Episode #57: Erin Claire Jones // Human Design Guide & Leadership Coach // Human Design: 101

This week we dove into a new topic that we’re SO excited to share with you!

A little background…human design is basically the manual to YOU. Founded by media executive and art enthusiast, Ra Uru Hu, the ancient-meets-modern-science is a synthesis of spiritual studies including, but not limited to: astrology, the I Ching, the Chakras, and the Kabbalah. Hu first found the system in 1987 in the heart of Ibiza, but it is studied worldwide today (thank you Erin and Forbes article for this background!).

Human design gives us insight into how we are all uniquely wired, and there are four types - generators (70% of the population), projectors (20% of the population), manifestors (9% of the population) and reflectors (1% of the population). Look up your human design HERE!

This week, we have an amazing powerhouse duo on the pod - Cameron and Alfred of VitalFit.

Sick of taking ibuprofen and having no luck finding a natural alternative they felt like something was missing.
