Here are some of the presenters:

Dr. Patrick MacManaway

Dr. Patrick MacManawayBiography:

Dr Patrick MacManaway is a practicing dowser, geomancer and second generation practitioner of the healing arts. He has a degree in medicine and has several books
in print and CDs. Past-President of the British Society of Dowsers, he regularly teaches and consults in the US, the UK and Australia.

Workshop 1:

"Subtle Energies and Dowsing on Farm and Garden - A review of experiments, successes and strategies arising..."

5/23/2014 10 AM – 12 PM
Patrick has extensive experience of working with dowsing and subtle energies on farms in the US, UK and Australia, increasing yields, fertility and health of crops and livestock. Green Fingers and plant-whispering can come out of the greenhouse and garden and go to work in the fields...  

Workshop 2:

"The Keys to Grace and the The Art of Blessing - how to enter and maintain our personal state of grace and work daily miracles..."

5/23/2014 1:30 PM – 5 PM
All practices of dowsing, healing and manifestation require a posture or attitude of mind and feeling that is variously
described as "the dowsing mind" "the zone" or as a "State of Grace". Call it what we will, the degree to which we can
personally hold a peaceful, alert mind with an open heart and engaged intuition is the limit to our clarity and work as
dowsers. Patrick shares strategies and awareness from 20 years of coaching

Post-Conference Workshop:

"Subtle Energies and Dowsing in Agriculture - how best to Aim the Love to get the Best Results..."

5/25/2014 9 AM – 5 PM
Patrick shares more details from the previous workshops and offers coaching in how to get the best results when bringing dowsing and subtle energy practices to garden and farm.

Dr. Janice Walton-Hadlock, DAOM (Doctor of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine)

Dr. Janice Walton-HadlockBiography:

Janice (“J.J.”) teaches the art of detecting the flow of “Channel Qi” (subcutaneous electrical currents). For nearly twenty years, she’s been teaching this skill both internationally and as a professor at Five Branches, the highly acclaimed acupuncture college in Santa Cruz, California. Her textbooks for acupuncture students are: Tracking the Dragon (advanced Channel Qi theory), and Yin Tui Na (light-touch Chinese therapeutic techniques).


“The Dragon that Connects Heaven and Earth”

5/24/2014 7 PM -9 PM
You will dispel the mists of obscure Chinese-medicine principles when J.J. explains them in terms of basic high-school physics, a bit of quantum physics and, most importantly, their spiritual origins. The very root of Chinese medicine is the Channel Qi system, the famous “Dragon (waves of energy: Channel Qi) that connects Heaven (spirit) and Earth (material existence)”. In these workshops you will discover the Ancient Chinese science of the vibratory nature of all living things. The flow patterns of Channel Qi in a healthy person vary from moment to moment, changing in response to our thought waves, our surroundings, our physical activities. In turn, the currents and electromagnetic fields of the Channel Qi influence all the electrical processes in the body. When the Channel Qi flows optimally, good health results. If the channel Qi is in disarray, health problems are inevitable the channel Qi will affect DNA to.

Post-Conference Workshop:

“A Layman’s course in Medical Diagnostics Using Chinese Channel Theory”

5/25/2014 9 AM – 5 PM
In this workshop you will go into in depth processes, learning to feel with your hands, the vibrations given off by a human’s subcutaneous electrical currents, the electromagnetic waves known in Chinese medicine as “Channel Qi.” You will learn how to feel where a person’s Channels are flowing – or not – in this workshop. You will receive easy-to-use channel maps of the correct Qi flow patterns. You will learn to pinpoint the exact locations of a person’s channel aberrations, and how to correct those patterns.

We will practice performing diagnostics on each other. We will also learn basic techniques for helping others correct their Channel Qi irregularities. Many health problems, including pain and chronic illness, respond with stunning swiftness when Channel Qi flow errors are corrected. You will learn to detect and resolve problems stemming from the wrong flow of Channel energy.
