The Complete Book of Dowsing

£11.99

Product description

Without water we could not live, and yet it has become an increasingly scarce natural resource that often has to be piped over hundreds of miles to reach the places where it is most needed. In spite of modern technology, the search for water is spear-headed by the age-old technique of dowsing. The beauty of dowsing is its simplicity - using the simplest equipment the dowser can detect complex underground geological formations that can only otherwise be confirmed by expensive and time-consuming borehole drilling by engineers. In this text, Applegate explains the principles and techniques of dowsing so that the beginner should be able to detect water on a wide variety of sites and locations. He describes how "dowsing consciousness" works and explains how to develop this faculty so that the dowser can attain consistent, competent results. He also provides the reader with an understanding of geology and land formation, stressing their vital importance to successful dowsing.;As well as being a practical and authoritative instruction manual for the beginner, this text introduces the reader to important advanced technieques, including: dowsing from a distance and using a map; dowsing and biorhythms; and dowsing for engineering and industrial applications.

This is an ex-library book and as such contains markings, stamps and inscriptions as such within a few select pages. But the rest of the pages are clean, intact and in very good condition overall as is the cover.

Oxfam Shop Leicester Market Street

The Oxfam Shop in Leicester specialises in books, music and bridalwear. The shop has two floors. The first floor consists of a large book and music department along with our great range of Sourced by Oxfam products. The second floor is mainly bridal wear including mother of bride and eveningwear. 

Could you help us by collecting donations from donors homes? Our shop receives many offers of generous donations that we have to turn down as we do not have volunteers able to collect. We would ask you to collect in your own car, at your convenience and reimburse your petrol costs. It might be a couple of times a month and would make a really big difference to our ability to make money.
