Richard Creightmore M.A. (Oxon.), B.Ac., M.B.Ac.C., has been studying Geomancy from the Chinese, Celtic and other traditions since 1979, and practising professionally since 1986. A Geography degree at Worcester College, Oxford (1980) was followed by explorations into the British earth mysteries and work with leading dowsers. A degree in Acupuncture and the study of herbal medicine, cranio-sacral therapy and other healing arts led to his establishing an holistic medical practice in 1985. This he combines with his Feng Shui consultancy and lecturing. In the past two years Richard has studied Feng Shui in China with Professor Wang Yude and Professor Cheng Jianjun.

Visitors since October 1997

Hey - I can dowse! I discovered at one of Richard Creightmore's courses at the beginning of May. We were geomantically dowsing then but I find I can reliably pick up drain pipes, sewer pipes, fresh water mains and electricity cables. It defies conventional science but it works! David Pinnegar at I've also picked up something called the Hartmann grid which covers the globe and manifests itself to a variable extent: the rods close on 1.4m centres on lines of approximately north - south orientation. Does anyone know more about this?

The explanation can only be a gravitational with linkage to our brains by way of the gravitational and electrical assymetry of the water molecule.
What fascinates me is that these phenonomae affect the brain and our rods when the rods are in our hands. They must also do do when we do not have the rods in our hands! David Pinnegar at Hammerwood Park beleives dowsing to be associated with gravitational variations and waves and has experimented in the Egyptian pyramids
