As a British Society of Dowsers' Affiliated Local Group, Trencrom Dowsers has undertaken that its members will adhere to the British Society of Dowsers' Code of Ethics All members are asked to agree to adhere to the Code and the group reserves the right to expel those who do not adhere to it.     The main points of the BSD Code are as follows:

 

1. Dowsing Wisely

In your dowsing generally, and when people seek your assistance as a dowser, keep your dowsing focussed on issues of genuine need.  Recognise and work within the limits of your competence and refer to another practitioner or other source if necessary.

 

2. Dowsing with Respect

Only dowse for information that concerns you personally, unless you are asked or given permission by other people to dowse for them personally. Do not dowse for information about other people or their concerns without their permission.

 

3. Trustworthy Dowsing

Honest and trustworthy behaviour is expected from every dowser, and it is most important that you avoid abusing your position as a dowser.  Be careful not to use your position as a dowser to create or establish improper relationships, either personal or financial.  Never misuse privileged information that you may obtain through dowsing.  If people seek your assistance as a dowser, be careful to use your dowsing only for their genuine benefit, give guidance and recommendations that you believe to be in their best interests and share with them all relevant information that you may discover.

 

4. Providing Information about Dowsing

Avoid sensational or misleading statements, and be mindful of the likely accuracy and completeness of your dowsing as well as of the effects that your information may have on other people as well as on public opinion generally.  If dowsing for health or therapies of any kind, you must not offer guarantees or cures, nor exploit people's vulnerability or lack of knowledge, nor put pressure on people to use a service, for example by arousing fear for their future health or well-being.  You must not make claims about the comparative quality of your dowsing nor compare your abilities with those of other dowsers.

 

5. Respecting Relationships with other Dowsers

Be open, fair and non-discriminatory with other dowsers.
