Christopher Jones has been a leading figure in the world of handreading for over 30yrs. He is the author of over 15 books on chirology including a definitive guide to the 'History of Handreading'. He pioneered original research into health assessment from the hand, the effects of meditation on the hand and the hands of criminals. He has a Masters Degree in Philosophy & Theology and has been an ordained Buddhist since 1996. His training in esoteric Buddhism is infused into the practice of handreading to provide a thorough, erudite and enlightening perspective on how to live with integrity and authenticity.
The hands are at the nexus of the interconnection and inter-reflection of mind and body. Buddhist traditions of handreading provide the symbolism by which the features of both the shape and lines can be interpreted in a significant and meaningful manner through the symbolic language of the five elements, Earth, Water, Fire, Air and Ether. Handreading is a powerful tool for gaining insight and self-understanding into who and what we are that we might become more whole.
