Newsletter – December 2014

Warm greetings to you on this very cold day in Seattle!WP_20141130_009

Two days ago I was wearing summer t-shirts in the garden and today it is covered with a sprinkling of early snow and totally iced over. Everything is so beautiful.

This season of shorter daylight hours is the perfect time for me to concentrate more on research and writing. In the new year I will set out the next schedule of courses and hope to work with you in some of these sessions.

In the April 2013 newsletter I featured Tomas Young as face of the month to encourage each of us to become more aware of the moral and physical courage of each hero amongst us, and to be aware of their suffering and hear their voices. With sadness I bring to your attention that Tomas Young passed away on November 10, 2014 in Seattle WA.

I look forward to hearing from you as you continue to share your adventures in using the tools shared in these newsletters.

Wishing you well always!
Glenna

1. Facial features and their associated meanings – face profile
Paying attention to the face in profile will provide further insight into aspects of the person you are ‘reading’. For example, an ‘average’ profile where the nose protrudes beyond other irregular pattern of facial features reflects a well-integrated, balanced, even-tempered and tolerant personality. Where the profile is vertically aligned in a straight column the individual has the tendency to be matter-of-fact with acute powers of observation and judgement, one who learns quickly yet tends to procrastinate.

2. Facial features and their associated meanings – protruding v receding profile.
A protruding profile is when the forehead projects beyond other facial features. This pattern reflects a more conservative, practical and knowledge-focused approach to problem solving and there is a tendency to become egotistically self-confident. Where the chin projects forward in profile and the forehead is slanting back there is a tendency toward self-serving determination.

There are many more specific descriptions listed in the What’s In A Face? A Dictionary for Heart-Centered Face Reading by Michael J. Lincoln. This reference dictionary of facial features and their associated meaning can be ordered online from http://www.talkinghearts.net

3. Glenna’s reading of the November 2014 Face of the Month (www.glennatrout.com)

face_of_novThank you for all your comments on the October face of the month. She is mostly congruent between the ‘private’ and ‘social’ sides of her face, but when you actually do the mirror images you will see that the subtle differences are profound. Confident, kind, expressive and wise beyond her years (as visionaries most often are), she is practical, creative, empathetic, independent, ethical and invested in the good of all.

Most of you knew the photo is of Malala Yousafzai, the young Pakistani activist for female education and human rights. She is the youngest recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize, which she shared with Kailash Satyarthi who also peacefully campaigns for protection and rights for children.
.
For those studying personality programs: Predominantly ORD and Bootstrap with the addition of PANG in her ‘social mask’ or public persona.

4. FAQ’s – “I have noticed quite an increase in the amount of information and classes now available on the topic of face reading. Is there one agency that rates the quality of these?”

Glenna replies – I also am fascinated by the increased awareness and variety of information and applications on this topic. Even though the study of physiognomy/siang mien/face reading dates back through the centuries and is commonly practiced in other cultures, it seems to be more recently gaining recognition in North America. This is partly, no doubt, due to the ease of accessing information on every topic via the internet and social media. Regarding the second part of your question, I am not aware of any organization or agency that rates or even has a standard for this topic. If any of you reading this has further information, please do share it with me.
