Canadian Society of Questers conference in Red Deer this weekend

The event started Friday at the Baymont Inn

The Canadian Society of Questers is holding its spring conference at the Baymont Inn in Red Deer this weekend.

The society is about “sharing ancient wisdoms,” said Jacquelyn Rose, Canadian Society of Questers president.

“Everything in the universe is energy, including us, our bodies and our thoughts,” Rose said.

“Us human beings are relying more and more on technology to do our thinking, feeling and working for us. We’ve forgotten … we are energy conduits. We are living, breathing energy and we affect the world around us.”

The conference will feature seven guest speakers, discussing subjects such as Qigong, Shamanism and UFO contact predictions.

“There is a lot of stuff going on on this planet. There’s a lot of stuff we don’t understand, there’s a lot of stuff we’re not taught about or told not to worry about,” said Rose.

The 40-year-old society has its roots in dowsing, which Rose describes as an “ancient bio-feedback technique that people have used for thousands of years to find water, find minerals and clear negative energy from land.”

Many in the scientific community consider dowsing to be a pseudoscience.

Rose said she hopes people leave the conference feeling empowered.

“Ancient philosophers and most of the biggest global religions teach people to go within – the answers are within, the power’s within, the choices are within. Nobody can learn for you,” she said.

“We offer information … but we don’t impose it. We don’t say this is the only way it is.”

The Canadian Society of Questers has held conferences in Red Deer in past years. Rose said it won’t be the last time in the city as well.
