Dear friends,
Perhaps you’re still on the fence about this whole professional training, for various reasons. I’d like to say a few things about that.

This is an invitation to hero’s journey. As the saying goes, we are the one we’ve been waiting for. It is crucial that if you feel / respond to this opportunity, that you go on with it. That you find a way and time for this training, which is both personal and transpersonal.

On the personal level, you will get to know yourself way more and understand what makes you tick with precision HD allows. On the transpersonal, you will learn how to speak to others about their chart, pinpoint exactly the thing they need to hear to be more OK and allow themselves to do what’s right, regardless of anything.

We need to be more impersonal and radical at the same time. Impersonal not to let the mind dictate our life’s script and radical to follow our authority wherever it takes us. This is a never-ending process, the foundation of which is in our self-acceptance, self-love. That’s what Human Design is all about. That’s what you can personally get out of this and what you can offer to others as a way of support and empowerment.

The world needs us to be present and awake. If it’s correct for you, the world needs you to help others on their journey. And Human design is a great tool that you can use for this. If you hear this calling, don’t let the mind get in the way of it. If it’s about money, you can always pay in installments. If it’s about time, you can make it. It it’s about doubts, you can overcome them. As long as there is a sincere part of you that wants to take this course, you still have the time to sign up.

This is the approach we at Human Design America have to the professional training. This is the perspective with which we offer and teach it. This is part of how we do it differently from other trainings out there. And it will be my honor to guide you in this adventure to the best of my abilities.

Illustrations from the course

PTL1 is a three semester program consisting of total 33 classes, 11 in each semester. It is the core of the professional analyst training. It includes presentations by the teacher, demonstrations and practice of key skills in class as well study groups and through a series of assignments.

The PTL1 training is a combination of developing presentation skills, verbal clarity and fluid communication skills in reading situations. We focus on building a well-organized reading structure and the ability to present an understanding of personal transformation through the Human Design experiment in living.

You will learn an ingenious and simple reading protocol that provides a step-by-step structure to analyze and read a chart, based on its energetic priorities. This protocol was designed by a master practitioner and teacher, Genoa Bliven, exclusively for Human Design America. It will support you in presenting a truly empowering and comprehensible reading to your clients - in your own words and based upon your own authentic experience.

Hi Jakub, I am having a great time de-conditioning from the program. I really had no idea while starting HD that this was actually going to unfold, although I did trust my Sacral it would. I just wanted to say thank-you for your classes, they are all very detailed and detail is my thing. I have been considering who I would want as a teacher for the PTL's and I pick you. I find you informative, straight up, funny, I know you prepare and how much time you put in. I learn a lot when you teach so it is a good mix. I am just saying hi and thank-you for LYD, ABC and RC classes. You are awesome Jakub, thank you so much, really.

Student's feedback

Three Semester Journey

First semester: Learning to present definition through accurate description of chart elements, and mapping the chart as client sees it using a clear reading structure. You will be investigating the lines in your own chart and charts of your loved ones. In this way, you will begin to discover a synchronistic cooperation of lines in the design that tells a story of your life. Ra called this the genetic continuity.

Second semester: Deals with the openness, its potentials and acquired dilemmas, while providing solutions through the first three views. 

Third semester: Synthesis of the whole reading and ground it through integration with the profile. Our alignment with the profile is the whole point of following the Strategy and Authority.

Practicing and demonstrating your competence is an integral part of this course. By the end of third semester, you will learn to deliver a complete, well-organized, and finely articulated reading. Class instruction provides all of the necessary elements to do an efficient and clear reading in the simplest and most direct ways. To develop presentation mastery, students combine exercises to create cohesive, powerful and well-structured readings.

You will be qualified to do Foundation Readings after completion of Professional training and passing the certification exam. This course is the gateway to a heart-full, satisfying and transformational professional work experience. People can receive valuable assistance through the reading, as well as on-going consultations with you. They will understand how much information you have that can help them. It will be your job to deliver a clear reading and support them in transforming their relationships.

Students will also receive a transcript of PTL1 course taught by Genoa Bliven, head teacher at Human Design America, in 2013-2014. This is a wonderful & invaluable resource that provides an additional stream of presentation, transmitted in Genoa's unique style and mastery. You will essentially be getting the complete teaching presented through the voice of two different teachers and their perspectives - Jakub and Genoa.

Your teacher         

Jakub is an experienced Human Design professional and teacher with an intimate knowledge of the course curriculum. He has worked closely with Genoa Bliven, head teacher at Human Design America, since 2011. Jakub has an extensive experience with teaching live and online courses. You can watch his public presentations at the Rave Marathon online events here (Not-self is not the enemy) and here (Authority embodied).

What are Jakub's students saying
about his teaching style

I loved how you brought the students into the dialogue. You were warm and open to contributions, and I think you made everyone feel special. I have a renewed appreciation for the value of HD since starting the class. It was also wonderful to have Genoa’s Commentaries, as he has such a mystical approach to things that I really relate to. I really enjoyed being in the class and observing your teaching. You are a superb teacher and have a gift for drawing people out and class participation. HD needs more faculty talent like yours.
Marsha Madigan
Dear Jakub, the course was incredibly uplifting and awesome. I feel somehow accomplished, amused, and at peace with who I am and what's going on. Your patience, sense of humor, and ability to field all sorts of questions creates a relaxed classroom with a feeling of safety and enthusiasm. I really appreciate your teaching method, and your ability to handle everyone’s questions. It the right amount of polite and compassionate, informative and authoritative. I feel too like you address people in a way that makes sense for them. You’re a good instructor. Thank you.
Rebecca Rose
Dear Jakub, thank you so much for everything. After riding the over-excitement of being shown Human Design and studying on my own all videos, audios, Lynda's book, having 3 different readings etc., your LYD course was the best thing that could happen to me! It really made the difference to listen to such a beautiful, patient and clear expert and share the experience with others. No book or videos can substitute the felt sense of learning with someone that has lived their design for a while. The approach that you and Genoa have on really going deep into the essence of HD, how it is all energetically focused, how it is all an invitation to try it out and feel it on our own... made the click for me.
Dania Parente
I wanted you to know what a contribution your class has been to me. Your ability to communicate Human Design fundamentals with both clarity and ease is remarkable. The care and attention that you put into creating the recorded lessons really shows. In the live classes, you allow students to tap into your depth of knowledge and answer our questions with helpful insight and just the right amount of supportive guidance. I spent many months looking for the right place to begin a formal training in Human Design and after I watched your introduction on YouTube, I got my answer. Each new weekly lesson was exactly what I needed. I am deeply grateful to you for that and look forward to returning to study with you again.
