Social Medium with Karen Teague* Everybody’s favourite Medium.

I know it’s a cliche, but Karen Teague genuinely needs no introduction. She amazed and delighted us with the remarkable accuracy of her mediumship in 2016 and 2017, and now returns for a third visit.

Karen was discovered when a mutual friend introduced her to Trish Mills in order to publish her book. As part of the fee, Trish asked for a private reading, which almost knocked her socks off! Other members say their lives have been changed since receiving messages from loved ones through Karen.

My awakening Journey with Spirit, history and my home - Paul Syrett

Paul Syrett was recently elected Chair of Slimbridge Dowsing Group having only been a member for a short time. It just seemed like the right thing. This has been a common theme in Paul’s life over a long career working in IT, dealing with serious health issues and more than his fair share of near death experiences. Paul lives with his partner Suzanne, six of their children, three dogs and their lodger Tim who has played a significant role in Paul’s current and past lives.

Their home is central to the tale of an ordinary bloke who has experienced some very extraordinary things. The house was built more than 1,000 years ago on sacred land and the site of ancient stone circles and both Paul and the house have links with Merlin and Arthur.

Connections of people and place feature in a tale of dowsing, elemental beings, faeries and goddesses. There are lessons in history and some interesting new discoveries.

This talk is about a journey of healing and self-discovery which highlights those connections which form the fabric of our everyday lives and offers insights into the way in which our world is changing every day, especially if we open our eyes and our minds to appreciate it.

The Song of the Tarot the Romany Way with Maria Wheatley*

Tarot is a great tool for spiritual self-development and it can accurately predict future cycles and events. Over 30 years ago, I was taught the Romany Way of reading the Tarot, which is called the Song of the Tarot. I have developed the Song and you will be amazed at how rhythmic and easy it is to understand the meaning of the cards, which portray a psychology and spiritual meaning.

Like looking into a mirror, the cards reflect the inner dynamics of a person; how they are thinking and feeling. Outer dynamics, such as family, relationships and work are also revealed, giving a holistic understanding and insight into a person’s life.

Future cycles and events are hinted at so that we can work with the energies to manifest the future. Tarot is a Seer’s portal into the past, present and future, allowing us to grow and develop at all levels. Embracing the guidance that tarot offers is to flow with the unseen and ever-present universal energies that guide our soul’s development.

Dowsing For Past Lives with Diane Holliday* Our erstwhile Chairman returns with a fascinating talk

Does our soul move on to a new life when we die? If so, how do we know if WE have been here before? We can use dowsing to ask the questions, but of course, we know we only get decent answers when we ask the right questions. Today we will attempt to do just that...

In this talk we will look at the religious and cultural backgrounds of reincarnation; some that think we may have had past lives, those that ‘know’ we have had past lives and others that consider our souls go to rest in heaven for ever.

Bards of Avalon - Dowsing each other before and after a Sound Bath!

Bea and David have been working together with sound since 2003, offering therapeutic sound baths that allow participants to sleep better, have reduced pain and an increased feeling of wellbeing.

In this highly experiential session, they will show how dowsing can be used to measure the effects of sound on the human energy field, first offering a therapeutic sound bath using vocal harmonies, gongs, Himalayan bowls and other percussion instruments.

Then we will use tuning forks on each other, and dowse to measure changes in wellbeing and auric fields. We will end with a discussion to review the results.

Saturday 28th April

Barry Goldring, Elaine Clements and Steve Sanderson - Dowsing the haunted Ram Inn in the UK for spirits & tunnels

The Ram Inn at Wotton-under-Edge was a medieval coaching inn, reputedly the most haunted Inn in the country. We first visited in 2008 and, more recently, Caroline Wallis the current owner asked four of us to find a long-lost tunnel leading to the local church, which we duly did. Trish took the opportunity to ask for another visit for the Group. Read our report from 2011

Please arrive between 10.00 –10.30 a.m. when we will separate the Spirit dowsers (led by Elaine and Steve) from the Archaeological Dowsers (led by Barry). There is a loo (if you can find it!) but no refreshments. For those who like some midmorning lubrication I suggest you bring your own or visit one of the local cafes before arrival. Directions Coming from Dursley on the B4058, at the roundabout (its actually triangular!) take the first exit (Potters Pond), pass the first two turnings on your right (quite close together); The Ram Inn is second building on the right, and a car park just beyond. If full, use the public car park just before it. For those who must use a SATNAV, the post code is GL12 7HF.

Barbara Davis - Dowsing our local Church

This is a chance to do some practical dowsing at St James Church, Dursley, with their kind permission. We will try some archaeological dowsing first, to investigate the origins of the church, e.g. was there a henge on this site? We will also seek energy lines including leys and their influence. Please bring rods and pendulums, some will be provided. We can also investigate pagan influences in church architecture. Note parking in Sainsbury’s is limited to three hours so meet at 2pm outside the Church.

Saturday 26th May

Archaeological Dowsing at St Augustine’s Farm, Arlingham with Barry Goldring

With kind permission of Rob and Elaine Jewell, we continue our exploration of this interesting site – an opportunity for less experienced dowsers to practise archaeological dowsing alongside the more experienced. We can also dowse the labyrinth. We will have lots of kit to share – marker flags, quivers, GPS receivers, pacing sticks, rods and pendulums. And at the AGM in November you will be able to admire the finished results. Arrive 10.00–10.30am for drinks and briefing, then off to the fields! Red Lion for lunch, or bring sandwiches. A few of us may want to do more dowsing or recording after lunch.

Directions Leave A38 signposted Frampton-on-Severn, follow brown signs to St. Augustine’s Farm. Cross the canal, keep left to Arlingham. Pass the Red Lion, after 100m turn right into St. Augustine’s car park. Walk along to the wooden building that houses the loos and cafe.

Colin Parker* - How to read Stonehenge

This fascinating and ground-breaking new book by Colin Parker really does lift the veil on the mystery of the purpose of the Stones. Using the ‘Architects Double-Doorways Visual Key’ hidden within the stones, Colin unlocks the purpose of this ancient site and how it should be used. Revealing Stonehenge to be much more than a religious temple, the author visually demonstrates how to read the stones standing today after sunrise and before sunset.
