Face reading is an ancient art

Have you ever wondered what the lines, birthmarks and scars on your face mean? And what do they mean when you are laying your eyes on someone’s face for the first time?

You might also have the following thoughts running through your mind: “Wow! What big eyes/nose/ears he/she has!” and “Hmm, would he/she be a good husband/wife/partner/boss/employee/client/student/teacher/coach?”

Face reading/Mian Xiang is one of the Chinese studies of the Five Arts, which originated thousands of years ago in ancient China, and has evolved into a fine art of how to cultivate oneself, besides learning how to interact with others on a day-to-day basis.

“This is a skill invaluable in today’s world when encountering potential friends/foes, both in our personal lives, or within the business community,” said Teresa Hwang, a Feng Shui master and lecturer who has invited her good friend, Master Olga Garcia, to teach several upcoming face reading courses at Sparkling Hill Resort in Vernon.

Garcia is a Feng Shui master and world-renowned face reading expert who will teach a two-day beginner’s course March 27 and 28.

“This seminar will give you the foundation of a good face reading technique,” said Hwang.

The seminar will be followed by a two-day course for those working in human resources from March 29 and 30, which is essential as a practical application course to learn how to apply theory to the actual practice.

“Face reading is becoming increasingly known and used as a necessary tool for management and staff selection,” said Hwang, adding that the seminar is useful for everybody, but has been specially designed for people working in human resources. “The face is the mirror of our life and personality, and knowing how to read a face is the best tool; it provides us with the ability to understand ourselves better.”
