June 6th: Egypt: Some Observations About Earth Energies & Other Mysteries with Kate Smart

Egypt continues to fascinate and intrigue us with the monumental pyramids and temples in celestial alignment. For dowsers, the desert land offers a complex terrestrial map of earth energies without the ‘background noise’ of water bearing rock, soil and vegetation we associate with our British landscape. Despite the clarity of the dowsing experience the mysteries of this sophisticated culture, that spans millennia, withholds many secrets. Many of the enigmatic man-made structures were built to endure for eternity and speak for themselves. This talk explores the smallest portion of this rich dowsing experience but highlights some of the most unusual and thought provoking aspects. Kate is a garden designer & Chair of Malvern Dowsers.
