Learn Palm Reading

Discover Yourself… Online Course with Kathy Keogh

Self-Development… Your Guide = Your Hands
We all know that no two fingerprints are identical. But in fact, the entire hand is unique in its pattern of lines. The lines are unique precisely because each of us has personal memories, hopes and individual character traits. This online program explores the basics of palmistry – the mounts, major and minor lines, nails, thumb, etc. and how each of these factors result in our very own personalized signature reflecting our unique personality, thoughts and experiences.

The Hands—Our Personal Signature
We all know that no two fingerprints are identical. But in fact, the entire hand is unique in its pattern of lines. The lines are unique precisely because each of us has personal memories, hopes and individual character traits. This online program explores the basics of palmistry – the mounts, major and minor lines, nails, thumb, etc. and how each of these factors result in our very own personalized signature reflecting our unique personality, thoughts and experiences.

The Lines Change
Just as we continuously change and evolve, so do the lines on our hands. As our personality matures, our attitudes, priorities, activities and companions may also change. These important changes are all reflected in the hand. A study of our prints provides us with a method of analyzing ourselves objectively. We are, therefore, likely to make more positive choices regarding our work, our dealings with people around us, and many other important aspects of life. We will find ourselves less likely to repeat old negative patterns. With time, the improvements we make in our lives will register on the hands.

By learning to understand the unique patterns in our hands as indicators of predispositions, we can decipher trends in our behavior. Armed with this information, we have the freedom both to confirm and nurture our strengths and potentials and to decide what changes we wish to make in our lives.

Much of the joy in studying palmistry comes from seeing how we can exercise our free will in more informed and effective ways. Each time we take a new direction in our lives, we are able to see corresponding changes in the lines and signs on our hands.

You will find in this program:

  • Profound insights of Eastern philosophy that can help guide you towards realizing a more joyful, creative, and fulfilling life.
  • Greater understanding of yourself and others by learning to apply the basic principles of palmistry – the mounts, major lines, minor lines, and wisdom and obstruction lines –to your own hands.

Excerpt of the Courses

Teaching methods

This course will be taught through lectures, reading quizzes, in-class case studies, homework assignments, guided research on topics, and exams given during class time.

The midterm exam will be given in order to develop and assess the student’s understanding of the basics of jyotish philosophy.

The research project is an assignment in which students will apply their theoretical knowledge of Vedic palmistry to the study of their own hands. Students will examine their own handprints, describing their mounts, major and minor lines. As well, they will be required to conduct a comparative analysis of the differences in evolutionary patterns between their non-dominant and dominant hands. Then, they will apply hast jyotish philosophy and theory to their analysis, in order a do a basic interpretation of the lines and mounts in both hands.

The final exam will be given on the last day of the course. Students will be expected to skillfully integrate material studied throughout the term, including jyotish terminology and foundational philosophical concepts, with the analysis of case studies of different hands. This assessment final will be similar in format to that of the midterm exam.

*Please note that study guides and instructions for exams and projects will be distributed to students at least four weeks before each assignment due date. Student grades will be posted within three to four weeks after an assessment or project due date via either e-mail or internet bulletin.
