Ra Uru Hu is the Human Design System’s founder and messenger.
Ra was born Alan (Robert) Krakower in Montreal, Canada on April 9, 1948, where he spent his early years.
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 a sudden and unexpected 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 was given the information for what is known today as the “Human Design System.”
Ra considered himself the messenger of the Human Design System, and dedicated the next 25 years of his life to teaching the System around the world, teaching people how to live a healthy life, how to make the right decisions and live with awareness.
Together with his family, he lived in the United States, Germany and for most of the time on Ibiza, where he passed away in March, 2011.
