    Dartmoor's sacred allure - Peter Knight*

    We have an amazing selection of natural sacred sites on our own doorstep. We’re not talking man-made sites here, such as Stonehenge and Avebury. Highly sacred as they may be, there are literally hundreds of natural sacred sites, revered by man for centuries, but not created by him.

    Sacred Geometry Made Simple with Trish Mills

    Our own measurements were officially designated British Imperial Units in 1824, but they originated centuries before that as lengths based on our bodies. Metrication is based on an inaccurate calculation by the French and should never have happened!

  • The siege of Tyre

    The Phoenicians: their influence on ancient and modern culture - Liza Llewellyn*

    Several of our speakers lately have mentioned the Phoenicians in passing. They haven’t elaborated on it, probably because (like the rest of us) they don’t know much about them either.

  • Labyrinths in Arlingham

    Dowsing a Labyrinth at St Augustine’s Farm, Arlingham

    Being open to the public, and particularly to school groups who like to visit the animals, the camera obscura, display of old farming equipment and especially the cafe, St Augustine’s has a wealth of interesting things to see during a day out. Walking a labyrinth would add to the experience.

  • Hartmann and Curry ley lines

    The Hartmann and Curry Lines - Steve Dawson*

    Our planet earth is surrounded by a highly complex grid of energy lines, rather like a hair net. Actually, it’s more accurate to say two grids, the Hartmann and Curry Lines. But that's not all...

  • The Get Grubby Gang hits Slimbridge

    As part of the Gloucester Wildlife Watch, leader of The Grubby Gang, Val Box contacted us last January, and asked if we could show the Gang how to dowse. The Get Grubby Gang isn’t as formidable as it sounds. In fact, after they left, we all said, “What a super bunch of kids!”

    Bosnian Pyramids - Lorraine Doherty*

    If you search ‘Bosnian Pyramids’ on Wikipedia, their report is very sceptical, claiming they are just natural hills covered in vegetation, and the whole thing is a ‘cruel hoax’. Wikipedia seems to be a little out of date.
