What you'll learn in this self improvement class:

In the palmistry tradition, the hand is considered “God’s Road Map.” Reading your own palm is like reading a book about yourself, and the story the hand tells us about our strengths, weaknesses, relationships and health can help us make the best choices to achieve happiness. It can reveal when there will be smooth sailing and when we must put in strenuous effort to reach our goals. 

Remarkably, our hand’s lines change over time, reflecting how we have evolved. Our thoughts are the primary influence on our palms’ lines and shapes, so our palms are inviting us to co-create our lives. They provide us with a living text that offers us visual evidence that if we change our thinking, we can change our lives.

Join Ellen Goldberg, a teacher of palmistry for 40 years, for a fun-filled, experiential workshop that will equip us with practical knowledge that we will be able to apply right away to read both our own palms and those of others.


This program will be offered online. Sessions of all our online programs will be recorded and shared with registrants after each is completed for a limited time only.

This is a 2-evening workshop, and participants are welcome to take one or both nights.

Evening One—The Basic Modifiers:
 In this session, we explore texture, elasticity, the flexibility of the hand, the shape of fingers, etc. to identify what makes each person unique. We will focus special attention on the “7 Mount Archetypes,” perhaps the most important factor of hand reading.

Evening Two—The Lines and Special Signs on the Palm:
 Lines are rivers of energy and by their strength or weakness we can see how a person is doing in many aspects of their lives. For example, the “life-line” reveals the physical energy available at any given moment; the “head line” is an indicator of brainpower and reveals the mind’s stamina, clarity and capacity for concentration; etc.
