need so that dowsing becomes a part of you.

Course materials will be included. Your kit will include: pendulum, Y-Rod, L-Rod, Bobber, and the Foundation Course Manual (which contains a wealth of information about dowsing).

You will learn how to:
– Use the four basic dowsing tools included in your kit
– Properly prepare yourself to dowse
– Ask valid questions to receive answers

You will be coached by seasoned dowsers in small groups and given individualized attention. We will answer your questions, share a few dowsing stories, laughs, and experiences.  

At the end of a fun and fast paced learning day when the course is completed, you will have the skills, knowledge, basic tools, and confidence you will need to continue your dowsing journey and further studies.

You will receive your certificate as a reminder of your achievements.
