Rosetree, Rose

Rose Rosetree is an innovative teacher of physiognomy, the art of face reading, who has named her own system Face Reading Secrets. Following her graduation from Brandeis University, she became initially a student and then a teacher of transcendental meditation (TM). Among the highlights of her 15-year career was her pioneering the introduction of the TM program into the high school system of Miami, Florida, in the early 1970s. In 1974-75 she authored a syndicated column on meditation for newspapers in Massachusetts, and in 1981-82 she worked with the Environmental Protection Agency to develop a meditation program for its employees. This later program coincided with the challenge in the courts of TM's role in government agencies and its eventual banishment because of its religious nature. In 1986, Rosetree left the TM movement and began teaching independently.

During this time she began the study of physiognomy. She published her first book on the subject, I Can Read Your Face, in 1989. She continued to read widely in both the Chinese Siang Mien and Western texts, only a handful of which had been written over the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. Based upon her study and her own experiments in reading people's faces, she created her new system. This was also developed along with her abilities in reading the human aura, and greatly expanded the average person's ability to utilize aura reading skills.

Although teaching both physiognomy and aura reading, Rosetree, who resides in suburban Washington, D.C., has focused on teacher training, a key to spreading the practice of face reading, and upon application in the business world. The first book based upon her new system, The Power of Face Reading for Sales, Self-Esteem, and Better Relationships, appeared in 1998.
