Course introduction with Jakub Stritezsky,
author of the pre-recorded video/audio lessons for Rave ABC

The Living Your Design course introduces many topics along with the Human Design System as a whole.

On the other hand, Rave ABC focuses exclusively on three topics:

A - Conscious and unconscious activations (Personality & Design) - covered in the 1st Lesson & Class
B - Hexagram Structure: lines 1-6, their values and frequency, harmonies and resonances
C - Circuitry: three Circuit Groups and their keynotes

This course brings a personal understanding of one’s design. You will learn to see the bodygraph as a map of awareness and trace how energy flows through streams (circuits). You will also expand your vocabulary to communicate basic yet empowering keynotes to others about their own design. Keynoting is a delicate art of weaving together and unlocking the key aspects of a design. This is the beginning of the chart analysis process, which takes place on a deeper level in the subsequent Professional training.

With an emphasis on working with your own chart and sharing personal experiences, classes are conducted in a safe and warm atmosphere to facilitate breakthroughs in your personal processes. With examples and exercises being demonstrated on the charts of participants, you will then be able to apply and integrate your learnings into your every-day life.

Circuit groups make up three energetic streams within the bodygraph. Each circuit group consists of a series of gates and channels. Each circuit group also has its main keynote.

In this ABC course with Human Design School, we spend a class on each circuit group, where you will practice naming and keynoting your circuitry activations. This will give you a deeper understanding of your design, its tendencies and over-all flavor of expression - as well as gaining insights for the designs of others.


Every individual activation (gate) has a potential to empower. When you function in alignment with your strategy and authority, individual activations bring change that results in you being more in your power. For example, a person with an activated gate 43 (Insight / Breakthrough, Ajna center) can empower oneself and others by their breakthrough insights that change the way of thinking about something.

Individuality is primarily oriented towards empowering itself and only secondarily towards empowering others.

Every Collective activation (gate) has a potential to share. For example, a person with an activated gate 18 (Correction / Work on that which has been spoilt, Splenic center) can share the awareness of what needs to be corrected, eg. provide constructive criticism on where there is a flaw in the pattern.

Collective energy is primarily oriented towards others and assumes that other will want to listen to what it has to say.


Every Tribal activation (gate) has a potential to support. For example, a person with an activated gate 19 (Wanting / Approach, Root center) can support others in getting what then need and in turn, be supported by them in getting their own needs met.

Tribal support is a two-way street and there can be a lot of “bad blood” if one supports but doesn’t get supported back.


For example, if you are predominantly Collective and want to share, but your partner is predominantly Individual and doesn’t want to listen to your sharing, as much as they are willing to empower you (or support you in case of Tribal predominance), knowing this dynamic can bring more acceptance and deepen your connection.

Knowing your predominant circuitry is very helpful in relating to others.


Study of lines and their values will open you up to a whole new dimension in understanding the Human Design. Each gate is an I-Ching hexagram and as such consists of 6 lines. The position of planets doesn’t activate the gate as a whole, but rather the gate in a particular line. This means that each line represents a specific expression of a gate. You can think about gate as a musical octave and line as individual tones.

On the right, you can see the main keynote for each line. For example, 1st line is all about Investigation. Any gate activated on its 1st line is actively investigating and studying its theme in order to find a secure foundation and become an authority on the subject.

Using gate 19 as an example (Wanting / Approach, Root center), person with 19.1 "Can investigate how best to get the support necessary to get what they need".

We will cover two lines in a class (1+2, 3+4, 5+6) and you will have an opportunity to speak about your activations in them, keynoting your chart and getting real-time feedback from the teacher as you go on.

This is how you first begin reading a chart, which is personal, engaging, exciting and also a lot of fun.

The Course Structure

You will get access to Members Area as soon as you sign up.

  • The course includes 8 lessons with over 5 hrs of total length. Lessons are released weekly and you can access them in the members area of the web.
  • Course also includes 8 online classes - each around 90-120 min long.
  • You can watch the lessons as videos in Members area, or download the audio & slides.
  • The following week, we meet in an online classroom (Zoom platform) to discuss the content, practice keynoting, share our experiences and receive personal feedback.
  • Online classes are times of live interaction, questions, sharing and support. We will be actively working with your charts.
  • After class 2, you will be invited to participate in study groups to have an opportunity for practicing your keynoting skils (working with your charts) and get feedback from fellow students.
  • The study group is a valuable additional resource that will help you to profoundly deepen your experience. Participation in study groups is voluntary.
  • The flip teaching format of recorded lessons & online classes greatly enhances your course experience.
  • The group energy and sharing supports you in your own process and experiment. The online classes are surprisingly personal and involving.

Dowloadable resources: audio recordings of all the lessons and classes & the visual slides, description of gates, channel names and other materials.

Check out this interview where Karla speaks about herself and her motives for teaching Human Design.


I was introduced to the Human Design system in the spring of 1999.  I was immediately struck by the resonance I felt with my foundational reading and the truth that spoke to me through the mechanics of my chart.  I began experimenting with my strategy and developed a personal relationship with my emotional inner authority and since that time my perspective on the world and my role and place in it changed forever.  I became an HD analyst at that time and gave hundreds of readings during the next ten years.  

Then, in 2010, I met Genoa Bliven from Human Design America.  He became my mentor, and I once again took all the analyst training courses to be current with the most up to date training to be a professional analyst.  It has now been over twenty years that I have been working with the Human Design System.  It has had a profound positive impact on my life, and I have seen the remarkable awakenings in the lives of the countless people I have helped introduce to Human Design.  Sharing this knowledge has become my great passion in this life.  I love the simplicity, logic, and user-friendly nature of the system.  It is a body consciousness awareness tool that can easily help us find our true authenticity and personal integrity.  I greatly look forward to teaching the Living Your Design Course as it is the perfect first step for deepening your understanding of the Human Design System and learning new ways to appreciate your uniqueness.
