"I justified getting on a plane and traveling from Philadelphia to Seattle
for a mere two-day Human Design beginners workshop because the instructors
were both, like me, Projectors....and it was my birthday weekend. But inside
I wondered: Could it possibly be worth it....What am I thinking......What
could I really get in two days about a system that on my own felt so complex
I might as well be teaching myself to become an astronaut?
I'll put it this way--Becky and Coleen inspired me to want to be
myself more than umpteen years of therapy and half as many spiritual paths.
As gifted teachers of Human Design, they bring inordinate intelligence,
beautiful sensibilities and a broad psychospiritual awareness to the
classroom. You can see the enormous thought they have put in to breaking
down the basic components of Human Design and making them real and personal
for a diverse group of people (at least in my class) who in the real world
would rarely cross paths.
But their real gift was having such a nuanced understanding of both Human
Design and the human psyche that no matter what we were doing, Becky and
Coleen were always sensitive to the subtle ways someone might be betraying
herself...........do what was socially appropriate............take action
prematurely.......... be too generous or too diplomatic.........do anything
that might--in some way we were too embedded to see--be dishonoring Who We
As someone who has spent close to three decades "seeking," I can't
recommend highly enough the experience of hanging around two exceptional
human beings who so get the freedom of living their own designs, that all
they want is for you to be impeccably.....yourself.
