Level 3: Applied Human Design Advanced Training

Advanced Concepts & Holistic Analysis

Offered Once in 2024:  Starts February 5th

Welcome to Level 3 – Human Design Advanced Training Concepts – 11 Classes

This Level 3 Human Design Advanced Training starts you on the path to holistic analysis of a Human Design chart. Over these 11 classes we delve deeper into the fundamental components, study new advanced concepts and most importantly, focus on their inter-relationships. 

It is when you understand the inter-relationships of all the Human Design components, these building blocks of energy, that your understanding of a Design becomes more than the sum of its parts. You begin to see the beauty of a Design as a whole. This concept is expressed in the graphic below. 

The 11 classes are organized to show you the progression of how these inter-relationships are structured. As a result your understanding of  your own Design deepens along with your own sense of self and self-confidence.

As You Grow Your Capacity to See the Big Picture

When we grow our capacity to integrate all of the components together, the power of our analysis and communication of a person’s Design expands exponentially.

For example, you no longer just see a Generator Design.  Then see they have a 5/1 Profile.  Then check to see that they have Emotional Inner Authority.  You ‘get’ that they are a 5/1 Emotional Generator and would instantly understand how different this Generator is to the 1/3 Sacral Generator you worked with the other day. You start to see groupings of Human Design components as integrated super-components.

Can you even imagine the possible number of combinations of a Design just from 20 components? It is in the millions.  As we grow our capacity to recognize these traits individually and then synthesize them holistically our readings and interpretations carry more and more accuracy.

This is what Human Design Advanced Training is all about. I want you to be able to see the big picture and the glorious details all at once. 

Who Can Apply

Anyone who has participated in the first 2 levels of the Applied Human Design Training and Certification Program can apply for Level 3 – Applied Human Design Advanced Training.

If you have completed another Human Design training course and want to fold into this comprehensive program, please schedule 30 minutes on my calendar and we can see where you are at.

The Basic and Advanced Concepts

    • We go deeper into the basic Human Design concepts…there is always more to discover. I continue to share what is hard to find or not included in texts.
The Building Blocks of Human Design Energy

And then we delve into the Human Design advanced training concepts and start to weave them all together.

Applied Human Design Advanced Training – 11 Session Curriculum

#1:  Reviewing the HD Building Blocks

These components always serve as the foundation of a Human Design. Mastering these building blocks is essential.  Once mastered, additional energetic aspects have a framework to plug into and your capacity to integrate accelerates. 

  • Type
  • Authority
  • Profile
  • Life Theme/Incarnation Cross
  • Channels
  • The Integration of These Basics
  • Practices & Homework

#2:  The Wheel

The Human Design Mandala, the Wheel, holds immense wisdom. We will start to unlock the mysteries of the Wheel (the insights never cease) and learn how to leverage its wisdom to deepen our understanding of energy.

  • The 4 Quarters
  • The movement of the Sun, Nodes & Planets
  • Seasons and Time
  • Yin and Yang
  • How to use this information to deepen your understanding of a particular Human Design
  • Practices & Homework

#3:  The Circuits

Circuits, in and of themselves, convey tons of information.  In the hierarchy of Human Design components circuits actually land above Channels and Gates. You can do a Human Design Reading just from understanding and translating a client’s Circuits.

  • A deeper dive into the major Circuits:  Collective Logical, Collective Abstract, Tribal, Individual & Integration
  • The Centering Circuit
  • The Mystical Circuit
  • The circuits of plants, mammals & insects
  • How to weave the wisdom of Circuits into a Reading
  • Practices & Homework

#4:  Gates

The 64 Human Design Gates set the framework for the 64 states of consciousness, the 64 states of what it means to be human, that are expressed through a person’s Human Design. It becomes important to memorize the Gates and their essential meaning. Once you have that body of knowledge, then integrating your understanding of a Gate, its Circuit, its Quarter, its Channel is possible.  Now you are on your way to a more holistic expression of energetic qualities.

  • Gateways of Energy
  • Neutrinos
  • Gates and the Human Design Mandala
  • A Reflector and their Gates
  • The Life Theme/Incarnation Cross
  • Practices & Homework

#5 and #6:  Lines

There are 384 distinctly different Gate/Line combinations in the Human Design System. Do you want to memorize them all? Heck no! Do you want to understand them and anticipate what you will discover when you refer to the Rave I-Ching or Chetan Parkyn’s Book of Lines? Yes! Do you want to be able to appreciate the essence of a person’s lines without having to look up each one? Yes! 

  • A deeper look at the 6 Lines
  • The strengths and vulnerabilities of each Line
  • The Love/Fear continuum
  • How to study Lines
  • What to pay attention to for an initial reading
  • What to pay attention to for an advanced Human Design reading
  • The magic of certain Gate/Line combinations
  • Practices & Homework

#7:  Energy Centers

Energy Centers and their mode of definition say so much about how a person is likely to receive and absorb conditioning. Living in alignment with our Energy Centers, Type and Authority supports health. When we are out of alignment with our Designs, we can look at Energy Centers for clues to resolving chronic illnesses and unhelpful mental perspectives. 

  • From 7 Chakras to 9 Energy Centers
  • Embryo development and the Energy Centers
  • The miracle of the G-Center/Self Center
  • The value and the lessons of Openness
  • How Energy Centers get fixed
  • Energy Centers and illness
  • Practices & Homework

#8 and #9:  The Planets

The intersection of a Planet with a Gate/Line forms yet another dimension of integration.  The Planets bring their own energy on both the conscious and unconscious sides.  Understanding how planets relate to each other and how they influence Gates/Lines brings a rich nuance to your holistic analysis of a Human Design chart. 

  • The Conscious Planets
  • The Unconscious Planets
  • Where to focus based on your client’s coaching request
  • The potential source of a client’s deepest wound
  • Planets in Retrograde: a Human Design perspective
  • Planetary Returns
  • Uranus Opposite and the Nodes
  • Generational Themes
  • Anticipating the Future
  • Practices & Homework

#10:  The Big Change – 2027

2027 marks a major shift in the background frequency supporting our world. The effects of this shift are being experienced today. Are you confused and possibly alarmed by the social and political upheavals happening worldwide?  Understanding this global energetic shift explains a lot.

  • A deeper look at the Self Center/G-Center
  • The nature of background frequencies
  • Our current frequency &  its socio-political implications
  • The frequency for 2027 and beyond
  • How to use this information to ground yourself and your journey
  • Practices and Homework

#11 Integration & Review

The first 10 sessions are designed to bring in advanced levels of information as well as support participants to be able to analyze and communicate the information.  It is a lot!  This last session focuses on integration and review.

  • Q and A
  • Practice Charts
  • Common Life Circumstances & Conditions
  • The Holistic Analysis of Your Own Design
  • Review of topics on request

Your Human Design Mentor – Catherine Rivers

Catherine Rivers of Applied Human Design

About Catherine Rivers

What is there to say?  I can give you a traditional bio, but that is boring.  The truth is I just love Human Design.  I love it.  It is all I really want to talk about!

I’ve been studying Human Design for over 15 years and I am still learning.  The accuracy of Human Design never ceases to amaze me. The depth of Human Design always amazes me.  There is always something new to see and express.

I spent 20 years in the information technology industry implementing huge projects.  I was successful in that space due to my ability to simultaneously track a zillion interconnecting details and the overarching goals of the project.  I bring that same gift as I give Human Design readings to my clients. I want everyone to see the energetic nuts and bolts of who they are AND see the amazing person that they are.  It is all there, in their design.

Officially I am a Human Design Master Professional Consultant. I studied with Chetan Parkyn and continue to study and co-teach with him (to my utter delight).

I am also a Certified Professional Coach of 18 years. That training has me laser-focused on personal empowerment and the power of language.

I am adamant that all aspects of a Design are beautiful and empowering.  I have too many people coming to me having been told negative views of their Designs.  It breaks my heart!  My teaching of Human Design brings together a deep understanding of Human Design energy mechanics coupled with an empowering use of language that provides the client with a profound and transformational experience.

If you’d like to elevate your Readings, I will help you get there.

Much love,

Chetan Parkyn

Do you want to talk about Human Design?  I always do!  Please grab 30 minutes on my calendar.  I am happy just to share.

Testimonials

“From past Human Design training participants:

“I had been reading all the books and watching the you-tube videos to learn about Human Design. I got a basic reading and then signed up for Cathy’s Human Design advanced class and also her relationship class which were in person on Zoom. I really resonated with her approach and appreciated her many handouts and all the facets of Human Design that she covered. I have been able to begin giving basic readings for people as I continue to memorize and embody the structure and language of Human Design. For anyone wanting an understanding of HD, I highly recommend Cathy’s classes.”

Dottie Koontz, retired financial planner

 

“When I signed up for the Human Design training, my only experience with the modality was a little bit of work I had done with Cathy coaching me. I wasn’t sure what to expect, and I was absolutely amazed at the depth we were able to cover in only 10 weeks of class. Cathy is a phenomenal teacher, and I appreciate that she went above and beyond the reading we did each week to learn about Human Design in real life experience.

As a coach, I will use the information going forward with my clients to help them be their most authentic selves. Even better, I will be able to use the information to understand and support my family and friends at a deeper level. If you have a coaching or therapy practice of any kind, you and your clients will benefit from the knowledge gained in the Human Design training.” 

Lisa Thompson, PhD, Mystic Manta Coaching

 

“HUMAN DESIGN TRAINING for Therapists and Coaches is a dynamic, informative and insightful class, and Cathy an outstanding teacher.  I’m very grateful I invested my time and energy in this course as it has both enriched my life and enhanced my supporting others.  I came to this training with 10 years of personal application of the Human Design System and 5 years of sharing it with friends and clients. I loved joining together with others, who share a genuine interest in assisting clients in being their most authentic and best selves, in learning more about Human Design.  Our diverse perspectives and varied Human Design experience contributed to thought provoking questions and fabulous discussions.

Cathy’s exceptional teaching and facilitation abilities kept the course organized, interesting and progressively integrating. I learned new information, along with broadened and deepened in my understanding and practical application of this phenomenal system, in every session.  The knowledge gained and wisdom applied continues to benefit both myself and others.  Thank you Cathy!” 

Barbara Novak, Life Coach, Minister

“I love Cathy Rivers! I could not recommend her enough. I had her read my human design chart and felt seen and recognized for the very first time. This changed my life. I have since taken a course with Cathy on reading HD for clients. In this course Cathy takes you on a journey where she shares her intimate knowledge of HD and helps you become a better coach able to use HD as a tool for your clients success. I keep checking her website for more offerings, she is so smart, kind generous, I would take any class she offered! Thank you Cathy!!

Training Approach and Class Logistics

The Approach to Human Design Advanced Training

We will meet every 2 weeks in a seminar format on Zoom.  We will all be able to see each other which creates a lovely group experience.

The 11 sessions of this program will span 6 months. I want to give you all enough time between sessions to really work with the material.

Each session builds on the previous sessions with a focus on integrating the layers together.

I am always available between sessions to answer quick questions.

Each session:

  • presents new information
  • supports participants to see Designs holistically
  • has time to answer questions from previous questions
  • provides information on delivering empowered readings
  • provides handouts and practices to support primary texts
  • is recorded so you can replay the session for your own learning tempo and style

Human Design Advanced Training Logistics

  • Classes are held via Zoom.  I use a format where we can all see and hear each other so classes can be interactive.
  • Classes are held on Monday nights from 5:30 pm to 7:30 pm PST.
  • Classes are held every TWO weeks to allow participants time to work with class material
  • Total class duration is 5.5 months
  • Each class is approximately 2 hours in length
  • There will be assigned reading AHEAD of each class.  The lecture for that class will BUILD on the assigned reading material, and I will share information and insights not found in texts.
  • Homework and practices will be assigned each session to guide your study
  • Classes will be recorded and distributed the next day
