If you attended our palmistry course, you may not be able to see much difference just by looking at the syllabus. Some of the course is similar (good revision!) but most of it is a different way of looking at the lines and other features of the hand, all based on the elements. Once you know the elements, you can interpret everything on the hand, it gives a more in-depth look at hands/ people/ life than palmistry does. I find it all very exciting and love teaching it! Hope you'll enjoy it too!
