Hello curious human,
You've discovered the beautifully complex modality of Human Design, whether it be through a birth chart reading, a workshop, listening to a podcast or just doing your own research online. Maybe you began looking into your own chart, or the chart of loved ones (ps. you can generate them here for free!). It's exciting to first learn about Human Design, you feel connected to it and want to know all there is to know. But where to begin, and once you begin, where do you go next?
Human Design can be extremely overwhelming because there is SO much to discover! I get it, because I've been there too. When I first learned about Human Design in 2019 (read about my journey here) I really didn't realize how in-depth this system was or how impactful not only the knowledge, but actually using it in my life could be. It can be challenging to apply & embodying what you uncover. You may be asking, how do all the parts fit together? In order to digest the wisdom of this modality, it's often broken down into smaller parts, like pieces of an onion. But, the true magic is revealed when you can see yourself as already whole and complete & also very nuanced and unique!
To add, this work can be difficult to navigate especially when it involves experimenting with new practices, altering your decision making processes or caring for yourself in a new way. Human Design can have you really reassessing your entire life, creating new paths for your future and reflecting a lot on the past. And sometimes, this experience of unlearning who we are can be quite isolating.
This is how Collectively Designed came to be in 2021. This group program can to help you deepen your understanding of your Human Design, all while being supported by a community of others doing the same. Through it you will find compassion, clarity and understanding. Originally, this program began as a virtual offering, and for the first time ever it's available Fall 2023 as a in-person offering on Prince Edward Island! Plus, the program has been divided into a foundational (Level I) and advanced (Level II) offering - take part in one or both. Keep reading to learn more...

From your facilitator, Steff
I am a 3/5 Emotional Manifestor put on this Earth to guide humans in their growth journey (but I also love gardening and spending time with my fur babies Brackley & Sally. I combine my experience as a Registered Nurse in Women's Health, training as a movement guide & passion for mental wellness into helping humans foster a deeper connection with themselves & the world around them. I believe self-care encompasses more than just movement and physical nourishment, but tending to the human needs of self-love, compassion for others & finding a supportive community. I look forward to growing alongside all of you in this special community program and can not wait to see what we create together.

Member Feedback - October 2021 Virtual Program:
"I loved learning Human Design in a layered onion approach. I liked how each week built on the next. The program flowed very well and I was always excited for the next week. I also learned so much about myself!"
"I enjoyed learning about Human Design in bit-sized chunks and in a way that was very specific to me. I liked that we are all different but could learn together in a way that helped us learn about ourselves and each other all at once!"

One last note from Steff:
When beginning a journey of self-discovery, it can sometimes feel lonely. But it doesn't need to be. Community and group learning has been shown to improve feelings of belonging, boosts mental health, offers new perspectives & helps you find deeper compassion for others. When I began my journey into spirituality years ago, I felt alienated and like nobody else was doing something similar which is a big part of how this program came to be. I really feel we are better together and that self-care should include relationship building & fostering supportive communities in our life. So, if you have been longing for connectedness I invite you with open arms to join the Collectively Designed community.
