Sunday 19 May, 1pm – 4pm

Harald has had a keen interest in dowsing since childhood when he observed his father dowsing with his willow rod to find water-veins to drill for water. In his work with natural healing, he repeatedly come across the fact that various diseases occur increasingly where earth energy lines and electromagnetic fields occur. The body’s reaction to these can be measured with a simple digital device.

Dowsing is about more than just finding water. The Earth’s gravitational and electromagnetic lines can have an effect on human health, animal behaviour, and the natural environment. During this three-hour experience, guests will learn an introduction to dowsing, intuition and more. You will have a hands on experience walking among trees in the local area, learning to see lines and find where they are.

Cost $30 includes:

  • Afternoon tea
  • E-book “The Dowsing Manual”
  • Hard copy book “Maximise Your Mind”
  • Tuition
  • Practical experience
