Dr. Patrick MacManaway is a second-generation practitioner of the healing arts including earth acupuncture and geopathic stress remediation. Training first with his parents at their Healing and Teaching Centre in rural Fife, Scotland, Patrick studied Medicine at Edinburgh University before taking apprenticeships in both Western and Eastern approaches to landscape energy and traditional Geomancy.

Past-President of the British Society of Dowsers, Founding Member of ‘Circles for Peace’ and design consultant for the Burlington Earth Clock, he is the author of several books and CDs including:

In practice since 1994, Patrick consults and teaches in the UK, the USA and Australia and is regularly available for on-site and at any time for-off site consultations.

“A place can get dis-spirited just as we can, over time slowly or sometimes by an event of sufficient intensity to remain within the subtle fabric of consciousness there.  Patterns of thought and feeling of all tones and colors, footprints in the sand, awareness and memory of mining and excavations, of battles and land disputes, of the many overlapping uses and demands of the place from history into the present.”

One of the greatest gifts we can give as humans is the gift of undivided, fully loving attention.

When we give this to those around us, they and the space between us becomes filled with life and energy. We feel better – we like it. We create an energy field within which things can thrive.

Some understandings and techniques come to us from old systems rich in wisdom, others from new understandings gifted to us through our progressive technology.

In the simplest of terms, all of them come down to different ways of saying “I love you” to the community of life and intelligence involved.
