When did you first “get into” Human Design? Who was your teacher?
I was introduced to Human Design by my partner in August of 1999 at Martha’s Vineyard. She persuaded me over the course of the summer to get my initial reading. I met my teacher, Ra Uru Hu, who was the original messenger of the Human Design System in December of that year. I studied directly with Ra until his death in 2011. Over that time I earned 11 certifications. To this day I am still absorbing his lessons.
Can you explain Human Design; What is it and what can it bring to your life?
Human Design is a relatively new modality that is meant to be a decision-making tool. Using your date, time, and place of birth a map is created which tells you the mechanics of meeting less resistance by showing you how to make a correct decision uniquely as yourself. You’re only as good as your last decision.
What is the big difference between knowing your Human Design Chart and your Astrology Chart?
Some people say HD is astrology on steroids. It is a synthesis of all the world’s knowledge in one complete system which includes astrology. Human Design also reveals for the first time our unconscious selves which is what makes it such a comprehensive system. This enables us to analyze not only your psychology but also your physiology, such as your recommendation for eating, sleeping, and your correct environment.
How can someone better understand their Human Design? Where is the best place to start if you are just getting your feet wet?
The best place is to start with the concept of your aura type. There are four variations. This is the beginning of understanding your decision-making process; the way you’re designed to say yes or no to anything. This is what our introduction workshop will cover. There is also a lot of free information out in the world, we recommend Jovian Archive as the most true-to-source information available. But your journey truly starts with a personal 1:1 reading. It is my true pleasure to be able to synthesize everything in a chart and give someone a holistic overview of their own uniqueness.
Do you teach classes? How can people follow your work?
Genetic Yoga is the company I co-created with a student of mine. It is an online community for those living their Human Design experiment. There is continual content we produce, community calls with discussions, and weekly workshops I lead. This is a one-stop source of Human Design knowledge that is accessible and affordable for anyone looking for support on their journey.
