December 11th, 2002December 9th, 2003  |  December 14, 2004   December 13, 2005 | December 12, 2006


Our December 11th, 2007, 8th Networking Social was a  friendly and well attended event.  Despite a snow storm, vendors and members turned out in force.  Food was plentiful, delicious and varied.  Conversation levels were at an all time high.  Energy was smooth, strong, steady and at a good level.  You were having fun.

From Chris:  "Hello, I spent approximately $250.00 on rocks, dolls, and honey! Not enough fruit cake!"

Below are some photos, of our happy vendors.

Our SPECIAL GUESTS are non members of our group and who have been invited to add more... 
Let us welcome special guest
Humesh Kapitan, from Narayani Homeopathy in Unionville, offers the remedies for Tooth Decay, Mouth and Gum healing  that work!  mentioned in the October 2007 newsletter.  He will bring those remedies, a few others and different cleansing kits, etc.   He will also be available for BRIEF personal consultations.

Let us welcome special guest
The Reading and Study Group, from Kingston

The Kingston area Health Pursuits Reading/Study Group, made up of very (chemically) sensitive people, and represented here by Gloria Alban of Toronto, has put together a kit comprised of vitamins that they test --- using smell --- to see if you need it, or do not.  This kit will be available and demonstrated by a Toronto area member of that group.  This is their means for detection.   It would be interesting if you would compare your dowsing detection with your smell detection.  Etc.

  Extremely sensitive people, living in Kingston, would gather and study together for 6 years, solution seeking.  Diane Dawber read about Dr. Lendon Smith's research.  As a result, they put together a vitamin kit of "stand alone" vitamins.  You smell them and depending on how they smell to you, you will know if you need them, or if you do not. Gloria Alban will be demontrating this kit, with 40 vitamins, so you can find out what you need, or what you do not. 

$2 will be asked for each person who wants to be tested.  This money goes to the Toronto Dowsers.  We now own this kit.

[NOTE:  Similarly, from Dr. Keith Scott-Mumby, mentioned in the Dec 2007 newsletter:  He spoke about his work in environmental medicine-- some people, "human canaries," are much more sensitive to chemicals, which can make them ill. He suggested taking a "nose survey" in which a person goes through their home and removes unneeded items that exude a smell. The Doctor also touched on his involvement with energy medicine, using such approaches as vocal re-patterning and the SCENAR device to treat patients.]

Marilyn Gang
In the year I have been using StemEnhance, from StemTech HealthSciences Inc., I have been experiencing NOTICEABLE improvements in:
  - Physical, mental, psychic and emotional energy. 
  - Memory, focus, concentration are MUCH improved
  - Feelings of Stress, overwhelm and overload are greatly reduced
  -  Easier to get up in the morning and DO STUFF!
  - STAMINA!  --  Since I started taking StemEnhance, I have the stamina I had a couple of years ago and it is helping me to do the tasks for the Toronto Dowsers that I want to do.
 - During long nighttime driving:  My eyes aren't tired and neither is the rest of me.
 - Digestion, too, is better.  Sleep is more refreshing.  My hair feels better, I can see differences in my eyes and skin and folks have been commenting on it.
 - Am making healthier food choices and my pants are looser.

Go to:

As I can not  take care of the table this evening, because I need to "run the show", please get more information -- or product -- from me through the Toronto Dowsers table, 
This product is an extract from algae, a whole food and the source of all life.  StemEnhance is a  natural botanical extract.   It is the very first product on the market from a category called “stem cell enhancers”.

When you take two capsules, the ingredients help to support the release of stem cells from the bone marrow into the bloodstream.  Those stem cells then travel to areas of the body where they are most needed.

Adult stem cells are most abundantly found in bone marrow.  Stem cells circulate and function to replace dysfunctional cells.  StemEnhance supports the release of adult stem cells from bone marrow into circulation.

StemEnhance™ is a blend of two compounds extracted from algae. One extract, supports the release of stem cells from the bone marrow. The other extract, may support the migration of stem cells out of the blood into tissues.

Maggie's son Michael Moon is an award wining international musician, composer and performer from Toronto. For the past 15 years he has specialized in the power sound has to heal and transform. From deep meditation and relaxation music designed to bring the listener into alpha (Above the sound of Gravity CD and Deep Peace CDs) and theta (Dance of the Deep CD and Surrender CDs) states, to inspiring heart songs and rock and roll that utilizes techniques of shamanism. Michael Moon's music crosses the boundaries between genres and worlds creating a tantric bridge between heaven and earth, a living temple of sound.

Michael Moon's music moves energy and can be used as a healing tool by itself or as the perfect accompaniment for healing sessions. The music is mystical and entheogenic in nature, gently altering the listener's consciousness, while entertaining, and has roots in shamanism, tantra, eastern mysticism, and the western mystery school traditions as well as modern techniques
of sound healing.

Michael's CDs are used widely by many different healing practitioners, yoga studios and individuals for meditation, massage, meditative movement, deep relaxation and gentle background sound designed to enhance positive energy. His CDs are designed to suit these various situations.

"The music is composed, performed and recorded by Michael Moon with a miscellany of instruments including vibraharp, hammered dulcimer, marimba, bells, crystals, guitar and percussion. No electronics, sequencers or synthesizers are used. The compelling sonic productions incorporate his unique methods of sonic therapy creating a mystical atmosphere in which healing is facilitated, while taking the listener on an entertaining and inspiring journey." 

Michael has 2 new CD’s out this year Deep Peace and Surrender. Deep Peace is a sonic journey through the 4 elements and the 7 chackras balancing the energetic systems of the body and realigning the energy field with the grounding and healing vibration of the earth.

Anthony Olufeko

   Years ago Anthony found " IN THE LIGHT OF TRUTH" THE GRAIL MESSAGE.   This is not a religion or group, but a work that explain creation as a whole for those striving for spiritual consciousness and he would like to share this message with us.

The Grail Message of Abd-ru-shin mediates the knowledge of the upbuilding of Creation.  It explains the connections without a gap, and gives a complete survey of all the activity in Creation.

 - it is irrespective of creed, nationality or race, because it is he alone who has to bear the responsibility for everything he thinks and does. 
   - it shows him the way he has to follow in order to find true happiness 

The root of all evil, of present and past afflictions and distress, lies only with the individual human being. If he turns earnestly towards the good, everything else also becomes good. 

Detailed explanations are given as to what the free will of man, intellect and intuitive perception, soul and spirit signify, their tasks and their relation to each other, really are

The three great Laws of Creation - the Law of Reciprocal Action (the Law of Sowing and Reaping), the Law of the Attraction of Homogeneous Species, and the Law of Gravitation - are explained 

 We learn that the Law of Sowing and Reaping applies not only to the earthly seed, but also to man's actions and thoughts, which through the working of the incorruptible Laws of Creation ripen into fruits, corresponding exactly to good or evil volition, of which man alone must taste. Thoughts, intuitive perceptions and deeds are very effective forms or "works" (that remain connected with their author until he severs himself from them. They form his "fate", and some times he is struck by "blows of fate" which he cannot account for, although the cause of these was given by him in former earth-lives. 

It is repeatedly emphasized in the Grail Message how important to man is the knowledge of the Laws of Creation, for the very reason that his spirit possesses the ability to recognize the Will of God in these Laws.

 A  "funny" thing happened about our Manifesting concept --- remember Puck?   Puck and Phillip Bowman were the greatest help to us during our first 3 years.   Puck moved into Toronto and working with the owner of Nepal Handicrafts, is organizing the Toronto Singing Bowl Circle -- whose members are, naturally, Toronto Dowsers!

   Puck, Jesse, Vern and their families of 31 singing bowls have been invited to accompany our evening and will be creating whatever harmony the bowls decide will be appropriate for the evening.

   Puck tells us the Bön Singing Bowls predate the Tibetans by a few thousand years.   There are 9 principles of enlightenment within the Bön way of being and that the 7th is Sound.   These bowls range from 2 1/2" in diameter to bowls you need to walk around.

How does this relate to our Manifesting? 
   When I asked him what is their purpose
   Puck replied:   These bowls offer a facilitation towards manifestation.  !!!

See the bottom of this page for an Appendix containing all sorts of info on the

Bön Singing Bowls


The FOOD TABLE is set up the entire evening. We usually have 3 or 4  FOOD TABLES  LOADED with lovely treats.  PLEASE DO BRING the finger food munchies you would like to share with us.


      Our (mostly) monthly meetings feature speaker presentations.  And yet, we have a tremendous amount of talent, wisdom, experience and more in dowsing, energy work, healing on physical and non physical levels, teaching, astrology, earth energies, horticulture, musicology, cosmologies, cross cultural. cross dimensional knowledges,  etc.

   Because we have a lot of smart, creative, educated, multi faceted and capable people in many areas, many have their own businesses, products and services.

    You (members) need the chance --- the stage --- to strut your stuff --- so we know more of who you are, what you do.

      December  and June seem to be the 2 times of the year when people are planning holiday trips and events and less inclined to want to sit and listen to a speaker.   Attention is paid to those energies which is why the months of  June  (and January, because of December) we schedule less formal meetings.
       Because the dark time of the year (in this hemisphere) has become associated with festive spiritual and religious activities, we ride this energy wave and  help make our December event a festive one.

   The Annual Networking Social is the opportunity that has been created for you to let others know more about you, what you like, what you teach, what you offer, what you make, what you sell.  And the opportunity for others to find out more about you.

    Paid up members in good standing are eligible for a table at this event.

    Your table could offer products for sale that you represent or that you create.   It could have material for a school you own.  You could have a table because you want to tell people about your new uncovery or your reflexology or radionics practice or do henna tatoos or palm readings or offer samples of your kombucha tea or you make and sell teas, shampoos, essential oils, pottery, etc. etc. etc.  It's you sharing that part of yourself you want to share with the rest of us.

    Because we have grown, in the past few years we have more requests for tables than we have room for them (we have room for about 30).   So some of us dowse to see which requests are for the highest good of all.  Not being chosen does not mean you are not good for us.  One year someone was not de-selected through our dowsing and as it turned out --- she had products for sale, but the previous week she was in another show and sold out!  The dowsing knows!

    Its a good chance to do some low key advertising.

   Go to:
December 11th, 2002December 9th, 2003  |  December 14, 2004   December 13, 2005 | December 12, 2006

  and see what was set up for the events of the last few years.

    You also bring food.  You don't have to do that, but you want to --- because we have LOTS of really delicious food at this event.   We have munchies --- contributed by you as usual --- more than just after the meeting --- its ... all....night....long....  So BRING IT ON DOWNNNN!

   This is the night, truth be it known, that Toronto Dowsers do what we do best:   Talk   Eat  &  Shop.

   Every year we hear how you have met people you have not seen in years.

  And no, this is not a religious event.    Its a time of year people like to be social, many of you may not necessarily attend a Chanukah party and I  did  promise my rabbi that, no,   I have no interest in organizing a christmas party.

   So if you would like a table, please read the description in the Oct or Nov newsletter, follow it, and get a request to me for a table, according to the instructions.   Some table items work better than others.  If you have a question about what you would like to offer, or HOW:  ASK!

    I have found that for events like this one, although I may not *think* I am interested in attending for any of the obvious reasons, it is most important to go --- to meet someone who will be important to me.   You might find out that for you, like for me:  "It's not what I do, its who I do it with."

   Ensure you bring an appetite, your joie de vivre, business cards and money to buy stuff.  Support your local Toronto Dowser.

   Send in a request for a table.
   Or, do come on down.   Bring a good friend.  Show your friend Your group, the group you are part of and has changed because your energy is now part of the chemistry of the group.

  okay?  THANK YOU!

Used in Meditation, these unique instruments can cause the listener to experience different mood changes depending on the Master playing them. The actual name is called BON and this means container. Indeed it is also used as a vessel for eating and drinking.

Long hidden from most of the world, we now know these particular sound making bowls have existed for at least 4000 years. Evidence is found in the excavation (1938) of an old Bon temple dated at 2400 BC, in which two Singing Bowls were discovered. A spiritual advisor of the Dalai Lama traced the singing bowls back to a primitive and animistic sect related to the indigenous people of Nepal that was dedicated to fire worship. From there the bowls were carried across the silk route, and found their way into Tibet. The true origin of singing bowls remains uncertain, but use by the Bonpo practitioners of the Bon religion clearly implies ancient links.

The Lamas who used the bowls were masters of sound. They used them in secret and kept them exclusively for themselves; never mentioning the rituals or the bowls. In shamanic circles all knowledge about the power of sound, including the light beings painted by Joska Soos, has been carefully kept secret. Initiation in sound is the highest level of initiation; sound is such a powerful force. In religious and shamanic practices the use of sound is ancient and primal. All world traditions express the most fundamental energy underlying the manifestation of the universe in terms of sound. In the physical world humans participate in the expression of this fundamental energy with the use of their voice and musical instruments. Singing bowls have survived thousands of years as shamanic instruments, affirming their effectiveness in shamanic work.

Singing bowls are not just musical, sound producing objects. Sacred shamanic instruments, they have been crafted to effectively bring a hypnotic state of consciousness, a trance which opens the door to the inner world quickly and swiftly. At the same time they help restructure disharmonies on the non-physical causal level, promoting healing on the physical plane.

There are still many Bon-po (adherents of Bon), especially in the east of Tibet. Bon is usually considered as the ensemble of pre-Buddhist beliefs of the Tibetans and it embodies a vast mass of ritual practices bearing on exorcism, divination  and the appeasement of wrathful divinities as well as elaborate teachings guiding the individual to full spiritual realisation.  That places Bon among the great mystico-philosophical systems of the world, despite the relatively small number of its adherents.

 Tonpa Shenrab, the Completely Enlightened One
Tonpa Shenrab, the founder of the Yung Drung Bön religion, was born in 16,017 BC, in the land of Omolungring. Tonpa Shenrab appeared initially as an ordinary man. Before he attained enlightenment (Buddhahood), he went through the six realms of cyclic existence in countless births. He entered the door of enlightenment through the practices of accumulating merit and purifying himself, resulting in the attainment of the transcendental qualities of loving kindness and compassion. He is superior among all the exalted enlightened beings and is dedicated to the liberation of all sentient beings. In order to rescue them, he turned the Dharma Wheel of Bön three times as an antidote to all suffering.

According to tradition, bowls are made from seven metals: one metal for each planet.

These metals combined produce an individual sound as each bowl is hand made. The harmonies of all the metals produce subtle distinctions creating a sensation of great space and profound peace. May the sound of this bowl bring you good health and long life.
