Our theme

Dowsing gives us a unique ability to be sensitive, and gain awareness of our environment, including the ‘unseen world’ of Earth Energies, Spirit of Place, Elementals, and underground Water. Our DFest theme of “Consciously Communicating with our Surroundings” is a chance to actively explore these aspects to gain a better understanding of levels of consciousness of all things, and their inter-relationships with one another, and us, through the ages.


Three professional dowsers: Ann Lodygowski (Saturday), Mandy Bennett (Saturday) and John Moss (Sunday) will give engaging talks covering a fascinating range of dowsing topics.

Outings with experienced leaders:

Saturday: Brent Tor, Scorhill, Kes Tor, Taw Valley.

Sunday: Merrivale, Fernworthy, Lydford Gorge, Belstone.


Workshops will be provided within our theme over the two days in Victory Hall South Zeal.

Socialising in beautiful Surroundings

This is a chance to enjoy conversations with like-minded people both during the day and into the long summer evenings in this medieval Dartmoor village. Camping is possible at the King’s Arms, and B&B is available in the local area. South Zeal has two excellent pubs with good food. Those wishing to come early can join us on the Friday 22nd, free of charge, for walks and socialising.
