Cost: € 120 (100 concessions) Introduction to the Art of Dowsing – Stones Circles in West Cork and what their energy means

Just as you can tune the strings of a guitar by shortening the string length to different tones, you can tune a fork-shaped divining rod to “electromagnetic wavelengths”. The seminar teaches basic techniques of this so-called handle length technique with a ‘Plastic Dowsing Rod’ and the so-called ‘Lecher’ Antenna (invented by Reinhard Schneider, explained below): rod position, calibration, field survey techniques, tuning technique. Determination of Wavelengths on the ‘Lecher’-scale, identifying the polarity of radiation, assessing the direction of water flow underground, measuring the intensity of radiation, and techniques for measuring from a distance, quality determination (inductive, capacitive, pondoromotor ). This physical dowsing uses principles of microwave physics and optics. This makes measurement results easier to compare and verifiable than mental walking. The high-frequency physicist Reinhard Schneider from Wertheim (D) understood the dowsing rod as a dipole antenna tuneable to electromagnetic wavelengths. It is marked with handle lengths on Plastic Rods (forked rods), which allow optimal setting when tuned to a wavelength and thus a rod reaction. Reinhard Schneider’s most important invention was the Lecher Antenna, which is particularly suitable for checking the measured values found with a Plastic Rod. The Lecher Scale is tuned by a short slider. With the magnetic stick of the Lecher Antenna the biologically effective left- and right-handed polarisations can be distinguished. After learning the basic working techniques, we apply our new knowledge in tracing water veins and measuring the electromagnetic field structures of stone circles. Rods and Lecher Antennas will be provided for the course and can be purchased if required.
