Brent Tor is an impressive rock outcrop on Dartmoor. And sitting atop it is St Michael’s Church at 1,100 feet above sea level. There is evidence of an iron age hill fort as well as medieval ruined structures. Both the Mary and Michael energy lines (earth currents) meet there and run through it making it a powerful and fascinating place to dowse.
Dowsing is a form of 'divining' and it has been used for thousands of years for many different purposes, including finding water, oil, archaeological remains, missing people as well energy lines and testing for allergies. Our day together will specifically focus on dowsing earth energies in the area around the tor. And there is an opportunity for some archaeological dowsing too.
