I was introduced to dowsing 15 years ago at a retreat where the instructor used L-Rods to place a Labyrinth. When the rods magically moved in my hands I was hooked and I have been dowsing ever since. Its been a pleasure to teach dowsing to others and watch them discover that ‘A Ha!!’ moment for themselves. As a member of Vermont Vibrations, I was part of a research project investigating the use of runic energies and their incorporation into Labyrinths. I enjoy dowsing earth energies to find to find water, create sacred space, and co-create healthier living spaces.
