Introduction to Face Reading

Online with Deirdre Courtney

This workshop is open to anyone who is interested in knowing what our face is telling us

Our face is said to be the blue print of who we are and who we are becoming, All our facial features and lines tell our story, what we have been through and when, about our personalities, our strengths and our weaknesses. When life events happen they mark our faces.  Our face is our story. Coco Chanel once said “We get the faces we deserve”.

Facial expressions are normal while we are expressing a emotion. Our mouth turns up when we laugh and we get lines at the sides of our eye. When we are frustrated or angry we frown.  When these lines are there when we are not expressing these emotions it is a sign we are over using them and they have become out of balance.

This workshop will give you a overview of the different areas of Face Reading: personality, health, emotions, match making and more
