Chetan Parkyn in the 'i am grful club'
Chetan Parkyn has spent the past 18 years mastering Human Design. He is more than a leading practitioner of the system. As the author of the first major book on the subject, he has made it his mission to bring Human Design to the whole planet.
An entrepreneur’s son by upbringing and an engineer by training, Chetan has fully explored both the mystical and the technological worlds. He’s been a deep-sea dive engineer and a devoted student of meditation. Travels in India and time spent in the company of the enlightened mystic, Osho, finally opened Chetan to his own purpose — helping people develop self-knowledge.
The details of how Chetan discovered his abiliites to do this came about through a reading he experienced from a Chayyashastri (Shadow Reader) in Bombay, now Mumbai, in 1979. Finding himself no longer satisfied with everything he had understood about himself, Chetan was guided to have a session to find some personal clarification. After having some trouble actually finding the Shadow Reader, when his session finally happened, Chetan was given a transfixing view of himself in all aspects of his life. He was told things about himself that he had long forgotten, barely imagined, or never considered important. At the end of the session, the Shadow Reader asked Chetan to come and work with him : ".......because you know how to do this kind of work."
Completely startled by the depth of the information he had just received, Chetan declined the invitation. The Shadow Reader just laughed and told Chetan that it did not really matter .... "you are going to do this work anyway," he said, "because there is a system that is going to come into your life, and you are going to write books about it, and introduce it to many thousands of people all over the world, and transform their lives.....and my advice to you is to find a way of reading for people that you like and practice it so you are ready."
A week later, Chetan met a Psychic Palm Reader who for 10 minutes showed Chetan about many of the lines and markings in a hand. At the end of the 10 minutes, the Psychic Palmist said : "That's enough! Now go practice!" And for the next 14 years, Chetan read for everyone who held their hands out to him. He also studied numerous systems of divination and ways of revealing people to themselves.....all the time wondering what this "system" the Shadow Reader had been talking about could be.
In 1993, Chetan met Ra Uru Hu, who had been given Human Design and first introduced it to the world. He worked with Ra over the next 7 years, beginning his journey towards fully mastering the system. Chetan’s unique gifts include a balance of technical skill and pure intuition. In addition, Chetan is a compelling speaker — fun, inspiring, down-to-earth and personal. Simply through hearing him, many experience the beginnings of deep inner change.
As Chetan studied Human Design over many years, he began to realize how few people had access to its extraordinary riches. In 2,000, he felt called to make the system accessible to a far wider audience. Chetan began offering seminars along with his life-partner Carola Eastwood. The couple also started training practitioners in the art of Human Design readings. But this was not enough.
In 2009 Chetan wrote the first major book on Human Design, published by Harper Collins UK, and in 2010 by New World Library in the US. Combined with powerful free software, the book makes it easy for everyone to create and interpret his or her own Life Chart. Recently, he and his wife, Carola created the first and only On-Line Human Design Reading. Thanks to Chetan Parkyn, Human Design today is becoming available to the whole planet. And as more and more individuals live in alignment with their unique design, the quality of life on Earth will change!
