Serving Individuals, Executives, Business Owners, Parents & Partners

In Depth Training!!!


12 Sessions + 2 Day Retreat

Beginning January 2018


Human Design is the most effective and profound tool in my coaching and consulting toolbox so I am immensely excited to offer this 12 week Human Design Training for Coaches and Therapists.  

Our work accelerates when we dial into our clients and their essential nature with precision and speed.  My clients consistently tell me how deeply seen and understood they feel in such a short time frame.  Clients want to take on their homework, action items and practices because my undestanding of their Human Design allows me to frame their exercises to explicitly match how they process.  As clients learn more about their own energy mechanics, their confidence, self-awareness, their self-determination and ability to move forward grows exponentially.  Imagine what this can do for your clients and your practice!

Read on to learn more about my training program for coaches and therapists.  Or, just contact me and we can have a conversation.

Wishing you all the best, Cathy

Approach & Philosophy for this Training

1.  Learn Human Design Theory

2.  Launch Your Own Human Design Experiment

3.  Apply This Knowledge in Your Practice

The Many Layers of Human Design

This training is designed to introduce you to about 20 aspects of Human Design, that when taken all together, help you see a person as a complex whole.  One of my analogies for Human Design is that of a beautiful collage made up of overlapping layers of tissue paper.  As you lay down the first layer, we get excited at the beauty we can see.  But then you add another layer in a different hue and the collage changes and the beauty enhances.

Over the course of the 12 sessions and the 2-day retreat, we are going to create a beautiful human design collage together.  And with each new layer you will marvel at the understanding it provides about the nature of being human:  how our auras function, our life tempo, our inner guidance mechanics, etc.  These layers are described in greater detail further down in the training curriculum.

For me, there is a danger in applying Human Design in our work if our picture isn’t broad enough.  At a recent gathering I was describing the aura of generators and one participant spoke up (thankfully) and said that this didn’t  describe her at all.  Looking at her design, she had other relatively rare design aspects that colored over the main aspects of being a generator.  When I brought in the other details and added these dimensions to the big picture of who she is, she felt completely seen and validated.

I am someone who sees the forest and the trees simultaneously.  I want to help you see this bigger picture of Human Design, to see all the layers of the collage.

There is a conundrum inherent in studying Human Design:  We must learn Human Design mentally, one aspect at a time.  Yet the practice of Human Design is energetic and experiential!   So I am setting up each class to train participants from three perspectives:  human design theory, applying human design in our own lives and how to employ human design in our practices of supporting others.

Who is This Training For?

This training is for professionals who support others through any form coaching (life coaching, business coaching, career coaching etc) and/or therapy.  You don’t need to have prior knowledge of Human Design.  But, if you are completely new to Human Design, or haven’t had a private reading of your own design, I urge you to do that ASAP.

How is the Training Organized?

Each of the weekly 12 sessions are 90-minutes in length and will be held virtually via a webinar-style platform.  The sessions will start at 6pm PST and be on either a Tuesday or Wednesday night (TBD).  The sessions will be recorded so you can watch any session you can’t attend and replay each session as you desire.

There will be assigned reading each week.  We will review the week’s reading and then I will share additional information not found in texts, adding to your understanding of each concept.  Each class we will talk about how you deepen your own experiment with Human Design and the implications in working with clients.  Throughout the class we will be using Designs from each of us and from my files to further understand this material.

At the end of the 12 weeks, everyone has the option to participate in a 2 day retreat in Olympia WA.  During this retreat we will bring our studies all together as we learn how to use Human Design in supporting relationships of all kinds:  marriages, friendships, families, parenting and teams.

2 Day Retreat


Marriages, Friendships, Families, Parenting & Teams

 March 31 and April 1

I just can’t do a 12 week class without including the option for everyone to gather in person!  Therefore we will end the training with an optional, 2 day in-person retreat.


The 2 day retreat will focus on using Human Design in coaching and counselling relationships and families, with an emphasis on parenting.  Looking at Human Design for relationships and parenting, naturally has us bring all of the class material together with a single focus.  We will also take time during the retreat to cover any topics needing more information or clarity.

Proximity Impacts Designs

When people come together their energy merges and they truly have a new energy design.  We will look at the energy mechanics of friendship, chemistry, compromise and surrender as seen through Designs.  With practice it is easy to see what energetically brings people together, and, where they are likely to experience differences that may manifest as challenges in their relationship.

Human Design is actually most beneficial for children.  Imagine the impact of being raised and nourished in accordance with your energetic design!

Case Studies

Everyone will be encouraged to bring the Designs of significant people in their lives so you can study your relationships and get support during class.

I will also be providing designs that demonstrate many of the rarer aspects that can make up a person’s design.

We will be using all of these examples to tie all of the coursework together.


The 2-day retreat will be held March 31 and April 1 in Olympia, WA at Dancing Cedars Retreat Center.
