Office now open - Mon, Wed and Fri 9am - 4pm


The British Society of Dowsers is the UK’s national organisation for dowsers and dowsing. Formed in 1933, it is the second-oldest dowsing society in the world.

The BSD exists to encourage the study and knowledge of dowsing in all its forms amongst members and the public. Membership of the Society is open to anyone interested in dowsing, regardless of ability. Dowsing can be used in health and well-being, home and garden, for water divining, archaeological searches, earth mysteries including energy lines and much, much more. It’s a great tool for enhancing your intuition and decision-making abilities.



The AGM 2020 took place via Zoom on Saturday 17th October 2020 at 11.00am.


We once again regret to inform you, that due to the coronavirus, we have no option but to postpone our Symposium arranged for 12 September. Not only are the current numbers for gatherings still restricted to a maximum of 30, but we have also been approached by some members who are still concerned about meeting others indoors during this unprecedented time. If you have already booked, your place will automatically be transferred to March 2021.

We have now decided to rearrange and make it a 2-day event on March 20th and 21st next year at the same venue, Worcester Racecourse Conference Centre. A new programme and revised pricing will be circulated in due course.

When the programme has been confirmed, the office will contact everyone who has already booked to allocate the day of your choice, either Saturday 20th or Sunday 21st March. You will also have the option to book for the extra day. We appreciate your support during these difficult times and would ask you to transfer your booking rather than request a refund.

We thank you for your understanding and support.

'Helping Hands...' to help you gain a greater audience

Have you heard of our new scheme ‘Helping Hands…’? We aim to promote the workshops and events of individuals who feel they have something to offer the world but struggle to make an impact. As an individual it can be both arduous and time consuming to develop mailing lists, a website and strong social media presence, not to mention e-commerce systems!

The BSD is committed to promoting dowsing and we are delighted to announce this new collaborative scheme to help raise the profile of dowsing, talented people like yourself and the Society.

Whilst some training and events will focus solely on dowsing, and its role in conjunction with other modalities, others may focus on contemporary topics that we hope will appeal to an ever growing community who embrace a more holistic sustainable way of living on our beautiful planet. We aim to provide a platform for inspiring speakers and presenters who will enable our audience to open up their awareness to the many ways we can help co-create health and well-being on every level.
