Ra Uru Hu was the Human Design System’s founder and messenger.
Ra was born Alan (Robert) Krakower in Montreal, Canada on April 9, 1948, and spent his
early years there.
After he earned a Bachelor of Arts degree, his career path led him into the business world as
an advertising executive, magazine publisher, and media producer. The arts were important
to Ra, and he expressed himself as a composer and performer throughout his life.
In 1983, he left Canada to travel, eventually finding his way to the island of Ibiza, where he
spent years working as a school teacher.
In January 1987, he had an unusual mystical experience followed by an encounter with “a
Voice,” an intelligence far superior to anything he had ever experienced. This encounter
lasted for eight days and nights during which he received a transmission of
information—what is known today as the “Human Design System.”
In 1989, after his encounter with the Voice, Ra Uru Hu wrote the Rave I’Ching, the
foundation upon which Human Design rests and the key to unlocking the code of our
genetics. As the oldest of the Chinese classic texts, the I’Ching, or Book of Changes, is an
ancient divination tool used for over three thousand years.
Ra dedicated the next 25 years of his life to the development and teaching of the System
around the world,
Together with his family, he lived in the United States, Germany, and for most of the time on
Ibiza, Spain where he passed away in March 2011.
