May: Metal Face

A gathering at the NY Theosophical Society to discuss palmistry, network, hang out, learn something new, and have fun! Everyone is welcome. Complete beginners can learn, and experienced palmists can share.

Series Overview

Over a series of about 9 meetups (feel free to jump in at any point), we will explore the topic of face reading as described by Lillian Bridges in her book Face Reading in Chinese Medicine. Although not directly related to palmistry, there are many intriguing connections between these fields, and a study of both will enhance the understanding of each other. Personality is revealed through various facial features, grouped primarily into the 5 Chinese elements: water, wood, fire, earth, and metal. We will compare observations of both the hands and faces of attendees.


The metal element affects the spacing of facial features and often imparts a refined quality to the face. It relates to the lung organ and to emotions of grief and sorrow. Metal-dominant types tend to be reserved, cerebral, and sensitive to their environment. The primary facial feature associated with this element is the nose, as well as the cheekbones and skin. Let's explore this paradoxical element and measure the amount in our own faces.

Venue & Outline

We meet on the second floor of the NY Theosophical Society in the "garden room", next to Quest Bookshop. There will be a sign posted on the door. The following is a rough outline:

7:00 - 8:00 - Main topic presentation/discussion
8:00 - 9:00 - Read our own hands and faces


In line with the non-profit model, my goal is to collect just enough money to pay for expenses including room rental and meetup fees. My hope is that a consistent amount of $5 from everyone each meetup will cover costs, averaged over the long term.

    My 4:15 PM bus from the jersey shore was so late arriving into NYC at 7:30. Just too drained to travel to the site. Sorry I missed it.
