Convention Schedule

Pre-Convention Workshops - Workshops are intensive classes focusing on a specific dowsing or other metaphysical topic.

• Basic Dowsing School - This two-day, hands-on course will cover all aspects of dowsing: what is it; how it works; the ethics of dowsing; and the many levels of dowsing including on-site, distance, map dowsing, deviceless dowsing, and making changes.
• Water Dowsing Course - This two day instructional course focusing on all aspects of water dowsing. You will learn about water dowsing in the classroom and practice it in the field. ASD's water dowsers have located water across the country and around the world in a wide variety of locations for both residential and commercial purposes.
• Awakening is an Internal Process - This interactive workshop with Paxton Robey will use internatl tools learned in the workshop as well as their dowsing techniques to assist each other in taking the next steps along the path to awakening. Personal Insights and awakenings will be experienced which set the stage for life long growth.
• Dowsing & Magick - So Far, and Yet so Close - Through Dowsing we can tap into any vibration existing in the Universe. Wizards use some of these frequencies to communicate with higher sources to manifest their desires. Let's talk about common aspects of both systems. Workshop with Alicja Aratyn.
• Sacred Rocks, Tree Preaching, A Dynamic Meditation and Fox Walk followed by an evening Community Ceremonial Fire - Albie Barden and Bill Bonnell will combine and expand their presentations into an all day workshop to allow for an in depth involvement of all participants with the stones, tree preaching and the practices of Dynamic Meditation and Fox Walk. At the end of the day, after the evening meal, we will offer an opportunity to participate in a Community Ceremonial Fire that is open to all.
• Busby Pebbles and Beyond - The Busby Pebbles are a unique and most powerful system of charging simple stones, with the help of self made graphics. In this one-day seminar Frederico Marincola will show how to prepare the graphics and charge the stones and will also help students to develop a daily program for their own well being.
• Physical Mediumship - Communication with spirit comes in many forms. With dowsing, you use tools like a pendulum to connect and receive information vital to your project.
• Tuning the Energy Body - Tuning the Energy Body provides the student with easy to use protocols to remove energy drains and open additional energy channels.
• Labyrinths: Dowse them right "with a little help from our friends" - Marty Cain will teach her method of dowsing labyrinths to place them in harmony with all life. We will begin with the rudiments of dowsing if needed, answer questions about labyrinths including their current use, their possible marking material and need for upkeep.
• Development of the Intuition - Please note: This is a split day workshop, happening on Wed and Thurs afternoon. Intuition is the voice of our soul & it's also an aspect of planetary consciousness. This workshop with Mary Swaine and Bill Crswell will teach you how to develop & use your intuition.

ASD Bookstore and Vendors Open - The National Convention is proud to attract some of the country's most unique and eclectic vendors offering a variety of dowsing tools, books, wellness material, and other one-of-a-kind products. The vendor expo is open during the entire convention.

Following a very brief review of basic dowsing, advanced topics will include dowsing theory, programming, increasing accuracy and tips on all aspects of the dowsing quest or search. The focus will be on water dowsing and will include a field demonstration.
• The Intentional Effect - This protocol technique provides a powerful tool to address health issues as well as emotional, mental and spiritual blockages. We can use this new modality to identify & clear ourselves of detrimental information and programming which cause diseases, illnesses and chronic conditions from the soul level, energy field, ancestral lineage, as well as from the DNA, cells and the space between the cells!
• "Opening the Third Eye helps to bring individuals back to the Whole... to the Holy state of being fully human." - In this workshop, participants will experience the opening of their own third eye, and learn the technique so that they can perform it for others. Bring a pendulum and notebook to class.

• Principles of Earth Healing - This workshop looks at some of the historical research into geobiology and geopathic stress and the use of geomancy methods to enhance crop yields; it includes practical demonstrations of earth acupuncture techniques and methods of empowering the land through dowsing and ceremony.
• The "New Human" You were meant to be - Learn about unseen helpers and how to connect with their guidance for the highest good of all. Come join us for some out-of-the-box thinking and doing!
• Shadow Issues, Limiting Beliefs and Judgements - Invest just half a day to identify and clear away self-sabotage, shadow issues, limiting beliefs or judgements that block or limit your good.
