About Jennifer

Chirologist, writer, intuitive counsellor, hand reading teacher and mosaic artist Jennifer Hirsch has pioneered chirology in South Africa since 1991. She lives in Johannesburg where for many years she has read people’s hands and taught chirology.

“My life is richly textured, spiritually rich and hugely abundant in so many ways. Somehow my work has always been about counselling and healing with massage. I massaged people for over 30 years and began incorporating hand reading into my practice 23 years ago. Soon I was a teacher of hand reading and a writer, as well as being passionate about doing mosaic art. Blessed too with three beloved grown-up children – Adam, Nandita and Kelly.

My early handreading teachers and mentors were the late Brian Friend, who taught me palmistry, and Christopher Jones from the ex British Cheirological Society, who wrote and administered the home study training course that gave me a very good grounding in the principles of five element chirology. I founded the Chirology Centre of South Africa when I began studying hands in January 1991.

The ebooks ‘Craft of Hand Reading’ and ‘Traits of Being’ evolved out of the training manuals I compiled over  twelve years of teaching people how to read hands. The idea for my book ‘God Given Glyphs’ first came to me in 2004. It took me more than 5 years to write and compile. Much of it is channelled. It is a very deep, authentic sharing of my hand reading career that truly came from my soul.
