The Importance of Balancing the Whole - People, Places & Landscapes

Updated: Nov 1



My wife, Linda, and I have been Dawson Program practitioners for many years. The Dawson Program (DP) protocol, which Peter and Anne Downie created, based on the work of Cam Dawson, provides the framework for our continuing work in this space. However, every client and every bit of reading and other learning has enabled other tools, which can kick in where appropriate.


Some 10 years ago, we were exposed to the broader range of earth energies, through the teaching of Dr Patrick MacManaway, a world traveler in the art of geomancy (working with earth energies). This was brought to Australia, by Resource Consulting Services (RCS) and he has been visiting regularly ever since. We completed all his modules of Quantum Leap training (several times) and for the last four years I have been understudying Patrick, as he consults around Australia. I, along with Kim Kiss and Deb McBryde (also both Dawson Program practitioners) are now carrying on Patrick’s work, when he is overseas.


We often recall Peter’s story about Cam’s rate of learning in the last years of life, where his level of understanding was increasing at an exponential rate. It is a safe bet that had he lived for say another 10 years, then the DP as we know it would be an even more expansive and valuable protocol than the one we use today.


One of the great learnings of life is that we, collectively as human beings, only know a tiny fraction of all that there is to know and of course individually, we only know a tiny fraction of that. The journey through life can be forever exciting because we can be forever learning. Many of the problems that exist in this world arise from a belief that we know far more than we do – and from the lack of humility which results.


"everything is connected with everything else"


Another learning from our work with energy and with ecology and regenerative agriculture is that everything is connected with everything else and that the approach of science in specialisation and research, through eliminating all the variables, as valuable as it can be, can also lead to fundamentally flawed conclusions. In line with this is our growing understanding that we human beings are just a small and interconnected part of the whole natural system; and it is an understanding which is fundamental to working with earth energies. We cannot engage with the natural system if we see ourselves as above it in a detached, superior and managerial role.


We love the new vision and proposed logo for the Dawson Program Support Network – congratulations to all who have been part of developing this, the new website and the framework for the program.

We have found the principles and protocol of the DP to be a magnificent foundation on which to build with other learnings. There is some overlap between these and our learnings in earth energy. We all know, for example, that meridian malfunctions can become fixed in space – a piece of furniture, a room, a house and beyond
