The palmar lines are flow patterns of vital force on the palm. They provide an instant visual image of the quality of the patient’s consciousness that you are dealing with. This one-off introductory seminar specially crafted for herbalists, explains the techniques to make quick, simple, yet profound clinical observations from the palmar lines. Learn why Paracelsus said, “No physician was properly trained

unless they could diagnose from the lines of the palm or from the physiognomy of the body.”


Seminar Outline:

  • An historical perspective of hand reading
  • An outline of the Hermetic Cosmology of the three worlds and how it relates to the hand
  • Elemental hand shapes
  • A demonstration of how to make hand prints
  • Exploring elemental temperaments and skin textures
  • Concepts of balance, harmony and manifestation
  • An explanation of the formation of lines on the palm, seen as flows of vital force
  • Consciousness as reflected in the lines of the palm
  • Individual lines: meanings, origins and endings, length, curvature.
