This week we’re talking about something very near and dear to our hearts: the science of Human Design. We’ve used human design in our lives and work for a while now – it helps us to understand how we can create more ease and less resistance in our lives so that things feel more effortless and less like an uphill climb. It also helps us identify where we have conditioning from societal programming that isn’t really “us.”

On this episode, we explore the Human Design archetypes – for example, the “people pleasers” that have been conditioned to shrink in order to not make others feel small or because they want to be liked above all else – and many more. We share how we use Human Design to understand each other’s working styles better, and how you can too.

Our biggest takeaway from the study of Human Design: life and work don’t have to be that hard. When you’re operating according to your true authentic self, you can create more flow. Think: what are the things you are putting a lot of energy into but not getting much back in return, versus those things you can do endlessly without getting tired?
