Past events, reports and stories

In this section you can read the introductions to the latest dowsing reports of past events as well as other adventures & stories related to shamanic dowsing. Although not widely accepted as 'scientific proof', dowsing can be a helpful tool to the study into consciousness. To show, by means of dowsing, how everything is related to each other through vibration - and to work intentionally with the consciousness of the physical world (and beyond) - may offer a beautiful glimpse into what has been widely forgotten; that everything is part of the whole in relation to us. I hope that the Shamanic Dowsing in service to the evolution of consciousness may begin to seed and cultivate the thought that we need to incorporate earth and all its life into our circle of interaction. Everything has a seat at the table of Life. Viewed in that way, the use of dowsing evolves on par with becoming more conscious.

Imbolc Bathing Ceremony & Drum Healing

A few impressions of the candlelit swimming pool and altar during the Imbolc Drum Healing & Bathing Ceremony in February 2016 at the Swimming Pool of Boswedden House, St Just in Penwith, Cape Cornwall, where we worked with Pure Water Consciousness and had some amazing dowsing results of changed energy fields. The most remarkable one being the complete energetic restoration of the swimming pool's water energy design at the spot where normally the chemicals were released into the pool. And of the few volunteers that were dowsed before they went into the water and after the ceremony, the results was an incredibel 3 to 6 times wider diameter energy field. Plus all the 'dents' in the circumference were gone. Every single one of them had enlarged and more balanced energy fields! It was so beautiful to find this 'healing' occured, just by inviting Pure Water Consciousness to step in!

Event's invite text:
It's the Aquarius new moon and Shamanic Dowsing would like to offer you a Imbolc-themed Drum Healing experience while you are being immersed in water. The wheel of the year is turning; winter is fading and Imbolc (Candlemas) has arrived. The saps in nature begin to rise. There is a stirring in the seeds underground; a throbbing rhythmic pulse that is growing louder and stronger now the Light is slowly returning. We are gently becoming more aware of our dream seeds and our focus is moving toward a preparation for the upcoming season of growth.

This magical 'Spark in the Dark, Raise your Inner Fire' experience is a unique mix of undergoing the transformational power of shamanic drumming and sacred ceremony while being immersed in water that is charged with intention. You will be either sitting, standing, floating or dancing in the water, to the sounding of two, sometimes interwoven, shamanic drum beats that, together with mantras sung, will invoke a sense of the re-kindling of your soul's passion and guide you through a gentle rebirth from the Dark of Winter into the Light of Spring. A sacred healing atmosphere will be created, allowing your body, mind and spirit to safely fall into sync with your natural rhythm. The idea behind the sacred ceremony is to provide you with that extra boost that will support you when you make your transition from the comfortable embrace of the wintery womb of the Great Mother into the intensifying light of Spring and prepare you for re-connection with the world. The drum healing can trigger a 'clean up' of old inner patterning and transmute it into the natural vibrational state of your true being. This way you are 'preparing the ground' for your Spring dream-seeds to safely land upon.

The sun and moon are both in Aquarius, making this point in cyclical time ideal to tune into your own unique core and bring forth your inner spark. The theme of the ceremony will have to
do with Brigid, Imbolc, the strengthening of the Inner Flame, and also with the lighting of your creative spark and with finding ways forward for your dreams. This is an ideal time to release old habits, behaviours and beliefs so to make a fresh start. You might want to bring a pen and paper to write down your inspiration after the ceremony.

The 'Spark in the Dark' part will start with exactly that, being immersed in almost complete darkness and a light, and we shall end with the 'Raising of your Inner Fire' and a candle lit swimming pool room. The shamanic drumming itself will be entirely facilitated so you can focus on the bathing experience & ceremony itself. Allow the rhythms to move through your body and let your body move the way it wants to. Its own intelligence will support the break up of old patterning and rebalance the sacred masculine and feminine within. The intentionally charged water will hold and support you as we move through the different stages of the drum & water ceremony.candlelit swimming pool 3 shamanic dowsing.jpg

As an extra gift of joy, and with the help of shamanic dowsing, we will show you how the water's consciousness and vitaly has changed before and after the ceremony. It is such an empowering experience to witness how nature reacts to the power of sound, conscious intent and sacred ceremony. We'll also show the same on three volunteers - before and after the ceremony.

Time schedule:

Arrival from 6:30pm. Two small dressing rooms are available (one for men, one for women). There are no lockers. Please, be in the pool by 6:55pm as we make a prompt start at 7pm.
Ceremony starts at 7pm. You will be in the swimming pool for the duration of the ceremony (1 hour). You can sit in the water at the stairs, stand in the water or use a float if you want to put your head backwards. The sound and intent of the drum healing will charge the water molecules in the room; that of the pool and in your body. You will be part of the sacred ceremony by performing one or more symbolic acts (water blessing, candle lighting etc). The pool room will be dimly lit at the beginning as it represents the dark of the womb of Winter and will grow lighter towards the end of the ceremony as we approach the birth into Spring.
Ceremony ends at 8pm. You could opt for an adjacent sauna session for a small additional fee of 4 GBP. There are only 7 sauna places.
