Ra Uru Hu

Ra Uru Hu was the messenger of the Human Design System. In January 1987 he had a mystical encounter with something he referred to as “the voice”. After his own experimentation, he started to share Human Design with the people he met. He would always tell his students: “Don’t trust me, don’t believe in me, find out for yourself”. Ra Uru Hu spent 24 years to share his knowledge and passed away in March 2011.

Human Design has been tested and validated by thousands. The magic of this system is that you don’t need to believe anything, you can try it out for yourself. What is your unique authority? 

Ra Uru Hu was Born April 9, 1948, 00:14 (A.M) in Montréal PQ, Canada as Alan Robert Krakower. He was the fourth child of an upper-middle-class family. As a teenager, Alan performed his own music and smoked weed.

As an adult, he went through three marriages, became a father to a daughter, and ran an advertising agency and TV production company with about 12 employees, and made a lot of money. Continuing using marijuana and also cocaine. At the end of spring 1983, he left everything behind and ended up in Ibiza where he lived outside the society, continuing his journey with drugs and as a loner. For a period of time he even lived in a tree with a wild dog as company. At the beginning of 1987, he lived in an old ruin. That was the place where the 3rd January had his mystical encounter.

After the encounter Ra didn't know if he went mad. To validate everything he learned he started to observe the moment of the moon through the RaveMandla wheel and how it impacted him with the help of an ephemeris. The moment the moon temporarily activated his Open Solar Plexus he knew that it was for real because he could feel how that “dead object in the sky” impacted the chemistry in his body.

It was clear to Ra from the beginning that the knowledge needed to be practical to work. After years of working with it and laying out the foundation he finally introduced the Strategy and Authority that helped people to align with our correct trajectory and ultimately become self-empowered individuals while experiencing self-love.
