Welcome to The British Society of Dowsers

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.


We hope you are keeping safe and well during this unprecedented time.

As you are aware, due to the coronavirus, our Symposium 2020 was postponed from March 21st to July 4th.

With only four weeks until July 4th and the country still in partial lockdown, we have no alternative but to postpone this event again. We have moved our booking to Saturday 12th September with the view that lockdown will be eased further by this time and we will be able to go ahead with the number of delegates that have already booked their place.

If you have already booked, your booking will automatically be transferred to 12th September.

This event will now also include our AGM.

We thank you for your understanding and support. If we can be of any further assistance, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Kind regards

'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.
