Over a decade ago, in 2010, I created a podcast and FaceBook page called “Learn with the masters” with the view to interviewing experts or masters in their field who had a proven track record of helping people with debilitating or burning issues such as depression, burnout, relationship issues, feeling adrift, irresponsibility, and so on and then also interview my hand analysis teacher, and the teacher of all other master hand analysts, Richard Unger, to probe deeply into what insights one could gain about possible causes or exacerbators of each issue by exploring a person’s hands and fingerprints.
The idea at the time was to help my audience find the support they needed plus provide a kind of “finishing school” for professional hand analysts. All these calls were hosted on a website called “Earth School” where numerous people were interviewed in an open and free auditorium and then Richard was also invited to share his insights on the issue from a hand analysis perspective. A monthly fee was charged for these interviews with Richard which look place at first monthly, then due to popularity twice monthly and then eventually weekly. I called this weekly series “Tuesdays with Richard”. This expanded into further training with Richard because this is what my audience wanted.
We covered numerous topics in order to help former students, or students of students, update their expertize to include Richard’s latest work such as advanced hand shapes and to fill in the gaps of older students’ data bases, particularly those who had studied with him decades ago. On the eve of 2016, while at a Thomas Huebl New Year “World Work” meditation retreat, the Earth School website crashed (technically because I accidentally pushed an update button in the back end of my website) As a result “Earth University” was born (or “Earthuni” for short). Thomas’s work helped me see that I was trying to “fix” the world or other people rather than look within for the source.
We continued with Tuesdays with Richard in Earthuni for another year but by that stage I was so deeply into my own personal work, of exploring and processing collective trauma in my own family lineage, that I put my full focus there for a few years.
How to access the library?
All the classes and interviews with Richard are still available as a search-able library on both Earth School and on Earthuni. It is my intention to move Richard’s huge archive of classes to a new site called Hands University because Earthuni and Earth School now have a different focus.
Meantime, many of Richard’s calls are freely available to the public and others can be bought as a series, such as advanced hand shape, life purpose, life lesson, gift markings or heart and spiritual journey markers, threading (practice combining markers) and so on for professional training purposes. Access to the entire searchable library enables you to search for any marker or topic and quickly find all the places where this theme was discussed.
Find out more on Earth School and Earthuni or through the hand analysis shop on this website. If you like to join live classes contact me (firstname.lastname@example.org) or check out the current training page.
Richard has now published his yearlong course workbooks as text books that can be purchased by anyone interested in this topic. The good news is, it is no longer necessary to take a yearlong certification course to access this material. Hand Analysis 101, published 2022, is available as a hard back cover (three volumes. 1500 pages) or in digital format. This book replaces the workbooks for the yearlong certification course. I recommend that you take a basic course (intensive or foundation course before trying to make sense of this huge body of work. Also find a tutor who is at the very least a certified Master Hand Analyst.
Hand Analysis 102 (soon to be published, mid 2023) covers all the course material for the second year of study, the Advanced Yearlong Certification course. I recommend that you only purchase this book if you have analysed at least 100 hands using Richard’s LifePrints© system. A lot of this material is covered in the Tuesdays with Richard archives in Earth School, particularly the advanced hand shapes series and the advanced life purpose through fingerprints classes. You can access the free classes in Earth School to see if this is for you.
