About Us

Somerset Dowsers is an Affiliated Local Group (ALG) of the British Society of Dowsers (BSD).

We are based in Taunton, Somerset, and welcome Members and guests from around the County, and beyond.  The group has a range of Members from novice to expert and professional dowsers.  You can join the group for a small annual fee, which means you can attend Talks and Outings for free, or you can attend as a guest and pay for each event.  As a Member you can also borrow items from our Library, free of charge.  For more information, see our Membership page.

Our group provides a focal point and network in Somerset for people interested in dowsing.  We help people to learn more about dowsing and its potential applications – through Talks, Outings, Workshops, Training, Events, the Library, and discussion with other Members.  We also provide the opportunity to experience practical dowsing – through Outings, Workshops, and Training.

Our Talks are now held at Ruishton Village Hall (near Taunton - see Contact Us page for map), and are free of charge to Members, and cost £3 for Non-Members and guests.  The Talks are generally held on the last Monday of every other month at 7.30pm, but please check the Schedule in case of any variation. 

If you are a Non-Member wishing to attend a Talk or Outing, please inform our Secretary, as places may be limited - see the Contact Us page for details.

We are also available for talks, events and workshops.  If you are interested, please contact our Chairman for further information - please see the Contact Us page.

Thu 30th Nov - Talk – Land and Property Dowsing – Mandy Bennett

Following a request to help resolve a health issue, Mandy realised that nothing could be done until the person’s home environment was treated  This led to the wonderful world of dowsing and healing of Properties – including dealing with the usual culprits of underground water and Geopathic stress, to surprising encounters with other realms involving elementals, spirits, and even a tethered gnome!

In the last few years Mandy has expanded her work to assess and heal land, involving projects such as ‘What’s wrong with Taunton’, as published in Dowsing Today.

Mandy will discuss her work, and some of the fascinating case studies dealing with blocked and contaminated energy lines, battle and accident trauma, spirits, guardians of the land, and even giants and dragons.

Mandy is a Professional Health Dowser, Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) Master Practitioner, and therapist.  She has developed her dowsing since her training with Jack Temple, and now works with dowsing to heal people, places and animals.  She is a long-standing Member of the BSD, and Chairman of the Somerset Dowsers.
