TORONTO DOWSERS  FALL 2005 SPEAKERS:
SEPTEMBER  OCTOBER NOVEMBER

THE   Tuesday, September 13th 2005  MEETING FEATURES::

Ursula Fugger,
President of Astrology Toronto Inc.
"Astrology, Dowsing and the Art of Divination and Sacred Time or What was that Question you asked?"

Many people who know the rudiments of Astrology and realize its value as a tool for assessment and for seeing a probable path for themselves, friends, family, business, countries, etc., can not find the time to learn enough of its intricacies to get to its important nuances.   Tonight's presentation can help you use your skill --- Dowsing --- to augment whatever knowledge of Astrology you already have.

This presentation shall show you:
         Horary Astrology What it is and why it is  The Astrological Dowsing Tool  . .
As the Stepping Stone to use Dowsing to Interpret your Natal (Birth) Chart and . . .
         The similarities and differences particular to the use of asking questions within the notion of Sacred Time

She will provide us with:
-   A brief  overview of Astrology - Where did it come from?
-   Show how Horary astrology and dowsing are related through the notion of  a sacred time and right question of the moment
-   A quick overview of: Planets, Signs,  Houses and aspects as they pertain to Divination of a question.

Any person who has had an explanation of their Natal horoscope can see the value of it as a tool for personal guidance.   However, one may seldom realize that there are many branches to the tree called Astrology.   Tonight's presentation will be about a branch called Horary Astrology.  It is the astrological method most like dowsing as it answers a specific question by examining the moment of the question.  As a Dowser, you already know the importance of asking accurate questions.  With this branch of Astrology Ursula will take it a step further, to show and explain with handouts, visuals and personal stories some of the techniques she uses in her practice.

Horary is very ancient branch of Astrology.   It deals with specific questions and replies with specific answers.   The basis of the horary chart is the time your question is put to the astrologer, and from this a map of the sky is erected.   Personal details, such as your date, place and time of birth, are not needed.

Horary astrology is different in another way. The chart that is calculated is for that question only and will show the background of the question (what led up to the question) what is going on at the present time and how the future could turn out if you let nature run it's course.   If the chart shows potential problems we can choose not to continue or choose to do something in a different way which can give us a different outcome.

"Horary is my left hand, my Natal Chart is my right hand.   And they are attached  to the same body.  Dowsing is the bridge that joins them.    A chart is a pattern of energy.    Its a mandala."

Using the Horary as a bridge to the Natal (birth chart)  she will show you:  "What your houses, etc.,  of the Birth (Natal) chart mean and how to divine their meaning through dowsing.

Using concrete examples Ursula will show you Personal techniques and share personal stories how to utilize both of these arts so they complement and enhance one another.

Ursula is excellent when it comes to finding lost objects, lost people.  She uses Astrology, then confirms it with Dowsing.  She will tell and show us how she does this.

 *!*  BRING YOUR PENDULUMS.  AND, A NATAL CHART, IF YOU HAVE ONE *!*

OCTOBER 11th:   MAGDA HAVAS 
 B.Sc., Ph.D., Associate Professor of Environmental and Resource Studies at Trent University
Earth Energy, Life Energy, and Techno Energy Interactions:
How is electrical technology affecting life on our planet?
It's a Shocker!

Do you remember our December 2004 and January 2005 newsletters that featured articles on the dangers of cell phones and an alert about increased deaths from brain tumors, brain cancer?  Those were included because of the death of my cousin from rapid brain cancer -- and the awareness that the numbers are increasing alarmingly.

Earlier, our  JUNE 2003  newsletter had an article on Electro Magnetic field levels for power lines and the impact on health (Electrohypersensitivity)..  Search for:  "Shocking".   This article was written by Magda Havas, our October speaker.

Magda Havas, B.Sc., Ph.D., Associate Professor of Environmental and Resource Studies at Trent University where she teaches and does research on environmental pollutants currently researches the biological effects of low frequency electromagnetic fields and radio frequency radiation and is the only person in North America to teach a university level course on this subject.

Organisms live in a delicate balance with their environment and are exposed to natural and man-made sources of energy.  Electromagnetic energy can be classified into three categories based on its source:  techno energy, earth energy, and life energy.  Public concern is focused on electromagnetic energy generated by our technology and includes radiation and fields produced by power distribution networks, computers, microwave ovens, cell phones, wireless communication antennas, and satellite communication systems worldwide.  Techno energy is increasing and a key question that needs to be addressed is:  “Is this energy benign?”

Living organisms are also exposed to and affected by naturally produced energy fields generated by the earth, the sun, and the rest of the cosmos (earth energy).  Earth energy may fluctuate unpredictably (solar eruptions), it may be cyclic (diurnal, seasonal), or relatively stable (earth’s magnetic field) and it may have electric and/or magnetic properties.  Ley lines and other forms of earth energy have been described since ancient times.

The third form of energy is generated by all living organisms during metabolic activity, (life energy).  Life energy tends to be much weaker than either earth energy or techno energy but can be measured and has been used to monitor metabolic activity and to diagnose ill health (ECG, MCG,  EEG).  Some use biological energy to restore energy imbalance and to heal (therapeutic touch, reiki, acupressure).

These three forms of energy interact and it is these interactions that most interest us.  The areas of current concern are the interactions between living organisms and technologically generated fields at frequencies from 16 cycles per second to billions of cycles per second.   An overview of the science as it relates to wireless technology (cell phones), dirty electricity, electric and magnetic fields as well as ground currents will be presented with suggestions on how individuals can minimize their exposure to these ever increasing forms of technologically generated energy.

Come and find out more about detection and correction of these energies.

Background:
Magda Havas is an Associate Professor of Environmental & Resource Studies at Trent University (Peterborough, Ontario, Canada).  She received her Ph.D. at the University of Toronto in 1980 where she trained as a biologist, ecologist and environmental toxicologist.  She completed two years Post Doctoral Research at Cornell University with Professor Gene Likens and then returned to Canada and worked as an Assistant Professor at the University of Toronto and later as an Associate Professor at Trent University.  She has served as a member of the Mayor’s Committee on Sustainable Development; as a science advisor to CBC; as a member of the Emerging Issues Subcommittee of the International Joint Commission (Canada/US); as a member  of the Environmental Appeal Board of Ontario (Ministry of the Environment); and as an advisor to Tribhuvan University in Nepal on their Environmental Sciences Program.  At Trent University she has served on the Board of Governors and on Senate (the two key bodies responsible for university governance).  She is a member of the Health Research Group and founder and past Chair of the Energy Working Group which consists of physicians, alternative health care practitioners, environmental scientists, biologists, physicists, and electricians who are interested in the biological effects of energy fields from natural and man-made sources.

Her expertise is on the biological and environmental effects of environmental contaminants.  She has worked on acid rain, metal pollution, drinking water quality and more recently electromagnetic fields.  For the past 15 years she has taught a course on Pollution Ecology which deals with the environmental and health effects of chemical pollutants (asbestos, metals, chlorinated organics, hydrocarbons, air pollution, water pollution, among others) and for the past 4 years she has taught a course on the Biological Effects of Electromagnetic Fields.

She is concerned about the adverse health effects of electromagnetic fields generated during the production, distribution, and consumption of electricity, studying this for the past 12 years with growing intensity and growing concern.

Based on the literature and her own researchshe is convinced that power frequency electromagnetic fields can and do cause biological effects; that these effects can be both beneficial and harmful; that we know some of the mechanisms involved and are close to understanding others but that more research in this area of mechanisms and in the area of exposure remains to be done.

Regarding Public Policy and Scientific Evidence:  "I do not think that it is necessary for public policy makers to wait until ALL the scientific facts about electromagnetic fields are in before they act to protect the public by minimizing exposure.  We already have considerable information. "  For example:

-  We know that high electric fields and high magnetic field have adverse health effects based on studies of residential exposure and childhood leukemia, on studies of occupational exposure, and on laboratory experiments.

-  We know that magnetic fields above 2.5 milli Gauss (mG) (the range being debated is between 2 and 4 mG) are critical for children under the age of 14 and that magnetic fields at 12 mG (value is between 2 and 12 mG) are critical for adults with estrogen-sensitive breast cancer.

Come and find out more about detection and correction of these energies.

Typical Electro-magnetic-field levels for power transmission lines are in milliGauss - mG.    What the levels mean to your health:

  •  2 mG: level at which electromagnetic waves have been linked to childhood leukemia
  •  12 mG: level at which electromagnetic waves have been associated with increased growth of human breast cancer cells in vitro
  •  16 mG: level at which electromagnetic waves have been associated with increased risk of spontaneous abortions
  •  20 to 150 mG: level at which electromagnetic waves have been associated with chromosomal aberrations in lymph nodes
  • In Toronto, the Mean magnetic field level at downtown intersectionsis: 19.5 mG, such as:
  •  Yonge and Edward: 43 mG
  •  Yonge and King: 42 mG
  •  Yonge and Wellington: 30 mG
  •  Typical magnetic field level of low-voltage distribution lines : 30 mG (milliGauss)
     Typical magnetic field level of high-voltage transmission lines: 60 to 90 mG
     Typical magnetic field level of a television set: 20 mG
     Typical magnetic field level of a hair dryer: 70 mG
     Typical magnetic field level at the edge of Hydro One transmission line rights-of-way: 50 mG

     WHAT HEALTH CANADA SAID:

     At this time, Canadian government guidelines are not necessary because scientific evidence is not strong enough to conclude that typical exposures to electromagnetic fields cause health problems.

     WHAT THE WORLD HEALTH ORGANIZATION SAID:

     Electromagnetic fields are a "possible human carcinogen." In populations exposed to average magnetic fields in excess of 3 to 4 mG, twice as many children might develop leukemia compared to a population with lower exposures.

      WHAT HYDRO ONE SAID:

    "There will always be individual studies claiming that there are health effects or that there aren't. There's a possibility of there being something there. But there's a huge amount of noise in the data. We are certainly concerned about our workers. But we feel pretty comfortable with where things are at." -  Roger Glass, Hydro One, manager of health and safety

    What   Magda Havas says:    "There are significant health concerns. The results we found on street corners (throughout the province) are higher than most electrical occupations. We should start doing things to minimize our exposure now.   A lot has been said about the danger of cell phones, but according to a new study, it's nothing compared to the way we're bathed in electromagnetic fields by the wiring on our city streets. When are governments going to start taking this science seriously?"

    There was a series of articles --- finally --- in the Toronto Star the week of July 12, 2005 about the possible dangers of cell phones, admitting there is a need for more research.  This was the first public admission in mass media.   A short six months earlier, they were still denying this.

    Join us as Magda explains the issues, and we learn about the use of dowsing for detection and correction of this problem.


    NOVEMBER 8th
    Sandee Mac,  from Texas:   Inka Shaman, Hypnotherapist, Past Life Regressionist, Feng Shui  (Black Hat), Certified Trainer, NLP --- and of course --- a superb and intuitive dowser,  nationally known as a leader in the field of personal growth and spiritual development,  is our November speaker.

    When the Toronto Dowsers first started, in 2000, there were 3 speakers I wanted to bring to Toronto:  Raymon Grace, Joey Korn and Sandee Mac.  We are now ready for Sandee

    Sandee would spend a couple of weeks studying with Hanna Kroeger every summer.  Hanna would hold church services at the Chapel of Miracles.  People would come for healings, Hanna would go down the line, dowsing -- quickly on each one.  Sometimes Sandee would help Hanna.  The basis for her dowsing techniques are what she learned from Hanna.

    Hanna would tell people:  "Help one another. Good health is a treasure often neglected until the messengers of pain and illness get our attention."   Reverend Hanna Kroeger, the late pioneer of natural health, taught that there were 7 physical causes and 7 spiritual causes of ill health.

    These are examined in depth, responsible evaluation and self care is learned to help friends and family.

    Ill health is not caused by one single thing but is a compilation of physical and spiritual causes as well as genetics and past lives.  Several components combine to contribute to this imbalance, it is like a tapestry

    All the healing starts in our consciousness.  With practice, understanding and application to uplift the physical, health can be restored and healing can be relearned.

    Sandee has so many tools that she uses and says  "Dowsing is the center part of my life.  I use it all the time.  It's the connecting thread of all the different systems I work with in my practice."

    Many people in our group have Hanna's blue book workbook.  Some of what Sandee will be doing will be to show us how to use this book.  This was a basis to erradicate toxins, radiation, electromagnetic interference, pollution, etc.

    Do you ever take tons of supplements --- that are supposed to clear up a condition?   and they don't?   Sandee's comment can explain in part why this happens:   "When you have toxins, radiation, electromagnetic interference, etc., the tissues don't radiate with nature's life force.  The body begins to break down.  Then nature's clean up crews arrive.  If the body has that stuff in it its the same as that dead squirrel on the street.  Roadkill.   Bacteria arrive.  No matter how many vitamins, etc., you take, you can not kick it until you eliminate those causes."

    Sandee met David Slater through Hanna's sessions.  She says David takes Hanna's work deeper.   Come and learn from this amazing energetic accomplished dowser and shaman.

    Sandee  travels extensively and offers workshops on:  Shamanic Ceremonies,  Past Life Regression -  Feng Shui, Positive Psychic Protection and Dowsing.  She works with the following remedies and products:   Hanna Kroeger and David A. Slater Herbals and Homeopathic remedies; Flower and Gem Essences;  Connoisseur Essential Oils from John Steele's exclusive collection, Aromatrix;  Rare Crystals and Minerals;  Electromagnetic Protection Products;  Tachyon Product Line;   Slim Spurling’s Light-Life Technology; BioGenesis Healing Devices;   Feng Shui Support Tools and,  Dowsing Tools.

    I first met Sandee in 2000 when Raymon Grace introduced us.    Sandee taught me a technique to improve focus:
