Enjoy this conversation between me and the wonderful Karen Curry Parker!
I’ve always had a deep appreciation for systems that managed to synthesize diverse, even paradoxical bodies of knowledge & wisdom.
When I met Human Design and began to study it seriously, I was absolutely blown away by its breadth and depth. As practical as it is mystical, Human Design weaves in modern science (quantum physics, biochemistry, genetics and neurogastroenterology -- the science of the 'gut-brain') with some of our most ancient systems for understanding the universe and our own nature (the Zohar/Kabbalah’s Tree of Life, both Eastern and Western Astrology, the Chinese I’ Ching and the Hindu Chakra system). It is important to understand that although HD includes both modern and ancient traditions, the translation of each isn’t exact. This is a true synthesis, where the ‘whole’ becomes something different, and larger than the sum of its parts.
What I love even more about Human Design than its depth and complexity is its utter accessibility. You don’t have to study it, or even believe in it, in order to benefit from it. You just have to be willing to give it a try, to do a little experiment in your everyday life. The rest is intellectual icing on the conceptual cake.

The work I do is with highly functional people, for whom ‘spirit’ plays a central role in their life. I do not give diagnoses, work with pathology, or claim to be an expert offering a treatment or cure.
