A Message From Master Joseph Yu

"What you will learn is not just some formulas and facts. You will learn the way to see what is reasonable and logical. In other words, you will learn how to learn. You will also learn how to practice successfully."


 I am proud to be hosting the first Feng Shui Research Center's live face reading class in Toronto this September 7-10.

Do you know that the face is an open book on the intentions of its owner? The eyes are not only the windows of the sole but they also tell us how that person will treat us. The mouth will tell us how well that person will keep a secret. The shape of the head will tell us what career they are in and the overall condition of the face will give us tell tale hints on the person's health.
There is more and lots more. With this knowledge, predictions like what is coming up in the near future and what has just past can be easily seen from lines, marks and dents on the face. The face will also tell you who is most likely to buy something, and who will most likely need time to process the information before making a move. It will tell you who you can trust.
Our DNA is the blueprint of our genetic makeup, our Bazi – astrology chart is the blueprint of our destiny and fate, while our physiognomy – physical structure and facial features make up the blueprint of our past, present and future.......the mirror of our heart and soul.
Our genetic make-up and destiny chart give us indication of our inborn strengths and weaknesses, our outward appearance will also reflect on that in a physical sense. If we know of potential challenges in life based on our facial features, we can change ourselves from the inside out, and also prepare our own course of action in life accordingly.
In our daily life, we encounter people from all walks of life, who can be our potential friends or foes. If we can decipher the meaning of every single feature on a person's face, we can grasp the essence of the person within a few heartbeats..........whether he/she is sincere, trustworthy, loyal, compassionate, dependable or sound of judgment. By the same token we can also discern all the undesirable qualities within the person.
Knowing how to read a face is an essential tool in our arsenal of skills on our daily life venture.........the adage that "to be forewarned is to be forearmed" holds true. Know thyself but do no harm to others...............
Please join me in this four day Traditional Chinese Face Reading study. The course consists of both theory and practice, and will give you a sound foundation of this impressive Chinese Face Reading Technique.
An Introduction to Face Reading
Chinese doctors have used the ancient art of face reading since the time of Confucius as an aid to diagnosis and a way of helping their patients. Close observation of the face afforded them a deep knowledge of the personality of their patients.
There were also professional face readers during this time that combined the roles of priest, astrologer and counselor. They were well-educated men with great compassion for human frailty. The Chinese understood the concept that the face represents the energies, health and fortune of a person and they wished to live in harmony with these, and with the prevailing energies of the five elements, yin and yang, and the seasons. This wisdom has seen a huge resurgence in the West during the past 20 years with the growth of acupuncture, Chinese herbal medicine, Feng Shui and Qi Gong.
Chinese face reading is as relevant today as it was in the past and its use is cross-cultural. We all have a blend of elements and all faces reflect part of nature pattern. Face reading first appeared in China during the 6th century BC, possibly as the specialty of magic men not affiliated to any religion. It is thought that they were probably Taoist shamans from rural areas such as Szechwan who specialized in non-traditional deviational arts. By 220 BC, the art of face reading was established in Chinese life and classic treatises, such as the Golden Scissors and Bamboo Chronicles, were written at this time.
The Principles of Face Reading:
The starting principles of face reading are the cosmic energies of the five elements and yin and yang. The elements are symbols and represent qualities of energy within each person that are reflected in the face. An elaborate physical, psychological and emotional profile can be built up, incorporating the energies of the features, the life points of the face, and the three divisions from top to bottom (forehead, mid face and lower face) which show the nervous, circulatory and digestive systems and the facial zones which represent the internal organs.
Each face is a map of the past, present and future. The past would be described as our inherited constitution, our mother's pregnancy, our childhood and adolescence, with either difficulties or support in the family, and our early years as we start out in the world. The present reflects our health at the time of the reading. This is something we create ourselves. Coco Chanel said: Inappropriate diet, persistent negative emotions, drugs, toxins and stress all contribute to lines, congestion, and colors on the face. The facial zones affected are related to the internal organs under stress.
In the same way that the feet are a microcosm of the whole in Reflexology, so the face shows the inner health status and the person behind the persona. The future is not predestined in Chinese philosophy: acts of compassion can lengthen one's life, and taking greater care with health can resolve possible future symptoms. Sometimes destiny and the ups and downs of life can be improved by facial surgery? Correcting squints helps one's fortunes during the years 35-40. However, nose jobs, which expose the nostrils and shorten the nose, can affect the end of the 40s.
Balance and proportion are important in face reading, as in Chinese paintings. There needs to be harmony between the mountains (the yang element, represented in the face by the bones) and the rivers, (the yin element which is the soft tissue).
Although a face may be considered beautiful by society, in face reading terms it may be too yin (upturned nose, large wide mouth, eyes too far apart, thin eyebrows). Many models have this look. In our language we have many expressions to describe character traits: pay through the nose, two faced, and keeping one's nose clean, chinless wonder? We may have forgotten how these came into a language in the first place, the mouth relates to communication, and the chin signifies determination, ambition and practicality.
So, face reading can be used to sum up a person's energies, to get a health read-out, to assess character, to help gain self knowledge and to plan for good health.
