Discovering Your Unique Design

Some ways to discover your unique design....to grok
Information & free materials
Buy cds, books, etc.
Take a class
the Human Design System? There are many excellent sites that provide great
information on Human Design, so rather than "reinvent the info wheel",
here are web addresses to the ones I know & love best.
To begin, you'll benefit most by having your Human Design chart as you
look through other sites. Get your a
- go to the Jovian site to fill out the information to view your chart. Or go to
the IHDS site for your chart
here. You can
also download the
Click on the Download Free Edition button.
You will be able to try all of the features for a week. After that you need
to purchase a different edition for the features you want, which are listed
on that page.
By getting your chart and seeing what Type you are, you can begin
to experiment with your Strategy & Authority which aligns you to
your true nature. All of the web sites on this page
describe Strategy & Authority. An analysis will give deeper knowledge, synthesis and
guidance with your experiment.

* Human Design America
www.humandesignamerica.com. It is also a great place to start. Lots of
easy to understand information and a listing of all IHDS certified analysts
and teachers living in the U.S. Also includes info on children which other
sites don't have.
* Human Design UK at
https://www.humandesign.info/. Provides a lot of depth, including info on the
not-self by type.

helpful when learning different aspects of design (e.g. red gates, black
gates, circuits). Right click here and

(reading) from someone certified by the Human
Design Standards Board (like me). All you really need
to know is your strategy based on your type, and your authority for making
decisions. That's it. Experiment with them. Try them. The rest of the resources
on this page are mind-candy, and are very interesting, but not necessary to live
out who you are. (Projectors need to learn more about themselves and others,
An analysis will help you understand the synthesis of your whole chart,
including your type, authority, definition, profile, the pressures on your openness and
characteristics of the defined centers. Depending on the analyst, you will receive "more"
based on their
unique interpretative gift, whatever that may be.
You will find certified analysts' names listed on
these web sites:
- The IHDS list of certified Professionals
here. (I'm listed
way, way down at the bottom under United States/Washington.)
- Certified Analysts and Teachers in the United States at
Human Design America
Buy some courses, cds, books, etc....all
three sites provide excellent materials. Your authority will guide you to the
correct ones. A list of many of the Human Design resources and where they can be
purchased is linked below.
Warning: Now I speak from my experience of my design. Beware of the
open head/mind that thoroughly enjoys everything, and will become
a not-self authority who flies through all disposable income, maxes credit
cards, and then spends the entire savings account or inheritance on design
materials! On top of that, if you have a 4th line in your profile, or have a
lot of 4th lines (I have 10), you may be pulled to have a least a couple of
extra cds or books on hand to study. Use your authority to decide!
If you're a 1st line investigative person (in your profile) like I am,
and if you're logical (like I am) you may be guided to progress roughly as
follows: learn about design/Ra, then get your free chart, then read online about
your type, centers, and profile. Then you'll buy some cds, hear about the
dastardly "not-self" from the gotta-have "Dilemma of the Not-Self" cd, and, sucking in
air, go deeper into the meaning and impact of these open centers hoping to
exorcise your not-self. Then, if you're lucky, someone will tell you about
the "Nature & Nurture" cd, where at last you can exhale and know that you're
okay after all. Both cds are important to help you process your not-self. You'll just adjust over the next 7 years to being your true
self who isn't "caught in the characteristics". Hopefully, you may have chosen another path - to have a
reading first - giving you a faster and deeper foundation for leaping into
the next cool thing. For many, one reading is all they want or need.
(Not Projectors! They want it all!)
The best, most comprehensive book on this system:
Human Design: The Definitive Book of Human Design, The
Science of Differentiation
is available on
Amazon or Human Design America for the same base price of $49.95 USD.
Take a Class
- Jovian Archive provides an archive of many interesting classes
taught by Ra that were held online through the online classroom. Also listed
is details about the Annual Event
held in the Spring of each year, either in Toronto, Canada or in Ibiza,
Spain. Many classes are open to anyone, and others are for the continuing
education of certified analysts/teachers.
- Living Your Design Workshop - After having an analysis, I
invite you to take the next "formal" step, which is this class. Based on the
Living Your Design book, this class goes deeply into each type,
splits, and the characteristics of each center, whether defined and
undefined. Classes are offered by certified teachers
like me, listed on the
Human Design America site
here. Whether to take the class in person or online is a
personal decision. Some people learn best in the aura of others, with others it doesn't matter. Some teachers teach differently in person vs. at
a distance. Ask your authority for its recommendation - it's the boss.
Learning & Resource Guide
Human Design offers a
certification program for people who want to become
teachers. You can also
become certified in several
if you meet the prerequisites. Most of us wander through
web sites, reading very basic information, and maybe buying a few CDs and books
that look interesting. There is a hierarchy, of sorts, to the process of
learning the Human Design System. You know, building a foundation by learning
the simple first, and then moving to the more complex. Sometimes it's helpful to
have a guide through the mazes of learning opportunities and resources
Remember that learning begins with generalizations, and then as you begin to
understand the many aspects of your self, your holistic self will become more
clear over time, especially after a Foundation Analysis. Each one of us is
unique and different - we are not generalizations, but that is where our
understanding begins. It is not easy for these different aspects to be
synthesized and understood with a report, video, book, etc. A human can

to fit the inside front cover and tape it. I use it all the time.
