About The British Society of Dowsers

Welcome to the website of The BSD

The British Society of Dowsers is a Registered Charity, charity number 295911, founded in 1933 to promote dowsing in the United Kingdom and beyond.  We presently offer a wide range of courses and training, and host a wide variety of meetings and activities centred on this ancient art, together with our annual conference held in September.

We warmly welcome new members and those people who wish to learn more about the fascinating and captivating art of Dowsing. You don't have to know how to dowse to become a member; our popular training courses can take you from enthusiastic beginner right through to professional level.

Our Journal, "Dowsing Today," is published three times a year and circulated throughout our membership. We also publish regular E-newsetters with the latest news and events happening in the Dowsing World.

Through our Registers of Practitioners we offer a dowsing referral service, and act as a point of information to the public. Membership of the Society provides access to our wide range of events as well as the opportunity to meet with others interested in this fascinating and valuable field.

The Society is run by our friendly team of staff based in our offices in Hanley Swan, near Malvern in Worcestershire. The Society is governed by an elected Council of six trustees who meet regularly. As well as an annual Conference our special interest groups host regular meetings, events and workshops throughout the UK. The British Society of Dowser’s network of over 30 Affiliated Local Groups offer a warm welcome to new members with a programme of activities for all abilities.

Thanks to the support of our members the Society supports fresh water projects in Southern India and Zambia.
