Winter Solstice 1998 MAG E-zine
Light in the Darkness
This quarter's MAG E-zine has some really interesting and new information. Glenn Broughton and Steve Page present evidence about the connection between the crop circles and underground water that all geomantic dowsers need to know about. Eric Dowsett gives us a peek at Aboriginal geomancy in Australia. (Please note the correlation between working the Song Lines and the energetic flow that Glenn and Steve describe in their article.) While MAG does primarily focus on European geomancy, it is important for all geomancers to be aware of other culture's way of working in this area. This is especially important now that Earth energy dowsers are beginning to accept the reality that all dowsers see these energies differently. There is no "Right" way. My article, "Dowsing In Sacred Space: The New Realities," explores different ways dowsers can use their divinatory tools in sacred space, given that each of us will probably find something different. Finally, American Society of Dowsers' Life Member and Chapter Chairman Stephen Bosbach tells us of the results of using the Mind Mirror in labyrinths. I was part of the initial testing of dowsers on the Mind Mirror at the ASD in the early eighties. It is exciting to see this work extended to labyrinths.
I trust this Winter Solstice will give you time to go inside, to reflect, and to find new ways of being of service to our Earth.
Crop Circles - The Underground Connection
Innovative research by
Glenn Broughton & Steve Page.
Glenn Broughton sees life as a spiritual journey which has led him through parenting, teaching, community art work, ethical business, organic horticulture and healing (spiritual and crystal) to his present work as group facilitator, tour guide and researcher. Six years ago he found himself being led to visit sacred sites, not knowing why but being open to what he found and experienced there. He became aware of the presence of Earth energy currents and through experience and research he was able to understand something of why our ancestors built these remarkable monuments and what they used them for; and even more importantly how we can access this energy and the wisdom of the Earth today and utilize it for both personal and planetary healing.
Steve Page is 34 years old and for a long time I have been interested in all aspects relating to the huge spiritual reawakening that I believe is taking place on our planet. For the last seven years I have been passionately drawn to investigating crop circles, which I believe to be the most important phenomenon of our time and inextricably linked to the emergence of a greater planetary consciousness.I have been actively involved at a national and local level with research into this phenomenon with the Centre for Crop Circle Studies for which I am Devon convenor and South West regional representative.

Eric Dowsett has been working with energy dowsing for many years and is constantly refining and simplifying his practice. Most of his work now is focused on teaching others the simple yet profound art of healing the earth, ourselves and each other through weekend and four day workshops.
Dowsing In Sacred Space: The New Realities
by Sig Lonegren
Sig Lonegren has been dowsing for over thirty-five years, and one of the enduring problems is why all dowsers don't find the same thing when dowsing in sacred space? In this article, he not only addresses this issue, but begins to work with the question, "So, if everyone finds something different, where do we go from here?
Mind Mirror Measurements at the Levi Labyrinth
by Stephen Bosbach
Stephen Bosbach is a life member of the American Society of Dowsers and began dowsing professionally for water in 1975. He established the Armadillo Chapter of Dowsers in Austin, Texas in 1987 and is currently it's chairman. His articles on dowsing have been published world wide, and he is often teaching the skill at regional conventions and seminars. Stephen has had a long interest in earth energies, particularly the geopathic zone and it's opposite, the geovitic zone, often correlated with underground water domes. This interest expanded to include the labyrinth forms and their possible uses.Write comment (0 Comments)

Autumn Equinox 1998 MAG E-zine
What is Geomancy?
At this Autumn Equinox, MAG has organised an international gathering of working geomancers on the Scottish Hebridean holy island of Iona, home of St. Columba, the Irish monk who brought Christianity to Scotland. In preparation for this meeting, we asked each participant to write their response to the question, "What is Geomancy?"
Actually, this is really a very important question. For European Geomancers, the word "geomancy" has undergone a significant change in meaning in the last twenty years. This is due to the fact that we are only now in the process of rediscovering the entire scope of what our geomantic foremother and fathers were really up to. I first learned about the energies, then astronomy, and it wasn't until I read John Michell's "The View Over Atlantis" in the early seventies that I encountered sacred geometry. The secular aspects of geomancy (clearing "sick houses" and businesses) came after that.
Each of us has come to European Geomancy on different paths. Each of us sees it differently. Yet you will see by reading these fascinating papers that we share an amazing amount in common - first of all being a reverence for the Earth. We trust you will enjoy this special issue of "MAG E-zine" - "What is Geomancy?"

Summer Solstice 1998 MAG E-zine
This is a different issue in that there is a balance of scientific and practical plus people's stories of their own involvement with things geomantic. These articles are living proof of the diversity from which geomancers come. It reminds me of my Hypothesis # 1 - "Unless they were trained by the same teacher, it is quite probable that no two Earth Energy dowsers will find the same thing when dowsing for intangible targets in sacred space." Marty Cane expands this reality when she talks about the people who are forming the Newport Earth Institute and the diversity of things each of them sees as rightly belonging to the subject of Geomancy.

Dowsing:A technique for finding and measuring some field effects that involve our sub-conscious minds?
by Dudley H. Wheeler M.A.
Dudley came to dowsing after retiring as a Marketing Manager in a chemical company. One of the aims of his experimentation and writing has been to try and intrigue scientists that dowsing is something to be marvelled at and should be studied for the new insights it can bring about. I first met Dudley on the net, but have since dowsed with him in Avebury. I am pleased he is sharing this article with us.Write comment (0 Comments)

Spring Equinox 1998 MAG E-Zine
I think this a really exciting issue of our magazine. It feels as if dowsers are seeking ways to come to terms with Earth Energy terminology. Jim sullivan explores the many possibilities. Billy Gawn continues his mission of developing some basic earth energy terminology. Finally Joey Korn tells us about his mentor Walter Russell.
by Jim Sullivan
I got to know Jim Sullivan on the internet. We have been involved in an email discussion group on the Earth Energies. Jim trained as a geologist, and makes his living as an electrician/electronics technician. He's been dowsing since 1983 and his focus until now has been on working with the energy fields of plants and the various energy fields and pathways in the human body. Lately, his focus has expanded to include the energy fields of the Earth, and he has noted numerous correspondences between these fields and those that circulate in the human body. Jim also has a webpage.
by Billy Gawn
Billy Gawn is a fine Earth Energy dowser from Northern Ireland. I first met him through snail mail. He had written the American Society of Dowsers who passed his letter on to me. We ended up trading a number of nine page single-spaced typed letters about these energies and sacred sites. Billy now chairs the British Society of Dowsers' Earth Energy Group, and is involved in the creation of a booklet of Earth Energy dowsing terminology. Billy has also written another articlefor our MAG E-zine in which he discusses the primary water system.
by Joey Korn
I first met Joey Korn on the internet in an AOL Chat Room on dowsing in about 1993. Since then we have met at an ASD Conference and continued to find ways of corresponding in cyberspace. Joey has written a series of three articles in "MAG E-zine," all of which were adapted from his book, "Empowering Yourself and Working with Nature through Dowsing". The three articles together gave a comprehensive picture of this active dowser's recent findings. In this article, he writes about finding his teacher, Walter Russell, master sculptor, painter, musician, composer, equestrian, architect, scientist, philosopher, author, poet, and more.
