Season 6, Episode 47
Available worldwide

Chetan Parkyn introduces us to the principles and applications of, Human Design, a comprehensive divination system which can help you discover the person you were meant to be. Many people devote their entire lives searching for their destiny, only to find themselves meandering endlessly without direction. Over the ages, many tools have given guidance into such matters, but lacked the depth truly needed. Broaching the 21st century, a new tool offering powerful insights into the blueprint for one’s life has emerged. This interview with Regina Meredith was originally webcast October 6, 2016.

An entrepreneur’s son by upbringing and an engineer by training, Chetan Parkyn has fully explored both the mystical and the technological worlds.He has spent the past 23 years mastering Human Design. In 2000, he felt called to make the system accessible to a far wider audience so he began offering trainings and seminars along with his life-partner Carola Eastwood. In 2009 Chetan wrote the first major book on Human Design.

Such a beautiful interview - absorbing, thrilling, fabulous. Thanks Regina.

sage wisdom for me

while watching this episode, I wanted this to not be accurate, but it is.
I am a manifester, (urban dictionary recommends this spelling and usage), and more than happy to have that small piece of wisdom in my data-bank.

Bob Proctor mirrors another wisdom node;
"just because you don't understand something, doesn't mean you should reject it!"

I'll be following through on this wisdom, and adding it to my repertoire right away because judgment has been suspended while viewing content on gaia, and necessarily so.

while the video content on gaia is often highly entertaining, I'm here to gain insight, wisdom and evolve over time. this has been the case from the very start, and markedly so with this host; Regina Meredith

intuitive in nature, this method stems from channeled data, purported to be recorded by human(s) made available and sort of shoe-horned into Human Design, a character / behavioral personality type model.

after watching one episode with Chetan Parkyn I'll be adjusting my behavior, and it's already had a positive affect.
I should hope others will experience these gains as well, and luck to you in so doing.

Thank you Ms. Meredith, and keep up the good work.
You always look marvelous.

I love Human Design. I may need to watch this a few more times, but it connects so strongly with me. Thank you Regina for giving so much to me over many years.

I appreciate this interview and the information shared by Mr Parkyn. There are many different ways to discover who you are...I have taken a number of them in my life. One of them which describes me as an ENFP or Extroverted Intuitive Feeling Perceiving. There is also the DISC evaluation profile Dominance, Intuitive, Steady, Compliant which I took back in my 20s decades ago. Then there is the ' Values" system which defines what your values are and the order of importance. I have trouble with astrology because the exact time of birth is not on my birth certificate ...and apparently no astrologer can help me so that path has never worked for me. I tried to have an Indian Astrology reading since western astrology cant help me and so I went to someone who could do it but still it was very limited because they hinge everything on 'knowing your exact time of birth'..... I have no one living... who even knows when I was born either .... I am a mystery......

So it seems that Human Design has a flaw... because it cannot help those of us who ..the universe decided.... NOT to let you know the exact hour of your birth.... or even if it was day or night time

I have done a tremendous amount of work on myself so ...any chart that is accurate will reflect what ' I already know' to be true.

In "real" astrology one can perform techniques of rectification to determine the exact time of birth. It is a rather advanced set of techniques and may take experimentation to be certain but it can be done.

hermescthonios, posted on October 6, 2016

Human design is like re-inventing the wheel with a squared box full of scientology pamphlets. Maybe give it a few thousand years and see if holds up to traditional astrology? I doubt it will. So far, it's a self-indulgent waste of time at best and a pyramid scheme / quasi-cult at worst. It replaces the animal motifs, deeply ancient and truly *human* stories with something machine-like and totally devoid of spirit. I mean just LOOK at it. UGh. and then don't get me started on it's creepy founder and his attempts to hypnotize his students with NLP and various manipulative gambits. *shudder*

Personally speaking, I started looking into the Gene Keys version first and that was just as complex to me as astrology, neither of which I have the time to spend on. I took the free starter test offered on the Human Design website and just THAT much description was so dead on describing me and answered a lot of questions about why I am where I am. I have now purchased the $20 report. Can't wait to get it. The other thing I like about this is it combines several other disciplines/wisdom. I guess it boils down to 'do what works for you'. I encourage anyone that it resonates with to try it. I'm thrilled! I also pre-ordered his new book! Can't wait !

hermescthonios, posted on October 11, 2016

"neither of which I have the time to spend on" -then why even have an opinion on the matter? Everyone is entitled to an educated opinion, if you want to just spout half baked ideas then expect others to call you on it. This muddled, new-age idea of "whatever works" actually *doesn't work* for me nor many (if not most) other thinkers and practitioners of "real" traditions. Yes, we assist in creating the universe and our perceptions and awareness can modify our experience but there is an objective reality upon which we all stand even if that reality isn't an "object' per sey.

I have no doubt that human design can be illuminating to some extent as it does base it's system on astrology, so naturally there is going to be some genuine reflection. My problem is what comes after. The re-framing of the human experience as machine-like "resonators" and "facilitators" ect, bankrupts the deeper stories of astrology that connect us, through narrative, to the earth and the living world. Not only that but the cult-like system places special honors on certain members of the population who are "special" and "elite" it's, no doubt, these individuals who are encourage to become readers and "dealers" of human design -For a price! Unlike astrology which is open to all, Human design is a closed system looking quite a lot like a pyramid scheme or *cough cough* CULT.

Further, The "mixing" of other disciplines can be inspired or insipid, typically the latter, and traditional astrology is already part of a larger hermetic system of thought. Trying to "mix up" Chakras and Kaballah is to totally miss the fact that those things are already IN Astrology and the Hermetic philosophies, all the while patting themselves on the back as if they just now 'figured it out'.

So, I'm happy that you are excited to get your report. I suppose I should just drop it at this point and not tell you that this whole system was channeled while the author was living in a cabin in the woods while a dead dog sat rotting in the corner. Nothing sketchy about that! "it's all white light and love" right?

I have been read in Human design, I have looked over their writings and listened to their "leader" and perhaps most importantly, I have listened much to the breathless, starry-eyed proclamations of the followers. It looks, walks, talks and smells just like a cult. Perhaps not a dangerous one, but a cult nonetheless. but, have fun, I guess?

Another phenomenal interview. How do you keep coming up with these Regina?!! Really loved this one. Thinkin' I might be a reflector. Will have to look for Mr. Parkyn's book(s).

It is free and was available in just a few minutes for me.
Going to go back and listen to what was said about Generators as I discovered that is what my birth date and time indicates.

Regina finds such great people to interview, I’m always delightedly enlightened. I wish when I was back in school there was a Gaia University. I would have LOVED my teachers and basked in the excitement of what I was learning.

I liked your comment, ‘a million chards of light just emerged from my heart’. Thank you for an artistic inspiration with this comment. I totally envisioned a piece of artwork I would like to do.

What a wonderfully fluid, resonant interview. So often I watch Open Minds and feel that the interview I've just watched is a new favorite, and then I watch another that completely cracks my heart open on a new level. Thank you Regina for bringing forth these beautiful gems into my consciousness. A million shards of light just emerged from my heart while watching this interview.

I LOVED THIS !! Got my chart and WOW. Thanks you sooooo much. Things I could not express where defined there. The guilt about my levels of energy being less than others that I put upon my self was astounding as I am a Projector like Regina. I get why my energy is as it is now. THX loved this one :)
