We will be meeting in the most beautiful (and comfortable) church meeting room I have ever seen. The ambiance of this room can only enhance our already fine energy. You will be proud to bring a friend and show her/him the group you are part of.
These meetings are open to anyone who is interested in learning how to dowse, or becoming a better dowser. You do not need to be a member of the CSD. Your dowsing will improve merely by attending our meetings. Dowsing is a form of energy. This kind of energy is caught, not taught.
Our meetings will include activities to practice your dowsing and guest speakers who will share their experiences and teach you new skills. You will have a chance to meet others who you can help or who can help you. One of the best parts of these groups is meeting synergistic people.
Requested donation (to cover costs):
$5 per meeting for Toronto chapter members
$7 per meeting for non members of the Toronto chapter
$20 per year for membership in the Toronto chapter
First meeting for yourself or for a guest is Free. So do bring a friend.
If you can not afford this donation, please make arrangements with us before the meeting.
Goal: To become better
To help others learn dowsing and become better dowsers.
How do we do this?
How do we improve?
What tools can we use?
What are the important steps and procedures?
Our group will define itself in its first year. Your continued presence will define who we are and who we become.
We will set up Dowsing Buddies for practice and to help
support one another.
We will share resources, anecdotes, what works, what does not work.
We will inform each other of books, teachers, suppliers, places, events
Learning to dowse is like learning how to drive a car or learning a new dance step. You are coordinating mind/body steps. You can learn the mechanics of it in a day or a week-end, and many feel they can't really "learn" it just in that time period or in that setting. It helps if your body practices this until this "felt sense" becomes automatic.
It's fun. It's easy. It's highly useful to you and to your
family and friends. And clients.
WOW! 45 people showed up at the very first meeting of our Toronto Chapter of the Canadian Society of Dowsers Tuesday night, September 19th at the Church of the Transfiguration. WOW! This was an excellent response to a mailing sent out to 160 people, don't you think so? AND they had a very good time and most signed up to become members of the Toronto chapter, receiving John Living's dowsing book as a free gift for signing up at the first meeting. Thank YOU!
Joan DeNew, our guest speaker, from Hamilton, had us listening intently with her recitations of dowsing experiences telling us about how she helped to find and change DNA mutations caused by emotional trauma in one woman who was undergoing difficulties and found the cause to help cure herself from fibromyalgia (removing suppressed emotional anger towards another person). She talked about dowsing accuracy and removing a creepy crawly feeling from a house by helping the past (and passed on) inhabitant go to the light. She talked about helping her husband by helping him remove behavioral patternings caused by early childhood traumas. She talked about one of her mentors, Herbert Parker and the book he wrote "Dowsing Your Soul's Purpose", that she teaches to small groups from her home in Hamilton, in the evening. If you want to talk to Joan, contact: Joan DeNew (905) 549-7956 firstname.lastname@example.org
Brian Kelly was the lucky winner of the first Dowsing Jar. This was the beginning of what we hope will become a "sweet" tradition with us. You dowse to get the number of sweets in a jar. Whoever gets the correct number gets to take the jar home and brings a new, filled, jar for the next meeting. Peter Clayton stuffed this jar full of 28 Caramilk bars for our first jar. And, we did not count the number of bars until after the dowsing was done so as not to have any stray throught forms confusing or influencing us.
Marilyn spoke about upcoming dowsing events in the area --- which can all be viewed in more detail on our web site --- such as the Quester's Convention beginning September 29th, the School of Dowsing's (free) preview night October 13th, Eric Dowsett's workshop in Guelph October 14th and 15th, Raymon Grace's workshop in Orangeville November 3rd - 5th and Joey Korn's workshop near Rochester, NY December 2,3. Also of interest to the dowsing community is the upcoming "Power of Music" 12 week course offered by Sharon Howarth Russell beginning September 28th. Phone: (416) 920 - 8798 for more information.

Canadian Society of Dowsers T Shirts were not available for sale at this meeting, as hoped, but will be at the next one(s). Check out: www.CanadianDowsers.org/tshirt.html
FOUND: Something which looks like part of an L-Rod or a Bobber or a communicator to the Pleidians was found on the floor as we were cleaning up after the meeting. We will bring it to the next meeting or contact Marilyn if you want to identify and claim it.
This meeting will be a hands on mini workshop. Eva will show us how to dowse for health and how to use her book. Bring your pendulum. If you like, bring a sample of an uncooked fruit or vegetable. This is a great way to find out about allergies, supplements, etc.
Eva is the author of "Vital Knowledge", a Holistic Health Reference and Dowsing Manual. There are over 50 clear well developed charts on such topics as: Allergies, Joint Health, The Chakras, Weight Control, Liver-Gallbladder, Immune Support, Supplements, Hair, Heart and Circulation, Oils and Fats, etc. This is a sturdy, spiral bound 8 1/2" x 11" book printed on heavy glossy paper which makes it an easy to use long lasting useful reference manual.
Copies of this 100 page book will be available for sale at the meeting
A pendulum is included with the book.
The details are still being worked out at this time, but just to let you know that Alicja Aratyn will be with us for 1 or 2 meetings showing us different dowsing tools. Did you know that there are several different kinds of pendulums that can be used for different purposes? Alicja (pronounced Al-ee'-tse-ya) will show us all about these and other dowsing tools.
The decision whether or not to hold a December (12th) meeting is dependent on whether or not we feel enough people will attend at is generally a busy time of the year for many. Would you give us an idea if you would be attending or not? Do let us know at the Oct/Nov meeting and/or call/email Marilyn.
As a response to the request that we get help to "make us" practice, we will set up DOWSING BUDDIES at one of our meetings. These are groups of 2 or 3 people who live near one another get together and practice, hopefully 1 or more times a month.
Please let us know your email address (unless we have it already), and of anyone you know of who would be interested in receiving email notices of meetings and events. We would like to move from snail to email notification of future meetings and this will help. Of course we'd be happy to send snail mail notices to anyone you think would be interested in receiving them. Do let us know.
Do you have anecdotes, techniques, etc. that you would like to share
with us? Want to suggest a topic or a speaker for a meeting
or be one? Want to volunteer something? Do you
have an article you would like to submit to the CSD Journal?
Please let us know.
This just occurred to me: At the end of our meetings, we offer refreshments (punch and cookies), which is nice to have while we absorb our experience and socialize and network.
Might there be 3-5 or so people who attend who would like to bring in
home made cookies, or something like that? Not all the time
(unless of course you want to of course), but once in awhile? And,
is there anyone who would like to coordinate this? Please let Marilyn
know. I know fer sure we'd love it.
