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 last AGM 2020 took place via Zoom on Saturday 17th October 2020. The next one will be held at the forthcoming Symposium.


Unfortunately due to the coronavirus, the Symposium had to be postponed. We now propose to hold a two day Conference on the weekend of 2nd and 3rd October 2021 at the same venue, Worcester Racecourse Conference Centre. This will also incorporate our Annual General Meeting. 

If you have already booked  for the Symposium, your place will automatically be transferred to the October event.  When the programme has been confirmed, the office will contact everyone who has already booked for you to allocate the day of your choice, either Saturday 2nd or Sunday 3rd October. You will also have the option to book for the extra day

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.

An example of the scheme in action is Rory Duff’s Awareness & Dowsing Courses in Bath.
