Classes & Workshop
Our next class will be held on Tuesday, January 14th from 6:30 - 9:30 PM at the Courtyard by Marriott University in Fort Worth. This three hour session is an excellent introduction to the art and science of face reading. Each participant receives an individual face reading and a lesson on how to begin reading faces.

Our Certification Work-
shop will be held at the same Marriott property as the class mentioned above. It begins on Friday, March 21st and concludes on Sunday the 23rd.  Participants will leave the session able to read any face. The workshop is limited to 12 people in order to maximize individual participation.

Congratulations! If you are reading this then you too have survived the frenzy of the year-end holiday rush. Every year I am amazed at how the population seems to double right after Thanksgiving (if you were judging population by the number of cars on the streets). The lines at the post office and UPS seem longer and there seems to be fewer parking spaces at the malls. People everywhere appear to be rushing to meet a deadline. Whether it is sending out greeting cards, shopping for presents, getting ready for a party, or just winding up business and preparing to pay taxes, we can feel this sense of urgency all around us.

Then, January 1st comes and we seem to collectively breathe a sigh of relief as we slow down to recover from the New Year's Eve celebrations, watch the New Year's parades and final football games on TV. It is also a time when many of us make our New Year's resolution to eat less and exercise more. While these resolutions may not last, it is still a good time to reflect on how, with the start of the New Year, we could make our lives better.

In celebration of this New Year and the start of our 5th year of monthly Newsletters, Ann and I  want to share with you our own personal thoughts and feelings about the impact of face reading in our lives and our hopes and dreams for the coming year. While it may be difficult (if not impossible) for any single individual to make much of an impact on the problems of the world, it is possible to make our own lives better. Perhaps our greatest collective hope for the coming year is that we can all experience better connections with our families, friends, neighbors, co-workers and literally, everyone we meet. 

Mac's Reflection

Twenty years ago if someone had told me that I would give up a successful law practice to become a full time "Face Reader" I would have thought that they had sampled a little too much holiday eggnog. However, today I would have to admit that nothing in my life has had a bigger impact or created more positive change in my life than my learning to read faces.

The biggest difference that I am aware of is the way I now see people. Before I could read faces I unconsciously stereotyped people. With the speed of our communication system and the abundance of information that we must absorb every day, it is easy to make a snap decision...to quickly decide what category that we will place this person, event, or news item in based solely on the information we received, even if it is a single source or a single meeting. Then, once stereotyped and categorized I would continue to treat that person as I would treat anyone belonging to that category.

There were categories of relationships like my family members, friends or acquaintances, each with their own level of importance. I also unconsciously created categories based on my assumption that what people did was somehow indicative of who they were and I responded not to them as a person but rather as a member of the category that I had created. For example, when asked, "Who was the person on the phone?" My reply might be, "Oh, no one, it was just a salesman."

Before I could read faces, my inability to see past a person's surface persona, past the category to which they had been assigned, or past my initial snap judgment of them (which was often based on a very limited experience or maybe even a single sentence they said) created a type of social disconnect. I would have had a hard time just striking up a conversation with a total stranger but I thought that was normal. Instead of realizing that the disconnect was because there was something wrong with my approach or even entertaining the possibility that I may have misjudged the person, I would just assume there was something wrong with them.

Now, after learning to read faces it feels to me like being re-born with a new kind of vision. I can not only appreciate the complexity of each person I meet but I can also see their life story as recorded on their face. Where before, I might have seen a waitress, a roofer, a plumber, or a judge, I now can see a courageous person who has faced enormous grief or loss, or a survivor who has beat the odds. But even more importantly, I can also see and celebrate the goodness in almost everyone I meet where before I would have only related to them in their categorized capacity.

The world opened up for me and life became a lot more interesting when I was able to share something I was reading on the face of a person that I had just met. To see the sudden outpouring and complete shift in the other person's attitude and demeanor when they knew that they were seen and understood has been utterly amazing. While the naming of the business was more a lucky accident, it has truly been a very Amazing Face Reading experience for me.
Ann's Reflection

With nearly every group I speak to, I am able to recount the first time I had my face read in March of 1997. Two things stand out to me in that experience. Mac immediately zeroed in on my eye puffs saying that I was pushing myself too hard. I was taking care of everything and everybody else and not devoting enough time to take care of myself. BINGO! My response was tears welling up in my eyes. Not tears of sadness but feelings of someone actually seeing me behind the shield I worked so hard to maintain. He kindly stopped reading my face but lightening had struck and that minute of having my face read became a life changing event.

Over the years I have read many hundreds of faces. I almost always run into a few people in every group I speak to with eye puffs. When I read on them what was so true for me none of them have ever told me that I read them wrong. Each of them have their life story of hard work and sacrifice but the price they are paying is not only making them unhappy it is also making them less effective in their service of others. I always encourage them to block out time on their schedule just for their own needs. One of the first things I did after having my face read was to cut my work day from 18 to 12 hours a day. It was still too much, but at least it was a start. I also made a change and began each day with exercise and meditation. As a result, I was a much better boss, wife and friend. Everyone noticed.

As for tears during a face reading, I see them as positive. They signal a cleansing of life's hurts, disappointments and expectations. Many of us work hard at keeping our chin up and a smile on our face even when our world is falling apart. Often when I read a person's face I notice a huge shift. Feeling seen and accepted and maybe even liked or loved for who we really are brings out our more authentic self...the one we so often keep hidden from the rest of world. What I have noticed is that suddenly there is an opportunity to relate to the other person in a new and more positive way.
So when I read someone's face and I notice tears well up I can completely empathize with their experience. I give them a hug and I tell them how beautiful their depth and inner spirit is to me. All that I wish for in 2014 is that each of us may take the time to connect better with every person that touches our life and reading their face can make that happen.

Your feedback is valuable. My goal is to develop and use Amazing Face Reading as a tool to see everyone more clearly and compassionately. I really believe we can understand every person we meet on a deeper level.
