What We Do What is Dowsing?
The art of discovering the presence of energies, substances, objects or missing persons or things not apparent to the senses, usually by using rods, pendulums, etc. Dowsing can also be carried out without the use of tools. This is called device-less dowsing.
Dowsing is generally divided into three categories: physical or site dowsing, map or distance dowsing and information dowsing. The word “dowsing” derives from medieval German (da sein) which means ‘it is there’; its first recorded use was by John Lock in 1692. It is sometimes taken as equivalent to Divining, but the two terms are not completely synonymous.
