I often get asked, “How do I learn Human Design?,” “Where do I learn Human Design?” and “Do you offer certifications?.” The first step is to get your free Human Design chart. I do have plans to offer courses in the future, but I don’t at the moment. Let me point you towards some really amazing Human Design Gurus, teachers, Analysts and Specialists depending on what you are looking for. “How do I learn Human Design?” is a loaded question. I usually ask the following questions: How long have you been studying Human Design? Have you purchased any Human Design books? Are you looking for a self-study, prerecorded classes, live classes or are you looking to become an analyst and spend a minimum of 3 years studying Human Design in a way that is more like getting a college degree in Human Design? Are you looking for software type learning tools?
Human Design Reading
My first recommendation is for you to get a Human Design reading. It can take upwards of 7 years for someone to fully decondition and really know and understand their chart and the Human Design system well. I offer detailed written Human Design Reports if you are interested in learning more about your own chart. I recommend that you take your time and really process all of the information by reading and rereading the information. When I first came across Human Design, I got many readings. It was so much information to process that I would leave my readings wishing that I had it all written down, so I could keep it forever. That is why I offer written Human Design reports. It is something you will have forever and you can look back at it 5, 10 and 20 years from now.
Human Design Books
If your answer to my first question, “How long have you been studying Human Design?” is, “I just started” or “I just got my first Human Design reading,” my answer would be for you to look into purchasing some books. A great introductory book is Human Design Discover the Person you were born to be by Chetan Parkyn. Once you have a good grasp of the basics, I recommend reading The book of Lines by Chetan Parkyn. If you want a simple yet detailed book on the gates that makes for a great reference book, I recommend Circuitry: A Complete Guide to Circuits, Channels & Gates by Richard Rudd.
If you have purchased the books above and have a pretty good understanding of the basic gate meanings, I recommend that you purchase Gene Keys by Richard Rudd. Gene Keys is technically not the Human Design system, but Richard Rudd studied under Ra Uru Hu, who was the founder of Human Design. Richard Rudd created his own technique for teaching about the gates that he calls Gene Keys. The information is extremely deep and helpful in understanding the different ways the gates can express themselves. This book is huge. It is almost like a Human Design Bible.
Another great book is The Book of Destinies by Chetan Parkyn and Carola Eastwood. This book is very detailed and has easy to read descriptions
about the incarnation crosses. Double check on the page where it says, “Sun in Gate” to make sure the gate matches the conscious Sun in the chart.
This is a list of my favorite Human Design Books. I would also recommend checking out Gene Keys Books and if you want to dig deeper Astrology Books. Another great book is The Definitive Book of Human Design by Linda Bunnell and Ra Uru Hu. This book is great book that goes deeper into Human Design than some of the other books.
Human Design Software and Services
There are several Human Design chart systems out there. If you are a student of Human Design and you are looking for a monthly service that will allow you to pull many different types of charts that are interactive, I highly recommend Genetic Matrix.
I wish you well on your Human Design journey. Enjoy the process! It is an eye-opening experience. We are so blessed to have all of these wonderful resources and teachers.
